Today’s Take Your Kid To Work Day, so I had the chance to talk about sports with a special guest named Harry. (Harry is not my kid.) We covered the NFL, Johnny Manziel, CTE, and a little bit of the NBA. Harry has many opinions, and he really likes Phil Simms.
And the winner of yesterday’s London Marathon is...this fucker:
Athletics outfielder Chris Coghlan’s two-run homer in Thursday’s game bummed out one small Yankees fan. When a woman sitting next to him started to clap, he swiftly scolded her for supporting Oakland.
A ball boy at the Barcelona Open experienced the hazards of his occupation while running back to his spot. The poor kid tripped into the court wall during today’s match between Teymuraz Gabashvili and Nicolas Almagro.
I know absolutely nothing about this video or this kid, other than that this child of unknown origin has a taste for snatching the souls of his opponents with his incredible skills and that he needs to get onto the USMNT ASAP:
Little man here must live in a state of perpetual basketball disappointment: his hometown team is the New Orleans Pelicans, and he likes Carmelo Anthony. So if Carmelo Anthony is in town and he has tickets in the lower bowl, he’s going to sprint onto the court and get a hug, dadgummit.
If you think today’s big-leaguers are a bunch of disrespectful rapscallions, wait until you get a load of Bryce Harper Jr. over here:
Adam LaRoche and his 14-year-old son Drake aren’t with the White Sox anymore; the first baseman walked away from the team on Tuesday after Kenny Williams asked him to reduce Drake’s time around the clubhouse. This unique MLB controversy gets more confusing, however. Today, reports claim that White Sox players…
Admire the persistence of this young fan who was eating ice cream during Sunday’s Blackhawks game. This kid doesn’t waste a movement. We need better analysis of the cone attack, though. Thankfully, Blackhawks color commentator Eddie Olczyk was willing to oblige.
A remarkable photo here from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photographer Christopher Horner, capturing the split second a quick-thinking fan reached out and deflected a bat that appeared on a collision course for a kid’s face.
Tiger Woods just opened a new golf course in Montgomery, Tex., and he played the course’s inaugural round with some kids. One of those kids was 11-year-old Taylor Crozier, who stepped up the first tee and dropped in an ace.
We did it, everyone. We made it through a long, boring week without any sports on but hockey. (Even though hockey is good and you should try it.) Celebrate with this child getting owned repeatedly.
Texas A&M beat Iowa State this afternoon after ending the game on a 16-4 run. Cyclones star George Niang fouled out with 15 points, but was apparently too slow getting off the court for this lil’ fan.
A 4-year-old fan named Lucas showed up at Wednesday night’s Warriors game to ask if Riley Curry, the Sports Baby of 2015, would be his valentine. He had a sign and an eager expression that was just waiting to be shot down.
One day after a Senators fan asked Bobby Ryan to score a goal for puppy-related reasons, a Blue Jackets fan asked winger Cam Atkinson to score on her birthday so she could get a dog. She chose the right player.
Reader Chris sends along a clip of his 7-year-old twin sons, with the traditional post-fight handshake following their wrestling match. We could all learn a thing or two about being a gracious loser from these boys.
After a first-grade class at an elementary school wrote encouraging letters to Blair Walsh, who duffed a kick that would have allowed the Vikings to beat the Seahawks, he visited the kids today at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine, Minn. The meet-and-greet featured autographs, conversations, and a question about…
This week, Minnesota elementary school teacher Judie Offerdahl took the opportunity to turn Blair Walsh’s shank into a lesson about empathy for her kids. The first-graders at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine wrote some pretty adorable letters to the Vikings kicker.
Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has fathered 10 children, so it made plenty of sense when he decided to get a vasectomy, because 10 children is plenty of children. Today, we learned that not even a procedure that leaves most couples with a less than 1-percent chance of getting pregnant can stop the raw, life-giving…
