This is great. Last night, the Pirates’ broadcast touted Sunday’s kids day, where all fans 14 and under in attendance would be given a free baseball glove. To go along with the promotion, the broadcast showed kids in the stands.
The accuracy of this tyke’s shot is obviously impressive as hell, but what I am here for is the taunting of the candle. This child is going to have a long and polarizing career, at least unless the candle comes back at him studs-up.
Spring is here. The weather is warm and the flowers are blooming and we, the too-lucky denizens of the hockey internet, are once again blessed with a bumper crop of names from the 14- and 15-year-old hockey players taken in yesterday’s WHL Bantam Draft. We have delighted in these drafts for a couple of years, and it…
This little Ron Baker lookalike thought he could sneak one by Ben Simmons, but little did he know, the dude is closer to healthy now and he’s also supposedly seven feet tall.
In South Carolina coach Frank Martin’s postgame press conference last night, preteen Sports Illustrated Kids reporter Max Bonnstetter asked an interesting and well-formulated question—one that, somehow, upset a handful of “adult” journalists:
Before Jordan Mathews was a basketball player on Gonzaga, he was a slightly smaller basketball player on the children’s show Teletubbies. There he is, practicing with his dad Phil, former coach of the San Francisco Dons and current coach of Riverside City College. Jordan’s shooting percentage wasn’t as great back…
It’s honestly surprising that this doesn’t happen more often with remote interviews from subjects’ houses.
If you’d like to see what the sentence “Oh my god, this is the coolest thing that has ever happened to me!” looks like when played out in real life, this Russian kid’s reaction to seeing José Mourinho in the tunnel before yesterday’s Rostov-Manchester United match will do the trick:
Who could blame the kid with a matchup like Oregon Tech vs. Saint Francis in front of him!
One of my midlevel life regrets is that I’ve never gotten to Florida or Arizona for Spring Training, because it seems like it offers the things I like most about live baseball: Sitting outside in nice weather, eating and drinking, and just absorbing the entire sensory experience—the smells, the sounds—without…
There’s nothing like hands-on coaching.
They say that discretion is the better part of valor, and boy did this little wrestling boy have a whole lot of discretion. All his helpless opponent can do is shrug towards the crowd.
An errant basketball took a desperate break in the name of freedom this evening and tried to escape a game between Boise State and Fresno State. Referees tried to dislodge it; didn’t work. Players tried to retrieve it; no dice.
The world is a toilet fire, so you are going to watch this uplifting video, do you hear me? You are going to watch every last second, so help me god, and you and I are going to feel good about something for once, even if it fucking kills us.
One day, when I was in fourth or fifth grade, I was waiting for the school bus. Few activities suck more than waiting for a bus in the middle of winter in Minnesota, especially when that bus is just going to take you to dumb school, so I was, obviously, in a foul mood. Eventually a school bus rounded the corner—but it…
The crowd at Saturday’s Ducks-Red Wings game was captivated by a small child who appeared on the Jumbotron. The cameras cut to the kid more than once, each time to cheers. Everyone else, even other Red Wings fans, received a less positive reaction.
Oh man, this is so freaking cute I almost feel like puking.
The Wizards are playing like a big pile of dog poop this season, and they delivered their most nauseating performance of the year tonight against the Sixers. Philadelphia didn’t even have their talismanic center Joel Embiid, but they shot 54.5 percent against the Wizards tonight and beat them for just their second win…
