With a little less than a minute left in last night’s Game 5 between Washington and Atlanta, John Wall dribbled into some open space behind a Marcin Gortat screen and calmly sank a 21-foot jumpshot, giving the Wizards a four-point lead with 47 seconds left to play.
The Boston Celtics regained control of their first-round series against the Bulls last night, winning 108-97 and taking a 3-2 series lead. Who is to blame for the Bulls losing their grip? Not Dwyane Wade, who scored 26 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, dished eight assists, and played some inspired defense in the loss.
A fan taking in a Southern Arkansas Muleriders softball game this afternoon used up all of his coordination to make an incredible snag, stretching to catch a homer from the bed of a pickup truck. Overenthused and underprepared, he promptly toppled headfirst out of said pickup truck.
Remember when Chris Wondolowski was presented with a golden chance to put the USMNT through against Belgium at the 2014 World Cup and proceeded to completely screw it up? This is worse.
Chicago Cubs leadoff hitter Kyle Schwarber stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the first inning, with the Cubs trailing the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0, and laid down a perfect bunt to third. Seriously, no bunt has ever been so finely placed.
Red Sox starting pitcher Steven Wright did not have a good night whatsoever. The knuckleballer’s start lasted just 34 pitches, during which he gave up eight runs and four dingers in the first 1.1 innings. In the first inning alone, Wright gave up six runs and two homers.
Wrestlers are artists who perform dangerous, violent stunts nearly every night, and it is extremely important that these stunts be done with care. If a match features one participant who is not equipped to properly pull off the stunts with his or her opponent, disaster can strike. That’s nearly what happened during…
The struggling San Francisco Giants beat the suddenly competent Arizona Diamondbacks by three runs this afternoon. The D-Backs have no one to blame for the loss but themselves, as they handed those three runs to the Giants in the fourth inning when they capitulated en masse and forgot how to field a bunt. San…
You know what, rather than ridicule, Aberdeen striker Miles Storey deserves our sympathy. Yes, it’s never good to find a way not to score when you’re literally a foot away from an unguarded net, but the incoming cross was deflected, and it had to feel like shit to hear that sound the crowd made when he missed.
During the fourth inning of yesterday’s game between the Cubs and Cardinals, St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright let loose a truly horrendous pitch. With two men on and one out, Wainwright spiked an 0-2 pitch into the ground, about 25 feet in front of the mound.
FC Dallas trailed Liga MX club Pachuca 2-1 in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinal on Tuesday night, but with the score tied 3-3 on aggregate and 1-1 on away goals in its final minute, it looked destined for extra time.
Early in the second half of Stoke City’s match against Burnley, the Potters’ Charlie Adam stepped up to take a corner and ... it did not go well.
This year’s edition of Dumb Shining Moment features everybody’s favorite athletes; the men we paid money (to CBS sponsors) to see; the men who really ought to go pro in something other than sports.
Argentine club Belgrano’s keeper probably should’ve been terrified with four River Plate players bearing down on him with no help in sight, but instead he went all “NAH FUCK THAT” and stood up brave and tall and psyched out the attackers, somehow saving a goal and earning the glory.
Sweden is having an easy time of it against Belarus—the Swedes are up 4-0, at the moment—but Belarusian keeper Andrey Gorbunov isn’t helping things. Here’s Emil Forsberg knocking one in for Sweden’s second goal of the match—also completing a brace for the Leipzig man—right through Gorbunov’s wicket.
Macedonian strongman Pero Antić, last seen in the NBA cracking skulls for the Hawks, is back in the Euroleague, where he first made his name as a bruiser. He’s currently playing for Turkish club Fenerbahçe alongside fellow NBA vets Jan Vesely and Ekpe Udoh. Antić is still muscling people out of his way, but this…
In the World Baseball Classic semifinal between Puerto Rico and the Netherlands, Dutchman Jurickson Profar got ahead of himself while celebrating a first-inning single to right field. Puerto Rico’s right fielder threw a rocket to catcher Yadier Molina to hold up the runner at third, and then, as Profar was…
The 2016-17 Coyotes season highlight DVD will just be this on loop for an hour.
Folks, we got some twin-on-twin on violence against one of the twin’s twins. Markieff Morris got stonewalled by Mason Plumlee late in the fourth quarter and his leg popped up in what Draymond Green would call a “natural foot motion,” catching Plumlee right in the dick and balls. The look of anguish on Plumlee’s face…
