Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears, they had to play each other today.
All the Los Angeles Rams’ special teams unit had to do was catch a punt. That’s it. Just wave for the fair catch so Jeff Fisher’s offense can figure out a new way to go three-and-out. Instead, Pharoh Cooper had to deal with his own teammate laying a hit on him.
Dwight Howard had a decent game in a loss to the Suns last night, finishing with 17 points and 14 rebounds in 33 minutes. He also finished with one assist, but as you can see int he clip below, he was very close to finishing with two:
Jason Terry is a nice guy and a great shooter. Who isn’t amused by his insane sock habits and propensity for bold tattoos? I’d love to chat with him. But the worst possible time for that chat would be right in the middle of a professional basketball game in which I was responsible for playing defense. J.R. Smith chose…
Somewhere in this chaotic scramble to end the Brown-Bryant game tonight, Bryant freshman Ikenna Ndugba lost his handle on the score of the game. With 12 seconds left, Nisre Zouzoua nailed a fadeaway three to give Bryant a one-point lead. Brown drove down the floor with urgency and Tavon Blackmon slipped in for a…
Ottawa is stomping Calgary in tonight’s Canadian Super Bowl, which is one of the most entertaining football events of the year but which gets next to no promotion or notice by ESPN, the CFL’s U.S. broadcast partner. That’s a shame, because more people could be watching great things like this. Or—depending on your…
Arsenal took an early 1-0 lead on Bournemouth thanks to Steve Cook’s massive boner that Ian Darke called “X-rated”:

We’ve brought you a whole bunch of terrible misses over the years, and while all of them were affronts to the notion of soccer as an elegant, highly skilled sport, they were also, when looked at with an exceedingly sympathetic eye, at least sort of understandable. The above miss, in some Serbian lower league, is…
We’re taught to give it our all in tasks, regardless of the outcome, because even if the effort doesn’t produce the desired result, at least you tried your best. This line of thinking does not apply to Green Bay Packers linebacker Kyler Fackrell.
The Chiefs grabbed a first-quarter turnover as Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston lost his faculties—and the football.
Meet the UMass Boston Beacons, who should more accurately be known as the UMass Boston Bad Soccer Men after their violent displays during this Division III tournament game against Haverford College.
The Warriors beat the Suns 133-120 tonight, but the game wasn’t entirely the display of offensive efficiency suggested by that final score. Here’s a sequence of abject futility and a metaphor for the human condition in 2016—saved, as we are always, by Stephen Curry.
Mackie McDonald was up 4-3 in the first set against Peter Polansky during today’s ATP Challenger event in Knoxville, before taking an injury timeout. When he returned, he could no longer slam a strong and righteous overhead serve. So he settled for these little underhand slices.
The Bruins were murder on goalies last night, chasing Sergei Bobrovsky with four goals on nine shots in their eventual 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets. They got to Tuukka Rask too, even though he plays for them. Defenseman Colin Miller mishandled the puck and put it right between Rask’s legs for an own goal.
We’ve been blessed with a few sequences of perfect basketball already this season, and last night the Knicks and Nets served up a hot slice of authentic “Big Apple” hoops. This encapsulates everything you need to know about the state of basketball in this city, whose crown prince is Brandon Jennings:
With three seconds left in the first half of the Seahawks-Bills game, chaos took over.
Texas running back D’Onta Foreman was a profile in courage as he dragged half a dozen Texas Tech defenders to the goal line. Then, tragically, he fumbled—and the Red Raiders’ Douglas Coleman picked up the ball for a 100-yard fumble return touchdown, turning the Longhorns’ go-ahead score into a TTU lead-increaser.
