Netherlands Player Busts Her Ass While Whiffing On Shot

We should be talking about this great run and the exquisite pass and maybe one of the best team moves in the tournament so far, but right before Dutch winger Manon Melis could crown the moment with a goal, she screwed it all up. More than whatever turf-burn she got from the fall, her bruised ego has to hurt the most. » 6/23/15 10:26pm 6/23/15 10:26pm

Wambach Blows PK After Colombian Keeper Sent Off; U.S. Score Anyway

Abby Wambach botched a penalty kick awarded after Colombian keeper Catalina Pérez earned a red card for bringing Alex Morgan down on the inside edge of the box, and a lackluster performance by the U.S. seemed to have its lacklustiest moment until a lucky break when Morgan snuck one past replacement keeper Stefany… » 6/22/15 9:18pm 6/22/15 9:18pm

Warriors Beat Rockets As James Harden Can't Get Final Shot Off

James Harden was brilliant all game, putting up a ridiculous 38/10/9 line without a ton of help from his non-Dwight Howard teammates. But on the final play of the game, down 99-98 with seven seconds to attack a scrambling Warriors defense, Harden inexplicably passed the ball to Howard, and when he got it back he… » 5/21/15 11:44pm 5/21/15 11:44pm
