Look, baseball is hard. You have to catch and throw a little tiny white ball past someone who wants to murder it with a stick that was expressly made to murder the ball. If your opponent clobbers it, you have to scramble around and shit. This isn’t to excuse the incredible meltdown Oakland suffered on this play, just…
Jordan “The Terror” Tai improved his career professional record to 8-1 with a first-round knockout of “Smokin’” Joe Blackbourn Saturday in South Auckland, but made a fool of himself after the super middleweight’s attempt at celebrating an early knockdown resulted in the boxer taking an L against the ropes.
Pachuca took a 1-0 lead on León in Liga MX action tonight thanks to a catastrophic act of attempted defending that resulted in either a very unlucky, or very crooked, autogol.
You ready for some grim baseball, my friends? Then let me tell you about Steve Delabar, the Reds reliever who walked four straight batters with the bases loaded last night.
I mean, Mao Biao of Tianjin Teda does basically save his own “shot” (if you can call him falling over himself and onto the ball a “shot”) from crossing the goal line here. Laughter really is about the only sensible response.
About midway through what was probably going to be a long and elaborate goal celebration in honor of the blast Squires Gate’s (no, not a turn-of-the-century action/adventure RPG; a club in England’s ninth division) No. 8 just uncorked from the center circle, the ecstatic players in red turn horrified when the ref…
The Miami Marlins are just cooling off after an unholy hot streak where they won 11 of 12 and hit some bombastic dongers. They kicked off their three-game series against the Brewers with a second-inning dinger from J.T. Realmuto, who sent one to the garish monstrosity in center field to give the Marlins a 2-0 lead.
Roberto Castro lost this weekend’s PGA tour event at Quail Hollow in a playoff after landing a shot on 18 off a spectator’s face and into another spectator’s empty shoe:
The Philadelphia Sixers invite you to enjoy the “scrap, hustle, drives, step-backs, and spirit” that define T.J. McConnell, a rookie point guard who averaged six points and 4.5 assists in 19 minutes per game this season, and starred in the grimmest of all 76er anecdotes.
Here’s an unintentionally hilarious tweet that the official Twitter account of NBA referees just sent regarding the cascade of snafus that marred the end of last night’s Thunder-Spurs game:
A pace motorcycle stalled moments into 30k Red Hook Crit bike race, forcing dozens of cyclists into a gnarly pileup just as they were reaching sprint speed on their fixed-gear bikes. A few managed to dodge the motorcycle until they didn’t, and mayhem ensued.
A.J. Pierzynski definitely moved his body in a way that was indicative of effort after Jhoulys Chacin’s pitch went by him. But none of it worked.
Adam Silver says watching DeAndre Jordan shoot free throws isn’t “entertaining.” He’s usually right, but when he’s airballing back-to-back charity stripe attempts, it carries its own special charm.
The Tigers are comfortably ahead of the Oakland A’s this evening in Detroit thanks to Miguel Cabrera knocking in a pair of dingers off Kendall Graveman. In the sixth inning, Tigers center fielder Tyler Collins missed an easy fly ball by a few feet after he lost it in the lights, and Tigers fans were none too happy…
In their overtime loss to the Celtics last night, just about every member of the Atlanta Hawks besides Paul Millsap played like dogshit. One of the chief offenders was point guard Jeff Teague, who shot a dismal 4-18, and had just five assists to three turnovers. He missed almost every shot as the game seesawed, and…
Sometimes, your team really bones it and gives up a walk-off home run. Or maybe they lose after a new MLB rule bites them in the ass. Both of those scenarios suck, but neither is outright embarrassing. The Blue Jays’ 4-3 loss to the Orioles in extras tonight, however, ended in sad, humiliating fashion:
The Hawks just took a 2-0 lead in their first round series with the Boston Celtics after a prehistoric, listless game. Avery Bradley didn’t play because of a hamstring injury, Kelly Olynynk missed the game with a shoulder problem, and the Hawks’ coolest player, Dennis Schröder, turned his ankle at the end of the game.
