Soccer Team Gets Scored On While Busy Celebrating Their Goal

If you've ever wondered why soccer players celebrate goals in the opponent's half of the field, well it's mostly because all of them except the goalkeeper are already there. But it's also because the other team cannot kickoff while there are opposing players in their half. This is something the all the players on… » 3/25/15 10:20pm Wednesday 10:20pm

Here's Steven Gerrard's Final Liverpool-Man United Match In Its Entirety

Steven Gerrard made sure his final match in the Liverpool-Manchester United rivalry was a memorable one, but not in the way he'd have hoped. After coming on as a sub at halftime, he received the ball six times, played five passes, made one crunching tackle that could've gotten him a yellow, and ultimately was justly… » 3/22/15 12:12pm Sunday 12:12pm

Max Pacioretty Makes A Nice Pass For An Assist ... To The Wrong Team

This is not Canadien forward Max Pacioretty's finest moment, as he clearly thought the man behind him was a teammate, not Lightning forward Steven Stamkos. Stamkos still had to get off a nice snipe to beat Carey Price, but the man is third in the NHL in goals. He doesn't need any extra help. » 3/17/15 12:23am 3/17/15 12:23am

James Harden Thrown To Floor By Matt Barnes

James Harden got a step on Clippers D-and-3 guy (where "D" can be understood to stand for "dipshit goon with a sneer and six fouls to give") Matt Barnes in the second quarter; Barnes responded by unleashing his inner Wilber Marshall for some damn reason. For his efforts, he was awarded a flagrant-1 foul and some… » 3/15/15 4:35pm 3/15/15 4:35pm

Ángel Di María Gets Ice Grill, Then Red Card For Grabbing Ref

About a minute before the GIF you see above, referee Michael Oliver gave Manchester United's Ángel Di María a yellow card for an obvious dive. Frustrated and angry, Di María decided to snatch at the back of the ref's shirt, demanding an explanation. That's when Oliver pierces Di María's soul with that icy glare before… » 3/09/15 5:37pm 3/09/15 5:37pm

Gonzalo Higuaín Forgets He's Really Good, Bungles Really Easy Goal

In a season where Phillip Hofmann committed this crime against finishing, it would take a special bit of incompetence to snatch away the award of Miss Of The Season. This is not that. It is, however, a really bad effort from a really good player, making it particularly embarrassing in its own right. » 3/08/15 5:25pm 3/08/15 5:25pm

This Is The Worst Shot I've Ever Seen

The above GIF features one of the 400 or so best basketball players in a world earnestly attempting to make a shot—I think—in a real live basketball game that counted in the standings and everything. It went about 20 feet too high, 20 feet too deep, and 20 feet too wide, but at least Alexey Shved is out here trying! » 2/28/15 1:14pm 2/28/15 1:14pm

Middle School Basketball Team Loses In Heartbreaking Fashion

These eighth-graders learned a very important lesson yesterday: life isn't remotely fair. If you lose a game because of missing a game-winning shot, okay, but losing because the ball gets stuck on the rim, triggering a jump ball with 0.0 seconds left? That's just cruel. The kid lying on the floor knows what's up. » 2/17/15 11:03pm 2/17/15 11:03pm

Soccer Player Kicks Ball Directly Into His Own Face, Wins Foul

AC Milan played Empoli to a draw in Serie A today, during which a very hilarious thing transpired that I will now relay to you. Empoli defender Mario Rui was under a little pressure, and tried to escape by popping a bouncing ball over his head. If it worked, I assure you it would've been super cool. » 2/15/15 6:38pm 2/15/15 6:38pm

So, The Wizards Aren't Handling This Slump All That Well

Shit's rough for the Wizards these days, man. After a few months of hanging steady near the top of the East and raking in national praise for their fun young backcourt duo of John Wall and Bradley Beal, they've dumped five in a row, seven of nine, and have been overtaken by the refurbished and newly wakeful Cavs. … » 2/06/15 3:49pm 2/06/15 3:49pm
