This Shameful Display Of Mass Injury-Faking Is The Pinnacle Of Diving

Here it is, soccer haters. If any of you needed that one crucial piece of evidence that the sport's players were a bunch of diving, playacting wimps, this video showing five Defensor Bolívar players faking injuries, forcing the ref to end the match eight minutes early, should be just what you've waited for. » 10/20/14 11:57am Monday 11:57am

Sunderland Defender's Exquisite Volley Makes For Wonderful Own Goal

Below, Sunderland's Santiago Vergini shows off some impressive technical ability as he takes a bouncing ball and cracks it past the keeper. It would've been worthy of his personal highlight reel, if it hadn't been aimed at his own net. But for an own goal, this was a beaut. » 10/18/14 11:19am Saturday 11:19am

Diego Costa's Targeting System Is On The Fritz

Diego Costa's scored nine goals so far this year for Chelsea, but has yet to find the net for his adoptive country of Spain. He had the perfect opportunity to do it against Luxembourg at today's Euro 2016 qualifier, but somehow put the ball, uh, really wide of the target. Blame it on server lag. » 10/12/14 3:40pm 10/12/14 3:40pm

Can A Ref With No Red Card Send Someone Off? One Player Investigates

It's an interesting question, one that Guingamp's Benjamin Angoua tried valiantly to answer this weekend when, as the ref tried to show a red to a teammate, Angoua nipped and slapped at the card, hoping the ref would either listen to reason or get tired of trying to snatch the damn thing out of the air. » 9/29/14 12:36pm 9/29/14 12:36pm

UMass Video Board Falls Over During Third Quarter

UMass took on Bowling Green in its first game on-campus in three years today, and it would appear they haven't worked out all the kinks yet. Early in the third quarter, the video board fell over. Unfortunately, there's no video of the actual fall, but we can see the board hanging limp in the aftermath. The oohs and… » 9/27/14 5:50pm 9/27/14 5:50pm

Alleged Striker Fails To Score Easiest Goal Ever

Philipp Hofmann of Kaiserslautern could've done anything else with the ball here and scored. He could've barely tapped it in almost any direction and it would've gone in. He could've tripped over in his wind-up and his face would've bungled it in. His only job was not to do exactly what he did. » 9/25/14 12:23pm 9/25/14 12:23pm

Mike Moustakas Catches Woman's Face Instead Of Foul Ball

One of the best things about baseball is that fans sit precisely zero feet away from the field. It's not great because fans get to watch the action from up close (though that's pretty cool too), but because fans get to be part of the action. That's what happened to this poor Indians fan in Wednesday night's win over… » 9/24/14 11:19pm 9/24/14 11:19pm

Braves Fan Catches Foul Ball With Face

See, this is why grown ass men should bring gloves to baseball games. When the foul ball comes your way—like it did to this unfortunate Braves fan at Turner Field—you are going to try and catch it. And if you are going to try and catch it, shouldn't you have the proper tool to do so? If not, you're left trying to… » 9/18/14 12:04am 9/18/14 12:04am
