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 Monday 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 Saturday 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.

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

Confused Giants Fans Scramble For Invisible Foul Ball

The main thing that an adult needs to remember when attending a baseball game is this: it is of the utmost importance to play it cool if and when a foul ball happens to land nearby. Do not fight with another fan while trying to pull the ball out of a trash can, do not snatch the ball from a child, and do not… » 9/11/14 11:19am 9/11/14 11:19am

Yet Another Challenger Emerges For Worst First Pitch Ever

So, here's the question: how much worse can these first pitches get? At some point someone is going to do something you never dreamed possible of a ceremonial first pitch, like strike oil, or completely forget to release the ball and fling themselves toward home plate. Either that, or they're just going to have to… » 8/27/14 12:44am 8/27/14 12:44am
