The Seattle Mariners lost their sixth straight game this afternoon to move below .500 and cap off a long slide in which they’ve gone 8-19 and have been swept three times. Today’s loss was the dumbest. Starter Adrian Sampson injured his elbow warming up for the game but the Mariners managed to dinger their way back…
Here we have Tyrell Clary, a freshman forward who plays for Wallace State in the Alabama Community College Conference, putting on a little dunk show for some school children. Some of the children enjoyed the show more than others:
Look at this photo of Ángel Pagán doing a cool jump to rob Erik Kratz of a dinger. You think he got it? He did not.
Portugal only managed a draw against Austria today in Paris after Cristiano Ronaldo missed a late penalty kick; the Real Madrid superstar then was confronted after the game by an Idiot On The Field who demanded—and apparently got—a selfie with the three-time world player of the year:
Odubel Herrera made a routine fly ball catch to end the eighth inning and flipped the ball to a fan in the outfield stands, which was a kind thing to do, except, yeah, no, that’s not the third out.
The Colorado Rockies are known purveyors of the “Two Guys, One Base” strategy and tonight, they took it too far when Trevor Story ran into Gerardo Parra like an enthused golden retriever going for a ball. He did not get the ball, but he did take out Parra.
Panama have a chance to knock Chile out of the Copa America and join their CONCACAF friends (USA and Mexico) in the quarterfinals if they beat Chile this evening. Thanks to a terrible pass by a center back and some fumbling goalkeeping work, they got an early lead against the Chileans.
For some reason, the Tour de Suisse decided that a good place to stick a finish line was 100 meters after a 90-degree corner. When Danny van Poppel tried to squeeze past Peter Sagan on the inside corner, he clipped wheels and was on course to eat shit into the barrier until he made a miraculous save.
Zack Greinke left the Dodgers for the huge pile of cash that the Arizona Diamondbacks offered him this offseason, and he tried to show out a bit when he hit what he probably believed to be a donger against his former team. He flipped a itty bitty bat flip to commemorate the occasion. Except, yeah, no, that’s not a…
United States forward Gyasi Zardes has quickly established himself as one of Jürgen Klinsmann’s favorite attackers, racking up five goals and 26 caps in his first two years with the national team. He’s a perfectly fine runner and finisher, but good lord, his first touch looks like he’s playing soccer in authentic…
By now, you’ve surely been made aware of the fact that Justin Bieber got tossed around after last night’s NBA Finals game between the Cavaliers and Warriors. Watch the scuffle below, if you haven’t seen it yet:
Oh, so your baseball team uses defensive shifts? They sometimes put the shortstop on the other side of the infield when a lefty is at the plate? Wow. Cool. How revolutionary.
Snoop Dogg was at a Padres game for some reason this afternoon, and he threw out the first pitch, laying down the best highlight of the game in the process. His toss wasn’t as bad as 50 Cent’s notorious stray pitch from two years ago, but Snoop’s nearly took out a pair of innocent onlookers.
You might not be able tell this apart from everyday MLS action, but if you look closely, you’ll see that the field is a bit, uh, damp.
The Indians lost to the Rangers, 7-3, tonight and Francisco Lindor lost to his baseball bat, 1-0.
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.
