Aris defeated Kifisia 108-103 in overtime today in the Greek League playoffs, all thanks to former Arizona State star Jermaine Marshall’s incredible boner at the end of regulation.
Going to an empty football stadium to lay on the grass and watch a movie on the jumbotron sounds like a perfectly pleasant way to spend a spring evening. It becomes remarkably less pleasant when the stadium forgets to shut off the automatic sprinklers:
ESPN analyst Jay Williams forgot to silence his phone before going live on SportsCenter this morning, and just like when you forgot to do it before going to church today, it rang at the most inappropriate moment. Williams laughed it off, suggesting it was one of the coaches to talk strategy—but who do you think is…
There was a very hard-to-believe bit of gossip buried in a NOLA.com article this morning. Columnist Roy Higgins cited a source who told him that the University of South Carolina Gamecocks were initially invited to the NCAA tournament by the selection committee, only to have that invitation rescinded a short time…
This time last year, Blue Jays pitcher Drew Hutchison was getting ready to start on Opening Day. Yesterday, he found himself making his final start of spring training, with one last chance to secure a spot in the big-league rotation. Things were going okay for about four innings, until Hutchison had to leave the game…
ESPN’s NFL Live bit hard on a fake tweet about defensive end Olivier Vernon signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars today. Trey Wingo broke the “news” from “Fox Sports,” threw it to Adam Schefter for details (on a signing that didn’t occur), and opened it up to the panel. There’s something perfect about watching the…
Georgia high schools playing in the state basketball championships at the Macon Coliseum this weekend discovered that the court used for the games wasn’t regulation-size. The hoops were incorrectly positioned an extra foot away, but instead of fixing the error, the Georgia High School Association played the games and…
Here, via American Sports Network, comes a clip from tonight’s UTSA-Old Dominion game in which Monarchs forward Brandan Stith collects an offensive rebound and passes to wide-open teammate Jordan Baker. Baker was wide-open because, well, he wasn’t actually in the game—having been subbed out half a minute earlier.
NFL Network inadvertently aired its analysts’ off-air commentary on a quarterback prospect at the NFL combine, mocking both his singing and throwing ability while declaring him “the next former Browns quarterback.”
Chicago ABC station WLS did not start today off on the right foot, as we see in this OTS image attempting to illustrate the Laquan McDonald case.
No, seriously, Jamie Little clearly can’t see John Cena, today’s pace car driver.
Maybe you booted up WatchESPN last night to catch the Warriors beat the Clippers. Maybe you wanted to watch Golden State try to win without a center, or Chris Paul yip at people. Instead, you got this.
Red Sox center fielder Mookie Betts is an adept baseball man, as well as an extremely skilled bowler. What he’s not good at is driving a golf cart, apparently. He and Travis Shaw went golfing this afternoon, and they got a bit more amphibious than they wanted to.
Tonight’s gag three-point competition between the Warriors’ Draymond Green and actor Kevin Hart was supposed to end with Green crushing Hart, taking home a giant trophy while his non-athlete opponent went home with a participation ribbon. What nobody planned on was Hart actually
tying Green—which is exactly…
We all make mistakes. Here’s one that popped up on everyone’s favorite website espn.go.com tonight, as a basic video of Celtics-Raptors highlights inadvertently included an earlier, aborted take. Is it Friday yet? Guffaw! Mr. Go won’t be happy.
To be fair to Shaq, I can’t really compose a coherent thought after 8:00 p.m., either.
Here’s a helpful tip for any New York City government employees who have ever worked with the NFL: don’t accept those free Super Bowl tickets.
