Mets outfielder Alejandro de Aza did nearly everything wrong tonight in the tenth inning of New York’s scoreless tie against the Braves: he botched the bunt, didn’t run it out, and then slid into first base—headfirst, even. Good job, good effort!
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.
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.
That’s Super Victor, the mascot of Euro 2016! Hi, buddy! He’s cute, huh? Kinda like Ness from Super Smash Bros. What a nice mascot, let’s Google him to find out more information!
One day after playing the Chilean national anthem instead of Uruguay’s, the Copa América screwed things up again by interrupting Chile’s anthem before the team’s match against Argentina in Santa Clara.
The Copa América Centenario has been a disaster thus far, with sparse crowds and uninteresting play marking the opening days of the scandal-soaked tournament. Things got even uglier tonight, as Glendale’s stadium played the wrong anthem for Uruguay before their match against Mexico.
Transitioning from a bunch of Champions League games and a cup final to a relatively placid friendly against Malta can be a shock to the system. Rarely, however, does it result in such a hilarious, dumb own goal, like the one Bayern Munich star David Alaba scored on his own team this afternoon.
Steven Kruijswijk took a three minute lead into the the final weekend of the Giro d’Italia—the second-biggest stage race in the world after the Tour de France—which looked like a fairly safe lead over Colombian sparkplug Esteban Chaves and mopey Sicilian Vincenzo Nibali (another minute and a half behind Chaves). Both…
British pop singer Karen Harding had one job before today’s FA Cup Final at Wembley: to sing “God Save The Queen.” It didn’t work out so well for her—having missed her cue, she stood silently for most of the anthem before finally chiming in for the final few words. At least those are the most important, right?
The Vertical’s Shams Charania has a scoop that does not make the Milwaukee Bucks look very good. According to Charania, someone in the organization recently fell for a phishing scam, and sent players’ private financial data to a scammer.
The NBA draft lottery is tonight at 8 p.m., but Dikembe Mutombo’s Twitter account couldn’t wait until then to congratulate the Philadelphia 76ers for winning the first overall pick. The tweet, which had a photo of Mutombo and Allen Iverson, was quickly deleted.

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…
