No one gets to the top without effort, dedication, and focus. That’s why 49ers WR Torrey Smith’s son T.J. rises and grinds every day. The competition’s just waiting for him to slip. Stay motivated; stay humble.
Some of the most endearing images from the Euros were snapped after Wales beat Belgium in the quarterfinals, when some of the ecstatic Welshmen celebrated the feat alongside their adorable children. Naturally, the haters at UEFA didn’t like these photos of pure joy and don’t want the scenes to be replicated.
Aside from a 20-pointer in Game 5, J.R. Smith hasn’t really shown up in these NBA Finals. That’s okay! His daughter is proud of him anyway. Why’s that? Because he made it this far into the season without getting kicked off the team.
The Deadspin Awards are in July and we need our readers to decide the winners of these prestigious honors. Today, we ask you to answer a vexing question:Of all these good sports babies, who is the best sports baby?
You’ve probably gone through your life without ever once considering that there is a small child somewhere out there who could easily dispatch you in one-on-one combat. Well, get ready to do some considering, tough guy:
Podcast host J.J. Redick has a cute kid who, sadly, appears to have world historic trouble with unseating a tennis ball from a t-ball stand.
Santi Cazorla apparently has a future in coaching, judging from the skills he’s already imparted upon his 5-year-old son Enzo. Watch little Enzo clown on some other Arsenal tots above, and then watch it again from a different angle here:
Now that he’s starting to feel like himself again, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard can’t seem to turn the ruthlessness off. Here is he owning his young son, Leo, after Chelsea’s season ending 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
Riley Curry’s dad won his second consecutive MVP award this afternoon. Good for him! He won it unanimously, but that didn’t stop Riley here from warning voters that if they don’t vote for him next year, there’ll be trouble.
Winger Patrick Sharp scored on the power play—the Stars’ first in 13 chances—and set up Cody Eakin’s overtime winner to tie the second-round series with the Blues at two games apiece. But more importantly than all that, the Stars are headed back to Dallas for Game 5. And Patrick’s headed back to see Sadie:
One of the best things about the NBA playoffs—curmudgeonly reporters be damned—is that players start bringing their kids to press conferences. After Isaiah Thomas scored 28 points to lead the Celtics to a Game 4 victory the Hawks, he introduced sons James and Jaiden to the world. They immediately made the most of it,…
Sports babies like Riley Curry, Derrick Rose Jr., and T.J. Smith have been resting on their laurels lately, and haven’t done anything impossibly cute. That’s why my current favorite sports baby is Naya Fowler, the two-year-old child of Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler and his wife Darya.
Derrick Rose’s son is one of the world’s more expressive sports babies, as evidenced here and in the photo above. This is apparently is not lost on Derrick Rose, who wore a very cool T-shirt in the locker room yesterday:
Jonny Gomes is a good daddy, and he celebrated tonight’s victory over the Astros by swinging one of his daughters around the pitcher’s mound. It looks like fun! Unfortunately, he didn’t see Jason Vargas’s kid running towards them and, uh, you’ll totally believe what happens next:
Metta World Peace is back in the NBA after a few seasons in China and has found an NBA more focused on the three-pointer and passing than the one he left. So, naturally, he has assumed the least surprising position available to him, that the NBA is, “No longer a man’s game. It’s a baby’s game. There’s softies…
There’s an argument to be made that the more people learn about the inherent dangers of football, the less parents will be inclined to let their children participate in the game, thus leading to the eventual death of youth football. Thankfully, the Milford Mighty Mites have developed a plan to save the sport.
One of the most hardest hitting babies in the league was spotted at TCF Bank Stadium today. I mean, if you can afford to take the whole family to an NFL game, you can probably afford to get the kid a new shirsey to go with the Bosworth ‘do.
This sports baby really is impossibly cute:
Children are dumb and uncoordinated, and also fun to laugh at when they are being dumb and uncoordinated. If you think I’m mean for saying that, it’s probably because you are an idiot or a baby (no offense). Anyway, look at this dummy:
