Half-Court Shot Bounces Off Top Of Backboard, Goes In

This kid from Gonzaga won $500 for doing something nobody on Earth could do again on purpose. Seems like it should be worth more than that? » 11/18/14 12:32am 11/18/14 12:32am

This Dude's Soccer Trick Shots Will Blow Your Mind

Trick shot artist Rémi Gaillard has a new World Cup-themed video out, and oh man is this dude good at soccer trick shots. I would wager that he is better at this than any of us will ever be at anything. » 6/06/14 12:11pm 6/06/14 12:11pm

The 10 Most Ridiculous Shots In The NBA In 2013

The most deceptive thing about watching the NBA is the way, from time to time, it makes everyone seem totally incompetent. We know that all these guys can make shot after shot when they're all alone, but there's enough cognitive dissonance to convince ourselves that, say, despite the threat of a 6'9 small forward… » 12/26/13 9:43am 12/26/13 9:43am

Long Snapper Trick-Shot Video Knows Your Opinion Of Long Snapping

You know those videos that come into your life under a headline like, "I Can't Stop Watching This Whatever Do Something"? This video of Lawrence University long snapper John Doran is not that. I can stop watching his trick shot video. It's not terribly difficult to pull myself away from it at all. It's a compilation… » 11/25/13 8:24pm 11/25/13 8:24pm

This Behind-The-Back Table Tennis Shot Confused The Heck Out Of Its…

This happened over the weekend at the ITTF Kuwait Open (that explains the announcer), but we're just getting it to you now because we assumed you hadn't yet received your Kuwait Open highlights DVD. Sue us. » 2/20/13 1:05pm 2/20/13 1:05pm

Things we did not know: Campbell University, in North Carolina, has a PGA-accredited golf management program.

Look At This Pathetic Baby's Terrible Shooting Form

This video has been making its way around the internet today, and everybody who watches it is like, "Awwww look at that precious little baby throwing balls into his little baby-sized basketball hoop. What a cute, talented baby that is!" Even those saps at Gawker got in on the act. » 2/05/13 5:45pm 2/05/13 5:45pm

Bob Bryan Pulled Off A Perfect Between-The-Legs Shot During A Second…

Some trickery! Not only did Bob Bryan nonchalantly whip out the between-the-legs move that's apparently in his arsenal, he did so down a set, during a tiebreak, and hammered a winner to follow it up. The Bryan twins went on to win the tiebreak, and controlled the third set 6-3 to give them the match against Scott… » 9/03/12 3:30pm 9/03/12 3:30pm

The Unstoppable Frisbee Trick Shot Menace Has Finally Reached Quebec

Look, it's not the "greatest Frisbee catch in the history of Frisbee catches," but it is Frisbee trick shot expert Brodie Smith and some random people in Nordiques jerseys—OK, and one Maple Leafs fan—defy the laws of physics throughout the Colisée Pepsi, so there's that. » 4/12/12 10:15pm 4/12/12 10:15pm

Trick Shot Enthusiasts Cut Down Tree To Use As A Slingshot, Make The…

I'm not really sure how you verify such a thing, but the dudes from Dude Perfect are claiming this is the world's largest slingshot. Once constructed, they successfully made a basket. After launching a few other items, a panda plants what appears to be a branch to replace the tree they cut down. It is the circle of… » 3/03/12 5:00pm 3/03/12 5:00pm

Don Mattingly Beans a Bear And Other Trick Shots

This is one of those trick shot videos that are all the rage these days. It seems that Mattingly, son Preston (and future Yankees MVP) and some other local Evansville, Indiana super stars have their own now called Trickwinkle? I don't know. A bear is involved. » 1/28/12 10:45am 1/28/12 10:45am

Gael Monfils Took The Tennis Trick Shot To A New Level Today

Monfils and Juan Carlos Ferrero are currently deadlocked in the second round at the U.S. Open. Ferrero took the first set, 7-6 (5), Monfils took the second at 7-5, and Ferrero is up 6-5 in the third. Monfils, though, got the psychological (and bullshit) advantage with this trick shot early on. » 9/01/11 4:00pm 9/01/11 4:00pm

Please Take Your Trick Shot Video And Shove It Up Your Cockhole

Seriously. Unless there's someone who is brave enough to drop a baby off a high-dive through a basketball rim, Deadspin is longer interested in trick shot videos. » 3/02/11 8:45pm 3/02/11 8:45pm

QB Trick Shot Videos Are The New Hotness

This one comes from Monmouth College (Ill.) quarterback Alex Tanney. He's got some moves just as impressive as Johnny McEntee, but his reel doesn't have the same production values. Can substance overcome style? » 2/21/11 11:00am 2/21/11 11:00am

UConn QB Takes On Doors, Baskets, Pizza Delivery Vans In Trick Shot…

Finally, the trick shot video diversifies into the world of football. UConn backup Johnny McEntee does some incredible things with a ball, and, presumably, a patient cameraman. Man, if this guy's just the backup, I don't know what Robert Burton's so mad about. » 2/09/11 10:00am 2/09/11 10:00am
