Matt Szczur reached base for the Cubs today when, in the top of the seventh inning, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was unable to corral a third strike in the dirt. The reason Molina couldn’t find the ball to put Szczur out at first? It was stuck to his belly.
Eastern Michigan smoked Charlotte tonight, but the highlight of the game was a strangely-competent EMU team kicking off from the 49ers’ 20-yard line after a series of personal fouls drawn during and after the Eagles pulled off a pick-six. We never thought we’d see this once, but then we saw it again. (We still think…
The Oklahoma City Thunder grabbed two technical foul free throws with 1.2 seconds left in the half at Sacramento tonight when Rajon Rondo found himself incapable of handling the ball for an inbounds play—twice.
Iowa State took care of things at home tonight against Oklahoma State with a 58-50 win, but that scoreline doesn’t include a Jameel McKay dunk that officials ruled a miss after the ball went through the hoop, bounced off Cowboys defender Anthony Allen’s skull and back out through the top. Maybe getting dunked on isn’t…
Kentucky won today’s SEC basketball battle in Tuscaloosa today 77-61, but it was the Crimson Tide that contributed to the college basketball corpus of literature as forward Jimmie Taylor introduced a new way of boxing out defenders to secure the offensive rebound. Despite this innovation, Taylor was whistled for a…
Northwestern is sporting its best men’s basketball team in years—maybe ever, given that the Wildcats have never, ever made the NCAA tournament—and Maryland’s fourth-ranked Terrapins are in Evanston tonight looking to darken those bright Chicago skies (heh, heh).
We love these incredible basketball plays, so here’s Michigan State’s Alvin Ellis scoring on his own basket while trying to deflect an Iowa inbound pass. It’s emblematic of the Spartans’ rough night in Iowa City; they fell to the Hawkeyes 83-70.
What you see here is Fresno State’s Jamire Jordan scoring a touchdown to narrow San Jose State’s lead over the Bulldogs. But exactly what play this is, or what it is supposed to look like, we’re completely lost. Is it supposed to be a pass play? Did guys forget to block? Is it a completely broken and improvised mess?
The Arizona Wildcats completed a true team play in Pac-12 action at UCLA last night when shortstop Kevin Newman failed to pull down a pop fly, instead allowing it to bounce off his head and—amazingly—into left fielder Jared Oliva’s glove.
Jon Lester may have trouble throwing over to first, but maybe he’d have better luck if he just chucked his entire glove instead of just the ball. That’s what happened to the Cubs ace today in the second inning when he couldn’t make the transfer from glove-to-hand and thus decided to just throw the whole thing in one…
Arkansas State gave up 34 points in the first 21 minutes of their game tonight against Louisiana-Lafayette, but they gained seven of those back when running back Michael Gordon took a hit, went down, and decided to keep running—70 yards for a touchdown.
Last week's high school football battle between DeSoto County and Bayshore High in Bradenton, Fla., featured a kickoff taken from the receiving team's own 15-yard line. If that sounds ridiculous, just watch the video, which comes to us courtesy WWSB in Sarasota.
