Today’s Bayern Munich-Borussia Mönchengladbach broadcast on FS2 had a bonus soundtrack: “HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!?”
Does this Clayton Kershaw pitch from today’s game even count as an eephus? It seems more like the Dodgers pitcher forgot that Tyler Flowers was already at the plate, or maybe Kershaw didn’t set himself properly on the mound and had to follow through so he didn’t hurt anything. Whatever the reason, the pitch was odd.
While we all loved that video of the marble race (go ahead and treat yourself to another viewing while you’re here), I’m not sure it deserved a shoutout in an ABC news update during the Mike & Mike radio show this morning. Still, that’s exactly what happened. The strange segment got even stranger when the guy reading…
You may know Zinedine Zidane as the manager of Real Madrid. If you don’t know him from that, you definitely remember him as the guy who flipped out in the 2006 World Cup final and headbutted an opponent. Though apparently Zidane himself has forgotten about that, judging from some recent quotes.
I’m not sure why a few NFL owners have suddenly felt the urge to speak publicly about football’s relationship to CTE, but somebody in the league office should probably tell them to stop.
Mike Francesa has given us many memorable on-air moments, but I’m not sure if he’s ever had an interaction as teeth-achingly awkward as the one he had with Eddie in Queens yesterday:
The Dodo, the internet’s best source for fucked-up animal news, has once again derailed my evening. I’ve lost the ability to do anything but stare at photos of this absurdly busted dog and laugh until I cry.
Sometimes, we see things on TV that are so weird we’re too afraid to sort out the context. Here, from today’s Davidson-Fordham game, is one of those things.
If there’s one thing you can always rely on high school sports to provide, it’s hilarious box scores. Today’s gift comes to us from a girls basketball game in Cleveland, Ohio, between Gilmour High and Northeast Ohio College Prep.
Just what the hell is this?
The Clippers played in Boston last night, possibly marking former Celtics great Paul Pierce’s last chance to play in front of his old fans. Pierce received a warm welcome from the crowed when he was introduced, and then participated in a very strange skit with his teammates.
Here is a tweet that Knicks president Phil Jackson just sent, one day after firing head coach Derek Fisher:
Buper Spowl Dedia May is off to a stantastic fart.
The best sports highlight of today, by a large margin, is this man using his dick to hit a ping-pong ball.
Meet Salomon Ponte, the winner of a WPTDeepStacks no-limit hold ’em tournament. After taking first place, he sat down for a post-tourney interview and took the opportunity to relentlessly advertise himself. Everyone has to make a living, but Ponte was seemingly incapable of stopping the hustle.
Syracuse beat Duke tonight in Durham, giving the Blue Devils its first three-game losing streak against unranked teams since the 1960s. As soon as the final buzzer sounded, these young men went running. Who are they? Why are they in such a hurry? We have so many questions.
Super Bowl 51 will be in Houston on Feb. 5, 2017, and today, the city’s Super Bowl committee unveiled its mascot. His name is TD, and he’s a football dressed up in a football uniform. He also has a smile, I think. It could be a misplaced lace.
