We’ll have plenty of analysis later, but for the moment: holy shit.
Might want to put down a tarp now, because your shit is going to fly everywhere after you watch this:
A nice reader sends us this amazing shot of Villanova forward Kris Jenkins’s game-winning buzzer-beater from the end of the NCAA championship game. We’ve all seen this shot from a dozen or so angles, but I don’t think this one has been out there yet.
There’s nothing ordinary about striking out 20 guys in a single game, and Max Scherzer doesn’t really need any help shining up the diamond he gave us last night, but this performance stands out as unusual even amongst its peers.
Kyle Lowry had been struggling all game, until the bitter end of Toronto’s opening game against Miami, when he hit this absolute moonshot to tie the game at 90 and send it to overtime. The Heat had it just about sealed up (TNT read the credits and everything) until they got too lackadaisical, got called for a travel…
Today’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Cameroon and South Africa went berserk early in the second half as Bafana Bafana midfielder Hlompho Kekana took a shot on goal from his own side of the pitch and scored, giving his team a 2-1 lead.
When Cincinnati’s Kevin Johnson hit a three-pointer with two seconds remaining in the third overtime of the Bearcats’ American quarterfinal against UConn, it looked like the Huskies were toast. But Jalen Adams drilled a shot off the inbounds pass that came with less than a second remaining to force a fourth overtime…
What is going on here???
Look, Chinese teams flexing their newfound financial muscle by snatching up a handful of the best performers from the Brazilian league every season, or even by buying some very good though out of favor European players like Gervinho and Ramires is one thing. But breaking the bank for a striker on one of the best teams…
Generally speaking, youth sports are about fun and fitness and finding a bit of self-worth in a big, strange world, and perhaps—perhaps—discovering an activity that makes you Feel Something. But generally speaking—generally speaking—the stakes ain’t that high, and they’re not supposed to be.
Did you know snapping turtles could do it like this?
Yes, that headline is accurate. Today in Australia’s Big Bash League (which, true to its moniker, is getting a lot of attention in these parts recently) Melbourne Stars bowler Adam Zampa earned a dismissal after the Renegades’ Peter Nevill slapped a line drive that went off his teammate’s bat, then off Zampa’s face,…
Marcel Hirscher, the best alpine skier in the world, recently competed in a World Cup event in Madonna di Campiglio, Italy. A few seconds into his second slalom run, he was very nearly crushed by a falling camera drone.
Steve Harvey, the host of tonight’s Miss Universe pageant, did the one thing that the host of any award show absolutely cannot do: he announced the wrong winner. It was hilarious.
An untimed down due to a facemask penalty on what should have been the final play of the game allowed Aaron Rodgers to find Richard Rodgers in the end zone 61 yards away to give the Packers an incredible 27-23 victory. The Lions defense, which had made Aaron Rodgers look merely average on the evening, ended up the…
Wladimir Klitschko’s nearly ten-year-long reign as boxing’s heavyweight champion came to an end today as British fighter and 3-1 underdog Tyson Fury defeated the Ukranian in Düsseldorf by unanimous decision. It was Klitschko’s first loss since 2004.
We told you Holly Holm was no match for Ronda Rousey, and the challenger made us look like idiots tonight in Melbourne as Holm knocked out Rousey a minute into the second round with a head kick —ripping the title from who we previously considered the world’s most dominant athlete.
Duke took the lead on Miami with just seconds remaining in Durham, only for the Hurricanes to pull off one of the most incredible plays we’ve ever seen in college football history. A series of reviews and replays ended up with the play being called back—maybe, it’s still under review as of publication— but this is…
Portland Timbers are moving on in the MLS playoffs after defeating Sporting Kansas City in a wild match that required eleven rounds of penalties—with the winner being scored by, and then saved by, Timbers keeper Adam Kwarasey.
Michigan State found victory in the most unlikely of circumstances when the Spartans returned a botched long snap on the final play of the game to turn what the world assumed would be a 23-21 Michigan win into a 27-23 loss. This is absoutely bonkers.
