Yeah, yeah, we GIF’d this earlier but something this spectacular deserves the full Deadspin Video treatment. Perhaps the goal of this year’s World Cup, Frenchman Benjamin Pavard—who cashes checks from, uh, Stuttgart—hammered home this half-volley with, shall we say, elan.
Grant Hill learned today he’d be the newest member of the Basketball Hall of Fame. But whatever pride he might have felt at that honor dissipated, for a moment, as he saw Michigan’s Moe Wagner hurtling through the air toward him.
Now that Vin Scully’s retired, Verne Lundquist reigns supreme as the patriarch of sports broadcasting. The CBS legend got a bit more into the game than usual, though, before today’s broadcast of the Notre Dame-WVU game in Buffalo. Ouch!
A spectator at yesterday’s Porto-Feirense Portuguese league cup match learned the hard way to never look away from the match, even for a moment.
“It was the stupidest thing in 20 years doing this job,” Bernie Beaudry says. “I only saw the smoke. I didn’t see anybody coming, and then, boom!”
We are blessed by the NFL’s benevolence in its grace to provide us the finest professional football every Thursday night. We aren’t worthy of witnessing the incredible talents of the Jacksonville Jaguars weekly—let alone in such a showcase as Thursday Night Football.
Fiji eliminated New Zealand from the men’s rugby sevens bracket with a 12-7 quarterfinal win today, with the first score coming on the heels of this massive stiffarm delivered by Toulon’s Josua Tuisova. This is the good stuff.
Rougned Odor slugged José Bautista in the face following the latter’s questionable slide into second and sparked a brawl talking heads will be discussing all week. While we wait for the inevitable punishments to be handed down, let’s appreciate the point of contact as presented in extreme slow motion.
Here we see Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter doing his best impression of a Bills fan tailgating.
UCLA kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn got blown up while serving as the Bruins’ last chance to stop a Tim White kick return. But Arizona State didn’t take the kick to the house, because Fairbairn’s helmet brought White down. It’s Pac-12 after dark, at least on the east coast.
The eastern seaboard is a bit wet this morning, which provided the ideal opportunity for this lanky bro to belly-flop into a mud pit. It’s Clemsoning, visualized!
Manchester United drew 1-1 with Arsenal yesterday in a battle of clubs fighting for third place in the Premiership, and the desire to win drove Man United defender Phil Jones to the ground in search of a ball that was just a bit too elusive—no matter how much crawling it took. But even from his hands and knees, Jones…
Who’s excited? Clippers owner and perpetually enthusiastic oligarch Steve Ballmer, that’s who. He has reason to be, given his team’s outstanding effort against the Spurs tonight, but his orgasmic faces deserve an extra-special, extra-slow examination.
ESPN found a North Florida band member going berserk at today's A-Sun title game in Jacksonville, and this is before the Ospreys downed USC-Upstate to earn their first trip to the NCAA tournament. We can only assume what he did after the buzzer sounded was too extreme for television.
Jermaine Kearse completed one of the wildest catches in Super Bowl history, one that won't be remembered due to the inexplicable decision that followed. Here's our attempt to make the memory last just a bit longer; we recommend watching it in HD and fullscreen, just to take advantage of all the faces in the…
Kevin Garnett's picked up a lot from other players during his lengthy NBA career, and now it seems he's learning new skills from athletes outside of basketball—specifically soccer's Luis Suárez.
Arizona held off the Sun Devils to seize the Territorial Cup and a trip to the Pac-12 championship game today, but a late unsportsmanlike conduct penalty left Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez in an extremely combustible state.
It's been a rough night in Houston for the San Antonio Spurs, as the reigning NBA champions found themselves down big early and never had a chance to come back. Tim Duncan's stuck on the bench with a mandated night off, and it's clear he's not happy with what the Spurs scrubs are putting together.
Never shame a man who tries his hardest, as the Rams' Daren Bates did today in attempting to block a 49ers field goal—and pulled the trigger just a bit too early.
If you're old enough to remember any of the 80's, you know that ESPN wasn't always the home to 24-hour jabbering analysts and NFL talk shows. In its more fledgling days, the WWL aired whatever content to which it could obtain rights; thus, Americans were introduced to wacky hat-wearing and fingergunz-pointing…
