You’d think that Runcorn Linnets, the name of an English soccer club currently competing in the North West Counties League a whopping eight divisions below the Premier League, wouldn’t hold much importance outside of the tiny pocket of ostensible fans tucked away in northern England. You’d be wrong.
Coventry City fans don’t take losing home matches against relegation candidates too lightly, apparently. Hence this Coventry supporter making his way onto the pitch during his team’s 1-0 loss to Forest Green in England’s fourth tier to really make his displeasure felt:
Mohamed Salah was Egypt’s hero yesterday, scoring twice in a 2-1 win over Congo that officially stamped the Egyptians’ tickets to next summer’s World Cup. This is just the third time Egypt have ever qualified for the World Cup, and will be their first one since 1990. Hence why this cute old man melted into a puddle of…
Dean Spanos and the Los Angeles Chargers recently asked the Federal Aviation Administration to grant what is called a temporary flight restriction over StubHub Center on Chargers game days, arguing that an airplane flying over an arena packed with NFL fans is an inherently dangerous proposition. Of course, that’s not…
When I set out for the Meadowlands on Sunday morning with Anders Kapur, I hoped to find tailgating Jets fans who were in a good mood. This might sound like an impossible mission—are Jets fans even capable of experiencing joy?—but my interactions with Jets fans through the years have taught me that their fatalism is…
So, this video. It sure is something. Specifically, it is a group of Tottenham fans performing their Spurs-themed version of The Lion King’s “Circle of Life,” named “Tottenham For Life.” You should listen to it. It is, uhh, interesting.
Hot, steamy Europa League action kicks off this afternoon, and the formerly great Premier League club Arsenal’s first opponent will be the German Bundesliga’s FC Koln, whose fans took an approximately 600 kilometer trip on a Thursday in order to completely overtake the streets of London. These incredibly enthusiastic…
Charlie Blackmon is one of the best center fielders in baseball and has an extremely large beard. Both of these things have put him in good position to be a favorite among Rockies fans, and it looks like the formula is working for him:
You know where a Jedd Gyorko home run ball belongs?
The 42,225 fans at yesterday’s Dodgers-Royals tilt at Dodger Stadium were treated to an unexpected delight when an elderly woman boogying down on the videoboard caught a little too much of the spirit and flashed the crowd.
It’s the sounds these Mancunian tykes make after running up to Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard’s car—something between wanting to laugh and wanting to cry and wanting to puke—that makes this video:
This tearfully happy nonagenarian is one Juan Osorio of Argentina. The very, very longtime (he’s 94 years old) fan of Argie club Independiente Rivadavia was overcome with emotion this weekend when the local boys doubled their lead against Argentinos Juniors in what for Independiente was a big game:
Penguins fans celebrated last night’s Stanley Cup victory the way most fanbases do: by gathering in the streets and getting rowdy. Some fans were a little wilder than others, and by “wilder” I mean “more willing to consume mashed-up raw fish.”
Packers cornerback Davon House was trying to get to OTAs on Monday night when his connecting flight from Minneapolis to Green Bay was cancelled. With no more flights leaving that night and a shortage of rental cars, House found himself in a tough spot:
In the sixth inning of last night’s game between the Phillies and Rockies, Freddy Galvis fouled a Jeff Hoffman fastball into the second deck behind home plate. That’s where Josh Persing, owner of a Brad Lidge jersey and a thick Philly accent, was waiting to pounce.
It was a full-on party today in Barcelona as the Catalan club blasted Osasuna by a score of 7-1. Before the game, fans unveiled a massive banner to commemorate Lionel Messi’s 500th Barça goal, the one he scored this weekend when he snipped the balls off of Real Madrid and then celebrated in the most badass way…
The Penguins beat the Blue Jackets 4-1 yesterday, and the best performance of the night belonged not to anyone on the ice, but to this spectator:
There were quite a few empty seats at yesterday’s World Baseball Classic game between Venezuela and Italy, and that provided one daring fan an opportunity to show off his acrobatic abilities while chasing down a foul ball.
Most of the time when someone pretends to be sick so as to gain admission to a hospital, it’s to finagle their way into a prescription for drugs to slake an addiction. Yesterday, one Italian man tried something similar, though his addiction is to soccer and his satisfaction could be found right there outside the…
Adam Lallama. Adam Lallama. A llama, with Adam Lallana’s face. I’m almost tearing up over the beauty of it all.
