Poor, poor, 18-year-old Mile Svilar made his debut for Benfica today in a game against one of the scariest teams in England. He became the youngest-ever Champions League keeper in the process, but more to the point, he made himself a target for Manchester United’s more experienced scorers.
Have you ever found a caterpillar, fed and nurtured it in a jar, seen it through its cocoon phase, watched it emerge as a nice butterfly, and then released it into the wild with a happy little hop? Maybe Markelle Fultz did a lot of that back in the day because that’s how he shoots a damn free throw now:
The Red Sox-Astros series was looking like a real turd heading into Game 3, with the Astros having outscored the Red Sox 16-4 in a pair of lopsided games in Houston. The Red Sox responded Sunday afternoon at Fenway with some overdue offense and managed to push the series to a Game 4.
Miami U. has been the MAC’s punching bag for a decade, but the hapless RedHawks had a chance to beat a very bad BGSU team with a first-and-goal from the one and less than two minutes left in the game. Miami did not win, because they fumbled and allowed the Falcons’ Brandon Harris to take it the length of the field for…
It’s hard not to feel bad for Andre Roberson, a professional NBA player with a shot so bad that opponents will openly laugh at him during a playoff game.
Hey, shitty teams. A humble request: How about you stop giving up the easiest goals imaginable, making enormous errors in some misguided effort to play “beautiful soccer” and build up play from the back, and instead just lump the ball forward when facing your betters? This scourge must be stopped.
“The process never ends,” said 76ers GM Bryan Colangelo during media day on Monday, and while those words sounded perhaps a bit conservative at the time, now that we’ve gotten a glimpse at his team in practice, Colangelo could be right.
One of the weirdest plays of the NFL season so far just happened at the end of today’s first half in Chicago, when the Bears’ Marcus Cooper returned a blocked Steelers field goal all the way to the one-yard line. Cooper slowed up right at the end of his journey, and the special teamer suffered the consequences. He was…
We appreciate LJ Scott’s interpretative dance themed around ESPN’s ombudsman, but we feel Michigan State fans would have appreciated him performing it outside of live game action.
If walking the Bundesliga, winning the World Cup, and consolidating his place as the world’s very best goalkeeper weren’t enough to win Manuel Neuer the Ballon d’Or in 2014, when he finished third in the voting, then maybe atrocious blunders like this one today by Sven Ulreich, Bayern’s No. 2 keeper who’s played all…
You can’t fault Temple for trying a fake field goal against USF. After all, Temple is the representation of perpetual football failure, and USF is a ranked heavy favorite. But this... this is not good. Not good for the Owls, at least; it’s excellent for us as an illustration of how to do everything wrong during a fake…
I am not from Britain, nor have I ever visited, nor do I have any particular affinity for tea or meat pies or passive-aggressiveness. I do, however, watch a lot of soccer, and have recently learned how to correctly pronounce the word “twat,” so I feel comfortable watching this superbly narrated lowlight reel of Alex…
Your first reaction to this video of former Colombia national team striker Teófilo Gutiérrez pulling off one of the worst penalty kicks you’ll ever see will probably be to laugh and laugh and laugh.
Hideki Matsuyama walked onto the tee box at the par-four 15th at the BMW Championship today on a nice little run, having birdied each of the last three holes to pull fiver under on the tournament and three under on the day. Perhaps charged by this run of success, Matsuyama got into his tee shot and blasted it a very…
Louisiana Tech got blown out by Mississippi State tonight, and it’s hard to see how with such offensive finesse as this.
The big play from Friday night’s Nationals-Phillies game came when Washington’s Michael A. Taylor roped a liner to center with the bases loaded, and wound up with the rare inside-the-park grand slam. This was great fun to watch:
Sick of being swung through the air at high speeds and getting smashed against rushing white orbs, Ian Happ’s bat finally got a bit of revenge tonight, tripping up its owner as he tried to run out a grounder.
I want to show you just the worst dinger you are likely to see in this or any other year. It happened in the first inning of today’s Tigers-Indians game. Are you ready? I mean I really want you to get ready for this one. Here goes:
