Set point, nerves jangling, sweaty palms—it’s not all that uncommon for a player’s racquet to slip out of their hands on the followthrough of a serve under circumstances like these. It is, however, completely nuts for that racquet to then strike the court at such a precise angle so that it bounces neatly back to the…
Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas is probably not going to win this third-round match against Rafa Nadal at the Paris indoors. But he’ll always have this between-the-legs passing shot to look back on as a career highlight.
I love watching sports live, but I also love to relive the magic of a great play or a brutal block over and over again.
You see a lot of crazy trick shots from practices and shootarounds, but the amazing part about this LeBron James full-court swish is how casual it is. He might as well be throwing a damn golf ball.
I don't know exactly how far Barcelona full back Martín Montoya is from the hoop—speaking of, why is there a basketball goal on the soccer field?—here, but regardless, booting a ball into it from any distance is damn impressive. If this is real, of course.
This kid from Gonzaga won $500 for doing something nobody on Earth could do again on purpose. Seems like it should be worth more than that?
Trick shot artist Rémi Gaillard has a new World Cup-themed video out, and oh man is this dude good at soccer trick shots. I would wager that he is better at this than any of us will ever be at anything.
John Daly's still got it, if "it" is trick shots from a tee in a woman's mouth.
The most deceptive thing about watching the NBA is the way, from time to time, it makes everyone seem totally incompetent. We know that all these guys can make shot after shot when they're all alone, but there's enough cognitive dissonance to convince ourselves that, say, despite the threat of a 6'9 small forward…
You know those videos that come into your life under a headline like, "I Can't Stop Watching This Whatever Do Something"? This video of Lawrence University long snapper John Doran is not that. I can stop watching his trick shot video. It's not terribly difficult to pull myself away from it at all. It's a compilation…
No, we don't care how many attempts this took. The ground-level replays are great.
This happened over the weekend at the ITTF Kuwait Open (that explains the announcer), but we're just getting it to you now because we assumed you hadn't yet received your Kuwait Open highlights DVD. Sue us.
Things we did not know: Campbell University, in North Carolina, has a PGA-accredited golf management program. It "allows students to acquire the specialized knowledge and skills necessary for success in the golf industry." One of those skills is trick shots. Each month, the program has a competition among classes,…
This video has been making its way around the internet today, and everybody who watches it is like, "Awwww look at that precious little baby throwing balls into his little baby-sized basketball hoop. What a cute, talented baby that is!" Even those saps at Gawker got in on the act.
Some trickery! Not only did Bob Bryan nonchalantly whip out the between-the-legs move that's apparently in his arsenal, he did so down a set, during a tiebreak, and hammered a winner to follow it up. The Bryan twins went on to win the tiebreak, and controlled the third set 6-3 to give them the match against Scott…
Look, it's not the "greatest Frisbee catch in the history of Frisbee catches," but it is Frisbee trick shot expert Brodie Smith and some random people in Nordiques jerseys—OK, and one Maple Leafs fan—defy the laws of physics throughout the Colisée Pepsi, so there's that.
I'm not really sure how you verify such a thing, but the dudes from Dude Perfect are claiming this is the world's largest slingshot. Once constructed, they successfully made a basket. After launching a few other items, a panda plants what appears to be a branch to replace the tree they cut down. It is the circle of…
This is one of those trick shot videos that are all the rage these days. It seems that Mattingly, son Preston (and future Yankees MVP) and some other local Evansville, Indiana super stars have their own now called Trickwinkle? I don't know. A bear is involved.
I'm not confident that I understand the plot here, but just enjoy the never before seen mix of soccer trick shots and Christmas featuring UNC Asheville's Lassi Hurskainen.
