Stefan Loibl of the Straubing Tigers was just giving a routine interview in the second intermission of a 4-2 loss to fellow German hockey club Kölner Haie. But just when you’re feeling safe—that’s when Der Eismaschine will strike.
The Tennessee Titans are somehow still in this wild card game against the Chiefs thanks to Marcus Mariota throwing a touchdown pass to himself, entirely legally. PLAYOFFS, BABY. We believe this is only the second time this has ever happened in NFL history; here’s the first, in 1997:
Alabama’s 25th-ranked team faced off against Minnesota in one of today’s marquee men’s basketball games, only to see its entire bench ejected after this brouhaha that, after another foul and an injury, left the team to play more than ten minutes with just three players. AND THEY CAME BACK.
Have you ever seen a quarterback ejected for targeting? Well, you’re about to.
Via reader Scott, here’s Ashland’s Cameron Mendel landing a late equalizer against Tiffin with some very fortunate placement:
Utah lost anyway, but at least they made things interesting in the process.
Division III Texas Lutheran fired home a field goal late in the first half of its win over Belhaven today, but it’s about the weirdest you’ll ever see. In fact, it was so weird officials awarded three points to the Bulldogs despite it being illegal as hell.
This is a weird strikeout!
George Coetzee eagled the 18th today at the China Open by ricocheting a shot into a once-in-a-lifetime situation—and taking the South African from one-over to one-under after the third round.
Matt Szczur reached base for the Cubs today when, in the top of the seventh inning, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was unable to corral a third strike in the dirt. The reason Molina couldn’t find the ball to put Szczur out at first? It was stuck to his belly.
Eastern Michigan smoked Charlotte tonight, but the highlight of the game was a strangely-competent EMU team kicking off from the 49ers’ 20-yard line after a series of personal fouls drawn during and after the Eagles pulled off a pick-six. We never thought we’d see this once, but then we saw it again. (We still think…
The Oklahoma City Thunder grabbed two technical foul free throws with 1.2 seconds left in the half at Sacramento tonight when Rajon Rondo found himself incapable of handling the ball for an inbounds play—twice.
Iowa State took care of things at home tonight against Oklahoma State with a 58-50 win, but that scoreline doesn’t include a Jameel McKay dunk that officials ruled a miss after the ball went through the hoop, bounced off Cowboys defender Anthony Allen’s skull and back out through the top. Maybe getting dunked on isn’t…
Kentucky won today’s SEC basketball battle in Tuscaloosa today 77-61, but it was the Crimson Tide that contributed to the college basketball corpus of literature as forward Jimmie Taylor introduced a new way of boxing out defenders to secure the offensive rebound. Despite this innovation, Taylor was whistled for a…
Northwestern is sporting its best men’s basketball team in years—maybe ever, given that the Wildcats have never, ever made the NCAA tournament—and Maryland’s fourth-ranked Terrapins are in Evanston tonight looking to darken those bright Chicago skies (heh, heh).
We love these incredible basketball plays, so here’s Michigan State’s Alvin Ellis scoring on his own basket while trying to deflect an Iowa inbound pass. It’s emblematic of the Spartans’ rough night in Iowa City; they fell to the Hawkeyes 83-70.
What you see here is Fresno State’s Jamire Jordan scoring a touchdown to narrow San Jose State’s lead over the Bulldogs. But exactly what play this is, or what it is supposed to look like, we’re completely lost. Is it supposed to be a pass play? Did guys forget to block? Is it a completely broken and improvised mess?
The Arizona Wildcats completed a true team play in Pac-12 action at UCLA last night when shortstop Kevin Newman failed to pull down a pop fly, instead allowing it to bounce off his head and—amazingly—into left fielder Jared Oliva’s glove.
