In cricket, talking shit and trying to mentally break an opponent is known as "sledging." Interesting! Australia captain Michael Clarke sledged England batsman Jimmy Anderson during a Test match Monday in Brisbane, telling Anderson to "get ready for a broken fucking arm." It probably wouldn't have been as big of a deal if a microphone on the field didn't pick it up.

Anderson didn't get a broken fucking arm, and Clarke was punished for the comment. The International Cricket Council fined him 20 percent of a match fee in response.
