French Soccer Ref Loses His Mind After Getting Accidentally Tripped By Player French Soccer Ref Loses His Mind After Getting Accidentally Tripped By Player

Because soccer referees need to be in the thick of the action, every now and then they will be inadvertently tripped up or bowled over by a player. A normal reaction to this is for the ref to clamber back to his feet with a smirk, and maybe laugh about the accident with the sheepish player once play has stopped. What…

Sleepy DeMarcus Cousins Pays Dearly For Passing Ball To Wrong Team Sleepy DeMarcus Cousins Pays Dearly For Passing Ball To Wrong Team

In the opening minutes of today’s Knicks-Pelicans tilt DeMarcus Cousins found himself in an awkward spot, loading up a pass to teammate Anthony Davis just as Davis shifted inside, and as defenders Enes Kanter and Kristaps Porzingis closed in to deny the action. Sunday afternoon basketball is sometime sleepy,…

May All Your Failures End Up As Serendipitously As This Soccer Coach's Attempt To Lean Against A Fence

I don’t think I’ve ever done anything on purpose with the poise and commitment that Marius Sumudica, manager of the Turkish soccer team Kayserispor, brings to playing off this accidental fall so that it looks like he intended all along to lower himself into a metal hammock. Seems comfy.

LPGA Pro Attempts Phil Mickelson Flop Shot Trick, Brains Caddie LPGA Pro Attempts Phil Mickelson Flop Shot Trick, Brains Caddie

You’ve probably seen the clip of Phil Mickelson hitting one of his famous flop shots over a terrified Dave Pelz, stationed not more than three or four feet from the point of contact. That’s about as bitchin’ as golf stunts get, and it is definitely not something you should ever try with anyone you especially care…

Here is Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, boldly and tragically attempting the old off-the-backboard self-assist during last night’s loss to the Clippers:

Pacers Completely Blow It Thanks To Dumbest Possible Pass Pacers Completely Blow It Thanks To Dumbest Possible Pass

Victor Oladipo and Kyrie Irving treated everyone to an enthralling late-game duel tonight, combining for 20 points in the final two minutes of the game and swapping huge threes down the stretch. The Pacers trailed for the first 47 minutes of the game and struggled to stop Boston in the first half (Jayson Tatum got…

Brook Lopez And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Second Quarter Brook Lopez And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Second Quarter

Yes, yes, you’re probably more interested in LeBron vs. Lonzo (James 25-12-12 despite a slightly off shooting night, and tied Larry Bird for sixth all-time with his 59th triple-double; Ball’s was overall very good, with 13 points, 11 assists, and eight boards, but six turnovers), or what James said to Ball at…

Giannis Had Two Dope Slams And Would've Had A Third If Not For John Henson Giannis Had Two Dope Slams And Would've Had A Third If Not For John Henson

Giannis Antetokounmpo produced some top-tier highlight clips despite a 115-108 loss to the Pelicans. Early in the night, he contorted himself on a drive and used his long arms to flush it.

Soccer Player Crumples In Shame After Sending Penalty Kick Straight To The Moon Soccer Player Crumples In Shame After Sending Penalty Kick Straight To The Moon

When standing over a late, potentially match-winning penalty against top-of-the-table opposition, as Zwolle captain Bram van Polen found himself in yesterday’s game against AZ Alkmaar, the last thing you want your resulting shot attempt to inspire in the crowd is an immediate wave of shocked horror. Just look at all…

Dunk Attempt Ends In Flying Knee Dunk Attempt Ends In Flying Knee

At the Sturgeon Heights Pros vs. Joes event last week, former CFL player Jordan Reaves attempted to entertain attendees by dunking a basketball over Ismail Zaid. He certainly entertained everyone (except for maybe Zaid), though he did not come close to actually accomplishing the dunk.

Falcons Win In Wild Finish After Brees Interception And Payton Penalty

Atlanta overcame three Matt Ryan interceptions to come back and beat New Orleans, thanks to Saints quarterback Drew Brees throwing his own awful interception with his team in game-tying field goal range followed by Sean Payton drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that prevented his team from ever getting the…

The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Failed Dive The Sports Highlight Of The Day Is This Failed Dive

Diving is an impressive sport. Athletes train endlessly so they can nail near-perfect dives, over and over. Even at the high school level, it’s pretty cool.

Here Is The Exact Moment The Suns Gave Up Here Is The Exact Moment The Suns Gave Up

The Phoenix Suns were actually up by two on the Celtics in the third quarter in Boston yesterday, but they didn’t show much interest in keeping that lead. With the Suns on defense, some miscommunication led to Marcus Smart having an entire half of the court to himself. Smart couldn’t knock down the three, but when the…

Georgia Tech Lost On A Last Second Own-Basket Georgia Tech Lost On A Last Second Own-Basket

Oh man. Georgia Tech spent the final ten minutes of their game Friday night against underdog Grambling State scrambling back from a 16-point deficit, finally grabbing a one-point lead on a Jose Alvarado three-pointer with 1:02 left on the game clock. The teams traded free throws over the next 30 seconds, and the…

The Chicago Bulls Play "The Beautiful Game" The Chicago Bulls Play "The Beautiful Game"

Casual basketball fans tend to wax rhapsodic about the fluid ball movement and deep unselfishness of San Antonio or Golden State. But true lovers of the sport look only to Chicago. Study every detail of this possession from last night’s Suns-Bulls game; this is what peak performance looks like.

We Have A Contender For Worst Play Of The Season We Have A Contender For Worst Play Of The Season

Son, we recruited you to Western Kentucky to do one thing: punt the football. And you’ve done a hell of a job of punting that football this season. But what you did right here tonight, well, you did everything that wasn’t punting a football.

Giants Find Yet Another Way To Fail Giants Find Yet Another Way To Fail

Perhaps tired of seeing Eli Manning’s leadership of the New York offense come up dreadfully short, Giants coach Ben McAdoo called a toss for running back Shane Vereen and hoped he could give the team a lead with a tricky pass play. It went as well as any other McAdoo decision this year, with Vereen underthrowing into…
