As if the photos of Usain Bolt in bed with some random Brazilian chick weren’t enough, now this…

That’s bolt making out with that same chick he was snapped in bed with during his time in Rio for the 2016 Games. She even retweeted the photo herself, and added more tweets about the fastest man in the world.

This one translates to “Enough about Bolt”:

And this one says, “As I said my night with Bolt was ‘normal’”:

Doesn’t sound like she’s shying away from the attention.

France’s Yohann Diniz Soiled Himself While Leading Men’s 50km Walk (Pics)

French Runner Poop Himself

Everyone dreams of leading a big race at the Olympics. I doubt during any of those dreams we’ve imagined ourselves sh*ting our pants in front of millions.

France’s Yohann Diniz probably never envisioned such a moment as he prepared for his 50km walk at the 2016 Rio Games, but there he was, with the race lead and a stream of poop running down his leg as the world looked on:

He even tried to clean himself with a sponge:

Unfortunately, the sponge didn’t help and the poop slowed him down enough to drop him back into seventh place.

Matej Tóth from Slovakia didn’t sh*t his pant, and he also wound up taking home the gold.

Olympic Weightlifter Has the Best Celebratory Dance…For a Good Cause (Video)

David Katoatau didn’t win a medal in the men’s 105kg weightlifting competition. Heck, he didn’t even come close, finishing in 14th place out of 17 competitors.

But he should at least get something for his epic dance moves, which he’s apparently using to help raise awareness towards the climate issues he’s facing in his home country of Kiribati.

Via Reuters:

Kiribati, located in the Central Pacific, is suffering “extreme coastal erosion not just of the beaches but also of the land” according to its government.

Some scientists have predicted a catastrophic effect on Kiribati’s 21 inhabited islands.

“Most people don’t know where Kiribati is,” Katoatau told Reuters. “I want people to know more about us so I use weightlifting, and my dancing, to show the world.

Speaking of dancing, here’s a look at some of Katoatau’s moves following both a successful and an unsuccessful lift at the 2016 Rio Games:

Internet Reacts to Shaunae Miller’s Dive For Gold in 400-Meters (Video + Tweets)

Athletics - Olympics: Day 10

On Monday at the Olympic Games in Rio, Bahamas sprinter Shaunae Miller pulled off a massive upset in the women’s 400-meter finals as she beat American favorite Allyson Felix with a desperate dive at the finish line.

That dive by Miller put her over the line just ahead of Felix—six one hundredths of a second, to be exact— and it also drew the ire of people all over the internet.

First, here’s a look at how it all went down:

Here are a couple of images from the photo finish:

And finally, here’s how the internet reacted to Miller’s dive at the line for gold:

Ravens Stop Preseason Game to Play Michael Phelps’ Gold Medal Race on Jumbotron (Videos)

Ravens Phelps Jumbotron

What’s more important: a week one preseason contest between the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers or the gold medal race for the 200m individual medley at the Rio Olympics?

With Michael Phelps looking to make history by winning his fourth straight Olympic gold medal in the same event, the answer to the above question has to be the 200-meter individual medley.  And the Ravens must agree, as they stopped their meaningless preseason game on Thursday night to show the fans inside M&T Bank Stadium Phelps’ record-breaking performance on the jumbotron.

Check it out:

That right there was easily the most entertaining moment from the Ravens’ 22-19 victory over the Panthers.

Pirates Fan Misses Foul Ball, Gets Face Full of Nachos (Video)

Pirates fan nachos

Missing the catch is embarrassing enough.  Unfortunately for this poor Pittsburgh Pirates fan, he not only had to deal with that bit of shame, but he had to do so while donning a face full of chili and cheese nachos.

Let this be a lesson to all of you kids out there: If you have a plate of nachos in your hand, don’t try to be a hero.  Just let the souvenir baseball go.

Here’s a look at the messy incident from last night’s Padres-Pirates game:

LSU’s Leonard Fournette in Street Fight vs. Teammate? (Video)

Leonard Fournette slap fight

Real fight or play fight?

That’s the question that everyone is asking after seeing footage of LSU running back Leonard Fournette squaring off against Tigers offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield in a street fight.

Fournette has claimed that it was merely just a playful slap-fight between two teammates, and LSU Associate Athletic Director of Communications Michael Bonnette has echoed that notion, claiming the two were simply playing “a game where they basically have to touch the other person twice.”

But the footage, on the other hand, seems to tell a different story. Check out the video below and see if you believe it was just a friendly slap fight, or the real thing:

Jeff Fisher Cut WR Deon Long For Bringing Girl Back to Rams Training Camp Dorm

Wide receiver Deon Long was probably already a long-shot to make the Los Angeles Rams, but he didn’t do himself any favors by breaking the team’s rules and bringing a female back to his training camp dorm room.

That move by Long is what caused Rams head coach Jeff Fisher to cut him last week.  And that news was unveiled during the first episode of  HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”

Shortly after it was announced, the internet chimed in:

Internet Reacts to Michael Phelps Beating Chad Le Clos in 200m Butterfly Finals (Tweets)

We all know the backstory by now.

Michael Phelps had dominated the 200-meter butterfly event at the Olympics, winning the gold in 2004 and 2008.  But in 2012 in London, it was Chad le Clos who shocked the world by upsetting Phelps in the 200-meter butterfly final to take the gold.

Four years later, Phelps was  looking for some revenge in the pool at Rio.

Prior to their semi-final heat on Monday, while waiting backstage, cameras caught Phelps directing a death stare at Le Clos, which sent the internet into a frenzy.

And on Tuesday, after Phelps beat LeClos and the other six competitors in the 200-meter butterfly finals to take home his 20th career Olympic gold medal, the internet went nuts once again.

First, some footage of the race:

And here’s a look at some of the greatest reactions to Phelps’ victory over Le Clos in the butterfly finals:

Report: Tim Tebow to Pursue Baseball Career, Hold Workouts For MLB Teams

Sounds like Tim Tebow‘s football career is all but finished, and his baseball career is just about to begin.

According to Tebow’s agents, the former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback will hold workouts for Major League Baseball teams as he pursues a career in professional baseball.

The workouts are expected to take place later this month, after Tebow spent the past year training as a batter and outfielder in Arizona and Los Angeles.  The 28-year-old hasn’t played baseball since high school, when he earned all-state honors as a member of Nease High School in Florida.

Of course, Tebow’s chances of translating these workouts into a Major League career are probably quite slim, but he’s never been one to shy away from a challenge.

Lindsey Vonn Suffers REVEALING Wardrobe Malfunction at Dodgers Gala (PICS)

I’m not sure what Lindsey Vonn thought would happen when she wore a long gown with a high slit that reaches her crotch area on a windy day.  She probably didn’t think it would result in her box appearing all over the internet, but that’s exactly what’s taking place right now.

Vonn was making an appearance at the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation Blue Diamond gala, where she was trying to show off her legs on the red carpet, but ended up treating the audience to a little more than that.

DeMar DeRozan’s Missed 360 Dunk Over Defender Was Almost the Best Dunk Ever (Video)

DeMar DeRozan came inches away from topping Vince Carter’s ridiculous dunk over French center Frederic Weis from the 2000 Olympics.

Unfortunately, DeRozan’s 360 slam over a Chinese defender during USA’s tune-up for the upcoming Rio Games last night fell short, but it’s still pretty amazing to watch.

Michael Jordan Releases Statement on Recent Shootings Across America

Michael Jordan usually remains silent when it comes to political issues, but with tensions between African-Americans and police at an all-time high, the G.O.A.T. felt it was time to finally take a stand.

MJ broke his silence with a lengthy statement he released earlier today, which is titled, “I Can No Longer Stay Silent.”

You can read Jordan’s entire statement, via The Undefeated, below:

“As a proud American, a father who lost his own dad in a senseless act of violence, and a black man, I have been deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement and angered by the cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers. I grieve with the families who have lost loved ones, as I know their pain all too well.

“I was raised by parents who taught me to love and respect people regardless of their race or background, so I am saddened and frustrated by the divisive rhetoric and racial tensions that seem to be getting worse as of late. I know this country is better than that, and I can no longer stay silent. We need to find solutions that ensure people of color receive fair and equal treatment AND that police officers – who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all – are respected and supported.

“Over the past three decades I have seen up close the dedication of the law enforcement officers who protect me and my family. I have the greatest respect for their sacrifice and service. I also recognize that for many people of color their experiences with law enforcement have been different than mine. I have decided to speak out in the hope that we can come together as Americans, and through peaceful dialogue and education, achieve constructive change.

“To support that effort, I am making contributions of $1 million each to two organizations, the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. The Institute for Community-Police Relations’ policy and oversight work is focused on building trust and promoting best practices in community policing. My donation to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the nation’s oldest civil rights law organization, will support its ongoing work in support of reforms that will build trust and respect between communities and law enforcement. Although I know these contributions alone are not enough to solve the problem, I hope the resources will help both organizations make a positive difference.

“We are privileged to live in the world’s greatest country – a country that has provided my family and me the greatest of opportunities. The problems we face didn’t happen overnight and they won’t be solved tomorrow, but if we all work together, we can foster greater understanding, positive change and create a more peaceful world for ourselves, our children, our families and our communities.”

NFL Rule Changes For 2016 Includes Re-Wording of Catch Rule

Dez Bryant Catch Rule

The start of the 2016 NFL season is less than two months away, so now may be a good time to start familiarizing yourself with some of the new rules implemented by the league during the offseason.

Via the NFL’s official rulebook for the 2016 season, here’s a list of all the new rule changes taking place this year:

NFL 2016 Rule Changes

One rule that won’t be changed is the controversial “Catch Rule.”  However, in an effort to help provide some clarity to the often mis-interpreted rule, the league has decided to re-word their definition of a completed or intercepted pass.

Here it is (via Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3 of the NFL Rule Book):

ARTICLE 3. COMPLETED OR INTERCEPTED PASS. A player who makes a catch may advance the ball. A forward pass is
complete (by the offense) or intercepted (by the defense) if a player, who is inbounds:

(a) secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground; and
(b) touches the ground inbounds with both feet or with any part of his body other than his hands; and
(c) maintains control of the ball after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, until he has the ball long enough to clearly become a
runner. A player has the ball long enough to become a runner when, after his second foot is on the ground, he is capable
of avoiding or warding off impending contact of an opponent, tucking the ball away, turning up field, or taking additional
steps (see 3-2-7-Item 2).

Note: If a player has control of the ball, a slight movement of the ball will not be considered a loss of possession. He must
lose control of the ball in order to rule that there has been a loss of possession.

If the player loses the ball while simultaneously touching both feet or any part of his body to the ground, it is not a catch.

So that’s what constitutes a catch. Get it now?…

Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Kobe Bryant Gets Slimmed With Gold at Kids’ Choice Sports Awards (Video + Pics)

Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards 2016 - Show

On Thursday, just one day after being honored at the ESPY Awards, retired Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant was the recipient of another honor—the Legend Award at the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards.

So what do you get when you win the Legend Award at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards? You get a trophy, and a heavy dousing with some gooey golden slime.

I never assumed Kobe to be the type of guy who would enjoy a sliming, but it’s for the kids, so he was a good sport about it all.

Here’s a video of Kobe receiving his award, saying a speech, and getting slimed:
