The Louisville Cardinals improved to 23-6 overall and 11-5 in the ACC following an 81-59 victory over the Florida State Seminoles earlier today. It was a dominating effort for the Cards that was highlighted by this ridiculous alley-oop from 6’8″ forward Montrezl Harrell.
Check it out:
Harrell finished the game with 16 points, four rebounds, one assist, one block, one steal, and one fancy new poster.
Russell Westbrook was taken to a Portland-area hospital after taking a knee to the head from OKC Thunder teammate Andre Roberson with 2.5 seconds remaining in their 115-112 loss to the Trail Blazers Friday night.
The knee occurred as the Thunder guard was trying to get his own rebound after an intentionally-missed free-throw, and it left a rather nasty dent in the side of Russell Westbrook’s head.
Here’s a look at the play that led to the dent in Russell Westbrook’s head:
And here’s another look at the damage:
Westbrook finished the game with 40 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists for his third consecutive triple-double. He was unavailable to speak with the media following the loss. More details regarding the injury are expected to come at some point over the weekend.
On the north side of Chicago you’ll find the Cubs fans, who have a history of struggling to figure out how to properly use a baseball cap. And on the south side of the city you’ll find the White Sox fans, who are still trying to get that whole digital camera thing down.
This woman thought she had it, but quit after realizing that the camera wouldn’t capture a picture of herself and her friend if the lens wasn’t pointed at them. Better luck next time beautiful.
The search for the elusive video of Dez Bryant doing something horrible has not led to the finding of the actual video in question. However, it has resulted in the uncovering of some other interesting things, like this footage of Dez Bryant’s mom talking to police about a violent altercation she had with her son a few years back.
The incident took place in Texas back in July 2012. Dez was arrested for assault following the incident, but the charges were later dropped when he cut a deal with prosecutors—he had to stay out of trouble for a year, and he did.
This is not the first time anyone has heard about this episode. The public and the league were made well aware of the fact that Bryant had grabbed his mother, Angela Bryant, smacked her with a baseball cap, and torn her shirt. But this all took place before the NFL started to pretend to care about domestic violence, so the Cowboys wide receiver was not suspended by the league for his actions.
He probably won’t be so lucky this time around, should the highly-anticipated, highly-publicized Dez Bryant video reach the public. In the meantime,we do have this video of Dez Bryant’s mom explaining that 2012 altercation to police. You can check it out below:
This Sidney Crosby stick catch took place during Wednesday night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals, but it seemed to go relatively unnoticed until yesterday afternoon.
Quite frankly, I’m surprised it didn’t go unnoticed for even longer than that, seeing as how he didn’t really have to do anything. The stick of teammate Patrick Hornqvist was sent soaring through the air before landing on the stick of an unsuspecting Crosby, who proceeded to hand it back to his teammate. It’s not like he actually meant to catch it. And he didn’t prevent it from hitting the ground or anything.
Yeah, that’s right. You can chalk me us as “unimpressed” by this Sidney Crosby stick catch. But some people at the NHL offices must have thought it was cool enough to upload to their YouTube page. So we’re showing it to you anyway.
Soccer fans across the world (and especially those in Rotterdam) should really try to be more like the supporters of English second-tier club Charlton Athletic. And by that, we mean they should start showing less hate and more love on the pitch.
In terms of hate, we’re obviously talking about acts of racism, rioting, and other forms of violence and discrimination. As for love, well, nothing says the “L” word quite like two presumably young, presumably drunk individuals going at it in the middle of a soccer pitch. And that’s exactly what happened in the middle of The Valley, if we’re to believe this video—which is probably NSFW.
Check it out (but again, we remind you that it is blurred, but still probably NSFW):
Some are skeptical as to whether this really happened on Charlton’s home pitch sometime recently, but it must have happened sometime, somewhere. And there’s footage of it. That’s good enough to garner my interest.
Charlton Athletic is looking into the matter. If it did actually happen at their field, hopefully they’ll have some alternate angles for us via their security cameras.
Soccer fans sure do suck sometimes, but after what has transpired over the past couple of weeks, I have come to the conclusion that Feyenoord fans are the absolute worst.
The Dutch side is currently taking on Roma in the round of 32 at the UEFA Europa League. Ahead of last week’s first leg match at the Stadio Olimpico, the Feyenoord fans clashed with Rome police after they had trashed numerous areas and landmarks in the Italian capital, including the Spanish Steps and the Barcaccia fountain.
Today, the two teams are playing the second leg of their Europa League match-up in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and the Feyenoord fans continued their douchebag ways when they threw a giant inflatable banana in the direction of Roma’s Gervinho (who is black) during the first half of the game.
Both sides were warned, and at one point in the second half, with Roma leading 1-0 and Feyenoord playing a man down after Mitchell te Vrede was shown a red card, the game had to be stopped because the referees feared things were getting out of hand.
The match has since been resumed, and Feyenoord has scored an equalizer, tying the game and the aggregate at 2-2. That should make for an interesting conclusion to this contest.
We still don’t have the Dez Bryant video that apparently shows him doing something horrible, but we may be getting closer to finding out exactly where this video came from.
On February 17, the NFL Media received an incident report filed by the Lancaster (Texas) Police Department that outlines an “unknown disturbance” that took place in a Walmart parking lot on the morning of July 11, 2011. According to that report, an unknown person called police when he saw a black female being dragged from one vehicle into another by a black male. And the vehicle she was being dragged from just so happened to be a Mercedes that was registered to Bryant.
When police arrived, a Walmart security guard told them that he found the Mercedes in the parking lot with the door still open. Shortly after, two men by the names of Carl King and Christopher Mitchell arrived on the scene in a black Escalade that was also registered to Bryant. They said they had been instructed by the alleged victim to pick up the Mercedes. Then Bryant and the alleged victim arrived on the scene in a Bentley, and they explained that the woman had gotten into an argument with a man named Alex Penson. She told officers that she was not assaulted or injured during the altercation, claiming that it was “just an argument,” and that she was dropped off at a friend’s house where she contacted Bryant to pick her up.
After speaking to each of the individuals involved, officers determined that no offense had taken place and everyone was free to go. But now it appears as though there may be a video of this incident that explains otherwise. Of course, that’s nothing more than a rumor at the moment, but if that rumor proves to be true, it could spell trouble for the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver.
Here’s a look at the police report that was filed by the Lancaster Police Department, via NFL.com:
It’s no secret that the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins don’t like each other. That was quite evident Wednesday night when the two teams met for the fourth and final time this season at the Verizon Center.
With no more regular season meetings on the schedule and no certainty that they’ll meet in the playoffs either, both teams seemed eager to make the most of this encounter by getting in as many blows as possible. And at one point midway through the first period, the hostilities spilled over into the Penguins bench, where a brawl broke out between several players.
It all started when the Caps’ Tom Wilson got tied up with the Pens’ Blake Comeau and Chris Kunitz in the bench area. After trading shots, Comeau put Wilson in a headlock and dragged the Caps winger into the Penguins bench, causing all hell to break loose.
Check it out:
Wilson and Michael Latta of the Caps, along with Comeau and Steve Downie of the Pens each received two minute roughing penalties for their troubles—and somehow Kunitz got away scot-free.
By the time the final horn sounded, a total of 36 minutes in penalties had been handed out and the Penguins came away with a 4-3 victory, their first against the Capitals this season.
Six days ago, KG was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Thaddeus Young. Tonight at the Target Center, the Kevin Garnett homecoming finally took place and it was just as extravagant as you’d expect.
It started with a “Welcome Home” video, followed by a standing ovation, an elaborate pregame routine, and finally, tipoff.
You can watch it all unfold in the video below:
And here’s a look at KG’s first points in his return to the T-Wolves:
Garnett recorded five points, eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and a steal in 19 minutes, and the Timberwolves beat the Wizards by a score of 97-77.
You couldn’t ask for a better homecoming than that!
Just moments ago were were writing about how Adam Schefter has confirmed that there is a video out there that shows Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant doing something bad, which has caused delays in his contract negotiations and could have a detrimental effect on his football career.
And now we’re being told that Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton is meeting with MLB officials in New York today over a disciplinary issue that is “worse than PEDs,” according to Fox’s Ken Rosenthal:
Asked a baseball executive if Hamilton’s discipline was for PEDs. His response: “Worse.” The executive declined to elaborate.
Baseball season is still over a month away, but we don’t have to wait until then to see some sweet diving grabs with the glove. Thanks to Calgary Flames goaltender Karri Ramo, we have one for you right here.
It comes to us via last night’s game between the Flames and the New York Rangers. With Ramo down and out of position, Rangers forward J.T. Miller found himself staring at an empty net from just outside the crease. But just as he was getting ready to celebrate his sixth goal of the season, he was robbed by this diving glove save from Karri Ramo.
Check it out:
Unfortunately for Ramo, he couldn’t stop every shot he faced on the evening. But his counterpart, Rangers goalie Cam Talbot, did, resulting in a 1-0 Rangers victory.
