I can certainly forgive Cleveland sports fans for not remembering the proper way to celebrate a championship, but one thing I cannot forgive is anyone who thinks it’s appropriate to eat a handful of horse sh*t at any time, for any reason, to celebrate anything.
That’s exactly what this one Cavs fan did during Wednesday’s championship parade in Cleveland. And it was disgusting.
Take a look:
I hope he didn’t kiss his girlfriend with that mouth full of sh*t afterwards.
A scary incident unfolded during the ninth inning of last night’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Oakland A’s, as home plate umpire Paul Emmel suffered a nasty gash over his head when he was struck by the bat of Angels pinch hitter Jefry Marte.
The bat appeared to slip out of Marte’s hands during his follow-through on a swinging strike, hitting Emmel in the head and dropping him to his knees in pain.
Thankfully, Emmel was fully alert and able to leave the field under his own power. He was attended to by the Angels’ training staff before being taken to the hospital for stitches.
The New York Knicks are no longer content with being Eastern Conference bottom-feeders.
According to ESPN‘s sources, the Knicks have acquired former NBA MVP Derrick Rose from the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon, and Jerian Grant. The Knicks will also receive Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick as part of the deal.
The moves gives the Knicks their own “Big Three” with Rose, Carmelo Anthony, and Kristaps Porzingis. Of course, this is assuming Rose can stay healthy, which seems unlikely, given the fact that he’s missed 162 games over the last four seasons as a result of an assortment of injuries.
I’m sure that one day LeBron James will have a statue of himself resurrected in the city of Cleveland, but in the meantime he has a giant billboard. And while passing that billboard during today’s championship parade, LeBron mimicked his famous pose.
Portugal entered the 2016 European Championships as a heavy favorite to win Group F, but after a couple of lackluster draws against the likes of Iceland and Austria, they now need a victory against Hungary to assure themselves of a spot in the knockout round.
Needless to say, it’s been a disappointing tournament for Portugal thus far, and the same can certainly be said for their star forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.
How exactly does Ronaldo feel about all of this? Unfortunately, we’re not quite sure because when one reporter attempted to find out the answer to that question, the Real Madrid superstar tossed his microphone into a lake.
Seriously. Ronaldo actually grabbed the microphone from the reporter’s hand and tossed it into a nearby lake ahead of today’s final group stage match against Hungary.
Check it out:
Should Portugal fail to qualify for the knockout round, that reporter may want to steer clear of Ronaldo, else he could be following his microphone into that lake in Lyon.
The Republic of Ireland’s time at the 2016 UEFA European Championships could end today if the team fails to beat first-place Italy in Group E action.
But even if they don’t advance to the knockout stage, Ireland’s Euro 2016 campaign should still be considered a success thanks to their fans, who provided us with one of the greatest highlights from the tournament when they serenaded this French smokeshow in the streets with Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You.”
Check it out:
And here’s how it looked from the point-of-view of the blonde smokeshow, who has since been identified as Carla Romera:
Good news for fans of naked athletes. Another edition of ESPN’s “The Body Issue” is set to hit newsstands and the internet in just a few weeks. And in an attempt to amp up the anticipation for this year’s issue, ESPN has unveiled a list of the athletes they’ve convinced to bare it all for the camera.
It’s quite an impressive list of athletes, which includes a reigning Super Bowl MVP, a reigning Cy Young winner, and a reigning UFC champ.
On several occasions, LeBron James has alluded to a “secret motivation” that has driven him to win a championship in Cleveland. James has never publicly stated what that secret motivation is, but after finally taking the Cavaliers to the promise land, and earning Finals MVP honors in the process, someone finally decided to spill the beans.
That someone is ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, who claims that when LeBron notified the Miami Heat that he was leaving to return to Cleveland, someone within the organization told him, “you’re making the biggest mistake of your life.”
We’re assuming that “someone” who made the comment is Pat Riley, and apparently it was quite hurtful to King James.
Now that LeBron James is done proving (at least for a few months) that he’s one of the greatest basketball players of all time, the NBA Finals MVP appears to have shifted his focus to improving his troll game.
His latest work comes in the form of an “Ultimate Warrior” t-shirt, which James wore while exiting the Cavs’ plane in Cleveland earlier today—with the Larry O’Brien Trophy in hand:
As if watching your son lose Game 7 of the NBA Finals on Father’s Day wasn’t already bad enough, Steph Curry‘s dad, Dell Curry, also had to endure a drive-by dabbing after being faked out by a handshake offer from some dude following the game.
You can check out the savage act, which was caught on camera, in the video below:
You’d think a city who hasn’t won a major professional sports championship in 52 years would be setting the town on fire after ending their over-half-a-century drought.
And you’d be wrong.
Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said that despite the couple of incidents of crime that were reported overnight, he was very pleased with the manner in which his city’s fans celebrated the Cavs’ victory on Sunday.
According to reports, there were people dancing on cars, climbing on traffic signs, buses and a fire truck, and there was even two reported shootings with one dude getting struck in the ankle.
Doesn’t seem like the tamest celebration, to be honest, but I guess it could have been a lot worse.
Here’s some footage of Cavs fans celebrating their city’s first championship since 1964:
