    Canelo Alvarez Records Devastating KO vs. James Kirkland (Video)

    After the lackluster Mayweather-Pacquiao fight (which we’re all ready to stop writing/talking about, I think) we could use a little excitement in the ring. Fortunately, Canelo Alvarez was able to bring just that in his matchup against James Kirkland. After landing some stiff punches in the opening rounds, sending Kirkland to the mat several times, […]

    Paul Pierce Sinks Game-Winning Jumper for the Wizards (Video)

    Not to be outdone by the rest of the photo finishes we’ve seen in round two, Paul Pierce brought a little magic of his own to the Verizon Center on Saturday. Pierce got the ball with about five seconds left and the game tied at 101. At the top of the key with his back […]

    Albany Goalie Goes Coast-to-Coast for Impressive Lax Goal (Video)

    College lacrosse doesn’t really pop up on the radar of most sports fans, but even non-fans can appreciate some of the highlights that these kids create. Take this Albany goalie, a kid by the name of Blaze Riordan, for example. He goes the distance to score a solo goal, despite being up 13-7 against Cornell. I […]

    Pirates Get the First 4-5-4 Triple Play in MLB History (Video)

    It’s almost impossible to believe, with the tens, if not hundreds of thousands of baseball games that have been played, that Major League baseball has never seen a 4-5-4 triple play. For those keeping score at home, that’s a second baseman, throwing to the third baseman, back to the second baseman. It might be a […]

    Jags First-Round Pick Dante Fowler Tears ACL, Out for Season (Video)

    Rough news for Jacksonville fans, and for Dante Fowler. The #3 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft blew out his ACL in the first hour of mini-camp, slipping on the turf. He’s out for the season and looking at a ten month rehab schedule. That’s really rough. Fortunately, Dante Fowler has been projecting an insanely […]

    Rory McIlroy Swings and Misses on a Chip from the Rough (Video)

    Take note, amateur duffers. Even guys sponsored by Nike in nifty lime green-accented outfits have their crappy shots. Rory McIlroy swung and missed entirely on #9 at the Players Championship on Saturday. He whiffed on the ball, but it did move slightly. Like an inch. Which means it’s a stroke against him. Flop shots are […]

    Derrick Rose Nails Hail Mary 3 To Give Bulls the Win (Video)

    So far the second round of the NBA Playoffs have been a pretty exciting lot of games, with Chicago-Cleveland serving as the highest-profile series. Game three was another barnburner as the score was tied at 96 when Derrick Rose jacked up an ill-advised, but on-the-mont three pointer at the buzzer that careened off the backboard to give […]

    Will Ferrell Gets His Own Baseball Card from Topps (Pic)

    I think Will Ferrell has done enough sports-related films that he can safely be called an honorary athlete. And if we can get a card of Nolan Ryan throwing a football, or Michael Jordan playing baseball, then we can get one of Will Ferrell pretending to be a baseball player. That iron-clad logic aside, his […]

    Corey Brewer Fined for this Shameful, Shameful Flop (Video)

    Flopping in the NBA has become more prevalent in the past decade or so, but it’s nice to see that the league is taking pains to curb it, even if those efforts are often inconsistent. In last Wednesday night’s Clippers-Rockets game, Lester Hudson of LA put his hands on Corey Brewer to achieve some separation, […]

  • Astros OF Jake Marisnick Records Rare Unassisted Double Play (Video)

    Astros OF Jake Marisnick Records Rare Unassisted Double Play (Video)

    Double plays are normally tense affairs that involve a race between the runner and the ball to first base. When you factor in an outfielder, that play becomes even more high-wire with a long throw. However, an unassisted double play from an outfielder is so rare that we don’t really have any expectations, because it […]

  • Jon Stewart Puts Deflategate in Perspective, of Course (Video)

    Jon Stewart Puts Deflategate in Perspective, of Course (Video)

    There are a few crusaders in the media (television, mostly) who will lift our collective heads up from whatever scandal we’re absorbed in, and slap us across the face. One of those guys is Jon Stewart, and one of those scandals is Deflategate. So it’s no surprise that he went on an eight-minute tear about […]
