    9 Year-Old Girl Nails Center Ice Shot at an AHL Game (Video)

    I’m not sure what drew the masses to the Charlotte Checkers AHL game a few nights back, but they likely found that the game was well worth the price of admission after seeing 9 year-old Karleigh Nalette nail a shot from center ice. And it wasn’t like this was some open goal. Nope. Karleigh managed to […]

    Patrik Nemeth Gets Puck Wedged Between His Visor and Face (Video)

    I think we can safely file this play under “Close Calls.” The Stars‘ Patrik Nemeth was minding his own business, as hockey players so often do, when he lifted his head up to find that a simple dump-in from a Calgary player had turned him into a pirate.

    If you ever wondered what a six-foot tall, cat-like can of Silly Spray looks like, the 76ers mascot has you covered. It’s pretty bizarre, and pretty gross.

    Target Cart Basketball Is Your New Favorite Kind of Basketball (Video)

    NCAA basketball is a ton of fun, and NBA basketball can be pretty spectacular. However, neither of them can compare to the awesomeness of Target cart basketball. What is Target cart basketball? It’s exactly what it sounds like: basketball with a Target shopping cart as the hoop. Preferably played in Target, preferably to the chagrin […]

    13 Heroic Sideline Reporters Hit by Balls in the Line of Duty

    What sports fans don’t have a good laugh when they see sideline reporters hit by balls? Comic relief is pretty much the only thing sideline reporters are good for. That’s not to say sideline reporters aren’t talented journalists. Some of them definitely are. But it is to say their job is silly. The only thing they do is ask obvious, cliched […]

    In case anyone forgot over the course of a long offseason, Yasiel Puig has a cannon for an arm. He reminded us on Sunday.
