    Some fans will do just about anything to meet their favorite sports star, including jumping from the stands into the players tunnel several feet below.  This woman was likely arrested shortly after “dropping in” on the action, but at least she was kind enough to avoid landing on any of the Argentine players.

    Coming Up A Belt Short Of A Photo With Lionel Messi (Video)

    A belt.  For one poor soul, that would prove to be the difference between a photo with the world’s top footballer, Lionel Messi, and public embarrassment on national television. Attempting to chase down the Barcelona star at the airport for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity, this man’s hustle left him with a difficult […]

    With Argentina only three victories away from the country’s third World Cup title, the possibility of coach Diego Maradona living up to his promise of streaking through the streets of South Africa naked is becoming more and more likely.  Unfortunately for the many who will be forced against their will to witness such an event, […]

    Picture Of The Day: Special Goal For A Special Boy

    “Derp, derp, derp, I scored another one!” Sure, Gonzalo Higuain may look like he is playing soccer in the Special Olympics here, but the only thing special about this pic is the goal that the Argentinian striker would score after dancing around Mexican goalkeeper Oscar Perez.  Equally special was the work of the cameraman during […]

    Professional athletes are understandably annoyed by intrusive cameramen and reporters and it doesn’t get much more intrusive than being smacked in the face with a camera. Like Dennis Rodman before him, Argentina’s Gabrel Heinze attacked a cameraman, but as you can see it was warranted this time. Luckily Argentina won and can go on to […]

    How do you slow down Lionel Messi?  Nigeria and South Korea tried just about everything in their power, from vicious slide tackles, to grabbing his jersey, but their efforts were largely unsuccessful as the man they call “The Flea” has terrorized defenses through the opening round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, on Tuesday […]
