    25 Hilarious Diving Fails (GIFs)

    When the temperature is soaring and the summer sun is blazing, nothing feels better than diving into a cold pool or lake. To go suddenly from painfully hot to blissfully cool is just one of life’s great pleasures, right up there with cracking open a cold one after a long afternoon of yard work, or […]

    High School Pitcher Makes Incredible One-Handed Catch (Video)

    Baseball pitchers aren’t exactly known for their fielding abilities, but that may soon change if we continue to see them make catches like the one produced by Joe Robie during Ohio’s Three Rivers Athletic Conference championship baseball game. After watching his catcher make a brilliant effort on a weak pop-up just a few feet in front […]

    Here’s Danny Coale’s Amazing Catch That Was Ruled No Catch (Video)

    While watching the first overtime of last night’s All-State Sugar Bowl between Michigan and Virginia Tech, I thought I had just witnessed the greatest catch of the 2011-12 NCAA Bowl season when Hokies wide receiver Danny Coale made a diving grab at the edge of the end zone, as he secured the ball in his […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Cannon Ball!

    Picture Of The Day: Cannon Ball!

    Because of the fact that this is the “Red Bull Cliff Diving Championships,” and not the “Red Bull Cliff Jumping Cannon Ball Championships,” I am going to assume that this guy was not performing a cannon ball during his jump.  But with that being said, don’t you think it would be pretty cool if he […]

    Battle Of The Great Stick Saves: Roloson vs. High School Kid (Videos)

    In the Red corner we have Tampa Bay goaltender Dwayne Roloson, who made this incredible diving stick save after the puck deflected off the skate of his own defenseman during last night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.  The save helped keep the game scoreless with over five minutes remaining in the first period.  Roloson and […]

    Find yourself feeling rather bored these days?  Looking to add a little excitement to your life?  We may have just the thing for you.  All you need is some rope, a giant cliff, water, and a whole lot of balls (or guts, for the ladies). Okay, so perhaps you need a little more than that, […]

    That Should Teach Him Not To Dive Next Time (Video)

    Are you sick of all those soccer players diving around the pitch like the Chinese aquatics team?  Ever wonder if there was something we could do in order to stop them?  Well thanks to this Greek player, we may finally have an answer. Just check out his reaction once he receives his second yellow card […]

    That’s An Odd Looking Dive (GIF)

    I’m not sure what to be more amazed about:  The fact that this guy actually believed the diving board would support his fat ass properly, or the giant splash that was still created even though he simply spilled over into the pool.  I can’t help but believe that if this GIF had been a few […]

    Kayak Diving (GIF)

    Perhaps this kid is practicing for a trip off the edge of Niagara Falls.  Or maybe he was just bored.  Whatever the case may be, I think he has just helped us add to our list of hybrid sports.  It may not be quite as extreme as some other others we have seen in the […]

    Which Dive Was Better? (GIF)

    Sure, professional wrestlers may be good at faking, but they may have finally met their match.  After all, when it comes to taking a dive, soccer players are second to none.  Here is just another piece of evidence. After seeing an opponent hit the deck like he had just been shot, this player decided to […]

    Female Diver Smashes Face against Diving Board (Video)

    We’ll call this dive the single somersault face plant.  Its degree of difficulty is quite high, but I think it is fair to say that this young female nailed it, literally! Diving board faceplants have to be one of the most frightening sports catastrophes.  Think about it.  You are about to dive into a deep […]
