    15 Most Famous (or Infamous) Cases of Streaking in Sports

    England has contributed a lot to the world of sports. They’ve given us soccer. They’ve given us rugby. They’ve given us (indirectly) American football. And they’ve given us tennis—or at least the modern version. Oh, right, and they’ve given us sports streaking. Yes, while streaking in North America was pretty much confined to college campuses […]

    20 Soccer Celebration GIFs

    You can’t blame soccer players for going big with their goal celebrations. There are so few opportunities, you just have to make the most out of each and every one. And of course, the same applies to fans. Given that there’s a 40% chance you’ll see a 0-0 draw any time you fork over your […]

    Usain Bolt Almost Runs Over Flower Girl at Track Meet in Norway (Video)

    I think maybe the folks in charge of the Samsung IAAF Diamond League and the organizers of the Bislett Games in Oslo, Norway, might want to review their policies regulating who is allowed on the track after a race before their next meet. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won the 100-meter race yesterday in a solid […]

    22 Fantastic Ping Pong GIFs

    Sometimes it’s called table tennis; other times it’s called ping pong. The difference? Well, if you play it in a gym in shorts and sneakers with your arms flailing all over the place, it’s table tennis. If you play it in your basement and the paddle has orange fingerprints on it from the Doritos you […]

    15 Comical Umpire Punch-Outs (Videos)

    Umpires aren’t supposed to grab headlines. When they do—like when Armando Galarrago was robbed of a perfect game, or when Brett Lawrie blew a gasket a few weeks back—it’s usually because they suck. However, every once in a while, an umpire grabs our attention because he is awesome. And usually, “being awesome” for an umpire […]

    21 Epic Sports Nut Shots (GIFs)

    There are a lot of ways to get injured playing sports. And sometimes, the injuries can be pretty weird. But the mother of all sports injuries is the dreaded nut shot. It usually doesn’t leave any permanent damage—well, not physical damage; psychological maybe—but in terms of shear pain there is no comparison. Personally, I’d rather tear […]

    Check Out This Little League Umpire’s Awesome Punchout Move (Video)

    Umpires have a tough, thankless job. They have to stay completely focused on every pitch while wearing 30 pounds of cumbersome padding, dealing with hecklers in the stands (and dugouts), and getting hit in the nuts by wild pitches. When they do their job poorly, they hear about it from everyone. But when they do […]

    22 Weird (And Funny) Baseball GIFs

    I love baseball, but I’ll be the first to admit that, when you think about it, it’s a pretty weird game. For starters, there’s no clock, so the game moves about as fast as the pitcher and manager want it to. Which can be pretty slow. And, unlike most pro sports, but very much like […]

    21 Hilarious Soccer Dives (GIFs)

    I love soccer. Always have. That’s why I wish the old European dudes who oversee the world’s most popular sport would make it easier for me to defend “the beautiful game” to the haters here in North America by coming down hard on dives. You see, it’s hard to make a case for the game […]

    Here’s The Remix Of Jason Spezza Laughing (Video)

    Jason Spezza of the Ottawa Senators may have some of the best hands and one of the best shots in the NHL, but he also has one of the league’s worst laughs. Despite recording three goals in his last two games and helping the Sens reach a deciding seventh-game against the first-place New York Rangers […]

    25 Sweet Skateboarding GIFs

    Skateboarding is an interesting sport. It’s really fun to watch if the person doing it is really, really good. Like, X Games good. But it’s super boring to watch if they’re not that good. (About as exciting to watch as an old rerun of Murder, She Wrote.) There is, however, an exception to this general […]

    21 Hilarious MMA (GIFs)

    Usually, MMA is a pretty serious sport. After all, you can’t fool around too much when guys are dishing out muay thai roundhouses and spinning heel kicks. But every once in a while, things don’t go as planned. And then MMA can be pretty hilarious. To show you what I’m talking about—and to brighten the […]

    This Cleveland Browns Fan May Be On To Something (Video)

    The fact that the Cleveland Browns suck certainly isn’t much of a secret throughout the sports world.  They haven’t made the playoffs since 2002 and their last division title came back in 1989.  They have become the epitome of futility in the NFL and this season-ticket holder is not going to stand for it any […]
