    Tigers’ Torii Hunter Vanishes Behind Wall During Attempted Catch (GIF)

    Next time you hear someone say the magic is gone from professional baseball, direct them to this GIF, which shows the Detroit Tigers’ Torii Hunter attempting to catch Red Sox David Ortiz‘s grand slam home run. As you can see, Hunter made a slight miscalculation as he approached the bullpen, and ended up doing a […]

  • Steelers Troy Polamalu Lights Up Jets’ Stephen Hill (GIFs)

    Steelers Troy Polamalu Lights Up Jets’ Stephen Hill (GIFs)

    At Sunday’s game between the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was at least one memorable hit by the Steelers’ star safety Troy Polamalu. Of course, by “memorable,” I actually mean “extremely painful.” The unlucky victim of the mid-air smash was the Jets’ Stephen Hill, who reportedly walked away from the collision in […]

  • Tom Brady Left Hanging By Julian Edelman (GIF)

    Tom Brady Left Hanging By Julian Edelman (GIF)

    Today I’ve written about broken legs, torn Achilles tendons, and rugby stiff arms, but the most painful image of all is probably this one.  It features Tom Brady trying to get a measly high-five from teammate Julian Edelman and being left hanging. The animated GIF of the incident, seen below, is an emotional roller coaster, as […]

  • Check Out This Brutal Rugby Stiff Arm (GIF & Video)

    Check Out This Brutal Rugby Stiff Arm (GIF & Video)

    Ah, the stiff arm. It’s a classic move of American football, but it is often employed to a much more brutal effect in rugby (just like everything else in rugby). Here’s a great example of the form, taken from a recent game. The stiff arm comes courtesy of rugby player Sean O’Brien, who flattens an […]

    22 Awesome Baseball Celebration GIFs

    Well, it’s that time of year again—the time when grown men in stretchy pajama pants gather together in a room with walls covered in plastic to waste tons of perfectly good alcohol. I am referring, of course, to the MLB postseason and the spraying of bubbly liquids in the locker room after a team has (a) […]

  • Would-Be NCAA Videbomber Runs Into Wall (GIF)

    Would-Be NCAA Videbomber Runs Into Wall (GIF)

    The act of photobombing (and especially its full-motion equivalent, videobombing) requires crack patience, timing and attentiveness to pull off properly. You definitely don’t want to go off all half-cocked like the kid in the GIF below. What’s especially tragic is that this kid had a perfect set-up for a next-level videobomb: A low-traffic area in […]

  • Ohio State Fan Gets Knocked Out of His Seat (GIF)

    Ohio State Fan Gets Knocked Out of His Seat (GIF)

    You’ve got your $50 camping chair set up on the sidelines at a college football game. You’ve got your camera (I think that’s what it is), and you’re all set to enjoy Wisconsin going up against Ohio State. Then, all of a sudden, BOOM!  You get clobbered as if you were a player in the […]

  • Drunk Washington State Fan Really Likes Popcorn (GIF)

    Drunk Washington State Fan Really Likes Popcorn (GIF)

    One advantage that horses have over humans is the widespread use of the feedbag—where a bag of oats is fastened directly to the horse’s nose, allowing it to eat from the bag without any action other than what it takes to chew. So it’s kind of inspirational that an enterprising Washington State fan stumbled upon […]

    27 Animated GIFs of Kids Playing Sports

    Everyone knows that children are the future (unless they come between you and a home run ball). But guess what? It’s not the future yet, and until it is we are in charge of everything, including the Internet. So if we want to look at a bunch of animated GIFs of children playing sports—and mostly failing—then […]

  • Bengals’ Vontaze Burfict Hits Packers’ Ryan Taylor Below The Belt (GIF)

    Bengals’ Vontaze Burfict Hits Packers’ Ryan Taylor Below The Belt (GIF)

    Another story for the “unsportsmanlike conduct” file comes from yesterday’s game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Green Bay Packers. The aggrieved party in this case was the Packers’ Ryan Taylor, who got hit with a low blow from the Bengals’ Vontaze Burfict. Fortunately for lovers of frontier justice, Taylor pushed back, and hard. As […]

  • Detroit Lions’ Joseph Fauria Celebrates Touchdown With ‘N Sync Dance (GIF)

    Detroit Lions’ Joseph Fauria Celebrates Touchdown With ‘N Sync Dance (GIF)

    It’s doubtful that anyone would claim that we’re currently living in a golden age of touchdown celebration dances (what with all of the NFL’s anti-celebration rules), but some brave individuals have continued to carry the torch for the dying art form. Take, for example, Joseph Fauria of the Detroit Lions, who celebrated a TD during yesterday’s […]

    21 Awesome Neymar GIFs

    Serious soccer fans have been following the career of Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior—or simply Neymar for short—for several years now. The 21-year-old Brazilian has finished in the top 10 in voting for FIFA’s player of the year award, and in 2011 he won the Puskás Award for best goal of the year. However, all […]

    The 9 Dirtiest Plays of Ndamukong Suh (GIFs)

    Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is only in his fourth NFL season, but he’s already acquired a reputation as the dirtiest player in the league. Officially, of course, this is a bad thing. But  Lions fans who like the idea of actually winning football games probably don’t mind all that much. They probably echo […]

  • Fletcher Cox Isn’t Going to Help Up Philip Rivers (GIF)

    Fletcher Cox Isn’t Going to Help Up Philip Rivers (GIF)

    The Philadelphia Eagles‘ Fletcher Cox just wasn’t feeling very gentlemanly during yesterday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. At least, that would appear to be the case judging by the GIF below, which shows Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers trying to get a helping hand from Cox, and being soundly denied. It’s a good demonstration of […]

    30 NFL Fan GIFs

    In Major League Baseball they play 162 games. As a result the fans really have to pace themselves. They don’t want to go bonkers in first few weeks of the season and burn out before their team even gets started. However, in the NFL there are only 16 games and only eight of them are played […]
