    Had Nigerian defender Festus Baise been a member of Hong Kong club team Citizen AA, this could have been one of the greatest soccer goals of the year.  But because he plays for Sun Hei SC, this could end up being one of the best own-goals…ever!

    Patrick Kane Scores An Incredible Shootout Goal (Video)

    Patrick Kane is accustomed to using his blazing speed and accurate shot in order to score goals, but he didn’t need either to beat Minnesota Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom during last night’s shootout.  Moving towards the goal at a snail’s pace, all that the Blackhawks’ All-Star forward needed was some wicked stickhandling in order to […]

    New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov was guilty of letting his emotions get the better of him following a short-handed goal last night, and the Tampa Bay players were guilty of much of the same following Anisimov’s ensuing celebration.

    Heading into the 2010 World Cup of soccer in South Africa, there were plenty of expectations surrounding Mexican striker Carlos Vela.  At only 20 years of age, Vela struggled to live up to those expectations at the time, as an injury forced him out of Mexico’s second game against France, and it would keep him […]

    Seventy-five minutes into Sunday’s game against Lecce, AS Roma’s Pablo Osvaldo received a cross from the right hand side and delivered a brilliant overhead kicked that reminded us all why we often call soccer the “Beautiful Game.”  Seconds after the goal, in the midst of his celebration, Osvaldo was reminded that at times the “Beautiful […]

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ fourth goal during last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning was a special one for Joe Colborne, as it was the first goal of his NHL career.  It was also a special goal for anyone else watching it, thanks to some nifty moves from Colborne’s linemate, Matt Frattin.

    Ouch! This Goal Hurts! (Video)

    Watching the opposition score a goal against your team hurts.  Perhaps the only thing that hurts more is watching the opposition blast consecutive shots off the face of you and your teammate before watching them score as you wince in pain. I couldn’t tell you exactly how that feels, but these two ladies could, as […]

    Could this be an early “Goal of the Year” candidate?  Sorry Jamie Benn, but it has my vote!

    The skill level and ease that Luis Suarez shows as he receives a pass along the wing, slots it through a defender’s legs and curls it into the back of the net is spectacular, but perhaps the most amazing thing about the Liverpool striker’s goal during yesterday’s Carling Cup game against Stoke City is the […]
