    These Joakim Noah Animations Are All Kinds of Amazing (GIFs)

    Normally when I do a post like this, I try to introduce the video or GIF by saying something about the subject matter. The idea is to provide some sort of context so the video or GIF seems relevant to current events. In this case, however, there really is nothing to say to set up […]

    You know who loves a good surprise military homecoming? Everybody. That’s why professional sports teams help arrange them so often. If a team’s only goal was to do something nice for a military family that makes a sacrifice for their country, they would just arrange the reunions at home, or maybe at the airport. But […]

    Flopping Youth Basketball Player Obviously Watches Too Much NBA (Video)

    Earlier today we showed you a mix tape featuring the prodigious ball-handling of 8th grade basketball player Jordan McCabe.

    Sacramento Kings Fan Wins a Kia by Sinking Half-Court Shot (Video)

In each of the past four seasons the team has won between 22 and 28 games, and this year, with four games remaining, they sit at 27. Now, this kind of consistency can take a toll […]
