    Real Sociedad Scores Brutal Own Goal vs. Barcelona (Video)

    Barcelona probably didn’t need any help during the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final match-up against Real Sociedad, but they received some anyway.

    Lightning Almost Choke Away a Win With This Embarrassing Own Goal (Video)

    Last night, the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the  Blackhawks 6-5 in overtime—in Chicago—moving to a very solid 6-3-0 on the year. For a team that missed the playoffs last year, you would think this makes them very happy. And ultimately it probably does.

    Female Soccer Player Scores Game-Winning Goal With Her Face (Video)

    What a bummer! This girl just scored the go-ahead, and eventual game-winning goal for her team, but she can’t even enjoy it because her lovely face probably isn’t so lovely anymore thanks to the opposing keeper’s poor aim.
