    With all of the increased technology being applied to cameras these days, sports photos have become that much more interesting, as photographers can now snap dozens of pictures in the blink of an eye, allowing them to capture the strangest, funniest and ugliest facial expressions and movements of the athletes they are focusing on.

    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 […]

    This Last Minute Stand By Beşiktaş JK Is Something To Marvel (Video)

    Three minutes into injury time, Beşiktaş found themselves clinging to a 1-0 lead during their Europa League group stage match against Dynamo Kyiv. A win would move them one point ahead of their opponents for sole position of second place in Group E.   With the final seconds winding down, three-points appeared to be within Beşiktaş’ […]

    Tony Beltran’s Head Saved Real Salt Lake’s Season (Video)

    Real Salt Lake entered the second leg of their Western Conference semi-final against the Seattle Sounders with a 3-0 aggregate lead, but they decided to make things interesting by spotting the Sounders a 2-0 lead in the opening 61 minutes of yesterday’s match at CenturyLink Field.  Their generosity almost came back to haunt them, as […]

    Ryujiro Ueda Scores On A Header From 58-Meters Out (Video)

    If we consider a soccer goal that is kicked in from 40-meters out to be amazing, what words could possible describe a goal that is headed in from 58-meters out? Incredible?  Unbelievable?  Astonishing? I’m not sure any of those words do justice to Ryujiro Ueda’s header from 58-meters out, which bounced over the opposing keeper […]

    Soccer Player Punches Referee In The Face (Video)

    As tough as it may be having to break up a fight between two giants on skates, I still say that the toughest sport to officiate is soccer.  After all, soccer players tend to be loose canons at times, and you never really know what they are going to do.  One second they are rolling […]

    Cristiano Ronaldo Uses Karate Kick To Complete Hat-Trick (Video)

    Real Madrid continued their assault on opposing keepers on Saturday, and once again that assault was led by Cristiano Ronaldo.  The Portuguese forward entered the game with seven goals in his first seven La Liga games this season, and he added to that total with a hat-trick against Malaga, which he capped off with an […]

    Yoav Ziv Gets Red Card For Kicking Shoe At Referee (Video)

    It was clearly no accident when Maccabi Tel Aviv’s Yoav Ziv kicked his shoe at a referee during yesterday’s UEFA Europa League match against Stoke City FC.  With that being said, I would love to hear the explanation offered by Ziv to the head referee before he was issued a straight red card for his […]

    Francois Modesto Pulls Down Opponent’s Shorts (Video)

    When AEK Athens defender Cala decided to stand over a fallen Francois Modesto and yell at him from above, he probably figured he was in a dominant position. Not Quite. Not only was Modesto right where he wanted to be, but the Olympiakos defender also had Cala right where he wanted him, as he proceeded […]

    Here Is A Soccer Goal Celebration To Die For (Video)

    We should point out that no one died when Chivas forward Marco Fabian celebrated his second of three goals during his team’s 5-2 victory over Tecos in Guadalajara, Mexico on Saturday.  Instead, what spectators did witness during the celebration was a mock-execution, as Fabian pointed his finger-gun at the head of teammate Alberto Medina, before […]

    When Group C of the EURO 2012 qualifying stage was formed, many figured it would take a dream run for Estonia to qualify for the Final Tournament.  With one game remaining, that dream appeared to be coming true for the country of 1.3 million, and it was turning into a nightmare for the other group […]

    9 Bikini Sports (Besides Beach Volleyball)

    Beach volleyball is always one of the most popular sports at the Summer Olympics, and the reason is obvious: dudes love hot women in bikinis. The geniuses who run the Lingerie Football League get it. And now there’s also an attempt to bring sexy back to basketball in the form of a Bikini Basketball League—recently […]
