  • Brazilian Keeper Scores, Tears ACL Celebrating (Video)

    Brazilian Keeper Scores, Tears ACL Celebrating (Video)

    If I ever coached my own soccer team, I would be sure to implement the following rule: Goalies are banned from partaking in any sort of celebration.  No matter what the occasion, whether they have just made a save on a penalty shot, scored a goal, or won a championship, they are prohibited from engaging […]

    In Your Face (GIF)

    A hug is supposed to be one of the most loving, caring acts two humans can take part in.  It can bring someone joy in the darkest of times, and provide comfort to those in need.  However, a hug is not always administered in such a warm manner.  Sometimes that hug can turn into a […]

  • Ronaldinho Shows He Can Score From Behind The Net (Video)

    Ronaldinho Shows He Can Score From Behind The Net (Video)

    If the sport of soccer-golf ever existed, I’m sure Ronaldinho would be among the best at it.  Just check out the way he lofts these soccer balls into the air from behind the net, putting just the right amount of backspin on each shot in order to get the ball to kick back across the […]

  • Hilarious Stretcher FAIL! (Video)

    Hilarious Stretcher FAIL! (Video)

    If this guy can’t lift a stretcher, how did he ever get this job?  Did he lie on his application form?  Or was the ability to carry an individual on a stretcher not part of the requirements for a job that asks you to do just that? Whatever the case may be here, this poor […]

    Very Sneaky (GIF)

    Being the last line of defense, goalies are often so fixated on what is going on in front of them that they forget to remain aware of what is happening behind them.  That rarely ends up costing them, but in this case it clearly did. Some may call this tactic smart or sneaky.  Others would […]

  • Double Celebration FAIL! (GIF)

    Double Celebration FAIL! (GIF)

    Failed celebrations are nothing new to the world of sports.  We have seen plenty of them before, whether it was Nate Robinson going up and over Paul Pierce before landing on his neck, or Zlatan Ibrahimovic hyper-extending his elbow during a fist-pump. However, it isn’t often that we bear witness to the incredibly embarrassing double […]

  • The Worst Miss Ever Is Now In GIF Form

    The Worst Miss Ever Is Now In GIF Form

    Every time I watch this clip I feel like maybe just once Qatar’s Fahad Khalfan will manage to aim the ball just a little further to the left and avoid being foiled by that dreadful goal post.  Unfortunately, I have already watched this play over and over hundreds of times and that has yet to […]

  • Man Playing Xbox Kinect Kicks Cat Across The Room (Video)

    Man Playing Xbox Kinect Kicks Cat Across The Room (Video)

    My first thought was that this guy was playing some sort of soccer game, but those open-handed slaps would suggest otherwise.  Unless, of course, he was playing against Luis Fabiano or Diogo. And if he was in fact playing a soccer game on his Xbox Kinect, I’d say it looks like he booted home a […]

  • Kick To The Face Of Nicolas Burdisso Highlights Rome Derby (Video)

    Kick To The Face Of Nicolas Burdisso Highlights Rome Derby (Video)

    Nothing says inner-city rivalry quite like a kick to the face.  It is therefore only appropriate that Wednesday’s Coppa Italia Round of 16 match between Lazio and AS Roma was marred by a brutal head-high challenge from Radu that struck the face of Nicolas Burdisso. A closer look at the incident shows that the Roma […]

    We already brought you one incredible goal from the world of sports today.  That one came via the Chicago Blackhawks’ Dave Bolland.  Now we bring you another, courtesy of the beautiful game of soccer and one of the sport’s greatest stars, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This shot by the AC Milan striker was impressive in its own […]

    Picture Of The Day: These Ronaldinho Masks Are Creepy

    If you thought the sight of a giant gate collapsing on several security and police officers was the most frightening thing witnessed during Ronaldinho’s introduction to the Flamengo FC fans, think again.  While that scene may have been terrifying for a moment (until you realized no one was injured during the incident), one look at […]

    Lara Alvarez Is Spain’s Latest Soccer Treat (Pics/Video)

    Sara Carbonero is not the only smoking hot soccer reporter that Spain has to offer.  And while it may be tough to dethrone Sara as “The Sexiest Sports Reporter in the World,” according to FHM, her biggest threat to that title may come from within her own country. Meet Lara Alvarez.  Much like Carbonero, Alvarez […]

    Flamengo Fans Bust Through Wall To Welcome Ronaldinho (Video)

    You think the Flamengo fans in Rio de Janeiro are excited to see Ronaldinho return home to play for their Brazilian club team?  If you are having trouble answering that question, perhaps the following clip will help. Approximately 20,000 fans showed up to the Flamengo’s training stadium to welcome the 30-year-old superstar.  These fans have […]

    Pants On The Ground: Referee Edition (GIF)

    Earlier in the week we mentioned that engaging in physical contact with a referee is probably not the best way to let him know you disagree with a call.  So what is the best way to illustrate your displeasure with the officials?  Perhaps a little pants on the ground will do the trick. Vasco da […]
