    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]

    Fake Headbutt Double KO (GIF)

    We all know that soccer players can be whiny diving sissies at times, and the same can be said about their coaches as well.  This clip says it all, as a player and the opposing coach exchange a few words before butting heads.  At that point, it is a race to see who can hit […]

  • Ryan Guy Performs A Flip Throw-In

    Ryan Guy Performs A Flip Throw-In

    When the Airtricity League XI took on Manchester United in Dublin on Wednesday, they found themselves on the receiving end of many highlight reel plays during a 7-1 loss.  However, they did manage to provide us with the game’s most spectacular play, thanks to Ryan Guy and his execution of the flip throw-in. It is […]

  • Hey Japan – Get Your Own Goal Celebration

    Hey Japan – Get Your Own Goal Celebration

    We recently showed you the awesome goal celebration by the players of Stjarnan in Iceland. That performance was so creative, and it made its way around the world in no time at all. Here is a decent reproduction of the celebration, done by some cat named Tomoaki Makino of J-League side Sanfrecce Hiroshima and of […]

  • Another Great Iceland Soccer Celebration (Video)

    Another Great Iceland Soccer Celebration (Video)

    The players of Stjarnan in Iceland are back at it with another soccer celebration that will make the sport’s haters consider officially crossing over and make the apologists weep for joy while holding one another ever so gently. But any soft moment that soccer usually elicits, this Scarface-ish goal celebration by the team from Iceland […]

  • Boca Juniors Goalkeeper Snaps Opposing Player’s Leg

    Boca Juniors Goalkeeper Snaps Opposing Player’s Leg

    We should warn you now.  The video below is not for the faint of heart. Broken legs and not exactly a rarity in the game of soccer, and while we have even seen goalkeepers suffer from such painful injuries, it is not often that they are the ones dishing them out.  But that all changed […]

  • Andriy Shevchenko Is A World Class Pickpocket (Video)

    Andriy Shevchenko Is A World Class Pickpocket (Video)

    Years ago most soccer fans would have defined Andriy Shevchenko as a world class footballer, and while that label has since passed him by, he still possesses some world class skills in other areas. With that being said, allow us to offer you this one piece of advice.  When Shevchenko is around, watch your pockets, […]

  • Norwegian Fan Invades Pitch, Hugs Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Video)

    Norwegian Fan Invades Pitch, Hugs Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Video)

    I think it is fair to say that this guy took the idea of a “friendly” to a whole new level.  FC Barcelona was in Olso, Norway for a friendly against Valerenga, and with the Catalans up 4-2 in extra time, it was the perfect moment for a love-struck fan to make his move. Swedish […]

  • Italian And French Football Clubs Brawl During Not-So-Friendly Friendly

    Italian And French Football Clubs Brawl During Not-So-Friendly Friendly

    The Italians and the French have never seemed to enjoy each others’ company on the soccer pitch, and that was evident once again when Sardinia’s Cagliari took on Corsica’s Bastia in what was supposed to be a friendly match on Wednesday.  Instead, it turned out to be anything but friendly as the teams from the […]

  • Male Streaker With Fake Boobs Invades Soccer Pitch

    Male Streaker With Fake Boobs Invades Soccer Pitch

    Spectacular goals and bone crushing hits are great and all, but there may be nothing better in sports than the sight of a female fan flashing her breasts.  After all, sex and sports are two of the most enjoyable activities for many men, so putting the two together is almost like creating heaven on earth. […]

  • Crazy Chinese Fan Goes Karate on Ref (Video)

    Crazy Chinese Fan Goes Karate on Ref (Video)

    I love seeing clips like this because it just goes to show that North Americans aren’t the only ones who will take to the field — or the pitch in this situation — to express their anger toward a player or ref. Here is some really pissed off Chinese fan who has had enough of […]

  • Iceland Soccer Celebration FTW (GIF)

    Iceland Soccer Celebration FTW (GIF)

    For all the diving and inexplicable whistles that occur in soccer, which makes it almost unwatchable, the things soccer allow that are so right are the celebrations after goals. In American football, excessive celebration is frowned upon, penalized, and fined. It’s stupid and anticlimactic. Players work hard to score and they should be able to […]

    Nice Tackle! (GIF)

    Now this is how you deal with a field trespasser!  You take him down fast and hard.  No ifs, ands, or buts. Perhaps the security personnel at Camden Yards could learn something from the men at Fenway Park, who were quick to the scene when this fan rushed onto the field during an exhibition soccer […]
