  • Umpire Jeff Kellogg Tackled A Streaker (Video)

    Umpire Jeff Kellogg Tackled A Streaker (Video)

    It appears as though security guards at the home stadiums of a few AL East teams were given Friday night off, as they certainly didn’t appear to be too concerned with keeping the fans at Yankee Stadium and Camden Yards in check.  And while that resulted in a rather entertaining two-round fight between female fans […]

  • Pitch Invader Gets Jacked Up By A Rugby Player (Video)

    Pitch Invader Gets Jacked Up By A Rugby Player (Video)

    Most television networks choose not to show viewers footage of pitch invaders running onto the field of play because they feel that doing so would only encourage others to partake in similar activities.  While that may be true in certain instances, something tells me that anyone who saw Olly Barkley dunk a pitch invader during […]

    35 Awesome Football Tackle GIFs

    When watching a football game (whether in the comfort of your own home or at your favorite sports bar) there are two types of plays that always elicit excited, nacho-spilling outbursts. The first is an incredible, physics-defying catch that no one saw coming. The second is a bone-crushing hit that knocks a guy out of […]

    Packers’ Brad Jones Tackles A Field Intruder (Video)

    I’m not sure how I missed this one, but it took place during Sunday’s week 17 match-up between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. With the Packers’ defense getting set to take the field, one brave fan in the stands was looking to get in on the action, so he […]

  • West Virginia’s Darwin Cook Tackles The Orange Bowl Mascot (Video)

    West Virginia’s Darwin Cook Tackles The Orange Bowl Mascot (Video)

    Following a 99-yard spring to the end zone, most football players would be too gassed to do anything besides retreat to the bench and suck on an oxygen mask… Not West Virginia safety Darwin Cook! Following his game-changing 99-yard fumble return for a touchdown late in the second quarter of last night’s Orange Bowl, Cook […]

    Jason Witten Tackles A Cheerleader (Video)

    Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is probably most thankful for his family, friends, health, and being able to play the sport that he loves most each weekend.  He must also be awfully thankful for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders who cheer him on every Sunday. Witten took the opportunity to show his thanks during the […]

    Huge NRL Hit Proves Size Doesn’t Matter (Video)

    When Lance Hohaia of the New Zealand Warriors decided to step up and take on Petero Civoniceva of the Penrith Panthers during a National Rugby League match, it was clearly a battle of David vs. Goliath.  And as we all know by now, David always seems to come out on top of these match-ups. This […]

    I Can’t Believe She Got Up After That Tackle! (Video)

    Professional soccer players sure could learn a thing or two from the young girl in the following video, who went somersaulting through the air following a hard tackle, but got right back to her feet seconds later. Had this challenge taken place during a Serie A or Premier League match, there is no telling how […]

    Picture Of The Day: Hanging On By An Underwear Thread

    I have both seen and heard of a shoe-string tackle before, but never have I witnessed an underwear-elastic tackle before in my life, until now. The player making the tackle can hang on all he wants, but it doesn’t appear as though an atomic wedgie is going to stop this Aussie rugby player from recording […]

  • This Kung-Fu Kick To The Face Is The Worst Soccer Challenge Ever

    This Kung-Fu Kick To The Face Is The Worst Soccer Challenge Ever

    As far as dangerous soccer tackles go, this without a doubt is among the worst the sport has to offer. It took place during a Belgian League game between Standard Liege and Racing Genk on Tuesday.  With the Belgian League title on the line, Racing Genk only needed a tie to hold off Standard Liege […]

    Real Salt Lake’s Javier Morales Suffers Nasty Leg Break (Video)

    Less money, decreased popularity and the level of competition are just a few things preventing many of the world’s elite soccer players from taking the trip across the Atlantic to play in the MLS.  I am going to assume that the sudden rise in gruesome leg-breaking tackles isn’t helping the North American soccer league’s cause […]
