They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, buy and this still from a video shot during a youth baseball game in Cooper City, Florida this week speaks volumes about what is wrong with youth sports these days. Not a lot of details yet, but it’s obvious from the video (below) that the adults involved couldn’t control their tempers and started brawling like a bunch of drunken sailors in front…
Most sports are played on flat, even surfaces, to avoid injuries and well, to make the game fair. But not this soccer pitch. This is a game just waiting for a broken leg or concussion, or worse.
UPDATE: Apparently Pine Forest goalkeeper Cassie Sturtz has a history of taking out strikers with flying tackles. Sturtz used a similarly aggressive move during the 2014-15 season during a match against fellow North Carolina foe Grays Creek. Watch this video and decide if a two game suspension now seems like enough of a punishment. EARLIER: I’m no expert, but seems like if you did something like this to a stranger…
What do you expect from tennis fans? They’re the worst, aren’t they? The real question is, who was the real instigator here: the young guy or the older couple yelling at him?
The Essendon Bombers of the Australian Football League will likely not be playing next season. That’s because pretty much the entire team–including 22 players no longer with the squad–were found guilty on doping charges after they lost an appeal this week. Here’s more from The Guardian: Thirty-four past and present players of Essendon football club have been found guilty of doping charges after an appeal from the World Anti-Doping Agency’s…
I don’t know much about rugby, but this looks like a field goal kick in American football. The ball does cross between the uprights, but then, well, you’ll have to watch the video to see what happens.
It’s a quick video, buy but a good one, as the coach appears to come from the left and just after the referee calls a charging foul, he rams his head into the guys face. Of course, he will argue that it wasn’t intentional, but watch the video and decide for yourself.
It’s not just that the guy poured a beer (a perfectly good beer, mind you!) on this basketball player as he lay on the court, he then pretended like nothing happened. The announcers didn’t even seem to notice it until they saw the replay. G’Day mate, my ass!
The worst of ALL TIME? That’s saying a lot, but take a look and see if you don’t agree this guy failed miserably.
Just when you think you’ve got something figured out (like life) you quickly realize that you don’t. That brief moment of clarity can quickly be replaced by even more confusion because you THOUGHT the mystery was solved. Such, I believe, is the nature of fantasy football for 2015 . . . and maybe beyond. Nothing, it seems, is an iron bet anymore. Let’s start with Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning….
This video was produced more than four years ago, capsule but after the Brown’s loss this week to the Ravens on a last second blocked field goal that was returned for a TD, it seems as appropriate as ever. Be sure to watch it all the way to the end!
