Dominican Baseball Child Briefly Becomes Superman Dominican Baseball Child Briefly Becomes Superman

Sure, proper sliding technique is all about getting low and trying to beat the tag, but, counterpoint: pretending to be an airplane—like the following baseball child did this weekend in Villa Altagracia, Dominican Republic—is infinitely cooler.

Super Nice Soccer Guy Rewarded For His Compassion With Easiest Goal Of His Life Super Nice Soccer Guy Rewarded For His Compassion With Easiest Goal Of His Life

The next time someone says nice guys finish last, show them this video of Maccabi Petah Tikva striker Habib Habibou tending to a hurt teammate and being gifted with a tap-in because of it, and you will have irrefutably proven the power of good karma:

Nick Chubb Ran All Over The Falcons For The Longest Play From Scrimmage Of The Season Nick Chubb Ran All Over The Falcons For The Longest Play From Scrimmage Of The Season

The Browns are pummeling the Falcons defense this afternoon, and one of the main culprits has been Cleveland running back Nick Chubb. Having already caught a receiving touchdown earlier, Chubb added to the damage by running through a hole, making one man miss, and ripping off a 92-yard rush to the end zone in the…

Knockouts Do Not Get More Stunning Or Dramatic Than Yair Rodriguez's Last-Second Blind Elbow  Knockouts Do Not Get More Stunning Or Dramatic Than Yair Rodriguez's Last-Second Blind Elbow 

Twenty-four minutes and 58 seconds into his main event fight against Chan Sung “The Korean Zombie” Jung, Yair Rodriguez was losing. If the fight’s final two seconds had elapsed normally, Jung would have probably gotten the decision and re-announced himself to the UFC’s featherweight division by winning a ludicrously…

Even The Cameraman Swooned Over Vince Williams's Pick-Six

The Steelers are enjoying an explosive start to their game against the Panthers tonight, and after a 30-second sequence that saw the teams score a combined 21 points, the excitement proved to be too much for one Fox cameraperson.

Zion Williamson Lived Up To The Hype Zion Williamson Lived Up To The Hype

Last night, after what feels like decades of consuming Zion Williamson’s high school highlights and watching a few instances of him beating up on hapless Canadians, we finally got to see what the freshman can do against real D-I competition. What he can do is really fuck some people up.

Was Anyone Even Trying To Stop Neal Pionk On This Goal?

This goal looks straight out of a movie. In a 4-on-4 with under three minutes to go in a tie game, a little-known defenseman—in this case New York Rangers kid Neal Pionk—takes the puck from behind his own net and just ... continues with it until he scores the game-winner. It shouldn’t be possible in a legit NHL game,…

Nothing Can Stop Elias Pettersson Right Now

The hottest teen in the NHL is currently playing for the Vancouver Canucks, and his name is Elias Pettersson. The 19-year-old undersized center out of Sweden is absolutely crushing it at the start of his rookie year in the NHL, and tonight against the Red Wings, he opened the scoring with a murderous slap shot past…

Goddamn, Vince Carter's Still Got It

Without context, this slam from Vince Carter is nothing too special. The highlight itself likely wouldn’t even crack the Top 100 of VC’s 725 career throwdowns. But the fact that he’s still doing this after two decades of NBA basketball is something incredible to behold.

Kyrie Irving Sees Your Shammgod, Raises One Bonkers Off-The-Knee Inside-Out Dribble Kyrie Irving Sees Your Shammgod, Raises One Bonkers Off-The-Knee Inside-Out Dribble

I am guessing we will not see Omri Casspi attempt this anytime soon. In fact, Kyrie Irving might be the only active NBA player with the skill and guts and latitude to pull this out in a tied regular season road game:

Jamal Murray Made Some Celtics Salty By Shamelessly Gunning For 50 Jamal Murray Made Some Celtics Salty By Shamelessly Gunning For 50

Celtics-Nuggets was very, very fun. Kyrie Irving was cooking. Jamal Murray was cooking. No one else really had it, and so the game became a cook-off between two sublime shot-makers. Murray got the better of the matchup, exploding for a career-high 48 points, including 19 in the fourth quarter, to carry the Nuggets to…

Giannis Antetokounmpo Boomed The Kings To Hell Giannis Antetokounmpo Boomed The Kings To Hell

Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is LeBron now, put up what might have been his most LeBron-ish box score of the season during last night’s 144-109 win over the Kings. The big ol’ freak was plus-39 in his 30 minutes on the court, and he finished with a 25-12-11 triple-double on 8-of-11 shooting. Sparkling statistics are…

This Malcolm Brown Touchdown Catch Is An Unreal Feat Of Body Control

This twinkle-toed touchdown reception by Rams running back Malcolm Brown, in which he somehow manages to dodge two onrushing Saints defenders and keep his feet inbounds despite having to do it all with just a sliver of grass between him, them, and the sideline, is just incredible.

High School Football Team Redeems Itself With A Crazy Comeback One Year After Late-Game Collapse

Last year, Minnesota high school St. Michael-Albertville made news when they gagged up a huge late lead by letting Maple Grove score 19 points in the game’s final 59 seconds. On Friday, STMA found redemption by pulling off a wild fourth-quarter comeback of their own that featured three consecutive onside kick…

Roger Federer Put This Serve Directly Into The Garbage Can

Roger Federer has cut an unusual path into the fourth round at Paris: he played just two sets of tennis to get there. He had a first-round bye, then second-round opponent Milos Raonic withdrew from the tournament, and then he defeated the sleepy pirate Fabio Fognini, 6-4, 6-3. So all of a sudden, a slightly creaky,…

Bol Bol Is Almost Here

Bol Bol is not your average 7-foot-2 basketball player. He is not awkward, not stiff, not gangly. He does not succeed solely on his height—though it certainly helps. He is mobile, and he is athletic, and he is offensive-minded. Physically, his body can’t help but remind you of his famous father. But a more immediate…

Oh Man, De'Aaron Fox Is So Much Fun Oh Man, De'Aaron Fox Is So Much Fun

De’Aaron Fox spent his Thursday night leading the plucky Kings to a dominant road win in Atlanta. I do not expect you to take that very seriously! There are data points you mark in the The Kings Might Be Good column—a 6–3 record; road wins over the Thunder and Heat; a five-game winning streak; offensive and defensive…

Patrik Laine Came Home And Scored A Hat Trick

Winnipeg Jets wonderkid Patrik Laine has had a bit of a slow start to his third NHL season, earning just five points in his first 12 games and going scoreless in his last five. But a return to his home country of Finland, for a game this afternoon against the Panthers, seems to have jump-started the young sniper.

Spencer Dinwiddie Inspired To Greatness By "Hoodie Kermit" Spencer Dinwiddie Inspired To Greatness By "Hoodie Kermit"

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 13 points after about the three-minute mark of the fourth quarter of Brooklyn’s Wednesday night win over the Pistons, including a four-point play, two clutch game-tying threes, and the eventual overtime game-winner. It was a virtuosic finish for a fun and underrated player:

Christian Pulisic Went Off Today Christian Pulisic Went Off Today

An update on Christian Pulisic, American superstar: he is still extremely good at soccer. Today, in a DFB Pokal win over Union Berlin, he had a goal, an assist, a drawn game-winning penalty, and whatever this shit this move was.
