Top 5 Wackiest/Zaniest Moments From Bayern Munich’s 2-1 Champions League Victory Over The-Other-German-Team Borussia Dortmund
Go Furher? Wow, Ford, going with the Lenny Bruce “offend everybody” advertising approach, eh? More weird stuff from today’s all-German final after the jump. (Hint: balls may or may not be kicked)
OH MY GOD WE’RE GONNA DIE: Padres SS Everth Cabrera Flings Bat Into Own Dugout And Teammate Chris Denorfia Flips Out
Usually, they call the guy who bats behind you “protection.” Ya, protection for the guys in the dugout because he acts as a buffer zone for the errant baseball bats Everth Cabrera releases at his own teammates. Gifs of the event after the jump.
The Clippers had a good night last night. Like, really good. Like, “blowing out the Lakers 125-101, further pushing the Lakers’ season off a cliff and elevating the Clippers to West title contender status” good. So good, in fact, that they can look back and laugh off DeAndre Jordan recording one of the worst free throw attempts of this NBA season. And part of the reason for that is because aside from that, Jordan was pretty damn good.
Nets forward Mirza Teletovic is a better basketball player than I am. I understand this. For one brief, (in)glorious stretch last night, though, he was not better than me. Or you. Or anyone else who has picked up a basketball.
Before last night, it’s possible the name “Roscoe Smith” meant nothing at all to Hornets guard Xavier Henry. And why should it have? Smith is redshirting at UNLV, Henry’s in the NBA. Henry’s college career ended before Smith’s began. Henry’s from Oklahoma City, Smith’s from Baltimore. So what do these two have in common? Well, if you’ve ever heard Smith’s name at all, there’s a good chance it’s because of this. And last night against the Sixers, Henry did this. They are forever linked. [Ball Don't Lie]
The Jets Are Sad Sacks, So Watch A Video Of All The Bad Things They Did In 2012 Set To The “Benny Hill” Theme
There are two weeks left in the season, yet the New York Jets still did enough awful things on the football field in 2012 to fill out an almost four-minute lowlight reel. You can read the tabloids, watch the press conferences and follow the personalities on the Tweeters, but you aren’t going to get a more succinct answer to, “What made the Jets so absolutely miserable in 2012?” than this.
We mentioned this in the morning roundup before, but it’s worth repeating: last night’s Bengals-Eagles game was ugly. The Bengals won by three touchdowns and the main takeaway was that they didn’t look good enough to be a playoff team. And it wasn’t just the players having trouble.
Every so often we update an infrequently-recurring series here at SportsGrid, “How To Be The Coolest Kid In School.” Previous installments have included middle school dunkers, foot-basket-trick-ballers, and halfcourt-heaving third graders. Unfortunately, though, most of the time the awesome stuff that would make you the coolest kid in school doesn’t happen. This is one of those times. [The Big Lead]
Today has been a special day for those “regular” refs we thought we really wanted back after being subjected to the incompetence of the replacement referees. If today is any indication, there may not have been any difference between them.
Not much stopped the Ravens last night. They beat the Bengals 44-13, making their division foes look rather unlike the playoff team they were a year ago. Thy dominated on both sides of the ball. One person, though, got the better of them.
