Nate Smith, an 11-year-old from Minnesota, made the shot of the year in hockey — and the season hasn’t even started yet! Nate’s twin brother bought the ticket, but when it came time for the contest he wasn’t around. Nate took his place, which was a good thing. Nate put the three-inch puck through a 3.5-inch hole…and won $50,000! Here’s the CNN report.
What is America’s bitterest college football rivalry? That’s easy.
Auburn-Alabama? Ohio State-Michigan? Mere pillowfights compared to the one I’m thinking of, for no other reason than this: those schools would never, ever consider a scenario where they might not play one another again.
It's August, but why does it seem that getting ready for UTEP football is already a grind?
From rumors that season ticket sales were under 5,000 when the university (finally) kicked off its marketing campaign to the unrest among fans about Mike Price getting an eighth season to lead the Miners, El Paso is slow to come around to the fact of another UTEP football season.
It's like the city had something it didn't want to do later, then napped way too long. Now it's laconic, irritable and has a slight headache.
We don’t know what Third World country this video came from, but it’s safe to say the policeman shown here haven’t mastered the basics of crowd control. Of course, continuing to wail on a fan who ran across a soccer field after you’ve tackled him probably didn’t look too good on the Jumbotron.
A UFC fighter named Dennis Hallman wore a Speedo for a fight against a guy named Brian Ebersole. And Ebersole got a $70,000 bonus for knocking Hallman out! UFC President Dana White called it a “getting-those-horrifying-shorts-off-TV-as-soon-as-possible bonus”. Forget the horrifying shorts, how about what happens if you wrestle in those horrifying shorts…the WORST kind of wardrobe malfunction! WARNING: the image is briefly NSFW!
You have never, ever seen a finish to a car race like this one! At the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at the Iowa Speedway, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Roush Fenway Racing teammate Carl Edwards were going at it battling for position. But headed for the finish line Stenhouse Jr. blew his engine and slowed. Edwards had little time to react and smashed into the back of Stenhouse, shoving Stenhouse across the finish line…in first place!
Soccer may be hard for many to watch, but when goals happen they can be spectacular athletic achievements. Take 19-year-old Brazilian sensation Neymar, who probably won’t be playing for Brazil’s Santos FC for very long after scoring a goal like this one, then another that was pretty spectacular. Word is, Real Madrid is very interested.
So, the El Paso Diablos‘ American Association league-mates, the Amarillo Sox, got a new mascot a week ago. Except that…well, “Lee” the mascot looks like a sock that needs to be thrown back into the wash with a little fabric softener. He’s a little hard…to look at.
