This Is the Most Unbelievable Football Loss You’ve Ever Seen. What a Bizarre Mistake…

Oct 30, 2014 By Joey White 0

The game was wrapped up. The winner would move on to postseason play while the loser’s season was over.

Down by 3 points, Maple Mountain failed to convert their last chance with 1:22 left on the clock. Spanish Fork would now let the clock run out and beat Maple Mountain. At least that’s what everyone assumed would happen.

As the final seconds ticked away, the broadcaster noted,

“It looks like — barring some chaotic turnover here — Spanish Fork will move on to get Woods Cross on Saturday. Maple Mountain’s season will come to an end.”

It’s a good thing he left open the possibility for a chaotic turnover.

With 3.7 seconds left on 4th down, all Spanish Fork needed to do was run out the clock.

They could’ve punted the ball…

They could’ve run out of bounds…

They could’ve fallen to the ground and taken a tackle…

They could’ve even run backwards to their own end zone, giving up 2 points for a safety, and still won by a point…

They could pretty much do anything — except for what they actually did…

(The 50-minute video is set to play at the relevant moment.)

For a quarterback who set numerous records in a sensational 3-year career, it was a brutal way for Jason Money to end his senior season. Of course, the Spanish Fork coaching staff placed the blame squarely on their own shoulders…

This play is on us as coaches. We dropped the ball, not Jason. …[T]ake it easy on the kid, be respectful and imagine how you would want someone to treat your friend, brother, son, player after a defeat like this.

It was a brutal way for Spanish Fork to end their season. There’s no better reminder than this that in football, the game really isn’t over until the final whistle blows.

Student Who’s Never Played Basketball Shocks Crowd, Nails 4 Shots in a Row for $10,000

Oct 29, 2014 By Joey White 0

This basketball contest seems impossible. Participants have to make four shots in 30 seconds — a layup, free throw, three point, and half court shot.

Oh, and they have to get their own rebounds.

When Tennessee’s Bryan College kicked off their basketball season Monday night with a big rally called the Late Night Roar, the contest was part of the festivities. A $10,000 prize awaited the student who could accomplish the feat, which seems hard enough even if there weren’t a 30-second clock running.

Gustavo Angel Tamayo has never played basketball. The senior gained asylum in England at the age of 6 and grew up there before moving to the U.S. for school. Soccer has always been his favorite sport and he hopes to continue playing professionally after his tenure as the college’s center midfielder is over.

But inexperience on the hardwood didn’t deter Tamayo, nor did the broken finger on his left hand from a soccer injury. The student stepped up and delivered this incredible performance…

He briefly forgot to get the basketball after one shot, he needed a shooter’s roll to make one shot, and the buzzer went off as his last shot fell…but it was all enough to earn him the $10,000 award and an amazing moment nobody in that gym will ever forget.

Guess What Hugely Popular Song Is Banned In San Francisco Right Now?

Oct 20, 2014 By Abraham 0

Over the course of the next few days, there will be one word hated more than any other in the Bay Area. And it just so happens that one of the most popular songs in the world right now is that word.

As the World Series gets under way, no one in San Francisco wants to hear anything that could be even remotely construed as supporting the — and here’s that word — Royals.

Lorde

So two stations have responded to the outcry of their listeners and banned Lorde’s most popular song from their airwaves during the World Series.

8-Year-Old Gets to Suit up for High School Football Game, Scores the Best Touchdown Ever…

Oct 17, 2014 By Joey White 2

An 8-year-old boy with Down syndrome stole the show at a high school football game last night in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. First grader Gabe White has roamed the sidelines of the high school’s freshman team as their honorary captain this fall while watching his older brother play.

For the last game of the season, Coach Mark Apfel gave Gabe an oversized football jersey, helmet, and shoulder pads and told him to suit up…

Gabe and Coach

The game ended with a loss for the Hodags to the visiting Mosinee High School, but the Rhinelander players stuck around. There was a “5th quarter” still to be played.

As Rhinelander walked back onto the field, the Mosinee players couldn’t figure out what was going on. Then they noticed the 8-year-old boy on the field in a helmet and pads, and their coach told them, “Run the kickoff and don’t tackle him!”

The boys from Mosinee realized what was going on and did exactly what their coach asked them to. The weary group returned to the field and lined up for the kickoff, leaping through the air with missed tackles as they chased an 8-year-old boy to the end zone…

Gabe’s moment on the gridiron with his high school heroes is especially noteworthy for me because he’s my little brother. It’s not often I get to write a story about someone I know, much less someone in my family.

What those kids from Mosinee did was a spectacular display of sportsmanship. They didn’t have to drag themselves back onto that field, much less put the effort they did into running that last play. It was a great moment for Gabe, those fans, and everyone on the field, and now it’s a great moment for the rest of us.

25 Seconds of the Craziest Pushups You’ve Ever Seen

Oct 10, 2014 By Abraham 0

Most of us can get a perfectly good workout when we do ordinary pushups. But some people are past that and need to take their pushups to the next level if they want to feel the burn — perhaps putting their feet up on a chair or maybe doing one-armed pushups.

And then there’s the level beyond that…

This Gymnast Will Endure Anything for Her Sport…Except a Little Bee. Hilarious…

Oct 10, 2014 By Abraham 0

Simone Biles will risk sprains, broken bones, and all kinds of physical stresses to be the best gymnast she can be…but no bugs. That crosses the line.

After winning gold at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championship, she proudly stood atop the the podium to receive her medal. But then the silver medal winner beside her pointed out that there was a little buzzing bee hanging out on Biles’ bouquet…and that was the end of her serene moment of victory…
