NFL Coach Insults Meteorologists. Weather Channel Brilliantly Hits Back with Hard Data…

Nov 7, 2014 By Joey 1

During a recent press conference, New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick went on diatribe against the inaccuracy of meteorologists’ forecasts.

The coach is notorious for hating having to talk to the press, so perhaps he was simply buying some time to bring the reporters’ hounding questions to an end…or maybe he was actually upset that a snowstorm had occurred on game day when some meteorologists had predicted two days earlier that playing conditions would be dry.

Regardless, his remarks about meteorologists were…unflattering. As it turns out, however, the facts were on the side of the meteorologists. And The Weather Channel made sure to perfectly point this out…

Dying Basketball Star Scores Game’s First Points. No Layup Has Ever Made So Many People Cry…

Nov 3, 2014 By Megan Berman 0

All 19-year-old Lauren Hill ever wanted to do was play basketball. And when she was recruited by the women’s basketball team at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, it seemed her dreams would come true…until, she says, “I wasn’t playing normally. I was dizzy and disoriented and wobbling around and not catching balls.”

Soon after, she was diagnosed with an inoperable cancer of the brainstem that her doctors say will take her life in just a few months.

But that didn’t stop Lauren from wanting to achieve her goals before the cancer claimed her. Determined not to give up, Lauren and her coach asked the NCAA to bend the rules and they complied. Instead of starting the season mid-November, they requested an exemption and had the first game moved to November 2nd, and played at home, so that Lauren could participate.

Nobody ever knows how much time you have left. I could be gone tomorrow or I could be here for another year. Why stop? Why give up on your life?

Lauren’s bravery and dedication to the game she loves has inspired so many people that Mount St. Joseph had to move the game to accommodate the thousands of people who wanted to attend in her support.

After she scored the first points of the game, there was not a dry eye in the arena…

Phish was Playing in San Fran When the Giants Won. Here’s How They Responded Mid-song…

If you were a local San Francisco Giants fan who also loves Phish on Wednesday night, you were following the score of Game 7 of the World Series while you were at the Phish concert.

When the final out was recorded during the middle of the show, giving the Giants their third World Series title in five years, the entire auditorium erupted in cheers.

Realizing what was going on, Phish casually broke from the song they were playing and transitioned into the perfect tribute to the newly-minted champions…

Michael Jordan Has a Very Simple Reason He Does NOT Want to Play Golf with Obama

Oct 31, 2014 By Abraham 0

After Michael Jordan condescendingly dismisses his interviewer Ahmad Rashad as not worth playing a round of golf with, he moves on to consider other people he’d want to hit the links with if he could organize his ideal foursome.

He’s not exactly sure what his dream line-up would be, but it definitely doesn’t include the president…

This is the Most Hilariously Sad Way to Get Rid of Your Ticket to a Terrible Pro Sports Game

Oct 31, 2014 By Joey 0

The Minnesota Timberwolves haven’t had a winning season in 9 long years, so fans can be forgiven for being unenthusiastic about their lackluster team.

One fan found himself unable to sell his ticket for the team’s home opener last night, and he didn’t want to simply throw it away, so he got creative.

Of course, the fan was sure to include a very Minnesotan apology at the end of his note…

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

Oct 30, 2014 By Joey 2

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 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.
