Anyone who has ever played baseball/softball has done this with their glove, but it takes a truly brilliant mind, with a loose shoe at hand, do it with their sneaker. Bravo, Georgetown women’s basketball player. Bravo.
“I didn’t like that he put his hands up with the bat,” Hirschbeck said. “That’s kind of what I yelled at him. He continued and threw his bat. I kind of pointed like, ‘That’s equipment.’ And then, he still continued and slammed his helmet down. That’s when I ejected him.

I know A.J. Francis as the former Maryland defensive lineman who’s good at Twitter. But forever more I’ll remember him as the guy who blew out the candles on his birthday cake, announced that he just got picked up by the Miami Dolphins and got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend while his friends went nuts.

I don’t recall this “Redskins Can Rock and Roll” song/video from the magical 1991 Super Bowl-winning season, but it cuts from John Riggins to Ricky Ervins, Sammy Baugh to Mark Rypien and the Fun Bunch to The Posse, so you know it must be posted here.
Alex Ovechkin has a sense of timing. On the heels of his best game of the season, where Ovechkin logged a hat trick in a 5-1 Caps win, a Russian video emerges of Ovechkin drilling a slapshot through the high heels of a gang of good looking Russian women. Enjoy.
