The Sunday – Ups, Downs and Back Up

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 6.10.2018

Finally

The Washington Capitals finally got their cup. That means that Alex Ovechkin lifted the Stanley Cup. A trophy he’s been chasing and one most people thought he’d lifted many, many years earlier. Bottom line, Ovechkin became part of a team that was able to get over the hump (the Eastern Conference Semi’s). Once that was complete, the rest was almost a inevitable.

Heck, even the rivals gave a tip of the cap.

Baseball and then Baseball

Did this just happen? Yep. Not exactly something that Major League Baseball want’s fans to see.

This on the other hand is what Major League Baseball does want you to see.

Cold Blooded

The Golden State Warriors dynasty run continues. A sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers. While game four was of course the official end, game three was the dagger and it was delivered by on Kevin Durant.

Impressive

Watch the whole thing. It’s an impressive feat. A clear example of never, ever giving up. Even when the odds look impossible.

The Sunday – It’s Playoff Season

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 4.15.2018

The Stanley Cup Playoffs

It’s arguably the best postseason in all of sports. And the opening games proved why.

The scoring….

 

Passing….

Saves…

The game winner…

And how excited are people in Las Vegas about the Golden Knights? Well how bout this send off for Game 3.

Buzzer Beater

Well the NBA Playoffs started too, and this was an awesome shot to send the game into OT.

Make Ya Smile

This is just a great story. A professional career stuck in the minors and when you get the call, you light it up.

 

Then there is this. Rex Culpepper throws a touchdown. It may not sound like a big deal but to him it is. In fact, he starts his second round of chemo on Monday because he is battling testicular cancer.

The Sunday – Madness In Many Forms

Let It Snow

Well it is spring but don’t tell Mother Nature that. She, and Father Time, are the only two to ever be undefeated. Take note NASCAR.

Blocking Madness

Ooooooohhhh!!!! Is pretty much how ever one reacted when they saw this….

Most of the time Pekka Rinne is much better than this. But for Make – A – Wish, we absolutely make an exception.

Sid The Kid

Well he’s not a kid anymore….but still amazing.

 

Sign of the Week

The Sunday – The Return Of The Madness

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 3.18.2018

 

It Is Madness

The 1

When you see that 135-1, remember, UMBC is that 1.

Rory!

Let’s face it, Rory was on fire today.

Mr. James With The Thunder

….damn.

Him

Scott Frost played under Tom Osborne. So it should be no surprise that Frost has a little Osborne in him.

 

The Sunday – The Super of Sports

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 2.4.2018

Not So Super

Ok, I get that not all Americans are football fans but there are some basic things that you could at least hazard a guess on. Couldn’t ya? Dallas Cowboys? You can’t offer that up as a guess? As an NFL saying goes, “C’mon Man!”

 

Hall Of Fame

Something cool about this. No phone calls, no letters or tweets. Just a good ole fashion knock on the door. Welcome class of 2018.

Moss will make ya cry.

 

Super Crashes

Roo Rage….

Friendly Fire…

Super Blocks….

 

Super Scores

McDavid being McDavid.

And of course after this, security missed this guy coming out from the crowd….

Super Skills

Age doesn’t matter cause when you got it, you got it.

The Sunday – Whoa, Nelly!

Whoa, Nelly!

The great Keith Jackson passed away this weekend. The commentator is the second legend of the industry to pass away in a matter of weeks. Jackson was the soundtrack for college football for several generations. He called some of the greatest games in the sport including the 2006 National Championship game between Texas and USC.

And of the course the Colorado Hail Mary back in 1994.

He was an icon of the industry and he will be missed.

Winning

On passing

In pregame…

In the meltdown….

In trying to be the next Steph Curry

And in the finish….

Moments of the Week

Not sure why, how, or if this was a good idea but I am glad someone thought of it.

The Sunday – Stop And Appreciate

Compiled By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 1.7.2018

Oh So Pretty

The American showing how it’s done.

Other times you just have to do it yourself.

National Champions

UCF pretty much decided that after a perfect season they’re National Champions. Can’t really disagree especially when they were 0-12 two years ago and have a kid like this as they’re sack master.

And they have some awesome celebrations.

But other times they got no respect.

 

We’re Talking About Practice

Well, getting to the indoor facility proved difficult for the Patriots.

 

Moments of the Week

The Rose Bowl once again delivered. It was great game but maybe not as good as this shot.

Or maybe it was the reaction of the Buffalo Bills and Bills fans around the country when they found out they were going to the playoffs for the first time since 1999.

Or maybe it was Jags fans trying to copy Bills fans.

The Sunday – New Year and New Memories

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 12.31.2017

 

Not In Holiday Spirit

Getting sucker punched is never in the holiday spirit.

Neither is this pointless ejection.

Miami head coach Mark Richt, yeah, not in the holiday spirit after a holding call that went by the wayside.

In The Holiday Spirit

This guy…..

The Sense of giving…

Uh, this dog.

Coach Martin giving the opposing team a pep talk.

But the real holiday spirit is reflected in former Arkansas AD Jeff Long and football coach Brett Bielema. Both tweeted their support for their successors after being unceremoniously sacked by the University in late November.

Moments Of The Week

Brought to you by, you guessed it, Washington State head coach Mike Leach.

Followed quickly by Bill Walton being, well, Bill Walton.

And then later….

The Sunday – The Shake Your Head Moments

Celebrations + Formations

Not sure what was happening here but hey, it’s Boise State in a bowl game.

Then the Internet did its thing….

 

No Shame

 

Plays

And the bad part was, this was called back on a penalty.

And that was almost as good as this, which did count.

And how long is this suspension going to be?

Giving Back

Wait, I have to blow snow?

Moments of the Week

San Diego State head coach on Texas A&M’s new head coach’s contract…

And then things got ugly in Jacksonville.

The Sunday – Bringing The Boom

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 12.10.2017


Laying Down The Boom

Here comes the….

Bell the bulldozer.

Julio Jones, laying the wood.

A boom in another form.

Of Note….

Best celebration?

Or This?

?

How to get suspended…do this.

And some days, you just don’t get along.

Then Gronk did this and Belichick had to apologize.

 

Winners

It use to be that no sports team in the city of Toronto won a championship. Now they’ve had two in a matter of weeks. First the Argos took home the Grey Cup and now Toronto FC took home MLS Cup.

Mascots who have a dance off? Yep, that’s winning.

Army v Navy

Normally, cold opens as they are called are forced, overly done and meaningless. The open for the Army v Navy game was at times ‘overly done’ but man is it good.
