The Sunday – Bringing Back The Beauty

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 4.8.2018

The Beautiful Game

Cristiano Ronaldo did it again. He did the amazing that even gave  the opposing clubs fans a reason to stand and cheer.

 

Well, that’s an amazing save.

The Masters

Even if you hate golf, you have to like these.

Well It’s Baseball

Things you’d expect to see in minor league baseball are now in the majors such as,

A bald eagle landing on a player…..

Snow storm for a home opener….

And a hockey stick for an opening pitch.

While ejections can weaker and weaker.

Walk Off

Two of the better, and stranger, walk offs you’ll see.

And then there was this in the 14th inning.

Ugly And Good

The UFC’s biggest star did this….

Which took a couple of fighters off of the UFC 223 card. Then NYPD did this…

But remember, there are more good folks in sports then there are bad. While McGregor did what he did and was charge with a crime, Tennessee Titans quarterback did this for the Special Olympics.

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 – 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.

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

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.

The Sunday – The Ridiculous

The Silly Season Goes To A Whole New Level

Well the silly season of college football was taken to a whole new level this past week. Tennessee led the charge with the most bungled, dumpster fire coaching search in recent memory that ended up costing the Athletic Director his job. A distant second might be the Texas A&M search. It’s not that the A&M search was bad, it was just what was paid.

Texas A&M fired Kevin Sumlin, who went 51-26 in 6 seasons with the Aggies, and then hired Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher. To fire Sumlin, A&M has to pay him $10.4 million due in the next 60 days and then it turned around and signed a deal to pay Fisher $75 million over 10 years…..fully guaranteed.

Meanwhile Florida State was not happy. They essentially pushed out Fisher before the Seminoles final game because they flat out got tired of it. Then people were apparently outside of Fisher’s house and noticed this…..

Sumlin on the other hand may land a coaching gig here soon. His final press conference was pure class though.

While the Texas A&M switch at Head Coach was an unkept secret for weeks, the only one worse was UCF coach Scott Frost going home to Nebraska.

Frost was pretty disappointed that he didn’t get to savour the incredible win against Memphis for the AAC title and let people know at the post game press conference.

None the less, Frost is the Head Coach at Nebraska. In fact, here was there this morning.

A final note on Tennessee (and I am a proud Tennessee alumni), the fan base has a right to be upset. As ESPN’s Chris Low pointed out in a tweet on Saturday;

The fan base also needs to understand how this looks outside of Vol Nation. While many if not most could care less what those people think (especially in this era of absolute hatred for differing opinions), recruits and coaches do. Tennessee’s climb back to national prominence was going to be hard before firing Butch Jones. After this week, it got even harder.

The Good Stuff

Oh, yes he did

Photobomb

First they broke the field….

Then this guy fixed it.

His name by the way is Erik Harlow and he is a hero. 

 

Cold Blooded

Just dribble around Mr. Ball.

Thanksgiving Football

Thanksgiving has 3 F’s. Family, Food and Football.

Barkley Being Barkley

Barry Being Barry. Really?

Oh Nice!

What?

Regulating like a big dog.

Oh man.

While that was bad, missing the kicking net might be worse.

 

Honesty.

Elevate Your Game

7-1 in Champions League? Wow!

The Sunday – Celebrations Along With Some Creativity

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 11.19.2017

Best celebration ever?

They are doing it right up in Canada.

Or was this one better? It’s after Sweden defeated Italy to make it to the World Cup.

But UCF, that’s some creativity. Like shotgunning beer.

Saturday

I believe I can fly…

And the second half kick off in Knoxville.

Lord.

But what about this hit by the kicker…

 

Brutus! Behave.

 

College

Never underestimate the creativity of college students.

 

Coolest Moment

Then the Broncos did stuff like this….

The Block

The catch.

and the pipes.

 

Fight

The Sunday – Fighting & Failure

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 11.12.2017

Fight

There were plenty of scuffles last Sunday….in the NFL.

But sometimes you were just kidding

Even celebrations had fights.

Then there is real fighting. And by that I mean Matt Brown sending himself off into retirement with a vicious knockout elbow.

The Wow Factor

Russell Wilson may have had a concussion during this play and that’s scary. It’s still an amazing play.

 

 

Before The Game

Never, ever underestimate the creativity of college students.

 

Well that’s one way to bring out the offensive linemen.

Mike Leach Moment of the Week

The Sunday – Bedlam In Every Sense Of The Word

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 11.5.2017

Bedlam

Oklahoma at Oklahoma State was just that, bedlam. It’s final score, 62-52. Or as Jay Bilas tweeted….

It was fun but long and sometimes it makes you think, ‘did anybody want to play defense?’

Speaking of bedlam, how about the UFC having 3 titles change hands in 1 night? In all the years that is the first time it has ever happened.

And GSP returns to take home a belt. He is now one of the few to win 2 titles in 2 different weight classes.

Oh look, another left hook!

Football

Outside of bedlam there were plenty of other memorable moments from the week that was in football. Including Ohio State losing but being classy, a snow game in Wyoming and some awesome dancing.

Ohio State may have been, surprisingly, blown out by Iowa in Iowa but they did take part in the coolest new tradition in sports, waving to the children’s hospital.

Snow!!!! What makes that even better? SloMotion snow!!!!!

How bout this for a flyover?

That catch.

And then sometimes, you just gotta dance.

 

Dunking

Happy Houston. Sad Houston.

The city of Houston has been through a lot lately. A devastating hurricane followed by historic flooding. In sports they saw JJ Watt and now Deshaun Watson go down with season ending injuries. But there is a bright spot, the Astros. The Astros defeated the LA Dodgers in 7 games to bring home their first World Series title. And people were stoked.

 

Best Halloween Costume

I am sure that there were others but just for the impression alone, Russell Wilson gets my vote.
