The Sunday – The Good Stuff

WOOOOWWWW

Gotta love the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

 

 

 

Better

One of the great things about sports is that it reminds us how good we can be as human beings.

Always love these moments.

It takes more than just the players.

Watch Out!

Scary moment during the Cubs v Rockies game. Fortunately Bryant wasn’t seriously hurt. He’s doing as good as can be expected.

Bryce Harper did something very impressive, he hit a home run while breaking his bat. Damn.

The Sunday – Bringing Back The Beauty

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.

Saves and Swats

 

Livin the Dream

And his reward, $0. But hey, bet he’d do it again.

 

 

STARTS

Thats’s how you start a season!

Zlatan showed up in LA on Thursday.

 

Then on Saturday in the first derby between LA Galaxy and LAFC, Zlatan put on a display that put a smile on everyone’s face….unless you are an LAFC fan.

 

 

Easter Flashback

This might get better with age….

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.

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!

 

Mike Leach Moments Of The Week

Getting married? Let Leach give you some advice.

 

The Sunday – Games

The Games

The NFL games on Sunday are being overshadowed by the reactions of players, teams and owners to President Trump’s comments. Some players kneeled, other locked arms and some didn’t come out for the national anthem at all. All this can be discussed other places besides this blog.

What’d I’d like to focus on are games. The last second wins, the amazing catches and horrifically bad officiating that everyone can agree on were just bad.

Tom Brady: The Old Guy Who Can Through Dimes.

This is a 15 yard penalty…..really?

Oh just a little chip shot for the win…

How bout this for your first NFL catch?

Least we forget about Pierre Garcon’s catch from Thursday.

But still, OBJ will do OBJ things.

Then the Bears do Bears things.

 

Save And Fail

MLS is coming down the home stretch and still give us some amazing moments week in and week out.

Mr Rimando…..Sir!

Dude

But nothing may beat DC United’s Patrick Mullins scoring 4 goals…..in 31 minutes.

 

Giveth and Taketh

And the squirrel.

 

Yep

The Sunday – Putting It Aside

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 8.27.2017

Weekend

It was suppose to be a big weekend for sports. There was the return of college football,MLB pennate races, MLS rivalry week and of course the ‘biggest fight ever’. This all of course has ended up being eclipsed by Hurricane Harvey which has put the Houston area underwater.

The remnants of the storm have put sporting events up in the air as teams, schools and games figure out what to do next. Rice’s football team returns from Sydney, Australia is in question. The team was beaten up by  #14 ranked Stanford 62-7 on Saturday night. They are due to land in Los Angeles on Monday and from there they will have to make a decision on what to do next.

Rice is among a couple of schools and games that have their first week up in the air.

The Houston Texans will be practicing in Dallas for the week. They changed their travel plans after their game against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night. After the game on Thursday in Dallas, it’s up in the air on what the Texans will do next.

The Houston Astros are also heading to Dallas after their series against the Los Angeles Angels over the weekend. Whether or not they will play the Texas Rangers this week in Houston is up in the air.

Baseball Rules

Things got ugly on Thursday after what essentially relates to ‘baseball rules’. The rule goes, you hit our main guy, we hit your main guy. Sometimes it goes off without a hitch. Other times it turns into this.

 

Oh So Pretty

The Ultimate Catch

The best catch of the year may not be in the major leagues but in the Little League World Series.

Spectacle

Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor by TKO in the 10th round. It wasn’t really a surprise unless you really thought that an MMA fighter was going to beat the best boxer of all time in a boxing match.

Despite all the hype from those in the combat sports realm, the event was far from a sellout. According to the LA Times, T-Mobile arena was 6,000 people short of a sellout.

Crash

The Tour de France is full of interest this year. If it’s not cyclists being kicked out, it’s horrific crashes that make you wonder how these guys do it. Ritchie Porte is out of the Tour with a fractured pelvis and clavicle. 

Goals

This was a world class goal by a world class player.

 

Not Good

Not sure what Hamilton’s Will Hill was thinking here but it didn’t end well for him. He was thrown out of the game.

Nolan Being Nolan

There is a benefit to living in Denver, Colorado and being a baseball fan. That is that you get to watch Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado work. Or as we say in Denver, ‘Nolan being Nolan.’

 

Just A Little Taste

 

The Grab

Tim Tebow, who once threw touchdown passes, shows that he can catch baseballs.

 

Finishes

But how bout Jordan Spieth sinking this one from the bunker to win the Travelers Cup last weekend.

 

 

The Sunday – Achieving Goals

Compiled by Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard | 6.4.2017

600

Mr Albert Pujols. He is the quietest major leaguer to ever get to 600 home runs and only the 6th one to do it in history. Up next on his Hall of Fame – to – be – career? 3,000 hits.

Fight!

Now for the bad side of baseball, a revenge beaning followed by a fight. But first, the history between Bryce Harper and Hunter Strickland.

And now the replay..

It is good to know that neither Harper or Pujols will be threatened by UFC President Dana White when it comes to hitting a baseball.

 

It’s Good To Have Goals

Juventus may have lost the Champions League final but we all won when Mario Mandzukic made this one in the first half.

And now for the rest….

Textbook

Just for Kicks

It’s all fun and games until someone turns out the lights with a head kick.
