With all the trash on the internet, its always refreshing finding stories that make you feel good. Earlier this week NAIA Bryan College in Tennesseee staged a typical halftime contest you see all the time. A student needed to make a layup, free throw, 3-pointer and halfcourt shot in 30 seconds to win. The prize? $10,000 in tuition. Gustavo Angel Tamayo, a student from England who’d never played competitive basketball, did just that and he did it with a broken finger on his left hand.
Check out this disturbing video as a youth football referee is being awarded a $275,000 settlement after he was tackled and thrown to the ground, fracturing his shoulder. This is all AFTER the referee threw the first punch, because this is Florida, and anything goes.
Joseph Randle was arrested earlier this month for shoplifting cologne and underwear from a department store. CBS Dallas obtained video of his booking, and it doesn’t appear as though the Cowboys running back took his detainment very seriously. “If I give you $100, can you give me a massage?” he asked a woman. “No,” she replied.
He called his agent to say he got “jammed up” and asked for an attorney to provide bond, and wonders if this will end up on the news. (Yup!) There’s no context provided for how it came up, but Randle also brings up Josh Brent: “He’s still in the locker room.”
Bayern Munich beat Hamburger SV 3-1 in the German Cup on Wednesday. That’s not much of a surprise, considering Bayern are one of the best teams in Europe, while HSV is one of the worst near the bottom of the Bundesliga standings. However, Hamburg keeper Jaroslav Drobny still managed to put his body (part) on the line — painfully — in the loss when a shot drilled him right in the groin.
Or, as whomever was calling the match for British television said, the family jewels.
Kemba Walker made the shot that forced overtime with a second left in regulation. Then he made the game-winner with 5-seconds left in overtime. It was basically the same shot he hit at Madison Square Garden back in his Connecticut days. The *new* Charlotte Hornets have never lost a game. Kemba finished with 26 points on 26 shots. Kobe would be proud.
