Incredible Puck-Juggling Goal

Posted by Trish18 Dec 29, 2008

This is a video of Team Canada's star John Tavares scoring an incredible puck-juggling goal during the World Juniors tournament. YahooSports writer Greg Wyshynski has described it as, "one of the highlight goals of the season, on any level."

 

What do you think--is it one of the best goals you've seen scored on any level?

Recently, Anderson Cooper challenged Michael Phelps to a race with a few conditions to try and even out the playing field. Phelps had to swim underwater, with no breathing, and could only use his legs. Cooper also got to dive in while Phelps could only push off the wall.

 

Who do you think won?

Back-to-back Aces

Posted by Trish18 Jul 17, 2008

Last week, brothers Davis and Hanks Massey, aged 9 and 11, respectively, pulled off a feat that borders on the unimaginable for golfers of all ages: They both hit holes-in-one in succession at the Par-3 third at TPC Sawgrass.





The odds of two players in the same group making a hole-in-one have been estimated at 17 million-to-1 by Francis Scheid, a retired Boston University math professor who was commissioned by Golf Digest to calculate hole-in-one odds under various scenarios.

Derek Redmond is a retired English athlete who, as a 400 metres and 4 x 400 metres runner, won gold medals at the European, Commonwealth, and World Championships.

 

However, he might best be known for the disappointment he suffered at the 1992 Summer Olympics in the 400m race.

 

He posted the fastest time of the first round, and won his quarter-final. In the semi-final, Redmond started well, but 175m from the finish, his hamstring tore. Redmond immediately fell to the ground, but soon began to hobble along the track. He was then joined on the track by his father, Jim Redmond, who had supported Derek for his whole career. Shortly before the line, Jim let go of his son, and he completed the race, with a standing ovation from the crowd of 65,000.

 

I was glued to the television during the Barcelona Olympics as a little girl and remember this happening. I will never, ever forget it:

I this this was a year or two ago. Impressive that he was able to have the presence of mind to try and get a foot on the ball--but to be able to find the ball, field it and turn to make a quick throw in time to get the runner is remarkable!

One Shining Moment 2008

Posted by Trish18 Apr 9, 2008

I want to take a moment to display the highlights of one of the greatest single-elimination tournaments of all time. That’s right, here is One Shining Moment, where you can see the best of three weeks and 64 games’ worth of college basketball's March Madness:

 




Quite possibly the best three minutes in sports.

Check out Federer and Agassi as they play on the worlds highest tennis court:

 





Seems like even the pros would lose quite a few tennis balls over the course of a match on this court! Watching this freaks me out a little--I don't think I'd do well hanging out up there.

 

Side note: Can anyone confirm if the song playing is from The Neverending Story?

Will Ferrell showed off the basketball skills he learned as Jackie Moon on the set of Semi-Pro when he faced basketball legend Bill Walton in a game of H.O.R.S.E.

 

Ferrell hit 3 shots in a row to jump out to a quick H.O.R. lead. Then he sunk an impossible, behind the glass, Larry Bird inspired shot to go up H.O.R.S.

 

The video never actually shows the outcome of the match but it seems fairly safe to say that Ferrell went on to take the game.

Steep: Big Mountain Skiing

Posted by Trish18 Mar 4, 2008

Steep is a feature documentary about bold adventure, exquisite athleticism and the pursuit of a perfect moment on skis. It is the story of big mountain skiing, a sport that barely existed 35 years ago.

 

It started in the 1970s in the mountains above Chamonix, France, where skiers began to attempt ski descents so extreme that they appeared almost suicidal. Now, two generations later, some of the world's greatest skiers pursue the exhilaration of skiing and exploring big, wild, remote mountains.

 

This film was shot in Alaska, Wyoming, Canada, France and Iceland. Check out the beautiful views and incredible skiing:
