Man United And West Ham Play Out The Most Batshit Crazy Game Of Football

What the hell was that?! Manchester United and West Ham produced a ludicrous script on Sunday, featuring a West Ham opener, a Cristiano Ronaldo response, an 89th-minute winner and a 90+4’ penalty save off a 90+3’ substitute. 

Let’s do the late dramatics first, beginning in the 89th minute with Jesse Lingard curling home United’s go-ahead goal after jinking inside. 

Edin Džeko’s Nutmeg Goal Was Cheekier Than A Cabbage Patch Kid

Inter Milan broke in its beautiful third kit with a 6-1 rout of Bologna on Saturday. Edin Džeko came off the bench to score twice, including a wonderfully cheeky nutmeg goal, allowing us to forgive his awful whiff on a cross that was later put away by Matías Vecino as Inter ran riot at the San Siro.

200-IQ Play: Fiorentina Forward Uses Bird As Distraction To Score A Beauty

Over a decade ago, Arjen Robben perfected using an overlapping run as a decoy to cut inside and launch a long-range shot. On Saturday, Riccardo Saponara did one better, using the flight of a random bird on the pitch as a dummy run to score a smashing goal to help Fiorentina beat Genoa 2-1. 

If You Can’t Get Enough ‘Ted Lasso,’ Watch These Interviews

On Sunday, “Ted Lasso” is up for 20 Emmy Awards. While there’s no way the show wins them all — many cast and crew are nominated for the same honor — there’s no doubt the series will bring home at least some hardware. Ahead of the award show, many of the Ted Lasso actors did interviews on late-night TV shows. I’ve compiled a bunch of the clips so that, if you’re like me and can’t get enough of the show, you can see a little more “Ted Lasso” before Season 2 comes to an end in a few weeks. 

This One Thing Is Arguably The Worst Part About Being An American Fan Of European Soccer

Being an American fan of a Premier League club or other European team has its ups and downs. On the positive side you get to watch some elite soccer in the morning/afternoon and watching games is extraordinarily simpler today than say 10 years ago.

The downs are still in existence. Rarely (if ever) getting to see your favorite team in person isn’t any fun, having to pay the NBC overlords to stroke their Peacock sucks and still having to deal with Americans that hate soccer is annoying to say the least.

Which Is The Bigger Tragedy In Trinidad? THAT U.S. Loss Or Nicki Minaj’s Cousin’s Friend’s Swollen Balls

The internet is truly the most bizarre place on the planet. If you’re out of the loop on what’s going down in pop culture, Nicki Minaj is in the media spotlight after making the claim that her cousin’s friend in Trinidad had a bad reaction to the Covid-19 vaccine that resulted in swollen testicles.

How Lazio Managed To Score This Own Goal Will Baffle Physicists For Years To Come

When people ask me why I love soccer, I usually talk about how no sport allows players the freedom of creativity like the beautiful game. Maestros can move the ball around the pitch the way an artist moves her paint brush. Registas can pull the strings the way a master violinist plays a solo. Finishers can bring a crowd to its feet faster than the Pope.

But also, I just love all the wacky shit that happens, like the bizarre own goal that proved to be the difference in Galatasaray’s 1-0 win over Lazio in the Europa League on Thursday.

Guns, Drones And UFOs: The Craziest Reasons Football Matches Have Been Postponed

Over the years, soccer matches have been temporarily suspended for a variety of bizarre reasons, whether it be canine pitch invasions, tennis ball protests or a pig head on the pitch, but it takes a heck of a lot for an event to end a match.
