25 of YouTube's Funniest Sports Fails


  • 1. Golf Cart Fail

    This runaway vehicle wreaked minor on-field havoc following a high school football championship in Texas last December. But a heroic bystander hopped aboard and put on the brakes.
    No casualties occurred, and the clip immediately became Internet legend.
  • 2. Penalty Kick Fail

    Watch out for the ricochet, goalie! This kid gets it in the right in the chops.
  • 3. Mascot on Rollerblades Fail

    What happens when you put an inflatable dinosaur on rollerblades and ask it to skate down a flight of stairs? Amazingness, that's what.
  • 4. Flopping Fail

    In sports, to "flop" is to exaggerate the force of contact in hopes of drawing a favorable call from officials. But you've got to time it much, much better than this guy does.
  • 5. Hockey Celebration Fail

    Apparently, if you hug a member of the opposite team after scoring a goal in hockey, you will get punched in the face.
  • 6. Innocent Bystander Fail

    This kid is just in the wrong place at the wrong time...to the benefit of the rest of us.
  • 7. Representing Your School Fail

    College football mascots are supposed to represent their schools in a fun, positive light — which doesn't typically include picking fights. Here, the University of Oregon's duck slams the University of Houston's cougar.
    Bonus points for the sick elbow drop, though.
  • 8. Weightlifting Fail

    Not saying we could successfully lift 432 pounds above our heads, but dang, that looks painful.
    German weightlifter Matthias Steiner dropped this massive barbell on his neck during the London Olympics this summer, but escaped serious injury.
  • 9. Trampoline Dunk Fail

    Sometimes, when you fail, you actually win.
  • 10. Hurdling Fail

    Why jump over hurdles when you could just RUN STRAIGHT THROUGH THEM?
    File under: Never, Ever Gets Old.
  • 11. Paying Attention Fail

    After what could best be described as an "optimistic" shot attempt in a game last season, NBA center JaVale McGee showed some nice hustle getting back on defense. Only problem? His team still had the ball.
  • 12. Judgment Fail

    But that wasn't McGee's only legendary moment. Here, he shows why it's not a good idea to try dunking from the free throw line mid-game.
  • 13. Olympic Promo Fail

    For some reason, London's Olympic promotions this summer involved hanging Mayor Boris Johnson on a zipline while waving a pair of tiny flags.
    Then he got stuck halfway through and it was pretty much the best, funniest, awkwardest thing that could have happened.
  • 14. Grand Slam Celebration Fail

    Major Leaguer Kendry Morales broke his lower left leg while celebrating a game-winning grand slam in 2010. This edited video provides the before, during and after rundown.
  • 15. Slam Dunk Fail

    See? White guys can jump? It's just the landing that's the hard part.
  • 16. High Dive Fail

    The announcer here sums it up perfectly. She calls this attempt from the 1992 Olympics "an absolute failed dive."
  • 17. Piggyback Ride Fail

    What begins as an innocent enough piggyback ride atop a fuzzy mascot turns into a pretty epic collision — and YouTube gold.
  • 18. Long Jump Fail

    Dude! If you're gonna pump up the crowd like that, you can't just faceplant into the sand.
  • 19. Touchdown Celebration Fail

    When you think about it, is there any better way to celebrate a touchdown than by pegging an unsuspecting spectator in the face? Bonus points for originality, at least.
  • 20. Pro Golfer Fail

    You'd think a professional golfer could put the ball in the hole with less than 16 strokes. Kevin Na — and the rest of the world — found out otherwise on this par-four hole at the 2011 Valero Texas Open.
  • 21. Head-First Slide Fail

    Well, that's one way of doing it...right?
  • 22. Time Management Fail

    Tie game, clock winding down — it's always better to get one last attempt up than just let the game go into overtime. A full court desperation heave with a 11 seconds to go is never the way to do it, however.
    This classic gaffe by the University of Connecticut's Roscoe Smith came during a matchup of top teams in 2011.
  • 23. Boogie Boarding Fail

    Its veracity may be suspect, but this 2008 YouTube classic has more than 12.7 million views, despite a mind-numbing soundtrack.
  • 24. Sportsmanship Fail

    The summer of 2011 was a tough time for NBA star LeBron James. It was full of lingering ill-will for his decision to the leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and snarky schadenfreude over his initial failure to win a championship with the Miami Heat.
    So it makes perfect sense that he'd let off some steam by viciously dunking on a tiny kid at summer camp, right? That's what happens at the 0:43 mark of this video.
  • 25. Standing on a Basketball Hoop Fail

    We're not quite sure why this mascot thought standing on top of a basketball rim was a good idea

10 Winners in the USA-Germany World Cup Wet T-Shirt Contest

Soccer_wetshirt-9

It was raining cats and dogs in Recife, Brazil, during the USA-Germany World Cup match on Thursday. While the downpour made things difficult for the players, the rain paired with Team USA's white jerseys made things all the better for spectators.
Arena Pernambuco quickly became a giant wet T-shirt contest, so naturally, we ranked the players on their greatest assets: their feet! Just kidding. Their cleats were probably waterproof.
Talk about a wet hot American summer.

12 Things You Forgot Happened in 2013

  • Paula-deen

    1. Paula Deen's Career Melts After Deposition

    Paula Deen, the celebrity cook known best for her affinity for adding extra butter, faced career chaos this summer over details of a leaked deposition. The paperwork included Deen's admissions to using the N-word and plans for a Southern plantation-style wedding, among others.
    In the wake of the deposition, Deen was booted from pork-producing company Smithfield Foods and her television home, the Food Network. Both noted an intolerance to racial slurs as the cause.
    Deen later appeared on the Today show to address her side of the story. Watch it in full here.

  • Rodman

    2. Dennis Rodman Kicked It With Kim Jong Un – Twice

    Former NBA star and self-titled "bad boy" Dennis Rodman visited North Korea in early 2013 with a film crew from media company Vice -- a "basketball diplomacy" trip, the company claimed, that they would turn into an HBO series.
    Rodman and his film crew were reportedly the first Americans to have met Kim since he took over North Korean rule from his father Kim Jong-il in 2011.
    The communist dictatorship has been at odds with the United States for decades. The country made direct nuclear threats to the Obama administration just months before Rodman's visit. But the basketball star insists Kim is a big-time basketball fan, particularly of the late-90s Chicago Bulls squad Rodman was a part of.
    Rodman returned for a second visit in early September. He'll reportedly return in late December 2013 for a third time, despite political tension following Kim's ordered assassination of his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, last week.

  • Selfie

    3. 'Selfie,' 'FOMO' and 'Twerk' Added to Dictionary

    Srsly: A selfie's worth a thousand Bitcoins.
    In late August 2013, the Oxford Dictionaries Online added a handful of web- and viral content-related words to its archives: selfie, digital detox, Bitcoin, BYOD, emoji, FOMO, geek chic, hackerspace, phablet, srsly, TL;DR and -- most notably -- twerk.
    Twerk, sensationalized in 2013 by Miley Cyrus, is defined as a verb: "[A] dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."
    The dictionary included the following sentences as examples: "Just wait till they catch their daughters twerking to this song," and, "Twerk it girl, work it girl."
    TL;DR: This.

  • Manti

    4. The Manti Te'o Girlfriend Hoax

    American linebacker Manti Te'o, who was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the 2013 NFL draft, was subject to a bizarre romantic hoax.
    In October 2012, Te'o, then a linebacker for the University of Notre Dame, appeared in a YouTube video to speak about the recent losses of his grandmother and his girlfriend -- both of whom had passed away from illnesses, only six hours apart, on Sept. 12, 2012.
    In mid-January 2013, two reporters from Deadspin published an investigation into Te'o's girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, claiming there was no evidence of her existence all along. The relationship was, after all, online -- the two had never met in person.
    The sports world was stunned. Kekua, it turns out, was a hoax. The photos associated with her social media activity had been stolen from the account of a young California woman who was unaware of the hijacking.
    Notre Dame and Te'o released statements admitting that Kekua had never existed, but added that Te'o was actually among the hoax's victims, not its perpetrators. They had both become aware of the truth in late December 2012.
    Later, it was revealed that 22-year-old Ronaiah Tuiasosopo was behind the hoax: He admitted responsibility to Kekua's tweets, speaking in a falsetto voice on the phone with Te'o -- everything.
    He claims he was in love with Te'o, and assured the football player knew nothing of the hoax.

    5. House of Cards Becomes First Web Series to Win Emmy

    In September, Netflix's political thriller House of Cards became the first web series to win an Emmy award.
    David Fincher, the show's director, won the award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, beating out showrunners for Breaking BadBoardwalk EmpireDownton Abbey and Homeland.
    House of Cards was nominated for a total of nine Emmys. It won two additional Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and Outstanding Cinematography for a Single Camera Series.

  • 6. New 'Harlem Shake' Goes Viral -- and Real Harlem Reacts

    Contrary to popular belief, the Harlem Shake -- the real one -- didn't originate from a 2012 synth song; it actually started in Harlem, New York City, nearly three decades ago.
    DJ artist Baauer released an unrelated electronic song, which happened to be called "Harlem Shake," in late 2012. In February 2013, Australian-based comedy group The Sunny Coast Skate uploaded a video of its members dancing to the song. Soon, their dance spread everywhere. It begins with a lone person jiving in a room full of bored on-lookers, then cuts into a group craze-off once the beat drops. Like, everywhere.
    The real Harlem wasn't impressed. Shortly after the craze began, YouTubers SchleppFilms filmed a series of street interviews on Harlem's 125th Street, outside the famed Apollo Theater, asking residents what they really thought of the new dance that stole their neighborhood's name. The answers -- "It looks like they're dry-humping air;" "They're making an absolute mockery out of [Harlem]" -- are less than flattering.
    Some residents later responded with a video showing what the dance should really look like.

  • 7. Veronica Mars Movie Raises Funds Through Kickstarter

    Rob Thomas, creator of the TV mystery show Veronica Mars, raised money through Kickstarter to take the series to the big screen.
    The campaign's goal was initially $2 million, but at time of writing, it's racked up more than $5 million from nearly 100,000 donors across the world.
    In the movie, Veronica (played by Kristen Bell) returns to her hometown of Neptune, Calif., after being gone for 10 years, to aid former love interest Logan (played by Jason Dohring), who's been accused of killing his pop star girlfriend.
    The film's release date is March 14, 2014 -- exactly one year and one day after Thomas launched the crowdfunding campaign.

  • 8. Lance Armstrong Admits to Doping on 'Oprah' Special

    For most of cyclist Lance Armstrong's life, he'd faced consistent allegations from the media and his competitors that he'd relied on PEDs to win his record seven Tour de France titles, from 1999 to 2005. Armstrong, however, denied everything.
    In June 2012, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) officially accused him of doping and trafficking drugs. After more pressure, predominately through social media, Armstrong finally admitted to using PEDs during an interview with Oprah in early 2013 (above).
    Following the investigation and interview, all of Armstrong's sponsors -- including Nike, which had previously supported the Livestrong campaign -- dropped him.

  • Lego-7

    9. Lego Builds a Life-Sized X-Wing Fighter

    In April, Lego built its largest structure to date: a life-sized X-Wing fighter from the Star Wars franchise.
    The structure was built in the Czech Republic over the course of four months, then shipped in pieces via freight ship to Long Island, N.Y. It was officially unveiled in New York City's Times Square for a weekend in May, then shipped off -- again, in pieces -- to Legoland in California.
    The huge structure is comprised of 5,335,200 individual Lego bricks. At 11 feet tall, 43 feet long and 44 feet wide, it weighs almost 46,000 pounds. Lego designed the ship in celebration of Cartoon Network's The Yoda Chronicles, which premiered in May.
    Mashable was lucky enough to get a first-hand glance. Flip through the full gallery of pics here.

  • 10. Videos of Russian Asteroid Strike Go Viral

    On Feb. 15, 2013, a small asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere and exploded about 76,000 feet above Chelyabinsk, Russia.
    The explosion created a shockwave that damaged nearby homes and injured more than 1,000 people. Most injuries resulted from shattered glass and debris; some even reported sunburn and temporary blindness from the flash.
    Within hours of the boom, several videos had already been uploaded to YouTube, most of which were taken from dashboard cameras. (A reported one million Russians have cameras installed in their cars as a way to monitor potential police corruption.)
    In November, Science magazine published an in-depth study about the impact.
    Take a look at a compilation of the day's videos above.

  • 11. Andy Murray Becomes First British Man to Win Wimbledon in 77 Years

    In June, Scottish tennis player Andy Murray defeated number one-ranked Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final. In doing so, Murray became the first British man to win the yearly London tournament in 77 years. The last British winner was Virginia Wade in 1977, and the last British man to win was Fred Perry, who claimed the title in 1936.
    The grueling match lasted more than three hours, ending with a score of 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.
    Murray, 26, gave an emotional and earnest speech upon receiving the trophy. Watch it above.
    On Dec. 15, 2013, Murray was awarded the prestigious BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award.

  • 12. People 3D Print Guns

    2013 was informally the year of the 3D printer. Along with groundbreaking innovations in the fields of healthcarearchitecture and artificial intelligence, another area of focus hit it big: firearms.
    In early May, a man named Cody Wilson fired the world's first entirely 3D-printed handgun, then filmed it and posted its blueprints online.
    Soon, gun enthusiasts and just-plain-curious 3D printer owners across the world followed suit. Some guns fired; some didn't.
    Mashable landed an exclusive interview with 30-year-old software engineer Travis Lerol from Baltimore, Md., who printed and tested his own version of Wilson's "Liberator" model. The total cost to print it? $30.
    Watch the results in the mini-documentary above.
