June-Tube: 5 Crazy Moments from the Past Month in Sports
Now that the month of June is officially “in the books,” I thought what a perfect time to look back at some of the more memorable, unique moments, captured on video, from the always weird and wonderful world of sports.
From the Stanley Cup finals to the U.S. Open to the X Games, here are five clips for your viewing pleasure.
In this day and age of professional sports, I’m not sure why the powers that be at UEFA do not use instant replay.
Not that there are a lot of goals to contend with in a soccer match, but to have the outcome of a game in the Euro Cup effected by a bad call is just wrong.
During the recent Queens Club tournament, tennis player David Nalbandian went to take out his frustrations on a small wooden box, except he forgot just one thing—there was a linesman sitting in it.
For his actions, the Argentinean was disqualified from the tournament.
I guess you can say that in the end he was the one who got the boot.
Boarding Bad Boy
In sports, just as in life, there are those defining moments that every athlete wishes he could relive.
For the New Jersey Devils' Steve Bernier, I’m sure he would kill to be able to reverse his decision to run Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi through the end boards.
As a result of Bernier’s five-minute boarding major, the Kings went on to score three power-play goals, thus putting the nail in the Devils' Stanley Cup coffin.
While being interviewed after winning the U.S. Open, golfer Webb Simpson had to endure his own version of a British invasion.
Perhaps the bird-loving Brit, craving his 15 seconds of shame, was still upset about the Revolution.
One can hope that he gets shipped back across the pond so that the Queen can knight him “Sir Douchebag.”
Also, is it me, or is Bob Costas getting shorter?
Double Loop of Death
I’m not quite sure how to explain this other than to use the immortal words of Jeff Spicoli and say, "Awesome, totally awesome!"
