Hanley Ramirez unveils fantastic new hairstyle


Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez has done some great things with his hair over the years. He has gone above and beyond with the latest.

Earlier this week, Ramirez posted some photos on Instagram of his new hairstyle. I like to think of it as a combination between comedian Katt Williams and music sensation Prince.


Remember, this is the same guy who once dyed his hair blond. I made fun of him for that, but now I almost wish he’d bring it back. The blond hair would be a massive improvement.

Coyotes G Mike Smith gets puck stuck in pants, carries it into net for OT winner (Video)

Mike-Smith-puck-in-pantsTough breaks sometime result in losses, but the Phoenix Coyotes fell victim to a bad break on Monday night that may not be topped this season. The Buffalo Sabres beat Phoenix in overtime when Coyotes goalie Mike Smith let up an own goal — if you can even call it that.

Smith came out of the net for a poke check and managed to pop the puck into the air. When it came down, the puck ended up in the back of his pants. Naturally, Smith had no idea the puck was in his pants and he retreated to cover the net. His backside crossed the goal line in the process and the Sabres picked up the win.

Smith, who likes to get a rise out of people judging by this mullett, had a hilarious sense of humor about the play after the game.

The Butt Goal is one Smith and everyone else who was involved will never forget.

NaVorro Bowman wins game for 49ers with pick-six (GIF)

Navorro Bowman interceptionCandlestick Park was home to many memorable sporting moments, so it was only appropriate that NaVorro Bowman gave it a special sendoff.

Bowman made a great interception and returned it 89 yards for a touchdown to totally change Monday night’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons had just scored a touchdown to cut San Francisco’s lead to three points with 2:09 left, and they recovered an onside kick at the 30. Passes to Harry Douglas and Tony Gonzalez took it down to the 10, and it looked like the Falcons were going to score a go-ahead touchdown. But that’s when Bowman, who whiffed on the onside kick allowing Atlanta to recover, redeemed himself.

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was ecstatic after the game, calling the play the “best birthday present I’ve ever gotten … second only to being born.”

It was truly an awesome play, and it helped give the 49ers a thrilling 34-24 win. It also clinched a playoff berth for San Francisco.

Here’s another look at the interception by Bowman:

Paul Pierce ejected for clotheslining George Hill (Video)

Paul Pierce was either really frustrated during the third quarter of Monday’s Brooklyn Nets-Indiana Pacers game, or he was trying to make a tribute to ’80s basketball, because he committed a pretty dirty play that led to his ejection.

George Hill was running in transition after getting a steal with his Pacers up 66-47. Pierce wasn’t about to let Hill get an easy layup or dunk to finish the play, so the veteran clotheslined him. Pierce was charged with a flagrant 2 foul, which calls for an automatic ejection. I’m surprised he didn’t bounce Hill off the turnbuckle first.

Pierce’s night to that point might explain his actions; he was 0-for-7 and finished with zero points in 15 minutes. Yikes. And then of course he acted innocent and wondered why he was ejected. C’mon, man.

Tom Brady couldn’t find anyone to high-five with (GIF)

Tom-Brady-high-fiveThe New England Patriots cruised to one of their easiest victories of the season in Baltimore against the Ravens on Sunday. The Pats, who must have been offended that they were 2.5-point underdogs, handed Baltimore its worst home loss in franchise history — a 41-7 beatdown. No one was more excited about it than Tom Brady.

The Ravens put in backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the fourth quarter when the game got out of hand. The Patriots tacked on two touchdowns in the final two minutes by way of a botched snap and a pick-six. Brady celebrated the plays on the New England sideline, but no one seemed to want to give him a high-five.

This has to be some sort of running joke against Brady, right? Two months ago, wide receiver Julian Edelman totally snubbed No. 12 on the sideline when Brady stuck his hand out for a high-five. It appeared that everyone was doing the same during the final minutes of Sunday’s game. We’re left to assume this is some sort of brilliantly-executed prank at Brady’s expense.

LeGarrette Blount did the Ray Lewis dance after scoring TD (GIF)

LeGarrette Blount Ray Lewis danceLeGarrette Blount really rubbed it in on the Baltimore Ravens during the New England Patriots’ beatdown of their AFC rival in Baltimore Sunday.

After scoring a touchdown late in the team’s blowout win, Blount mocked Ray Lewis’ famous squirrel dance. His rendition of it was hilarious.

Blount had two touchdowns and 76 yards on 18 carries in the win. I think he overdid it with the spirit fingers, but that was still solid as heck. Maybe the point was to overexaggerate for effect. Whatever the case, he definitely did it better than Emmanuel Sanders did a few weeks ago. Love it.

Redskins fan falls down stairs, pushed by security guard (Video)

Redskins fanA fan at the Washington Redskins-Dallas Cowboys game was tossed down the stairs in the upper deck at FedEx Field on Sunday, a Vine video shows.

Details surrounding the incident are unclear, but the video shows a fan wearing a “Dallas sucks” shirt being pushed by a security guard and then either falling because he was pushed, falling because he was drunk, or falling to exaggerate. Whatever the reason, some of the people in the section were immediately outraged over what happened.

This tweet from the Vine video uploader indicates the fan was being removed for cussing or something:

So what do you think? Was the fan acting or really thrown down the stairs by the guard?
