Rory McIlroy goes shirtless with red wig after Ryder Cup win


The Europeans won their third-straight Ryder Cup and eighth in the last 10 tournaments against the United States on Sunday. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that Rory McIlroy contributed three points to the victory, but you might be a little surprised to see the way the 25-year-old celebrated the big day.

McIlroy posted a photo on Instagram Monday morning that showed him shirtless wearing a red wig. This is the same Rory who has been known to fill his trophies with Jagermeister, so we know he’s no stranger to partying.

But you know how we really know McIlroy couldn’t wait to pop bottles? His champagne bottle popped itself while Zach Johnson was still putting on the 18th hole.

This guy really does own life at the moment. Sorry, Woz, but it’s true.

Steven Souza makes incredible catch for final out of Jordan Zimmermann’s no-hitter (Video)

In his final start of the regular season, Jordan Zimmermann was brilliant. However, he wasn’t the only member of the Washington Nationals who impressed on the afternoon.

steven-souza-diving-catchWith two outs in the top of the ninth, Christian Yelich hit a pitch by Zimmermann to the gap in left-center that looked like a sure extra-base hit. Playing in only his fourth game in left field for Washington, Steven Souza tracked down the ball and left his feet to make an incredible diving catch to record the final out of the game and give Jordan Zimmermann the first no-hitter in Nationals history.

Zimmermann struck out 10 and walked one on the way to the victory. He needed just 104 pitches to retire the 28 batters he faced.

What a way to end a game. What a way to end a regular season for the team whose 96 wins are most in the National League. Bryce Harper agrees.

Craig Kimbrel hilariously mocked by Phillies fans (Video)

craig-kimbrel-stanceCraig Kimbrel of the Atlanta Braves is one of baseball’s best closers. He also has quite the stance prior to delivering pitches. Kimbrel bends over and stares toward home plate with his right arm extended before coming set on the mound.

Kimbrel came on for the ninth inning of Saturday’s game in Philadelphia, so Phillies fans behind home plate took the opportunity to have a little fun with the four-time All-Star.

Fans of Philadelphia sports teams take a beating nationally from time-to-time, but that’s pretty great.

Kimbrel was able to convert the save without allowing a run. However, you can’t say Phillies fans didn’t try to throw him off his game.


Ohio State coach body slams fan who ran onto field (Video)

When running onto the field of play during a game, there’s always the chance you could end up as the star of a viral video, depending on how your intrusion is handled.

Simply corralled and handcuffed would probably be the least eventful result and may not have you remembered. On the other end of the spectrum is getting body slammed by a coach, who happens to be a former linebacker.

anthony-schlegel-body-slam-fanThe latter is exactly what happened at Ohio Stadium on Saturday during the game between Ohio State and Cincinnati.

A fan decided to venture onto the field and was promptly met by Anthony Schlegel. Schlegel is currently a strength and conditioning coach for Ohio State and was an All-Big Ten performer as a player for the Buckeyes.

I’m guessing the intruder was not anticipating that. It’s highly doubtful he will forget it, though.

H/T Big Lead

York Revolution’s Sean Smith circles bases on torn ACL after home run (Video)

Sean Smith ACLSean Smith never made much of his baseball career in the minor leagues, but he made major headlines for what he did on Friday night.

Smith, an outfielder with the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League, hit a game-tying home run in the 8th inning of his team’s game with the Sugar Land Skeeters. While rounding first base, Smith somehow tore his ACL and went down to the dirt. Smith got up and circled the bases to score the tying run … hopping around as best as he could.

With a fairy tale story like this, you know there had to be a happy ending, and there was — the Revolution won 3-2 in 10 innings.

And wouldn’t you know it? Smith stuck around on crutches to sign autographs:

Hunter Pence dropped a bunch of F-bombs in great speech (Video)

Hunter Pence dropped a bunch of F-bombs in a great speech he gave during the San Francisco Giants’ celebration on Thursday night for clinching a playoff spot.

The speech was one obviously intended for Pence and his teammates, but several media members and TV cameras were around to capture it. CSN Bay Area even aired it live!

On Friday, CSN Bay Area apologized for airing the speech.

“What happened last night, we completely regret it and apologize not just to the viewers, including parents, children and the San Francisco Giants, but to Hunter Pence, who was unaware that our camera was there and showing it live,” said Ted Griggs, CSN Bay Area president and general manager, via the San Jose Mercury News. “We usually take a lot of steps so that kind of thing does not happen, but it was sort of a perfect storm when it happened and we regret it.

Griggs said they usually record things and play them back later after they’ve been reviewed and censored. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you view it, Pence’s speech was shown live.

Nothing about the speech should surprise you; after the Giants won the World Series in 2012, Pence was credited with turning around the Giants’ season thanks to a great speech he gave.

Hunter Pence speech

Pence was so animated during the speech, we might have to call him “T-Bone”!

– “Having an entourage that gives me baths is expensive”

– “Who needs to know how to read when you know what all the presidents look like?”
