Mississippi State players tumble over fog machine in entrance fail (Video)

In a move almost straight out of “Little Giants,” Mississippi State’s football team had a failed entrance onto the field for their season-opening game against Jackson State on Saturday. Several players ran into and tumbled over the fog machine that’s supposed to make the team look mysterious and intimidating as they run out of the tunnel and onto the field. Instead, the sequence made them look more like a slapstick routine than a football team.

Luckily for the Bulldogs, the failed entrance was not a premonition of what was to come; they hammered Jackson State 56-9. Below is a fantastic look at the pileup:

Pirates rookie Brock Holt’s number on wrong side of jersey (Picture)

Brock Holt was playing in just his third major league game on Monday when he got the rookie treatment … from the clubhouse equipment manager. The rookie second baseman’s number was placed on the wrong side of the front of his jersey. The stats for the former Rice product through three games: two hits, one walk, one RBI, and one jersey fail.

We’ve seen players with misspelled last names, or even no name on the back of the jersey, but I believe this is the first time we’ve seen a misplaced number.

The Pirates didn’t find it at all amusing:

Phew, good thing they determined the mistake was made by humans. I was worried some jersey-altering ferrets had gotten loose in the Pirates’ clubhouse.

Replacement referee struggles to announce penalty in Patriots-Giants game

The NFL’s replacement referees have been a disaster as a whole, and their collective performance during the preseason can be summarized by the above video.

Referee Don King attempted to announce penalties during the second quarter of the Giants-Patriots preseason game, but he struggled mightily. The Giants were punting to the Pats, and there apparently were some infractions on the play.

Good luck interpreting this convoluted explanation:

“We have fouls by both teams during the kick,” said King. “We have illegal shift by the kicking team. After the kick (pause) … we have a 15-yard penalty (motions to Patriots). Chosen to re-kick (points to Giants) … five-yard penalty.”

After a minute to rethink things, King realized how ridiculous he sounded, so he decided to interrupt play as the Giants were getting set to punt because he wanted to try his explanation a second time.

“Correction on the reporting of the foul. Both teams were … both uh … both fouls were on the kicking team. Five-yard penalty.”

And this guy may be officiating regular-season NFL games? Only in America.

Chris Bosh missed on high five with Ronny Turiaf (Video)

Chris Bosh went 6-for-13 in Miami’s Game 2 win over Oklahoma City on Thursday, and that shooting percentage was actually much higher than his high five percentage. As you can see in the video above, Bosh completely airballed on a high five with Ronny Turiaf.

But that’s not all.

As The Basketball Jones points out, Bosh also missed on a high five with Dwyane Wade. Here’s a gif via CJ Zero:

Alex Ovechkin falls over boards during line change (Video)

The Capitals may have beaten the Bruins 2-1 to tie their first-round playoff series at two, but Alex Ovechkin was the big loser for this embarrassing moment. Ovechkin was trying to hop over the boards during a line change, but it looks like he lost his concentration, along with his balance, and tumbled over. The hits keep coming for Ovi, who has only scored one goal in the series.

Fail: Idiot fan got jersey with Mario Lemieux’s name misspelled (Picture)

Mario Lemieux’s career accomplishments now officially consist of: 1033 assists, 690 goals, 10 All-Star Game appearances, 3 Hart Trophy honors, two Stanley Cups, and one horribly misspelled jersey.

How can you possibly call yourself a fan and not know how to spell the damn man’s name properly? Major effing fail. What an embarrassment. I don’t even know what a Lemiexu is. I’d much rather see another lewabosh before I see another disgrace like this.

Vick Ballard falls while attempting 40 at combine (Video)

Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard was trying a wee bit too hard to make a good impression at the Combine Sunday. Attempting to run the 40-yard dash, Ballard took a few steps before stumbling out of the gates. He ended up crashing into a tripod and taking it out.

Hey Vick, we know the Combine is pressure-packed, but ease up and chill out bro. You try too hard you end up crashing and burning. Ballard’s final 40 time was a 4.65, which placed him toward the bottom of the running back list.
