Preston Knowles Dunk Fail (Video)

UConn made history Saturday night when it pulled off the seemingly impossible: five wins in five days in the best conference in America.  As expected, their game with Louisville came right down to the wire, thanks in large part to the three-point shooting of Preston Knowles which kept the Cardinals in the game.  That same Knowles, however, may have had the most embarrassing moment of the night in the first half.  Check out the Preston Knowles dunk fail video:

He had to have been fouled, right?  Everyone assumed UConn guard Donnell Beverly clipped Knowles’ foot on the way up, until an overhead replay showed that he wasn’t touched.  Just tired legs, maybe?  That didn’t seem to be a problem for Kemba Walker (19 points, 3 steals) and the rest of the Huskies, who were playing in their fifth straight game as compared to Louisville’s third.  UConn’s Big East tournament run has bumped them from a No. 6 seed to a No. 2 seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest edition of Bracketology, and they’ll certainly be a team to keep an eye on when The Dance begins.

Video: Andre Iguodala Dunk Fail

Sixers forward-guard Andre Iguodala is about as talented a player one can be without being a superstar.. He’s played, and played well, for USA Basketball in the FIBA World Championships. Including this season in which he’s missed some games due to injuries, Iguodala has played in all 82 games five times in his seven years in the NBA. He’s long, athletic, and he finished second in the NBA Dunk Contest in just his second season — a contest many believe he deserved to win. But Tuesday night against the Hawks, Iguodala had an embarrassing moment on a break away dunk attempt:

What might be better than the miss is the play-by-play guy’s pronuciations of Iguodala and “embarrassin’.” I realize there are differently levels of broadcaster, but shouldn’t a basic requirement be an ability to speak well?

Rangers Center Dale Weise Gatorade Squirt Fail (Video)

I guess you can say it was just one of those nights for New York Rangers call-up center Dale Weise. As if it wasn’t bad enough that he had a goal waved off when the refs determined he kicked it into the net, someone played a prank on Weise when he returned to the bench. Or at least it certainly looks like a prank to me. If not, he really did have a rough night. Check out the Dale Weise Gatorade fail video, courtesy of Deadspin:

Antoine Walker Free Throw Fail (Video)

Antoine Walker just wants to make some money.  He filed for bankruptcy about six months ago so he’s looking to resurrect his NBA career in some way.  Walker recently signed a five-figure contract with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA D-League.  In his debut Wednesday night, Antoine scored 13 and supposedly looked solid considering how out of shape he is.  There was no Walker Wiggle, but there was an embarrassing free throw.  Check out the video of Antoine Walker airballing a free throw, courtesy of Deadspin via YouTube user outsidethenba:

We’re told Walker also missed by about three feet on one of his infamous three-point attempts (of which he missed all three), so obviously there’s some work to be done.  Give him some credit for getting back after it, I guess?

Video: MMA Fighter Backflip Epic Fail

One could argue that everyone loses in an MMA fight.  Most of the time even when you win, you lose.  If you go three rounds with a guy and get your face pummeled enough that you have to immediately report to the hospital following the fight, you’re losing something even if you win.  If you can’t pull off a celebratory back flip and the result is a six-foot free fall onto your back, you lose even more.  Check out this MMA fighter backflip fail video, courtesy of Sportress of Blogitude:

I guess this guy needs to add the top-of-the-cage backflip to his next training regimen.  Either that or he should probably stop trying it, because that wasn’t even close.

Donald Trump Hair Wig Fail Video from Monday Night Football

The Donald was a special guest of Bob Kraft to watch the Patriots-Jets Monday Night Football game at Foxboro. At one point ESPN went to a shot of the owner’s box to show Kraft, former Pats linebacker Tedy Bruschi, and Donald Trump watching the game. The Donald had no clue that the camera was on and neither did his wig. Otherwise that raccoon rug would have been on its best behavior instead of flapping around in the wind. Check out this awesome video via Jimmy Traina:

He looked like Richard from Tommy Boy with that thing blowing around. You would think a billionaire could at least afford some decent hair plugs, right?

SMU Fan Zach Line Poster Fail

Imagine you’re a student at your home stadium, pumped up and excited to watch your team play a huge game on national television. You decide to get decked out with a shirt, button, and everything. Heck, you even decide to make a special sign depicting your love for the team’s starting running back. After said player scores a touchdown late in the game, the TV cameras decide to show YOU! of all people on national TV. But then imagine in your big moment in front of the cameras …

Whoops! Your poster is backwards! Somehow I think Zach Line will demand better of you. Sorry Miss Mustang, better luck next time.
