Everything Else

Video: Fan gets cozy with woman at cricket matchups

Cricket fan

Cricket fans can be extremely enthusiastic about their teams, but one particularly cheeky fan showed us during a match this weekend that he is passionate about something else as well.

A fan at a recent Middlesex cricket match was caught by TV cameras getting extremely, let’s call it cozy, with the woman he was sitting with. The woman leaned over to say something to the people sitting in the row behind her and got a nice “hi, how ya doin?” from the gentleman sitting next to her.

It’s hard to tell what was in that man’s cup, but I don’t think he needed anymore of it.

‘Free Dave Portnoy’ trends after Barstool Sports founder suspended from Twitter

Dave Portnoy

A hashtag saying “Free Dave Portnoy” trended on Twitter Friday after the Twitter account for Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy was suspended.

Portnoy has 2.5 million followers on the platform and is an influential figure. Here is how his account looked when it was suspended:

There was some speculation that a Twitter post led to the issue:

There was also speculation that there was some sort of inside publicity stunt after a photo of Portnoy and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey was shared.

An hour or so after the suspension, Portnoy’s Twitter feed started to repopulate. Portnoy also announced that he was “back.”

Maybe there really was nothing going on at all.

Trainer falls Ripple dog

A handler tripped and fell, nearly wiping out its dog during a competition at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Saturday at Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, N.Y.

Trainer Dan Haddy was handling a Boston Terrier named Ripple during the agility competition. After Ripple exited the tunnel, Haddy tripped and fell, nearly landing on the dog.

Even though Haddy took a spill, he was able to get back up and recollect. Ripple, who was tearing up the course prior to the mishap, was able to complete the event.

In the end, Verb the Border Collie won both the 20″ Class and had the best overall time at 31.30 seconds. Verb won the 2021 Masters Agility Champion trophy for the second time in three years.

Aaron Carter says he has mild concussion after boxing loss to Lamar Odom

Aaron Carter Lamar Odom

Aaron Carter suffered some negative medical effects from his fight with Lamar Odom.

Carter posted a note on Instagram after his fight Friday night to say he suffered a “mild concussion.”

Here is what he wrote in the post:

“Mild concussion but f— it, it was worth it! Thank you (Celebrity Boxing) and Lamar Odom for such an amazing fight I appreciate you giving me your best! Thank you!” (post edited for profanity by LBS).

Carter and Odom fought in a Celebrity Boxing match at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J. Odom won via second-round knockout (watch here).

Carter seemed to enjoy the experience of having his head handed to him. He was fighting a man nearly a foot taller than him and couldn’t overcome the difference. It especially didn’t help that he gassed himself out early.

Carter’s post is included in the tweet below.

After winning the event, Davis put on cowboy boots and a hat and posed for the cameras:

Video: Fan jumps over railing at Concacaf Final

Fan jumps railing

Something very concerning happened after the U.S. beat Mexico 3-2 in the Concacaf Nations League Final on Sunday night in Denver.

CBS Sports was running its postgame show live on set from Empower Field at Mile High, Denver, Colo. In the middle of the show, there was a bizarre incident. A fan ran behind the TV hosts and leaped over a railing.

It’s unclear how much of a drop there was over the railing. We also have no idea what led the person to make the leap. Here’s hoping there wasn’t anything too serious going on.
