The Netherlands Kicked An Absolutely Insane Goal, Beats Australia 3-2

The Netherlands and Australia had a really, really exciting soccer match in the World Cup (and I’m saying this as a non-soccer enthusiast). The two teams really went back and forth but if the game  could be summarized in two gifs, they’d be these ones. First there was this Australian penalty shot where the goalie got juked out of the stadium. Then there was this obscene shot...

Reds Pitcher’s Attempt To Break His Bat Is Just Hilariously Awful

Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto obviously disagreed with a strikeout he recorded in last night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. But if there’s one thing he wishes he could take back, it’s probably not the at-bat. It’s probably the way in which he expressed his disagreement with the called third strike. Out of all the ways to show your dissatisfaction with a call, this has...

The US Patent Office Has Cancelled The Washington Redskins’ Trademark Registration

So, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has cancelled the Washington football club’s trademark registration. While the legalese will likely dull some of the shock waves surrounding the decision (and no change to the name is likely coming soon), make no mistake; this is a huge step towards the inevitable changing of the team’s name. The USPTO reached its ruling by examining...

San Marino (CA) Mayor Resigns After Throwing Dog Poop in Neighbor’s Yard

Tim Cahill Submits Bid For Best Goal of the World Cup With This Volley

Tim Cahill answered the Netherlands first goal extremely quickly with one of the better goals of the World Cup so far, with a laser off of a volley to tie it up for Australia at 1-1. The goal couldn’t have come at a better time and it is no surprise that Cahill was the scorer. I am quite sure that RVP was watching and got a case of deja vu. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Brewers using funny attack ads to get players into All-Star Game

The Brewers are hoping to get a couple of their guys into the All-Star Game this year and instead of your typical “here’s why you should vote for our guy” ads to help make that happen, they’re going the “here’s why you shouldn’t vote for their guy” route.
