Great Googly-Moogly: How the two Broncos end zones photo from Super Bowl 50 is going viral

As you may have noticed, the above tweet is generating a lot of buzz online today. I posted that three days ago. It was a photo I found here.

Late Thursday night and early Friday morning it was brought to my attention that the tweet above was getting a lot of retweets and likes. It also was being featured in articles by many major sites across the web. This story started circulating even though the supposed error was already fixed.

Watch: The essence of the Warriors’ 20-0 start in one Vine

Here is a Vine from Stephen Curry’s performance during the Warriors’ win last night, putting their record to 20-0.

Look at all the elements on display.

  • Andrew Bogut doesn’t even box out but instead jogs back on to defense immediately after the pass, knowing that Curry will make the shot.
  • Look at the dejection in Kemba Walker’s slumped shoulders when he sees Curry wide open.
  • Stephen Curry has so much time, that he checks his footing to make sure he’s shooting a three-pointer.
  • Hornets coach Steve Clifford is just disgusted with what just transpired.
  • All five Hornets are in the paint hoping for a rebound. Frank Kaminsky is looking for someone to box out but his man is already going back on defense.
  • Klay Thompson watches and nods, knowing the Warriors just made the Hornets pay with the extra possession.

The Warriors are dominating. They are demoralizing the opposition. They are 20-0. That’s their season in a six-second video.

 

Oakland A’s pitcher Sonny Gray lets fans decide what jersey he’ll wear for his start

With the A’s starting their second half of the MLB season at home against the Twins, starting pitcher Sonny Gray asked fans on Twitter what jersey he should wear.

Starting pitchers usually get to decide what jersey the team would wear for their starts. The A’s this season have three options for home games: White, gold or green.

The fans responded to Gray on Twitter with the majority siding with gold.

Oakland A’s are ready for some midnight madness

I’ve never heard of a baseball game starting that close to midnight. Or maybe it’s a long 13-hour wait. But it sounds like a great promotion!

Cavaliers fan tries to prove that Derrick Rose’s game-winning shot should not have counted

One of the best things about Twitter is reading tweets from fans who have conspiracy theories or can’t accept reality. Following Derrick Rose’s game-winner against the Cavs, I saw this tweet from a Cavs fan trying to prove that the inbound took too long. I found this very funny.

Of course, the first mistake here was that the timer started when the whistle blew, not when the inbounder received the ball. Clearly this fan doesn’t know the rules. The whistle only means that the game is resuming, not to start the clock.

Also, the five-second rule can’t be precise. It actually is on the discretion of the referee who is making the count. And if you look at the referee, he is at about 4.75 (give or take) in his count.

I’ve watched every highlight video of the Warriors’ huge comeback on YouTube

You know what I did last night? I stayed up on YouTube and watched the Warriors’ comeback win on YouTube. Over and over again, I watched every single highlight video of the game.

I watched Stephen Curry’s miraculous three-pointer over and over again.

I sat in awe and just could not believe that the 20-point comeback happened. That the Pelicans would freeze up late and the Warriors were able to claw their way back in. I was in amazement seeing a team that was tested and they delivered. I saw the future MVP blossom. A saw a team with high expectations meet those expectations.

Peter Gammons is in midseason form with his butt-tweeting

Peter Gammons is one of the most respected writers in the baseball world. He has a Hall of Fame vote and he actually received the Spin Award for the Hall of Fame. He’s been around the game a long time and I value his perspective on so many things.

But one thing that Gammons isn’t very good with is Twitter. There will be times during the season where he will butt-tweet and never realize it. As you can see above, he did that this morning. The best part is the reaction from his followers.
