GIFs are the new "in" thing in sports. Well Guyism's World of Isaac may have just created the best on of this year's NBA playoffs. Mike Miller lost his shoe in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and threw it to the bench. He later hit a big three-pointer to help the Heat force a Game 7.
Carl Pettersson was lining up his second shot on the Par 4 No. 5 at Merion Golf Club at the U.S. Open, when something unusual happened.
Well, it's not that unusual, because I've seen drives sprayed all over the place at the local metro Detroit courses, particularly from myself... Brandon Crick hit an errant tee shot from the No. 2 hole, and it actually hit Pettersson's ball during his swing.
Pettersson was allowed to move his ball back to the original spot and ended up with a par.

Stephen Jackson may be best known, to Detroit Pistons fans, as being one of the main culprits of the Malice at the Palace in November 2004. Well yesterday, Jackson was on ESPN's Highly Questionable and talked about that night. Jackson said, "It felt good to punch a fan." Jackson later said that he regrets his decision, because it cost him $3 million and almost cost him his job.
Gregg Popovich and Doris Burke don't have the best coach-reporter relationship in sports history, and last night was no different. I give a ton of credit to Burke, because she still hasn't backed down. Coaches like Popovich, John Tortorella and Bill Belichick are known to not say much during press conferences and interviews.
Does this tick you off? Personally, I love it.
