Is this heartwarming? Or is this a sign of "them kids not knowin which way is up or down with them their noses buried into them cell phones all day?" Eh, maybe it's in between. What it is is Bo Jackson, the only athlete to ever be an all star in both baseball and football, politely explaining his immense sports prowess to a kid who doesn't seem to realize the gravity of the moment he finds himself in. But hey, most people don't have a clue who Jim Thorpe is, so who are we to judge.

It appears that after some tough negotiating Aaron Rodgers is set to lead the Green Bay Packers into another season, yet again. He was able to get his contract reworked so that he has the flexibility to leave the team after this year. Even though the negotiation came to a pleasant enough end, it didn't stop Rodgers from giving the owners of the Green Bay Packers a piece of his mind.

There's nothing quite like seeing someone completely lose themselves in their love for a sport. Especially when it's done so in a functional and supportive way just like the Aussie coach named Ariarne Titmus did when his swimmer ended up taking home the gold medal for the 400-meter swimming race.

Sometimes technology seems to go too far. This humanoid robot thing is just a little bit unsettling. Someone get this dude a contract already.

Jack Nicklaus gave off every impression that he had complete and unwavering confidence when it came to sinking that putt. The guy didn't miss a beat from the time he dropped the golf ball (barely set up), and went on to sink the damn thing. It's as if he didn't even think about what he'd do if he missed it.

When you've already lost the game, why not go for broke and use the power of cheating to give the people what they want. The amazing thing is that this still took a crapload of skill. Where's the horrible 1997 CGI short to accompany bowling achievement like this?

Fernando Tatis Jr. sprung for that highlight reel catch like he didn't have to wrestle with gravity itself for a hot sec. Must've felt too good for words to describe. In the MLB if you're lucky you get one or two of those catches in your whole career. Tatis Jr. definitely won't be forgetting that game.

It's almost as if Costas doesn't really know where the sentence is going to end when he begins talking. He meanders through, trying to find just the right words to deliver this bone-shattering slam. Damn Bob Costas, save some for our dads.

What a way to make use of a water hazard. It may have been a single shot 10 years ago, but damn if that's not a beautiful sight to see. The "ghost bawl" will live in our hearts and memories as some of the slickest putt-putt action that there has ever been.

While this video is clearly a throwback as is evident from the stunning video quality, it's also a haunting testament to the risky business that can be joining the crowd at a golf tournament. There's no backstop around to shield you from those errant golf shots, where things didn't go as planned. The fact that the shank occurs twice really makes you feel it for the crowd.

It was no ordinary day at the Disc Golf World Championships at Fort Beunaventura Park in Ogden Utah. Yep, that's because disc golfer, James Conrad had to go and launch what'll rightfully go down in the history of disc golf as one of the most impressive shots of all time. The crowd absolutely erupts too.

This guy is literally the human version of a rain delay. Also, a moment of strong disapproval over the fact that managers insist on being so infuriatingly stubborn when it comes to not reversing a call after what was clearly a complete misunderstanding.

Clearly, it's because he's such a health nut. Also though, no free plugs. Shoutout to Ronaldo as well for summoning that look of pure and sobering loathing on his face when he noticed those Coke bottles.

The flow is otherworldly. Just sitting back and watching this in action might remind you of your own life moments where everything seemed to work out just as you planned.

Well, he certainly committed. Honestly, props out to him for having the instantaneous presence of mind to not interfere with the game as it unfolded. The dude just bit the bullet. And then he literally took one in the nuts.

Well, Swiss hockey coach, Christian Wohlwend is the living, breathing definition of "honest" in human flesh. This quick little video segment is from back in 2018 when he was still a coach, and being asked what he thought his team's odds were. Basically, he didn't foresee a bright future for his team.
