<img width="620" src="" /></br></br> We often hear about the baseball or hockey Gods doing their wicked work high above the field or ice, but on this pitch in England, the soccer (sorry, football) Gods certainly made their presence known. </br></br> <iframe src="" width="620" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <a href="">Crazy wind-assisted goal Thurrock v Romford</a> from <a href="">LJB</a> on <a href="">Vimeo</a>. What could this British amateur league team possibly have done to be disciplined with such an ill-fated own-goal though? Who knows, but that ball was absolutely and entirely redirected in mid-air. It’s almost as if an arm stretched out of the sky and with the swift flick of a finger, returned it like a boomerang, sending it backwards towards the kickers net, only to then topple over the tippy top of his goaltender’s fingers, presenting him with the most desperate and deceptive hope of stopping this thing whose destiny was clearly sitting deep in the back of his net. They were doomed I tell you! </br></br> The only other possibility was the wind…it was very windy that night. </br></br> (H/T: <a href="" target="_blank">Vice Sports</a>) Full Story.(Photo: )

Playful Shots

Phil Mickelson couldn't resist a playful shot at the lawsuit involving Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell. Mickelson is playing in his 10th Ryder Cup, so he's not afraid of a little banter. He was asked on Wednesday if it was unfair to suggest the Americans were not as closely knit as Europeans based on success they have in team matches. Full Story.

One Of The Guys

Rory McIlroy is No. 1 in the world of golf. At the Ryder Cup, he sees himself as just one of 12 players. McIlroy and the rest of the Europeans are clearly tired of hearing how their top players are being targeted by the Americans at Gleneagles. The concept is nothing new. For years, Tiger Woods was seen as the player everyone wanted to beat. Full Story.
