Bucks Player Almost Shoots in Wrong Basket: I love the reactions of the announcers, coach Jason Kidd and courtside fans after Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders comes tantalizingly close to eternal sports infamy by driving with the ball to the wrong basket.
Giants Win World Series: The San Francisco Giants are World Series champions for the third time in five seasons after defying the odds for a road team in Game 7 and beating the Kansas City Royals 3-2 at Kauffman Stadium. Michael Morse gave the Giants that lead with a fourth-inning single and the San Francisco bullpen, most notably Madison Bumgarner, pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings to deliver another parade.
Denver Broncos Fan Disappears During Game: A 53-year-old man attending his first Denver Broncos game with his son and two friends disappeared during halftime and has been missing for four days. Paul Kitterman told his son Jarrod they'd meet up back at their seats when Jarrod went to the restrooms at halftime. Paul Kitterman never showed up and has been gone since. He had $50 in cash, no credit cards and no phone. "He's absolutely nowhere to be found," said friend Tia Bakke, who attended the game with him. "It's been the longest, [most] miserable three days of our lives."
Minor League Hockey Player Suffers Gruesome Cut from Skate: A minor league hockey game in Peoria, Illinois, came to a halt Saturday after a player fell on an opponent's skate and suffered a deep and potentially life threatening cut to his thigh. Trainers and players from both teams raced to help Huntsville Havoc center Justin Cseter, bringing towels and fashioning a tourniquet out of a broken hockey stick. Dave Eminian of the Peoria Journal-Star penned this memorable lead: "The Peoria Rivermen were gaining momentum, had just scored to build a 2-1 lead over the Huntsville Havoc on Saturday at Carver Arena. And then hockey gave way to horror."
PGA Exec Calls Ian Poulter 'Little School Girl': PGA of America President Ted Bishop, upset by criticism of past Ryder Cup captains Nick Faldo and Tom Watson by Ian Poulter in his new book, called Poulter a "lil girl" and "little school girl" in social media posts. Bishop wrote on a Facebook post that athletes with "lesser records or accomplishments in a sport never criticized the icons" and then said of Poulter, "Really? Sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess. C'mon man!" He later deleted the posts and apologized. Poulter's response: "Is being called a 'lil girl' meant to be derogatory or a put down That's pretty shocking and disappointing, especially coming from the leader of the PGA of America."
