Jim Nantz roasted for failing to pronounce ‘meme’

The Sports Daily Jim Nantz roasted for failing to pronounce ‘meme’ Jim Nantz may be one of the best broadcasters of all-time, but he still has no idea how to pronounce “meme” correctly. Nantz attempted to explain how TBS commentator Grant Hill was going viral for his funny reaction to nearly getting trampled by Michigan’s Moritz Wagner, and he referred to what will likely result from the sequence as a “hall of fame me-me.” Given that the game was a blowout, and there wasn’t much to talk about, those on social media immediately began discussing Nantz’s botched pronunciation.

Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale shouts out Kobe Bryant after game-winning shot

The Sports Daily Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale shouts out Kobe Bryant after game-winning shot The No. 1-seeded UConn Huskies were ousted in the Final Four for the second consecutive year, as the team lost a thriller in overtime to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 91-89. Notre Dame guard Arike Ogunbowale was the hero on the night, as she scored 27 points, and none were more important than the two she racked up via a stepback jumper she drained with roughly one second left in overtime. Ogunbowale was guarded closely on the play, but she used her dribbling skills to buy some...

Ron Gardenhire ejected in first game as Tigers manager

The Sports Daily Ron Gardenhire ejected in first game as Tigers manager The Tigers’ first game of their 2018 campaign had a controversial ending, and it resulted in new manager Ron Gardenhire getting ejected in his inaugural game with the team. Gardenhire had received 73 career ejections up to that point — all with the Twins — and he added to that total after giving an umpire a piece of his mind during Friday’s game. It happened in the bottom of the 10th inning, with the score tied at 10. Nicholas Castellanos was on second base at the time, and...

LOOK: Von Miller caught a massive hammerhead shark

The Sports Daily LOOK: Von Miller caught a massive hammerhead shark Broncos linebacker Von Miller is known for wreaking havoc in the backfield during games, but he also bides his time by partaking in different hobbies off the field. Most recently, that happened to be fishing. And, similar to when he’s on the football field, Miller came out on top. He recently went fishing off the shores of Miami Beach, and he caught some fish. Arguably his best catch, however, was a nine-and-a-half foot hammerhead shark (via TMZ Sports). That’s quite the catch. And to his credit, Miller and his...

Malcolm Butler believes Patriots would’ve won Super Bowl had he played

The Sports Daily Malcolm Butler believes Patriots would’ve won Super Bowl had he played Now that Malcolm Butler is no longer a member of the Patriots, he’s finally been able to talk about the loss in Super Bowl LII. Specifically, why he was benched, the possible effect it had on the team. Butler still hasn’t elaborated on exactly why the team chose to sit him for every play, sans one special teams snap, which does indicate that it was probably for a disciplinary reason. Belichick benched Butler, who played 97 percent of the team’s snaps during the regular season, and...

Umpire in Pirates-Tigers game gets drilled in face by ball

The Sports Daily Umpire in Pirates-Tigers game gets drilled in face by ball Being a baseball umpire is a tough job. Not only are they subject to criticism from fans behind the plate, but they also often hear players mouthing off as well. Furthermore, they’re also placed right in the middle of the action, with 100+ mph fastballs coming right at their grill. Sometimes, they get beaned by the ball, which is what happened to the home plate umpire in Friday’s Pirates-Tigers game. #pirates #tigers umpire gets drilled in the head 🤕 pic.twitter.com/7AiKMAcX9a — David (@das_187) March 30, 2018 Pirates...

Could the Buffalo Bills draft Baker Mayfield?

The Sports Daily Could the Buffalo Bills draft Baker Mayfield? The Bills traded up to acquire the 12th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and it sure looks like the team is set to draft a quarterback. Given that they signed A.J. McCarron — who literally no other teams wanted — it appears that he’ll be the short-term solution at quarterback, while the team grooms its quarterback of the future. The Bills are apparently showing heavy interest in Baker Mayfield, having met with him again, for what was the fourth time, according to Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated. Buffalo’s...

Usain Bolt has funny comment about racing against Braves’ The Freeze

The Sports Daily Usain Bolt has funny comment about racing against Braves’ The Freeze Usain Bolt doesn’t want to square off against The Freeze, and understandably so. The star of Braves’ games — as he’s often more entertaining than the team itself — has made a habit of leaving potential challengers in the dust. He lost only one race last season, and it’s probably because the challenger had such a large head start. Look at what he did to this poor guy on Opening Day. That led to speculation about Bolt possibly being in The Freeze costume. I’m convinced they...

36-year-old accountant turned goalie saves day for Blackhawks, makes for amazing story

The Sports Daily 36-year-old accountant turned goalie saves day for Blackhawks, makes for amazing story The Chicago Blackhawks found themselves in a difficult situation during Thursday’s game, when the team lost Anton Forsberg and Collin Delia due to injuries. Lucky for them, they had an emergency goalie in tow. The potential problem was that he had never seen action in an NHL game up to that point. And oh yeah, he’s a 36-year-old accountant. Scott Foster entered the game in the third period of the game, and he was flawless. He stopped all seven shots he faced. Both of the Chicago...

The Sports Daily Odell Beckham, James Harrison weigh in on Le’Veon Bell’s ‘villain’ Instagram post Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell turned plenty of heads after he played the victim role in a social media post. Bell stated that  “it’s so hard to be a hero in a city that paints you out to be a villain,” which is interesting, given the amount of money he’s made during his career so far. As for Steelers fans, they’ve long been supportive about well. The only time they began wavering was when he began holding out last season. Fans blasted Bell for his “victim”...

Steve Kerr likens Giannis Antetokounmpo to Kevin Durant

The Sports Daily Steve Kerr likens Giannis Antetokounmpo to Kevin Durant Giannis Antetokounmpo, with his size, strength and athleticism, has an unbelievably high ceiling. The sky is the limit for him, and when it’s all said and done, he could develop into one of the greatest big men to ever play the game. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr knows a thing or two about athletic big men, getting the benefit of having Kevin Durant — who some believe is the best in the game today — on his team. Kerr was asked about Antetokounmpo before Thursday’s matchup, and he made a...

Bulls have comically bad offensive possession (VIDEO)

The Sports Daily Bulls have comically bad offensive possession (VIDEO) The Bulls are so bad that it’s often hard to tell if they’re intentionally tanking, or are just legitimately getting outplayed. That was the case during Thursday’s game against the Heat, when they missed four shots on the same offensive possession. To their credit, they hauled in a number of offensive rebounds on the play, but Bobby Portis missed two easy tip shots from point-blank range. The funniest thing about it all was that the Bulls ended the possession in the most fitting way possible. Cameron Payne committed a traveling...

Kevin Durant curses at referee, gets ejected (VIDEO)

The Sports Daily Kevin Durant curses at referee, gets ejected (VIDEO) Kevin Durant returned to action on Thursday night after previously being sidelined with a rib injury, but his temper got the best of him, and he didn’t even survive the first half. Durant drove the lane late in the second quarter, and appeared to have been fouled by a Bucks player on the sequence. No foul was called, though, and Durant was furious about it. He then began shouting at an official, with some profanity involved as well. That earned him a double technical. Kevin Durant straight up ejected...

Sidney Crosby bats puck out of air for amazing game-winner (VIDEO)

The Sports Daily Sidney Crosby bats puck out of air for amazing game-winner (VIDEO) The Devils battled hard against the Penguins on Thursday night and went into overtime with the score deadlocked at 3. Unfortunately for them, Sidney Crosby is still arguably the greatest player in the world, and he decided to put an end to the game — quickly. Crosby, just 19 seconds into overtime, scored a goal that required an extremely high level of skill. He beat Devils goalie Keith Kincaid with a wrist shot, but it clanged off the post. Crosby wasn’t fazed, though, as he casually...

Check out Markelle Fultz’s improved free-throw shooting form, suggesting shoulder injury healed

The Sports Daily Check out Markelle Fultz’s improved free-throw shooting form, suggesting shoulder injury healed The Sixers nearly ruined No. 1 overall draft pick Markelle Fultz’s shooting form by playing him with a shoulder injury earlier in the season. After a few games, and some awful free-throw attempts that were difficult to watch, the team finally listened to critics and rested Fultz. That appears to have been a good idea. Fultz returned to the court earlier in the week, and looked like a completely different player. He appeared to be healthy, and, most importantly, his shooting form looked fluid. Check...
