He’s still a good boy.
Just leave him be
I’d hazard a guess that sporting events around the world are delayed more often by dogs on the field than by rain. It happens in cricket, baseball and especially in soccer. It also happened this weekend in a Gaelic football game in Ireland, but no one seemed too bothered by it.
A packed house showed up to watch neighbor rivals Cavan and Monaghan in the Ulster football quarterfinals on Saturday. The spectators also included an adorably stocky mutt, who ran onto the field in the 22nd minute, much to the delight of the crowd.
The players were content to get a bit of a breather and didn’t try to capture the four-legged intruder, leaving him to trot around the field for over a minute.
Every twist in the tale produced roars from the fans, as well as some delightful commentary from the announcers: “He’s one of the quickest men in the game but I’m not sure he’ll be able to keep up with this impostor.”
He’s still a good boy.
While you were watching Game of Thrones
The Raptors and Bucks needed two overtime periods to decide Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, with Toronto finally coming out on top, 118–112, to make it 2–1 in the series. Giannis had a ridiculous 23 rebounds (a career high) but only scored 12, while Kawhi had 36 points in 52 minutes.
Even though it didn’t decide the game, the play of the night was this ridiculous dunk by Kawhi in the second OT.
Deontay Wilder is a bad, bad man
WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder said before his fight against Dominic Breazeale that he wanted to literally kill his opponent, and he came damn close. Wilder leveled Breazeale with a truly vicious knockout punch in the first round.

Thanks for clearing that up
