Last month, a video of a Jacob Tucker pulling off a series of spectacular slam dunks became a viral hit. What made the video so striking is that Tucker, a guard for Division III school Illinois College, is white and under six-feet tall -- both traits that aren't typically associated with the dunk.
The purpose of the video was to convince the public to vote Turner into the NCAA's annual slam dunk contest. The public obliged, and on Thursday night, he justified their decision by winning it.
The NHL certainly hasn't lost its fight: San Jose Sharks defenseman Jason Demers was trying to punch Dallas Stars center Steve Ott when linesmen Brian Mach jumped between the two of them in an attempt to break up the fight.
For doing his job, the official got a knuckle sandwich right in the jaw. The incident took place on Saturday, and so far the NHL has declined to take action against Demers for the ref-slugging, which did appear to be completely accidental. Only in hockey.
The Super Bowl hasn’t always been so super. In fact, throughout the ‘80s and into the first half of the ‘90s many of the games were blowouts the likes of which are rarely seen during the regular season.
We’ve had better luck with Super Bowls lately, and this year’s match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers is about as even as can be.
So maybe Sunday’s game will end up being a classic. But for now we can count down the five best Super Bowls ever played.
