November 2013 | Sharapova's Thigh

The touchdown catch you're about to see from Central Florida wide receiver J.J. Worton is absolutely awesome, and it's even more awesome given the situation.

No. 17 UCF trailed Temple 36-29 with just over a minute remaining in the game, when quarterback Blake Bortles heaved a pass from just in front of the 40-yard line to the back of the end zone, and Worton somehow made a ridiculous diving one-handed touchdown catch. UCF kicker Shawn Moffitt would eventually kick a field goal as time expired, and to keep the Knights' BCS hopes alive.

Here's video of the catch, which is likely the best catch you'll see in college football this year:

As I write this, the 0-7 Buccaneers lead the Seahawks in Seattle by the score of 24-7 in the third quarter, because... well, hell, I have no idea. Because the NFL is bonkers?

Well, one of the Bucs' three touchdowns came on a Tim Tebow-esque jump pass from their running back, Mike James, to tight end Tom Crabtree. Yes, a jump pass, from their running back, for a touchdown.

Pinned back at the Redskins' one-yard line at FedEx Field on Sunday, Robert Griffin III (somehow) threw this pinball pass that landed in the hands of defensive end Sean Lissemore in the end zone, resulting in a Chargers touchdown:


RG3 and the 'Skins can shake off that crazy play though, as they were able to beat the Chargers 30-24.

With 14 minutes to go in the Washington Capitals' 7-0 blowout win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night, a wild scene broke out on the ice at Wells Fargo Center:

Ward completed his hat trick by beating Ray Emery at 5:23 of the third period. Eight seconds later, a brawl broke out that included a fight between Emery and (Braden) Holtby. The brawl resulted in eight fighting majors; Emery, who had replaced starter Steve Mason in the second period, received one of them to go with two minors, a misconduct and a game misconduct. 

Four other players -- the Capitals' Steve Oleksy and Alexander Urbom and the Flyers' Vincent Lecavalier and Brayden Schenn -- were given fighting majors and game misconducts.

Emery in particular, went nuts, and punched Holtby in the back of the head several times. Here's video of the fighting:


Crazy stuff, and you'd have to think that Emery, the backup goaltender for the 2012-2013 Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, may be facing a suspension.
