Liga MX Club Stops At Nothing To Find Pitch-Invading Dog

What a start to the 2020 Clausura season for Atlético San Luis. After battling to a 0-0 draw with perennial power Tigres at Estadio Universitario on opening day, Atlético San Luis defeated Cruz Azul 2-1 last Friday to place itself at the top of the table alongside Chivas and Pumas. 

What’s more, Atlético San Luis used the victory to scout a potential new signing. In the 27th minute, Tunita made her appearance in front of an announced crowd of 21,670. They were all enthralled with what they saw.

CONMEBOL Absolutely Nails 2020 Copa América Mascot Selection

South American football is beloved worldwide for the passion and pageantry of its fans, the rhythm and technique of its players, the narratives and legends of its past and, of course, the good boys that frequently make their way onto the pitch and into our hearts.

Who can forget the time that dog made an incredible goal-line stop in the Argentine third tier? 

Watch Adorable Bear Play Soccer, Frolic In Snow

The weather in Boulder, Colorado, where The18 is headquartered, has been nothing short of miserable this week. Since a snowstorm blew in on Sunday, the temperature hasn’t gone above freezing, with windchills dipping below zero.

Justice Was Immediately Served After Portsmouth Fan Swings At Police Horse

There may have been some big Carabao Cup headlines Tuesday, like Tottenham losing to a team three leagues lower than it and Arsenal’s youngsters thrashing Nottingham Forest, but there was an entirely different kind of story that grabbed my attention. An intoxicated Portsmouth fan was caught on video attempting to fight a police horse after the Pompey side lost to Southampton 4-0 and was knocked out of the Carabao Cup. 

Here’s the video:

Little Feral Kitten ENDS André-Pierre Gignac’s Career

When whoever’s in charge of the worst competition ever created sits down to look at their social media numbers, they’ll see that the most liked/shared/commented/engaged with post of the 2019 Leagues Cup was a cat. Hopefully they’ll then decide to make the 2020 edition strictly cats. 

You see, it’s a helluva fine boi.

PSA: Austin Bold FC Giving Free Admission With Farm Animal

Promoting a club in the United Soccer League can be tricky. It’s always an uphill battle for any lower-tier sports team, especially in soccer. But Austin Bold FC has what may be the greatest (or maybe worst, we’re not sure yet) promotion we’ve ever seen to get fans into the stadium.

Guy Bites Another Guy While Joyfully Oblivious Dog Trots Around The Pitch

Last Saturday, Sporting Cristal defeated Sport Huancayo 2-0 in the Peruvian Primera División, but the game was marred by some Stephen King tomfoolery in the 39th minute.

With Cristal already leading 1-0, the club’s striker, Emanuel Herrera, chased a long ball over the top while clashing with Huancayo defender Luis Maldonado. Luckily for us, we’re also simultaneously treated to a classic moment in South American football: there’s a good boy flying down the wing in hot pursuit of the action.
