* Rugby Union. The 2017 British & Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand. Lions Head Coach Warren Garland took issue with the way the New Zealand All-Blacks gave his players during the 1st Test, particularly Scrum-half Connor Murray, a good pasting. Steve Hansen, NZ Head Coach, was not impressed with the accusation of foul play; only two New Zealand players had ever been sent off in Test Rugby history, the last in 1967, and defended the conduct of his players as hard but fair. Before the week was over, Inside Centre Sonny Bill Williams became the Third All Black to be dismissed in a Test Match for a head high Shoulder Charge on Lions Right Winger Anthony Watson during the 2nd Test.

* Rugby: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unOGLMoYSqc This advert]] proclaimed England to be the 2011 Grand Slam winners in the six nations. For those not in the know, the six nations is an annual tournament between England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy. A country wins a grand slam when they win all their matches. Trouble is, it was made before their final match against Ireland. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Ireland won by 24-8]].

* Having secured automatic promotion and seven points clear of second-placed Newcastle United with three matches left to go, Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper David Stockdale hit out at those who predicted that Brighton would slip up in the 2016-17 Championship title race, saying "Bottlers? Who’s bottling it now?" Brighton went on to lose their next two matches and [[DownToTheLastPlay concede an 89th minute equaliser]] in the last match to allow Newcastle, who had won all three of their remaining matches, to overtake them on the final day.

* The 1967 Grand National at Aintree went down in history as one of the most bizarre races in British horse racing. Two horses, Popham Down and April Rose, had thrown their riders at the first and third fences, but continued running without them - and with the reduced weight, they were running ahead of the pack. Michael O'Hehir, upon taking over the commentary during the second lap, observed as the racers jumped over Becher's Brook (the sixth and twenty-second of the race's thirty fences) that the riderless horses didn't seem to be interfering with the race. At the very next fence, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tls18p0AYjM&t=80s this happened...]]
-->'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ_JCOgHE2U&t=399s Michael O'Hehir:]]''' Rutherfords lost a bit of ground there, but he's... all right at the turning out of the fence after Becher's, and as they do, the leader is Castle Falls, with Rutherfords along the inside, ''[Popham Down and April Rose suddenly run to the inside of the track just before the next fence, straight into the path of the other racers]'' and he's been- and Rutherfords has been hampered! And so has Castle Falls! Rondetto has fallen! Princeful has fallen! Norther has fallen! Kirtle-Lad has fallen! And The Fossa has fallen! There's a right pile-up! Leedsy has, er, climbed over the fence and left his jockey there! ''[a single horse manages to run around the confused mass of horses and jockeys and jump the fence at the first attempt]'' And now, with all this mayhem, Foinavon has gone off on his own![[note]] Foinavon, a 100/1 outsider, went on to win the race by over thirty lengths.[[/note]]
