Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was videobombed by a sneaky young fan during a postgame interview after Sunday's overtime victory over Miami.
The boy simply peeked out Noah and nonchalantly moved his eyebrows up and down before sliding back out of camera view behind Noah. Kid makes his big break on television like it's no big deal. Well played.

Vancouver Canucks goalie Eddie Lack deserves some credit for not getting down on himself after giving up a goal from center ice to Calgary Flames forward Brian McGrattan during the second period of Saturday's game.
McGrattan's goal broke open the scoring, but Lack redeemed himself by not allowing another goal. Lack was named the #1 star of the game as the Canucks beat the Flames 2-1. Kudos to Lack for fighting through some adversity with a solid performance.

In UK soccer action Saturday, the East Lancashire Derby match got off to a slow, but funny, start when fans of the visiting Burnley Clarets released a rooster onto the pitch in the opening minute against the Blackburn Rovers.
The rooster was designed to mock the owners of Blackburn, Venky's, an Indian company that specializes in processed chicken.
It only took about a minute for security to chase the rooster off the field. This rooster wasn't nearly as skilled at evading security as that rooster in Israel.
In the end, Burnley won the match 2-1.
Oklahoma State Cowboys guard Marcus Smart has become known as a player who flops to get foul calls, so when he came to visit Iowa State for Saturday's Big 12 college basketball game, the Cyclones student section decided to taunt Smart with some massive flopping of their own.
The Iowa State fans coordinated it pretty well, executing the mass flops when Smart was introduced before the game and when Smart came to the free throw line during the game.
Smart still led the Cowboys with 27 points, but Iowa State came away with the overtime victory.

Dallas Cowboys and Duke basketball. Two teams everybody loves to hate. It's the perfect match.

New York Mets center fielder Curtis Granderson got a little too touchy-feely with St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Scott Moore during Friday's spring training game in Florida. Granderson gave Moore a full pat down on his lower back, upper legs and rear end while leading off of first base.
Not sure why Granderson felt so comfortable with Moore, as we couldn't find an obvious connection between the two players, but it certainly was uncomfortable for viewers to watch. He may have to change his last name to "Grabberson" after this. Keep your hands to yourself, Curtis.

In men's college volleyball action Tuesday, Cairn University junior hitter Ryan Garven laid out Hannibal-Lagrange College freshman Trey Biggs with a spike right in the face.
We're pretty sure Biggs was physically OK after this, but it may take longer for his bruised ego to heal.

The cowboy hat was thrown onto the ice by Conrad Shindler, a Texas A&M alumni. To his credit, Shindler was able to negotiate with an off-ice official to get his hat back after the game.
As for Seguin, he also had 2 assists for a total of 5 points in the Stars' 6-1 victory over the Canucks. Needless to say, Seguin was the #1 star of the game.

In Thursday night's Big West men's college basketball game at UC Santa Barbara, a fan ran onto the court and screamed in the face of visiting Hawaii coach Gib Arnold before being ejected from the arena.
This is something that can not be allowed in sports. Fans need to behave themselves at sporting events and stay out of the action. Hopefully this UCSB student will be punished appropriately.
DISCLAIMER: Should be needless to say, but Holdout Sports does not condone this behavior.
Griffin had 20 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists, and the Clippers blew the Lakers out of the Staples Center with a 48-point victory. Wonder what Kobe had to say about this one.
