Nobody likes losing. Even the most gracious among us still burns a little inside when she comes up on the wrong side of a final score. But not all losses are the same. Letting your kid beat you in H-O-R-S-E every once in a while only mildly stings. A good, solid clobbering?when you were vastly outplayed can sometimes be easy to brush off. Heck, a moral victory against a heavy favorite might even send you out for some celebratory ice cream post-defeat.But there are some losses that leave a pit in your stomach for days. Losses that feel like theyll stick with you forever. Not your run-of-the-mill buzzer-beaters or the times you came up short on an opponents otherworldly play. Nah, these are the real dark and twisty losses -- not just that you lost, but the way you lost.Take, for instance, the San Francisco Giants loss on Saturday night. With the game tied 6-6 in the 10th inning, San Francisco reliever Santiago Casilla tripped midpitch, stumbling down the front of the mound and giving the Padres a walk-off balk win. An extra-innings contest decided by a spike caught in the dirt? Just brutal. In fact, a walk-off balk is probably the worst possible way to lose a baseball game.Which got me thinking: What are the absolute worst ways to lose? And what are some of the most unfortunate losses weve seen in recent years?I think the most obvious of all crushing losses has to be the Chris Webber game. You all know how it went. With Michigan down 73-71 in the final seconds of the 1993 NCAA title game, Webber attempted to call timeout but his team had none remaining, and the ensuing technical foul clinched the win for UNC. The Tar Heels may have won anyway, but Webber will forever wonder.But lets get to something a little more recent. Just last week, in fact, when the USGA bungled the handling of a penalty in the U.S. Womens Open. Brittany Lang and Anna Nordqvist were tied on the second hole of a three-hole aggregate playoff when Nordqvist disrupted one or two tiny grains of sand, grounding her club in a fairway bunker. USGA officials didnt learn of the infraction until later during the hole -- and only due to super slo-mo, zoomed-in replays shown by high-definition television cameras. Nordqvist wasnt informed of the two-stroke penalty she received until after shed hit her third shot on the final hole, but Lang was told before she hit her third shot.The two were still tied when the penalty strokes were applied, so there are no guarantees that Nordqvist would have come back to win it if she had been alerted sooner. But she would have had the opportunity to play aggressively on the final hole, and Lang likely wouldnt have elected to hit a conservative shot with a sand wedge instead of going for birdie with the lob wedge she had initially grabbed. It was a terribly unfair way for Nordqvist to lose, and likely a somewhat unsatisfying victory for Lang (especially after USGA President Diana Murphy repeatedly called her Bethany, instead of Brittany, during the trophy presentation).Losing because of a rules violation like that might be even worse than a walk-off balk. Ill never forget the story of high school pole vaulter Robin Laird. In 2010, her successful vault in the final event of the night won her team the league championship, but her score was disqualified and the title was lost because she was wearing a friendship bracelet. The opposing teams coach, Mike Knowles, pointed out the tiny string bracelet on Lairds wrist after the winning jump was made, ensuring that the meet would be decided not by merit, but by a technicality.Its unfortunate for the young lady, said Knowles, whose team won after he reported Lairds jewelry infraction. But youve got to teach the kids that rules are rules.Id argue teaching good sportsmanship is even more important.Teams have suffered heartbreaking losses because their fans prematurely celebrated, because a set of replacement refs fouled things up, and because no one really knows what the hell constitutes a catch in the NFL. Teams have ended up on the losing side of things because of a terribly ill-timed face-mask penalty, a lack of discipline, and celebrating before crossing the finish line.All terrible ways to lose a game, to be sure. And the worst part? Theyre all caught on tape, to be replayed over and over again. Most of those unfortunate athletes seemed to take their failures in stride. After all, were told that terrible losses can make for good character building -- you know, learning to lose gracefully and all that.Not all of us are cut out for that losing gracefully stuff, though. After more than 30 years on this earth, Ive sort of given up on it. Some of us are destined to throw bats at rec league softball games, yell at refs making eight bucks an hour, and agonize for years over a late interception that cost your team a playoff win in flag football.All Ill say is, thank goodness my losses never make the Not Top 10.***Ryen Russillo joins this weeks Thats What She Said podcast to talk about the radio balancing act of being interesting but also authentic, opinionated but genuine. I ask him what its like to run into athletes hes been critical of on the air and which pros hes got a beef with. We also chat about his circuitous route to a career in sports media and his continuing search to find work-life balance in an industry that demands so much focus and drive.I also ask him about the transition from years with radio partner Scott Van Pelt to new co-host Danny Kanell. And we trade stories from ESPYS week, our first time meeting in Chicago, and company rooftop parties at Cubs games.Plus, a walk-off grand slam to lose a game, and the worst possible food to bring on an airplane.

In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Aleix Vidal Jersey .

Lucas Digne Barcelona Jersey .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Aleix Vidal Barcelona Jersey . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months.Ahead of this weeks Premier League showdown, Rod Studd recalls the night when Phil Taylor and Adrian Lewis produced the greatest match. The Power faced his former protege in the semi-final of the 2013 Grand Slam of Darts and together they compiled a record-breaking 32 maximums as Taylor completed a famous 16-9 victory.This high-quality clash is considered the best of all time and Taylor and Lewis will meet again in the Premier League this Thursday in Exeter, live on Sky Sports 1. Rod Studd watched from the commentary box while Taylor traded 180s with Lewis and looks back on a magical match in 2013... Relive the 2013 Grand Slam semi-final between Adrian Lewis and Phil Taylor Taylor had Lewis had both averaged well over 100 when they had met in the World Matchplay final that summer, so so there was this great sense of anticipation when they collided again that November in Wolverhampton.Phil was enjoying a lengthy winning streak and seemed nigh on unbeatable, but Lewis had become his great rival and had started to beat his old mentor once or twice on television. I think we were all expecting a great match, but nothing like what actually unfolded. It was mind-boggling.We kind of got the inkling that something special might be in the air when Taylors first throw was a 180. In fact, he hit two 180s in the first leg, and then went 2-0 up. Lewis then came back with a couple of 180s to make it 2-1 and it developed into a really high-class tit-for-tat tussle. It became an addictive repetition of 180s, you just wanted more and more.dddddddddddd Every 180 took you further into fever pitch. Rod Studd They were exchanging one leg after the other, with neither player being able to gain supremacy, and they were both playing incredible darts. The 180s just kept on coming and it became ludicrous. I think we had moved past 20 in total when Wayne Mardle famously said: Its literally laughable.It became an addictive repetition of 180s, you just wanted more and more. Every 180 took you further into fever pitch. At this ridiculous rate of heavy scoring - and Phil had two finishes of 167 and 160 - you just got carried away on a crest of a wave. I know the crowd did as well, along with everyone watching on television. The Power pullled away with a typical display of ruthless finishing It carried on like that until Lewis led 8-7 and then Taylor tapped the turbo, put on the afterburners, and ended up winning 16-9. The fact that Phil won quite easily on the scorecard did not detract from the greatest game of darts ever played on television. Phil himself said it was the best ever game seen on TV. He has played in some pretty amazing matches, so thats got to be the ultimate compliment, if the greatest of them all thinks that.Adrian ended up averaging 111 and Phil averaged 110, while Lewis had 18 maximums and Phil had 14. The combined 221 average of the two players has never been bettered. The quality and the relentless standard of it makes it the most memorable game ever played. Taylor embraced his former pupil at the end of the match At that time, 32 180s was a record in a PDC match, but Gary Anderson and Lewis broke it in the final of this years World Championship when they fired in 34.Watch Taylor and Lewis share the oche again on night five of the Premier League this Thursday, starting at 7pm on Sky Sports 1.
