If you forced me to rank things I trust most in sports, it would probably go something like this.Steph Curry from the free throw lineJordan Spieth from 10 feet with the tournament on the lineDez Bryant’s handsSo when Bleacher Report recently posted on Dez badly dropping some passes recently, my interest was piqued.Dez dropped it ? (via @fishsports) https://t.co/KDQjedKEJY— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) August 2, 2016Apparently Dez’s was too.“What (Bleacher Report’s) dumbass don’t understand is the speed level was sky-high,” Bryant told Mike Fisher of 105.3 the Fan in Dallas. “About 60 [MPH]. If it was set on the regular level I woulda caught all of ’em. But that’s not the purpose of the drill. But I guess before their dumbass decides — you can write ‘dumbass’ three times — before they decide they want to make a joke, they need to get all the facts before they come after somebody.”Haha, “you can write ‘dumbass’ three times” is one of my new favorite quotes. And he has a point. I’m not sure people properly realize how smoking fast these footballs are flying. Dez catches quite a few of them from a distance most NFL players (much less humans) would likely whiff them all.The most preposterous thing is not that he dropped a couple but that he even got a hand on any of them at [email protected] attacks JUGS machine. Move closer. Miss a few. Adjust. Succeed.

As a part of their tradition, the University of Alabama baseball team hosted a Christmas party for kids at Sprayberry Education Center.The team hosted the Christmas party on Nov. 27 and does this every year instead of a banquet. It gives children at Sprayberry an opportunity to get to know the Tide’s baseball team, something a lot of fans wish they could have. Walker McCleney, an Alabama baseball player, said the event isn’t just special for the kids, it’s special for the team too.“It’s a huge deal for us as players to see these kids,” said McCleney. “And it brightens up our mood and it brightens up their mood for the holidays and it’s just a cool experience to have with these kids.”Mitch Gaspard started this tradition when he became the baseball coach in 2008. While he’s no longer the head baseball coach at Alabama, the tradition has lived on.
