The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium.
Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game.
It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging from the photos.
In many ways, Eddie Hall does not live up to his billing.
Nicknamed 'The Beast', Hall boasts tribal tattoos, a ‘warhawk’ hairstyle and a 28-stone frame (he requires two chairs to sit down). His physical presence is frankly astonishing - but then it would have to be, given that Hall is ranked among the world's top five strongest men. Officially Britain's Strongest Man, Hall has been a mainstay of Strongman competitions for years, making a living by tossing 20kg+ kegs over four metre high walls and lifting 160kg 'atlas stones' onto chest-high plinths.
What is most surprising about this remarkable man, however, is his character. While the above description might call to your mind an air of intimidation and aggression, Hall could not be further from the stereotype. A gentle man with a powerful handshake and an even more powerful smile, the 27-year-old from Stoke-on-Trent turns out to be the most honest and grounded sportsmen I have ever met.

Spartak Moscow fans shoot flares onto the pitch almost hitting the referee and players
A cheeky tennis player pulled off what is being described as the best serve of all time after bamboozling his opponent with speed and sleight of hand. Argentina's Renzo Olivo, ranked outside the world's top 100, was taking on Japan's Taro Daniel in a pro tour match when he sprang his sudden underhand move. Playing on a clay court in Szczecin, Poland, Olivo, 25, stood on the baseline preparing to serve in the traditional overhand motion before quickly tapping the ball over the net using an underhand serve - catching Daniel and the audience off guard. The unexpected shot drifted over the net gently leaving opponent Daniel stood frozen on his baseline unable o react in time. Despite Olivo's quick thinking, it wasn't enough to overcome Daniel, who won the match in straight sets, 7-5, 7-5. The 25 second clip has since gone viral with more than 100,000 views in under two days.

Despite Floyd Mayweather being the one who made numerous statements that outraged most people in the LGBTQ community, folks over it CNN decided to twist the story into Connor McGregor, the loser of the match, actually being the one who offended a lot of people.
McGregor was labeled a racist for using the phrase "boy" towards Mayweather, a phrase which you can hear him use numerous times throughout his career directed at people of all color.
CNN's Libtard reporter also suggests that perhaps Connor McGregor is homophobic, despite it being Floyd Mayweather who actually called McGregor a faggot.
Once again, CNN proves there are incapable of not slandering all white people as racist homophobes.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the richest athletes of all time and he’s not afraid to show off his wealth. The former boxing champion was recently caught on tape piling tons of cash into the back of a SUV. The footage can be seen above courtesy of TMZ Sports.
The reason for the massive cash withdrawal is the grand opening of Mayweather’s Las Vegas strip club, called Girl Collection in Vegas. It will apparently be an upscale club featuring exotic dancers from all over the world and enough cash on hand to put any high roller in his place.
While Mayweather stands to bank yet another $100 million in a potential superfight with UFC superstar Conor McGregor, that combat clash is temporarily at a standstill. Still, that hasn’t stopped “Money” from hyping up the fight and building McGregor’s already meteoric stock.
Until the two touch gloves and exchange leather, Mayweather will have ample time to fund his own Vegas ventures and continue to flash stupid cash.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Conor McGregor during the 10th round of their boxing match on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Referee Robert Byrd stopped the fight as Mayweather pummeled McGregor. Floyd Mayweather jr. now moves his record to 50-0.
Conor McGregor weighed in 3.5 pounds heavier than Floyd Mayweather ahead of their £500million mega-fight.
The Irishman tipped the scales at 153lb, inside the 154lb limit, compared to Mayweather's 149.5lb.
The boxing legend has spent all week insisting that his Irish opponent was struggling with his weight cut.
But McGregor showed no sign of that as he saluted the thousands of fans in attendance.
The UFC star faces a mammoth challenge in his professional boxing debut against the best boxer of his generation.
Fans eagerly awaiting the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor fight got an early treat Thursday. During the sixth inning of the series finale between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers, the benches cleared and a brawl broke out after Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera threw punches at Yankees catcher Austin Romine. It all started in the fifth inning, though, when Tigers pitcher Michael Fulmer hit Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez, followed by Yankees reliever Tommy Kahnle throwing behind Cabrera in the bottom of the frame. But as you’ll see, tempers continued to flare throughout the rest of the game, as the umpires began to lose control.

Tim Tebow drilled by a pitch in the 9th inning of the St. Lucie Mets’ 5-1 loss Saturday.

I guess Tim Tebow "turned the other cheek" after that helmet drill.

Hundreds of fans of football league champions Besiktas and domestic cup winners Atiker brawled on the pitch late on Sunday in the Black Sea city of Samsun, following Atiker's 2-1 victory in the Turkish Super Cup. Supporters of Atiker, the main team from Turkey's central Anatolian province of Konya, chanted slogans accusing Besiktas and its fans of links to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). Fans of Besiktas, an Istanbul side whose supporters include a vocal leftist element, responded with a song aimed at the rival fans from Turkey’s conservative heartland. The two groups rushed onto the field and fought after the final whistle.
A graphic video of the last moments of life for Russian freestyle wrestler Yuri Vlasko, murdered at the end of June in the Russian Republic of Buryatia, has appeared online.
The footage shows one of the attackers stabbing Vlasko, who was wearing a red track suit, in the chest among a group of people standing on the shore of Lake Baikal.
As the wrestler falls to the ground, a second attacker hits him on the back of his head with an iron bar multiple times. The two men, both of whom already had criminal records, continue to mercilessly beat Vlasko until he could not move anymore.
Both men have been arrested and are reportedly facing life sentences.
At the end of July, following a wrestling tournament in the republic’s capital city of Ulan-Ude, Vlasko and his friends were visiting Lake Baikal near the village of Goryachinsk, where the conflict occurred.
Vlasko was a two-time European junior freestyle wrestling champion and also won a gold medal at his last tournament in Ulan-Ude.
He was buried last Monday in the village of Osa, where he was born.
