Kaiserslautern striker Philipp Hofmann produced most of the most spectacular misses of recent times against fellow Bundesliga 2 side Union Berlin on Wednesday night. The 21-year-old had the goal at his mercy from just two yards out but somehow contrived to lift the ball agonisingly over the bar. Luckily for Hofmann his side were still able to secure maximum points from the encounter with a 1-0 win, otherwise he could have well been in hot water with his manager Kosta Runjaic.
Japan’s Mt. Ontake erupted late Saturday morning, sending plumes of ash into the surrounding area. Several people were reported injured from smoke coming out of the volcano that rests between Nagano and Gifu prefectures. Hikers caught this amazing and scary footage of their experience near the belly of the beast.
Thursday’s practice session at Red Bull Rampage 2014 marked the last opportunity for riders with the canyon gap incorporated into their run to overcome their fears and launch the 72-foot-long expanse. Tom van Steenbergen was the first to go, inspiring five more riders to take their shot at it including Kelly McGarry, who overshot it and catapulted himself over 100ft. He walked away from the crash, a little worse for wear, but with all parts moving and most importantly with his sense of humour still intact. Nuts! Shout out to Ben Brakenridge for the submission.

This building, located somewhere in Poland, is so short that the only thing Andy had time to do after jumping was deploy his chute. Even many of the best BASE jumpers have a 100 meter rule – as in, they won’t jump anything lower than 100 meters – so you can probably imagine how much precision, timing, and confidence a jump like this requires.
We all make mistakes, even when they are staring us the face. Footage shows the moment the motorist pauses briefly in front of traffic lights at a crossroad before driving through a red light. Almost instantly, a police officer to her left activates their blue lights and chases after her. It is not clear whether the driver intended to ignore the rules or not, but it couldn’t have been worse timing.
