The weekly YouTube top 10
Can we get a drum-roll… this week’s round-up features Letterman, the Gooch and a fake Sara Carbonero.

EVERY WEEK WE count down the best of sports from internet land. Let us know what we missed in the comments. And let’s be careful out there.

10. On Sunday night, the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA championship, beating the Big Three of the Miami Heat.

Since then, not unlike county champions drinking in every parish for the week afterwards, they’ve been on a well-deserved lap of honour.

This appearance on the Late Show, helping Dave Letterman with his nightly top-ten countdown is a highlight. Particularly Dirk’s delivery at the end.

9. Speaking of Nowitzki, ESPN’s excellent Sport Science deconstructs the German’s fadeaway. I can do this.

8. This goal has been billed as the best in America’s MLS. Like, ever.

7. Setanta Ó hAilpín and Zach Touhy have a chat in Melbourne.It’s good to learn some new lingo: selling candy anyone?

6. The US Open gets underway today and we cannot wait. Take a walk with us around Congressional in our hole-by-holde slideshow and read John Duggan’s betting advice.

And to get you in the mood, here’s US Tour pros Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson,  Hunter Mahan and Ben Crane acting the goat.

5. We all saw the crazy pictures from Vancouver after the Boston Bruins took the Stanley Cup back across the border and fans rioted downtown.

Now check out his guy taking a gas canister in the groin. You’re welcome.

4. There was a fair bit of debate on our Facebook page about this goal from Colm Cooper last weekend for Crokes, which had us all oohing and ahhing, and then counting steps.

Amongst all the comments, someone sent us this effort from last season.

3. Now that he’s retired, Shaq has time to sit with friends… like Guillermo the security guard from the Jimmy Kimmel Show.

2. Who says we never bring you Spanish comedy sketches? Here’s Iker Casillas arriving home from training to girlfriend Sara Carbonero.

1. Andy Murray warmed up for Wimbledon next week with a win at Queen’s and this mickey-take of a trick shot.

And here’s one for luck: Brad Pitt as Billy Beane in the new Moneyball movie.
