All those hours spent slacking on YouTube finally paid off. Here’s this week’s round-up of the best sporting vids.

10. The Portuguese football team got a pretty frosty reception on touching down in Sarajevo earlier this week. Credit to the Bosnian fans though, they knew the one thing that would hurt Cristiano Ronaldo more than booing.

9. This tackle from the Argentinian amateur leagues has to be the hardest legal hit in the history of rugby. A prize for anyone who can go one better.

3. The ins and outs of the Penn State controversy are too serious to be glibly summed up in a single sentence, but this video of PSU students’ reaction to coach Joe Paterno’s sacking is pretty crazy.
