10. Now this is how you celebrate. With the Oklahoma City Thunder just 14 seconds away from a series win against San Antonio and a place in the NBA finals, Kevin Durant used a timeout to find his mum in the crowd and give her a big celebratory hug. Awww.

9. We think this is real — and if it is, skateboarder Serge Murphy was very lucky to walk away without serious injury. All those YouTube views should help to ease the pain.

8. After Trap and Marco, this man possibly has the most important job in Poznan’s Municipal Stadium on Sunday. It’s FAI kitman Dick Redmond, and here he is doing his thing.

7. Ever wish you had a cool nickname like “The Beast”? Well, when you can lift and hold a 112 kg team-mate like Tendai Mtawarira, come back to us and we’ll consider it.

6. Picture the scene. You’re a 42-year-old journeyman golfer — let’s just say your name is Dennis Miller — and you’ve one putt to qualify for the US Open. Then this happens.

5. Joe Ansbro and Alasdair Strokosch might want to spend a bit of time working on their celebrations. (We would make a joke about Scottish rugby players not needing to celebrate that often but it’s probably best to wait until after Ireland’s NZ tour before we do that.)

3. After last Sunday’s win at the Memorial, it would be way too easy to herald the second (or is it the third or fourth?) coming of Tiger Woods, so we won’t. Let it suffice to say that this is a bloody good golf shot, made even better by the heartfelt fist-pumping. Welcome back, buddy.

2. Nobody does goal celebrations like friend of Marcello Matrone (he tweeted us once, it counts). Here’s the Brazilian’s latest elaborate effort.

1. You’ve seen the video of the “good job” kid, right? Well if you haven’t, let this be a lesson in dedicated support to you. Doesn’t change the fact that the Heat suck, though.
