Australian surfer Mick Fanning fought off a shark attack during the J-Bay Open in South Africa on Sunday. Not surprisingly, the competition was suspended following in incident. The entire ordeal was captured on live television.
Fortunately, Fanning was uninjured. Here’s a video of the event as it unfolded.
Following the incident, Fanning explained: “I was just sitting there, I was just about to star moving, and then I felt something grab, just get stuck in my leg rope. I instantly just jumped away, and then it just kept coming at my board. I was kicking and screaming.”
The 2015 NFL season is nearly upon us, which means one very important thing — fantasy football.

With that in mind, here are a few suggestions for the season:

During the final lap of the rain-delayed Coke Zero 400 NASCAR race, driver Austin Dillon—behind the wheel of the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet—was involved in a spectacular crash that sent his car flying into the catchfence at Daytona International Speedway.
While Dillon walked away from the accident, debris from his car flew into the stands hitting a handful of spectators. According to reports, fours fans were treated at the track, while one spectator was taken to the hospital.
The incident occured as Dale Earnhardt Jr. took home the checkered flag.
The next time you're at a Boston Red Sox game, keep an eye out for the guy in the blue and red shirt. While his intensions may be pure, his exuberant reactions resulted in havoc for his fellow fans.
We're guessing this was his checklist:
1. Do not actually help player.
2. Knock phone from girl's hand.
3. Knock beer onto girl's face.
The Chicago Blackhawks' What’s Your Goal? campaign made one little girl’s dreams come true. The girl named Cammy, who was born unable to walk or speak, has a love for hockey. Her “goal” was to score a goal with the help of her favorite player, star defenseman Duncan Keith.

• If you haven't checked out Gigi Hadid's swimsuit pictorial on SI, you should. Like you really, really should.
• Jaguars faithful set the record for practice attendance with 6,214 fans on Saturday. Wonder if they can get that many for the last game of the season?
• Some truly sad news. Tyrone Moore Jr., the half-brother of Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Roddy White, was shot to death outside a James Island, S.C., nightclub early Saturday.
• Mike Tyson posted an epic #selfie from the Preakness. The photo (see above) included Tom Brady and Kliff Kingsbury.
• Speaking of selfless, check out Tom Hanks with fans at the German Cup finals.
• An 89-year-old Frank Broyles will officially “retire” at the end of June — concluding a 55-year association with the Razorbacks.
• For just the second time in collegiate baseball history, a team turned two triple plays in a single game Friday.
• Watch as a cameraman is hit with a stray tire during the Norwegian Rally Championship. He seems much happier about it than we would be.
• Watch as a young fan switches out his foul ball souvenir and gives the decoy ball to a pretty girl behind him. Smooth kid. Sma-ooth.
During the Carolina-Miami game, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill threw a pass that was tipped, and then tipped again, and again, and again…and again…and… you get what we're saying.
Lakers guard Xavier Henry threw down a monstrous dunk over Pelicans rookie center Jeff Withey at the Staples Center on Tuesday. It was a thing of beauty.
The Giants' Hunter Pence crushed a ball during the first inning of yesterday's game against the Rockies. The ball was estimated to have traveled 476 feet, making it the longest home run in MLB this season.
The Atlanta Braves' Elliot Johnson was interviewed about hitting a triple following yesterday's game against Cleveland. Johnson's response seems have come straight out of a NASCAR PR manual as he thanked numerous sponsors, his car, and his crew chief.
Well, I don't know if I've ever seen this happen before. White Sox bench coach Mark Parent was ejected by the umpire before Sunday's game even started. While exchanging lineups, Parent can been seen making a comment to crew chief Jerry Layne, who responded by telling Parent to hit the road.
The Braves' Chris Johnson was spotted on the bench during this weekend's game against the Cardinals sporting bubble gum on his hat, thanks to his pranking teammates. The best part is that he discovered the gum in the reflection of Reed Johnson's sunglasses and immediately began to beat him on the head.
We can all thank Fox Sports 1 for this boxing gem. On Monday night Danny Jacobs stepped into the ring with Giovanni Lorenzo and did this to Lorenzo's face in the third round to win the WBC Continental Americas middleweight title.
Sideline reporter Pam Oliver was in the wrong place at the wrong time during warm-ups for yesterday's Colts-Giants game. Colts back-up QB Chandler Harnish threw a tight spiral that landed on the side of Oliver's face. Ouch!
Harnish has since apologized.
Would like to take this time to apologize to Pam Oliver, for the bad pass to the face.. Be expecting flowers in the mail soon! #ToughLady— Chandler Harnish (@C_Harnish) August 19, 2013
