Even though this is from 1972, I’ve never seen it and although it’s almost 30 years past, it still blows my mind.
When Olga performed Korbut Flip at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, it was the first backwards release move ever attempted on the uneven bars.
After the boards displayed a score of 9.8, the audience began to whistle, jeer, stamp their feet, and shout vulgar remarks at the judges in disapproval, believing her score to be too low. However, the judges refused to change her score.
The Korbut Flip on uneven bars is no longer allowed in gymnastics competition because it involves standing on the high bar, a maneuver which is now illegal in the Code of Points.
With winter just around the corner, and the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder, the ski and snowboard season is officially in full swing. What better way to celebrate this awesome time of the year than showing off your great bod in a bikini…even if it is below freezing outside.
There was probably a better place these two could have “hit the bench”. You think they did it on purpose? Well don’t leave me hanging…or maybe that’s the point. Only thing that could make this better is if they had a #94 with the surname Turtle and a #95 with Head.
After the Redskins embarrassing Monday Night loss against Vick and his Eagles, Terrell Owens hopped on the good ol’ Twitter (@terrellowens) and started a small fire. Seems he doesn’t feel that McNabb’s play is worth the $78 million he’s going to receive for the next 5 years. And I guess he makes a somewhat valid argument considering that up through this point Donovan has 11 interceptions to 9 touchdown passes. Anyways, here’s what 81 had to say:
One random Twitter user sent TO this message and photo: “@terrellowens this is in my office & I think its coming down. Ive defended u since 49ers. I’m disappointed”
And this was TO’s response:
He clearly like to get things going. I like TO and I like McNabb but I’m not sure if any of this is necessary. Why go out in the public and make someone feel even worse right after a huge loss like that? The good thing to see is that Vick is back to full form. He’s got legs like he just came out of college. That man is incredible. The Eagles scored the most points in MNF history and Vick became the first player in league history to post at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four touchdown passes and two rushing touchdowns. He was 20-of-28 for 333 yards and four touchdowns and rushed eight times for 80 yards and two touchdowns. That dude is a true baller.
I’m actually a fan of Ron Artest. I know he’s an asshole but he’s also a really good player. He certainly tries his hardest each game. Either way, if you’re a fan or not. You can be the proud owner of an NBA Championship ring for a measly $2…well actually $10 as you have to purchase a minimum of 5 raffle tickets. All-in-all, it’s pretty cool because for one you may win an awesome prize for hardly anything and secondly (and more important) all the proceeds are going to help out children with mental health issues.

The final score of the Lakers 83-79 game seven victory over the Boston Celtics is represented on the side of the ring in scoreboard fashion.

You have to see this amazing kid. He blows me away. He does things on a skateboard that you haven’t even dreampt about. This evil genius does things that I can’t even imagine…he honestly makes me terrified at times that he’ll kill himself. He just put out a full length DVD called the Denver Shop and from the likes of this video, I’m sure that thing will be playing non-stop for a bit in my garage.
Check out this awesome song by rock group Mabel. Coming from the wonderful year of 1978, this song will take you back to a more “radical” time. I don’t know what it is about this jam but I am seriously loving it. This makes me feel young again. Coming home from school, grabbing my deck, heading out to the backyard and just skating the afternoon away. After which, I would grab a Totino’s pizza, ploop down on the couch, watch Rocko’s Modern Life and then maybe play some Twisted Metal Black.
With the leaves changing color and the pumpkins being out and a about, Winter will be here sooner than you think (Walmart already has the Christmas decorations in stock…it’s crazy). Anyways, one of the best things about winter is the snow and one of the best things about the snow is snowboarding. Here is a sweet video of Swedish boarder Niels Schack. The kid is like 17 and is one of the best I’ve ever seen. He’s certainly going to be big….and soon too.
This video was for the Transworld Lose Your Illusion: Skate and Create contest. It takes various skate teams, photographers and sponsors and pits them against one another. This partiicular video is from the Fallen team and features, James Hardy, Billy Marks, Tom Asta, Chris Cole and Tommy Sandoval.
It was filmed in Carlsbad, California by Seu Trinh, Dave Chami, Oliver Barton and Mike O’Meally with direction by Matt Irving, Mike Gilbert, Benny Maglinao and Ty Evans.
It is such a creative video. I would love to see more skateboarding films feature artistic shots like these. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
