With the the regular season starting this Thursday (8:30 PM EST) with Farve’s Vikings taking on the NFL champ Saints in New Orleans this is bound to be an awesome season. Here are some facts about the league that you may not have been aware of.
You may have seen the animated gif of this floating around but it in no way compares to the awesomeness that is this video. I wish we could watch sumo matches like this in real life. Maybe in short order we’ll be able to use our “smart phones” (that you can’t even talk on) and augmented reality to watch E. Honda take on the Grasshopper.
I love the old skate videos…back when they were still fun to watch and entertaining. They weren’t full of stupid pranks and Knoxville-crotch humor. This short video from Tim and Eric has a bunch of cool skate tricks. This makes me feel like a teenager again…happy days.
For the typical American, soccer (football?) is not normally on their radar. But with the FIFA World Cup in full swing down in South Africa there has certainly been a good deal of buzz about the sport. Especially with both of the USA games controversial draws.
With that in mind we thought we’d help out the general population and give you a visual guide to understanding some of your World Cup teams.
Anyone that was watching the FIFA World Cup today surely witnessed one of the most unfortunate goals of all time…that is if you’re an England fan, or Robert Green. This has got to be one of the worst fails in World Cup history. I feel really bad for him, I’ll bet he never hears the end of this. For us here on the left of the Atlantic though, this was the best possible thing that could have happened. Go USA!!!
Too bad for the English the ball had a little too much…wait for it…English on it. I’m thinking it will be a long time before they’re able to live this one down. If the first game had this much excitement maybe the next month won’t be too bad…and maybe soccer will catch on over here. At least this way it’s similar to NASCAR or Jersey Shore, you watch it to see the wrecks and crashes.
This is just an insane video of a very lucky skateboarder. Had he not been wearing a backpack he could have been in for some serious damage. It’s amazing that not only was he wearing the pack, but also that he got caught the way he did.
I don’t speak French but there really are no words for this anyway…just watch.
They come from all walks of life and carry all manner of arms. From the hot to the practical. From the AK-47 to the rifle. Take something so quintessentially masculine as a gun and match it up with something so feminine as a…female and what have you got? A sight of pure awesomeness only rivaled by that of (Sir) Chuck Norris’ remains of the day.
During a slow game the heat on the sidelines can quickly become more entertaining then what is happening on the field. Here are the best examples of mascots getting it on MMA style…no matter how unnatural it seems.
Indian’s Slider vs. the Red’s Gapper
He gives him a nice little thumping towards the end.
Southern Miss’s Seymour the Eagle vs. Alabama’s Big Al
It’s a bit long and pretty staged but impressive nonetheless.
Eagle vs. Chicken
But then a weird thing happens…a frog jumps in…and then a dog?!?
