June 14, 2016

The popular ice-based sport of curling has joined the big leagues! No, not in popularity (although likely it will be the highlight of the next Winter Olympics) but in controversy.  And it’s not steroids or deflated balls, but it does involved brooms which might dramatically alter the game.

June 9, 2016

So, there’s a professional wrestler (assuming he’s a pro because who would do this for free, right?) named Joey Ryan who has invented–and possibly perfected–a finisher move called the Boobplex.  Yes, you read that right. And it’s exactly what it sounds like: he gets behind a female wrestling opponent (yes, apparently in this age of equality, men can wrestle women for money), grabs them by their breasts and flips them…

Video: Tennis Player Loses Point for Mocking Opponents Grunting
June 1, 2016

Tennis is another sport that has lost fans because of stupidity like this. In a match between Gonzalo Lama and Robin Haase, Lama grunts loudly every time he hits the ball. At one point during the exchange, Haase also grunts, but the referee claims he is doing it to mock Lama so he loses the point. Haase then tries–unsuccessfully– to argue that his grunting was no more offensive than Lamas….

Earlier this year, Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper wore a hat that read “Make Baseball Fun Again” and proceeded to explain that his mission this season was to do just that: bring fun back to Major League Baseball.  And, as laudable as that is, the real question was never asked: who took the fun OUT of baseball to begin with?

We’re not sure what grades Stephen Bieber (no relation to Justin) gets at Old Mill High School (MD), but with the kind of hustle he showed in figuring out how to get a Washington Redskins cheerleader to go to prom with him, we have a feeling you’re going to be hearing more about this kid in the future. Or he could just sit back and live out his life being the guy…

May 3, 2016

Don’t really have a lot of information about this video, other than it involves two lady wrestlers in some kind of death match. Oh, and the ring is surrounded by electrified barbed wire.  Fake, probably, but still pretty cool special effects when they inevitably hit the wire.
