Video: Tennis Player Loses Point for Mocking Opponents Grunting

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….

The Real Question: Who Took the Fun OUT of Baseball?

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? In the wake of Harper’s announcement, sports pundits seemed to agree that…

Stephen Beiber goes to prom with Redskins Cheerleader

Winner! HS Boy Takes Washington Redskins Cheerleader to Prom

Or he could just sit back and live out his life being the guy…

Video: Japanese WWE Electric Barbed Wire Death Match

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.

BadJocks Update: HS Basketball Player From Sudan Claims He Didn’t Know He Was 30 Instead of 17

Wait, what? You may have seen this story earlier about Canadian high school basketball phenom Jonathan Nicola who played for Catholic Central Secondary School in Windsor. At 6’9″ and a powerful build, Nicola dominated other teams, despite this being his first year playing in North America. He was so good, in fact, that his coach/sponsor thought he might go pro! But, as it turns out, the advantage was more one of age…

Two HS Volleyball Coaches Show “Fifty Shades of Grey” to Team on Road Trip

For anyone who hasn’t lived under a rock the past few years, the plot for the popular erotic romance novel turned movie Fifty Shades of Grey reads like this: . . .

High School Baseball Coach, Players, Suspended Over ‘Tickling’ Hazing Incident

So, two things right off the bat: I do believe that the best hazing policy is to say that there should be no activity that separates out the freshmen (or new to team) players from the rest of the team. As soon as you say, “We’re going to take the freshmen and . . . ” you’ve started down the road to hazing. And second, there has to be more…
