Video: Oregon Runner prematurely celebrates win, gets passed at finish line

April 14, 2015

Dumbass. Details from USA Today: During the men’s steeplechase race at the Pepsi Team Invitational, Oregon’s Tanguy Pepiot thought he had the race all locked up. He coasted the last 100 meters or so, waving to the crowd, getting them all riled up for his win. He didn’t see Washington’s Meron Simon coming up behind him. As Pepiot waved to the crowd and smiled for the cameras, Simon closed at…


Trio Rent Golf Carts, then Wreck Them to . . . Make YouTube Video?

Jackson, Michigan is not far from the BadJocks Bunker. In fact, we’ve driven by the Cascades Golf Course in the past, so we know right were it is. Not much happens here, so it was surprising when a reader sent us this story. Our only disappointment is that it appears that none of the carts ended up in the water, as one is known to attract the other. It’s one…

The loser goes home and the winner advances in the league tournament and…

Most golf courses have water hazards of some kind: rivers, streams and lakes. And usually they are deep enough to hide golf balls. Sometimes local kids spend evenings and weekend mornings up to their knees (or deeper) finding these lost white balls and, shop maybe, resell them for a buck or two. Then there are these four guys from Michigan who got all the way to a course outside Philadelphia–Aronimink…


Arkansas Fires Petrino: “Engaged in Pattern of Misleading and Manipulative Behavior”

According to the Razorback’s athletic director Jeff Long, it wasn’t so much that football coach Bobby “Evil Kenevil” Petrino had a girlfriend on the side. It was the fact that he lied–apparently repeatedly–about having a girlfriend on the side, did not disclose that 25-year-old Jessica Dorrell was his mistress when she beat out 159 other applicants for a job on his staff; or that he had given her $20,000 for…

Certainly, Austin O’Such of the Yavapai College baseball team (AZ) doesn’t deserve accolades for what he did earlier this week that was caught on camera and featured here as potentially one of the worst cheap shots in baseball history. (Watch original video here.) But death threats? According to YC, O’Such is getting them even though they suspended him from the team and some reports have him transferring to another school….


Video: Devils and Rangers Start Game With Fights – March 19, 2012

March 21, 2012

And the NHL wonders why it can’t attract a wider audience. Look, you can argue that fighting is part of the sport until you’re blue in the face, but only a limited audience really want to see this kind of activity on a regular basis. You fight in basketball, you get ejected. You fight in baseball, you get ejected. You fight in football, you get ejected. You fight in hockey,…
