Hockey Streaker Lands Cold

I have no idea where this was shot, but it's becoming a popular video on youtube, as it should be. It's pretty hilarious.

Not only is it already funny because... well, it is a streaker... on ICE. But it gets better when the streaker does a face plant while trying to skate across the rink, hockey stick in hand.....not once, not twice... but 3 times!

No worries. This isn't graphic. (Unless of course you get queasy at the site of hairy men doing nose dives on to hard surfaces!)

I also love how the referee doesn't even try to stop it. As if this thing happens often. Ohhh those crazy Canadians! (who knows, this could have been Tampa for all I know!!??)

"One Tree Hill" Gets More Ridiculous

It astounds me how soap opera's get so outrageous. Just when you think they have no more story line, no more crazy turns to make, no more "come back from the dead" surprises, they just keep topping themselves and DO come back with something else.

One Tree Hill was once a pretty good teen drama about basketball and high school love/drama. (after all love and drama are the same right? ha) But just watch the clip below, and tell me this isn't the funniest drama bit in recent memory. Maybe it's just Joel McHale and his "Soup," but this is great TV. It's too outrageous.....

Oh, and don't worry. The real-life Dan is doing OK and has a real heart. My friend Rhiannon saw him at The Happy Ending in Hollywood a few weeks ago.

Family's Water Goes Up In Flames!

You can't watch this without saying two things:

1: Holy Crap!

2: Where's a lighter so I can check to see if I might be drinking gasoline!

This is absolutely insane. These folks in Colorado have flammable water in their home due to a natural gas leak. Not cool. This deserves a "sure to blow your mind." Or should it??... does this happen often?

Xavier Coach Was Basketball Prodigy

Check out this excellent retro clip from ESPN, approximately circa 1982, when they interviewed current day Xavier head coach Sean Miller, who was practically a Harlem Globetrotter at the age of 12!

Is This A Raccoon Or Freddy Krueger's Cousin?

I'm always a fan of animal humor. Check out this raccoon as it scrounges around with it's hand claw. If I were hanging out in the woods and saw this out of nowhere I'm pretty sure I would pee my pants. "A little creepy" is right! Oh, and I'm pretty sure this is me while watching the NCAA tournament, but instead of nuts i'm looking for the PIP button on the remote or reaching for popcorn.

Woman Faints While Being Interviewed On TV

The interviewer doesn't really seem like the friendliest guy in the world, kind of uncomfortable to watch. But I'm not sure if it was his fault this chick faints mid-sentence. "..open to annnny coaaalllaaggeee...."

And what kills me is this dude's reaction! While she does a face-plant into the sand and the ABC guy tries to help her... he just kind of looks down into a psyched out stare with his hands in his pockets! He's probably just wondering if he is being punked....

The 'Home Run' Of 'Heart-Attack' Burgers

What you see to the left is not your average sized burger. Although it may look smaller in the picture, it is in fact over 5 pounds worth of meat that can feed an entire family of four.

The burger is part of a new menu that the West Michigan Whitecaps baseball club (Class A minor league team affiliate of the Detroit Tigers) is offering at their ball park.

Now we've all seen our "heart-attack on a plate" from time to time, but I'm pretttty sure this one takes the cake!

The "Fifth Third Burger" (dubbed because the Whitecaps' home is Fifth Third Ballpark) is 5/3 pounds of grilled hamburger topped with tomato, lettuce, nacho cheese, chili, salsa and crunched up tortilla chips. The buns that hold it together are 8 inches in diameter.

Kind of makes you want to hurl just looking at it. But hey, that's just my opinion.

What I Like About 1980's Music Videos

The beautiful simplicity of it all!

In this classic from 1980, one of my all-time favorites, The Romantics play "What I Like About You" on a plain ole' stage where the foreground and background are both a simple black back-drop. Nothing like a music video showing four dudes playing as if they are by themselves at rehearsal, so unenthusing, but great! Psht...1980...

Best March Madness Commercial Award

This commercial is great. By far the best commercial they've been showing during the NCAA tournament.

I don't want to talk about the Illinois loss versus Western Kentucky. If you read this blog you know I'm a big Illini fan. (And let's not even talk about my big upset pick that didn't quite pan out.) But like MOST Illini fans, I as well am still bitter about that *rigged* 2005 championship game against Roy Williams' North Carolina squad.

This commercial pretty much sums it alllll up for everyone in central Illinois!

Dog Poops Money

That is probably the best headline I have ever had.

That being said, a dog in Apex, North Carolina ate it's owners stash of cash, and a pretty substantial amount at that. So what did the owners do???? You guessed it..... waited for the 'deposit' to come right back!

Is America Turning On Obama?

There is a huge outrage coming out against Obama for multiple reasons. Mainly for simply appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, instead of working on fixing our economy. And because he made a 'small' remark regarding the Special Olympics in comparison to his not-so-mad bowlin' skillz. Did any of this offend you?

March Madness Is A Dangerous Sport

At least during warm-ups... I've heard of being 'basketball minded,' but this is crazy!

I especially find this funny because I am a HUGE Illinois fan. They better get their 'heads' on straight if they want to beat Western Kentucky tonight though!

The Upset To Watch For In This Year's NCAA Tournament


Want to win your bracket this year? It's tough. The more you know about the teams in the tournament, the worse you usually do. However if you want to win, you HAVE to be able to call the upsets. Well friends, i'm here to give you a big one. You can thank me later....

Every year there is at least one lower seeded team to make it all the way to at least the Sweet 16. We watched George Mason make a run, Davidson did it last year, 10 years ago it was Gonzaga. This year, that team will be Utah State. That's right Utah State. The Aggies.

It's a bold prediction. But the Aggies have the best record in the country at 30-4, only behind Memphis. They lead the entire country in field goal percentage at nearly 50%. And don't forget that they are playing a banged up Marquette in Boise, Idaho, not too far from the Aggies home in Logan, Utah. I will not be shocked if the Aggies get past Marquette. The second round game would be a much bigger upset over Mizzou, but I don't find Missouri that sexy like everyone else. I watched an Illinois team completely demolish them and make them look foolish earlier this season. Look out for a hot Aggie squad to take down the Tigers.

Plus look at these bad boys. They just scream "winners!"

Making out on the court after the big WAC Championship win? Hello! Can you say Stud Muffins?!..... Winners.

Gary Wilkinson's fierce face as he's getting ready for the gynormous dunk (Or he got a glimpse of a dude flashing him in the stands behind the basket). That nasty looking face approaching the rim?? Marquette and Mizzou aren't ready for that!.... Winners.

USU head coach Stew Morrill after the WAC Championship. That's right!....... His name is STEW. Any coach named STEW!!???. His team has GOT to be.... Winners.

And oh ya...STEW, went to Gonzaga!......... Winners.

I don't know about you, but I'm going to be rooting for a bunch of good ol' fashioned Mormon boys who have returned from their missions and are still playing college hoops at the age of 26.

The Most Awkward Pictures Of A-Rod Yet

I'm kind of getting tired of writing about Alex Rodriguez. But when he keeps giving us reasons to keep blogging away, how can I deny myself?

He did a photo-shoot for Details magazine the DAY-AFTER he told everyone about his "performance enhancing" drug use. I find these pictures not only awkward....but kind of....well, just weird.

A-Rod, buddy. Just play baseball!

Doesn't this one ESPECIALLY just make you feel uncomfortable?

Sorry A-Rod, you're no model. Just swing a bat, go out with Madonna....do whatever you want to do. Just please! No more photo shoots!

Leprechaun Sightings In Mobile, Alabama

In honor of St. Patrick's day, here is a classic from a few years a back. A story about a leprechaun in Mobile, Alabama. "It could be a crack heaaadd"

I went to school at the University of Alabama. I remember when this story first came out. It was an instant hit with all the students as you can only imagine.

If you get the chance, be sure to click on one of the "remixes" as well. Hilarious.

Everything Is Amazing, Nobody Is Happy

Comedian Louis CK was on Conan a few weeks ago before the show came to an end, going on a rant about how all these things in our lives are amaazzingg, yet no one is happy. This video taken from the show is quickly becoming an instant classic.

I've seen this already but I can't help but laugh and keep going back to it. Things are a little tough for everyone right now, but if you haven't seen this yet, hopefully it helps put things into perspective a little bit.

Why Basketball Players Shouldn't Do The Weather

I say that, but really he didn't do too bad!

Whoever Chris Bosh's publicist is, they are very busy right now. For some reason, not only do we see ads on Facebook promoting Chris's new fan page, but he even went on a Toronto station to do the weather. At one point, it sounds like he accidentally taps the green screen with his hand....other than that, not too shabby!

What Centrum and Strip Poker Have In Common

I guess this commercial was only a 'spec,' but tell me, how in the world did this spot NOT make it on the air??

I love posting funny commercials. Thanks to my uncle for pointing this one out to me. It's a little predictable...but still hilarious.

Doesn't that just make you want to take Centrum for the rest of your life?! Marketing genius.

It's All About Picking Butler!

In your NCAA tournament bracket next week, Butler may look like a sexy pick. But not as sexy as Butler picking themselves.This is from the game last night in which Cleveland State upset 16th ranked Butler 57-54 in the Horizon League championship game. I guess when your team is down by one point with 33.7 seconds left, all that's left to do is pick your nose!

James Franco As Sleeping Beauty

Last I heard James was still taking classes at UCLA. They must not be that entertaining...
TMZ released this photo earlier of the actor falling asleep in one of his classes. I can only imagine the hilarity that ensued from the person taking this picture...especially when they sold it!

Spider Man star turned sleeping beauty

Farts Interrupt City Council Meeting

How ya like that headline?

But then again, who doesn't like bathroom related humor? What makes it so funny though is that it obviously isn't in a bathroom......... but in a city council meeting in Medina, Ohio.

I'm wondering if this was a fart-machine prank. Hey, I used one on my 7th grade English teacher during April Fools Day!

Buzzer Beater Heats Up March Madness

Can you feel the Madness creeping up!? I sure can. March is the best sports month of the year, along with October, and this coming Sunday (selection Sunday) cannot come soon enough. On that note, let's talk about one of the greatest buzzer beaters I've seen in a while. I'm sure you've seen it all over Sportscenter.

I've only been out of school and away from Tuscaloosa for two years, and I didn't even know that Alabama had a player named Anthony Brock. (I'm guessing he's related to Evan Brock, who played for the Tide when I was there) But I can't get enough of this OUTSTANDING shot.

In a year where the Tide finally got rid of Mark Gottfried, (but it took Ronald Steele leaving for them to come to their senses) it's nice to finally see a positive smudge pop up within the program's massively disappointing year. It really stinks that Bama won't go dancin' this year, but highlights like this helps things a little.... a little......

Brock lost his grandmother and just had returned from her funeral, driving through the night to make it to Knoxville in time for the game... only to make this unbelievable game winning 3-pointer! It's always great to beat Tennessee! Roll Tide!

Who Wants Some Kool-Aid!

The Kool-Aid man is definitely one of the creepiest, most unrealistic, crazy dumb ad campaigns in the history of television. But that's exactly why it is perfect for satire and is drainingly hilarious. (Yes, I did just make up a word)

I ran across a site dedicated to the Kool-Aid man and it's satire. Check it out for a good laugh. They even sell merch. Ohhhh Yaaaaaaaaahhh!!


Here are some snippets as well. One of them includes the BEST All-Time moment in Family Guy history!

Does Anyone REALLY Know What Is Going On With A-Rod?

The world O' sports has been dominated recently by T.O. and A-Rod. The news of Terrell Owens is pretty well expected and accepted. I don't think any of us were surprised to see that Jerry Jones finally let him go. And c'mon, it's T.O. He's always in the news.

But does anyone TRULY know what the heck is going on with Alex Rodriguez???

It all started yesterday when news broke that he had a cyst in his hip that was being looked at; surgery being a possibility. ESPN was reporting this, but little did we know that the source was his brother. Let me say that again, BROTHER. Brother???? Did we even know he had a brother? I've never heard of him, and neither has my source....Deadspin.com.

Then reports came out today that he was in fact going to have the surgery to get rid of the cyst and to fix his torn labrum, sidelining him for up to 10 weeks.

About an hour later, another report came out that that the surgery was going to be more complicated than what first thought, and that he would miss anywhere from 2-4 months. Again, the only source being his *brother*. No one had evidently contacted the Yankees for any information.

New York beat reporter Peter Abraham did talk with the Yankees and has now reported that Brian Cashman is putting a hold on the surgery. ESPN's Jayson Stark also said that Cashman was shocked by the news, because Rodriguez hadn't been complaining of any pain whatsoever. So basically the team expects A-Rod to play through the pain.

There's the story as of now. Thanks for reading the long semi-rant. But I just want to know what is happening! No one can figure this out.

Here is Deadspin...

"So at this point, no one can figure out what is actually happening. ESPN News is sticking by the brother story, while also adding that the ball club is leaning toward no surgery and running clips of his agent, Scott Boras, saying they will wait and see. I'm not sure whose call it would be, but I'm guessing it's not up to A-Rod's brother."

What do YOU think?

If you play fantasy baseball, where do you draft him? Do you still expect Alex to put up big numbers this year?

Yes, that's right. I am a HUGE fantasy baseball nerd. Surprised?

One Of The Coolest Commercials Of 2009

And one of the coolest sports commercials I have ever seen!

It's amazing how realistic they make game characters these days. Plus, I already like Tim Lincecum, the 23 year old 5'11" 170 lb. FREAK who won the NL Cy Young last year. AND Randy Johnson makes a cameo. This is an instant classic in my book. Hilarious.

Bizkit The Sleepwalking Dog Is New Online Sensation

Kind of funny that I come across two dog videos back -to - back.

I highly encourage you to watch this over and over again if you haven't seen this already. It only gets funnier.

I Bet Your Puppy Could Never Do THIS!

I didn't know puppies could whistle!

Call me crazy, but this is amazing, hysterical and kinda creepy all at the same time. But it's mostly just adorably hilarious.

Thank Maine For Topless Coffee

How would you like some boobs with your latte? Turns out a lot of men would... (Surprise, surprise?)

Pretty risque, but nonetheless some crazy funny news out of Vassalboro, Maine. The economy must be bad when gimmicks like this are popping up....

"Eight customers -- all men -- stopped by the coffee shop between 10 and 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. Staff members estimated they had between 50 and 60 customers on Monday, despite a snowstorm; of those customers, about eight were women."

Why bear the winter cold for a cup o' joe outside your own home? Why mostly men? Because it's a topless coffee shop!

As outrageous as it sounds, the owner interviewed more than 150 people for only 10 positions before opening up the new store. Even though most are waitresses, there are men waiting as well, all topless.
[Topless waitress Susie Wiley, 23, of Farmingdale, said she went for the job because it's "something different" and said she's worked in coffee shops since she was a teenager. Asked whether the shop is degrading to women, Wiley said, "No, I love it. I find it very empowering, not degrading."]

Last week one waitress brought coffee to a male customer, who only consumed about half a cup over a span of a few minutes, before he finally handed Kelley a $100 bill. He left without saying a single word!

I would be really surprised if this shop were to stay open, being that it's in a small community of only 4,000 + residents. However, if customers are leaving $100.00 tips, it would be hard for it not to continue. Maybe just be forced to move somewhere else.

Should we expect copy cats sometime soon? Will there be topless pizza parlors.... or topless sushi joints? Do they serve sushi or pizza at strip clubs? If they do, is there a difference between a strip club and what's going on here? Am I asking too many questions? I think I'm confusing myself. Time to stop before this truly blows my mind.

In the end they're not really stripping. I would say it's more of a European style beach..............

only it's not a beach......

.....it's Maine.

What do you think? Leave your thoughts!

Best Half-Time Performance Of All-Time

Well, at least for a commentator!

Digger Phelps gettin' his groove on with the Cal cheerleaders this past weekend. I only wish I had moves like that!
