    This is a short video of the Gainesville (Florida) based WCJB-20 sports news team reenacting highlights from the NCAA 'Elite Eight' tournament game between Dayton and Florida since they didn't have the rights to play the actual footage. It might have actually been better than ... / Continue →

    This is a video of everybody's favorite nature documentary host David Attenborough narrating a women's Olympic curling match. You know, David Attenborough might actually have my favorite voice of all time. It's so relaxing. Like, if he read me a bedtime story before I KNOW I... / Continue →

    This is a short video somebody edited together of a group of AT-ATs invading the winter Olympics and blasting the downhill mogul skiers. Well, TWO downhill mogul skiers. Were they the only rebels in the Olympics? No clue. But speaking of the Olympics, I'm going to turn them... / Continue →

    Well, the football season is over and the Redskins lost -- AGAIN. We came close though. "You only won three games." I'm not even sure if we should be considered a professional team anymore. Maybe a couple years of arena football and we can come back. This is a series of fo... / Continue →

    Because everybody wishes they were a Transformer so they could transform into a much cooler version of themselves with bazookas for arms, Nike has just announced this 'Megatron Rises' line of sneakers. They come in three varieties (including an actual cleated version for those... / Continue →

    This is a video of a drunk Washington State football fan pouring popcorn on himself in the rain as his team gets its ass handed to it by Stanford. I could watch this man all day -- and probably will. If you think I won't leave this video open in a tab all day today and tomorr... / Continue →

    This is a $30 Death Star Soccer Ball available from ThinkGeek (originally only available at the Star Wars Celebration in Europe). Of course, most of the world probably recognizes it as a Death Star football. The US just calls football soccer because, like the metric system, w... / Continue →

    Hot on the heels hooves of that insane Japanese horse racing game comes this ski jumping one (actually a Japanese PSP game called Ski Jumping Pairs). From what I gathered from watching, this is how the US team participates: three teammates start down the hill simultaneously on... / Continue →

    This is a video of professional rock climber Cedar Wright performing a 600-foot rope drop/swing in Ukraine. It's crazy how extreme people have to go these days to get a rush. I still get all sweaty and excited using a crosswalk that's already flashing orange. Hit the jump fo... / Continue →

    This is a video of 30 skiers (although I only counted 25) holding hands and doing a simultaneous backflip. Everybody lands it too. If I'd been participating I would have purposefully fallen and dragged everyone else down with me BECAUSE I'M A JERK. Just kidding, because I ca... / Continue →

    This is Bubba's Hover, a collaboration between pro golfer Bubba Watson and Oakley, and allegedly the world's first hovercraft golf cart. I find it hard to believe some other rich golfer hasn't zipped down the fairway in a hovercraft already which is why I looked it up on Youtu... / Continue →

    Because scooters and pogo-sticks are both cool, but not like super cool, somebody combined the two into the JumpX, a poorly named (come on -- PoGooter) pogo-stick/scooter hybrid. Does it do tricks? You bet your sweet padded ass it does tricks! You get good at this thing and ... / Continue →

    This is the $150 Pee-Wee Herman inspired bicycling skinsuit from Podium Cycling. It makes you look like Pee-Wee Herman. Not in the face though, so you're going to have to wear a mask. Then whenever you show up somewhere you can tell everyone Large Marge sent you. Get it? T... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of dudes extreme scootering. Or is it scooting? Because one time my dog extreme scooted her ass across the carpet clear from one side of the room to the other. You kind of have to watch the video to appreciate just how good these guys are. Like th... / Continue →

    Listen: you just have to watch his thing to believe it. It starts off kind of slow though, so skip to around 1:08 for it to really get going. They do all sorts of crazy tricks like flips, rail-slides, swinging the pogo stick around over their heads mid-jump -- all kinds of cr... / Continue →

    This is paralympian ski-racer Josh Sundquist's iconic 'A Christmas Story' leg lamp Halloween costume. He did a great job. Now, not to sound too gay or anything, but my goodness that is A GOOD LOOKING LEG. The kind you'd just love to rub your hand down when you're watching a ... / Continue →

    Everybody needs a hobby, and for some people that hobby is extreme unicycling. Different strokes for different folks, you know? I juggle chainsaws. No I don't. I play video games and drink. I used to roller skate around the neighborhood during the day in a helmet and booty... / Continue →

    Definitely the droid I was looking for -- get it? Because I like beer so much. Just kidding, I've never had a sip in my life. I'm lying. Or am I? I'm an enigma. An enigma wrapped in a baby blanket surrounded by a cloud of B.O. This is an LSU themed R2-D2 kegerator spotte... / Continue →

    Because what good are shoes if they can't tell you how high you've jumped, how far you've ran, or how many rain puddles you've stepped in, Nike is dropping these sensor-laden $315 LeBron X high-tops next month. Now I know the burning question on everybody's mind, and no, I'm n... / Continue →

    This is a series of some of the Game of Thrones houses imagined as sports team logos by artist Yvan Degtyariov (which are available as prints and t-shirts). LET'S GO LANNISTERS, AMIRITE? I'm joking, I'm totally a Targaryan kind of man. Joking again, I'm barely a man at all, ... / Continue →
