Here’s Some Obnoxious Umpiring

Obnoxious, yes, but also funny. This umpire has been compared to Frank Drebin. Remember that time he umpired that game between the Seattle Mariners and (then) California Angels? Sure you do. Anyway, this guy has got a bit of that going on. You’ve got to think the players and coaches are in on the gag because who would stand for this otherwise? Baseball is a serious game, dammit! That’s why there are unwritten rules! I...

The Great Go Kart Pileup

Go karting is actually a sport in some places, it appears. Maybe in every place. I don’t know. I just thought it was something you do when you’re at an amusement park. Not so. People take this stuff seriously and when there’s a group of people that takes something really seriously, then you know those people are awesome. Right? Anyway, here’s a go kart race. A go kart race in the rain. Rain and competitive go...

It took me an hour to get from Hollywood to Van Nuys last night. Damn Hollywood Bowl traffic! There was actually traffic on the streets when this was shot, but all of the cars were removed in post production. The closest L.A. ever comes to...

Monster Fish

It doesn’t even look real, does it? It is real. That’s an 84.9 pound Cubera Snapper, which was caught by Brett Rutledge somewhere in the waters of Alabama. The fish was determined to be 36 years old and is a new state record for most gigantic fish. The damn thing has fangs. If it weren’t dead, it would probably eat you and then go on its merry way. (these...

Tim Howard Denies Bro a Hug

Tim Howard is an American hero right now. Even though the U.S. Men’s National Team lost to Belgium in the World Cup round of 16, Howard, the team’s goalie, played out of his mind in that game. The U.S. probably should have lost 13-1 instead of 2-1. They didn’t because of Howard. And let’s face it. The U.S. isn’t a soccer nation, so getting to the round of 16 in the World Cup and losing there is actually...
