The University of Oregon played the University of California Irvine in college basketball last night. It was a mismatch because Oregon is really good and Irvine is more or less mediocre. The game wasn’t as big of a mismatch as this matchup though. It was caught by photographer Brian Davies. That’s Irvine’s 7’6″ center Mamadou Ndiaye… Continue reading Major Basketball Height Mismatch
Red Bull said, hey, let’s build a bunch of ramps in stuff in an office and let our skateboarding team have it. This happened on the 23rd floor of a high-rise in Chicago. The skaters are Ryan Sheckler, Felipe Gustavo, Joey Brezinski, Corbin Harris, Alex Midler, Ryder Lawson, Gard Hvaara and Sewa Kroetkov.
If you’ve even been to Detroit, you know it’s uh… kind of run down. There are plenty of empty factories, dilapidated houses and so forth. Although there has been some revitalization in recent years, there are still plenty of areas of the city that are pretty much dead. That makes Detroit perfect for urban exploring… Continue reading Skiing Abandoned Buildings in Detroit
This video comes from last Saturday’s college football matchup of instate rivals Arizona State and Arizona. They don’t like each other very much and, apparently, some of the fans of each team don’t like like each other very much. You always see people swearing and hurling insults at opposing fans at football games. Sometimes fights… Continue reading Old Guy Kicks a Student in the Face at a Football Game
A couple drunk Chicago Bears fans decided to have a foot race after yesterday’s game. It did not go particularly well for one of them. Not only did he lose, but he became intimately acquainted with a parking meter. Looks like it hurt a little. (Via)
Jose Canseco is an odd dude. At one time he was one of the best players in baseball (when he played for the Oakland Athletics). Then he admitted to steroid use and decided to rat out a bunch of other guys who supposedly juiced. At that point, baseball wanted nothing do with him anymore. Since… Continue reading Jose Canseco Rides with Goats in Diapers in His Car
This video footage was taken from a motorcycle race in Macau. You get to ride along with the driver and, probably, crap your pants. Speed, tight turns and everything else. Crazy. (Via)
College football tailgate parties are strange places. Actually, college is a strange place. It’s also a drunk place, but tailgate parties are probably the drunkest parts of college. That is, if you go to a major football school. Fans — students, parents and just general degenerate football-loving folks — set up in the parking lot… Continue reading Here’s a Grandma Bonging a Beer Because… Football!
Driver Ken Block built this pretty crazy obstacle course called Gymkhana SIX: The Ultimate Gymkhana Grid Course. It includes a spiked wrecking ball, some pretty tight spaces and some really crazy dudes on Segways. Block flies around and through all of it in a Ford Fiesta ST RX43 2013 race car. I think he’s probably going to… Continue reading Here’s Ken Block Driving An Insane Obstacle Course
I don’t know if this is really funny, but it’s kind of amazing — that blind people can play hockey. I can’t even play hockey and I can see just fine. As you might expect, there are some modifications from regular hockey. The game is played with an oversized, hollow puck (5.5 inches in diameter)… Continue reading Blind People Playing Hockey
