Wee Man Picks Up Not So Wee Man

Jackass’ favorite midget, Wee Man and the rest of the Jackass crew were filming some bits and the big Shaq Diesel stopped by to hang out and participate. Check out the video below as the 7’1″ 340lb Shaq being picked up by the 4’6″ 120lb Wee Man. As well, Shaq humps Wee Man on the ground, Wee Man hits Shaq with a baseball bat in the stomach and Steve-O hits Shaq with a water balloon full of piss. All in all looks like a fun afternoon of filming!

How to Tell Off Your Boss

Earlier today St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Adam Kennedy requested that he be traded during the off-season after manager Tony La Russa informed him that he would not be starting for the rest of this season nor next season. Clearly unhappy, Kennedy showed his manager up by hitting a first inning grand slam in the on-going game between the Cardinals and Cubs right now. That’s certainly one way to voice your displeasure. Unfortunately for Kennedy, in the end he still is a scrub and so one hit won’t make any difference, but regardless, it’s gotta be a pretty satisfying feeling to throw back in La Russa and GM John Mozeliak’s face, at least for one day.

Bea Arthur + Mario Lemieux = Me Swooning

Wow, this PSA from 1988 is amazing. Mario Lemieux, Tony Fernandez AND Bea Arthur? It’s like a dream team I could never even hope to have actually happen, and yet, there it is, real and once broadcast on television. The 80s weren’t so bad after all…

A Raiding Leprechaun Doppelganger

I see this terrifying picture of Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis and I all I can think of is the titular villain from Leprechaun. This picture of him and future lame-duck coach Lane Kiffin is simply terrifying. Of course check out all the other fun doppelgangers here, and if you disagree leave a comment below, all opinions will be heard!

Boston Fans Remain Classy in Tampa UPDATE

So the folks over at Red Sox Monster got a video from a fan at the game of the guy getting arrested on top of the Rays dugout during the last Sox/Rays tilt. The video isn’t especially revealing, (down in front everyone else!) but gives somewhat of an idea what was going down. I particularly enjoy the commentary from the guy filming, “this is making youtube baby!” quite the society we have built where anyone with a camera or a free blog can write or post anything they want. Totally lame right. Anyhoo, stick around for more of the always illuminating SLANCH REPORT!

Who Are All Those Mustachioed Men

The Sacramento River Cats finished off their season the other night with one more victory, leading them to their second straight Pacific Coast League championship and 4th in 6 years. After besting the International League champions from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the River Cats took home the much coveted Bricktown Showdown. Seeing that this is the triple-A affiliate of the Athletics I’m pretty surprised. If they have that much constant talent at the AAA level then why is it that the A’s are 22 games back from the Angels? Why is it that the A’s have totally blown the last few years much to my buddy Shanks’ chagrin? This year’s success appears to be related to something much larger than just the team itself. Much like how the Danny Glover led Angels had real angels in the outfield, the Sacramento River Cats had their own ethereal power. It seems the team grew 70s style porn ‘staches. Catcher Justin Konebler says the mustaches may have been the key component, “‘Stache and Bash, I guess that’s our motto for the season. It brought the team together.”
