Marissa Miller Pitches For Razors

Now I don’t generally like to provide free viral advertising, I’m much more likely to post something if it has someone like Marissa Miller involved. So here’s a new ad for some Remington razor something or other,who cares featuring Miller and Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun. What matters is Marissa Miller. What matters more is that this video is about as close to soft-core porn as commercials go. It also features more sex puns and euphemistic language than I’ve ever seen. In 2 minutes plus I think they make approximately 2000 sexual references. The classiest? Marissa Miller asking Ryan Braun why he isn’t off signing some kid’s balls, with the balls part heavily emphasized. I was unaware that Braun was so into kid’s testes. Let’s hope he isn’t, he and Kevin Youkilis are the vanguard for the Jewish athlete revival and we don’t need that kind of bad publicity. We’d also like to suggest that Marlon Brando he ain’t and mayhaps Braun should do more with his bat and less with the acting.

Anyways, here’s Marissa, enjoy!

A Slow Moving Golf Cart Disaster

In a hilarious bit of odd news, comes this video of a kid accidentally driving a golf cart across a football field before a game and hitting the ref. It seems that no one knows how the kid got into the golf cart but once he started getting going he was unable to stop it and, despite being chased across the field he hits the ref with the cart before his joyride of terror can be stopped. It all occurred prior to a high school football game in Springfield, Oregon on October 17. It looks like the golf cart chase was the most exciting part of the night as the game ended in a 68-14 lopsided victory. The ref toughed it out and stayed and called the entire game without incident. However, it doesn’t say much for the moves of the ref that he’s unable to avoid a slow moving golf cart driven by a child…Anyhoo, check out the video after the jump.

A Weighty Hit

Not to become all Canadian or something, and of course, the absolute LAST thing I want to do is make this a hockey blog, BUT, here’s another awesome hit from a game over the weekend. In this clip, New York Islander Doug Weight knocks the snot out of Brandon Sutter of the Hartford Whalers Carolina Hurricanes. Wow.

An “Oh Face” Doppelganger

In 1999 I saw a sneak preview of Office Space at the Copley Mall movie theater. There were about 10 people in the theater and my friend and I managed to sit in front of a GIGANTIC fat man who guffawed and hooted throughout the entire movie, making pithy comments like “totally!” and making it impossible to follow or enjoy the movie. I had to see it again a year later to figure out if I liked the movie or not. Of course, one of the most often imitated and repeated parts from that movie is the “oh face” moment. Joe Blanton last night showed off his pitching prowess, his power bat with his first career home run and of course, his dirty pine-tar stained hat. Both Joe Blanton and Greg Pitts (the guy who played the “oh face” guy) share quite the resemblance I (and commenter the roomate) believe. Don’t agree? Think I’m a genius? Make sure you vote in the poll below and as ever, go to see all the doppelgangers thus far assembled here.

There Just Might Be a God

According to anonymous reports in the Daily News there is a half-decent chance that this World Series might be the last work we see out of Joe Morgan on ESPN. Gloriously mustachioed Bob Raissman reports that his embedded sources tell him that Morgan and possibly also Jon Miller, will be removed from the Sunday Night Baseball broadcasts. Oh how I hope this is true. I simply cannot understand why a figure so polarizing, someone who I have NEVER seen a positive word about regarding his broadcast abilities has been allowed to continue being on national television. The game of baseball has passed by Joe Morgan. Sure, he used to be a phenomenal player, but as a broadcaster he totally blows. He never presents anything informative or interesting, he’s regularly wrong and he continually derides the modern statistics while sticking by stats that truly have no bearing on the actual ability of a player such as RBIs and wins. So here’s hoping that Raissman’s sources are correct, the sooner we can get Joe Morgan and his terrrifying cat eyes off of TV the better.
