The Lanes Must Be Slick

Get ready Steelers fans, this video of Ben Roethlisberger bowling is apparently from a few days after he was carted off the field with a concussion. Roethlisberger, who is an avid bowler seems to be suffering some of the effects of the concussion still. Check it out.

Of course, the smart guy who posted the video said Roethlisberger either doesn’t know that when Roethlisberger got hurt it was 2008, not 2007, or this video is really old. Either way, Roethlisberger falls down and I laugh so, win/win.


What If God Was One of Us?

Kurt Warner LOVES God, like a LOT, so it is not a huge surprise that there is a video of him drawing a picture of what he thinks God looks like. It doesn’t make any sense, and he’s certainly no artist, but check it out, it’ll hurt your brain.

Being a Fan Can Be Hard…or Flaccid

A Dutch soccer team has taken the extreme step of banning one fan for life from their stadium for taking an illicit photo. The photograph in question (right) features the fan and the former mayor of the Hague, Wim Deetman and of course, the fan’s penis outside his pants.

Fresh off a meeting with the club directors of ADO Den Haag, the unnamed fan met Deetman and asked for a photograph. Ever obliging, Mayor Deetman had no second thoughts, until the photograph was circulated on the internet and he saw it several days later. Deetman has since taken legal action against the fan, although I cannot imagine what kind of recourse he expects, after all, the photo is on the internet forever, also, how has he been truly harmed? It’s not as though the penis is ON Deetman or anything…

ADO Den Haag have found the incident distasteful enough to have banned the fan from their stadium for life. “To us, the incident is now closed,” said chairman Ronald Langenbach.

I for one hope this catches on in the US, I’ll pay big bucks to anyone who can get a similar photo with Joe Girardi, Herm Edwards or Ozzie Guillen.

NBC’s Coverage Got Someone HOTTTT

From Best Week Ever comes this clip from NBC’s football coverage where, after the interminably awful 3d stupid cross-promotional commercial comes the sound of a man possibly, orgasming. Me, I think it is someone so disgusted with the commercial that his disbelief gets registered on-air, but I’ll leave it for you to decide.

Put it In His Mouth

In one of the more bizarre suspected doping cases, Jeff Adams, a wheelchair racing athlete is planning on appealing his suspension of 2 years for testing positive for cocaine. Adams, who has won 6 world championships is adamant that he doesn’t use cocaine. According to Adams, while at the Toronto Goth bar Vatikan, an unknown woman came up to him as he sat on a couch in the club and stuffed cocaine into his mouth.

Makes sense to me. That shit ALWAYS happens to me whenever I go out, I can’t STOP people from trying to shove drugs in my mouth. I’m usually lucky if the evening ends and it was ONLY drugs they were trying to stuff into me.

Adams said the catheter he used after that incident to extract urine was the same one he used to give a urine sample a week later after a race at the Canadian wheelchair marathon championships in Ottawa. He said that contaminated catheter caused his positive test for a cocaine metabolite.

However, the arbiter, Richard McLaren isn’t necessarily buying it, “(Adams) could have reported the matter to the police but chose not to do so despite the fact he is married to a police officer. … When I look at the entire circumstances beyond the mere testimony of the athlete I find that the overall version of the events strains my credulity in respect of what occurred.”

By all accounts, Adams has been upfront about this issue all along, and I got to believe that his story is SO ridiculous that there has to be some truth to it. Otherwise, how could anyone EVER think that story would hold up?
