Tyson Worries Fame Will Change Him

I guess Mike Tyson is at Sundance, promoting a documentary about him and at a dinner at his honor he stood up and made this speech. Money quote: “”I’m afraid of how much pussy, and how much money I’m going to get, and it’s going to lead to a lot of problems. That really bothers me a lot. It sounds funny, but it’s really detrimental to me.”

Ah Mike, you so crazy.

See Hockey, Win A Million Bucks

In Chicago last night, fans went home saddened by the Blackhawks’ 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild, except for one fan. An unidentified fan, through an Illinois lottery promotion walked away from the game with $1 million after the Wild’s Martin Havlat scored exactly at the 10 minute mark of the second period. While the other Chicagoans went home despondent, the man, who requested his name be withheld was full of happiness and also looked a little stunned after the game when he got the chance to meet Havlat.

“At least something good came out of the game,” Havlat told the winner.

During the postgame press conference when the ‘Hawks’ coach Joel Quenneville was informed about the lucky fan he had this understated statement. “He did? Good for him.”

McNabb Gets Pranked

Prior to their game on Sunday, some rambunctious Arizona Cardinals fans went over to Donovan McNabb’s Arizona residence and opted for the always demoralizing burning messages into the lawn tactic. Leaving messages like “Go Cards” and similar thoughts, was apparently meant to break McNabb’s spirit and lead to a Cardinals victory. I guess that’s why he kept overthrowing his receivers…

McNabb reportedly took photos of the damage at the house, where his wife and three children were staying, using the photos as motivation. It clearly didn’t work.

Unfortunately for the pranksters, who also toilet papered the house, one of them left a box at the scene, a box with his MAILING LABEL it. Not subtle my friend. Here’s a free tip for future pranks, don’t leave things with your name and address on it, especially if you are trying to go after a professional athlete who is 6’2″, 24o lbs and is used to much bigger men than you trying to put a hurt on him…

Happy Feet Make Happy Goals

At first, this just looks like another goal, nothing particularly interesting or special about it, that is until I watched it in slow motion. Yoanne Gorcuff makes a couple sick moves before burying this ball in the back of the net. Touché monsieur Gorcuff, touché.

A Scrub Suns/Scrub Actress Doppelganger

So, this one might be a stretch, but I think it’s pretty good, I guess the only way to determine for certain is through voting in the poll below.

Louis Amundson is an uninspiring bench player for the Phoenix Suns, averaging a robust 3.6 ppg, in 11 minutes per game, the second year player has done little to prove his worth in the league, but he does manage to keep the bench nice and warm. He even managed to reach a new career high in points last night, with 13! Way to go!Maggie Gyllenhall is an uninspiring actress who manages to do little, even in major blockbusters like The Dark Knight, opting instead to let others do the heavy lifting of actually acting. I think they are proper doppelgangers. Of course, for all the other fun doppelgangers, check out the link here, and please please vote in the poll below to let these doppelgangers join their friends.
