Who Says Only Baseball Managers Get to Blow Up

One of the advantages of being an enraged hockey coach is that the players have LOTS of equipment, meaning plenty of ammunition to unload onto the ice to express your displeasure with the referees as this coach does.

Why I Don’t Drag Race Any Longer

Now you might say I no longer drag race because I live in Brooklyn and having a car is unnecessary but I say it’s because I didn’t want to die like this. I love drag racing. There were many times when I was at a red light, next to some tiny-d mid-life crisis Porsche-driver and my Corolla would straight up BURN them. They knew we were racing; I gave them the revving engine signal, they just couldn’t hang.

John Bartunek of East Pearl, NY had the fastest qualifying time of 6.123 but his ride ended in near-disaster when he had some tire-shaking that led to his ’68 Camaro flying into the air and ultimately coming to rest burning against the guard rail.

“It was a nice, clean run. It was pretty much business as usual,” Bartunkek said after he emerged unharmed from the car.

“Maybe one of our ‘chutes got under the wheelie bar.” After that, he said, it was “just smoke and fire. You just hang on and hope it stops soon,” Bartunek said, “But Jerry Haas builds an awesome car. We’ll be back.”

Fast forward the video to the 1:57 mark for the good stuff.

Belichick Wears a Mic

I love insider-y stuff, getting the chance to listen to Bill Belichick on the sidelines during a game is exactly the type of thing I’m interested in.Now, obviously the audio gets edited by the NFL before they release it, but it still is a totally cool way to see/hear/understand the game, particularly from a football genius like Belichick. I’d love someday to be the guy in the truck who gets to hear the whole, unadulterated version because I bet THAT is super-interesting. Oh well.

Playboy Enters the Yoga Market with Educational Videos

sarah-jean-underwood-playboy-yoga

In 2007 Playboy crowned Sarah Jean Underwood as their Playmate of the Year; fast forward to today and she and Playboy are once more joining forces in one of the smartest business pairings of all time, yoga training tapes. The talent and beauty of Ms. Underwood, combined with the many benefits of yoga is sure to sell plenty of tapes. From the clips it appears that Underwood is clad in clothes, a rarity one would think in a Playboy produced film but, so it goes. I’m not sure that I’d WANT to see nude yoga, but then, I’m the adventurous type, might as try everything once…

What you can be sure of though is that her enthusiasm about yoga, (and her super-cute good looks) will lead to a financial bonanza for a magazine that has seen its profits drastically shrink thanks to the Internet.

Jon Stewart Wants to Play Ball With Serena Williams

I forgot to post this yesterday but Serena Williams stopped by The Daily Show on Tuesday for an interview with a very smitten Jon Stewart. He had Jessica Biel on the other day like it was nothing, but when Serena is there he can’t stop hitting on her, which is interesting considering that sitting next to him Serena looked like a giant muscle-bound specimen and he looked like a short out-of-shape panting Jew. Weird how that works. Move on Jon, it would never work between the two of you, she’s simply too powerful for you, she’d snap you in half.

Who is Ready for the Superbowl Halftime Show!

The WhoI’ve been wondering WHO will be performing at the Superbowl halftime show, since 2004’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” the performers have been on the older, more classic rock side of the dial. According to Sports Illustrated’s Hot Clicks, this year’s performers will continue that trend, so get your DVRs ready now for THE WHO! Yes!

I love The Who! Who DOESN’T love The Who? Consider me especially excited now for the eventual Saints/Patriots Superbowl; Tom Brady, Drew Brees, kid-toucher Pete Townsend, Randy Moss, Keith Moon, they’ll all be there! Well, maybe not Keith…

There had been rumors that perhaps Bon Jovi would be doing the halftime show, but I can only hope that it is The Who, and them alone. I like me some Bon Jovi, but compare them to The Who and it simply is no contest.

She Has Grass on Her Fields

Complete with a matching detachable skirt that says “Be Quiet” the Japanese have invented an all-new way to enjoy golf, the detachable putting green bra. Obviously stylish while being worn, the putting green bra lives up to its name, unfolding into a nearly 5 foot long putting green with the holes being played by the bra cups. What kind of portable wearable putting green doesn’t come with ball storage, a crappy one, and this product is all class. Even better, when you sink a putt the bra talks to you, saying “Nice Shot!”golf-bra

Sure, in order to practice putting you need to go topless for a bit, but I think we can all agree golf was getting far too staid and needs some livening up. This should do it. Thank god for the Japanese, think of all the advancements we’d be without if it weren’t for their wacky brains.

Didier Drogba Gets Jump Kicked

Sunday’s match was a fierce battle pitting the English Premier League leading Chelsea versus third-place Manchester United; still tied 0-0, Chelsea’s star striker Didier Drogba went hard after a loose ball bounding towards the penalty box. Man U defender Jonny Evans was coming strong from the opposite angle and jumped in to corral the ball. While in the air, he led with his foot and (mostly) inadvertently kicked Didier right in the chest. No dive needed on this play, watch the replay where Drogba’s chest gets stabbed with a pair of cleats. Yowch!

Chad Ochocinco Lays Down the Rules

There isn’t an NFL player more actively involved in self-promotion and social networking than the Bengals’ Chad Ochocinco. When not torching defenses, Chad is all about himself, he is able though to have some fun doing it, like this rule he posted in his locker and then tweeted.

Ochochinco Rule

That note is laminated; clearly Chad spent some time on this, this wasn’t an impromptu notice. Also, according to his Twitter, Chad is playing Call of Duty on his Xbox and wants people to play with, his XBox name is Esteban 85.
