The Man Knows How to Play With His Balls

Being this skilled with a soccer ball is pretty neat, although all I can think of is the hours and hours spent mastering these moves when you could be doing more useful things. Like playing FIFA on the PS2 or something.

Sign Me Up for the Iditarod

Apparently, racing dogs through a vast snowy landscape and through blistering cold can make you go a little bit crazy, who knew? Current Iditarod race leader Lance Mackey reported from the course that he saw an apparition the other day along the track.

Fatigue can do funny things to long-distance mushers, Mackey said. On Thursday night, he was riding the sled and saw a girl sitting by the side of the trail doing something, probably knitting.

“She laughed at me, waved, and I went by her and she was gone,” Mackey said of his hallucination. “You just laugh.”

Do you know how hard it is to find good hallucinogens these days? And these mushers are getting the good stuff, FOR FREE! I’m pissed no one told me about this until now. It turns out that Mackey isn’t the only one who this happens to, apparently it is very common among dog sledders. For instance, via Help Sled Dogs comes these other stories:

  • “I was exhausted and had already begun to hallucinate during the last hour of traveling, seeing the small people of the woods, hearing low-flying airplanes in the middle of the night.”
  • “I’ve seen villages, freight trains and cabins that were not there”
  • “I saw animals-a rock pile became a bison, a stump became a moose.”
  • “I was home from school, about 7 years old, standing in my grandmother’s kitchen with my chin just about counter height, watching, smelling while Granny slathered a slice of homemade bread with bacon grease.”
  • “And then I began to hallucinate. I saw people standing beside the trail, never anyone I recognized. They talked and laughed among themselves like they were waiting for my arrival at a nonexistent checkpoint. I turned and as the light of my headlamp swept over them they stopped talking and turned their heads to stare at me as we passed. Sometimes they were back from the trail and I only heard voices, catching snippets of conversations, never any intelligible words, but I assumed they were talking about me.”

I had no idea that all I needed to do to trip balls was go into the wilderness of Alaska and nearly die thanks to exposure. I can’t believe I’ve been missing out all this time. Continue reading ‘Sign Me Up for the Iditarod’

MMM…Bacon Wall…

This has been making the rounds today, and rightly so, because it is freaking awesome. I hope the Super Bowl festivities I attend at LEAST have something this extravagant. However, I feel confident that just looking at this gives you diabetes.

Like Looking at Car Accidents?

The economy has destroyed newspapers, major newspapers in major markets are up for sale, the Chicago Tribune filed for bankruptcy yesterday, and based on the way the mainstream media has ignored the internet markets, it is little wonder. However, for one brief shining moment a newspaper did something wonderful, the NY Daily News features a gallery today of some of the finest, horrific sports injuries ever. Finally, a story I care about!

Check out the full gallery here, some of the images are gruesome, others are merely after the fact, but all are enjoyable, providing you aren’t the one being hurt.

Alabama receiver Tyrone Prothro has his leg snapped during a 2005 game.

Boom Shake Shake Shake the Room

This gallery has some amazing still photos of some big ass hits from the NFL. These are not all from this year with many from seasons past, but frankly, who really cares when you get to see some big men knocking the shit out of one another. Look at Ocho Cinco’s face when he gets popped here, don’t you wish that could happen EVERY time he catches a ball? Check out the full gallery here!
