Jayson Werth Would Appreciate You Getting That Microphone Out Of His Face

Jayson Werth had an unfortunate case of misguided frustration following the Nationals loss to the Phillies on Thursday. During a postgame interview a microphone got a bit too close to his glorious facial hair and he let the reporter know how he felt about it and proceeded to end the interview. Hard to blame him.

News Reporter Wakes Up Only Guy Waiting In Line For Tennessee Titans Tickets

There are a lot of strange things about the video above. First and foremost, the obvious one is that this guy still feels the need to camp out for Tennessee Titans tickets even though he’s the only guy in line. Secondly, he doesn’t own a credit or debit card…sketchy. Third, he’s only buying one ticket? Interesting. Regardless, you certainly can’t question this guy’s devotion...

Why Altidore to Sunderland is Huge for U.S. Soccer

The Eredivisie is not the Barclays Premier league. Sunderland was avoiding relegation last year. His first cup of tea in England with Hull City did not taste very good. Regardless, Jozy Altidore moving to Sunderland is huge, for the United States and for U.S. Soccer. It may just seem like a normal transfer for England, for the Netherlands, and for European football.

Weird And/Or Drunk Cubs Fan Bites Lady During Game

This strange moment was captured by cameras during last night’s Cubs-Cardinals game. It shows one Cubs fan leaning over and biting the shoulder of another, a woman who is talking to a Cardinals fan. I’m going to go ahead and assume these two Cubs fans know each other (god, I hope so) and that the guy was either a little too drunk, a little too jealous, or just didn’t want the...

Official Trailer For The Canyons (Yes, It Is Finally Coming Out)

While gearing up to watch Sharknado tonight, I almost missed this little nugget that popped up in my Google Reader Feedly feed (god, that sounds redundant).

Elders React To Twerking
