Tim Tebow makes awkward TiVo ad

Despite being a backup quarterback on a team with a terrible starting quarterback, Tim Tebow is still one of the most talked about people in America. People love Tebow so much that ESPN devoted 99.99999% of its programming this year to focusing on whether or not the former Florida Gator could turn the Jets around, how his All-American persona could co-exist with the bullseye media...

Justice Is Served: Ryan Braun Left Out Of 2013 ‘Nice Jewish Guys’ Calendar

Last year, Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun tested positive for an abnormally high level of testosterone and he was subsequently suspended for 50 games under Major League Baseball’s strict PED policies. But then a funny thing happened along the way to the laboratory – Braun’s urine samples were mishandled, rendering the league’s entire case against him moot on a...

Meet the amazing 13-year-old MMA prodigy

We write about a lot of stupid kids at With Leather — the little girl who held fish over a dolphin tank and stopped paying attention, kids who let soccer players wipe boogers on their faces, kids who don’t keep their head up at hockey camp and whimpery little baseball kids who cry to get what they want among them — so it’s nice to occasionally take a step back and remember...

If Bob Costas Hadn’t Had Taiwan Animation, He’d Still Be Alive Today (Or Something)

Here’s the NMA World Edition (Taiwan Animation) take on Bob Costas and his speech about Jovan Belcher and gun control. Unsurprisingly, it features shotgun blasts to the television, Costas punching football fans with a giant God-fist, and hockey players bursting into tears. Okay, kinda surprisingly.- Follow us on Twitter @withleather - Follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and...

With Leather’s Watch This: Lo Thine Fantasy Gods, We Beckon Ye For Peyton Manning

Earlier this week, in the Fantasy Football Support Group post, I broke down the strange, new curse that is the Thursday Night Football QB conundrum. Basically, with very few exceptions, quarterbacks – and a lot of stars in general – have been terrible on the NFL Network this season. As I finished writing that, something horrifying dawned on me – I have Peyton Manning on Thursday...

Shaun White's $3.85M crib on private beach

Shaun White is a rock star. He’s 26-years old, a global snowboarding icon, gold medalist and worth millions upon millions of dollars. He’s even been known to trash a hotel room, an act which got him his first-ever shred of negative attention back in September, and people barely ever talked about it. Why didn’t anyone care? Because when you’re a young, long-haired “extreme”...

Reminder: The Japanese Version Of Wrestlers Singing Christmas Carols Is Way Better

Yesterday, I wrote a thing about WWE’s pro wrestling-themed charity/parody ‘Jingle Bells’ video, a clip that you either found hilarious or soul-crushing depending on how seriously you take fake fighting. If you watch it long enough, it goes from one side of the spectrum to the other, both ways.With Leather reader Colin Plint dropped in to mention that wrestling Christmas carols...

The Nolan Ryan Robin Venture Fight, Now In 8-Bits

I think I speak for everyone when I say Nolan Ryan headlocking Robin Ventura and bashing him in the skull like a boss is the greatest moment in baseball history. Okay, maybe not the best, but the list goes “Jackie Robinson,” “Kirk Gibson’s gimpy home run,” then Nolan Ryan emasculating Ventura.If you are on the Internet, you do not need me to tell you that Reddit is a place...

The Worst Thing To Happen To Hot Air Balloons Since Alvin & The Chipmunks

I don’t know what’s going on in Myanmar, and I don’t know why they have something called a Fire Balloon Festival, but apparently it involves setting up a hot air balloon, then f**king it up so spectacularly that it descends in a ball of fire and sets off a bunch of fireworks, killing everyone. It’s just like that scene in O Brother Where Art Thou? where the police wagon...

“I’ll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. I’m a Michael Bolton fan.

20 best sports moments from 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'

This week on Sports On TV, we tackle the horror/comedy/drama/everything else of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer,’ the 1997-2003 hit that catapulted Avengers director Joss Whedon into public consciousness, gave Sarah Michelle Gellar seven more years of television success and adapted a semi-forgotten Kristy Swanson movie into a layered, sometimes absurd and always worth-talking-about...

Dutch Soccer Fan Slip Is The New Yankees Fans GIF

This clip of a Dutch soccer fan going Full Mr. Bean is funny enough, but it gets better the more you watch it. Pay attention to everyone else in the crowd. The guy who swats at the ball at the last second. The guy making “loser” gestures in the top right. So much to find and love. The joke, I guess, is that he fell onto his Netherlands.

WWE superstars sing 'Jingle Bells'

My two favorite things in the world are probably:1. Christmas, and 2. WrestlingAt the same time, I can’t stand when those two things come together, be it a “Tribute to The Troops” special where Divas wrestle in Santa suits and Santa gets the stunner or whatever or my aunt getting me an XXL John Cena t-shirt from K-Mart because she knows I like wrestling, but hasn’t seen or...

Mike Tyson Once Again Talked About The Day He Didn’t Kill Brad Pitt

Mike Tyson has told the story about the time he caught his then-wife Robin Givens with then-nobody actor Brad Pitt before. The story originally involved Tyson showing up to Givens’ house right after she’d served him with divorce papers, and he wanted a little nookie for the time being. Unfortunately, she wasn’t home, and as he was leaving, Givens pulled up to her house with...

Size Always Mattered: A Definitive Gallery Of The NBA’s Tallest Humanitarian Manute Bol

Last week, when we discovered Old Spice’s amazing video game, Dikembe Mutombo’s 4 ½ Weeks to Save the World, and once I was done playing it for 72 hours (catch the damn ballots, you morons!) I slipped into one of my very common NBA nostalgia wormholes. And what started out as a search for Mutombo finger wag GIFs actually turned into me revisiting Manute Bol’s career and subsequent...

Andre Johnson > Santa Claus

Earlier this season, there were fantasy football reports across the major sites that included a rather depressing update about Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson. I don’t remember which NFL reporter was involved, but these reports basically read something like, “Andre Johnson’s knees are done and he’s a shell of his former self” and yadda yadda. And it doesn’t matter...
