Learn English With Carol 3: Even The Taiwanese Are Turning On Jeremy Lin

Last week I introduced you to Learn English Conversation With Carol, the web series from batsh*t Taiwanese cartoon magnate Next Media Animation, wherein a Taiwanese lady named Carol teaches viewers conversational English phrases and terms (like “Bandwagon” or “he’s got a good head on his shoulders”) with the help of Jeremy Lin. And not just normal Jeremy Lin … a computer...

At Least Some Cubs Fans Are Being Proactive

The bad news for Chicago Cubs fans is that their team is dead last in the NL Central with a 17-32 record, 11 games behind the first place St. Louis Cardinals Cincinnati Reds. The good news for Cubs fans is that they’re not the San Diego Padres. At least not yet. But in another rebuilding year this was expected, so it’s nice to see that some Cubs fans are having fun with what...

Boy with cerebral palsy finishes school race

oh good, I needed to sob uncontrollably for the entire afternoon By way of The Daily What comes this video of Matt, a kid at Colonial Hills Elementary School in Ohio. Matt was given the option to sit out or run in the school’s Field Day Race, and he chose to run. The important note here is that Matt has spastic cerebral palsy, a condition that stands up on its back legs and says...

This Week In Niche Marketing: Tim Tebow And Sam Bradford Worship Satan

Charles Hubbard claims to be a spiritual man, called upon by the great Creator to use his “Spiritual gifts for His glory” but he’s smart enough to know that in this age of the Internet and social media, you need to hitch your wagon to something that really pulls. So of course Hubbard has created a website that openly criticizes New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow and...

How Many Sports Metaphors Can We Mix Into This Dwyane Wade Highlight?

Dwyane Wade's greatest highlight. If the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder gave us The Avengers on Sunday, then the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics gave us, at best, Italian Spider-Man yesterday. Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals was as much of a dick-measuring contest as it was a basketball game, with the Celtics trying desperately to prove their “Big 3” could...

Someone Be A Gentleman And Help Kate Upton With That Gas Can

Oops, sorry. That’s Brooklyn Decker up there, not Kate Upton. They’re still just too damn easy to confuse with each other. Anywho, Decker was on hand for the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday as a guest of Coke Zero and to promote her new film Battleship, which is currently doing its best Kenny Wallace impression at the box office. Either way, someone won the race, and apparently nobody...

Metta World Peace Promotes Mental Health Awareness By Being Out Of His Goddamn Mind

I’m not sure if Metta World Peace loves the film Meteor Man or if Eric Warheim just tricked him into thinking ‘Channel 5 Kid Break’-style slam dunk videos would help promote mental health awareness, but here we are: Metta World Peace is skateboarding across skyscrapers to dunk flaming basketballs because he wants your brain to work. Armed with a 40 pound Curling Stone, Metta...

Happy Texas Republican Primary, Craig James!

If it’s not over until the fat lady sings, Craig James better stuff a rib eye in Adele’s mouth. The Texas Republican primary is being held tonight for the Senate seat that the former ESPN blowhard has so righteously coveted, and to put it as nicely as possible – he doesn’t stand a f*cking chance. According to the latest public poll, the frontrunner for Kay Bailey Hutchison’s...

The Only Guy Who Can Run Your Underwear Up A Flagpole Without Removing Them

Zimbabwean-born rugby union player Tendai Mtawarira is nicknamed “Beast”, and if you need validation of that nickname please consult this clip of him hoisting Sharks teammate Anton Bresler into the air to make a catch, then holding him there by his shorts so he doesn’t fall over backwards. I believe Last Angry Fan described it best as a “clean-and-jerk using a grown man”...

Pop Quiz, David Stern: How Do You Punish Two Guys Flopping At Once?

Worst Kama Sutra page ever. Last night’s Western Conference Finals Game 1 between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder was everything that we’ve expected this series to offer us ever since we all predicted that the Top 2 seeds would be playing each other. The Spurs took the first game 101-98, although it wasn’t actually that close, as James Harden made a 3-pointer...

Justin Bieber Can Probably Kick Your Ass

No idea which MLB team that hat is for, but I think it's the Reds. Ever since Mike Tyson started his one-man show in Las Vegas, he ‘s become Mr. Name Dropper on Twitter with all of the new celebrity and Vegas “celebrity” friends that he’s made. In fact, his Instragram looks like the Who’s Who of “Who? Oh, that guy… meh”. But that all changed last week when Tyson...

You may remember Bob from such creative endeavors as ‘Full House’, ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ and spending the last 20 years trying to convince people he wasn’t the Danny...

Shaq Can’t Be The Orlando Magic GM Because His Movie Career Is Taking Off Again

As we discussed yesterday, people were a bit perplexed when TNT NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal was suddenly mentioned as a candidate for the vacant Orlando Magic GM position, because he’d spent the last decade completely pissing all over the franchise that drafted him No. 1 overall in 1992. Eventually, though, it made perfect sense when it was revealed that Shaq was being considered...

"Haha, I don't have an agent either!" Never in a million years would I have ever thought I’d say, “Please, bring back Bow Wow.” But there I was last night, flipping through the channels during a timeout in the Miami Heat’s series-clinching victory over the Indiana Pacers, when I stumbled upon the film Like Mike 2: Streetball, as it aired on BET.
