North Korean Athletes Won’t Be Disrespected

"Oh no, they're showing Guys with Kids commercials?"Despite being a nation still celebrating the all-natural and not-at-all-staged marriage of Kim Jung-Un to former singer Ri Sol Ju, who clearly loves him for his looks and personality, all was not well yesterday for the people of North Korea. It seems that some no-good Westerner at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London...

The Very Best Of Kate Upton On DeviantArt

Yesterday I wrote a little about sexy Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke, and how we’d helped make her life miserable by exposing her to the creepy nooks of sexy and parody on the Internet. That got me thinking a lot about Kate Upton, a woman who purposefully used the Internet to wedge herself into those nooks, and how she’d been cyclically berated and celebrated by the Internet...

The Reading Phillies Crazy Obstacle Course Home Run Derby Actually Happened

Back in January, we shared with you a video introducing Minor League Baseball’s best (and possibly worst) idea ever: a Baseballtown All-Star Home Run Derby organized by the Reading Phillies to include a points-based obstacle course in the outfield, a party for fans in the infield dirt while the home run derby was happening and a jazz musician squatting and playing rockin’ acoustic...

This Week In Original Etsy Sports Merchandise – 2012 Summer Olympics Edition

Relevant.Earlier this week, I scoured the Internet to put together my official 2012 Summer Olympics Team USA viewing gear so I could properly cheer on my nation’s best athletes from the comfort of my favorite bars.

Turns Out Grindr Didn’t Crash Because Of The Olympics Gaypocalypse

"And all he wanted to talk about was where I got my underwear."The fun of any Olympics is political subplots, as politicians, special interest groups, and various mouth-breathing hate mongers can use the global focus of this gathering of the world’s greatest athletes as a chance to draw attention to themselves. One of the issues that has people fired up leading into the...

Surprise! The World Isn’t Reacting Well To Michelle Jenneke

Last week (Jesus, has it only been a week?), we caused a viral Internet dancestorm when a clip of sexy Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke and the admittedly sorta tasteless follow-up of animated GIFs and slow motion video started showing up everywhere. No, seriously, everywhere. Everyone from The Huffington Post to Daily Mail UK and Yahoo! copy-pasted the story and declared us...

Cole Hamels Is Now Much Richer Than You

In a deal that really shouldn’t have surprised anyone, lest a team were willing to deliver an entire bus full of MLB-ready pitching prospects to City of Brotherly Love, the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a new deal with lefty Cole Hamels that will make him the second-richest pitcher in Major League Baseball, behind C.C. Sabathia. At a press conference today, Hamels will probably...

How Do You Say Goodbye To A Legend? By Writing An Emo Song About Ichiro

The New York Yankees bounced back from their humiliating 4-game sweep at the hands of the Oakland Athletics over the weekend by not only beating the Seattle Mariners 4-1 on the field, but also by crushing the spirit of the entire city. In what can only be described as one of those baseball trades that “had to be done for the sake of the aging star”, the Mariners traded their...

If You Get The Cockney Accent Correct, You Can Go Chicken Oriental My Son

Two truths:1. According to Wikipedia, the cockney accent represents “working-class Londoners, particularly those in the East End”. According to most Americans, “white people” is an accent representing wherever you live, and everyone else in the world sounds weird and can’t speak English.2. Unless somebody suddenly brings Rex Harrison back from the dead, our 2012 Olympic...

I may not know much about the celebrity game, but I do know that if Mickey Rourke wants to tell you a crazy story, you take that phone call every damn time. That’s why the man of the hour is Yahoo!
