Ever wondered why Gatorade showers were celebrations only limited to the football field? Basically,
hard wood + liquid = bad, bad accident
It’s true. Just watch this failed attempt in action and hope you never end up in that coach’s place.
Meet New Zealand’s latest surfing sensation: Zorro the surfing pig.
Zorro began surfing just three weeks after he was born. His owner Matthew Bell described the little piglet as a “phenomenal swimmer” who loves to meet people, according to ITN News. Bell is determined to take Zorro out onto the waves with him until he grows too big and become unmanageable.
But for now, the pig is just happy where he is, playing in the sand and surfing those New Zealand waves.

Remember back in the days when Aaron Carter was the “Justin Bieber” of our generation? Fine, that might be pushing it a little bit but he was still a big enough star to get basketball star Shaquille O’Neal to star in his music video, “How I Beat Shaq.”
HERE’S THE VIDEO IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT:
That must’ve been embarrassing for Shaq on so many levels. Lucky for him, the 7 foot 1 former NBA player finally gets his revenge.
He might’ve been terrible at free throws (and he knows it), but the funniest guy ever to play in the NBA is no match for the minuscule AC. Just watch as Shaq just pushes Aaron around the court while he yells, “I am Kazaam!”
Yes, yes you are.

If I could describe this martial arts move with one word, it would be: KICKASS. Proving to everyone that practice makes perfect, this quadruple kick is the epitome of bad-assery.
Remember when baseball was full of fat guys who could barely run? Now teams are filled to the brim with overly steroid players and fresh-faced new college grads whose spots have barely cleared up.
Just as a friendly reminder of how much the athleticism within the game has changed, here’s some young kid proving that you may also need some gymnastic abilities on top of those muscles if you want to make play of the week. North Carolina State University outfielder Brett Williams is positively catlike when he runs after and leaps for the ball. It’s not just the catch but his recovery that has sports desks across the U.S. scrambling to add this one YouTube clip into their nightly highlight reel.

Carmaker Audi thought it would be a hilarious idea to take two brand spanking new cars and mount them with paintball guns for the ultimate paintball duel. They held the duel in a military aircraft hanger and like in real paintball, set up obstacles for the cars to hide behind.
To be honest, I know nothing about cars. All I know is that this is the kind of stuff Ritchie Rich would do when he gets older. I also know that this probably hurts a lot less than a real game of paintball because you’re not as exposed.
Looks cool and you won’t get hurt? I’m in as long as I don’t have to pay for a) the car and b) a new paint job.
When it comes to basketball trick shots, we thought we saw them all but a cheerleader at William Carey University proves us wrong. Ashlee Arnau uses her tumbling skills to make this gotta-see shot.
Girl got game. Kudos!
Whether you’re headed for the sun or for the internet this spring break, you HAVE to see these amazing water jet packs in action. They’re made by Rocky Mountain Flyboard in Utah and can be yours for the low price of – wait, nevermind. Maybe they’ll be cheap by the time your kids hit the beach?
Two ADORABLE Golden Retriever puppies interrupted a soccer match in Istanbul, when they burst onto the field in a tug of war. The Saturday soccer match was between Turkish team Galatasaray and Germany’s VfR Aalen. Officials had to stop the game to cart the dogs off field before resuming again. Luckily the dogs didn’t tear into the grass or worse, relieve their bladders!!
Oh and if you’re wondering, VfR Aalen won the match, 1-0.
When I visualized myself playing basketball in my middle school gym class, I imagined making an unexpected shot with Herculean effort that inspired my teammates to carry me atop their shoulders as I basked in the glory — a legendary point that would be passed down through every grade.
Unfortunately this was more likely to happen:
So I usually “forgot” my gym clothes and watched from the sidelines instead. Perhaps if I’d seen this video in my younger years I would have been inspired to go for that shot that seemed impossible and to really believe in myself just like R. Kelly said I should in Space Jam.
This is how you play cool during a match of mixed martial arts.
1. Bow your head down until the right time comes.
2. Surprise them with Gangnam Style.
Here’s one from the archives: A fan dressed as a referee ran onto the field and stopped a football game between the UCLA Bruins and the Arizona Wildcats. Once the supposed “ref” strips off his shirt, madness ensues and a whole bunch of the players behind the stands come out and brawl with each other. The funny thing is, the cameras won’t show the streaker — but it doesn’t really matter because he’s just the catalyst to the madness.
Students at Taylor University have a very unique tradition. Every year, Trojan sports fans sit in complete silence — only motioning by waving their arms — until Taylor scores its tenth point of the game. Then the fans go batsh*t CRAZY, screaming, shouting and dancing to “Gangnam Style.”

I’m not a huge basketball fan but I know this free throw made by Brian Okam of Appalachian State was absolutely terrible and the fallout will be even worse because of the Internet. In the clip, Kyle Rush and Phillip Jackson describe the shot: ”I’m not sure what that was, good lord,” said one of the confused narrators.
The game was between the Mountaineers and Western Carolina. Okam attempted the second of two foul shots however, the ball was about 10 feet short of the rim.
The shot has since been turned into a variety of Internet memes and GIFs, making fun of the lacklustre move. One thing is for sure, this poor guy will never live down one of the worst shots in history.

During last night’s game against the Buffalo Bills, two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders had their heads shaved by the Blue mascot to raise money for leukaemia research. Both Megan and Crystal looked beautiful without their hair and raised $22,000.
The two ladies were personally affected by cancer as the head coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukaemia in September. Since then, he lost all his hair but his doctor said earlier this month that the cancer was in complete remission.
The two cheerleaders aren’t the first two to go bald. Shortly after Pagano was diagnosed players went hairless or wore orange to support their coach.

Everyone knows when your favourite sports team loses you have to go home, eat a gigantic bucket of KFC, have a private cry and curse loudly, whenever possible. That’s why it was an impossible task to ask this reporter on WUSA to keep his interviews clean, among a sea of disgruntled Washington Nationals fans. Despite his best efforts, things get f*cked up… I MEAN, things don’t go as planned
For a lot of people (ahem, me) team sports as a child were super nerve-racking because of the all-consuming fear of being chosen last. Luckily, these two kids have loving family members to prepare them for the big day that they’ll have their first go at organized sports.
Unfortunately, neither child is necessarily adept in their chosen arenas. Let’s assess:
This kid has so much passion for wiffle ball… until he doesn’t. In fact, he has a two-second attention span. That’s a record low!! This was the three-year-old’s second time playing the sport but it looks like he’ll need a lot more practice.

I was lucky enough to spend a day with a bunch free runners a couple years ago and watch them barrel over landmarks and scale walls in Canada’s capital city. I was always in awe of them and don’t understand how you can’t be. On the surface, parkour looks like athletes doing fun tricks but the whole message behind it is to develop altruism by overcoming physical boundaries — ie building self-confidence by getting from one spot to another in the most efficient way possible.
In this Will Sutton-shot video, parkour enthusiasts seamlessly leap across gates and jump off high ridges in front of beautiful landscapes. If you’re not in awe, you’re probably doing something wrong.
I find the Olympics are kind of like Christmas. While it’s happening, you indulge in the camaraderie with family and friends but as soon as it’s over, it’s over. Being reminded of that glorious time is like dangling a piece of pie in front of your face and chanting, no you can’t have it. That’s why I dragged over this mashup of the best Olympics moments from the London Games. But it’s actually pretty funny and I assure you that you’ll watch more than you intend.
