Everything Else

Estonians Rule in Wife-Carrying

Remember the name: Uusorg. Like Alou is to baseball, and Niedermayer is to hockey, Uusorg is to wife carrying. Madis Uusorg took first in the wife-carrying championships in Finland on Saturday, checking in with a winning time of 61.7 seconds. He is the brother of last year’s winner, Margo Uusorg, who holds the world record…Read More

Runner Collapses on Cardiac Hill with Heart Attack

How appropriate is that?  I just love a good irony, and this is certainly one. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution has the details of the Peachtree Road Race from Wednesday morning: A 65-year-old man collapsed with a heart attack just after completing the famed Cardiac Hill portion of the Peachtree Road Race on Wednesday morning. Paramedics on…Read More

Is Sonya Thomas too Hot to be a Competitive Eater?

I might have to say yes. It’s quite curious actually that so many competitive eaters are in good shape. Kobayashi’s ripped, Chesnut’s normal, and some of those other dudes were getting down doing pushups before the competition. Which brings us to Sonya Thomas.

Brazilian Soccer Ref Posing in Playboy

I didn’t post this to get your thoughts on international soccer. I just wanted you to see what she looks like. She’s 29 and has far too many names for me to write them all here. Just check the video below. And also be sure to check out this google translated press release. It’s freaking…Read More

How Bad Is Horse Racing Compared to Dogfighting?

I think for the most part, we can all agree that dogfighting is pretty disgusting. But as mjd questioned in one of his first Debriefings, what makes the Preakness and other horse racing events such acceptable forms of entertainment, while dog fighting is considered so deplorable? I think that both can be considered animal abuse….Read More

Want to Make Some Money? Sue Nike

That’s exactly what Chris Whetsline is doing. Don’t know the name? That’s OK. He’s a massage therapist who wound up getting included in the whole Justin Gatlin scandal. And what’s this dude doing? Oh nothing, just suing Nike for $3.8 million. You know, chump change. The suit claims Llewellyn Starks, a former long jumper who…Read More
