Woman in heels slips on ice after Kings game, falls hard (Video)

Ouch! That looked like it definitely hurt. Woman learns the hard way that you don’t ever want to wear high heels on ice. Maybe next time take them off?

And nice going, Mario Solis. Didn’t even have the courtesy to go help the woman? What the heck kind of man are you?

Oh, and thanks for the spot shadow, NBC. We wouldn’t have known where to focus our attention without it.

UPDATE: And she’s OK!

NBCLA later interviewed the woman, and she was identified as Hannah Hunsinger.

“Yes, I am OK. And you would think that after skating on the ice that I would be OK with walking on it, but that wasn’t the case,” Hunsinger told NBC LA.

“I’m ashamed for this,” she joked. “Nobody told you you have to walk on ice too!”

We later discovered that Hannah is a Kings Ice Girl and was in the team calendar. Take a look.

Guy jumps off cliff and lands next to great white shark — real or fake?

A video of a man supposedly jumping off a cliff in Australia and landing next to a great white shark is going viral. It has already amassed over 1 million views on YouTube. While the GoPro footage is pretty impressive, it appears to be fake.

Could something like this happen? I don’t see why not, but there is one major glitch in the video. If you pay close attention at around the 58-second mark, the shark appears on the right side of the screen before disappearing and reappearing on the left. Either there was some sort of weird reflective thing going on with the camera, or the creators failed to see the error.


Also, if you watch the start of the video before the guy jumps, it doesn’t look like you can see anything below the surface of the water. His friends immediately start yelling “shark!” when he surfaces after his jump, but I doubt they would actually be able to see the shark from where they were standing.

Gabe Kapler: Coconut oil is the world’s greatest lube

Gabe-Kapler-RaysFormer MLB outfielder Gabe Kapler is a fitness freak. He was one of the most chiseled players in the league during his 12 seasons as a pro, and Kapler now runs a lifestyle and fitness blog that gives readers pointers on how to stay healthy and fit. He also throws in a few bonuses that might help you with either the ladies or your dominant hand.

On Monday, Kapler wrote a post about the benefits of using coconut oil in everyday life. He claims organic coconut oil is a great teeth whitener, skin rejuvenator, lip moisturizer and more. His closing thoughts on the matter got a bit more saucy, if you will.

You’re moisturized and smelling tropical, your teeth are white and your face looks like you’ve just visited a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. The sun has set, and the moon is out. Perhaps you have a friend nearby, perhaps it’s just you by your lonesome … well, this is awkward. I’ve promised you authenticity, honesty and openness. Take this how you wish and I’ll spare you the step by step. Coconut oil is the world’s greatest lubricant. I can’t help where your mind goes with this. Once the ball leaves the bat, I can’t steer it.

In other words, toss out the KY jelly, Lubriderm, or whatever else you might use during personal time with your lady friend or yourself. Be sure to thank Gabe later.

Little Birdman fan Gianni Zandri is next level with his tattoo detail

Little Birdman fan

Little Birdman fan boy Gianni Zandri is so detailed in his resemblance to the real Birdman — Miami Heat forward Chris Andersen — that it’s really incredible.

Little Birdman has received attention going back to last year when he showed up to Heat games sporting a mohawk. At the time he resembled Birdman, but he didn’t exactly have the full look down.

It wasn’t until later that his dad started taking him to an artist before games so he could have Birdman’s tattoos colored onto his body. According to the New Times, the process took 4.5 hours and was done the first time so Gianni could get a picture with his favorite player.

Little Birdman blew up during Game 6 of the Finals last year when Shaq invited him onto the court and took a picture with him. Soon after LeBron James’ mother Gloria met him and had him take a picture with LeBron. He was even invited into the locker room last year to hold the Larry O’Brien Trophy!

What’s so impressive is Gianni’s attention to detail with the tattoos; as he’s gotten more into it, he’s increased the amount of tattoos he has drawn on his body.

The picture below is from last year’s Finals:

Tracy Morgan car crash scene video is pretty chilling

This video recorded after the fatal car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike early Saturday morning that killed one person and left three including Tracy Morgan in critical condition takes you straight to the scene and is nothing short of chilling.

63-year-old James McNair was killed. Morgan suffered a broken nose, broken ribs and a broken leg in the crash. He supposedly was the person who was pulled from the limo as seen in the video.

Prosecutors say 35-year-old truck driver Kevin Roper had not slept in over 24 hours before the crash that was caused when he plowed into the limo carrying Morgan, McNair, Ardie Fuqua and Jeffrey Millea. Four other vehicles were caught up in the crash but no one from those vehicles were injured.

Roper reportedly is facing one count of second-degree vehicular homicide and four counts of fourth degree assault by auto.

Mark Brunell’s daughter Caitlin wins Miss Alabama


Mark Brunell is not the only winner in his family. The three-time Pro Bowler’s daughter, Caitlin Brunell, was crowned Miss Alabama on Saturday night.

Caitlin, 22, recently graduated from the University of Alabama. She has been dancing since she was 3 years old and performed Disney’s “Let It Go” during the talent portion of the competition.

“I’m in complete shock,” Brunell said after winning the competition, via AL.com. “I don’t know if I even have words to describe, but I have worked so hard for this moment. I could not be more proud to represent this state. This is an absolute honor and blessing. I’m just so thankful.”

Saturday was Brunell’s third time competing in the Miss Alabama pageant. She will now represent Alabama in the Miss America Pageant this September in Atlantic City.

There is a sick Karate Kid mural in Encino on Ventura Blvd


I happened to be driving down Ventura Blvd. in Encino Thursday and spotted this brilliant Karate Kid mural on the side of a Floyd’s 99 barbershop. It was so striking I of course had to stop and take a picture of it and share it here. Why? Because if you like and read LBS, there’s no way you don’t also like “The Karate Kid.” Check that: if you’re a living, breathing human being, there’s no way you don’t like The Karate Kid.

The original Karate Kid actually takes place in “The Valley,” which is what people call the San Fernando Valley part of Los Angeles, which is where I grew up. In the movie, Daniel LaRusso moved from New Jersey to Reseda, which is a city in the Valley. His girlfriend in the movie, Ali Mills, lives in Encino, which is described as a wealthier area in the Valley where some snobs live. I grew up in Encino and am definitely a huge snob, so the stereotype is still accurate. And the karate tournament where Daniel-San beats Johnny by doing the crane stance? That was the All Valley Karate Tournament, which is depicted in the mural.

After doing a little digging around, this story I found in the Argonaut Online provides the best background for the mural. The owner of Floyd’s happened to meet a graffiti artist named Jonas Never at a bar and saw his work. He then commissioned Never to create murals on the sides of various barbershops around the city. Never tries to make the mural fit in with the location of the shop as much as possible, which is how the Encino location got the Karate Kid treatment. There’s also a “Point Break” themed mural at the Hermosa Beach location, an “Outsiders” mural at the Sherman Oaks location, and Never has created many other murals around the Venice area, including one of Arnold.

These are some beautiful works of art that really help bring out the community feel. How can you not love them?
