Josh Reddick takes picture spread eagle showing off his superhero underwear

Josh Reddick underwear

The world has now seen more of Josh Reddick than it ever wanted to see.

After starting off the season slowly, the Oakland A’s outfielder started to heat up in July-September. He finished the season on a tear, going 14-for-29 (.483) over his last eight games to raise his average to .264.

It seems like his turnaround may have something to do with a pair of superhero underwear.

The A’s beat the Rangers 4-0 Sunday to clinch the final wild card spot in the AL and Reddick celebrated by running around in superhero underwear.

One of his teammates didn’t mind for one reason.

Below is the full, spread-eagle picture in all its glory. It could scar you for life.

Kevin Durant says he plays as LeBron James in NBA 2K15

lebron-james-kevin-durantKevin Durant is one of the best basketball players in the world and also a basketball video game enthusiast. You figure he’d use himself and the Oklahoma City Thunder when he plays basketball video games, but he says that’s not the case.

During an interview with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday, Durant said he wouldn’t play as himself in NBA 2K15 because that would be too arrogant. Then he said he would play the game with anyone, but when pressed, he admitted he plays as LeBron James.

The bit seemed a little scripted, but it was nonetheless humorous. And despite being rivals who are competing against each other for NBA championships, LeBron and Durant actually have a good relationship, though Durant has said he was tired of finishing behind LeBron in things.

Tiny Titan is the best of all the Madden 15 glitches

Madden 15 is loaded with hilarious glitches that we have never seen before from the most famous NFL video game in history, but Tiny Titan tops them all. We were introduced to the little phenom, who can’t be more than a foot tall, over the weekend as his best and worst plays went viral.


The player who was somehow shrunken down is former Iowa linebacker Christian Kirksey, who is currently on the Cleveland Browns roster. While tiny Kirksey has the ability to break up passes by grabbing and nipping at ankles, he seems to struggle a bit on kick returns.

Tiny Titan is not, however, afraid to jump on a loose ball and risk being squashed like a bug.

How does he high-five his teammates, you ask? Mini Kirksey finds a way.

Can this really be considered a glitch or is it just a hilarious joke from the creators of the latest Madden installment? It has to be the latter.

Madden 15 full of glitches – here are the best (Video)

Madden 15 seems like a pretty awesome video game but, like many new releases, it has its share of glitches.

Madden 15 glitchOur friend Samuel Lam at Yahoo! Sports was playing the game with his beloved 49ers and came across the glitch seen above. Defensive back gets pancaked by a block, then suddenly pops up like he’s been surged by some defibrillators, and he spins around like he’s being controlled by a puppet on strings.

That was something. Still, nothing compares to this glitch, which is like the best of all time.

That was the best glitch we’ve seen. Many other players have encountered glitches in the game that are usually similar and involve a weird fall or gravity-defying move. Check them all out below:

Eli Manning’s ‘Manning Face’ appears in Madden 15

Eli Manning face Madden

It’s truly incredible how realistic video games are getting these days.

Madden 15 dropped on Tuesday and EA Sports’ Madden Twitter account has been retweeting some of the awesome finds by game players. One of the best finds has to be Eli Manning making the infamous “Manning Face” in the game.

How awesome is that? I mean that is the exact face Eli makes when he gets crossed up with a receiver and throws his third pick of the game.

How did they nail that? Did they dress Eli up in one of those body suits and record every one of his facial movements? That was incredible.

Another cool realistic aspect of the game — players being checked for concussions on the sidelines:

Despite all the great advancements, a few glitches have been discovered …

That dude went flying like it was Spike going up against one of the “Little Giants.” I’m guessing that wasn’t supposed to be in the game.

Bruce Lee will be a character in ‘EA Sports UFC’ video game


Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to be Bruce Lee? The legendary actor and director is considered one of the most influential martial artists of all time. Thanks to EA Sports’ new UFC game, you will now be able to kick ass as Bruce Lee.

As Bloody Elbow pointed out, EA Sports was teasing a “mystery character” for “EA Sports UFC” all last week. On Sunday, the gaming juggernaut officially announced that users will be able to unlock Lee and fight with him in any of four weight divisions from 125 pounds to 155 pounds.

“You have the premier organization in the fastest growing sport in the world, the UFC; and the most iconic martial artist in the history of the world, Bruce Lee – a martial artist renowned for his philosophies that laid the groundwork for modern mixed martial arts,” Brian Hayes, the creative director of the game, explained about the decision to include Lee. “I can’t conceive of a universe where bringing these two things together doesn’t make sense.”

Lee can be unlocked either by pre-ordering the game before its release or completing “career mode” at pro difficulty or higher. And if you lose while fighting as him, you’ll be banned from the game for a month. Just kidding, but that probably should be a rule.

Madden has Broncos winning Super Bowl 31-28 in overtime (Video)

Peyton Manning celebrationEA Sports’ popular John Madden video game is touting itself as a great Super Bowl predictor. They boast that they have correctly predicted 9 of the last 11 big games, so naturally people were curious to see how they predict Super Bowl XLVIII will play out.

EA released video of their prediction on Monday, and the video is pretty awesome … if you’re a Broncos fan. Yes, Madden has Denver winning 31-28 in overtime. They also have Richard Sherman delivering a pick six on Peyton Manning. Can you imagine that happening? Madden has the Seahawks scoring twice to come back and making a 2-point conversion to tie the game and send it to OT, which would obviously be thrilling.

I have the Seahawks winning the game and I think it will be lower scoring, but this prediction was fun to watch.
