Bryan Cox started having sex when he was 10 (Video)

Bryan Cox has been the breakout star of this year’s edition of HBO “Hard Knocks.”

The Atlanta Falcons defensive line coach is still the exact same wild man he was during his 12-year playing career as a linebacker for the Dolphins, Bears and Jets most notably. He has no filter, and that led to one of the greatest lines of the show.

Cox was using the projector to show family photos during a team meeting, and he showed a picture of his 30-year-old daughter. Cox is 46, which means he was 15 or 16 when she was conceived. The old age of his daughter led one curious player to ask how old Cox is. That’s when we got the line of the century.

“I told you I started f—ing when I was 10.”

If that shocks you, let me remind you that this was what Cox infamously did prior to a game in Buffalo in ’93:

Rhode Island Little League coach Dave Belisle gives incredible speech after loss (Video)

Dave-Belisle-speechThe worst thing about the Little League World Series is watching young kids deal with the agony of defeat. Rhode Island coach Dave Belisle made losing a little less difficult with his amazing speech after his team suffered a heartbreaking 8-7 loss against Illinois on Monday night.

Belisle, who coaches the All-Stars from the town of Cumberland, had some inspirational words for his 12-year old players. In an era where youth sports coaches take winning far too seriously, Belisle was a breath of fresh air.

“There’s no disappointment in your effort, in the whole tournament, in the whole season. It’s been an incredible journey,” Belisle began. “Look at the score — 8-7, 12-10 in hits. We came to the last out. We didn’t quit. That’s us. That’s us.

“The only reason why I’ll probably end up shedding a tear is because this is the last time I’m gonna end up coaching you guys. But I’m gonna bring back with me, and the coaching staff is gonna bring back, and you guys are gonna bring back something that no other team can provide — that’s pride.”

Belisle tried to explain to the team that they were responsible for so much excitement in their town and the entire New England region. While that may be difficult for young kids to grasp right after a loss, they’ll appreciate it over time.

“We’re one of the best teams in the world. Think about that for a second — the world,” Belisle added. “We need to go see our parents because they’re so proud of you.

“I love you guys. I’m gonna love you forever. You’ve given me the most precious moment of my athletic and coaching career, and I’ve been coaching a long time. I’m getting to be an old man. I need memories like this. I need kids like this. You’re all my boys.”

If his speech was any indication, any parent whose kid has played for Belisle is lucky. The world is filled with jackasses who have no idea how to handle young children playing sports. Belisle represents the opposite end of the spectrum.

Kobe Bryant takes over 1995 high school playoff game (Video)

Kobe-Bryant-high-schoolAny NBA fan has seen highlights of Kobe Bryant taking over a game. The five-time NBA champion scored 81 points in a single game once, and he has scored 50 or more in a game 25 times in his career. But have you ever seen Kobe dominate in high school? We have you covered.

In 1995, Kobe put Lower Merion High School on his back during a state tournament game against Norristown. Bryant, who wore No. 33 as a teenager, knocked down three 3-pointers in the third quarter and rallied his team back to tie the game heading into the fourth. He then completely took over.

Kobe hit shots from inside the paint and beyond the arc en route to 18 points in the fourth quarter alone. He finished with 35 points (just 6 in the first half) and 12 rebounds to send Lower Merion to the semifinals.

“We came out in the second half and were like, ‘This is our half. We’re not gonna lose this,’” a young Kobe said after the win. “I sort of felt a personal challenge because I’ve been putting a lot of pressure on myself … There was no way I was going down without a fight. I put my best on the floor.”

Different year, same Kobe.

Brian Orakpo does Johnny Manziel hand gesture after sack (GIF)

GIF: Brian Orakpo breaks out the money celly after Ryan Kerri... on Twitpic

The Washington Redskins got a sack on Johnny Manziel in the first quarter of Monday’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, and one of their players decided to mock Manziel.

Ryan Kerrigan sacked Johnny Football on the backup quarterback’s first drive of the game. Brian Orakpo decided to act appropriately.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this. When JJ Watt sacked Aaron Rodgers, he mocked him with the Discount Double Check belt celebration.

If quarterbacks are going to have signature celebrations, they better be prepared to have defenders throw it back in their face when they screw up or get sacked.

Here’s what Johnny looks like when he does his hand gesture:

Joe Mikulik strips in latest ejection meltdown (Video)

Joe-Mikulik-stripsJoe Mikulik is one of the most famous minor league baseball managers in the country. Why? Because he has a knack for throwing some downright epic temper tantrums. Mikulik was at it again on Sunday, this time stripping some of his clothes off and leaving them at home plate after being ejected.

Mikulik, who is currently managing the Class A Myrtle Beach Pelicans, was furious after infielder Luis Mendez was called out at home plate. He proceeded to imitate Mendez’s slide into home two times to make his point while screaming at the umpiring crew. Mikulik then took his shoes and jersey off, dropped them on home plate and made an emphatic safe sign.

Mikulik first became famous in 2006 when he dumped water all over home plate after being run from a game. Several years later, he picked up third base and handed it to a fan after being ejected. The guy obviously knows he’s a YouTube sensation.

Guy who lost fantasy football league had to make embarrassing calendar


From this day forward, every person who comes in last place in their fantasy sports league should have to create an embarrassing calendar of him or herself. It’s a phenomenal idea, though I’m not sure anyone could pull it off as well as Henry Stern here did.

A Deadspin reader recently shared his fantasy football league’s hilarious punishment for the last place owner, and I can’t stop laughing.

Henry, who missed the playoffs and finished in last, had to create a calendar of himself in compromising and embarrassing positions. This was part of an agreed-upon punishment for the last-place owner in the league. Stern told the New York Daily News all his friends who compete in the league agreed upon the punishment because they wanted a consequence so owners missing the playoffs would have incentive to continue trying.

The first year they began doing the punishments, the last-place owner had to get a tattoo. The second year they did it the last-place guy had to perform standup comedy. Last year the punishment was posing for a “;Titanic’-style, full-frontal nude portrait,” according to Stern.

The nude portrait appeared on the cover of the calendar, which saw Stern in many great poses.

The Prince Fielder Body Issue imitation that you see above was probably the best, though there are plenty more on Stern’s Instagram page.
