LeBron James Dumb and Dumber mashup is fantastic (Video)

You know what has been the best thing about LeBron James returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers? The hilarious memes and mashups the internet has pumped out. The “Dumb and Dumber” scooter scene is no exception.

If you have seen “Dumb and Dumber” — and if you haven’t I don’t know what’s wrong with you — this mashup really needs no explanation. It’s one of the best comedy movie scenes of all time and fits perfectly for LeBron’s decision. Absolute A+ work.

Which did you think was better — the “Dumb and Dumber” mashup or LeBron hitting Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade with a chair WWE style?

Floyd Mayweather should have worn high heels to the ESPYS

Floyd Mayweather Maria Sharapova

The ESPYS gave us one of the better pairings in history when they had Maria Sharapova team with Floyd Mayweather Jr. to present an award on Wednesday. And if there’s anything in the world that could bruise Floyd’s ego, it might be Maria’s height.

Floyd is 5-foot-8 and about 150 pounds. Sharapova is 6-foot-2 and about 130 pounds. Floyd’s a little guy. Maria is a huge woman. Stick Maria in some heels, and all of a sudden she’s looking like an NBA small forward.

The two actually played well off each other; Floyd got an elaborate “The Money Team” introduction skit from Drake. In response, Sharapova intentionally dwarfed him on stage to remind him who’s bigger. Floyd surprisingly was cool with the whole thing. Maybe that’s because he carries around a copy of his bank account balance and looks at it any time he’s feeling down.

At least the two gave us their best “Step Brothers” portrait:

The last time I saw a pairing this funny on the TV screen was when Arnold and Danny DeVito teamed up in “Junior.” If they ever tried to kiss, do you think Floyd would have to stand on a step stool? I mean, that’s what these two had to do when they kissed.

Giancarlo Stanton home run leaves fan’s hand swollen and nasty

Giancarlo-Stanton-homer-fans-hand

The Home Run Derby is the only event of the MLB season where the outfield bleachers are the best seats in the house. You know a home run ball is coming your way at some point, you just have to be willing to make a play on it. Jordan Jacobson did just that, and his hand paid the price.

On Monday night, Jacobson got his hand on one of the Giancarlo Stanton home runs that didn’t travel over 500 feet and almost leave Target Field. He was left with a swollen mess and no souvenir.

“It was extremely painful at first, then went numb after about 15 minutes,” Jacobson told Page Q Sports. “It probably would have felt better if I would have gotten the ball.”

We know grown men bringing gloves to the ballpark is frowned upon, but it would be slightly more acceptible if it’s the Home Run Derby and you’re in Stanton’s path of destruction. Jacobson knows that for next time.

UPDATE: As it turns out, Jacobson actually has a birth defect and did not try to catch a Stanton homer. He admitted on Twitter Thursday morning that he was lying.

Kirk Minihane: Erin Andrews is a ‘gutless bitch,’ should drop dead (Video)

Erin-AndrewsKirk Minihane is about to become a household name. Minihane is the third man in studio on WEEI Boston’s “Dennis and Callahan Show.” Those who listen to the show know how outspoken he can be, but Minihane crossed the line with his criticism of Erin Andrews on Wednesday morning.

After Adam Wainwright told reporters he grooved a fast ball to Derek Jeter in the first inning of Tuesday night’s All-Star game, the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher backtracked in an interview with Erin Andrews. Minihane disagreed with the way Andrews handled her line of questioning, to say the least.

“I hate her! what a gutless bitch! Go away. Drop dead. I mean, seriously what the hell is wrong with her? First of all, follow-up. Second of all, the guy admitted he did it. He told reporters he threw a couple of pipe bombs. How is that social media’s fault?

“I hate her. Don’t you love social media? Yeah … social media is — shut up. Shut up. I’m sure she’s a nice person, but she’s … she’s probably a bitch. I hate her.”

Personally, I didn’t see any issue with the questions Andrews asked. Wainwright’s initial comments about serving one up to Jeter had already become a big story, so she was simply doing her job. And since the All-Star Game is a light-hearted affair to begin with, I don’t see the issue with the “Don’t you just love social media?” comment.

Like his collegues John Dennis and Gerry Callahan, Minihane is a blowhard. Disagreeing with a line of questioning is fine, but there’s no need to call Andrews a bitch and tell her to drop dead. There are plenty of other ways to get attention if you’re that desperate.

Colin Kaepernick: ‘A lot of times I X a girl out before I even talk to her’ (Video)

jim-harbaugh-colin-kaepernickColin Kaepernick had to have been the most interesting man on the red carpet at the ESPYs pre-party in Hollywood Tuesday night. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who was rocking an enormous gold chain, answered a number of entertaining questions from gossip reporters.

Kaepernick seemed uncomfortable when asked which female athlete he would like to see appear in ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue, but he had no problem revealing that he was single and listing some of the important qualities he looks for in women.

“Obviously you have to be gorgeous,” Kaepernick said. “You’ve got to be physically attracted to someone. You have to be smart — someone I can actually talk to and have a conversation with. And someone I can have a good time with. I don’t want to sit and be bored, I want to have a good time.”

The reporter then asked Kaepernick about relationship deal-breakers.

“I think the biggest thing is just a girl’s attitude — the vibe she gives off, how she carries herself,” he said. “A lot of times I X a girl out before I even talk to her.”

Those are some pretty tough standards. People usually give women a chance to at least speak before crossing them off the list, but not Kaepernick. The 26-year-old also said “of course” when asked if he is single. So remember, ladies — if you’re looking to date Colin, try not to spoil it before you even get a chance to speak to him.

LeBron James attacks Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh with chair WWE style (Video)

LeBron James’ decision to leave the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers would not be complete without a WWE version of the saga.

In the humorous video above, LeBron goes after Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with a chair WWE-style. Of course, that video is just a sequel to the original. You may recall that when LeBron left Cleveland for Miami four years ago, someone made a video of him turning heel like Hulk Hogan joining NWO:

What might actually top all that is this video of Dan Gilbert running into the WWF ring to rescue LeBron James, who was taking all sorts of abuse from Pat Riley:

Jennie Finch blew fastballs by Adrian Peterson (GIF)

Adrian Peterson is a tremendous competitor, but even NFL superstars have to be careful what they wish for sometimes. During Sunday’s All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game, Peterson challenged softball star Jennie Finch to throw the whole slow-pitch softball thing out the window and bring the heat.

Finch threw Peterson three straight fastballs during his second at-bat of the game. His reaction was priceless:

Adrian-Peterson-Jennie-Finch

After whiffing on the first, AP got credit for fouling off the next two. It’s unclear if he actually made contact, as he later said “it’s possible” and Finch jokingly replied that he’s “full of it.”

“I said, ‘Don’t take it easy on me. I want you to come with a fastball,’” Peterson explained, via ESPN.com. “She said, ‘What else?’ I said, ‘Changeup.’ Initially, I thought she was going to continue to throw them underhand, but she saw I was serious.”

Peterson also said he probably hasn’t swung a bat in 15 years, and it showed. Finch is a master of her trade. We all know what Peterson can do on the gridiron, but he’s clearly no match for Jennie.
