Shaun White shows new double-cork 1440 trick for Sochi (Video)

Shaun WhiteShaun White is already the best snowboarder on the planet, and now he is adding a new trick to the repertoire.

In a video posted by his sponsor GoPro on Thursday, White showed off his new front double-cork 1440 trick that he will be using at the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February. White unveiled the Double McTwist 1260 for the Vancouver Olympics, where he won gold in the halfpipe for the second time. White will be looking for his third consecutive Winter Games gold medal in the halfpipe, and with a move like this, it’s highly likely that he captures it.

Roy Hibbert proud he photobombed Stephen A. Smith, Sage Steele

Roy-Hibbert-photobombIndiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert ended his night on Wednesday with a well-executed photobomb of the NBA on ESPN crew. The 7-foot-2 center stood off in the distance behind Sage Steele, Stephen A. Smith and Avery Johnson as they were recapping Indiana’s game against the Miami Heat. When Steele noticed that the crew was being photobombed, she invited Hibbert over.

Hibbert took the invite as an opportunity to harass Stephen A. about his receding hairline, which was pretty entertaining. Smith responded by asking Hibbert if his hairline is better than LeBron James’, but Hibbert did not take the bait. And Hibbert was proud of his photobombing work.

Considering Hibbert was visiting the home arena of the photobomb master himself, that was a pretty bold move.

Old guy kicks Arizona State student in the face (Video)

Old-guy-kicks-ASU-studentAn old guy and an Arizona State student walk into a football game. Anyone heard this joke before? That’s because it’s not a joke.

The old dude kicks the Arizona State student directly in the face, that’s what happens.

We don’t really have much context to provide other than to tell you a Deadspin reader sent this video in this week after capturing it at the Arizona-Arizona State game on Saturday. It’s pretty self explanatory that the senior citizen and young man were angry with each other over something. The next thing you know a boot is flying and fists are raining down.

Don’t let my gray hair fool ya.

Grandma funnels a beer at Penn State tailgate (Video)

Grandma-beer-funnelPenn State put a hurting on Purdue on Saturday to improve to 6-4 on the season. Thanks to the grandma who funneled a beer during the pregame festivities, everyone was a winner before the first whistle even sounded.

According to Deadspin, the little spitfire you see above is someone’s 75-year-old grandmother. She funneled a beer like an absolute champ during a tailgate party before the game. It took grandma a few seconds to get going, but once she got the beer bong valve open she slammed down the suds in about five seconds.

I’m not the best example because I was never a great funneler, but granny would put a hurting on me. I don’t even think I could beat her in my collegiate prime.

Michigan president Mary Sue Coleman sounded super drunk during halftime speech (Video)

Mary Sue Coleman MichiganUniversity of Michigan school president Mary Sue Coleman sounded super drunk when she gave a speech at halftime of the school’s home loss to Nebraska on Saturday. I mean this is just really bad.

Deadspin cautions that people may have health conditions when they sound this badly while giving a speech — such as a stroke or other issue. I don’t know if it was that, something else, or just a simple matter of her being trashed — which is what it sounded like — but that was awful.

Michigan fans certainly thought she was hammered. Check out this tweet:

It also sounds like Coleman was being honored on Saturday.

She may have enjoyed a few too many toasts if that was the case.

Skydivers survive crazy plane crash (Video)

Skydivers plane crashThis is just absolutely crazy. Nine skydivers survived a jump from 12,000 feet above Wisconsin over the weekend even though the plane from which they were jumping was involved in a fiery crash.

The video, shared by NBC News, shows the entire scene as the skydivers had videocameras on them for the jump.

Because they were experienced skydivers and about to make their jump, all nine divers survived. So did the pilot of the plane that lost a wing, though he was injured. Per NBC, the pilot had on an emergency parachute and escaped through an emergency chute and suffered cuts. That was seriously insane.

Of course this isn’t the first time a ivdeo of Miss Tessmacher twerking hit the ‘net. A few months ago we saw this:
