Frank Caliendo crushes this 30 for 30 Richard Sherman mockumentary (Video)

Frank Caliendo was just awesome in this hilarious 30 for 30 mockumentary on Richard Sherman. I mean awesome.

Some people like Caliendo, others don’t, but I’ve always been a fan. I like his content, think he’s funny, and love almost all of his impressions. But this was just next level awesome. From his Andy Reid to his Ron Jaworski and Adam Schefter and Chris Berman, he was great. But the best of all was his Jon Gruden. Man was he awesome at it. He seriously looked and talked just like Gruden. Unbelievable. I think he looks more like Jon Gruden that Jon Gruden looks like Gruden.

Seahawks fans celebrated Super Bowl win without jaywalking

The 12th Man was more than a little excited with the way the Seattle Seahawks played in the Super Bowl on Sunday. I’m sure a couch was being burned on some college campus in Washington and a car was being flipped elsewhere, but some Seahawks fans were beyond classy while celebrating. We’re talking don’t cross the street without pushing the walk button classy.

That’s right, a large group of Seahawks fans were careful not to jaywalk as they were partying in the streets. They patiently waited for a walk light to turn green and traffic to stop before crossing the street to hoot, holler and high-five.

I’ve seen Red Sox fans cross the street without looking after a midseason game on a Wednesday. Bravo, 12th Man. Except for that one guy who sprinted across early — damn jaywalkers.

Radio Shack wins with 80s Super Bowl commercial (Video)

Everyone I know who was watching the Super Bowl seemed to enjoy the Radio Shack Super Bowl commercial. And what wasn’t there to love about it?

It was Radio Shack recognizing that their image is one of having an old, outdated store, so they mocked themselves for it. Self-deprecating humor is always good, especially when you can mix in Hulk Hogan, the California Raisins, Erik Estrada, Mary Lou Retton, Alf and other pop culture icons from the ’80s. They also targeted a good demographic — those who are in their 30s and 40s who have money to spend on technology and can relate to all the figures in the commercial.

Well done, Radio Shack, well done.

And reminder to everyone: when in doubt, go with the Hulk.

Ian Rapoport high-fives a fan right in the face (GIF)

Ian-Rapoport-high-fiveIan Rapoport is one the best NFL reporters in the business today. I’ve been a huge fan since he covered the New England Patriots for the Boston Herald, and his work with the NFL Network has been equally stellar. Let’s just hope Ian didn’t lose a fan on Friday by accidentally smacking him in the face.

Rapoport was reporting live from Times Square in New York City when his colleague Andrew Siciliano told him to turn around and high-five some of the fans that had gathered behind him. It didn’t go so well, and Rapoport ended up smacking some dude directly in the eye. He apologized on Twitter as soon as he realized.

No harm, no foul. Unless the guy lost a contact — that’s never any fun.

Dumbest woman ever mouths off to judge, gets 300 days in jail (Video)

Ebony BurksThis video is actually from last summer, but I saw it for the first time this week and thought it was too awesome not to share here.

According to The Chronicle-Telegram’s story from August, the woman in the video is 32-year-old Ebony Burks, and she was being arraigned on domestic violence charges. Burks was appearing via video from Lorain County Jail and actually was pretty composed when she pleaded not guilty. But things took a turn for the worst when she realized that terms of the restraining order imposed by Elyria Municipal Court Judge Gary Bennett included her avoiding all contact with the two alleged victims, meaning she couldn’t go to the home she shared with her grandfather.

As soon as Burks puts it together that she can’t go home, the fireworks begin. I mean she just brings out the A+ attitude. She tells the judge “I bet I do” go home as if she’s the boss, and then she just can’t shut up as the judge continues to hit her with 30-day contempt of court charges. It starts off at 30 and escalates all the way up to 300, which was a record for Bennett, thanks to a couple of hearty F-bombs at the end. She was just like that kid trying to be cool in elementary school while the teacher is threatening with detention. Only this was real life, and jail is much worse than detention.

Well done, Burks, well done. I guess if you’re going to go hard, might as well go all the way.

Shane Battier’s ‘Battioke’ karaoke event was a huge hit again (Videos)

Miami-Heat-Ken-Jeong-KaraokeMiami Heat forward Shane Battier has been holding an annual karaoke event for charity over the past several years, and each year seems to be better than the last. The event is one of the most entertaining of the year and has brought us a number of Heat players and celebrities hurting our ear drums for a great cause. Monday night was no exception.

In my opinion, Battier, Greg Oden and actor Ken Jeong stole the show with their rendition of the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way.” The fact that Jeong is 5-foot-5 and was standing between a 6-foot-8 guy and a 7-footer is hilarious in itself. He barely came up to their waists.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem — all rocking shirts that said “The Heatles” — also killed it with their performance of “Blurred Lines.” Two years ago, LeBron stole the show when he took the stage rocking a wig and sang “Super Freak.”

Fan has epic meltdown after Batista wins Royal Rumble (Video)

Wrestling fanBatista winning the Royal Rumble over the weekend did not go over well with wrestling fans. Check that: anyone other than Daniel Bryan winning the Royal Rumble would probably have gone over poorly with fans.

But was anyone more heated over the outcome of the event than this fine lad?

Just look at this dude. First he rips the thing off the wall. Then comes the heated declaration, “I’m never ordering the f—ing pay-per-view again ever!” that you know he’ll never live up to. Then comes some more angry ranting. And then guy starts looking around for more crap to break.

That was beautiful. Thank goodness some blessed soul had the presence to record the fantastic moment.
