Jonathan Papelbon Does the Irish Jig

I just don’t even know what to make of this video. Is he drunk? Is he high? Is he just that giddy? Either way, he’s challenging Joakim Noah for the biggest clown yet. Brace yourself:

Napoleon Dynamite would not be proud. Thanks to 100% Injury Rate for the vid.

James Madison and Coastal Carolina Mascots Wants in on the Action

Considering I’ve established this site as an emerging hotbed of mascot melees, I’m quite surprised I missed the brouhaha between the James Madison mascot and the Coastal Carolina mascot. For starters, we had the Orioles bird and the Devil Rays Raymond dancing off, then the Oregon Duck kicked the Houston Cougars’ ass, and I thought things ended with the Chiefs mascot belly-flopped on a streaking fan. I guess I was wrong. Via the DC Sports Bog (& Grill), and I’m not going to even try and explain which mascot belongs to which school; that would only ruin the fun:

My So-Called Fantasy Football Life

SI Extra Mustard’s Hot Clicks knows exactly who I am.  They have gotten to the bottom of my fantasy football soul, and have placed it on tape.  It’s a sad story.

My Kids Can Play for Mike Gundy

Because if he defends his players like this after they get ripped unfairly by the media, then he’s quite the protector.

Congrats Mike Gundy, that’s the way to stand up for a player. And as far as Jennie Carlson goes, don’t pick on a kid just because his mother fed him food after a game. To infer he’s a weak player because of one such incident is absolutely absurd. Way out of line.

O.J.’s Voicemail Speaks

The guys over at SI.com’s Extra Mustard (they compile some of the best links of the day), put me onto the latest in the OJ scandal. Check out the madness on OJ’s home voicemail. Don’t ask me how they got it.

That’s not bad, but not quite as good as Randy Moss’ answering machine from last week, I’ll have to admit.

Leave Bill Belichick Alone!

Seemingly right on cue, just moments after posting the video of the Britney Spears defender, I came across this incredible gem. First, you must see the Spears video. After you take a peek at that, feast your eyeballs on this:

Thanks to the awesomeness of Ballhype for the video. That was truly incredible. Oh yeah, and leeeavve Bill Belichick alllooone!!!

Novak Djokovic, Hilarious Impressions

You probably saw the clips rolling around on SportsCenter last night, but they’re too good for me not to post. Young stud tennis player Novak Djokovic of Serbia, who has reached three straight grand slam semifinals (and who this blogger believes has the best backhand in the game), might also be the most entertaining personality in the game as well. Check out the impressions he broke out with following his quarterfinal victory. First it’s Sharapova, then it’s Rafael Nadal.

That video was thanks to unabashed tennis fan Chris Mottram over at Mr. Irrelevant and The Postmen. Little did I know however, that Novak is quite well-known for these impressions. Check out these ones as well:

Anyone who can rip off a Goran performance is OK in my book. Nicely done Novak, nicely done.
