I remember a while back when a friend of mine linked me to this video. He was abroad in Europe at the time, so I just figured it was some crazy Euro crap. Turns out, it was the greatest thing ever. The video was posted a year ago, and over a million people have viewed it. Make sure you’re one of them. Trust me.
Excuse the back to back X-Games posts, but the Jake Brown crash certainly was worth a looksie, and this, well this is definitely worth your 25 seconds. Check out Kyle Loza who completed the Volt, which is a Moto-X trick he invented. It’s pretty sweet. Well, basically, anytime you’re on a bike and completely let go of it, but wind up back on it, is pretty sweet. Kids, don’t try this at home.
That would be Kyle Loza. Impressive. But not quite as cool as Jake Brown, for obvious reasons.
As Chris Farley said in Tommy Boy, “That was … awwwesome. Sorry about your car.” Or in this case, I guess skateboard would be more appropriate. Children, don’t try this at home:
Yes, and that man did walk away from the crash. Imposible! I’m not a huge X-Games guy, but if they keep these types of charades up, count me in. For the highlights at least. And by the way, that mega ramp is insane. That is exactly why they’re so effing dangerous.
100% Injury Rate dug up footage of something I had never seen before. It’s blindfolded Muay Thai kickboxing. Not sure why anyone would come up with this idea, but it sure produces some interesting video:
Someone please explain to me why Van Damme was able to kick the crap out of Chong Li when he was blinded by the powder thrown in his eyes if it’s that tough in real life. Actually though, something tells me I have seen some similar footage before.
If you remember, that came from the entire FOX Regional Sports Report video series. I highly recommend it.
This only reminds me of the scene from Thank You for Smoking, where Nick Naylor and Senator Finistirre are debating on Dennis Miller’s Show. Dennis decides to open up the show to questions from phone callers, at which point, one proclaims he will kill Nick Naylor. Miller promptly goes to commercial break, saying he has to fire a call screener. That may or not have been the case here. Must see TV:
Seems like everyone — including myself — has had their share of fun with Michael Vick. I really didn’t want to overdo the story, so I’ll just leave it at this. Remember when Vick was the greatest thing to ever hit a gridiron? When he was single-handedly winning games at VaTech and getting traded on draft day for LT? When Michael Vick was no less than a God? Remember back when Michael Vick was the shiznit, and Nike created one of the coolest commercials of all-time? I do:
That commercial was, is, and will always be awesome. Oh, back in the day, when Michael Vick was actually cool. Now, he’s just a useless and hopeless parasite infecting the league. It’s a sad story my friends.
The Hater Nation tips me off to this great video of OJ Simpson who apparently is a character in a football video game. Since I haven’t dominated football video games since Play Action Football on Nintendo back when I was in 1st grade, I don’t have much insight to offer. Luckily for me, Unsilent Majority fills me in:
You might have heard about this new game, All-Pro Football 2K8 (that’s gamer language for “Too Kate” — which I assume is a a tender dedication from the game’s programmer to e-lover). It’s the one that couldn’t get licensing from the NFL so they simply created their own fictional franchises and stocked the rosters with former NFL legends. While the game’s cover features such respectable citizens as John Elway, Jerry Rice, and Barry Sanders
Great, so there’s your background. Now, make sure you watch the clip all the way til the end. You don’t want to miss the final move.
