That is one heck of a spoiled brat

I saw this a week or so ago on Dlisted and intended to post it, but somewhere along the lines, it got lost in the blogging shuffle. Anywhoo, I was watching MTV this morning and My Super Sweet 16 Remix was on, so I got to see all the never-before-seen footage from the shows. Needless to say, my day has been completely made. They just played some footage for Audrey’s sweet 16. I don’t expect you to know who she is. Luckily, here is all you need to know about her:

Yes, much to your and my surprise, people like that actually exist. It’s a sad world.

Damn, Now that’s a Bleepin’ Riot!

Nueva Chicago and Tigre — like I know WTF that means — were trying to play some soccer when … a riot broke out. This isn’t just any riot either; it’s a riot to end all riots. Gang bangers, anarchists, inmates, take note:

Body count: 1

Injury count: 47

Arrest count: 78

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Cubs Fans Dislike Blown Saves

Cubbies were up 8-3 going into the 9th. Which is like most other teams nursing a one-run lead. As you might have guessed, they gave up three runs before Troy Tulowitzki cracked a 3-run home run off Bobby Howry, giving the Rockies the 9-8 lead, much to the dismay of Cub fans everywhere. And one in particular:

My favorite part was the remark of the TV analyst, I think Bob Brenly, who got this blast off:

There’s no IQ test to get into the ballpark and idiots will make their presence known from time-to-time…there’s always one cracker jack in every crowd.

That’s great. I’m also appreciative of Vin Scully and his policy of not showing nut bags like this one on camera so they don’t receive their moment of glory. And I would be remiss if I didn’t include Piniella’s line about the security guard:

“I’ll tell you what,” added Piniella, “[Bears coach] Lovie Smith is looking for him.”

Also check out the video at FanIQ, but there’s someone giving an annoying narrative. Imagine what would’ve happened if the Cubs hadn’t won!

Spelling Bee All-Time Greatest Hits

We must remember, well before the legendary Evan O’Dorney burst onto the scene for his 2007 world takeover, there were many spellers before him. Spellers who longed to raise the Scripps trophy and appear in awkward interview after awkward interview. Spellers who set the standards and expectations for proper Bee demeanor. Legends such as Rebecca Sealfon:

And Akshay Buddiga who was KO’d by the power of a word:

We musn’t forget that the chickens have large talons either:

And of course, nobody can beat the great Mr. O’Dorney:

Long live the bee, viva La Spelling Bee!

Evan O’Dorney’s World Takeover 2007

With the way he’s keeping things up, I might have to give the kid his own freaking category. He’s amazing. My boy was on TV once again to receive some props for winning the 2007 Scripps National Spelling Bee. Oh, and let me tell you, this was quite the interview for the ages. I promise you the TV personality asking the questions will never forget this one.

Thanks to Matt Watson for passing along the video, courtesy of FanHouse.

Moonwalking Mascots Crack Me Up

I’ve already expressed my affection for breakdancing mascots on the site, and the following video is certainly no exception. This appears to be from a Harlem Globetrotters game and it’s freaking hilarious. What gets me off is the ability of the mascot to continuously move around without using its hands. Check it out:

Jimmy Kimmel Fun with Evan O’Dorney

OK, not long ago I expressed my fondness for 2007 Spelling Bee champion Evan O’Dorney. I showed you the interview he did on Cold Pizza First Take courtesy of Awful Announcing, which was almost as inspiring as the bee-winning performance he gave at the competition. Well my man Mr. O’Dorney is now making the rounds on TV, participating in a skit with Jimmy Kimmel most recently. Only problem, Evan, as you might have figured, didn’t get the joke. Check out this clip sent to me by my buddy Andy Liu. It had me laughing literally out loud:
