Vick Ballard falls while attempting 40 at combine (Video)

Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard was trying a wee bit too hard to make a good impression at the Combine Sunday. Attempting to run the 40-yard dash, Ballard took a few steps before stumbling out of the gates. He ended up crashing into a tripod and taking it out.

Hey Vick, we know the Combine is pressure-packed, but ease up and chill out bro. You try too hard you end up crashing and burning. Ballard’s final 40 time was a 4.65, which placed him toward the bottom of the running back list.

Video: Ole Miss DT Terrell Brown Sits on Chair and it Collapses

If Ole Miss’ offensive playcalling isn’t working, and neither is their tackling, why would we expect the chairs on their sidelines to also work? We probably shouldn’t.

In what can qualify as a microcosm for Ole Miss’ season, junior defensive tackle Terrell Brown, who is 6’11” and 415 pounds (though the team’s roster lists him at 390), went to sit down on a chair during his team’s loss to LSU and it collapsed. Here is a video via Guyism:

Not even the chairs work properly when you’re 2-9 and 0-7 in conference. Then again, those tiny folding chairs really aren’t meant to hold up 400-pound dudes anyway, are they?

Jinx: FOX 4 Dallas-Fort Worth Said Rangers Won World Series (Picture)

Texas Rangers fans looking for a scapegoat to blame after losing Game 6 have to look no further than Dallas-Forth Worth TV station KDFW. At some point during the game, that message appeared on at least one mobile phone. Obviously it was premature because the Cardinals came back to win the game 10-9 in 11 innings.

First we had Buckner. Then we had Bartman. Now we have the KDFW mobile phone jinx.

Fail.

Cardinals Fan Taunts Nyjer Morgan with Poster, Fails (Picture)

Even though the Cardinals have already eliminated the Brewers from the postseason, Milwaukee antagonist Nyjer Morgan remains a popular figure in St. Louis. Fans who hung out behind the Baseball Tonight set outside Busch Stadium after Game 1 of the World Series were chanting his name relentlessly. And of course there was the one pea-brained Cardinals fan who thought he’d be smart and taunt the Brewers center fielder by pointing out that Milwaukee was at home, while St. Louis played on. Only one problem: might want to brush up on your spelling before you try to make fun of someone.

Fail.

Cheerleader Falls into Pool During Dance Routine at Pan Am Games (Video)

The U.S. had a strong showing on the opening day of the Pan Am Games Saturday, winning 14 medals. They enjoyed success in the swimming pool, capturing 11 of the 14 medals in aquatic events. Things went much better for them in the water than one unfortunate lady.

Cheerleader Mariana de Leon fell into the swimming pool after misjudging how much space she had while doing a dance routine. The rest of the dance team continued their moves until de Leon was pulled out of the water and rejoined them.

Here’s a video of her spill:

ESPN Heisman Trophy Graphic Fail

Hmm, and I always thought percentages were supposed to add up to 100. Maybe I should have paid more attention the day we went over fractions in math class.

If you were curious about the real information, ESPN’s Heisman Trophy Experts Poll has Andrew Luck first on 11 of 15 ballots. Russell Wilson is second and Kellen Moore is third. Here is how their 15 experts voted in a poll posted on October 11th:

I’ve added the numbers every way possible and still didn’t get their percentages.

TBS Cameraman Eats it Filming Adrian Beltre’s Home Run Trot

For everyone who thinks we watch the games to see how our teams will play, or to witness world class athletes perform, you’re wrong; we watch for the sole purpose of seeing moments like this. Other people’s failures, such as this cameraman biting the dust trying to follow Adrian Beltre as he rounded third, that makes our day. I’ll be disappointed if Southwest doesn’t turn this into a “Wanna get away?” commercial.
