Lebron Getting Dunked On Video

posted by IntrinsicBent

All the hype over Lebron James getting dunked on by an unknown college player and the subsequent confiscation of video tape by Storm Troopers Nike officials seems to be misplaced.

This video by a pirate on eBaum's World left me wondering "Is that it?"  It was basically a fly by and not worthy of taking film away from anyone at all.

I thought it would be a mugging like this.

Lance Armstrong Is Gaining

posted by MoneyMouth

I'm not going to sit here and pretend I'm some sort of cycling enthusiast.  I'm not.  I don't even understand cycling, aside from the fact that you are supposed to ride fast and that the cycling team is crucial for any one rider's success.  Even so, I'm keeping my eye on the Tour de France this year.  Why?  Because Lance Armstrong is back.

In case you didn't know, Armstrong retired from competitive cycling
after winning his 7th consecutive tour in 2005 only to return earlier this year.  Now at the age of 37, not many people are expecting Armstrong to do very much and yet Armstrong is already showing he is here to be competitive.  On day 3 of this race, Lance moved up from 10th to 3rd, proving that his age and his experience might actually be his advantage.  With heavy winds yesterday plaguing the group, Armstrong anticipated the conditions and hitched a ride with the leaders allowing him to leap frog the rest of the competition. 

While it is still much too early in the race to say that this will make an overall difference, it is impressive to see that Lance Armstrong can still be competitive.  So until July 26th, I'll be periodically flipping the channel over to Versus and staring blankly as I try to figure out what is going on out there.  On second thought, I'll just watch the Sportscenter highlights.

******Update*****
Lance Armstrong has pulled into second place thanks to his team's victory in Tuesday's time trial.  Had his team beat team Saxo by one more second, Armstrong would be wearing the yellow jersey tomorrow.

Sports Douche of the Week

posted by MoneyMouth

Arland Bruce III, whose nickname is "Mr. Mature," was fined this past week by the CFL for his excessive touchdown celebration which paid homage to the King of Pop.  I know that you're probably expecting a crotch-grab, or a moonwalk, or maybe even a thriller-zombie move.  I mean, that is what would make most sense.  Instead, Bruce passed up all those and went for the most idiotic tribute you can think of.


I guess someone forgot to tell him tributes are usually oriented to the life of the person and not their current state of death.  When asked after the game why he removed his pads, Bruce replied, "I was supposed to be in a casket.  They wouldn't fit." 

Arland Bruce III, if that is your real name, you are a douche.
