February 2012 | Sharapova's Thigh


Quarterback Robert Griffin III, the latest Heisman winner and likely #2 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, will be on the cover of EA Sports' 'NCAA 13' video game. Joining the Baylor product on the video game's cover will be a Heisman winner of the past, and starting March 12, fans will get the chance to vote on Facebook for who that former Heisman winner is.

Here are the choices for what former Heisman winner will join RG3 on the cover, according to Pasta Padre:

Barry Sanders, Desmond Howard, Marcus Allen, Doug Flutie, Eddie George, Herschel Walker, Charlie Ward, and Andre Ware.

So after seeing that list, I think a very good guess would be that the the 'NCAA 13' cover will feature RG3 and Barry Sanders.

February 2012 FAIL compilation

Nine minutes of February 2012's best of the worst:

Hey nice trick shot bro. Granted it was about 35 feet short of the hoop, just six feet off the ground, and drilled some girl in the face, but other than it was great. Best of all, you didn't even apologize to the her. You're truly a Larry Bird meets Romeo.

But back to the girl, how about how unfazed she was by that? Rub some dirt on it and keep strolling through the gym like a champ. Of course I would've rather seen her grab the ball and chuck it right back in the trick shot dipshit's face, but I'm still very impressed by how she handled it.

Last month I showed you guys a gameplay video (Angels/Rangers) of 'MLB 12: The Show', and with the game set to drop on March 6, more gameplay videos are hitting the interwebs.

Check out these gameplay videos of Cubs vs. Cardinals and Yankees vs. Tigers:








Incredible. You'd honestly think you're watching a real game at times. I'll be stunned if this game isn't getting 'A' reviews as the series usually does.

I honestly don't know if I've ever seen an ankle-breaking crossover at the D-I level in women's college basketball. But busting the ankles of two defenders on not just a traditional crossover dribble, but one of the behind-the-back variety? Yeah I've certainly never seen that at the D-I level, or in basketball at any level for that matter. That goes for men's or women's.

So I think it's safe to say that it's bullshit if homegirl here (who is just a freshman) has to keep playing basketball for D-II Merrimack College in Massachusetts. Let's get that transfer process going and get her UConn Huskies jersey ready right now.

Well this cruise ship pool table just blew my mind

Posted by Matt Clapp | 2/11/2012 10:34:00 PM | , ,


Why weren't the balls rolling? Why is the table rising?

These questions are answered in the YouTube description of the video:

This is a video taken by a friend, of the Gyroscopic self leveling pool table on the cruise ship "Radiance of the Seas", while travelling back from New Zealand in rough weather in December 2011

As the ship moves the pool table adjusts so that the billiard balls don't move at all, even in rough weather. If you look closely you can see that the balls remain still as the table moves, enabling you to play in almost any conditions..
Crazy.

$100,000. Yes, that is the Ebay "Buy It Now" option and people will frequently set the price high just because (and to potentially make the interested bidders feel they have to bid a lot of money), but that's quite a laughable price. At least you get free expedited shipping!

As of right now, there's already 30 bids, and the auction closes in six days. With Linsanity out of control, and with many insane people out there, I wouldn't be completely shocked if someone with too much money on their hands came close to that "Buy It Now" price.

HD video of 1957 Disneyland? How in the hell?

Let the Disney History Institute explain:

We cleaned the film, transferred it with a Spirit DataCine, and edited a few clips to music. But all of the images here are from 1957, before the park was even two years old.

So there you go. And here's the video:

As I said earlier today, I lived in the Los Angeles area for five years as a kid. Our family would visit Disneyland multiple times per year in that time, and I've been there (as well as Disney World in Orlando) many more times since then (most recently the day after Christmas '09). And every time, the visit to the park feels as magical as always. If you've never been to one of the parks, I urge you to do everything possible to plan a vacation for one of them in the near future, especially if you have kids. They will have the time of their lives. Guaranteed.

Anyway, as somebody that is very familiar with Disneyland and absolutely love it, I found that video to be nothing short of AWESOME. I was pretty shocked with how similar much of the park's attractions looked in comparison to their present day appearance.

And just seeing anything from over 50 years ago in such video clarity is amazing in itself, but it's even more badass when it takes you around Disneyland in just the park's second year of existence.

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin is the talk of the NBA right now after putting up three straight 23+ point, seven+ assist performances, and mixing in plenty of terrific highlights in those games.

Watch Lin tear it up in a Harvard Flag Football Championship Game:


I would love to hear Bill Walton's commentary on Jeremy Lin. I think it would go something like this:

Doing this will now get you fined $1,000 in Los Angeles County. Seriously.


The Board of Supervisors this week agreed to raise fines to up to $1,000 for anyone who throws a football or a Frisbee on any beach in Los Angeles County.

In passing the 37-page ordinance on Tuesday, officials sought to outline responsibilities for law enforcement and other public agencies while also providing clarification on beach-goer activities that could potentially disrupt or even injure the public.

The updated rules now prohibit “any person to cast, toss, throw, kick or roll” any object other than a beach ball or volleyball “upon or over any beach” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Exceptions allow for ball-throwing in predesignated areas, when a person obtains a permit, or playing water polo “in or over the Pacific Ocean”.

However, during the winter off-season, the new rules will be relaxed.

Officials warned that any activities that could potentially harm “any person or property on or near the beach” should not be allowed during the peak summer season.

I actually lived in a LA County beach town, Manhattan Beach (it's amazing there by the way), for five years as a kid. My parents currently live in another California beach town, Carlsbad (it's also amazing there), located just north of San Diego. So I've spent much time at the beach. And let me say that this $1,000 fine business for throwing a football or frisbee around is one of the most horseshit things I've ever heard of. Just utterly ridiculous.

If you're going to go to the beach, you need to realize these things are going to be happening around you: football, frisbee, volleyball, soccer, baseball throwing, etc, etc. That's just how it is. If you can't handle it, then stay the hell off the beach.

But instead a bunch of ignorant assholes complained about these usually harmless activities, the LA Board of Supervisors got sick of hearing the complaints, and then decided to implement this $1,000 fine nonsense.

You can't have fun anymore, kids.

First off, let me say that the person that put together this video compilation should probably reconsider their weekend viewing options. I mean, the only time I ever see bowling listed on TV is during the early NFL games on Sundays. And if that's indeed the only time... really? Bowling over NFL? I don't care if you're not much of a football fan, or even if you're Roy Munson Jr., there's absolutely zero excuse for choosing bowling on television over professional football, or any level of football for that matter.

Anyway, as for the video, the "Take that you bottle bitch!" outburst takes the cake, and I'm not sure it can ever be topped.
