Thursday night during the Houston Astros-San Diego Padres game at Minute Maid Park, a boy caught a foul ball, using his tub of popcorn.

Check out this dude's creative foul ball snag:

Sorry for little content lately... had some things going on that kept me away from blogging, but we should be good to go now. Well, until one of these wildfires here in Colorado burns down Thigh headquarters. It's pretty rough out here right now to say the least, and please pray for the firefighters and all of those affected by the fires.

But on a lighter note, check out this TNL fail compilation video for June 2012:

According to Deadline.Com, a pair of writers have been hired by Universal Pictures to write the script for a fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series, and Steven Spielberg is set to be one of the film's producers:

While Universal Pictures has been trying all summer to generate new franchises, the studio is getting moving with the fourth installment of its biggest one, Jurassic Park. Universal is setting Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver to write the script for the fourth film, which will be produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy.
The original Jurassic Park was of course freaking awesome, but the sequels were disappointments (Jurassic Park 3 in particular was a crapfest).

Deadline adds, "Universal is rereleasing the original film in 3D on July 19, 2013." That movie could definitely be a lot of fun to watch in 3D,

Highly recommended to watch this badass short film from Globe, 'Electric Blue Heaven', in full screen and HD:


Here's more on the video from its Vimeo page:

Introducing Globe's ELECTRIC BLUE HEAVEN, a short, conceptual film featuring Dion Agius in the WORLD'S BEST WAVE POOL!

A few weeks back, Dion Agius and crew embarked on a journey to the Middle East. A journey for waves. A journey that would bring Dion to unleash on the world's best man made wave. A studio for surfing. Smack in the middle of a desert mountain range in a foreign land.

There was a concept. A concept involving 10 Russian models, a Lamborghini, and Dion boosting virtually every air in the book, plus a couple new ones. Electric blue water contrasting against wild mountainous backdrops.

A story was captured. Captured through the lenses of Joe G, DJ Struntz, Beren Hall, and Grady Archbold. Motion & Still. Film & HD. The story will be told through the pages of our global media partners and through this short film directed by Joe G.

For the full story check out the latest issue of SURFING MAG (USA), STAB (AUS), DESILLUSION (EU), SURFIN' LIFE (JAP), LA FLUIR (BRA), 7 MARES (CENTRAL AMERICA), and CARVE (UK).

The Tampa Bay Rays' franchise was established in 1998 (they were of course the "Devil Rays" from '98-2007). But, they understandably would like to be able to show off a variety of "throwback" uniforms like most of the teams can.

So, they just decided to make up these uniforms that are supposed to be from 1979, and will wear them in a game next weekend:

Not bad. I definitely like the hats.

In April, we shared the awesome news that a sequel to Dumb and Dumber (my favorite movie) was in the works. And it may still be in the works... but without Jim Carrey:

According to sources, Carrey grew increasingly frustrated by New Line and Warner Brothers, who he felt showed a lack of enthusiasm regarding the project.

A sentiment seemingly reinforced by a statement exclusively obtained when ETOnline reached out to the actor's publicist for comment. In addition to confirming the story, Carrey exclusively tells ETOnline, "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title."

Source: ET Online

It sure sounds like Carrey could still be convinced to do the movie if New Line and Warner Brothers could show that they give a damn about it. Get it together, asshats.

Also, Dumb and Dumber To would indeed be a great title.

Yes, I'm very biased because I'm a diehard fan of the team, but I don't think there's a better lineup introduction in sports than the one the Chicago Bulls put on. Nothing pumps me up more.

And as awesome as it is now, it was even better during the Bulls' dynasty years, with Ray Clay as the PA announcer.

I've always said that it would freaking awesome to hire Clay to do his lineup intros at an event such as a wedding, and somebody else apparently felt the same way.

Watch Clay do intros at a wedding reception, right here in Colorado (in the beautiful town of Estes Park):


Great stuff. Heavy drinking and crazy times surely followed at that reception.

As I'd hope you know by now, the San Francisco Giants' Matt Cain threw a perfect game against the Houston Astros on Wednesday night at AT&T Park.

Cain becomes just the 22nd pitcher in MLB history to toss a perfecto, and it's the first one thrown in Giants history. So... it's kind of a big deal.

And he owes a huge, huge thanks to Giants' right fielder Gregor Blanco, who played the role of Dewayne Wise, by making an absolutely INCREDIBLE catch to preserve the perfect game:


Cain just got a five-year, $112.5 million contract extension in April, so if I'm Blanco, I'm definitely keeping that in mind right now. He should at least be getting free dinners for a while.

Just when we thought fast food news could not get any more exciting, Burger King announced that it will be offering a bacon sundae throughout the U.S. this summer.

The dessert — a 510 calorie monstrosity featuring both a whole strip of bacon and bacon crumbles atop a fudge and caramel sundae — was released in April in Nashville to reasonable fanfare, but will now receive a wide release as part of Burger King’s expanded summer menu.

Burger King first saw success for its bacon sundae earlier this year when it “took Nashville, TN by storm,” according to a company press release. The cold treat — which boasts 8 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar — is described in the release as a “sweet and savory dessert [featuring] rich and creamy vanilla soft serve, drizzled with chocolate fudge, caramel and topped with bacon crumbles, complete with a thick-cut, hardwood smoked bacon garnish.”

I like bacon and a caramel/fudge sundae as much as the next guy but I don't know what to make of this. I mean, the fact that it's actually being sold at one of the biggest fast food chains in the world is is quite hilariously awesome. No doubt about that whatsoever. But I'm just not sure about how well bacon could taste on top of an ice cream sundae. I guess there's only one way to find out.

Have you given this bad boy a try or have any sort of opinion about it? Let us know in the comments.

Bikini pictures of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews surfaced on Tuesday, and after seeing the pictures, TMZ said her boobs may be "too good to be true".

TMZ even put up a poll question which asked their readers, "Erin's boobs... Real or Fake?" At the moment (after 100,000+ votes), 55% of their readers say the boobs are fake.

Just what this woman needs, right? First she gets some creepy asshole videotaping her through a peephole while she's naked in a hotel room, and then the one time we see bikini pictures of her, the first response is whether or not she has breast implants.

But, anyway, here's some of the pictures that sparked the debate:

After the match, the 25-year-old Sharapova said, "It's a long journey. It started from a very young age and it's not over yet. I'm not sitting here and saying I'm done because I'm far from it. I have a lot more in me to achieve."

Here's some info about this glazed donut flavored vodka from MSN:

Starting July 1, vodka lovers can get their hands on the tipple that boasts capturing the "irresistible taste of America's most-popular donut." And as if the thought of glazed donut anything weren't enough to whip us into an excited frenzy, those clever marketing people have also appealed to our health conscious side, pointing out that the average glazed donut has 250 calories, while a serving of donut vodka has a mere 80.

This sounds too good to be true for us heavy drinkers and donut lovers.

The adiZero Crazy Light 2 from Adidas hit stores on May 24th, 2012, and they come in a variety of colorways, with the "main" colorway being the one you see in the picture above.

The shoe is indeed crazy light. I've been a basketball shoe nut going back to my early child years. I've had my hands on a lot of basketball shoes, especially light ones, as I preferred to get them that way as a point guard. And I don't remember holding a shoe as light as the Crazy Light 2's, which weigh just 9.5 ounces.

Maria Sharapova defeated/dominated Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-3 in the French Open semifinals on Thursday to advance on to the French Open final, where she'll face 21st-seeded Sara Errani on Saturday.

With this victory, Maria is now ranked #1 in women's tennis, for the first time since June 2008. Maria was cruising along in those days before getting shoulder surgery, but it appears she's finally back to kickass form.

Here's what Maria had to say about reclaiming the #1 world ranking:

"It's pretty special," Sharapova said. "A few years ago after my shoulder surgery, I don't know if I had a ranking, but it was over 100. And I thought 'Well, I did it one time. So maybe again, I can try to do it.' "

If Maria wins on Saturday, she will have completed a career Grand Slam (she won Wimbledon in 2004, the U.S. Open in 2006, and the Australian Open in 2008).

His name is Jamie Moyer, and he will start for the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate (Norfolk Tides) on Saturday:

Thigh Five: @masnRoch

Moyer, 49 (!!!!!), was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week after putting together a 2-5 record, 5.70 ERA, and 1.733 WHIP in 10 starts over 53 2/3 innings pitched. The left-hander pitched for the Orioles from 1993-1995, with the most notable of those seasons being in 1993 when he had a 12-9 record and 3.43 ERA over 25 starts.

It's impossible to not admire the hell out of this guy.

Finally, a physics-driven engine in 'Madden' that is known as the "Infinity Engine", and proof of it debuted at E3 today. Here's a quick explanation of it from EA Sports:

With Physics You Can Feel, Madden NFL 13 delivers Next Generation gameplay today. Powered by the all-new Infinity Engine, true player impact and authentic momentum transfer ensure that no two plays ever look or feel the same.

And the video for it shown at E3:


Madden greatly needed an overhaul to the engine like this. The gameplay was feeling the same for about a decade straight.

Now, obviously EA Sports is going to make the trailer so it appears as the Infinity Engine is the greatest addition in video game history, but we'll have wait and see how it actually plays.

Still, from what you can see in the video, and what they're saying, this is all very promising stuff.

I reluctantly watched about 15 minutes of the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, thanks to my girlfriend changing the channel to it during the Celtics-Heat commercial breaks. But, while 13 and a half of those minutes made me want to kick things, the other minute and a half was pretty awesome, as this footage from The Dark Knight Rises premiered:



UPDATE: I had a video up from YouTube last night that was taken down by Warner Bros, but finally found a replacement with the video you see above, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter.

The description on the YouTube page of the video (which is for some reason just now making the rounds on the interwebs) you're about to see:

The young Mike Tyson, before his professional boxing days (while still an amateur) shadowboxing. This clip is not sped up. It just goes to show how fast and dangerous Mike Tyson really was!

And the video:


Insane. And, yes, the other guy in the ring is Teddy Atlas.

With the knowledge that Atlas is training Tyson, we can guess this video was filmed in the very early 80s, when Tyson was 14 or 15 (he was born on June 30, 1966). From Tyson's Wikipedia page:

He was repeatedly caught committing petty crimes and fighting those who ridiculed his high-pitched voice and lisp. By the age of 13, he had been arrested 38 times. He ended up at the Tryon School for Boys in Johnstown, New York. It was at the school that Tyson's emerging boxing ability was discovered by Bobby Stewart, a juvenile detention center counselor and former boxer. Stewart considered Tyson to be an outstanding fighter and trained him for a few months before introducing him to Cus D'Amato.

Tyson was later removed from the reform school by Cus D'Amato. Kevin Rooney also trained Tyson, and he was occasionally assisted by Teddy Atlas, although he was dismissed by D'Amato when Tyson was 15. Rooney eventually took over all training duties for the young fighter.

At that age, Tyson competed as an amateur in the Junior Olympic Games (and won the gold medal twice). He made his professional debut in 1985, at the age of 18.
