Two days ago Shaq was goofing around during the NBA Halftime show, and he learned a powerful lesson. Even if you are 7’1″, you can still fall down like the rest of us if you slide on a freshly waxed floor. Although when someone of his stature crashes down, you scream timber and prepare for the mini-earthquake.
Ohio State University’s marching band is the The Best Damn Band in the Land and during this Saturday’s game against Penn State they performed some of the biggest scores from the movies. While most marching bands can do that, OSU brings them to life in a way only they can. They made Superman and Harry Potter fly and walked the dinosaur in formation. If that doesn’t make your school look like crap during their halftime shows, I don’t know what will. I know I am embarrassed by my school’s marching band and we are actually a Top 10 team this season.
BTW I wouldn’t mind if OSU played the halftime show at the Super Bowl because they are just that amazing!
The 49ers lost to the Seahawks, 29-3, and because of that SF’s QB Colin Kaepernick lost a bet to Seattle’s Russell Wilson. The cost of his loss was an eyebrow. But you have to wonder if it really happened because it is an ad for EA Sports Madden 25.
I guess only time will tell. And if it does, we will all get a good laugh looking at eyebrow-less face.
Mike Tyson was hanging out in the Fox Sports game room and he got to play Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out on Nintendo for the very first time. The game was such a knock out for him, that you can actually hear how excited he was playing it. It almost sounds and looks like that other time he plays with himself using his own personal joystick! Doesn’t it?
Shaq and Kevin Hart took a picture together and the comedian learned the down falls of posing him. Especially when you are 5’4″ and the person standing next to you is 7’7″. You look like a little kid with his dad. And the other negative is you are the perfect height for a job. Not that he would do that job to him, but he wouldn’t have to get on his knees and he can stand upright.
So there was a guy who went to see the NY Mets play the Kansas City Royals and he got thirsty. So the man, who wore a shirt that was too tight so he could show off his muscles, got a bottle of overpriced water to drink. Well when he tried to open it, he could not. So he took Howard Cosell’s advice, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” So he tried and he tried and he tried, and he just couldn’t do it. Even A-Rod was like, dude try some steroids. Too soon?
It is the saddest thing I have seen all week. Seriously this Mets fan, is hoping he is a Royals fans. Sorry KC, but I don’t want him associated with us.
So David decided to propose to his girlfriend, Jessica, at a New Britain Rock Cats baseball game last week. Jessica looked horrified by his question, so when the announcer asked her for the answer she said, “I’m sorry. I can’t. I’m sorry.” Then she ran off up in to the stands and he ran in to the dug out.
No word what happened if and when the two met up again. But you have to wonder if they were like, do you think they believed us? Many are questioning, including me, if that proposal was real. Do you think they played a fast ball on us or do you think he really struck out?
Growing up in NYC I always remember knowing who all of our baseball players were from The Yankees and The Mets every year. So Jimmy Fallon decided to test out that theory on Late Night yesterday when he had NY Met Matt Harvey interview NYers at Bryant Park. Watch what happens when he steps out out of his uniform and into some street clothes, and talks to some of his biggest fans! Granted in their defense it’s hard to recognize someone that you have only either seen in his uniform or naked, I mean clothes make the man but only if you know what he looks like in them.
BTW am I the only one who wants to round the bases with Matt Harvey after this bit?
Kobe Bryant was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday and the ABC host asked the basketball player about his future with the NBA because he only has a year left on his contract. The LA Laker had said in the past he couldn’t imagine retiring without another ring, so Kimmel wanted to know more. #24 answered him by saying “I have been very blessed to have been with a fantastic organization. I truly have. It’s coming to an end.” Then he added, “I’m happy it’s with a Lakers uniform.” So then Kimmel asked how soon and he said “It will be soon.” When the audience expressed their sadness over his decision, he explained that he has been playing for 20 years. Got to respect the 34 year old for wanting to go out on top, but I am sure many people don’t want him to go just yet.
I don’t know much about him (besides his love life), but I do he is a great player and the NBA will miss him! It will be interesting to see who will be the next playing legend after him now that Michael Jordan and Shaq have already retired and he will be joining them shortly on the permanent bench.
Sports is a serious business, but sometimes it can be really funny. Marv Albert was on The Late Show yesterday and he shared with David Letterman some of the best sports’ bloopers from last year! Sadly almost every sport was included but golf, so I guess that game is so boring they can’t even mess it up. Oh well maybe this year!
BTW where was something from the Olympics, I am sure they had a few good screw ups.
