UFC 100: Brock Lesnar Vs. Frank Mir

BrockLesnar

Brock Lesnar will be going up in a rematch with Frank Mir on Saturday, July 11th, for the title fight of UFC 100. This is the most anticipated fight of the year, and I can’t wait to see who wins. I’ve been following Brock’s career since he joined the WWF, even though I don’t even like wrestling. The guy has always intrigued me, because of his size and overall physical stature. Once he joined the MMA, I got even more interested in it. frankmir

Frank Mir is a great opponent for Brock, because he is a more technical fighter who specializes in submission moves. He is very well versed in different take downs, and has the intellectual advantage in this match. He also beat Brock last year in Brock’s first UFC fight. Brock was murdering him before he got caught in a knee bar and had to tap out.
I want and I think Lesnar will win. He has the strength advantage and is a better fighter than when they fought last. Don’t count Mir out though, because this guy is a crafty fighter.  No matter who wins, the fight’ll be entertaining.

Christian Bale vs. Bill O’Reilly

Now that everyone has heard the Christian Bale freakout on the set of Terminator: Salvation, I wanted to share his altercation with Bill O’Reilly just hours after. Evidently he and O’Reilly have disliked each other for years, and this is just further proof of their hotheadedness (I’m making that a word).  Congrats to the guys who got this on tape….

G.I. Joe: The Movie, starring the Dallas Cowboys

After reading Ed Werder’s brilliant column about the Cowboy’s dysfunctionality, I figured Hollywood would be interested in making a movie out of it. Then, after hearing the terrible buzz surrounding the new G.I. Joe movie, I figured they could cast some high profile Cowboys into the film. Not only would this save the producers a lot of money, but it would also help the Cowboys act out some of their feelings in a constructive manner.  This is my personal opinion on who should play which character, but really it is all up to the casting director. Without further ado, bear witness to my shitty Photoshop skills…

Tony Romo as “General Hawk”, the fearless leader:

Jason Witten as “Duke”, the strong willed rebel:

Terrell Owens as “Snake Eyes”, the relentless antagonist:

…and featuring Ed Werder as “Heavy Duty”, the gun slinging reporter who uses anonymous sources to make a name for himself as an investigatory journalist, no matter how many friends you lose or people you leave dead and bloodied and dying along the way?

Welp, there are my casting ideas. If this is greenlit, I want 10% of the gross and T.O.’s autograph.

Scorpion Vs. Beetle

Just saw this video on a link from Deadspin, and wanted to post it. It is an epic battle inside a Japanese Dojo, where a Scorpion and Beetle fight to the death.

Sidney Crosby Gets Gordie Howe Hat Trick!

Sidney Crosby is officially the most vicious player in the NHL…not really, but he did get in a fight last night to the amusement of hockey fans everywhere. For those unfamiliar with the Gordie Howe Hat Trick, it is a goal, assist and a fight. This was Crosby’s first official NHL fight, and his opponent, Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference, left with a bloody head.

Above, Crosby planning his attack. Like a snow leopard seeking out it’s prey, Crosby plans his first move, knowing that this could mean sustenance for him and his cub for the cold winter months. (sorry, I’ve been watching a lot of Planet Earth on the Discovery Channel)

He strikes without warning, and his prey can do nothing but take each vicious punch after vicious punch, until he skates off the ice bewildered and covered head-to-toe in blood and fecal matter.

The fight was awesome. Crosby is awesome. Take that Gretsky.

Classic Sports Clip of the Week x 2

Take that Robin Ventura! As a former relief pitcher from age 8-10, I can empathize with Nolan Ryan. Whenever a kid would charge the mound with their helmet flopping in every direction after I gave them some sweet chin music, I would attempt the same thing. In Little League it was mostly slaps and crying, with the occasional “You make your weenies with your momma’s toe jam!” line thrown in to add insult to injury (scratches).

Randy Johnson got pooped on by a bird once when he was 7. Ever since then, he’s had an extreme hatred for the winged animal. This video shows not only his accuracy, but also his blind rage.
