I have enough trouble going downhill on a bike. Who needs the anxiety of tipping over sideways at 40 mph?
This is probably proof that football does cause concussions that lead to brain damage:
Because it works again:
It is in the arsenal of every Pee Wee football team. When it works in high school, as in the first clip, that’s a sign the kids took too many hits to the head.
A bicycle scarf that turns into an airbag, bought to you by the country that brought us the Volvo. How cool is that?
I don’t know how it works, but I did have an accident earlier this year that would have set it off if I had one.
Apparently, the home team is pulling down cash like it’s an NBA franchise:
A quick observation on the Brooklyn sports scene.
If you want to see a Brooklyn Nets game at the Barclay’s Center, a ticket in the cheapest seat costs $90.
If you want to see a Washington Wizards game at the Verizon Center in D.C., a ticket will cost you under $20.
When the Brooklyn Nets play the Washington Wizards, where do you think I’m going to see them?
The kid in this soccer video is 7 years old.
His name is Takuhiro Nakai, and his nickname is “Pipi.” He’s in Japan, but now that he’s reached the ripe old age of 9, he’s been signed to a contract with global football powerhouse Real Madrid.
Though you’d think his coach would tell him to pass the ball once in a while. He’s got the entire opposing team surrounding him. One of his teammates must be open.
Here’s his last appearance on the mound in New York on Sept. 26 (If this video link works correctly, there are multiple clips here):
Pretty cool letting Andy Pettitte and Derek Jeter take the ball from him. Pretty sad that Pettitte is retiring from the game as well. His last pitch was thrown Saturday in Texas. And really, Jeter doesn’t have that much longer to play.
One other note of historic significance: Rivera will be the last player in Major League Baseball to wear the number 42. That number has been retired in honor of Jackie Robinson, whose family was in Yankee Stadium for a tribute to Mariano.
This is one of those instances when you think, “Why wait. Just put him in the Hall of Fame now.”
Another look back at the 2013 NCAA basketball final. I still have confetti I collected at the end of the game in the Georgia Dome. Can’t wait for next season, but there are high hopes for the football team this year, already off to a 4-0 start. (Unfortunately, didn’t get any confetti at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans last January.)
