This National Anthem Singer on Skates Can Hardly Be Blamed for His Massive Tumble

Oct 6, 2014 By Abraham 0

Before a recent hockey game, the National Anthem was performed by a Mark Donnelly, a singer known for his pre-game renditions of the song, which he performs while skating around the rink with a wireless mic.

On this particular occasion, his eyes were on the crowd rather than on the ice, where there happened to be a carpet spread out in front of him. Despite the embarrassment, he carried on as gamely as was possible.

Hopefully, he’s shaken it off by now so that the amusement we feel as we watch this is laughing with him, not at him…

By the third quarter in Sunday night’s game between the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots, the winner on the field had been all but decided. Nobody was paying attention to the game on the field, though, during a timeout in which the Patriots went above and beyond to pay tribute to Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still, whose 4-year-old daughter Leah is fighting cancer…

While he started the season on the practice squad, Still has since been promoted to the active roster. In an emotional show of support, the Patriots played a music video tribute to kids fighting cancer as Patriots cheerleaders traded their more traditional outfits…

Half of You Will HATE This Video. Everyone Else Thinks This Baby Is an Awesome Skater…

A skateboarding dad shares his passion with his 11-month-old son, helping the boy do some pretty sweet moves. Unfortunately, his lack of helmet is kind of scary and pretty much ruins the fun of the video for lots of people.

This Marathon Became an Obstacle Course Thanks to the Railroad’s Colossal Screw-up

Oct 3, 2014 By Joey White 0

During Saturday’s Mill Race Marathon in Columbus, Indiana, a nightmare unfolded for race organizers as a train intersected the race course, stopping runners in their tracks…

(Turn your volume down for the loud train horn)

After runners were forced to jump between train cars or run off pavement to go around the front, race organizers scrambled to explain the situation. In a Facebook comment, they explained that the railroad had agreed long before the race to keep the tracks clear but a railroad supervisor screwed up.

Fortunately, another Facebook commenter offered the perfect solution to the problem…

As punishment, all [railroad] and emergency management supervisors have to run next year’s marathon!!

Ohio State coach absolutely destroys a fan who ran onto the field

Sep 28, 2014 By Abraham 1

Everyone knows that if you jump out of the stands at a sporting event and run onto the field, you’re going to get tackled and hauled off. Usually the tackling is done by security, but in this case Ohio State’s strength and conditioning coach got to the trespasser first.

And he was not happy that someone was interrupting his playtime.

It will come as no surprise that you don’t want to confront a man whose only job is to make big, scary men better at knocking over other big, scary men…

The most expensive regular season baseball game ever is happening tomorrow

Sep 24, 2014 By Joey White 0

If you’re looking to watch the New York Yankees take on the Baltimore Orioles Thursday night, you’ll have to shell out a lot more money than the face value of the ticket you’re buying. A lot more.

The game will be Derek Jeter’s last regular season game in Yankee Stadium as the 20-year veteran retires at the end of this year and the Yankees are all but officially eliminated from the playoffs.

As a sign of the impact Jeter has had on the ball club and the respect he has among his fans, look at how much tickets for his final game are going for on the second market site StubHub

The cheapest ticket you’ll find at the moment is for $332, and you’ll be sitting in the bleachers with this obstructed view. Oh, and you’ll be with a bunch of strangers since this is a single ticket, not a pair…

High school rallies around student who lost his mom to cancer in emotional show of support

Sep 23, 2014 By Joey White 1

When 17-year-old Dandric Piolet returned home from school last Thursday, he discovered that his mother had lost her battle with cancer. The Garland High School senior posted a note to his friends on Instagram, saying,

“Just letting this all sink in right now. Coming home and finding the woman who breaks her back and struggles day to day to take care of me dead.”

The next day, Dandric insisted on attending school. While he craved a return to normalcy, life was anything but normal as he grieved the loss of his mother who raised five boys by herself.

Fortunately, Dandric was far from alone. A student tweeted this photo of the hall full of students surrounding him in support…

Garland High School

As the captain of his football team, Dandric wasn’t about to miss a big game that night in a sport his mother, Tasha, loved to watch. Fans of Garland’s opponent, Naaman Forest, even painted Dandric’s number 42 on their backs as a show of support.

This story from FOX 4 helps capture some of the emotion of that day, where an entire community wrapped their arms around a young man during his darkest moment…

Entire kids football team adorably leveled by a banner. The cheerleader’s response is hilarious…

Sep 23, 2014 By Abraham 0

After their first home win this season, this team of 6- and 7-year-olds were going to celebrate by charging through a banner like they see the big kids do at high school games. Like most breakaway banners intended for this tradition, their banner was made of vinyl in two parts, connected by velcro.

It turns out they weren’t quite heavy enough to split that velcro seam, however. But that’s not even the funniest part. Check out the little cheerleader’s wonderfully incongruous reaction to the debacle…
