  • Greatest Moments from Between Two Ferns

    Galafanakis at his raw, unfiltered best. In most of the movies and SNL appearances you watch, Zach seems like a caged wild animal showing his teeth, but under the restraints of ‘the man’. BTF shows the side of Zach that lets him insult and poke at celebrities interview style, portraying himself as an ignorant dummy, but in reality showcasing his true brilliance. It’s all in good fun anyway.

  • LeBron James or Michael Jordan? Which Basketball Player Is the Greatest?

    The division between generations in America’s most popular court sport is becoming progressively more apparent; Michael Jordan last played in the NBA ten years ago, and a new generation of athletes now dominate the NBA’s landscape. While there are a few players like Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan who still carry the torch from yester era, it is clear that LeBron James now dominates the game. This is something that is undeniable, regardless of whether you view James as a heroic icon or an anathema. But, the purpose of this article is not to antagonize the already massive legions of LeBron haters and LeBron admirers. Instead, this article is meant to discuss one question: who is the better basketball player, LeBron or Jordan? There will be two aspects discussed: championships and athletic ability. Both of which will be assessed equally. Ultimately, the better player will be crowned. Hence, it will finally put an end to an elongated debate between the legions of basketball fans. First of all, the subject of championships needs to be assessed. Jordan won his first title with the Chicago Bulls in 1991—he was 28 years old during the first of many Windy City triumphs.

  • 10 Diseases You Can Get from Your Beloved Pet

    When people get a pet, a certain kind of nastiness usually comes with it. Yes, pets usually behave in disgusting ways and come with disgusting germs. That is right, their tongues usually go in strange places that humans would never dare put. Once a pet comes along, strange stains appear around the house, the furniture is destroyed, and footprints appear on the rug or wooden floors. Wherever there is a pet, destruction and germs come with it. There are no if, ands, or buts about it! The worst part about having a pet is the fact that you can get a disease from it. Yes, just like you can get a cold by kissing your wife or hugging your child, you can get a nice germ from your pet. Now, if you are a clean person, you should be OK from a deadly disease. That includes, keeping your environment clean, washing your hands, handling your pet correctly, and picking up after your pet. If you follow all of the sanitary rules with your pet, including vaccinations, you should be OK from any deadly disease; however, pets can still give diseases!

  • Carlos Gomez Makes 9th Inning, 2 out, Game Saving Grab

    Carlos Gomez made the game saving catch of the season last night. 2 outs, man on first, bottom of the 9th. Joey Votto has a 2-2 count worked against him and hits an absolute bomb straight back past center field. Votto even ripped a page out of Griffey’s technical swing book, dropping the bat as if he knew he’d just won the game for his team. Not if Carlos Gomez had anything to say about it, with more than enough time to get to the wall and time the descent of the ball, Gomez sprung up and snagged what would be a text book walk off home run. Votto started complaining about something, but there’s nothing to complain about here, folks. Francisco Rodriguez records his 303rd save, and Gomez who’s in a NL MVP race, also leading the MLB in WAR just earned himself another notch. Take you hat off, slow clap, kneel before your computer, and repeat these words; “We’re not worthy, we’re not worthy.” Your browser does not support iframes.

  • Lizzie Valesquez is Stronger Than You: Her Story of Courage & Determination

    You watch commercials of athletes swigging energy drinks. You hear superstars boasting, singing songs about starting from the bottom. It’s catchy and you jog to it. You read white handwritten quotes atop a sunset photo, silhouetted with people ‘having a good time’. Wise words, you share it on Instagram. Inspiration is a word used lightly this day in age. The internet at our fingertips, all you literally have to do is type the word into Google. Videos of fitness struggles/goals, montages of great monologues in movies and athletes overcoming adversity. Then you watch Lizzie Velasquez. A unique girl with an unnamed syndrome that affects three people in the world. Three people. Lizzie’s story is not for the faint of heart, not only living with a physical disorder, but living in today’s world of anonymous scrutiny and digital bullying, where the dagger digs much deeper behind the cowardice wall of a comment section. Lizzie is stronger than you. She is most definitely stronger than me. She’s probably 1 of the 3 strongest people in the world. Her determination and positivity through the struggle she’s undoubtedly endured her entire life is real inspiration. Her willingness to shield her vulnerability with goals and ambition should be your inspiration. more »

  • Recently Deceased Browns Fan Wants One Final Letdown Before Being Laid to Rest

    55-year old Scott E. Entsminger passed away on July 4, leaving a legacy more impressive than that of his beloved Cleveland Browns. After all, the Cleveland Browns have been one of the most downtrodden franchises in the history of the NFL. But as unfortunate as the Browns history has been since its inception, Entsminger showed great pride in being a Cleveland Browns fan. According to his obituary on the Columbus Dispatch, he was a season ticket holder and a lifelong Browns fan though lifelong may not be the correct term to use given his final wish. No, Entsminger made sure to extend his passion for the Browns beyond his own life. And he did so with an odd request for his funeral. To celebrate his life and to honor the legacy of the Browns, Entsminger requested six Cleveland Browns pallbearers for his funeral so that the Browns can let him down one final time. Whether you think this is trolling at its finest or simply an absurd way to celebrate, you have to admit Entsminger was a pretty clever guy. Here’s hoping that Entsminger ascension to the afterlife can conversely lift the Cleveland Browns to a winning 2013 season.

  • The Encyclopedia of Obnoxious Sports Fans

However, there are some sports patrons who take their fandom to extremist levels—detracting from the enjoyment of others. This will be an article that discusses the sporting world’s most annoying types of fans—not the teams or the cities with the most obnoxious fans. There’s always one occupant of the stands that drives the common spectator insane, and this article is meant to establish the most grating trends in sport spectating.

Nike who seems to be at the pinnacle of the innovation game, introduced FlyKnit technology, a upper shoe made entirely out of one thread, significantly lightening running shoes and also created the Free+ and Lunar sole, one for a minimal barefoot feel and one for stable cushioning.  Even traditionalist company, Asics, has evolved their GEL module and more »

  • ‘THE’, Meet Ћ. Your Replacement

    Australian restauranteur ,Paul Mathis, has invented a new symbol  with a goal to replace ”the” in everyday communications. Taken from the  cyrillic letter “Ћ” and pronounced “th,”, it’s simply an uppercase ‘T’ and lowercase ‘h’ fused together making typing more efficient for digital communication. “The word ‘and’ is only the fifth-most used word in English,” Mathis tells The Age, ‘and it has its own symbol, the ampersand (&)… isn’t it time we accorded the same respect to ‘the’?” The change would make digital communication more space and time efficient, perfect for those who need all 140 characters to get their inner most emotions out in the Twittisphere. So there ya go, now you have all the space you need for those extra exclaimation points. UPDATE: It’s 2023 and Ћ majority of Ћ english speaking population have forgotten how to spell ‘thuh’.
