With Derek Jeter getting ready to play his last home game ever later this month, Gatorade decided it was the perfect time to release this gem of a commercial. The ad follows Jeter as he walks around NYC interacting with his fans and just being the all-around badass that he is. The Frank Sinatra soundtrack doesn’t hurt either. Check it out above.
Christopher Chann put together this video of him doing skateboarding tricks, and then put it in slow-motion to give you a closer look at how the tricks are performed. Videos like this make me wish I would have tried a little harder when I was younger. So dope.
I know they’re just base-jumping, but this seems like something you would see in a movie. To help get their parachute gear past security, this extreme sports teamed dressed up as priests so they could base jump off the tallest building in Poland. Amazing.
Bleacher Report and Adrien Noterdaem, an artist who is known for his ability to recreate the distinct Simpsons’ style, came together to create this celebration of both the show’s 25th season, and the start of the NFL season. View the full feature here.
LeSean McCoy was recently out for lunch enjoying “America’s Craaaaaziest Burgers” with 3 friends, when he decided to stiff a waiter by leaving just a 20 cent tip on a 61 dollar tab.

This honestly looked fake for the beginning of the video, but it’s on Guinness’ actual YouTube channel. Dude has some serious skills being able to even hit the ball with that club. Unreal.

Pretty excellent prank by Jeremy Lin we have here. He recently traveled to San Francisco to act like a wax statue at Madame Tussauds.
As if athletes lives weren’t luxurious enough, Nike and the design team at Teague have created this ultimate private jet concept for basketball teams. These are just computer-generated mock-ups, but they look like they’re straight from the future. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this sometime in the very near future.
Real or fake? You tell me.
I watched this highlight about 138 times yesterday, and at first I was like “he was just trying to jump over him, and misjudged it.” Although, it now seems like he knew exactly what he was doing, and just wanted to see if karate kicks were legal in the NFL. You be the judge after you watch this GIF about 100 times.
These are some incredibly creative ways to tee off on the golf course. The Bryan Bros use some GoPros to capture their golf trick shots. Surprisingly, they seem to be fairly accurate.
With the FIBA World Cup in full swing audiences get a glimpse at returning and growing stars in the NBA, and from around the world. Another thing that is pretty sweet about these international matches is that you get a taste of the foreign basketball flavor… Like war dances, and whatnot.
