As a kid, I grew up with Junior endorsing Wheaties, Frosted Flakes, and a whole bunch of other whole grain cereals. Plagued by injury, the 13-time MLB All-Star’s career fizzled out, but somehow he pops up every now and again when ESPN is short on headlines.
adidas recently released their new “Made in March” jerseys. We will probably first see these uniforms worn at the Regional Tournaments, and then of course in the March Madness Tournament. To everyone’s delight, they left out the camo this year and went with a more modest approach.
If you’re a fan of college basketball, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Marcus Smart and his flopping. The Oklahoma State guard can’t seem to stay on his feet. The slightest breeze could knock this kid over. After flopping against the Kansas Jayhawks multiple times, some KU fans do what they do best and turned Marcus Smart into a hilarious meme. Take a look.
Monday night in Lawrence, Kansas… students, alums, and fans from everywhere celebrated as the Jayhawks clinched their tenth straight Big 12 Championship (or possible Co-Championship) under Bill Self (Aka The Don Of Basketball). It only seems right that we honor the Jayhawks and everything they have accomplished during this decade of kicking asses.
If Michael Jordan had an Instagram he would put most rappers these days to shame. From shoes, to rides, to trophies, MJ has everything needed to properly stunt on the haters. In honor of MJ turning 51 today, Complex imagined what the Instagram of his airiness would look like. Take a look.
If you can’t use this as motivation, then I don’t know what to tell you. Sam Bryant Jr. didn’t start going to the gym ’til he was 44, and well, now he’s 70 & still going strong.
So, I think this takes the whole “extreme” sports thing to another level. Kirill Oreshkin & friends seem to spend their free time climbing huge buildings and landmarks, hanging off of them by a thread with no gear or equipment, and then taking a picture. The cajones on this guy, I tell you what.
The Sochi Olympics officially start tomorrow, but the city is far from ready to host the games. Journalists are blowing up #SochiProblems on Twitter, documenting the terrible living conditions that they and the athletes will have to put up with throughout their stay. Most of the reports are pretty funny, but you still have to feel kind of bad for these guys.
You ever see a piece of art, and instantly know that you need it hanging in your living room? Well, looking at this is one of those moments for me. The bassist for the popular band, Death Cab For Cutie, celebrated the Seahawks victory by creating this picture of Marshawn Lynch made entirely from skittles. Amazing.
Surfing is a sport typically reserved for lucky residents who live near an ocean. Every one else is pretty much out of luck. Until now that is. The Wavegarden is a man-made surfing park located in Spain. The park uses patented technology that generates around 120 perfectly formed waves every hour. The artificial waves can offer rides that last around 20 seconds without losing power or shape. The creators of the Wavegarden are looking to expand their park and open up new location around the world. Hopefully they make their way to the U.S. soon.
