    11 Biggest Badasses In The History Of The Rugby World Cup

    Originally, I thought I’d bring you a list of the greatest upsets in Rugby World Cup history for today. But as the group stage of the 2011 tournament draws to a close, the fact that the opening round matches have yielded precisely zero upsets thus far really took the wind out of those sails. Maybe […]

    Picture Of The Day: Only In Australia

    When playing a round of golf in America, some hazards you may come across are sand traps, water and maybe ever an alligator or two.  As for those who choose to do their golfing in Australia, they not only have the aforementioned hazards to worry about, but they also have to do their best to […]

    Apparently This Is An Amazing Cricket Catch (Video)

    I am not all that familiar with the game of cricket.  Therefore, I am not quite sure what would constitute “one of the most amazing catches you’ll ever see on a green field,” but apparently it involves making a barehanded overhead catch at the edge of the midwicket boundary and throwing the ball back into […]

    Picture Of The Day: Hanging On By An Underwear Thread

    I have both seen and heard of a shoe-string tackle before, but never have I witnessed an underwear-elastic tackle before in my life, until now. The player making the tackle can hang on all he wants, but it doesn’t appear as though an atomic wedgie is going to stop this Aussie rugby player from recording […]

    What Did I Do? (GIF)

    That is Barry Hall of the AFL’s Sydney Swans – now with the Western Bulldogs – delivering a knockout punch to the chin of West Coast Eagles defender Brent Staker a few years back.  While most would call this type of act a “cheapshot,” the Australian media prefers to refer to them simply as “brain […]

    Is This 70-Meter Basketball Shot The Highest Ever Made? (Video)

    Last month we showed you footage of some young males throwing a 120 yard hole-in-one on a golf course.  Originally I had figured it was nothing more than a bunch of guys with a new video camera and plenty of time on their hands simply trying to become the latest viral sensation on YouTube, but […]

    Japan Executes Lacrosse Hidden-Ball Trick To Perfection (Video)

    And here we have the hidden-ball trick; an oldie but a goodie in the game of lacrosse.  And surprisingly, it came in a game between Japan and Australia.  Who knew that these two countries even played lacrosse, let alone are capable of performing a move like this? I don’t know about you, but they definitely […]

    Germany Celebrates Hockey Gold…WTF?

    If you live in Australia, you may be thinking to yourself, “How the hell did those Germans end up winning the gold medal in hockey?”  And why would any Aussie think such a thing?  Because that is what Channel 9 in Australia is telling everyone in the land down under. Although this erroneous website publication […]

    Ric Flair’s Bare Ass Is Not A Sight For Sore Eyes

    The aging wonders, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, took to the ring in Australia as part of a wrestling tour the two have put together with several other former WWE stars.  And much to the surprise of those in attendance, a full moon was out in the land down under. In Devin Hester-like fashion, Flair […]

    Joe Muir Delivers An Overhand Right From Hell In 6 Second KO

    Total Pro Sports – It was not quite the fastest knockout we have seen, but it only took Joe Muir six seconds to deliver what may be the most devastating blow I have witnessed in MMA competition. Taking on Niki Havili in a superheavyweight bout at the Underground MMA Cage Fighting Series Event 1 in […]

    Total Pro Sports – Another tragedy has occurred at a sporting venue.  We have spoken before about the misfortunes of wasted beer.  Shane Victorino was the victim of such circumstances last week, and Angels fans are no strangers to these this type of behavior as well. Now football fans from “The Land Down Under” are […]

    Manly Mascot Lives Up To His Name

    Total Pro Sports – The Manly Sea Eagles of the National Rugby League proved just how manly they really are, and they didn’t even need the services of their players to do so.  Demonstrating their machismo for the club, which is based on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia, was none other than their mascot, […]
