    Squaw Valley Has The World’s First “Ski-Thru” Starbucks (Video)

    Have you ever found yourself skiing or snowboarding down the hills when suddenly you get an irresistible urge for a coffee?  At most ski resorts, that would mean having to take off your skies, place them somewhere with your poles, and walk a good distance in those annoying boots until you find the first place […]

    Surfer Nearly Swallowed By A Humpback Whale (Video)

    Blue whales are not the only aquatic mammals interrupting kayakers and surfers these days.  Now it appears as though humpback whales are doing the same off the coast of Santa Cruz, California.

    Kayaker’s Journey Interrupted By A Blue Whale (Video)

    While a shark is probably the scariest creature you can come across while venturing through the waters off the coast of  California’s Redondo Beach, I assume a 150-ton Blue Whale is probably a close second.  Oddly enough, the sight of the giant mammal surface lunge-feeding only a few feet away was not enough to scare […]

    Check Out This Incredible 90-Foot Buzzer-Beater (Video)

    Perhaps the only thing more incredible than this basket is the cheesiness of the accompanying graphics and effects.  Black & Yellow?  Are you kidding me?  I figured that song would have died along with the Penguins’ Stanley Cup hopes and the Steelers’ Super Bowl run. As for the shot, it was just about as remarkable […]

    BASE Jumper Eludes Cops, Jumps Off Bixby Bridge (Video)

    This BASE jumper doesn’t run from cops.  He flies from them!
