    Tiger Woods Is Selling Heat Rub To The Japanese (Video)

    After losing dozens of endorsement deals following the unveiling of his extramarital sexual escapades over a year ago, Tiger Woods has taken the first step towards regaining his marketability, as he made his long awaited return to the studio to shoot an advertisement for Vantelin Kowa, a Japanese heat rub for athletes with aches and […]

    Picture Of The Day: How Japan Celebrate Baseball Victories

    I have never been a big fan of fireworks.  Just a bunch of over-priced sparkles flying into the air, making a bunch of noise, then disappearing while leaving behind an terrible odor.  Seems like a rather dumb way to celebrate a home run or a victory for any Major League Baseball team. Japanese baseball, on […]

    The Erotic Pitching Styles Of ’98 Koshien (Video)

    For those of you who always thought Hideo Nomo had the weirdest pitching windup in baseball history, you haven’t seen nothing yet.  Much like the pitchers from their country, Japan’s ’98 Koshien baseball video game has mastered the art of the crazy pitching windup, however, in true video game fashion they have taken things to […]

    Fan Gets Hit By Sebastien Buemi’s F1 Race Car (Video)

    Hurdling over stationary hurdles may be difficult and dangerous enough for some, but not for this daring Japanese boy, who decided it would be a good idea to try hurdling over Sebastien Buemi’s Formula 1 race car as it cruised down a track at approximately 20 mph during a Red Bull F1 Exhibition in Japan. […]

    Bo-Taoshi Is My New Favorite Sport (Video)

    The clip below will likely have you asking yourself two questions: What is Bo-Taoshi and why have I never seen this amazing sport before? In response to the first question, Bo-Taoshi is a game played between two teams of 75 individuals.  The role of the team on defense is to protect a giant pole that […]

    “Japanese Messi Boy” Is Amazing! (Video)

    I am not quite sure what is more impressive.  The kid in the video below, or the soundtrack that accompanies his compilation of incredible dekes and goals. Oh, who am I kidding.  The kid is obviously more impressive.  YouTube has labeled this kid as “Japanese Messi Boy,” and it is obvious why immediately after watching […]

    You’re Going The Wrong Way!…Marathon FAIL! (Video)

    You just finished running 25.99 miles and with the finish line only strides away, you find yourself with a shot at first place in a prestigious marathon.  The only thing that can keep you from achieving such a remarkable feat is dehydration, or perhaps a wrong turn. Couldn’t they have done a better job of […]

    Picture Of The Day: Where Did His Neck Go?

    Great work by the photographer.  He somehow managed to capture this image at the perfect moment. But what exactly is going on here?  From the looks of it, it appears as though the player with the base in his hands has just smacked his teammate so hard on the head that it literally knocked his […]

    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 […]

    Japan’s Odd Sport of Tandem Scootering (Video)

    The Japanese have a knack for being technologically advanced, but I don’t think tandem scooter racing is going to catch on in the United States any time in the near or distant future. Here are pictures from the Osu’s Rider Cup that takes place a few times every year on a go-kart-ish track.  Yes, your […]

    Japan Brings Golfing And Lions Together (Video)

    In North America we are used to seeing a Tiger out on the golf course, although he has been noticeably absent for the past little while due to the obvious.  In Japan, they always seem to do things different, in case you haven’t noticed.  And golf is no exception to this rule. Many people often […]
