    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?

    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.

    Picture Of The Day: Japan’s Odd Obsession…WTF?

    I don’t even know where to start here.  What is this picture supposed to mean?  Are the Japanese trying to tell us something?  Are Godzilla and King Kong going to get married in the new Yankee Stadium?  Are they going to tear the place apart?  Why are they making out?  What is with the fire […]

    NBCOlympics.com’s Curling Headline Racist?

    NBC has delivered some rather inappropriate scenes to its viewers before, but it may be fair to say that their Olympic coverage on NBCOlympics.com has gone a bit too far after headlines after the American women’s curling loss to Japan read, “Japan nips U.S. women in opener.” Had they been playing Canada, Great Britain, Germany, […]
