  • This Appliance Race at a Minor League Game Was a Debacle (Video)

    This Appliance Race at a Minor League Game Was a Debacle (Video)

    Minor league games aren’t known for their high production values. Tickets are roughly a nickel, and the little money the teams find generally has to fund the players. So there’s not a lot left when it comes to in-game entertainment. That will be obvious after you see this clip. At the home stadium of the […]

    Groundhog Dodges Formula 1 Pack in Canadian Grand Prix (Video)

    Wildlife are threatened enough by regular traffic without having to go looking for trouble, but this groundhog (gopher?) found its way onto the track at the Canadian Grand Prix, and managed to cross the track without incident. I’m sure it left a few drivers scratching their heads. Felipe Massa was situated in front of two […]

  • Ladies High Heels Race Ends With Epic Faceplant (Video)

    Ladies High Heels Race Ends With Epic Faceplant (Video)

    Many ladies walk around in high heels all the time.  Few of them actually run in them. That is why these high heels races are never really a good idea.  You just know that someone is bound to fall and hurt themselves.  But that didn’t stop these ladies from strapping on the stilettos and sprinting for […]

    Kevin Hart Races Adrian Peterson in 40-Yard Dash (Video)

    You’d think any time Kevin Hart races Adrian Peterson, the Vikings running back should win that battle by at least 10 yards.  But that’s not exactly the case. Hart and AP recently hooked up for a mini track meet in the middle of a street in Austin, Texas, and the result was a lot closer […]

    Olympics BMX Crash Wipes Out The Competition (Video)

    New Zealand BMX racer Marc Willers will probably never win an easier race in his life. During the opening quarterfinal run in the third heat of yesterday’s men’s cycling BMX race, Willers took a lead heading into the second-last turn of the race, and that small lead payed incredibly large dividends, as he was able […]

    In Australia They Run “The Amazing Beer Mile” (Video)

    In “The Land Down Under,” they hold an event called “The Amazing Beer Mile.”  The rules are rather straightforward.  Each competitor starts by chugging a bottle of beer at the starting line.  Once they have finished chugging the beer, they run one lap around the 400-meter track, chug another beer at the starting line, and […]

    The Monster Energy Supercross is coming to Toronto this weekend, and that means organizers of the event have been busy setting up for the festivities.  One of their main priorities is creating the dirt track that riders will be weaving their way through on Saturday.  In order to do this, they were required to import […]

    Prince Harry Beat Usain Bolt In A Race (Video)

    While in Jamaica representing the Queen during a diamond jubilee tour, Price Harry found the time to hit the track at the University of West Indies in Kingston and race “the world’s fastest man,” Usain Bolt.  And in a surprise upset, he would cross the finish line before the Jamaican world-class sprinter. So does this […]

    The Krispy Kreme Challenge Is A Marathon Fit For A Fat Man

    A five-mile run and a dozen glazed donuts might seem like quite the odd combination, but for 7,700 individuals at NC State, these two contradicting forces make for the perfect pair. It’s called the Krispy Kreme Challenge, and it began back in December 2004 when Greg Mulholland – a student at NC State at the […]

    Over the past couple of weeks we have seen several Tour de France riders suffer grueling crashes, only to get back up on their bikes and finish the stage with their faces and bodies bloodied and scared.  That must have inspired motocross racer Chad Reed, who was involved in a frightening crash of his own […]

    Cow Crossing Causes Cycling Pile Up (Video)

    Holding a cycling race on a street that passes through the grassy fields where cows graze may not seem like such a bad idea, but it turned out to be a catastrophic mess during the Critérium du Dauphiné cycling race in France this weekend. The race is said to be a tune-up for cyclists prior […]

    Sore Loser (GIF)

    Coming down the final stretch, the man in the red knew he didn’t have the legs to keep up with the guy in the white.  So he did what any sore loser would do; give your opponent a smack in the back of the head as he zips by you and heads towards the finish […]
