Good morning guys and gals. It’s that time again. You and I must take our weekly excursions back at least six days into the not so distance past to see what was what and who was who.
Everyone have their toothbrushes?
First we travel to the land of the ice and snow, of the midnight sun and where the hot springs blow, where the Hammer of the Gods is not just folklore but rather a man…ney…a Mountain. If fact, that’s what they call him, The Mountain. That acclaim derives from his role in the HBO series Game of Thrones, but Mountain is otherwise known as Hafthor Bjornsson; and don’t you dare forget that second “S.” Frankly the way Hafthor tosses the atlas boulders around in the video below and then “walks” with a VW Bug strapped to his shoulders…WATCH THE VIDEO…IT’S WORTH IT. He was also just crowned Europes Strongest Man. With that in consdieration, I’d first ask what he prefer to be called and try to avoid eye contact. All hail, The Mountain.
Now for Baseball.
Remember the movie Angels in the Outfield? This vine just might be evidence they are making a sequel. I believe they can fly!!!!
Now everybody clap yo hands!
Nice slide, Bautista. Very good. Tip top. 4 out of 5 stars. Round of applause.
Now, I understand baseball games can take up a whole afternoon. I also understand a guy might get a bit peckish during a game, but Chicago Cub 1b, Anthony Rizzo, is committing blatant thievery during the games at Wrigley Field.
Right in front of the Umpire, cameras, and the Baseball Gods. Next time, Rizzo, pack a Lunchable.
On to football.
Training camps have opened and roster spots are up for grabs. Looks like the New York Jets are leaving nothing to chance and letting anyone try out for Quarterback this year.
The Jets are so bad at QB they had to bring in the Play 60 kid… pic.twitter.com/w0CMNvMC6D— NFL Memes (@NFL_Memes) August 3, 2015
He might be a touch undersized, but there’s always any given Sunday. Wait. We’re talking about the Jets. Nevermind. RUN, KID!!! RUN!!!
Now for that other kind of football.
The English Premier League kicked off this morning. The Matches are underway and the soccer songs are bellowing out of soccer stadiums across England. So in honor of the new season, I found a vine of some of the sickest ankle-breakers courtesy of Chelsea Midfielder Eden Hazard. Enjoy.
And with that rolling above, I’m going to jump into the leagues on Draftkings and get my EPL on.
Till next time, Boom Shaka Laka and all that Jazz.
