Jimmy V’s ‘Never Give Up’ Speech Taking You Into The Weekend

Gets me every time.

The ESPY’s were this week, so it seems appropriate to revisit one of the greatest moments from that or any award show in history. A+++++ speech that has it all. Gets me every time.

Take his words to heart and have a weekend.

The Phillies Are Willing To Try Anything But Winning To Get People Back At Games

Anything to distract the fans from the usual "Fuck Me In The Ass I Just Paid Over $200 Total To Watch This Shit Ballclub Attempt To Play Baseball" night.

Country music night. Star Wars night. German heritage night. Anything to distract the fans from the usual “Fuck Me In The Ass I Just Paid Over $200 Total Taking The Family To Watch This Shit Team Attempt To Play Baseball” night.

I don’t blame the fans for not going to the games. I’m as die-hard as it gets and will tune in on TV or the radio every night, but they are seriously torcher to watch. Especially live. The fat kid rocking cargo shorts and a Babylon-5 t-shirt everyday during high school has a better chance of scoring on a regular basis. Because screw actually addressing the problems from the top to bottom when you can try to distract the fanbase with cheap, novelty nights and giveaways. I suppose if they’re going to play like a bunch of minor leaguers then the organization is going to act like a minor league team.

I hate this team.

The MLU (Ultimate Frisbee) Championship Game Comes To Philly Again Tomorrow And It’s Sure to be a Classic

FRISBEE! CHESTER! FUN!
mlu

PPL Park is becoming the hot-spot for great ESPN 8 “The Ocho” matchups. It’s home to the Philadelphia Union and has hosted Lacrosse championships, Rugby championships, and now Ultimate Frisbee championships. I’m sure all the lovely residents of Chester are just giddy with anticipation for tomorrow’s game between the D.C. Currents and the Vancouver Nighthawks. Now I hate tossing around the frisbee just as much as the next guy, but when you have a US vs. Canada matchup right in your backyard, there’s no excuse to not be fired up. Plus the occasional Ultimate plays that infiltrate SportsCenter are pretty damn impressive so I can learn to like the sport. The parking lots open up for tailgating at 2 pm and the game starts at 6:30. So if you’re in the area and don’t mind running the risk of stumbling in to the wrong part of Chester, go do your part to make sure those denim jacket canucks don’t run off with our trophy.

Lindsay Lohan Looking Fresh! And By That I Mean She Looks 28 Going On 60

Lindsay Lohan's life and body is that of a Greek tragedy.

Oh how far the mighty have fallen. Sure, she’s been up and (mostly) down for the better part of a decade. But it’s getting to the point to where Lindsay Lohan’s life and body is that of a Greek tragedy. A fall from grace not seen since Oedipus Rex, minus the motherfucking. Not long ago she was the tits of the Tinseltown. Now she looks like a mother of 3 who is forced to hide the C-Section scars before hitting up the Wildwood nightlife. Put down the drag and pick up your life, Lindsay. Those Death Pool odds aren’t getting tastier by the month.

NEVER FORGET:

For Some Reason I Think Kacie McDonnell May Regret This Segment On Good Day Philadelphia

Dig in, sweetie!

You know, when Kacie’s 3 kids* deep and anchoring Good Morning America. Might not be a good look when a production assistant whips out the clip when she went down like a champ and came out smiling with a face full of white liquid. Going ball to ball may not fly at the national ranks. Till then – Dig in, sweetie!

*Our kids, of course. Only a matter of time before that pretty boy gets kicked to the curb.

The Rare Rope Swing Disaster Where Blood Makes An Appearance

No blood no fail.

YouTube – My sisters attempt at the ole rope swing in key west florida. Her foot got caught in the loop and slammed hard into the rocks. She Split her head open and got pretty banged up but she walked away from it with no broken bones or serious injuries.

Usually rope swing fails involve chicks underkicking the coverage or White Whales starting Tsunamis. It’s very rare to see chum end up in the water. Well done, Miss Potentially Phenominal Body but it’s too blurry to tell. Rub some dirt on it and try again.

Love how the dog shows more concern for the girl fracturing her skull than her Bandito brother. Can’t be concerned with anything but protecting the face from the sun and robbing the next train.

Aussie Company “Wicked Campers” In Hot Water For Being Just A Tad Sexist And Racist

I thought this was Australia.

HUFFPO – An Australian camping company’s offensive advertising slogans have sparked Internet outrage — and rightfully so. Brisbane-based camper van rental company Wicked Campervans has come under fire for the reprehensible slogans painted on their minivans.The ill-advised slogans range from sexist and misogynistic to racist and homophobic. The company has previously received complaints about vans sporting the slogans “Save a whale, harpoon a Jap” and “Fat girls are harder to kidnap.” Other gems include “To all virgins: Thanks for nothing,” and “I wouldn’t trust anything that bleeds for five days and doesn’t die.”

They don’t have freedom Down Under? I thought this was Australia. Now, I wouldn’t ride in one of these vehicles, sans maybe the Horny Sandwich mobile because it makes an extremely valid point. Actually, there’s no way in hell I’d be caught anything but dead in an actual camper. I lack the uncontrollable sex drive and mustache growing abilities required to operate a windowless van. But for whatever reason there’s a market for Aussies who would like to go camping, get stoned or rent a rape mobile that informs the masses to “Save a whale, Harpoon a Jap”. To each their own. The people against it are only fueling the fire. Wicked Campers only has 50 Facebook Likes on it’s page but has garnered hundreds of thousands of signatures on a petition against the company. Don Draper himself would be in awe of this advertising play.
