Creepy footage of ‘ghost’ at Bolivian soccer game

- April 23rd, 2014

We’ve heard that Bolivian soccer is good, but not scary good.

A few opinions may have changed on that front after creepy footage from a soccer game between Bolivian club The Strongest and Defensor Sporting went viral Wednesday.

The footage shows a black shadow-like figure running across the stands and through crowds of fans at Hernando Siles Stadium in La Paz.

Take a look for yourself:

I don’t know whether it’s the quality of the footage or the lighting (maybe both?) but something just feels off as I watch this.

Clearly the figure is moving faster than a normal human being could, which has some thinking this is a ghost.

Or this could just be a superimposed image, and we’re all being trolled by the internet once again.

Either way, at least the teams didn’t have to spend the night at a haunted hotel.

Rivaldo unseated after rugby player pulls off world’s worst flop

- April 23rd, 2014

The wait is over.

Rivaldo’s reign as worst flopper has come to an end.

You remember Rivaldo, right? The Brazilian international — and former (unofficial) holder of the world’s worst flop — who clutched his face in agony after a Turkish player viciously assaulted him at the 2002 World Cup.

Rest easy, Rivaldo, you’re off the hook now that a Samoan rugby player has one-upped your Academy Award-worthy performance.

We can’t be sure, and we don’t want to jump to conclusions, but we’re thinking Simaika Mikaele, a rugby sevens player for his country, might have made a meal of this.

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon hands out his own NHL awards

- April 23rd, 2014

The Tonight Show and hockey don’t often meet.

Jimmy Fallon’s Tuesday night show was an exception, however. The comedian ran a segment called Tonight Show Superlatives, which was basically a tongue-in-cheek, fake NHL awards show.

Three Pittsburgh Penguins and three Boston Bruins received the silly honours:

The list of “award winners”:

  • Penguins’ Beau Bennett, Most Likely To Get a Penalty for Frosting Tips
  • Bruins’ Brad Marchand, Most Likely to Play a Pizza Delivery Guy in an 80s Movie About Skiing
  • Bruins’ Dougie Hamilton, Easiest to Replicate as a Bobblehead
  • Bruins’ Zdeno Chara, Most Likely to be Two Humans Sewn Together
  • Penguins’ Matt Niskanen, Worst at Darts
  • Penguins’ Simon Depres, 2nd Worst at Darts

Drake lint rolls his pants during Raptors-Nets game

- April 23rd, 2014

Drake took the term “rolling with my homies” to a whole new level on Tuesday.

Toronto’s pride and joy was spotted lint rolling his clearly lint-infested pants during the first quarter in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series between the Raptors and Nets.

The Raptors ended up winning the game 100-95, to tie the series at 1-1, but who cares about that!

Many claim lint rolling isn’t very gangster or thug of Aubrey to do.

I tend to disagree with that line of thinking; I just see it as gangsta maintenance.

It’s refreshing to see the man who runs the T Dot also has time to lint roll court side.

Now you’re talking my language Drizzy.
