Last week, Steven Stamkos traded ice for the gridiron to show off his wicked, powerful shot by launching a puck for a 91-yard field goal.
It turns out that was the first in a series of challenges the Tampa Bay Lightning centre will complete to promote Bauer’s MX3 stick. The next video shows Stamkos breaking stuff — a lot of it — on the ice with his slapshot.
It’s set to great orchestral music and has a lot of nice slow-motion shots, but, again, I fail to see how the stick factors into any of this.
Whatever, it’s another entertaining video.
It’s almost time for October baseball, which means TV stations are getting ready to amp up their coverage ahead of the Fall Classic.
Breaking the seal is TBS, which recently brought Bryan Cranston back to the small screen to put on a five-minute, one-man show depicting some of the most memorable post-season moments in MLB history. (Plus a cameo by Pedro Martinez!)
Too bad it’s just a tease. The former Breaking Bad star does some great impressions.
Like a spot-on Kirk Gibson, who hit a walk-off home run with both legs injured in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series …
Derek Jeter’s flip play to home plate in Game 3 of the 2001 American League Division Series …
Carlton Fisk’s walk-off home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series …
Too bad “Touch ‘em all Joe” Carter didn’t make the cut.
Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is coming along after suffering multiple facial fractures and dental damage as a result of taking a pitch to the face last week against the Milwaukee Brewers.
The reason we know this is because Tuesday he decided to post a gory before-and-after photo to Instagram.
On the left is moments after he was hit, on the right is a recent picture.
Obligatory warning, because it’s kind of disgusting.
At least it’s progress.
We already knew Tampa Bay Lightning centre Steven Stamkos has a wicked shot. The marketing people at Bauer, however, want you to believe that, with the help of his MX3 stick, he can fire a puck 91 yards through a set of uprights.
I don’t know why exactly the stick deserves much credit or how authentic the video is — the Lightning say it’s ’100% real’ – but apparently it’s the first in what will be a series of challenge videos.
Stamkos may have the power, but this trick shot by Nashville Predators defenceman Shea Weber a few years ago displays killer accuracy over long distance.
So you’re one of many Sky Sports reporters dotted around Britain assigned to cover soccer player transfers as the market window closes and …
BAM! Sex toy to the face!
It even got its own Twitter account.
So … yeah, that happened.
