There may come a time in life when you’re 83 years old and posted up at the bookies in Glanmire, Ireland, enjoying the retired life. When three men wielding hammers and a gun barge in, what will you do? “You can either run and hide or take a stand and I took a stand,” was the answer that Denis O’Connor found in…
Kathryn Robinson will turn 97 years old next week. Also, according to this delightful Palm Beach Post report, she “lost all sight in one eye and most in the other,” making her legally blind. But that does not stop her from being a tremendous bowler:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Iris Clawson, who turns 85 this year, loves at least three things in life: puzzles, westerns, and the National Basketball Association. “Every night I turn on the TV to see if there are any games,” she says, and during the regular season she watches five or six a week.
Last week, the Colorado Avalanche signed their 2016 10th-overall pick Tyson Jost, a forward who spent the season at the University of North Dakota. Last night, in his fourth game, Jost scored his first career NHL goal against Minnesota.
This great old guy is Choji Murata. He is 66 years old now, and was a pitcher in the Japanese professional league from 1968-1990. He was asked to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a recent game, and the old fella brought the heat:
Tiger Woods is old, and depending how much stock you put into vaguely sourced Twitter reports, possibly too fucked up to play golf. But if this video Woods just posted to his Twitter account is to be believed, he is at least capable of swinging a golf club.
Okay, so we’re now into the third day of talking about Cam Newton dabbin’ on dem folk and this morning on Mike and Mike, Mike Greenberg and Cris Carter discussed what dabbing is. Greenberg, a lame dad, wasn’t familiar with the dance, so he asked Carter. Carter, himself a lame dad, wasn’t familiar with the dance…
It’s been awhile since we’ve had a chance to enjoy(?) some pictures of gross-ass Jerry Jones fondling women while desperately trying to work up a boner, but we can (apparently) do it again today thanks to some new pictures published by Terez Owens.
Let's be honest, this probably isn't a bloggable dunk if it had been done by, say, Terrence Ross or Gerald Green. A good-but-not-great dunk is a little more noteworthy, however, when it's 37-year-old Vince Carter throwing it down, showing us all that sometimes—even when you're a shell of your former self and your best…
What do you get when you give maybe the greatest soccer player of all time and his old strike partner a couple controllers, a soccer video game, and point a camera at them? Pretty much the same level of cluelessness if I gave the same tools to my grandpa. But hey, at least they have fun with how much they suck!
What happened to Mistah F.A.B., anyway?
Here we have some cobbled-together footage of old white people getting hammered in the 1960s, cheekily set to "Black and Yellow" by Wiz Khalifa.
This is Steve Harper, a 39-year-old goalkeeper in his first season for Hull City after being a fixture on the Newcastle United bench for the better part of 20 years, which included stints on loan elsewhere. He is, relatively speaking, baddish at his job.
This old guy made a great play to grab Mark Reynolds's second-inning blast in Chicago. He scaled the fence and leaned almost as far over as possible to snag the ball, much to the delight of the folks around him. And, just like his fellow fan from a month ago, in nearly the exact same spot, he knew he had to throw…
Recently a woman eating at a North Carolina McDonald's found a butter swastika on the inside of her bun. Now, you might think that we are all defiantly anti-swastika out there, but some of the comments on a news story about the incident proved otherwise, including one that concluded with the following:
This deeply upsetting picture comes to us by way of a very strange Twitter user, along with a few other pictures of Jerry Jones and some ladies getting gross and weird together.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently said some very smart things about the uselessness of the NCAA, suggesting that the NBA D-League is a viable alternative for developing future NBA players who would only attend one year of college before going pro because of the one-and-done rule. Larry Brown, now the head…
I'd drop a "Slow news day?!?" burn here, but I'm willing to bet that every day is a slow news day for the Lakewood Ranch Herald.
