Weird Wednesday

Our periodic look at the insanity and hilarity of the sporting world.

My apologies for being late on this today.  Lots of craziness going on in my corner of the globe, and it took a bit to pull the links together this week.

As usual, I'm looking for all the help I can get to get the links for this.  With our recent push to increase the use of FanShots on our site, I'd encourage you to Fanshot any article that you think belongs here.  Just tag it with (WW) at the beginning of the title or description, and we'll be sure to give you credit if the article is used.

Let's start with our Honorable Mentions for the week:

IAAF, IOC: Indian Woman Not Woman Enough To Compete In Track

It seems strange to me that naturally elevated hormone levels can affect the gender that someone can compete against.

The Royals Partied With Fans And Eric Hosmer Bought Everyone Drinks

This isn't really weird, but there is a ton going on at that party, and I'm sure something got weird at some point.

Report: Geno Smith Missed A Meeting Because Of A Dumb Team Policy

You'd think someone who is smart enough to make it into the NFL would be able to convert time zones....

Report: NBA Bans Sexy-Ass Songs From German Cheerleaders' Routine

So only the "ass" in the songs can't be sexy...

Florida Teammates Get Into Fight Over Cleats; Police Called

Only in Florida.

And now for the countdown.

#5 - Bills Say Someone Shined Laser Pointer On Them; Guy Tweets He Did It

Someone had to show the Lions' defenders what they were supposed to be tackling.

#4 - Damn It, Blimp

"And it got so cold, like there was a huge shadow hanging over me....."

#3 - A Bad Track Lady

If at first you don't succeed.... just stop trying.

#2 - This Kangaroo Fight Is Better Than Most Boxing And UFC Matches

Drop these two in an octagon and charge $79.99 for PPV, and I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference.

#1 - Struggling Brazilian Soccer Team Hires Weirdo Hypnotist

I'm not sure how any of this could be a good idea.  Athletes whose livelihood coming from their feet walking over broken glass as a team-building exercise?

Are any of these good enough to dethrone our returning champion?
