I'm pretty shocked at last week's winner. I was sure that the returning champ would take it again, but apparently weird reading challenges are much stranger and/or cooler than accidental motorcycle stunts. On to the weird of the week:
I Can't Stop Watching This Dude Try To Hit A 186-MPH Fastball
Maybe he should start swinging BEFORE the pitch.
Vanderbilt Overturned A Referee's Penalty By Making Him Read An Email
Up next, Texas "receives" and email allowing 12 men on the defense from the Big 12
Slightly Creepy Bart Simpson Joins Russian Soccer Club
Someone sure is capitalizing on the Simpsons marathon on FXX...
Cyclists Confuse Laundry Soap For Sports Drink, End Up In Hospital
Soap/Sports Drink. They pretty much taste the same, don't they?
And now for the countdown...
#5 - New Zealand FIBA Team Does Haka Dance, Confuses Team USA Players
These dances are cool, but I was disappointed when the USA forfeited the dance-off.
#4 - High School Baseball Game In Japan Takes 50 Innings, Four Days
The best part of the story was that if they had gone 54 innings without breaking the tie, then it would have been decided by coin flip. Seriously? Why 54?
#3 - Marcell Ozuna's Throw Home Almost Hits His Teammates In The Dugout
Maybe they shouldn't have messed with him between innings.....
#2 - Johnny Cueto Celebrates Win By Flicking Mike Leake's Crotch
Doesn't everyone associate wins with touching a teammate's genitals?
#1 - This Ridiculous Catch Took Two Hands And An Ass
Just like they drew it up.
So there you have you countdown. Can any of these (or even all of them) unseat our returning champion?
