Swallow your pride and have no shame as a male in front of a group of women, and chances are you'll go far. Our latest enterprising young man is named Danikka, and he's about to blow your mind. Danikka entered a women's gymnastics floor routine competition, and then stole the show.
We are so proud of the tyke in this video because he absorbs a tough shot and stays on his feet. No flopping for this little guy.
And after a good quick cry, he's back at it. Never too young to learn: You gotta play hurt.Full Story >>
Now that Dwight Howard has settled his contract situation with the Magic, for one more year anyway, we can tackle another equally intriguing issue: How will he look playing himself in "The Three Stooges" movie that gets released April 13?
This is Howard's second crack at the big screen after appearing in the 2010 hoops-themed rom-com "Just Wright" that starred Queen Latifah and Common.
Howard isn't seen in the preview trailer, but this should give you sense of how he might fit in. So as Seinfeld once said, "I will show you The Stooges." (Speaking of which, Larry David will also be in the movie.)
If ever a sport was invented to destroy knee and ankle ligaments, as well as shatter any number of joints and the bones that arrive at said joints, it's downhill ice skate racing. And no one invents sports like Red Bull, which calls this particular brand of self abuse "Ice Cross Downhill."
The finals of this insane race took place at the Red Bull Crashed Ice World Championships 2012 in Quebec City with over 100,000 in attendance. Read that again: 100,000 in attendance. To watch the madmen fly down an ice chute while attempting to stay on their feet.
Look, math is hard, and it's not outside the realm of understanding that in the texting age, one might accidentally pass off an everyday terms as a technical term that becomes one long piece of jargon, rather than the separate words that define said jargon.
I guess what we're trying to say is that we want to defend Chelsea -- the very nice and very lovely woman trying to figure out how long it will take her and her husband to go 80 miles if they're traveling at 80 miles per hour -- but we really don't have a great defense. We appreciate her attempt to use her jogging mile times as an example to better relate the speed of the car, though. Seven-minute miles are nothing to sneeze at.
It's almost too surreal to believe. "Surely," one thinks as he or she watches the video, "this can't possibly be real." We hope, for the sake of saving Chelsea embarrassment, that it is not, and that she is a tremendous actor that has the entire world fooled. Props to her if that's the case. Though, we fear (and therefore love?) that it's not.
Either way, keep running those seven-minute miles, Chelsea. Give all the haters a salute as you leave them in your dust.

I don't know what a tennis ball touched by Rafael Nadal goes for these days, but this guy at Indian Wells was willing to sacrifice his face for one.
What's a bigger sign of devotion: Taking a tumble for a tennis ball or buying and wearing the exact same jacket Nadal donned after the match? Either way, this guy goes above and beyond, or in this case, over and down.
But maybe getting to hug it out with Rafa made it all worthwhile.Full Story >>
Conventional wisdom says that great announcers are made, not born (though one assumes Vin Scully was delivering spectacularly elegant commentary of his own birth). But one high school announcer in Chicago has learned early in his burgeoning career that riding the waves of euphoria in the closing moments of a game can lead to instant stardom. This has been referred to in a number of academic circles as the "Gus Johnson Pandemic."
It doesn't take much to set this clip up. Marist High School is down and has the ball in the closing minutes of a pivotal game against Curie High School. Our intrepid announcer has the call. (Click on the timeline to jump to the explosion of awesome).
