A pair of Russian fisherman recently decided to try an unconventional trick to score a large load. And boy did it backfire.

In a video posted Monday, we see two fisherman leaning over the side of their boat. One of them drops a grenade in the water, and within a second it detonates. The boat is rocked by the explosion and both men are thrown to the deck as water goes everywhere.

Check it out:

Let's hope both men were OK, and the fact that the video was posted suggests that they were.

But next time they go fishing, maybe they'll opt for more traditional tools.

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson will debut his one-man Broadway show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," next week. But that won't be his first time on Broadway. As he reveals in this Playbill video, he was once arrested on that very street. That led to a stint in a detention center in the Bronx, where Tyson met his mentor, the man who would lead him to worldwide fame.

Now, Tyson is back where it all began. His new show, directed by Spike Lee, is based on a six-night stint he did with a similar script in Las Vegas. This time, though, the lights are brighter and the stage is bigger.

Check out some behind-the-scenes footage of Tyson and Lee preparing for the big night.

Tyson looks almost as natural on the stage as he did in the ring. And if his performance is anywhere as good as it was in The Hangover, he should draw rave reviews.

Fans across the country have made amazing catches using unusual objects, but this week one man didn't need anything but his hands.

In the top of the seventh inning of Wednesday's Indians-Tigers game, Delmon Young smacked a foul ball down the left field line. One fan leaped for it, bobbled it, and managed to come down with it cleanly.

Check it out:

The best part about this video? The celebration is just as good as the catch.

The Washington Nationals' relievers are having a stellar season. The group ranks sixth in the big leagues with 32 saves and has helped Washington lower its collective ERA to a major league-leading 3.20

So, what's the secret to the Nationals' pitching prowess this year? "Fifty Shades Of Grey," duh.

Major League Baseball released a video on Thursday of four members of the Nationals bullpen sharing their love for the wildly popular erotic novel. Sean Burnett, Ryan Mattheus, Tyler Clippard and Craig Stammen deliver an exceptional performance in this video.

I've always wondered what relief pitchers do with all that time in the bullpen. Mystery solved.

College football media days have become the forums for all sorts of odd questions. Like when someone asked Tim Tebow if he was a virgin.

This week at Pac-12 Media Days, Washington State head coach and history buff Mike Leach received a bizarre inquiry via Twitter. He was asked to compare two of his players to army generals. Natrually, Leach chose Stonewall Jackson for quarterback Jeff Tuel and Ulysses S. Grant for defensive end Travis Long. For further explication, you'll have to watch the clip below.

Leach, who is not afraid to speak his mind, should provide many more hilarious soundbites during his time in Pullman.

If you've ever played basketball with a wadded-up piece of paper and a trash can, you'll appreciate what this man has brought into the world.

He created a robotic trashcan with a movement-tracking sensor. So when your shot is off, the trash can adjusts to pick it up. This could revolutionize waste disposal and (more importantly) future games of trash can basketball around the office.

Unfortunately for this guy, more and more people are not using garbage cans to dispose of paper. So the next step for this inventor? Create a robotic recycling bin.

These days it seems like there are world records for everything. So it shouldn't be surprising that, apparently, there is a record for an all-female skydive. And according to one Russian news source, that record was broken this weekend.

The 'Pearls of Russia,' an 88-woman skydiving team in Russia, set the new world record for largest all-female skydive this weekend in a city near Moscow. The women formed an awesome flower pattern that must have taken serious practice and coordination.

Even without the record, this is pretty cool.

As it says under the video, this was the team's third attempt. But, hey, a world record is a world record, and three tries for a feat of this magnitude is certainly not something to be ashamed of.

Someone in the Philadelphia Phillies organization must be doing something right, as the Phillies are having a stellar year in the field. Through 97 games, the squad is first in the National League with 2,620 putouts and fifth with a .985 fielding percentage.

And apparently, the good vibes have rubbed off on the team's left field ballgirl. In the seventh inning of Monday's contest between the Brewers and the Phillies, Carlos Gomez smacked a line drive down the left field line. The ball hooked foul, but Phillies ball girl Genevieve Haney managed to snipe the ball on the run with a backhanded grab.

After seeing this play, it should not surprise anyone that Haney was once a star softball player at Hofstra.

Apparently, fans cheered Haney louder than Chase Utley and Ryan Howard after their home runs. A well deserved round of applause.

After surgery on their meniscus, most people lie on the couch and rest. But Blake Griffin is not most people. Rather than sitting on the couch, the L.A. Clipper was lured into the back of a van by Rainn Wilson (a.k.a. Dwight Schrute, the vainglorious villain of "The Office) for a look at life's most pressing problems.

The two discussed bungee jumping, love, meditation and more:

Although to some, the sheer size of Griffin's arms next to Wilson's may be distracting, it's important to focus on the serious life lessons here. Learn hard work from your parents, always have a second career choice and of course, always end a YouTube video with a joke about private parts.

Jerry Rice does not need to prove to anyone that he can dance. The former "Dancing With The Stars" runner-up clearly has moves.

This weekend, however, Rice reaffirmed his dancing dexterity at an after-party for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championships in Lake Tahoe. After Alfonso Ribeiro (perhaps better known as Carlton from "Fresh Prince of Bel Air") finished a rap set, Rice got on stage and proceeded to dance.

While you can't see it in this clip, Rice also breaks out the Dougie. The dance has become somewhat of a fad among athletes, with everyone from Drew Stanton to Jeremy Lin showing off their moves.

It's probably for the best that Ribeiro and Rice didn't share the stage. As good a dancer as Rice is, Ribeiro may have smoother moves. In fact, the two had a quasi dance-off last year at the same event, and it looks like Ribeiro took the crown.
