You probably remember the original Uncle Drew commercial. The video, which starred Kyrie Irving as a washed-up streetballer named Uncle Drew, went viral immediately and has nearly 16 million hits on YouTube to date.

Now, the 2012 Rookie of the Year is back, and he's bringing along a friend. Pepsi released "Uncle Drew: Chapter 2" this week, and it is just as creative as the first one. The new commercial co-stars Kevin Love as Wes and includes a cameo from Bill Russell.

"What these young bloods have to understand is that this game has always been, and will always be, about buckets," Russell tells Uncle Drew.

"That's what I've been trying to tell them, B," says Uncle Drew.

Together, Uncle Drew and Wes return to the street courts in Los Angeles to take on some "young bloods." In a game that may or may not be staged, Irving and Love absolutely dominate their opponents.

Not bad for a couple of old-timers.

If hockey doesn't work out for P.K. Subban, he can certainly look forward to a career in television.

While waiting for the NHL lockout to be resolved, the Montreal Canadiens defenseman recently took a turn as the weatherman at CTV Montreal, and he did an excellent job.

Subban is incredibly comfortable on camera, and he even cracks a few jokes. When mentioning Hurricane Sandy, Subban says, "We labeled [the eye of the storm] with an 'L' for loser because we don't like Sandy."

Subban even spoke for too long during one segment, which might be a first for a professional athlete.

Bravo, P.K.

Note to all employers looking to hire: Subban is available and well qualified.

An attempted stunt meant to impress college football scouts went terribly wrong for one 19-year-old Floridian.

Bladimir Barreto, a former high school football player at West Melbourne Christian Academy in Florida who was looking to show off his athleticism for college recruiters, recently set out to jump over a moving car. In a graphic video captured by Bladimir's brother, Giovanny, a shirtless Bladimir runs straight at a white Honda Accord driven by Bladimir's other brother, Jerome. Barreto appears to mistime his jump, and he is flung into the air by the car.

According to Orlando's WKMG 6, Barreto was airlifted to Holmes Regional Medical Center with several broken bones and head injuries. WKMG 6 also reported that Barreto received 89 stitches in one leg.

"He's lucky that it wasn't worse than what it was," said Yvonne Martinez, spokeswoman for the Palm Bay Police Department."

Officer Andrew Pidgeon arrived at the scene minutes after Barreto's injury.

"One of the brothers went around to the house and got his mother," Pidgeon told Florida Today. "She was a wreck and was there holding her son."

Pidgeon said charges are pending against Jerome Baretto for reckless driving and lack of a valid license.

The Gronk spike has gone global.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, he of the monstrous celebratory football strike, took his talents to London. The British were treated to a pair of Gronk spikes during New England's 45-7 romp of the St. Louis Rams.

But those weren't the only spikes of the weekend. During a rally at Trafalgar Square in London, fans chanted, "Spike the mic" to Gronkowski as he stood on stage. And in true Gronk fashion, he gave the people what they wanted.

In what is now being called 'The Spike Heard Round the World,' Gronkowski threw down his microphone as only he could.

Gronkowski's life is just a reality show waiting to happen. Seriously though, we're all waiting patiently for the Gronk reality show. Because it's going to be amazing.

As a news anchor, you normally don't have to worry about animals interfering with your broadcast. You're generally tucked away in a comfortable, indoor studio.

But when you're out in the wild, especially if you're broadcasting right next to a large bay, anything goes.

Covering the World Series in San Francisco, Paul Robins of Sacramento's KTXL morning show learned that lesson the hard way this week, when during a morning broadcast he was hit in the shoulder with bird poop.

While Robins' co-anchor, Bethany Crouch, doubles over in laughter, Robins can't believe his fate.

"One of my goals in life is to make it on YouTube," Robins says, "and I think I just did."

With the NHL lockout keeping hockey players away from organized team activities, a group of NHLers recently gathered in Aurora, Ontario for the third annual BioSteel Camp, a private offseason training camp. Among those players were notorious jokesters Michael Cammalleri and Paul Bissonnette. With those two in tow, a little bit of mischief was inevitable.

And as a matter of fact, Cammalleri did not even wait for the training camp to begin before he pranked his buddy "BizNasty."

As Bissonnette was driving up the the camp, Cammalleri instructed a security guard to stop and question him with some ridiculous questions. For his part, Bissonnette takes all the ribbing very well.

"Are you a hockey player?" she asks Bissonnette.

"Well, yeah, sometimes."

When the guard asks Bissonnette who he plays for, he says, "Phoenix. Well, maybe Quebec soon."

Upon Cammalleri's orders, the security guard even gets Bissonnette to get out of his car and remove his shirt.

"You're trying to tell me you're actually an NHL player?" she asks incredulously.

Here's the video, watch and laugh:

Last season wasn't the smoothest year for Cammalleri, but it's good to see he's having some fun.

Throughout the month of October, NFL players have been wearing pink items as a show of support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink sleeves, cleats, gloves, etc.

And in addition to the color theme, many players have gone out of their way to raise awareness.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has pledged to donate $10,000 to breast cancer research for every touchdown he scores during October. Meanwhile, Fitzgerald's teammate, Nick Eason, took matters into his own hands.

The Cardinals' defensive end lost his mother, Iris Wilcox, to breast cancer in August. And to show his support for breast cancer awareness, Eason recently went to a Minneapolis mall and destroyed a car that had the words "breast cancer" written on it. While dozens of shoppers watched in amazement, the 6-foot-3, 300 pound Eason repeatedly took a sledgehammer to the automobile.

With his mother's passing coming just weeks before the 2012 campaign began, Eason is playing this season with a heavy heart. And under extremely difficult circumstances, Eason has spoken earnestly about his pain and his resolve to fight the disease.

"I’d wear pink even if my mom didn’t have breast cancer," Eason told FOXSports.com. "Any time anyone dies from a terminal illness, it’s a battle for them, a battle for that person and their caretaker."

A few weeks ago we introduced you to a 4-foot-5 streetball sensation named Mani Love. Despite his size, Love has an extremely impressive game. Don't just take it from us, Terrell Owens will tell you the same thing.

The 6-foot-3 former wide receiver, who was on the basketball team in college at Chattanooga and even played in the 1995 NCAA Tournament, recently battled Love in a game of one-on-one at a Los Angeles gym. You'll never believe who won.

That's right, Love pulled it out by a reported score of 15-14. Love's win is made all the more impressive by the fact that he barely took the ball anywhere near the hoop. He relied mostly on a killer jump shot to sink Owens.

"Good competition, nice handles," Owens said afterwards about Love. "He had me grasping for air a couple times."

Safe to say that when it comes to Love, the hype is real.

Just when you think you've seen it all in New York City, here's a video of two guys decked out in wetsuits and surfing their way through the streets of the Big Apple.

Actually, it's more like "skatesurfing," as these guys had wheels attached to their boards. But it's still pretty cool. And even in New York City, where bizarre can sometimes be the norm, these guys turn the heads of pedestrians.

The video is a promotional clip for the new surfing movie Chasing Mavericks. Unlike this video, that film actually takes place in the water.
