Watch this to up your softball game

My co-ed softball got off to an 0-2 start this season, mainly because we were rusty as hell. That’s when I remembered those Tom Emanski instructional videos from the 90s. Got to love Fred McGriff’s acting and glowing endorsement.

Jordan vs. Sheen(s)

Just came across this classic battle of the stars featuring a 24-year-old Michael Jordan pitted against Martin and Charlie Sheen. It’s 80s and cheesy af so it quickly grabbed my attention.

NFL aerobics at their finest

It’s been a long time since I regularly watched football on Sundays, but if I have one wish, it’s this. Instead of trotting out some over the hill rockstar or Top 40 songstress at halftime of the Superbowl, let’s mortify America with these timeless NFL aerobics.

Why I love hockey.

It was winter 1982, my Uncle Ken picked me up in his Pontiac Trans Am and cruised out to Long Island for what would be my first hockey game.  People sitting near us were dropping f-bombs at every whistle while guys on the ice were punching the living hell out of each other. Holy shit, where was I?! There was high-flying action, bone-crunching body-checks, organ music, beer spilling, crowds singing and lots of blue collar people rooting for their team as if nothing else mattered. From the moment I walked in and smelled the ice, I was hooked. This would be my religion. My happy place. Welcome back, hockey.

Summer of Ping Pong

Maybe releasing some table tennis gear of our own has me super dialed in, but ping pong is on the up and up. Ping Pong Summer is coming out, New Belgium is making ping pong bottle labels and there are social clubs with naked tournaments. I thought you might as well benefit from me getting sucked into the YouTube vortex so enjoy this pack of ping pong clips below.
