Video: LaDainian Tomlinson – LT Slide Electric Glide

Posted on January 12, 2010. Filed under: Fun & Games | Tags: , , |

We’re not entirely sure why San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson is trying his hand on 1980’s style rap, or even if it’s not just a well made fake, but either way – it wins weird video of the week by a long margin. Enjoy:

YouTube Christmas Specials

Posted on December 24, 2009. Filed under: Fun & Games | Tags: , , , , , , , |

With very little sport going on today and tomorrow, we thought we have a look around YouTube for some visual Christmas spirit. Here’s a few found and throught we’d share:

Charlie Brown Christmas

A funny and gentle reminder that Christmas is supposed to be less about shopping and more about community and celebrations.  Simply timeless:

Walking In The Air

Two versions of this song, originally written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs’ 1978 children’s book The Snowman.

First, the original version from the film, performed by St. Paul’s Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty.

And second, the same song performed by Finnish band Nightwish and the extremely talented Tarja Turunen.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Christmas simply wouldn’t be complete without it!

Rage Against The Machine Christmas Video

We’ve tweeted about this one before, but it’s just too good and different as not to share it again.

Somehow a Tiger Woods joke worked its way into a recent production of the Aladdin stage musical at Disney’s California Adventure theme park. Not from the crowd, but on stage – and thanks to YouTube, everyone can share it now (from around one minute in).

Despite 1700 shovelers having been called in to clear Lincoln Financial Field before the Philadelphia Eagles v San Francisco 49ers game last weekend, there was still plenty of the white stuff left inside the stadium for the 70.000 fans to make use of – and there’s only one correct way to use snow in this kind of setting: Snowball Fight!

Blitzen, the self-proclaimed No. 1 reindeer in the world, has a message for Santa Claus, as he drops his boss, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James with the diss song of the year:

But Santa Claus hits back after the reindeer challenge him to a game of basketball. Looks like it’s time to lace them up:

Another Tiger Woods Song: you could have been like Derek Jeter

Posted on December 11, 2009. Filed under: Fun & Games | Tags: , , , |

From the “Only in America” Department:  a guy on Facebook offers to let “his FB friends” shoot up his rather nice 60-inch flatscreen TV if their team can beat the Redskins. Well, the Saints beat the Redskins, so it was time to call in the bet – and calling it in they did…

The Tiger Woods Spoof Games

Posted on December 9, 2009. Filed under: Fun & Games | Tags: , , , , |

No less than three web games have been released, based on the, now discredited, early suggestions that his now famous car accident was caused because he was running away from his wife.

In Tiger Woods Wife Outrun, Woods is in his black Cadillac Escalade with a mistress in the passenger seat and players must dodge obstacles while being chased by a golf club-wielding character resembling Nordegren.

Hit too many obstacles and the club-wielding wife runs to the front of the car and proceeds to bash Woods and the windscreen relentlessly until it’s game over.

Tiger Woods Wife Outrun
Game number two, Golfer’s Getaway, follows the same premise but with slightly better graphics:

Tiger Woods Golfers Getaway
Lastly, Tiger Parking Slam takes a slightly different approach, with players tasked with parking Woods’s car in increasingly difficult scenarios while dodging golf club swings from Nordegren:
