Man vs. Kite – Kite Wins

Now I have never really seen a man picked up by a kite until this video, and after watching it, I can assure you that it is something to see:

Marvin Harrison Now Shooting People

Posted in NFL, Run Ins With The Law on May 2, 2008 by Beast Mode

OK so this right here is totally unexpected, and when I heard about it, I thought it was fake, I was reading it wrong, or it was a joke…but apparently not. According to ESPN:

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison is under investigation in his hometown of Philadelphia in a shooting that took place earlier this week, a source close to the investigation told Anthony Gargano of Philadelphia’s WIP Radio.

The source said the alleged victim came into the bar, Playmakers, around 5 p.m. and engaged in an argument with Harrison, who was at the bar. The victim then left the bar, heading to his car, with Harrison following. Gunfire broke out, the victim was hit in the hand, and a young girl was slightly injured by flying glass from a car that apparently was hit by a bullet.  

Police came to scene, but the victim did not identify a shooter. On Wednesday, according to the source, ballistic tests showed that the gun that had fired the shots was a custom-made Belgian weapon, and police determined that Harrison owned such a gun. 

Police then went to a Philadelphia car wash owned by Harrison to question him about the gun. Harrison admitted owning such a weapon, but claimed it never left his suburban Philadelphia home. 

However, the source said the gun was discovered in a bucket at the car wash, and tests showed that it had fired seven bullets that matched those found at the scene.

OK.  So it looks like he was the shooter.  And Marvin so you know, you are supposed to get rid of the gun in the sewer, not a bucket in the car wash.  You just pulled a Bird.  Sure the gun is nice, but dump it after you shoot someone. Unless, maybe this is just a test by the mainstream media to see how long it takes for something to get all around the blogs.

But seriously this is nuts, Marvin Harrison is probably the last person in the NFL that you would think would do this, so hopefully we hear more about it soon.


LeBron James Punches Himself In His Face – Gets A Wizard Suspended

Posted in NBA, NBA Playoffs, Soft Pro Athletes, The Pain Train, Videos on May 2, 2008 by Beast Mode

Now technically he did not punch himself in the face, but I was pretty much LeBron’s arm flail that caused the punch to the face, and the suits in the NBA office were too dumb and or purposely ignored that fact.  After all, they don’t want to have LeBron James complaining about the physical play again.  Ill let you examine the video for yourself (Thanks To Odenized)(A great screen by screen show over at BulletsForever):

Maybe this is because I am a Bulls fan, but LeBron has been acting like a little girl this series.  Anyway, Darius Songaila is now suspended, so LeBron won’t get punched in this upcoming game.

Oregon Duck To Houston Cougar – “Eat My Nuts!”

Posted in Mascots Gone Wild, The Pain Train, Videos on May 2, 2008 by Beast Mode

I think this is from earlier this year, but who doesn’t love a little mascot on mascot action (Eat My Nuts Part @ 0:40):

Now maybe this is because I go to a small school, but I don’t think I could ever have so much school spirit that I:

  1. Become a mascot.
  2. Get into a fight with the opposing mascot to defend my school’s honor.

Unsportsman Like Conduct Is Fun

Posted in The Pain Train, Videos on May 2, 2008 by Beast Mode

Eh just browsing youtube and I found this video of the top ten most unsportsman-like sports moments.  Some you may know, and some you may not.  My personal favorite was the second #10.  He was clearly going for the balls.

Laurence Maroney’s Chain Makes You Say “OH YEAH!”

Posted in Bling, NFL, Pictures on May 1, 2008 by Beast Mode

(Big Ups To Awful Announcing for the original picture)

So I was checking out Awful Announcing today, like I do, and posted was this picture of Laurence Maroney watching the Celtics game. The point being TNT people spelt his name wrong, and that he has a shiny watch…I want you to forget about that for just one moment. That chain is nothing compared to Maroney’s chain of…the Kool-Aid man. Now I gotta ask, what happened to the good ol’ days when athletes wore chains that had crosses, their number, or a pac-man:

I mean really look close at the Kool-Aid chain…really look close…the diamonds are even red (or at least it appears to be). I am starting to agree with Chris Cooley and his opinion that NFL Rookies are being paid too much.

Avery Johnson Fired

Posted in Coaches Getting Fired, NBA on April 30, 2008 by Beast Mode

So apparently I can predict the future.  Avery Johnson and the Dallas Mavericks decided to part ways today.  I mean I knew he was going to be fired…but this quick (maybe it did go down like this)?  Cuban could have at least shown the man a little respect and given him a week.  But we all know that that isn’t Mark Cuban’s way.  So who is the best coach for this team now?  If D’Antoni is fired like it is reported, I can see him being the perfect fit for this team.  I mean they were the Suns before the Suns were the Suns.  You get what I am saying?

The Bills Drafted Some Interesting Characters On Day 2

Posted in Buffalo Bills, NFL, NFL Draft, Videos with tags , , , on April 30, 2008 by Beast Mode

As you can probably tell by the name of the blog, Beast Mode being Marshawn Lynch’s nickname, I am a Buffalo Bills fan.  And with the draft having concluded last weekend, I already have two late round picks that I hope make the team this year, and I have video to back this claim up.

  • Overall Pick #147: LB Alvin “Ace” Bowen – Compliance Linebacker


  • Overall Pick #224: WR Steve Johnson – Freestyle Rapper


Now both players should be making the 53 man roster, and put him with Bills’ RB Marshawn Lynch, the possibilities are endless.


I think that this team has the potential of being the NFL’s version of the Washington Wizards.  The cheeky fun side of the Washington Wizards that is.  Not the “LeBron is overrated…lets hurt him…I support dogfighting” part of the Washington Wizards.  You got the blogging star of the team (Gilbert Arenas – Marshawn Lynch), and the two young guys (Nick Young & Dominic McGuire – Alvin Bowen & Steve Johnson).  Lets only hope the results are the same (making the playoffs – the Bills haven’t done that since 1999). 

The Adventures Of Mark & Avery: The Firing

Posted in Beast Mode Transcripts, NBA with tags , , , , on April 30, 2008 by Beast Mode

Avery & Mark

Mavericks’ Locker Room – 15 minutes after loss

Mark:  Hey Avery, what’s up?

Avery:  Eh nothing much, just trying to regroup after this playoff loss.

Mark:  Shouldn’t you be used to this by now?

Avery:  What?

Mark:  Nothing.  I need to talk to you.

Avery: What up?

Mark:  Hold on a second, I have to get all of these silly bloggers out of here.

Avery:  This must be serious.

Mark:  It is…ummm…Avery I am going to  have to fire you.  So I guess you should gather up your stuff.

Avery:  Are you serious?  This is so sudden!

Mark:  Really Avery…I mean you convince me to trade for Jason Kidd, and your team has been playing like crap ever since!

Jason Kidd Bike

Avery:  Well you can’t blame all of this on me…it’s not my fault if Josh Howard is high all of the time!

Mark:  I think it is.  What about that players only practice yesterday.

Avery:  Well…

Mark:  That’s what I thought!

Avery:  Yeah…well…you sucked on Dancing With The Stars!

Mark Cuban Dancing With The Stars

Mark:  That may be true…but tell me I didn’t look damn sexy.

Avery:  …I can’t, you looked fabulous.

(In case you are not sure, this did not actually happen.  Imagine if it did though…it would have been awesome!)

Point of this?  Well, I think Avery Johnson is going to be fired.  In part, because the team has started to tune him out, but mainly because this is the third straight year in which a Mavericks team that should have one their respective series (Yes they were a 7 seed this year, but nobody was giving New Orleans a shot until after game 1) lost.
