In a rare case of OP delivering, a man who promised to eat his shirt on Reddit actually did it. What started out as an offhand comment about the Western Conference Finals turned into this video.

Although he only ate a little bit of a shirt because he doesn't want to die, as far as we're concerned it's the dedication that counts.

If there's one thing we've learned, it's that heads are stronger than golf clubs. Golfer Zac Blair made a mistake while putting and hit his golf club on his head in frustration (similar to the guy in the above gif that Blair later posted in a Tweet about the situation).  

Unfortunately, a bent club is a "non-conforming" club and that meant that he was disqualified.

The Florida Panthers had a "Spacey in Space" night and guess who showed up to join in? That's right, Kevin Spacey. For some reason he's become a bizarre celebrity good luck charm for the team and he's finally come out to see them. 

Unfortunately, they lost that game 5-3, but they still seemed happy to see him.

During a Michigan-Ohio State basketball game, ESPN debuted a camera angle that was supposed to make people feel like they were sitting courtside. Unfortunately, it was not the experience they hoped for. 


via @BTpowerhouse

It turned out to be a weird angle that didn't account for the referees who ended up blocking out much of the screen anytime they walked by.  People hated it so much, it's probably safe to say that ESPN will not be trying this again. via @AceAnbender, @eboland11, @BryMac@Reflog18

Yesterday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the Seattle Seahawks running back the trademark to his phrase, "I'm just here so I won't get fined".

Lynch filed for the trademark less than 3 weeks after he used it to answer more than 20 questions at Super Bowl XLIX's media day.

It takes a serious set of stones to openly mock LeBron James for being a crybaby when you're sitting four feet away from the demi-god of a man. An epic moment of awkwardness in every sense of the word.

When Anthony Mish, Seattle Seahawks mega-fan, created The Hawk House he went all out. According to his GoFundMe, he's put in $30,000 or roughly 175,000 Christmas lights and then spent 400 hours blanketing his house, all as a tribute to his favorite team.



Typically Mish's extravagant display is on from 5pm - 9pm weeknights and 5pm - 10:30pm on weekends. Which leaves some neighbors less than enthused. Mish claims that while drivers love the display, he's working to "tone it down" to satisfy some neighbor's complaints.

Of course when the Seahawks are playing on Sundays, Mish changes up the display a bit to support his team.

The big and burly Pittsburgh Penguins took off the pads, hung up the skates, and created a knockout Home Alone parody just in time for the holiday season.

This couldn't come at a better time. We're still trying to deal with whatever sort of cigarette munching, crazy-eyed, mop-headed, sewage beast the once beloved, vaguely adorable Macaulay Carson Culkin evolved into.

Nebraska had a disappointing season, ending with a 5-7 record. Husker fans have a lot of feelings about it too. So when Wide Receiver Brandon Reilly went out to eat and encountered a server who wanted to rant about the Huskers, apparently not realizing who was sitting at the table, he decided to leave her that "tip" instead of a monetary one.

Reilly ended up pulling down the tweet after responding to some heated tweets about it.

If you're a man's man, you're probably freaking the f*ck out over the fact that July 15 is 'No Sports Day', at least according to this tantalizing piece of unnecessary gender politics nabbed by Jezebel.

On this of all days, there will be no sports on television.

You're probably hyperventilating already. If you are a dude, that it.

Netflix's PR, from the MLS Group, wanted everyone to know that there was a way to continue reflecting all of the anthropological archetypes that were popularized in 1990s stand up comedy.

Men be warned: girlfriends and wives around the U.S. are going to take "no sports on TV" as an invitation to gain some serious TV power – whether by recommending a favorite rom-com or multiple episodes from a favorite drama series. And, women be empowered! Sports will not be there to save him this time.



It offered suggestions for how you should continue to fulfill those engrained cultural archetypes for one day before everything can return to normal, hyper-gendered, everyday tranquility. The way to achieve that paradise can only be found in Netflix of course. It made sure to provide a separate list of alternatives for both the men and the women.



For the men, Netflix has put together a list of content that will help you and your girlfriend compromise on your entertainment:



It suggested Silver Linings Playbook, saying "Satisfy her need for romance, and you'll get the added opportunity to view Jennifer Lawrence the entire time."

Or prompted you to watch Rudy, saying "Get her to realize that everyone loves a good underdog story so you can watch some football..."

Or, don't worry because "just as an FYI - there's more than 50 of ESPN's 30 for 30 titles on Netflix if you plan to just stream on your phone or laptop while she takes over the living room."

It also gave comforting and scheming suggestions for all you sports-hatin' ladies out there.

For the women, this is your day, ladies. Get him hooked on some of your favorite TV shows or get him to finally watch that romantic comedy you've been dying to share with him. Netflix has put together a list of some of the best content to share with your guy on the one day a year the TV is yours, no excuses.



Though it just gave a list of films like One Tree Hill, Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, Parenthood without seeing the need to justify any of the picks.

Oooooof.

Technology is supposed to make life easier, and in this case, it only made things worse.

A TV show in Norway called “Golden Goal” strapped headsets onto some soccer players so that they could only see a bird’s-eye-view of the field.

And the result is absolutely hilarious.

It’s not exactly the most exciting game in the world, but watching them try to navigate around and connect with the ball is pretty entertaining.

The players stick their arms out like a horde of zombies and hobble around just as slow.

At one point the goalie just lays down to make it easier to block any shots, which was the smartest thing he could have done.

Way to use your braaaaaaains…

FMX biker Josh Sheehan made history this week as the first motocross rider in the world to complete a triple backflip.

He performed the stunt at Pastranaland in Maryland on April 28, and he has pent the last year preparing for it.

Travis Pastrana, who owns the park, was the first to perform a double backflip back in 2006.

A guy got owned by a woman with bigger muscles than him at a Philadelphia Soul game last week.

During a “Flex Cam” break, the camera pans around the crowd and let’s the arena football fans show off their guns.

At one point towards the end it landed on a both a guy and a girl, and the guy quickly stood up to show-off his arms.

Little did he know that there was a much more muscular woman behind him about to steal the gun show.

“You’ve been stoned, my brother!” says the announcer.

The 2015 Austin Marathon was held this past weekend, and the final stretch for one of the runners was both inspiring and pretty hard to watch.

Kenya’s Hyvon Ngetich was leading the pack for most of the race, but near the finish line her body started to give up.

She ended up crawling the rest of the way (about 50 yards), even refusing to use a wheelchair offered by race officials.

“For the last two kilometers, I don’t remember,” said Ngetich. “Finish line, I have no idea.”

Despite the struggle, she still ended up getting 3rd place, and the race director offered her the same amount of money as the second place finisher.

“You ran the bravest race and crawled the bravest crawl I have ever seen in my life,” he said. “You have earned much honor, and I am going to adjust your prize money, so you get the same prize money you would have gotten if you were second.”

You can watch all 4.5 minutes of her finish below.
