Germans Pronouncing Massachusetts Is Our Favorite New Sport

We can't spell Massachusetts, but at least we can pronounce it. Unlike these Germans, who are utterly flabbergasted when presented with the name of the commonwealth. Who knew watching Germans try to pronounce Massachusetts would be the most amusing thing since The Dudesons? Certainly not us....

Behind the Busta Rhymes Concert Assault

A Brooklyn court yesterday ordered rapper Busta Rhymes to pay $75,000 to a man he assaulted at a concert. The award was a bit of a win for Rhymes as the plaintiff initially sought $500,000, but this news got us thinking about possible causes of this confrontation. A few ideas: He stepped up in the place, but did not step correct. Woo ha. He had to be placed in check. Criticized Rhymes'...

Nine-Year-Old Scores Greatest Goal in Hockey History

When we picture a hockey game played by 9-year-olds, it features a lot of falling and absentminded skating in circles. What it does not feature are daring maneuvers like that pulled off with aplomb by 9-year-old Oliver Wahlstrom in Boston yesterday during the TD Bank Mini 1-on-1 competition.

Today's Obvious PSA -- Blackface Is Not OK

Isn't it amazing that every five or six months someone goes and gets the idea that putting on blackface makeup in a public forum is going to be cool and funny? Like these dudes who did it on Australian television in front of Harry Connick Jr.? Or this model who did it in French Vogue. Or this artist who created Black Jesus in Electric Chair.

Kubrick's 'Napoleon' -- the Greatest Movie Never Made

If you've never heard of Stanley Kubrick's sweeping action biopic "Napoleon," you can be forgiven. The film was never made. Set to start production 40 years ago on the coattails of "2001: A Space Odyssey," "Napoleon" was to be movie-making on a grand scale.

Ah, That's Why They Call It 'Foot'-Ball

Late night Pac-10 games don't get a lot of airplay, so most of the country missed this video of Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles finding a wide-open receiver in the flat and firing the ball ... off his foot and right into the hands of a Washington defender who happened to be standing there. The defender ran the ball back for a game-winning score and, bringing the entire Husky nation to...

Bull Dallying Is Kinder Than Bullfighting, but Only Slightly

No matter where you stand on the propriety or impropriety of bullfighting, one thing is pretty much indisputable: It's no fun for the bull. Also unfun, but considerably less stabby, is the up-and-coming sport called "bull dallying," or, to use a word from this century, "bull teasing." The town of San Sebastian in central Spain is the epicenter of this cruelty-reduced form of f**king with bulls....
