Speedflying

Halvor Angvik and Jokke Sommer think just skiing or parachuting isn’t exciting enough, so they do both at the same time. Good thing they uploaded this footage for people not as brave as they are.

Response to LeBron

Response to LeBron

Do the good people of Cleveland think LeBron James’ recent Rise ad for Nike is just more narcissistic, self-promotional build-up from a guy whose actions speak louder than his words? Hmm.

Kobe as Iron Man? Magic as Wolverine? MJ as Nick Fury? Marvel artists teamed up with ESPN to create a series of comic book cover-style art of NBA stars. If you’re a Cavs fan, brace yourself.

Earl the Bowler

Earl the Bowler

Pro bowler Chris Barnes takes on EARL (Enhanced Automated Robotic Launcher) capable of rolling an identical shot nearly every time. But its precision is its downfall. The score stands: humans 1, robots 0.

Hula Hoop Stunt

Hula Hoop Stunt

Well, it isn’t free diving or sick parkour moves; it’s 4 non-extreme dudes having some good fun jumping through a hula hoop in a synchonized and humorous fashion. You’ve got to start somewhere.

Great camera angles in killedthewind’s sweet video footage of riding above the ocean through progressive strapless surfing, kite wake-skating, and other wind fueled mayhem. (Thanks John!)

Cowboys Stadium Shot

If you thought the 200-foot shot was nuts, check out this looper from the second highest tier of the Dallas Cowboys’ Stadium. Watch the side view to get a better idea of how insane the shot is.

Cyclist Celebration Fail

Cyclist Celebration Fail

Rule number two in any race: even when the odds are against you, don’t ever give up. Why? Because of Rule number one: the competition isn’t over until someone crosses the finish line.

Football Theme Song

Football Theme Song

(NSFW) A football anthem made by and for people who are NOT fans of the sport. Hilarious, offensive and creepy. We don’t understand why this doesn’t have millions of views. Then again, we do.

The Funny Or Die team prove that bowling can be fun to watch. The tricks are lame at first, but quickly become hilariously ridiculous. We are now fans of outdoor bowling. And bowling victory poses.

They are the future LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant, they’re the future Harlem Globetrotters, they are the future… of swimming pool basketball. Oh, to be young and stupid.

200 Yard Golf Gong Shot

200 Yard Golf Gong Shot

Can you imagine having a golf shot that’s accurate enough to hit a tiny 9-inch metal gong at a distance of 200 yards? Most of the pros in this video come awfully close, but David Howell hits it dead on.

World’s Longest Basketball Shot

World’s Longest Basketball Shot

We really want to call “fake” on this clip, but after watching it numerous times, we think it’s real. The Legendary Shots calculate that Evan Sellers threw this ball over 200 feet to make a perfect basket.
