With trucks like these, who needs enemies?

June 15, 2011

It’s not everyday one gets to see a man run over not once, but twice by indiscriminate pick up trucks — let alone face the reality that the relative value of his well being pales in comparison to that of an “early model” Chevy (the action heats up around the 1:05 mark in the video)

Yes,  if the embarrassment of being run over by your own truck wasn’t enough, surely seeing a cohort streak by your somewhat lifeless body at an Olympian-like pace — chasing after the very pick-up that just smote you down– would be enough for you to do some serious soul searching. Like, just WTF have I done to get here?

Little did you know that fate had not yet had her cruel, cruel fill of you, and that a second, leg-crushing blow had already been set in motion — and from a Ford no less!

That’s when you know it’s time for a change.  Time to find religion. Change religions. Maybe even buy a new truck (even a Japanese-made one). Something, anything to set right the course that had led you so wrongly astray.

Thanks to DBJ for the tip. He drives an “early model” Miata. Oh, and we’re told that the victim here is still alive and “kind of okay.” So that’s nice.

Video: Bully gets body slammed after kid decides he’s had enough, fights back…

Bully gets body slammed by bullied kid who's had enough

Consider this Frump’s first foray into inter-personal relationship porn for social outcasts.  I guess one can only turn the other cheek for so long, you know — even when they’re being targeted by a kid that likely held the record for “World’s Smallest Bully” (however briefly).

Now, I’m not sure if this will have a Hollywood-style happy ending for our little bullied redeemer here — i.e. I doubt this will be the last time he tastes the cold steel of a bad fat joke, or something — but, for now, I think it’s fine to bask in the glory of what’s surely one of the best bully comeuppances we’ve seen in some time.

Here’s to hoping no one got jumped after school…

Thanks to DBJ for championing the oppressed (Via)

YouTube took down three different videos, so we’re just gonna have to host this one ourselves. Sheesh

Guy Dupuy sees Blake Griffin’s car, raises him a between-the-legs dunk

And 1 Streetballer Guy Dupuy pulls off a nice between the legs dunk over a car

In case you haven’t noticed, ever since the ban was lifted back in 1976, dunk shots have been all the rage.  Seriously, it’s not just me. They’re kind of a big deal.

Only weeks ago, that Blake Griffin guy dunked over a 2011 Toyota Corolla Kia Optima to win the NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest.  A few days ago, Jacob Tucker of D-III Illinois College compiled an impressive dunk shot curriculum vitae in hopes of getting invited to this year’s NCAA Dunk Contest.

Now, And1 Live Streetballer Guy Dupuy has entered the fray — possibly upstaging Mr. Griffin in the process. Check out Dupuy’s beasty, between-the-legs dunk shot over a BMW convertible (after the jump)…

Video: Jacob Tucker and his 50-inch vertical want to be in the NCAA Dunk Contest

March 6, 2011

1 Comment

And who could blame him? Seriously, without qualification, this is some of the best dunk shooting I’ve ever seen. The fact that Tucker checks in at just 5’11″ makes it that much more impressive, so one would think he’d be a serious contender at this year’s contest.

Problem is, Jacob is a Senior guard at Division III Illinois College — i.e. he hasn’t been a regular on Sports Center the past few years, and thus would almost certainly get overlooked amongst more high profile candidates.

With that in mind, Tucker turned to the almighty equalizer of the dunk shot universe — YouTube — to drum up support for his dunk contest campaign:

Hey guys I’m Jacob Tucker and I just finished up my senior year of basketball at Illinois College. This video was made in an attempt to get in the 2011 NCAA dunk contest. I’m 5’11″ with a 50 inch running vertical…. I want to send a special thanks to everyone that has helped this grow! This has been incredible!

Well, you’ve got Frump’s vote, Jacob. Of course, in the wake of The Huffington Post, The Big Lead, et al…that probably means very little.

Good luck nonetheless!

Youth Basketball Player Isn’t Shy About Punching Opponents in the Face

Basketball Player Suspended Over Dirty Punch – Watch more Sports

You know, it’s one thing to go after the ref — and body slam him. But punching opposing players in the face? Over some not-so-tenacious inbound defense?  That’s where today’s youth may or may not need to draw the line.

Watch 34-Green closely. You’ll see him inbounding the ball around the 0:20 second mark. Approximately three seconds later, you’ll then see him punching 3-Blue in the face — and all right in front of the referee, who promptly issues an ejection and season-long suspension.

What’s that, mom? Was that an exclamatory, interrogative “What?!?” there at the end? Yeah, well, your offspring  just sucker punched some kid in the face. In the middle of a youth basketball game.

I mean, come on! At least teach him to wait ’til the officials aren’t looking…

Canada: Where scaring the golf course geese gets you a swift kick in the face from the police

January 10, 2011

Yes, it’s true: 51-year-old Buddy Tavares, the guy you see getting drop-kicked in the face around the 20 second mark, has apparently been charged with “Careless Use of a Firearm” — on a golf course.

Shooting at geese on a golf course is not advised -- in CanadaYeah, see, Tavares had a valid permit for the gun, just not on the links — where they don’t issue permits for the use of firearms or other noisemakers that could scare the local geese, which Tavares was apparently trying to do.

Now, while I’d agree that the gratuitous frightening of Canada Geese is an activity that should be frowned upon, was it really necessary to kick this poor fellow — with no criminal record, and already on all fours — in the face? IN THE FACE? Really?

Well, the Kelowna Mountie has been suspended with pay, I’m told, but he’s yet to be charged with anything; and despite the outcry of a Facebook group calling for his head.

Seriously, in the face?

Uncle Gives Nephew a Spanking for the Facebooking Ages

Kid gets spanked by uncle for acting a fool on Facebook
Frump’s talked a bit about generational warfare recently. There’s just a certain je nais sais quoi dividing today’s youth and the elders of generations past, you know? Something lost in translation, in values, or perhaps — in this case — Facebook wall messages.

Apparently this kid was “acting hard” on his Facebook, telling the world he was gonna “stomp [someone's] ass” for some unknown reason.

The shirtless uncle, now a hero of Frump’s, didn’t think too highly of this, and attributed such “gang banging” behavior to the pervasive, negative influence of that awful “Rap” music the kids seem to dig so much these days (video after the jump).

The Best of Winter Driving Fails

December 21, 2010

The Very Best of Winter Driving Fail VideosCan’t speak for B Diddy, but I’m certainly no stranger to winter driving fails. Of course, I like to think that mine have simply been more a product of bad luck — as opposed to stupidity — but then I guess I’m biased.

Starting off here with one of my all-time favorites: The Paignton Slip n’ Slide

Why this couple (1) didn’t listen to their neighbors’ advice about the perils of driving on black ice, and (2) felt it wise to shamelessly bail when this epic fail reached fruition is beyond me. But at least it made for great video!

Make the jump for several more winter driving fail classics, old and new…

Quite possibly the greatest, most epic mountain bike jump fail of all time

December 15, 2010

BOOM! How this guy made it out of that with just a nasty gash in his ear is beyond me. Seriously, probably just a hair away from the intensive care unit there.

Doesn’t a skull fracture, or at least a serious concussion, seem far more appropriate after such a miserable fail? I mean, off the front porch of a trailer? Head-first into a lovely concrete patio? On film? Sheesh.

This kid’s a lot more than just “cool,” how ’bout lucky as “hayull.” Good sh*t, son, indeed.

Love him or hate him, Lebron James is still really good at behind the backboard shots (amongst other things)

December 14, 2010

Frump typically tries to refrain from posting Lebron James-related news.

Maybe it’s because the market is so saturated already, or perhaps because I didn’t particularly care for the way King James handled things over the summer. Or maybe it’s just that my interest in NBA basketball continues to steadily decline since, oh, about 1998 or so.

Either way, it’s still nice to marvel at feats like this from the Miami Heat’s 96-84 victory over the Hornets last night. As you can see, that was to beat the shot clock, too. Fantastic stuff.

Russian Kids: Still not afraid of heights, now tackling reckless, homemade bungie jumping

December 9, 2010

Hey, remember those crazy ass Russian teens going walkabout on that 900 foot tower? If not, scroll back a bit with your mouse and click on that bold text that reads “crazy ass Russian teens going walkabout on that 900 foot tower?” Depending on your level of acrophobia, you may or may not regret it.

Well, as if being insanely high up in the air — unsecured — wasn’t tempting fate enough, those rambunctious red rascals are now hurling themselves off the sides of buildings. Just, you know, fastened to a rope, of course.

Is it really that boring over there, guys? I mean, why not waste your youth on something a bit less dangerous — like, train sledding, or something. Either way, I’m just glad the Cold War is over, lest these whippersnappers get their hands on some launch codes…

Sergio Martinez’s Left Lends Itself to Mounting One-Punch Knockout Craze, Courtesy of Paul Williams

November 21, 2010

‘Tis the Season for Devastating One-Punch KO’s? Maybe. Or maybe Frump just doesn’t follow boxing enough. Are these finishes all that common? Either way, if more bouts ended in this fashion — or at least if more people were made aware of it — I have a feeling the sport might mount a comeback.

A lot of commentators are calling this the Knockout of the Year. I’m probably not qualified to disagree, but I thought this one was pretty dang good, too.

If nothing else, the more prominent stage afforded to Martinez vs. Williams II — not to mention the juicy, underlying revenge motif — might elevate Martinez’s 2nd Round KO above that 3rd Rounder from the Asian Games.

Paul Williams being rendered unconscious certainly adds a dash of “BOOM!” as well…

Kyrgyz boxer delivers brutal knockout at Asian Games

Frump’s not the biggest boxing enthusiast in the blogosphere, but he knows a good KO when he sees it. This one comes courtesy of Kyrgyzstan’s Asadullo Boimuradov, and at the expense of Syria’s Mustafa Farah — Middleweight contenders at the 2010 Asian Games. BOOM!

Seriously, I haven’t seen a right cross that devastating since these two warriors went at it
