Former Miami Hurricane football player Dan Sileo is slightly concerned about the state of Miami football

September 13, 2012

In case you missed it, Miami took a pretty epic beating at the hands of Kansas State last weekend. What was supposed to be a fairly competitive game saw the Canes pummeled 52-13 in Manhattan, and — while I haven’t spoken to any personally — I’m sure such a result left many Miami fans wondering just how long it might be until their beloved program gets back to its rightful place amongst college football’s elite.

One such fan, and former Hurricane defensive tackle in fact, is Mr. Dan Sileo. Sileo actually began his playing days at Maryland in 1983, where he apparently broke the school’s bench press record previously held by NFL Hall of Famer Randy White. Not surprised.

Shortly thereafter, however, Sileo was kicked off the team after allegedly tossing a fellow student off the first-floor balcony of his dorm. I’m sure no one questioned Sileo’s passion, though.

Not willing to let his people tossing skills go to waste, Sileo soon made his way down to Coral Gables in 1984, but only after a summer tour with the Bridgeport, Connecticut chapter of the Hell’s Angels (seriously, all this is on his Wikipedia page, so you know it’s true).

Once with the Hurricanes, Sileo managed to keep his scholarship long enough to become part of what Sports Illustrated voted “The Most Hated Team of All Time”. After one year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, however, Sileo left people tossing behind and eventually found his true calling as a radio host for 560 WQAM, a Miami-based sports radio outlet.

Needless to say, the passion is still there. The sanity, of course, remains in question. After all, it’s not everyday one hears kicks to the groin and/or eye gouging offered as motivational advice to college football players. But hey, it’s all just fun and games when confined to the epic meltdown of a man that still holds the title of strongest man in Miami Hurricanes football history, right?

Bull Shark Causes Ape Sh*t Reaction in Myrtle Beach Inter-Coastal Waterway

July 11, 2012

10 Comments

I stopped swimming in inter-coastal waterways a long time ago. Not because of bull sharks, mind you. They never really crossed my mind. More of a general fear of the unknown…and dirt. Maybe gar, or gators, or something else that probably poses no real threat to me, but not bull sharks. Until now.

The bull shark above, hooked off a residential dock in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina’s inter-coastal waterway, was supposedly a 6 to 7 footer. It was also eating a 5 pound red drum. Given the priceless reaction of the anglers, I think it’s safe to say that folks down in Myrtle Beach don’t typically encounter such beasts in those waters, and I imagine they’re somewhat grateful for that — though probably not as grateful as they apparently were to have caught it all on camera.

Move Over ‘Velvet Fog’, There’s a New Golden Voice in Town

December 20, 2011

Man, it’s been awhile since I’ve frumped. In fact, it was going to be my new year’s resolution to remember my login and get back into this. However, every once in awhile, something comes along that makes you want to be a better person. It makes you want to smash the goals you’ve laid out for yourself and set the bar even higher. My something came this morning, when the above video arrived in my inbox.

I’ve done the Google research, and Will Forte does not have a new a movie coming out where releasing a viral video would help boost attendance. So, this thing is legit. I’m not sure what show it is, but that doesn’t matter as I’ll never watch it. How could they top this? My favorite part are the looks on the impressionable youth in the audience. This kid in particular may be our new Twitter avatar for the foreseeable future.

Enjoy the video as well as the ‘Re-dub’ which is just as enjoyable after the Frump.

Video: 49ers were given five free yards by the referees on the game-winning drive versus the Lions

October 18, 2011

As long as the NFL is around, I think it’s safe to say there’s going to be ample criticism of the league’s officials. Such criticism is typically not difficult to find, especially the really blatant stuff. I won’t even bother linking you to any of the ranting and raving about other calls from Week 6′s games, especially since we’ve got perhaps the very best bad call of them all right here.

You know, there are bad missed calls — like that blatant block in the back by 49ers #56, Tavares Gooden, on this Ted Ginn, Jr. punt return that setup San Francisco’s game-winning drive against the Lions last Sunday. You can see it at around the 14 second mark in the above video, then again in better, slower detail at around 40 seconds.

Those kind of bad calls, I mean, they’re not really post-worthy. Ted Ginn, Jr. stepping out at the Lions 40, and then the officials placing the ball at the Lions 35 for no apparent reason, however…that’s post-worthy.

Bobby Layne

Perhaps Bobby Layne decided 9-straight wins was enough for Detroit...

I suppose if 49ers TE Delanie Walker’s game-winning score hadn’t gone for 5.999 yards on 4th and goal from the 6, even those 5 free yards the officials handed out eight plays earlier wouldn’t be that big a deal. After all, the Lions still had a chance to stop their opponent, and, despite there being under two minutes to play when they first got the ball back, Detroit even had two more chances on offense that they squandered.

Still, one has to wonder: Just how the f*ck does something like this happen at such a critical juncture in a National Football League game? Again, I’ll give the zebras the block in the back, despite how blatant it was — that kind of no-call happens every weekend. Spotting a team five yards inside their opponent’s half in the 4th quarter, though? Just really, really bizarre.

Hell, maybe it’s the Lions staff and/or players that need to be called out on this one. Inexcusable to allow stuff like this to happen in a game that literally came down to inches. Luckily for Schwartz and the Lions — and the refs — it looks like the post-game handshake blowup between Schwartz and Harbaugh will overshadow the gross negligence documented the video above.

(Classic) Pic of the Day: As if we needed another reminder that the U.S. is painfully lagging behind the Far East…

The superiority of Asian technology is embodied in how they shrink their cunts

It started with widening the gap in education and scholastic aptitude in general. Then virtually insurmountable innovations in consumer electronics. Next came the complete and utter domination of the automobile industry, just prior to unveiling perhaps the most significant strides in genetic engineering to date.

Now, they’re shrinking vaginas and killing spermatozooms in one fell, over-the-counter swoop.  Do you even know know what spermatozooms are? I sure as hell don’t. But they do.

Time to awake up, America. Time to wake up, stop bitching about a 10% unemployment rate and ludicrously large national debt, and smell the lurbri cate the Far East is using to f*ck you in the ass. I mean, we’ve been trying to eradicate HIV/AIDS for what now, 30-plus years? They’re packaging the cure and placing it in a conspicuous box on the shelf at a Shanghai CVS.

Listen, we may never make the most reliable cars again, or the HDTV with the deepest blacks and best contrast ratio, but I’ll be damned if we’re gonna fall behind in the race to shrink c*nts.  Am I right?  Who’s with me?!? U-S-A! U-S-A!

At first I was happy about drafting Peyton Hillis in the 3rd Round, but then I saw this video…

August 30, 2011

This child-like signature doesn't exactly match that on the receipt Yeah, Madden Curse be damned, I was pretty stoked about getting a guy that was a top 5 RB in nearly all formats last year with pick 3.11 in a savvy, 12-team Fantasy draft I’ve been participating in for years. The fact that Hillis is a known hog wrestler and sports probably the best facemask in the NFL was an added bonus, of course.

However, apparently not content to let me enjoy the spoils of my draft success, today my friend, colleague and Fantasy Football competitor — The Gingerhead Man — decided to link me to the above video, which is currently featured at www.peytonhillis.com.

Needless to say, I was devastated. If the negative karma associated with such a display doesn’t mandate a drastic slump in Peyton’s performance this year, I’m not sure what possibly could. I mean, just where the f*ck is Peyton’s head at this year?

What’s next? Leaving shitty tips for hand to mouth hospitality industry workers at fine dining establishments, or something?

To be fair, based on the autographed helmet pictured above, whether or not that was the Peyton Hillis dropping a less than 10% tip is possibly in question. Whether or not Hillis has an 11-year old girl signing memorabilia for him is in question as well.

Either way, let’s just say I’m glad I had the wherewithal to pick up Montario Hardesty in the 13th.

Alabama Greeks may have just put the final nail in the coffin of sorority recruiting videos…

August 16, 2011

And I suppose we owe them some level of gratitude.

Now, I’m not sure how or why, but Frump apparently let this phenomenon pass it by. Yes, it seems over the past few years the student bodies of several esteemed academic institutions, including — but not limited to — Baylor, (somewhat esteemed) Florida State, and even Columbia Business School, have made numerous examples of relatively professional, marginally successful, and mildly bewildering YouTube recruitment videos.

Of course, as you see, none of them quite capture that particular, peculiar essence of “WTF” the way our Crimson Tide girls do up there.

Indeed, apparently not content nor wise enough to sit idly by in the midst of such endeavors, this panhellenic coalition of Greek forces at the University of Alabama made its very own “Going Greek” video, so to speak. Sadly, I’m not sure even Nick Saban — despite the blatant, pandering reference — could make this pitch a convincing one. I mean, “Friday,” was, like, so last week, ladies.

Thanks to the Admiral for “Going Greek” on this one.

Video: Woman freaks the f*ck out after horse-drawn carriage mishap

If you’re one of Frumpzilla’s literally dozens of return readers, then this may come as a surprise, but — believe it or else — we generally don’t take pleasure in other people’s pain. Truth.

Having said that, sometimes said pain is apparently derived from such unreasonable, ridiculous sources that, well, I guess we simply can’t help ourselves.

Take the inordinate amount of pain experienced in the above video; it’s a classic example of this phenomenon. I mean, short of  being under the impression that a nuclear device was somehow implanted in that horse — one triggered by the equine choosing to backup and/or deciding to take a break — is there any rational reason susceptible to empathy for those hysterical (albeit hilarious) cries of “Run! Run!” ?  The huffing? The puffing? The Blair Witch Project-inspired cinematography?

I say no. Which, of course, is why I took such great pleasure from this incident. Save the fallen horse, obviously.

With trucks like these, who needs enemies?

June 15, 2011

1 Comment

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.

Pic of the Day: The Trouble With Audrey

English to German dictionaries as racist as ever -- Audrey gets in trouble with her family for dating a black man

As you may or may not have noticed, the Frumpzilla staff tends to take somewhat of a “summer sabbatical” between the months of May and July, and on a somewhat annual basis. The reasons for this are not few in number, but then none of those reasons are important here — we just wanted you to know we haven’t abandoned you (we also know you were worried).

Having said that, expect us to be back at full Frumping force circa August. Oh, and from time to time we may drop in for something like our friend Audrey up there.

Now, as we all know, some things require a bit of context before they can be fully appreciated and/or understood properly. Unfortunately, we have absolutely no context to offer here, other than the fact that this appears to be from a pocket English-German dictionary — possibly one issued by the Association of Southern Baptist Missionaries.

Beyond that, we’re left to mere speculation as to the publisher and/or source of the material, but — whatever the case — I suppose it doesn’t take away from its bizarre, WTF quality (especially in light of the rich, progressive history of ethnic and cultural tolerance found in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany).

Dan Adler for Congress Knows How to Make a Good Political Ad

May 12, 2011

Dan Adler says minorities should stick together, especially Asians and Jews

Dan Adler -- Possibly your next United States Congressman

We try to avoid serious political discussions around here as much as possible. You know, they’re just not our bag, Frumpsters.

We do, however, occasionally tackle the fun stuff; crazy stuff; and even the very crazy stuff that pops up at even remote locations on the political spectrum. As such, we had no choice but to take notice when Dan Adler — Democrat running for Congress in California’s 36th Congressional District (Los Angeles) — started dropping WTF political ad bombs on the nation.

The one up top — in which the former Disney Executive turned Congressional hopeful takes a somewhat bizarre approach to endearing himself to the minority vote — is probably the most notable at the moment (and for good, WTF reason), but don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s necessarily the “best” Adler’s campaign has to offer…

Kitten Crash Test

May 6, 2011

0 Comments

It’s Friday, so I think we can get away with crazy stuff like this.

I have no idea why this video got me so good. It sure as hell couldn’t be the mere inclusion of adorable, cuddly little kittens (right?), so maybe it’s the insanely dramatic score, or the faux slomo. Then again, maybe just the previously inane concept of a cat crash test, alone, is enough to tickle Frump’s fancy on a Friday.

Whatever it is, it’s good. Kapawmecm, indeed!

No kittens were harmed by DBJ during the making of this video (at least as far as we know)

Sharpsburg, North Carolina man stares down raging tornado, wins…

April 18, 2011

0 Comments

Meet Steven Hoag, of Sharpsburg, North Carolina. He may or may not be afraid of many things, but tornadoes — almost certainly — aren’t one of those things.

Protected only by his built Ford tough truck, Hoag nonchalantly calls his wife from a parking lot adjacent to the Wilson, North Carolina Walgreens. Likely nothing out of the ordinary for Steven — other than that tornado racing towards him from about half a mile away.

Yep, there it goes. Busting up power lines; ripping off the roofs of houses; plowing through Walgreens; erratically dispersing debris along its path of destruction. Just the kind of stuff tornadoes do, you know? The kind of thing Steven Hoag takes a calm, cool, collected approach to.

That’s just how Eastern North Carolina rolls, folks. Laid back, come what may attitude to any and all of life’s little problems — except snow, of course.

A good 1/2 inch of snow means it’s time to head down to the bomb shelter. Sure, it’s well-stocked, but life as we otherwise know it stops for 72 hours after a nice dusting. As it should…
