By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 29, 2014 6:40 PM
EA Sports has released a new ad today promoting NHL 15, which is due for release on September 9th. This ad features cover athlete Patrice Bergeron reciting poetry about the game he loves so dearly. The ad is titled NHL 15: Feelings and features a side of Bergeron you don't get to see too often.

And in case you missed it, here's the first look of overhead gameplay video that they released a couple weeks ago.

Competitive Ladder Climbing

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 29, 2014 2:10 PM
We're gonna be honest with you, we know nothing about this incredibly entertaining sport. We're not sure what it's called, we're not 100% sure where it takes place, all we know is that it exists and it's amazing. Let's work through this together, we can definitely assume it's in the racing category as completing the "course" before your opponents seems to be the only goal. We can also assume that the sport takes place in Russia because of all the Russian flags that people in the crowd seem to be carrying around. That's all we got.

So, enjoy these hilariously entertaining videos of what we're calling "competitive ladder climbing".

And here's a GIF of the sport you can't stop watching.

Japanese slugger tries hitting 300 km/h pitch

Takeshi Yamasaki made a name for himself by crushing baseballs over the outfield wall. He hit 403 home runs and drove in 1,205 runs during his 25-year Japanese baseball career. The Japanese legend recently appeared on a Japanese variety show, where he was asked to try to hit a pitch traveling at 300 km/h (186 mph):

Obviously those pitches were ridiculously fast, but if you want an idea of how fast they were compared to the fastest pitch in today's MLB, the pitches clocked in around 80 mph faster than Aroldis Chapman's fastest pitch of 105.1 mph.

Norwegian Sport Dødsing Is Basically Competitive Belly Flopping

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 29, 2014 1:28 PM
A couple of days ago, we showed you the insane Italian sport of Calcio Fiorentino, which combines rugby and fighting. Today, we bring to you another obscure sport, this time from Norway. The sport is called Dødsing and from what we gather it follows the same rules as competitive diving, like you'd see in the Olympics, except it's competitive belly flopping.

Watch as these Dødsing warriors completely lay their bodies (stomachs and chests) on the line in these amazing and very painful looking belly flops.

NHL Expansion Teams: Fans' Jersey and Logo Ideas

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 29, 2014 12:47 PM
The internet was abuzz Tuesday night when rumours swirled of the NHL's potential expansion plans. Although the NHL has denied any and all reports, we can still have some fun with the idea. After all it is still August.

A couple of days ago, we asked the social media world to send us some possible names, logos and jerseys for the new teams in Las Vegas, Seattle, Toronto and Quebec City. We received some pretty great ones, but also some not so great ones as well.

Here they are! And if you think you can do better than these, send us your ideas and designs and maybe we'll post them as well!

Farmers create White Sox corn maze

A couple of farmers in Tinley Park have done something amazing with a corn field. Check it out:

It would be pretty interesting to see the step by step process of what it took to do this. Here are some other crazy designs that other farmers have created over the years:

I have a hard enough time drawing these images on a piece of paper and they managed to recreate them in a corn field!

One-on-one with Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey

By Daniel Bruno (@_brewknow) Aug. 28, 2014 5:19 PM
RA Dickey The Canadian Press
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey is more than just the Cy Young winning ace of the staff. Dickey has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, has read a countless number of books, as well as authored a few of his own, has four kids and is an avid Star Wars and Game of Thrones enthusiast. Now 39 years old, Dickey isn't looking for personal achievements in the sport he loves, now it's all about winning a championship with the Toronto Blue Jays. This is my sitdown with one of the most interesting athletes on the planet, R.A. Dickey. (You can listen to the entire interview at the bottom of this page.)

Q: You've been labeled by Head & Shoulders as their "mane man." Who has had your favourite "mane" in the history of baseball?

R.A.: Over the history of baseball? God, there were some great hairdo's of the 80s man, I don't know if I can pick a favourite. There was some mullets going in the 80s that I really appreciate, I think Mitch Williams had a good one, Rod Beck, everybody wore their hair kinda like that.

Bill Murray catches final pitch at Midway Stadium

By Christian Marin (@xianmarin) Aug. 29, 2014 11:35 AM
In 1993, Bill Murray threw out the first pitch for the St. Paul Saints' inaugural season at Midway Stadium. Twenty-two years later, he caught the final first pitch at the stadium:

A co-owner of the team, Murray welcomed fans at the front gate where he took tickets, and also posed for photos with them:

The team drew a franchise record 9,455 fans to the final game at Midway Stadium. They'll move to the new Lowertown Ballpark next season. Over the years, the Saints have been known for their cheap beer, tailgating, and bizarre entertainment and promotions, but it's almost expected when you have someone as interesting as Bill Murray as a co-owner of the team.

Nick Foles Goes Undercover at Fantasy Football Drafts

By Danny Wright (@dannnywright) Aug. 29, 2014 11:08 AM
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles went undercover at several NFL fantasy football draft parties dressed as a waiter in an attempt to fool unsuspecting fans.

The Philadelphia fan base are known to be a hardcore bunch, but the Pro Bowl MVPs mustache and sideburns combo didn’t throw off these guys for even a second. Better make that disguise a bit better next time, Foles!

But guys, if you recognized Foles right away, why didn’t somebody draft him? I think his feelings are hurt!
