Nabil and Derek prepare for Drake Night

Carolina Panthers players lip-synced 'Hello' by Adele and it was hilariously perfect

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 10:26 PM

What was more surprising, the Carolina Panthers starting the season 10-0, or Adele dropping another sensational album?

Obviously it's the Panthers perfect start, even though Adele shocked the world once again if that's even possible. Regardless, the point is it's been a coming out party for both Adele and the Panthers, as both have re-established themselves as their respective industries standard.

With so much in common, theoretically, it makes perfect sense that Carolina players would lip-sync 'Hello' by Adele. It wasn't just your average lip-sync though. It was one filled with passion, emotion, and of course, comedy.

The Panthers lip-synced to Adele's new song "Hello" and it's fantastic. (via @jonathanstewar1)

Don't wipe away the tears caused by that performance, embrace them, own them.

You want sauce? We'll give you sauce, sauce-r passes that is, and incredible roof to roof ones at that

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 8:59 PM

There's nothing, and we mean nothing, like a crisp, clean, saucer pass. It's something that every hockey player strives to perfect because it's such a lethal ability to have and it's jaw dropping when it's perfected.

We would bet that this guy has perfected the art of the 'Saucer Pass,' or at least the art of the saucer pass from one roof to another, and just so we're clear, do NOT try this at home or on your home.

Pure. Hot Sauce.

Jack, Matty D, and Norm Kelly showed off their moves and did the Hotline Bling dance on Drake Night

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 8:12 PM

Drake has not only inspired a city, a nation, and maybe an entire universe with his music, but he's also done it with his dance moves as well. You read that correctly, his dance moves, more specifically the ones from his music video for "Hotline Bling" have been imitated, duplicated, and made into more GIF's than we can count.

With Wednesday night being #DrakeNight at the ACC, it only made sense for there to be a Hotline Bling booth, which looked exactly like the one from the music video, so anyone could go and show off their best Drake moves, and when we say anyone, we mean anyone, including Jack Armstrong, Matt Devlin, and even Norm Kelly.

So maybe Jack, Matty D, and Norm are better off not doing that again...but they weren't bad at all! They had fun which was the most important part. These people at the game also had a great time doing the dance.

The best answers from Daniel Negreanu's Reddit AMA

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 7:03 PM

Everyone, at one point or another in their lifetime, has probably watched poker on TV and thought to themselves, "This is so easy, one day I'm going to become a professional poker player."

Of course, then you tell your parents or significant other about this dream and it gets flushed down the drain before you even get a chance to pursue it.

For Canada's very own Poker Legend, Daniel Negreanu, he saw the game of poker all the way through and became what a lot of people aspire to be.

Negreanu's a two time World Poker Tour Champion, six time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, and he was nice enough to take the time to do an awesome Reddit AMA while he was here promoting his documentary about his life and career called, "KidPoker," which will air for the first time on December 1st at 8:30pm ET, on TSN4.

Here are the best questions and Negreanu's best answers from the AMA.

This guy getting knocked out by a vicious tornado kick is a must watch

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 5:51 PM

Nothing beats a good ol’ fashioned knock out. Well, almost nothing. We say that because this knockout by Taekwondo fighter, Gus Villa is pretty wicked and there is nothing “ol’ fashioned” about it.

That is called a tornado kick. Pretty devastating... Wouldn’t you agree?

Cam Newton chirps sideline official who looks like he's 12-years old, plus more soundbites

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 3:10 PM

Cam Newton is in the midst of a tremendous season. So far, he has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week twice, ranks third in the league in rushing touchdowns and oh yeah, his team is sitting pretty at 10-0. That must be why “Superman” is having such a good time on the sideline nowadays.

Here is just a little taste of what is going on when Cam isn’t on the field.

Basketball fan pours beer all over a player in Australia

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 2:32 PM

The only thing that is better than being at a sporting event is sitting front-row at a sporting event. You get the best view in the house and (usually) you get all your food and drink delivered to you throughout the night. You run into problems when you start doing things like this with said food and drink though.

In the middle of an NBL (that’s not a typo) game from Australia this Wednesday, one fan made the interesting decision to share some of his beer with Sydney Kings guard Marcus Thornton. Sounds like a nice gesture, but he couldn’t have done it at a worse time.

Take a closer look at the OVO/Raptors collection from Mitchell and Ness

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 2:49 PM

There may not be a municipal holiday celebrating Torontonian pride, but if there was one, it would probably closely resemble the event that the Toronto Raptors put on for Drake Night. On Wednesday, for the third consecutive year, basketball fans will travel in droves to the ACC to celebrate two of Toronto’s most beloved acts; the Raptors and Drake.

Much like during the playoffs, each and every fan will find a special edition OVO shirt (and headband) waiting for them on their seat, so that they make look the part for Drake Night. But for those who are looking to show their support for Drake and the Raps in a more extravagant manor, Mitchell and Ness has released the second installment of their 6ixside-inspired collaboration.

Kevin Hayes and Keith Yandle faceoff in a game of PUCK

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 25, 2015 1:55 PM

When you think back to recess at school or hot summer days at the basketball court, you think of the game H-O-R-S-E and trying to pull off progressively more and more ridiculous shots than your buddies. Kevin Hayes and Keith Yandle harnessed their inner child and squared off in hockey’s version of H-O-R-S-E (the aptly named P-U-C-K) at the New York Knicks practice facility.
