For the huge fans of Chelsea in the United States, get ready because The Blues have friendlies against AC Milan, Real Madrid and Liverpool scheduled in America as part of the team's pre-season tour.

With that in mind, to get the players prepared for their trip to America, the team's Twitter account quizzed them on the country and Pedro, one of Chelsea's midfielders, failed said quiz in hilarious fashion, as he couldn't even give a guess from some of the questions.

Well, for those that said the Pokemon Go craze would end after a little while, that clearly isn't happening any time soon, especially when you consider the rumoured new update, which there is no exact date for, will add more new Pokemon and cool features to the app.

With that in mind, it's no wonder people like Zach Boychuk are doing things like this to change the way the world goes about finding and catching Pokemon.

Regardless of your opinion on wrestling and its status as a sport, that is not even close to what this post is about.

Rather than going down that road, we wanted to recognize two Canadian wrestlers, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, who, since being called up from NXT, have established themselves as two of the brightest stars in WWE, highlighted by what was a match of the year candidate at Battleground Sunday night that seemingly brought an end to their feud.

Drake isn't one to hide his fandom for a team, whether that team be the Toronto Raptors or the Kentucky Wildcats.

That being said, after this incident that occurred last year, Drizzy should be a little more careful so he doesn't get his beloved Wildcats into trouble with the NCAA.

In May of 2015, then Kentucky point guard, Tyler Ulis, posted this picture with Drake at an after-party after one of Drizzy's shows.

Texas Rangers prospect throws glove at opponent after starting bench clearing brawl

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Jul. 25, 2016 8:24 AM


Baseball in the state of Texas this season can be defined by one word, fighting. We all remember Bautista versus Odor earlier in the season, and Sunday, the Rangers' Double-A affiliate followed suit with a brawl of their own.

In a game against Corpus Christi, Frisco RoughRiders pitcher Yohander Mendez nailed Danry Vasquez with a pitch and he immediately charged the mound, causing both benches to clear.




Jerome Bettis' golf swing might somehow be worse than Charles Barkley's

Stephen Curry and Justin Timberlake were just two of the many big names entertaining the masses at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship this weekend, and while Curry and JT's form of entertainment was with finger wags and dance moves, other celebs got the crowd got going with their golf skills.

What we mean by that is we honestly thought we would never see a golf swing worse than Charles Barkley's, but Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis is a worthy competitor with this swing he showcased all weekend long.




Steph Curry blocks Justin Timberlake and gives him Mutombo finger wag

Steph Curry may have only recorded 15 total blocks last season, but that doesn't mean that he can't protect the hoop.

Sunday, during the final round of the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship Tournament, Curry brought his basketball skills to the greens in Nevada. Justin Timberlake may have assumed that Curry would take it easy on him considering the singer doesn't play ball in the NBA, but if we've learned anything about the Chef, it's that he doesn't care who he's playing , he'll always be cooking.



Blocks are certainly not a part of Curry's game, but assists definitely are. Watch as Timberlake drains a shot from downtown after catching Curry's textbook chest pass.

"They don't want you to catch them all." No, that statement is just an example of what happens when you combine a new internet trend with an old one, it's also reflective of the attitudes of some coaches in the world of professional sports.

Pokemon Go may be an excellent source of entertainment, but reportedly to newly introduced Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, it's a distraction he can ill afford to have his players get hooked on.



This is all according to a source that spoke to the Daily Star, stating that Mourinho would like for his players to stay away from the addictive game before matchday.


DeAndre Jordan dribbles ball off his foot and into ref's groin

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Jul. 24, 2016 9:38 PM


DeAndre Jordan may be a vital part of the Los Angeles Clippers, but that has absolutely nothing to do with his ability to dribble a basketball.

Sunday, during Team USA's exhibition game versus China, Jordan caught a ball out of midair and proceeded to dribble it off of his own foot and into a nearby referee's groin region.



Not exactly And 1 mixtape stuff, but certainly memorable enough to be included on a top 10 list for years to come. Jordan may have been helped out by the NBA's recent rule change on the 'Hack-A-Shaq' tactic, but there's no rule change that will help him prevent moments like that.
