There’s no doubt that GoPro cameras are amazing. But what if you’re all alone and want some sweet footage of yourself that isn’t POV? Well, you can do what Nicholas Vuignier did and tie your phone to a piece of string and get footage of your shots that way.

Charles Barkley lets it all out when it comes to his opinions. He’s not shy to say what he means, or even trying to say what he means. With that being said, Barkley wants you to know why Leonardo DiCaprio will not and should not win an Oscar for Best Actor for his role in The Revenant.

Watch as Ray Bourque and Grant Fuhr play with fans on Toronto's rooftop rink

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Feb. 5, 2016 6:26 PM

Early in January, puck fans across the country were enamored with the mysterious image of a hockey rink built on top of a highrise building in downtown Toronto. While the project wasn't exactly shrouded in mystery, as commercials featuring the rink could be seen on television, but two questions were raised in every hockey fan's mind...what's it like to play on a highrise and how do I get up there?

While it's a little too late to get the chance to actually play on the rink, you can still get a pretty good feeling for what it was like to be up there by watching Molson's official #AnythingForHockey trailer.

TSN was luck enough to make the trip up to the rink and play a game of pick-up hockey. Why should that matter to you? Because we brought our GoPros up there with us! So stayed tuned for a first person perspective of what it's like to play hockey thousands of feet above the streets of downtown Toronto.

Super Bowl 50 is a couple days away and this is the time of the year where just about anyone and everyone becomes a football expert. DJ Khaled isn’t a fairweather fan when it comes to sports, but he certainly isn’t a football analyst. Analyst or not, it doesn’t mean he can’t tell you why he believes the Carolina Panthers will win it all. Here are his three major keys to winning the Super Bowl.

A rookie Steph Curry talked smack to Kobe, and got something scary in return

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Feb. 5, 2016 4:32 PM

When Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry was a young pup in the NBA, he wasn't as feared as he is today, if he was even feared in the slightest. He was a scrawny, little man who was trying to make his presence known in the league.

When the Warriors were playing the Los Angeles Lakers, Curry decided he would throw a bit of a lame chirp Kobe Bryant's way to see if it could get under the superstars skin. At that point in Kobe's career, he had heard it all, and the Black Mamba was not taking no chirps from anybody.

The following excerpt is from Clay Skipper's interview with Curry in GQ.

This is the Kobe death stare Curry is speaking of, in case you've never seen it.

Watch this gigantic youth player plow through a group of average-sized kids

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Feb. 5, 2016 4:25 PM

If you've ever played playground sports, you know how the deal works. The team who lands the biggest kid automatically wins, because no one can take down the force of nature that is the biggest kid in school.

Take for example this gigantic kid plowing through average-sized kids in a U14 rugby game.

Remember kids...if you stand in the way of the biggest kid on the playground, you're gonna get truck sticked, and you're gonna get turned into a GIF like this on the internet.

Commissioner Roger Goodell dabbed, and dabbing in the NFL is officially dead

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Feb. 5, 2016 12:56 PM

What is the worst jinx the Carolina Panthers could face going into Super Bowl 50? Quarterback Cam Newton being featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated? One of their players slipping during media coverage leading up to the game and guaranteeing a Carolina win? Nope... the worst jinx the Panthers could receiving going into the game is NFL commissioner Roger Goodell performing "the dab," a dance move Newton and the Panthers have made their own over the course of the season.

And the worst has indeed occurred, as Goodell ruined the fun-loving dance move for everyone by dabbing on Good Morning America.

Rest in peace, the dab... you will be missed.


This funny PSA reminds football fans that kickers are people too

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Feb. 5, 2016 12:07 PM

If you asked football fans in cities like Buffalo, Cleveland and Minnesota to name the first thing that comes to mind when you say the word 'kicker,' you're likely to receive a laundry list worth of agonizingly sad adjectives.

But football fans get so caught up in the emotions that come with a crucial missed field goal that they forget that kickers are people, too. That's why the folks over at Rooster Teeth have created a PSA that helps shed a light on the epidemic that is berating kickers...sort of.

(Warning NSFW: Language)

Some how we don't think this will do much in repairing the kicker-fan relationship in any of the cities mentioned in the clip. You've got to think that when someone goes so far as to create a jersey about a missed kick, that they're really not that interested in the practice of forgiving and forgetting.
