Let’s be honest, you’ve always wondered what it would look like if all your favourite team’s logos merged into one beautiful inter-sport conglomerate. Well now you get that opportunity, however, five years after they were designed. That’s right, these gorgeous designs were posted to some sports thread about five years ago and have just been sitting there in obscurity ever since. They were originally designed by Dennis Fanning and are currently making their waves around the internet quite rapidly. Enjoy! (H/T Bro Bible)

MLB)Hey Blue Jays fans, remember Noah Syndergaard? One of the stud young pitching prospects you traded as part of the R.A. Dickey deal to the Mets? Well, he’s turning out to be quite the decent young pitcher in the Majors so far having a 1-2 record with a 3.63 ERA. And on Wednesday afternoon he showed the league that he’s got some pop in his bat as well, cranking his first career homer and becoming the first Mets pitcher in three years to hit one out of the park. Jays fans couldn’t have enjoyed watching this one. (H/T

What else would the University of Oklahoma golf team do in their spare time except for play more golf? These college kids aren't just highly talented at the traditional game but can also impress at the trick shot game. So crank up the Black Eyed Peas and enjoy these ridiculous shots. The celebrations of pure happiness make the video even better: If you're a fan of golf trick shots then you'll definitely enjoy these classics fromLegendary Shots andDude Perfect: (h/t For The Win)

There’s two reasons that you’re here right now. Either you love The Rock or you love rugby and whichever side of the fence you sit on, you’re going to be very satisfied with this video. As a hype up for the 2015 State of Origin series, which is an annual best-of-three series between Queensland and New South Wales played under ‘state of origin’ rules. This means that both teams are made up of only players who were born in each team’s territory or played the majority of their senior seasons there. Very cool concept that we wouldn’t mind seeing tested out on this side of the Ocean. But let’s be honest, there’s only one thing the end of this promo was missing…

It's Wednesday and you know what that means...it's time for Tiddlywinks & PlayStation! This week the undefeated SternMan faces-ff against a worthy opponent, @RichardHead93. The stakes? glory for Richard, a summertime worth of jabs and no more NHL15 for SternMan.

Youtube table tennis tricksters Editing Sports are back with a new experiment that showcases a rare combination of ping pong and skating. Only in Finland would you see people try to pull something like this off. The skating aspect seems to make it a lot more difficult to hit the ball but a thousand times more fun. Take a look: Here is one of their more popular trick shot videos: Special thanks to Emil for sending us the video via email. If you have a hot video tip that you think would be good for BarDown, shoot us an email at BarDown@bellmedia.ca or tweet us @BarDown.

After the Cleveland Cavaliers completed their dismantling of the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, the team celebrated the only way a team can… With a hot tub dance party. To be honest though, if anyone deserves to chill in a hot tub and sip on some champagne it’s LeBron James. The King put together one of the most spectacular playoff performances anyone’s ever seen, as he averaged 30.3 points, 11 rebounds and 9.3 assists during the Eastern Conference Finals series. Whoever ends up facing the Cavs in the Finals though, will have their hands full to say the least. But seriously, look at the flick of the wrist…

If you've been on Instagram recently, you've probably seen a steady influx of one-handed backflip catch videos being posted all over the place. We'll be the first to admit that seeing the feat done repeatedly has taken away much of the magic, but we think we've got a clip that will restore your love in back flip catches. North Carolina A & T running back Tarik Cohen has a number of impressive catches on his Instagram account, but none more absurd than this clip of the sophmore doing a back flip and catching two balls at the same time. (NSFW: Language)
Tarik Cohen called game on the 'backflip catch' craze.

Whether you're a fan of fishing or not you should still be able to appreciate what Jon Black accomplished in Florida with nothing but a kayak and a fishing rod. The fisherman caught a 552 pound grouper that is "big enough to swallow a bear". To make it even more exciting, Black lets out a bunch of high-pitched screams that are probably a combination of exhilaration and fear: This is actually the record for the largest grouper ever caught in a kayak, while the largest grouper ever caught in a boat was 680 pounds. If you're a fan of large creatures being caught in kayaks then here is a man catching an octopus from his kayak: (h/t BroBible)
