A quick google search of the Mountain from 'Game of Thrones' will surely reveal his well documented feats of unbelievable strength. He, not Mark Henry, is the World's Strongest Man, and once again, in case some people doubted this fact in the slightest, he reminded us of that fact. On Saturday in Sweden, the Mountain tried to break the keg toss world record. The keg weighed in at 33-pounds, but it was no match for the Mountain as he tossed it 7.05 meters, which translates to just over 23 feet. Can this guy compete in the MMA or something, we feel like it would be just as fun to watch people try and fight him as it is watching him defy barriers of strength on a consistent basis.

Friday's edition of Cabbie Presents featured Henry Burris of the Ottawa Redblacks, one of the two quarterbacks who will try and lead his team to a Grey Cup win on Sunday. The other signal caller in that equation is the Eskimos' Mike Reilly, who's featured in the newest edition of Cabbie Presents. With the Grey Cup being in Winnipeg this season, Reilly and Cabbie discuss Mike's immunity to cold weather, his Sparta-like beard, and Cabbie names him, 'King of the North.'

In a recent KHL game between SKA (Saint Petersburg) and Lada (Togliatti), it was a back and forth defensive battle between the two teams. With the game still fairly fresh, Lada broke in on a two-on-one. Just as it seemed as if they were going to score, SKA goaltender Mikko Koskinen stretched out and made an unbelievable save on Tobias Viklund.
Southern Miss WR Mike Thomas does his best Odell Beckham Jr impression with amazing one-handed TD grabBy BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Nov. 28, 2015 2:46 PM
Today, the Southern Miss Golden Eagles are battling it out with the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. With the Golden Eagles already up 14-3 early in the second quarter, they added to their lead with one of the sweetest touchdowns you will ever see. That was wide receiver Mike Thomas doing his best Odell Beckham Jr. impression, and he nailed it. What a catch. (H/T ESPN)

Something unexpected happened when the Seattle Thunderbirds were playing the Vancouver Giants at the ShoWare Center on Friday; the lights went out. However, we know that hockey players will play through just about anything, so the fans decided to give them some light via their cell phones, hoping the show would go on.

The Rockford IceHogs hosted the Chicago Wolves and Friday, and with Christmas less than a month away, you can tell that the IceHogs are already getting into the holiday spirit. Just check out the jerseys they wore.

We always hear stories about teams being sabotaged when they’re on the road, especially when there’s an important game on the line. Fire alarms go off throughout the night in their hotel, they don’t get the proper treatment, etc. There’s now a new one we can add to that list. Locking teams out of their hotel rooms. The team arrived at their hotel Friday night, but none of the players could get into their rooms because the cards weren’t working. It’s extra rough because they have an early start on Saturday. After Ohio Governor John Kasich encouraged fans to avoid using the letter ‘M’ and wearing pleated khakis on game day, Michigan supporters needed a way to get in a shot of their own and get a little payback.

When you see a punter drop the ball once it’s snapped to him, the first thing you think about if you’re a fan of the opposing team is the great field position you’re about to have because of the error. That is unless you’re playing against Ethan Perry of TCU.

It’s very rare that you hear about LeBron James getting fooled on a crossover. Well, there’s a first for everything. Here it is.
