Hockey Wisemen: Black or White Tape?

Panthers seeking a "Non-traveling Jagr" and hosting a Mullet Night

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 4:28 PM


All Jaromir Jagr aficionados are familiar with the legendary “Travelling Jagrs” who appear at games rocking amazing mullets partnered with Jagr jerseys representing all the NHL teams he has represented. Well, now that Jagr is on the Florida Panthers, his 8th NHL team, that means there has to be an 8th member of the Travelling Jagrs. The Panthers have decided to help that process along by running a Mullet Night promotion, in which they’re looking to add a non-traveling Jagr, who will represent the Traveling Jagrs at Panthers home games.

The Panthers have even gone as far as laying out some hilarious job requirements and responsibilities that this non-travelling Jagr will have to fulfill.


This video of Rob Gronkowski "Gronking" miscellaneous items is amazing

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 3:42 PM


New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has branded himself as the top ball spiker in all of professional sports. But the trouble is Gronk is limited to "Gronking" footballs when on the gridiron, and we've already seen plenty of that.

Now, thanks to this clip shot by Omaze -- promoting a contest to party on a bus with the Gronk -- we now get to see the tight end smash miscellaneous items into the ground in what may be one of the greatest commercials ever.



We get wanting to see the Gronk smash pumpkin and we definitely understand wanting to see him break a guitar, but a Lionel Richie record? We've just got to let you know, Gronk...that's unacceptable. Like, hello?


Watch soccer superstar Gareth Bale crush a half-court shot challenge

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 1:45 PM


Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has had a bit of a rocky season in the Spanish capital this year, primarily due to a dip in form. But put Bale on a basketball court instead of a soccer pitch and suddenly the Welshman seems to feel right at home.

During a shoot for NBA UK, Bale was tasked with attempting five half-court shots to see how many he could get in.



Bale impressively nailed three shots out of the five, putting him at the top of the leaderboard of other soccer players who have previously taken the challenge.

Considering how much Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo seem to compete with one another on the field, it's only fitting that we see CR7 attempt the half-court challenge next.

Absolutely insane first pitch fireball from Korean baseball!

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 1:43 PM


I don’t care what first pitch you think is the best first pitch ever because it doesn’t even come close to how awesome this one is. The KT Wiz of the Korean Baseball Organization decided to open up their season with a flaming ball of fire. And that is not a metaphor, they actually opened up their season with a flaming ball of fire that launched from their scoreboard in right-centre field! The fireball represented the first pitch of the season and they had their mascot helplessly standing at home plate trying to hit the thing, scratch that, not get hit by the thing.



Jerry Lee Lewis would be proud.




The world's laziest dog walker will have you feeling some type of way

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 12:33 PM
It's pretty simple -- if you don't like walking, you probably shouldn't get a dog. The most common method of circumventing the responsibilities of walking a dog is to simply open the back door and let the pooch run around. Lazy? Yes. Laziest? Not by a long shot.

Why walk your dog when you could simply toss the leash out of a van window and ride along down the street with the canine.

The owner in this video may want to consider seeking out the breeders who sold this dog instead. Zero barks given.

Guy who did wrestling moves on girlfriend gets put in his place by Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 12:33 PM


Joe Weller became internet famous recently by doing wrestling finishing moves on his girlfriend into a pool. Weller’s technique was on point and his girlfriend sure knew how to take a bump, which made for some pretty awesome internet entertainment. Weller’s antics went so viral that it caught the attention of the WWE, and more specifically, Paul Heyman. Heyman is apparently upset that Weller is using his client, Brock Lesner’s finishing move without permission.

Heyman gets some help from Madusa to teach Weller a lesson and then gets a stern talking to from now former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.

And here’s the original video that got him famous if you haven’t seen it yet.

Shaq rips on Chris Paul and the Lakers at Bieber roast

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 12:02 PM
Shaquille O'Neal was on the Roast of Justin Bieber and did his best at poking fun of the Lakers and Chris Paul who was in attendance. But like all roasts, everyone maintained a good sense of humour and Chris Paul had a pretty good chuckle.


Hockey heckler gets hilarious remix...of course

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Mar. 31, 2015 11:56 AM


Monday, the internet was granted a gift in the form of an all-time classic local news interview. Cory Simms may just be a "heckler," but he's now known continent wide for his preferred pastime of trash talking.

The natural progression for these types of videos on the internet is for them to be remixed, breathing new life into the clip in the form of a song. Get ready for the viral video remix that may very well end up being the most popular anthem of the spring.



No word yet on whether or not it'll get an an official "songify this" remix, but at this point we may be getting a little greedy considering how lucky we were to be graced with the original video.

Here's to hoping that the self-claimed "heckler" sees a remix as heavy as everyone's favourite burger reviewer.
