Claymation Beast Mode

By BarDown Jan. 31, 2015 10:01 PM
The coolest Instagram post we've seen in a long time has emerged from user azxd of an amazing claymation Marshawn Lynch slashing through defenders. The video features Beast Mode bowling over rising zombie opponents on his way to a crotch grab celebrated touchdown.

If this doesn't get you pumped up for Sunday's Super Bowl, we don't know what will!


Marshawnisms: Outtakes from Lynch and Gronk on Conan

By BarDown Jan. 31, 2015 8:55 PM
Friday on BarDown we had a video of Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski playing Mortal Kombat with Conan O'Brien, and Saturday we've come across a video called "Marshawnisms: Beast Mode Speaks." The video is essentially outtakes from the footage cut for the amazing original Mortal Kombat showdown.

(Warning: The video is NSFW)



We hope Conan has even more outtake footage, because we could listen to Lynch all day!

Bruins sport Patriots toques during pre-game warmups

By BarDown Jan. 31, 2015 8:35 PM
Before the New England Patriots left for Glendale, Arizona where they will be taking part in Super Bowl XLIX this Sunday, they left their hockey playing friends, the Boston Bruins, a gift to inspire them for their game: #DoYourJob toques!

Thanks for the gifts, @patriots ! #DoYourJob

The Bruins decided to rock the toques during warmups before their game against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.




Raining Pabst Blue Ribbon after Molinari's hole-in-one

By BarDown Jan. 31, 2015 7:39 PM
What happens when busloads of football fans getting set for Super Bowl XLIX head from Glendale, Arizona to Scottsdale, Arizona to tailgate a day before the game at the 2015 Phoenix Open? A pretty wild golf crowd!

With the cities only half an hour apart, many football fans who made the trip to Phoenix for the Super Bowl decided to check out a little golf before heading back to University of Phoenix Stadium for the game. Many Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and other football jerseys were seen in the crowd, but it wasn't until Francesco Molinari stepped up to the tee on No. 16 that you could tell the crowd was a bit rowdier than your average golf audience.

Molinari hit a dart onto the green, and the ball slowly trickled in for a brilliant hole-in-one, but what was even more entertaining was the crowd's reaction to the shot.



Fans all around the green tossed their cups onto the course in celebration of the shot!



Our own James Duthie was at the event, and may or may not have been heckling Graham DeLaet.



And Duthie can confirm, the tournament was a gong show.



Check out this interesting stat, featuring the man who shot a career-worst round 11-over-par 82 and missed the cut yesterday.

Seattle vs. New England: The everything but football bowl

By Danny Wright (@dannnywright) Jan. 31, 2015 5:52 PM
With Super Bowl XLIX at the University of Phoenix Stadium quickly approaching and set for this Sunday, the world is speculating on whether the New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks will emerge from the game victorious. The line on the game itself is wavering, and it seems too tight for us to make a prediction on just yet. So rather than make an educated prophecy of who will take home the games biggest prize, we’ve decided to pit the New England and Seattle areas up against each other using things each are most famous for.

Celebrities

Actors from the New England area

There are many actors who loudly support the Red Sox and Patriots, but which celebrities are actually from the New England area? To name a few of the biggest…

Mark Wahlberg

Wahlberg is probably the most well known Patriots fan from the Boston area, and consistently represents the team wherever he goes, including games at Gillette.

The Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will even appear next to Wahlberg in the sequel to Seth MacFarlane’s Ted movie, Ted 2.



And who could forget the infamous moment when Wahlberg left Patriots owner Robert Kraft hanging after a touchdown.

The Academy Award winning actor was born in Massachusetts and has pledged his allegiance to the Patriots on many occasions.




Hey! Being the mop-guy at basketball games is a tough job, okay!

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Jan. 31, 2015 3:17 PM
As For The Win points out, being the mop-guy is an underrated tough job in sports. I mean, you gotta know when to hop on and off the playing surface during the game, always keeping an eye on a turnover to send the break your way. This guy at the Kent State-Buffalo game had one of those moments and will forever be remembered for this and not for how dry he makes the paint.



Poor guy's face though...



Poor mop guys man, so under appreciated...

Absolute man-brawl from the goon hockey league of the world, the LNAH

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Jan. 31, 2015 3:04 PM
This fight isn't for the faint of heart. We got two pretty tough customers here as Gabriel Boutin-Gagnon of the Trois-Rivieres Blizzard CNS and Dave Hamel of the Riviere-du-Loup 3L going at it with all kinds of haymakers being thrown.

Also, HUGE kudos to the in-arena guy for pumping "the beats" during the fight.



Couple other of our favourites from the LNAH...






Blackhawks forward Bickell surprises young boy on backyard rink

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Jan. 31, 2015 3:02 PM
Chicago Blackhawks LW Bryan Bickell surprised young Ryan, who's dream is to make it to the NHL much like Bickell, at his backyard rink. The look on Ryan's face when realizing who this random guy that just walked into his backyard with a pair of skate was is awesome.

Bickell shows Ryan some little tricks and then they head in for some hot chocolate, the best post backyard rink skate.



The last #WhatsYourGoal video by the Chicago Blackhawks was when Patrick Sharp helped fulfill Christina's goal of finally getting to experience a game at the United Centre.




Key & Peele spoof a press conference featuring Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch

By BarDown Staff (@BarDown) Jan. 31, 2015 12:33 PM
Key and Peele are at again with another hilarious Super Bowl sketch that they released on Friday. This one pokes fun at Seattle Seahawks teammates Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch, probably two of the most entertaining athletes in sports today in terms of media moments.

Watch as Sherman goes nuts and Marshawn still doesn't want any part of the media.



And in case you missed it, Key and Peele got real NFL stars to be in their East/West Bowl player introductions feature.
