Stay at Home Dad vs. the PE Teacher (VIDEO)

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Are you ever annoyed by the political correctness of today’s daily gym class? Dodgeball is out, because it’s too dangerous or too mean or too something. Hell, much of the time, there isn’t a gym class to complain about at all, because schools are getting rid of them.

This kind of stuff seems to really annoy Stay at Home Dad.

And he shows you why in the video below when he has a meeting with his kid’s P.E. teacher because the kid is being too aggressive with the other students (“That’s awesome,” the SAHD said.).

Check out the video below, as the SAHD tries to figure out why the P.E. teacher* has such a problem with his son who happens to hit people in the face with his right hand (“His left hand is for s***,” the SAHD says matter-of-factly).

*You might know him better as Mike Yanagita from Fargo.

Plus, if you love Smear the Queer references, this video is for you.

Argentine futbol fans can riot with best of 'em

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

In case you were wondering how the Argentine fans would react if River Plate, the most successful franchise in Argentina’s club soccer history, was relegated to a lower-level league, we have our answer.

Hint: it does not go over well.

According to The Independent newspaper, 25 police officers had to be hospitalized after fans rioted following the team’s first relegation in its 110-year history.

From the story:

Police deployed water canons in an attempt to cool things off but with 60,000 disgruntled supporters spilling onto the streets they found themselves overmatched.

Fans demonstrated their displeasure by throwing punches, kicks, iron bars, dustbins, bicycles and anything else close by at the police. Other sections of supporters took out their anger on local businesses and residents as they looted shops and torched cars.

When order was eventually restored it was more by coincidence than design that there had been no fatalities. One police officer was airlifted from the scene with a head wound to join his colleagues in hospital while 40 fans suffered injuries and 50 arrests were made.


A few years back, my wife and I attended a match at River Plate’s stadium in Buenos Aires to watch a World Cup qualifier between Argentina and Paraguay. It was an intense fan experience. The Paraguayan fans were kept sheltered from the Argentines – almost herded into their own sections like cattle, behind tall fences – and police officers kept them from leaving after the match until Argentina’s supporters had left the stadium.

There were no riots that day, but there were moments during the match (a draw between the two squads) when you could feel that somehow it could be possible.

It’s unfortunate the other day that it actually happened.

VIDEO: Four-foot shark spins over surfer

Posted by Will Brinson

Jacob Langston, a photographer for the Orlando Sentinel, headed out to New Smyrna Beach in Florida to do some video shots for a couple of surfers.

And, as you'll see below, he got a little more than he bargained for, as he actually caught a four-foot spinner shark flying over top of one surfer's head.



As someone who counts scuba diving as a recreational activity, I've seen my fair share of sharks in the ocean. This does not make me any less scared of them.

Or any less likely to pee my pants in the event that a four-foot shark went spinning over my head while I was surfing. Via The Big Lead.
