Forget the World Cup, Let?s Play Motor-Ball!

quote [ Not to rag on the World Cup or anything, but why run after a football when you can just drive towards it on a motorbike? Well that?s the spirit of Motor-ball, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. All you need to play is 1) a huge inflatable ball, 2) a bike of some kind, and 3) the need for speed? and maybe 4) a death wish. ]

Well I'm having a ball
I've got my motor running

This time around I want to catch as many as I can. My next podcast will be recorded during the first game, Russia vs. Saudi Arabia, in the early morning hours of June 14th.

Veteran Fighter Leslie Smith Says UFC Cut Her Because Of Her Union Organizing Efforts

quote [ Pro MMA veteran Leslie Smith was supposed to fight on last weekend?s UFC Fight Night card, but her bout with Aspen Ladd was scrapped under strange circumstances. Ladd weighed in 1.8 pounds over the limit, claiming that ?certain female circumstances? kept her from being able to cut weight. Smith initially okayed the catchweight fight on the condition that the UFC extend her expiring contract, but the UFC instead paid Smith her show money and win bonus for the fight, thus ending her UFC career. ]

I was surprised to learn they didn't already have a union. Leslie has a gofundme up for her legal defense.
