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

World Cup 2018 groups: Guide to the group stage games and latest analysis

quote [ The wait for the 2018 FIFA World Cup is very nearly at an end, the talking has pretty much stopped and we're only a few days away from the first match of this summer's highly-anticipated tournament. ]

Any SEers excited for the World Cup this summer? During the last two held I was out hitchhiking and didn't get to see any games save for the 2010 final and semifinals. 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.

The Mobster Who Bought His Son a Hockey Team

quote [ ?It happened at dinner. My father said, out of nowhere, ?If I ever buy a hockey team, you?re going to run it.? I was like, ?Yeah, sure.? Then, two days later, he said, ?Okay, I bought the team.??? True to his word, Galante made his son the team?s general manager. ]

Mobster buys hockey team for his teenage son, stocks the roster with goons who beat up the other teams on the ice, team goes to the playoffs - the movie script writes itself...

Norovirus Spreads at Olympics: Now 128 Confirmed Cases

quote [ They sprang up like mushrooms atop almost every table, countertop and reasonably flat surface at the Olympic venues on Thursday afternoon: freshly unpacked bottles of hand sanitizer.

Lots of them.

By Thursday night, 42 more cases of norovirus were confirmed around the sites of the 2018 Winter Olympics, bringing the official tally of cases this week to 128. A mere 24 hours before the opening ceremony of the Games, the outbreak has threatened to undermine an otherwise watertight start to the global sports event. ]

Uh - yeah. The olympic village is a massive fuckfest with young hard bodied athletes crammed together with nothing else to do between events. Don't think the hand sanitizer it gonna quite cut it there.

Full in extended.

Donating $17 is a small personal commitment, but can make a significant impact

quote [ Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton, on fourth down and 12 yards to go, with only 53 seconds remaining, threw an improbable 49-yard touchdown pass to win the game ? knocking Baltimore out of the playoffs and letting Buffalo in the back door.
Dalton immediately became a Buffalo hero, inspiring its fanatics to donate to the Cincinnati QB?s charity, which provides funding and experiences for seriously ill children and their families in Ohio and Texas.
Dalton reported that by Tuesday evening, 7,000 people had donated more than $170,000 to his foundation ]

A good news story for 2018
