Dude hooks up a disabled young fan with not only an autograph, but his hat, his jersey and his freaking shoes!Pretty unreal… There are a million signed baseballs in the world but some players wear the same hat for several seasons and cleats take time to break in… Not to mention a game-worn jersey! Definitely above and beyond by Kemp. Its amazing what a small gesture by a professional athlete can do to change someones life.
It’s actually insane to conceptualize. I think about the best player I know in my pick up games, who’s incredible and has such an insane shot, but he isn’t even the best on the school team. Which isn’t even the best in our conference. Which is nowhere near the best in our region. Which is nowhere near the best in the nation, and that’s not even counting academy teams/club teams. And our nation (usa) is nowhere near the best in the world.
The BEST player we have ever produced is Clint Dempsey–think about that, of all these teams and leagues, he is the very best we have. And how insane is Clint Dempsey’s shot when you’re not just watching on your television? And I’m not bashing Clint Dempsey, it’s just on the world stage he’s nowhere near the best, but when you conceptualize it like I just did, he must be absolutely insane, but the level of competition in the world is just even better. We constantly criticize certain defensemen, but think of the insane level of ability to be able to maintain a place in the EPL or la liga. Same goes for attackers. Just crazy to think about. I think about what a challenge it will be to face a certain team in our conference who’s undefeated, and then I realize how crazy it must be to look at your schedule and see FC Barcelona.
Some awesome dude secretly filmed his friend, his friend’s brothers, and his friend’s dad watching football every Sunday for the entire 2012-2013 NFL season and compiled all the best bits into this hilarious and glorious video. Favorite part of the video was the old man unleashing his arsenal of hate and spew. Profanity is an art, no doubt about it. Anybody can say vulgar words, but it takes an artist to do what that guy did with those words.
For all you WWE folks who were wondering what happened to Bautista, wonder no longer. He has been training MMA for the last couple years, which has culminated in his first real fight against Vince Lucero. And having viewed the fight, you can come to the conclusion that he should stick to professional wrestling. He won the fight, however his standup is seriously lacking. In outfits like Strikeforce or UFC, he would be slaughtered like a sheep sent to a pack of wolves. Props to him for trying something new though.
If you were wondering how 78 percent of NFL players go broke within five years of retirement, this documentary breaks it down awesomely.
