Jimmie Johnson and his crew get into the Harlem Shake craze after his Daytona 500 win

Lookie here!  We’ve got another Harlem Shake video on our hands.  This time it’s from Daytona 500 winner Jimmie Johnson.  This one is is actually pretty good.  We’re loving the fact that it was done at 11pm after Johnson won the Daytona 500.  The only person who saw this video being made was Nate Ryan with USA Today.

From his days at St. Vincent/St. Mary’s all the way up until now, we have seen LeBron throw down some pretty insane dunks, but this one is the best if you ask me. Enjoy!

I was on the Twitters earlier, came across this beauty, and wanted to share it with all of you. They say “A picture is worth a thousand words,” but man, this one has me speechless.

Ned Stark NFL combine

The coverage surrounding the NFL combine this year has become as out of control as JaMarcus Russel’s waist line. I don’t even NFL beat writers on Twitter, but TSB’s time line was flooded over the weekend with RT’s of prospect’s 40-yard dash times.   To be honest, I’m not really that impressed with a 300 lb lineman running a 4.65 40-yard dash.  How much does LeBron weigh these days?  275?  285?  And he probably runs a 4.3 40.

What did impress me this weekend was the fun that TSB follower @TheHappyRecap had with the combine insanity: Read the rest of this entry »

It’s always a good idea to have the guy with one arm leading the charge in a possible gun battle

As a reminder…from here on out, we’re going to do things a little different here at TSB when it comes to AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Instead of an all-out recap, we’re gonna give you our reaction to each week’s episode and the Kill Count.  (**SPOILER ALERT** Although we won’t go through the episode step by step, this article will contain spoilers) Read the rest of this entry »

Dontrelle Willis delivers against the Atlanta Braves

Follow @DSchmelzerTSB on Twitter

When closer Tom Gordon got injured right before the season started in 2002, the Chicago Cubs got desperate for a replacement. They made a trade with the Florida Marlins for their closer Antonio Alfonseca and Starting Pitcher Matt Clement. Going to the Marlins, as a throw in, in that deal, was Dontrelle Willis. Now, in Spring Training 2013, Willis is back with the Cubs, as a non roster invitee, and looking to resurrect his career. Read the rest of this entry »

50 Cent kisses Erin Andrews in quite possibly, the most awkward moment in NASCAR history

50 Cent kisses Erin Andrews in quite possibly, the most awkward moment in NASCAR history

I guess Erin Andrews isn’t a fan of 50 Cent’s “Magic Stick.”

Andrews, who was working pit road for Fox, was searching for Danica Patrick prior to the start of Sunday’s 55th Daytona 500, when she was encountered by 50 Cent.  50 then awkwardly tried to plant a kiss on her lips as you can see from the gif after the jumpRead the rest of this entry »

In this edition of Promising Prospects, I will profile Wil Myers of the Tampa Bay Rays, Billy Hamilton of the Cincinnati Reds, and Edward Salcedo of the Atlanta Braves. All three of these guys have unlimited potential in their own different ways, but as we know in the prospect game, anything can happen on the road to Major League Baseball.

It’s the best place any driver could be in on Sunday afternoon, out front, and in the final lap of the Daytona 500 on Sunday afternoon, Jimmie Johnson let everyone else fight for position as he pulled away for his second victory in the Great American Race.

Johnson, was was making his 400th career start in the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet, became the 10th driver in history to win multiple Daytona 500s.

He led the final 10 laps, including a wild final lap that had Dale Earnhardt, Jr. rally from fourth to second place and to finish just two car lengths behind his Hendrick Motorsports teammate.

“I had a lot of confidence leading the train,” Johnson said of taking the front position as the remaining cars raced around the 2.5-mile track, mostly in single file. “I knew I had a fast car.” Read the rest of this entry »

Juan Sandoval was just a regular minor leaguer with the Seattle Mariners, who had a dream to pitch in the big leagues. In 2005, at the age of 24, Sandoval had made it to AA and had seemed to be close to living his dream.
