 Major League Dreidel
Major League Dreidel
At long last, the Hanukkah dreidel is getting the respect it deserves. The four-sided, Hebrew-letter-covered spinning top typically plays a minor role in the annual Festival of Light, but a Brooklyn bar owner wants to change all that through Major League Dreidel, the first “professional” sports “league” for the nation’s top dreidelers. Oh, and you can get your very... read full post picked by suebe 11 months ago

 Running Shoes are a waste of money
Running Shoes are a waste of money
This is an old article (and a similar one to Bingo's post), but I've recently discovered barefoot running and am very interested.

I'm fascinated by this statement: "For the fun of it. One of [Tarahumara Indians] recently came first in a prestigious 100-mile race wearing nothing but a toga and sandals. He was 57 years old."

A 10-foot Great White Shark had been hooked already by a baited drum line off the coast of Queensland, Australia when it was attacked and bitten by a much bigger fish. Based on the bite marks, the attacker is presumed to be a 20-foot long Great White shark.

After 1,100 miles and 52 days, Eddie Izzard has finishing line in sight
As a transvestite comic who is prone to put on weight and had never run farther than five miles, Eddie Izzard is not the obvious candidate to run 1,100 miles around Britain. But the 47-year-old stand-up and actor will today drag his aching limbs from the Olympic park to Trafalgar Square in the last of an astonishing 43 marathons he has completed in just 52 days... picked by doodlechild 1 year ago

Dock Ellis was baseball's first true king of performance enhancing drugs. Dock Ellis is probably the only player that intentionally tried to injure his opponents during an All-Star game.

Redskins sue 72 year old lifelong fan for breaking her season ticket contract due to financial hardship.
It would be hard to find a more loyal fan of the Washington Redskins than real estate agent Pat Hill. She's had season tickets since the early 1960s, when her daughter danced in the halftime shows at the old D.C. Stadium, before it was renamed in memory of Robert F.

For the bases that is. Blind individuals play beep ball, a form of baseball specially modified for the blind. A special baseball that beeps (and weighs an entire pound!) is used, and payers run toward padded columnar "bases" that beep. Due to varying levels of sightedness, players wear blindfolds on the field to keep things equal. An update on the sport from an earlier post picked by suebe 1 year ago

The man who invented camping
Throughout most of history, the rough terrain has been given over almost entirely to wildlife. But in the summer of 1869, the woods were overrun. For the first time, middle-class urbanites decided that a few weeks spent in the clutches of Nature might be survivable. In fact, they had been convinced it would be fun. picked by kakana 1 year ago
