Freese had the game-tying triple in the 9th before hitting the walk-off homer in the 11th. He’s the first player in World Series history to have a pair of tying or go-ahead hits in the 9th inning or later of the same game. Only seven others have two such hits in their careers, and only three (Joe Morgan, Roger Peckinpaugh, Tris Speaker) did those within the same series (but in different games).

What Freese and Berkman did in the 9th and 10th innings had only been done two times before in World Series history. Only Otis Nixon in 1992 and Josh DeVoe in 1911 had a game-tying RBI in the 9th inning or later with his team one out from being eliminated. [+]

Coincidentally (not ironically), David Freese was traded to the Cardinals for Jim Edmonds. They are the only two players in franchise history with postseason walk-off home runs in extra innings. [+]

Saw This Randomly Online.

One of the coolest GIF’s I’ve seen online so far. Earth fly over by satellite.


From the people who brought you Jackass The Movie, comes an interesting documentary about a family of Appalachian Tap Dancing Hicks.  Produced by Johnny Knoxville this entertaining piece drew my attention and has since been circulating through my group of friends with wild reactions.  This movie depicts the real life of some of the craziest, red necked, down home dirty white trash you have ever seen in your entire life…and they are PROUD of it.

My favorite part of the below video is at 1:16

“Our lifes just been a party and we just living like its a story, that we already dead but we still alive too, and we get to tell about it” –Jesco White

This video below is the official trailer for the movie, censored of course.

This goes along with the idea that old people using iPhones makes them less cool.  [iPhones Are Not Cool Anymore.] However since YouTube us a Google product somehow it had the opposite effect here.  This video of this elderly couple crack my up.  They are too funny.

Sometimes the best kind of viral video is one that’s a complete accident. That’s what happened when an elderly Oregon couple tried to take a picture of themselves using their new laptop’s webcam. Instead, however, they unwittingly recorded a hilarious video of themselves (scroll down to see the whole video). In it, 86-year old Bruce Huffman burps, makes faces, and shamelessly flirts with his 79-year-old wife Esther who ignores him while she tries to figure out how to take a photo. Esther was especially perplexed when she saw an error message pop up that read, “‘warning you must stop recording before trying to close.'” Esther went on to say, “Gee but I don’t know what I’m recording. Shucks.” For one fleeting moment, Bruce almost figured out what was going on when he sais, “maybe it’s recording us?” Unfortunately instead of exploring that possibility they moved on to another topic: their wrinkles. Apparently, their granddaughter had tried to teach the charming couple how to use the webcam. When the granddaughter was on the new computer a few days later, she found the funny video and posted it to YouTube. The Huffmans are now Internet sensations. Not only has their video been viewed more than 2 million times, but they’ve appeared on several television news shows. They aren’t the first couple to accidentally record themselves. Earlier this year, a video of elderly couple Rita and Frank doing the exact same thing got nearly 1.5 million views on YouTube. I can’t decide which video’s better! What do you think? Tell me and Twitter @AdrianaTweeting.

Recent discoveries of underwater cities are changing the ideas we had about how civilization evolved on earth. They have found sophisticated tools and giant structures deep below the surface of the ocean in many places around the world.  The recent findings show that humans had advanced to build giant cities and complex tools long before we ever thought possible.  In fact they have found tools that have been carbon dated back to 32,000 years ago. Which could mean that these cities had been around for tens of thousands of years before that. To give you some idea of comparison our culture has advanced to this level of technology in less than 15,000 years.  This means that a culture that existed long ago for more than 30,000 years before some catastrophic event caused their cities to sink into the ocean may have been far more technologically advanced than we are, in theory they could have been 3 times more advanced than we are today.  For all we know when the Great Floods happened they simply left the planet.

The strangest of all underwater finds concerns the monuments of Yonaguni Jima discovered off the coast of Japan(pic on left is called “the turtle”)…which were hotly debated at one time but more and more evidence has been accumulating suggesting that the structures are actually man made(cut right into the bedrock like many other structures found).

Most alternative archeological researchers seem to believe that there was a technologically advanced civilization who built their structures in stone that existed at the end of the last ice age, when the sea levels were over a hundred feet lower than today. Since the biggest cities are always built on the coast, the place to look for ancient cities would be the levels at which the ocean used to be at before all the ice melted(approx 9500 BC).

However, even without taking such extreme dating ideas seriously we can see that there are definitely underwater ruins strewn all over the planet. Since the ocean levels are thought to have gone up and done with mini ice ages, it may be that we had civilization earlier than we thought%u2026just not as early as some like to believe.

Take a look at these pictures of underwater structures…(all pictures from The Morien Institute)

The civilization of Ancient Egypt occurred in a past so remote that today it seems mystical. The pyramids and other temples, with their hieroglyphics depicting a flourishing civilization, have a mysterious, almost magical appeal. It seems inconceivable that people of an advanced society could have walked those ancient streets.
Now, it was announced in January, a civilization has been uncovered that would have appeared just as ancient to the people who built the pyramids as the pyramids seem to us.According to marine scientists in India, archaeological remains of this lost city have been discovered 36 metres (120 feet) underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India. And carbon dating says that they are 9,500 years old.This news completely contradicts the position of most Western historians and archaeologists, who (because it did not fit their theories) have always rejected, ignored, or suppressed evidence of an older view of mankind’s existence on planet Earth. Human civilization is now provably much more ancient than many have believed.

According to the BBC’s Tom Housden, reporting on the Cambay find:

map showing siteThe vast city — which is five miles long and two miles wide — is believed to predate the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.

The site was discovered by chance last year by oceanographers from India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology, who were conducting a survey of pollution.

Using sidescan sonar, which sends a beam of sound waves down to the bottom of the ocean, they identified huge geometrical structures at a depth of 120 feet.

Debris recovered from the site — including construction material, pottery, sections of walls, beads, sculpture, and human bones and teeth — has been carbon dated and found to be nearly 9,500 years old (BBC article).

Several reports confirm this estimate. Housden added, “The whole model of the origins of civilisation will have to be remade from scratch.”
Unheard-of Scope of Cambay RuinsThe BBC article tells us that the remains of this ancient city stand upon “enormous foundations.” Marine archaeologists discovered them with a technology known as “sub-bottom profiling.”Author and filmmaker Graham Hancock, an authority on archaeological investigations of ancient civilizations, reportedly said that the evidence was compelling. For example, he said that the oceanographers had found two large blocks that were larger than anything that’s ever been found. “Cities on this scale,” Hancock told BBC Online, “are not known in the archaeological record until roughly 4,500 years ago when the first big cities begin to appear in Mesopotamia.

Theorists are postulating that the area where this city exists was submerged when the ice caps melted at the end of the last Ice Age.

“A month ago in mid-January [2002],” says Hancock on his website, “marine scientists in India announced they had sonar images of square and rectangular shapes about 130 feet down off the northwestern coast of India in the Gulf of Khambhat (Cambay). . . . [There are] sonar shapes with 90-degree angles. The Indian Minister of Science and Technology ordered that the site be dredged. What was found has surprised archaeologists around the world” (

The Find Includes Human Remains

Linda Moulton Howe, who investigates occurrences of this type worldwide, interviewed Michael Cremo about this new discovery. Cremo is a researcher and author of the bookForbidden Archaeology. Cremo, Howe said, has visited India and attended local meetings about the Cambay site.

“Within the past few months,” Cremo told her, “the engineers began some dredging operations there and they pulled up human fossil bones, fossil wood, stone tools, pieces of pottery, and many other things that indicated that it indeed was a human habitation site that they had. And they were able to do more intensive sonar work there and were able to identify more structures. They appeared to have been laid out on the bank of a river that had been flowing from the Indian subcontinent out into that area.”

According to Howe:

Even if we don’t know what the cultural background of the people is, if it does happen to be a city that is 9500 years old, that is older than the Sumerian civilization by several thousand years. It is older than the Egyptian, older than the Chinese. So it would radically affect our whole picture of the development of urban civilization on this planet.

Now, if it further happens that additional research is able to identify the culture of the people who lived in that city that’s now underwater — if it turns out they are a Vedic people, which I think is quite probable given the location of this off the coast of India — I think that would radically change the whole picture of Indian history which has basically been written by Western archaeologists.

The below picture is a satellite image of the Caribbean sea floor and it shows what could be an expensive acient civilization that would rival our biggest cities today.

For the last 3 season this rivalry has been a bit lackluster in terms of the national rankings of the teams, but when it comes to excitement it has been #1.  So far in three season Michigan has found a way to win the game with less than 30 seconds on the clock.  However none of even those close nail biters compared to this years game under the lights for the first time in school history at the BIG HOUSE.

Notre Dame dominated the first half of football, including having a 14-0 lead and a halftime lead of 17-7, which became a 24-7 lead on the opening drive of the 3rd quarter.  With less than 3 min. in the 3rd quarter Denard Robinson started to mount the most unlikely of comebacks.  Out scoring ND 28-7 in the final quarter of the game. To try and put it into words would be a waste, just watch the highlights below.

— Full game in 14 min

Also if you watched the game and thought the crowd looked crazy from the view from your couch check out the videos below to see what it looked like from the stands after this last second touch down was scored.

You may want to turn down the volume on your computer before you play the videos below.

One last reflection after seeing these crowd videos. If you are a fan, a player, or a coach of another team in the BIG TEN you should start praying now that Michigan doesn’t schedule your game as a night game.  It is listed as the toughest place to play yet but after seeing that video I doubt anyone in the country wants to come play football at night at the BIG HOUSE.




Some students at the University of Kentucky with collaboration from the Christian Student Fellowship organized the largest water balloon fight to my knowledge in recorded history. The event used 175,141 water balloons and involved 8,957 people.  They also put this cool little video together to show the setup and the fight in slow motion. I recommend watching the fight in 720 HD.

This reminds me of another crazy college film i saw a few years back from the University of Dayton where they organize this run to get good hotels for a school trip to Daytona Beach Florida.

So after an interesting post by a friend (HERE) I decided to share some of my favorite people on YouTube.

This is the video from my friends post.  Yes there is a beat boxing cellist (1:33) which is one of the more unique talents I have ever seen.  Not to mention the song is great. If you go to watch any more of their videos leave my blog in the comments to let them know where you came form to watch it.


 is one of my favorite success stories from YouTube.  I started following her when she only had about 100 people listening to her music. She now tours the world singing and doing what she loves.  she is by far the best dorm room musician I have seen on YouTube.  By dorm room musician i mean when she started she was just sitting in front of her computer in her dorm room recording songs on her laptop.  She covers tons of fun songs as well as having many great originals.  All of the singing is her own she even does the harmonizing with herself.  For those of you who would love to play music for a living she is a great reference as to how to get started and how to truly do what you love.

Matthew Andrae, AKA , I found randomly on YouTube during a ukulele tangent of browsing.  When i first watch the video it had

only been seen about 1500 times.  It now has many more views than that. Below is an excerpt from her YouTube profile and the song.

“Imagine waking up to 15,000 new emails with 1000 new ones coming in every hour. The emails are from people you don’t know who want to congratulate you, share their most personal emotions about your music and meet you in person. Among these thousands of emails are others who want to sign you to their record label, manage your career, schedule interviews, and book your act. The first thing you might think is that you are still dreaming. “I remember smiling in disbelief” says Matthew Andrae, “Nobody gets that many emails except maybe Russell Crowe”. Since Andrae posted a video on You Tube last December of himself singing “Sweet Celine” and accompanying himself on the Guitalele (a cross between a classical guitar and a tenor ukulele), the song has racked up 603,102 views and touched many listeners.”

I was one of those people who emailed him.


  does not get nearly the viewership of the above three channels and the videos posted are generally random in content and theme, but he has a special ability to pull his camera out at just the right time to catch some special moments on film.  I have used his videos in the past on my blog for concert reviews, the video below was taken at a house party he had. The band is The Werks. (find there music for free HERE)

  This channel posts videos from one of the best college traditions I know of anywhere in the country. Every winter The University of Dayton and its students have a Christmas light competition, for an event called Christmas On Campus where they have under privileged kids from the city near by come out to campus to celebrate Christmas and get presents from college kids. It is a great charitable event but the reason it is so cool is how over board they take the Christmas light competition.

If you haven’t seen this video yet you must have been living in the internet dark ages but these guys play their only hit song on a subway in NYC all on iPhones and filmed on iPhones. You may be thinking that is lame, but it actually sounds great.

  comes from the guys who brought you superbad and funny or die. Basically they get friends of theirs super drunk and then asked them to explain historically significant events. If you are a history buff this will be a big laugh for you.

Just watch it. it’s the best ride ever in my whole entire life. haha. it felt like suicide. Thanks 

We went to Star City, in Manila Philippines. It was really corny but it did have this scary looking ride. I tried it, it was quite fun. My wife did not like it.  Star City is full of really cheap knock off rides. It is so funny. Jason Dragon  Aug 19, 2007
