Watch this Umpire Take a Fastball to the Junk — Men With Balls
In this week’s edition of Men with Balls, Metta Man is the newest super hero, Kerwin Danley takes an inside fastball, a fan loses his shorts trying to get a foul ball and Blake Griffin gets the NBA Jam treatment.
But first, let us start with Andy Roddick blaming his tools:
Andy Roddick Smashes His Racket
We all know that tennis players can get a little angry at times and American tennis star Andy Roddick had a classic freak out last weekend. Roddick was playing in the Power Horse World Team Cup in a match against Carlos Berlocq, when one of his shots hit the net and caused him to destroy his racket in one fell swoop:
LeBron James Blows Wide-Open Dunk
Even NBA stars like LeBron James can have forgettable moments and during Wednesday's Heat/Celtics game two, LeBron blundered on an easy one handed jam.
It happened in the first quarter of play when James cut to the basket off of a pass from Udonis Haslem and attempted to throw down a massive slam dunk:
Watch Out Kerwin Danley!
It’s tough for some baseball fans to feel sorry for umpires but even the most cynical fan has to feel bad for home plate umpire Kerwin Danley during last Sunday’s Braves/Nationals affair.
Watch as Danley takes a pitch from Atlanta’s Brandon Beachey right off the groin and falls down like a house of cards seconds later:
Shorts On The Ground!
We're pretty sure that former American Idol contestant General Larry Platt was not too pleased with the outcome of this video. A Tampa Bay Rays fan was attempting to catch a foul ball hit by Rays catcher Jose Molina during Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox but something terrible occurred when he tried to make the play.
The fan’s shorts ended up coming loose and soon they were touching the ground after he failed to come up with the ball:
Some Kobe That I Used To Know
As many Lakers fans mourn their loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in Western Conference playoffs, one fan decided to put his thoughts into song.
Check out this parody of Gotye track, 'Somebody That I Used To Know' done by Kobye called, “The Kobe That I Used To Know”:
Staples Center “Call Me Maybe” Parody Is Pretty Good
On previous editions of Men With Balls, we featured some pretty solid parodies using Carly Rae Jepsen’s track, “Call Me Maybe”.Well, the folks over at the Staples Center decided to do their own parody and it pretty fantastic.
Check out LA Kings Ice Girls, LA Clippers cheerleaders, Staples Center security team, and Craig Sager jamming out:
Blake Griffin’s On Fire!!!
Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin had some slam-dunks this year that could be described as video gamesque and some brilliant human being decided to use them to make this classic video.
In the below clip, check out Blake’s real-life dunks done in the style of the classic video game, “NBA Jam”:
It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Metta Man!
Just when you thought that Metta World Peace (AKA Ron Artest) couldn’t get any more amusing, this video comes to life to prove otherwise.
Watch as Metta turns into the super hero, “Metta Man” and show off his skateboard skills to catch criminals!
