CNN doesn’t know this story has already been told in the movie Morning Glory

Some Australian Weatherman doing his best Ernie Appleby imitation

In a case of “Life Imitating Art”, CNN thinks it is news that some Australian Morning Show puts their weather guy in an airplane hoping he will pass out. Everyone wants to be known as an innovator. Even CNN’s Jeanne Moos thinks she came up with a ‘news’ story about a weatherman who does wacky weather reports…what she forgets is that the movie ‘Morning Glory’ has already spoofed all the inane morning weatherman stunts…

See the CNN story here.

Now compare it to a clip from the movie here.

The *real* Ernie Appleby from DayBreak Morning Show

Slow play will get you clubbed at this course in India

This guy, Milkha Singh, allegedly clobbered slow golfers from a flight ahead of him…

We’ve all been “peeved” by the slow play of the foursome in front of us… but apparently Milkha Singh, an old Olympian from India, got a little perturbed that the slow players were talking smack right back! Reports are that no less than 3 FIR Complaints were filed against Singh – also known as the “Flying Sikh” for taking his driver (and other clubs) out to beat on the players from the slower group. The jawing started around the 4th tee and continued up to the 16th tee when the blows started raining down…when those attacked started a counter-offensive.

Keep this in mind the next time you feel like driving a ball into the group playing ahead of you!

Read all the sordid details here!

This guy, Randeep Singh Nabha, member of The Flying Sikh Milkha Singh’s foursome, is allegedly one the recipients of the golf club counterattack

CNN: X Games too extreme? New questions after snowmobile accident

Caleb Moore crashed after attempting a back flip during his run at the Winter X Games freestyle snowmobile contest.

Oof! Ouch! This year’s Winter X Games have produced some serious injuries. We told you about the Battersby girls and Iceland’s Helgason. Now there is Colton and Caleb Moore. Both brothers (unlike the unrelated Battersby girls) crashed their sleds in the freestyle snowmobile competition. At first it was thought Caleb Moore just banged his head pretty hard. Later it was found the impact caused an injury that resulted in blood filling his chest cavity. Luckily the docs caught it in time and performed emergency surgery saving his life.

The number and severity of this year’s injuries has caused CNN to take notice.

See the footage on YouTube here.

And next time thank those Ski Patrollers/First Aid Providers/Medics who are there to help.

That was Some Bad Day for the Battersby Girls at the Winter X-Games

One Battersby suffered lumbar fractures and the other Battersby suffered a femur fracture.

According to TotalProSports.com: ‘If you’re last name is Battersby, you had a pretty bad day at the Winter X-Games yesterday in Aspen.

Now, I know what you’re wondering: how many people named “Battersby” are there at the Winter X-Games? Well, the answer is two. And both competed in the women’s ski slopestyle competition, though they are not related. Rose Battersby is a 20-year-old from New Zealand. Ashley Battersby is a 25-year-old from the USA.

Unfortunately, both Rose and Ashley had to be taken off the slopestyle course on a stretcher on Sunday.’

Winter X Games can be hazardous…

Iceland’s Halldor Helgason is about to crash big time at the 2013 Winter X Games

X Games Snowboarder Halldor Helgason was attempting a triple backflip when he over-rotated. The result? A tremendous face plant on the landing. The Ski Patrol brought in the backboard and sent Helgason on a sled ride to the hospital for a precautionary CT Scan and MRI. Reports are Helgason suffered a concussion on Friday night during the finals of the America’s Navy Snowboard Big Air competition at X Games Aspen.

Helgason, who is 22, won the gold in Big Air in 2010 and is the only Icelandic athlete to medal in the Winter X Games.

Oh, Torstein Horgmo of Norway out jumped Canadian Mark McMorris to win Big Air gold…

Will Lance ever race again?

Lance Armstrong may not ever race bikes again…but, what about scooters?

Lance Armstrong was contrite and possibly honest in his interview with Oprah. Will the powers that be ever allow Lance to compete again? If so in what sport discipline will he take his chances? We think scooter racing is his best bet.
