The Torch Relay will Involve a Space Walk
Despite the horrible anti-gay laws that exist in Russia right now, I am trying to keep an open mind about the 2014 Winter Olympic Games that will be held in Sochi next February. I tend to get all excited about the Olympic Games when they roll around every two years but this time, I can’t say I’ve been too thrilled with the idea of the Olympic Games being hosted by a homophobic nation. News today that the Olympic Torch was flown into space and delivered to the International Space Station is just too cool to ignore tho. Altho the Olympic Torch has flown into space twice before (in 1996 and 2000), this is the first time it will leave its space shuttle. The torch will remain in space for 5 days and will be taken on a space walk on Saturday! Wow. More »
Actually, She Got Pushed
Last week we saw a cute photo of Beyoncé and baby Blue Ivy enjoying a beach in New Zealand but it turns out that she got up to more than just maxin’ and relaxin’ by the ocean. It turns out that Bey also had time for some death-defying feats of fun. Click the embed above to watch Beyoncé get pushed off the top of a building and fall with her as she rockets back to Earth. Trust me, this is something that I would NEVER do but I gotta give Bey props not only for having the gumption to take a risk like this … but to look absolutely FLAWLESS in the process. Dang.

Earlier this year, Beyoncé brought down the HOUSE with her halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVII and next year, Bruno Mars will be taking over as the halftime entertainment. Pepsi and the NFL announce today that Bruno has been named as the headline halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVIII next February. Honestly, I wouldn’t immediately think that Bruno Mars is big enough to carry the Super Bowl halftime show on his own but … there’s no denying, he is a crazy talented performer. HMMM. Click below to read the full text of the press release announcement and see what you think of Bruno Mars the next Super Bowl halftime superstar. More »
Er, At Least He Tries To
Now that David Beckham is retired and all, he’s got a lot of time to do fun things with his children. Last night, Becks took his kids to Dodger Stadium to cheer on the LA Dodgers and as you can see below, he had a great time … mostly. Becks cradled little miss Harper Seven in his lap for the duration of the game but she was more interested in playing with/tormenting her daddy than in watching the game. Becks seemed to take the playfulness in stride but, haha, it did look sometimes like Harper was wearing him out. Check out the photos below and see what I mean. More »
Fully Clothed, Unfortunately :/
When last we saw actor Alexander Skarsgård here on the blog, he was fully nekkid showing off his p33n in the season finale episode of True Blood. Sigh. Today we get to see him fully clothed (boo) but drunk as a skunk at a soccer game in Sweden (I think). Now, because my Swedish is rusty (and by “rusty”, I mean non-existent), I cannot be exactly sure of what he his screaming in the video embedded above … I’m not even sure that he’s actually drunk but … yeah, he’s probably drunk and screaming at all the people. According to one translation I read, Alexander is heard screaming “All of you can go to Hell“, among other things, to his soccer rivals. Honestly, the translation doesn’t even matter … it’s just fun to see this hot man acting a damn fool like any ol’ drunken sports fan. Haha. IMHO, the video would be much better if the man were wearing less clothes but … I’m not complaining. Enjoy!

Detroit, MI was in the running to be the host city of the X-Games next year and, unfortunately, it didn’t end up being chosen … but there is a bit of good sports news to share out of Detroit Rock City. A new skateboard skate park has been built due to a generous grant funded by the Tony Hawk Foundation and last week, Hawk himself paid a visit to the skatepark in Hamtramck to christen the space in person. Click the embed above to watch a short video showcasing the Ride It Sculpture Park skatepark in Detroit and then click below to watch a video interview with Tony that was filmed last week. More »
Back in October of 2009, just a few months after the death of Michael Jackson, we saw photos of MJ‘s kids (and a few Jackson cousins) making their way home from a martial arts class. Today we learn that Prince Michael Jackson has been working hard all this time to master the art of Jiu Jitsu and has just recently achieved the ranking of blue belt. New photos of a very happy Prince showing off his blue belt certificate have been made available by TMZ, check ‘em out below. More »
The TV Guide
Yesterday was a very relaxing day here at home in Detroit Rock City. I spent much of the day chilling with my friends Sarah and Mark in their home (one of my favorite places on Earth) and then spent my evening beaming with pride of my BFF Sarah’s kickboxing skills. We finished out the night at the movies and, for the most part, had a really fun time out. I’ll get to the amazing kickboxing stuff in a bit but let’s talk a bit about my movie selection of the night — The Purge. Reactions to the film are a bit of a mixed bag among my friends but I can say that I liked the movie, for the most part. More »
