This Tim Tebow/Bo Derek mash-up is classic


One of the more iconic movie moments of all-time has to actress Bo Derek running on the beach in a swimsuit in the movie, "10".

Well, it appears that some intrepid New York Jets/Tim Tebow (not sure which) fan decided to put together this incredibly hilarious mash-up clip.

Watch as Bo turns into Tebow running in the rain:

Zach Grienke does back flip trying to catch grounder


The newest member of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Zach Grienke made his first start over the weekend and during it, he showed off his flipping capabilities.

In the seventh inning of play, Grienke was facing Tampa Bay hitter Ben Zobrist and attempted to make a play on the grounder that Zobrist hit back at him.

Instead of making the play, Grienke did a back-flip instead:

San Francisco Giants ball girl falls down going for ball


As previously noted on this fair website, athletes and fans falling down are some of the favorite things that we love to post here at Laugh At Sports.

Check out this clip from over the weekend as one San Francisco Giants ball girl down the left field line lost her balance and fell down feet first. Watch as she attempts to corral a foul ball hit by the Los Angeles Dodgers James Loney:

Colorado Rockies loses track of outs during game


Previously on Laugh At Sports, we featured some rather forgettable moments from Major League Baseball players losing track of outs during games.

Check out what happened to the Colorado Rockies on Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds as the entire team lost track of outs in the top of the fifth inning.

Rockies pitcher Johnathan Sanchez struck out Reds left fielder Chris Heisey for the final out of the frame but for some reason, no one playing defense for the Rockies realized that. The team stayed on the field with three outs recorded and even confused Reds hitter Miguel Cairo to step to the plate thinking he had an at-bat.

It wasn't until home plate umpire Cory Blaser informed the Rockies of their mental lapse that Colorado players finally headed for the dugout:

Jason Terry, Fan Kisser


With Jason Terry joining the Celtics this offseason, Boston fans might be curious as to what he can bring to their team.  The stat sheet will tell you something close to 16 points off the bench with shooting percentages of .450/.380/.850 from the field, all of which will help Boston in its hopes to return to the playoffs.

But what other intangibles does Terry bring to a championship contender?  Well by the looks of this video, Terry is good at making older female fans happy.  That's not a skill you can teach.

Chris Williams tries to pull a Leon Lett or DeSean Jackson


With no one to beat, Chris Williams of the Hamilton Tiger Cats seem destined for a touchdown at the end of his return of a missed kick. But as we've seen often in the NFL, players with touchdowns in sight often do ridiculous things, and Williams got a little too cocky at the end, costing himself a touchdown. When will players learn? Hopefully never, because these plays are always pretty hilarious.


Kudos to Opposing Views for the story and video.

I'll be honest, I'm the type of person who isn't watching women's hurdling on a daily basis but the below video might make me a fan.

Recently, Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke was running at the 2012 Barcelona World Junior Championships and decided to dance before the start of the second heat.

Watch as Jenneke breaks it down as some intrepid individual decided to slow it down for us:

Minnesota Twins bat boy falls down trying to retrieve bat


As previously noted on this fine website, people falling down at sporting events will never get old by any stretch of the imagination.

We had another instant classic this week as this Minnesota Twins ball boy had a little bit of trouble trying to pick up a bat.

Los Angeles Dodgers fan shows off awesome dance moves at Tampa Bay Rays game


I'll be honest, I'm not really sure why this Los Angeles Dodgers fan decided to attend a baseball game between the Seattle Mariners and the Tampa Bay Rays.

However, extra innings gave this fan a chance to shine for the world of the Interweb and he showed off some smooth moves.

I'll give him an 8.5 on the dance but only a 5.4 on the delivery:

St Louis Cardinals Joe Kelly falls down after tripping over first


As previously noted on this site, watching professional athletes fall over is pretty hilarious by any stretch of the imagination.

Watch as Kelly flies and falls into the Busch Stadium grass/dirt:

Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan loses his bat twice at same at-bat

Ryan was facing Tampa Bay starter James Shields and during the second pitch of the at-bat, he lost his bat which flew into the visiting Mariners dugout.

Normally, that would be enough to get onto this site but watch as only one pitch later, Ryan loses it again and it nearly hits the same spot:

Over the weekend, Oakland Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp had a game-winning hit against the New York Yankees and his teammates decided to celebrate with some good old-fashion post game fun.

While Coco was doing an interview with the folks over at Comcast Sportsnet California, Crisp received a pie to face and some Gatorade on his head.

All in All, Coco didn't get it too bad:

Back on Thursday, the Oakland Athletics held their annual "Bark In the Park" night as over 700 dogs took in the Athletics/Yankees game.

During the game, one hilarious highlight came of this San Francisco Giants fan attempting to pet a Saint Bernard that was in a row in front of his seat.

It appears that the Saint Bernard was a Oakland fan as he nearly bites the guy on the hand:

Cubs fan deflects foul ball into female friend's drink


Just when you thought that you had seen it all at a Major League Baseball game, this Chicago Cubs fan pulled off something that I hadn't seen yet.

During Thursday's Cubs/Marlins affair, a foul ball from Miami's Hanley Ramirez found the seats and one male Cubs fan attempted to make the play on it.

Instead of grabbing the ball with his hand, he ended up deflecting it into his female friend's full beer cup:

Steve Nash is "The Godfather"


Steve Nash has spent the entire offseason creating parodies of famous movies. We already shared "The Bourne Laker" and "The Dark Knight" with you guys - here's Nash's take on "The Godfather," complete with lots and lots (and lots) of green grapes.

Keep your head on a swivel, guy!

The Final Showdown in the Chicago Vs. Chicago New Era Commcercials


The New Era commercials that pitted Cubs fan Nick Offerman vs. White Sox fan Craig Robinson in regular bar battles to discuss whose team was better has finally come to an end. After the first three hilarious videos, this one caps things off through an interesting use of play by play to match the actions of the two Chicago fans. The White Sox are certainly having the better season on the field this year, but in these commercials both Offerman and Robinson equally brought it, and it's a shame there won't be any more!

  

Kudos to adweek for posting this video!

Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis eat deep dish pizza during first pitch at Cubs game

Now presenting, "Jeremy Lin That I Used To Know":

Norfolk Rip Tide Mascot rolls an ATV in right field


Think you've got a tough job? Try wearing a giant mascot costume in the sweltering summer heat. Then add to that driving an ATV around the stadium on a nightly basis in said costume. The mascot for the Norfolk Rip Tides of AAA seems to have that routine down on most nights, but he had a little trouble recently maneuvering the turn in right field, leading to this video spill. Luckily he was right back up and at it afterwards, proving that a mascot's job is truly never done. 



Kudos to NESN/Deadspin for the story!

Minor league pitcher has "a little" difficulty with the intentional walk, throws the game away


You would think it might be hard to throw an intentional walk as a pitcher.  After all, you're typically asked to make the hitter swing, and for four straight pitches and intentional walk asks the pitcher to go against his every instinct and put the guy on base.

You would not, however, expect an intentional walk to be this difficult.  This minor league pitcher just can't find the catcher's mitt no matter how many times he tries.

Toronto Blue Jays fan catches foul ball with his legs


We've seen fans catch foul balls a variety of ways over the years but have you ever seen someone retain a foul ball with his legs.

It happened over the weekend in a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Cleveland Indians, when a foul ball hit by Cleveland's Jason Kipnis found the left field line seats.

Keep an eye on the guy carrying the refreshments as he stops the ball with his legs:

Zdeno Chara plays a little Slovakian Hero


I don't think anyone would doubt that Zdeno Chara is one of the best Slovakian hockey players alive.  His native country certainly thinks he's great on the ice, as they recently awarded him with the honor of being Slovakia's Top Defenseman and Top Player overall, both pretty impressive in and of themselves.

But then the band Team got up to do a song, and midway through they brought Chara on stage to help them out on guitar and sing.  He's no Richie Sambora, but the dude got some licks in and brought the crowd at the Zlat√Ĺ Puk (Golden Puck) Awards to their feet.

Jimmy Fallon as Roger Federer talks "the sports" at "the bar"


Jimmy Fallon has always been known for his impressions, ranging from a fantastic Neil Young to a very decent Russell Brand. Occasionally he'll dabble in athlete impressions as well, and that's where this impression of Roger Federer comes from. While it's debatable as to whether the impression is authentic to Federer, the skit itself is hilarious, with Federer discussing a world where Andy Murray could beat him and explaining Pippa Middelton's finer features.

A video from back when LeBron and Dwight Howard were lovable, hilarious guys


Dwight Howard has understandably been the center of attention this offseason, just as LeBron James was during season's end when he went for his first championship.  Many people are sick of the excessive coverage about both men and the popularity of each player has seen better days, but that wasn't always the case.  The video below features a dance off between LeBron, Dwight, and Shaq at the All Star Game, a real throw to the days when free agency decisions were the last thing we'd ever associate with these two young superstars.

The Steve Nash Identity - Starring Steve Nash as Steve Nash


For the past few weeks, several teams were going hard after free agent Steve Nash, with the Raptors and Knicks making several bold moves before the Lakers moved in to grab him. While all those teams were posturing to give themselves the best odds, Nash made a video to commemorate the occasion, posing himself as Matt Damon's character in The Bourne Identity series.

 Nash was aware he was being hunted - but would he find the right team before too long?

Steve Carrell has 5 doubts about his decision, is close friends with Lil' Wayne


After LeBron made his decision a few years ago, there were a lot of spoofs on the ESPN program where everything was announced to the world.  One of the better spoofs that some may have missed was done by Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd at the Espy's that year.  It's a tense discussion for sure, and we learn a lot about Carrell's habits, including the fact that he and Lil' Wayne are far closer than he and Paul Rudd.  Also Warren P. Chili as Dan Gilbert is a hilarious addition to the video.

Bryce Harper makes error in All Star Game, Clowns everywhere exclaim "That's a Bryce Harper defensive play, bro"


In the 5th inning of July 10th's All Star Game, Mike Napoli hit a pop fly to left field off of Clayton Kershaw.  It looked like an easy play for a few seconds until Harper lost the ball in the night sky, turned into a living statue, and watched as the ball dropped several feet behind him.

No damage came on the play since David Ortiz (the runner on 1st base) and Mike Napoli are not exactly the fastest men on Earth.  Regardless, Bryce Harper is going to have to answer more than a few clown questions for reporters thanks to his boner.


Thanks to Sportsgrid.com for the story.

Mets Camerman falls on purpose, looks awesome doing it

Ever tripped over someone, or had them stumble after bumping into you? This Mets cameraman regularly fakes the situation, finding innocent bystanders at games who he bumps into before falling down to the ground. The fans react in a sort of shock as the guy gets up, rights himself, and walks off unharmed. It's pretty awesome to see.

   

If you're a big fan of falling videos, you may also appreciate some of Alki Stevens' work. He had guys go around shopping malls falling on purpose and getting reactions from customers.

Royals fan takes tumble during MLB Home Run Derby


Last night, the MLB Home Run Derby provided the world with some of baseball's best players hitting home runs out of Kansas City's Kaufman Stadium.

However, the most memorable moment probably didn't come from any of the home runs flying out of the ballpark.

Check out this Royals fan who flied over a barrier attempting to get a ball from a police officer:


Phillies Hunter Pence runs into third base coach


Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence is one fleet-footed individual when he is fielding in the outfield but on the basepaths, that's a different story.

Check out the below clip of Hunter running into Phillies third base coach Juan Samuel as he attempted to score a run over the weekend.

I think we can give Juan a 6.8 for the tumble:

Baltimore Orioles Adam Jones and Robert Andino Put a Bird on it

 
Thanks to IFC's "Portlandia," 2012 has been the year of "Put a Bird on it," a practice which involves people putting birds on things and calling them art.

Robert Andino and Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles put their own spin on the craze in May, and the results are a few confused tourists and a new haircut for a Baltimore local.

Bronson Arroyo and Aroldis Chapman Cover "Red Hooded Sweatshirt"


Any fans of Adam Sandler or classic 90's SNL have surely heard of the tune "Red Hooded Sweatshirt."  Sandler's ode to the most comfortable of red hued clothing is one of his best pieces, and Bronson Arroyo recently paid tribute to the tune with Aroldis Chapman playing the role of Kevin Nealon.  It's an interesting cover to say the least!

Minnesota Twins Brian Dozier loses track of outs, gets picked off at first


It's understandable that during a Major League Baseball game that players can lose track of outs from time to time.

Check out this moment from Saturday's Minnesota Twins/Texas Rangers game as Twins runner Brian Dozier has a little bit of a mental lapse.

After a fly ball from Minnesota's Jamie Carroll was recorded by the Rangers for the second out of the inning, Dozier got picked off at first base to end the frame:

San Diego Padres fan gets hit by foul ball while posting on Facebook


"Do you know how to post bruises to Facebook?"...One San Diego Padres fan last night found that out after getting plunked by a foul ball during the Padres/Reds game at Petco Park.

The fan's name is Travis Decker and in the bottom of the second inning, he was sitting in section 221 attempting to post a status update on his phone.

San Diego's Will Venable was at the plate and fouled the ball off right into Decker's section which ended up hitting him right in the shoulder:

Beach soccer player kicks ball at opponent's head (Video)


Apparently, even beach soccer players can get a little angry over own goals and in the below clip, one player's frustration causes some pain for his opponent.

It happened during the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup qualifying match between England and Belarus as England Matthew Evans accidentally kicks in an own goal for Belarus.

Letting his frustrations show, Evans attempts to kick the ball away seconds later but ends hitting a Belarus player right in the head:

Bryce Harper takes shaving cream pie to the face (Video)

 
The old shaving cream pie in Major League Baseball goes back a few years and the latest victim of this assault was Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.

Harper was doing a postgame interview after the Nationals had beaten the San Francisco Giants on the 4th of July with the folks over at the MLB Network.

During the interview, Harper didn't keep his head on a swivel as teammate Jayson Werth got him with the pie:

Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel reads players tweets

Check out as Charlie attempts to read some of them with the help of Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino and he doesn't quite know what to make of the "hashtag":

Now presenting, "The Passion Of Tim Tebow"


We live in a world where many true stories have been turned into plays or movies, so it is natural that New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow would be the star of one.

The folks over at "Jest" decided to put together this mini-play called, "The Passion of Tim Tebow" and it is a five-star worthy parody.

Here it is in its entirety for your viewing enjoyment:

Mariners Munenori Kawasaki will dance in the dugout because he can


If you were to take a poll of the best Major League Baseball dancers, you might have to put Seattle Mariners shortstop Munenori Kawasaki near the top of the list.

Back on Sunday, he decided to show off his sweet dance moves while in the dugout of the Mariners game against the Red Sox.

Watch as Munenori put together one of the greatest dance performances I've seen in the past couple of years:


Apparently, Spiderman can fly out of C.C. Sabathia's butt


There are few sports videos that will just make you laugh the first time that you see them. This is one of those videos.

It comes to us from a YES network telecast of a New York Yankees/Atlanta Braves baseball game with Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia on the hill.

Due to an unfortunate graphics placement, a live-action promo for the new Spiderman movie appears to come out of Sabathia's rear end:
