Best martial-arts fight scene EVER

May 20, 2009

Just……just awesome.  So very bad that it’s brilliant.  Terrible camera work, inexpensive gore, bad fight choreography, and 1 awesome line delivered after the bad guy has been dispatched.  This is a must watch from the film Undefeatable.

Many, many thanks to Abe for sending this in….

Miss Allen, who apparently is some sort of star somewhere, had more than her fair share of champagne while co-hosting the GQ Awards with Elton John.  Fun stuff.

Minor league baseball: 15 players and 2 head coaches ejected, 1 player arrested for felonious assault after (allegedly) hitting a fan in the forehead with a ball, fan sent to hospital.

This was insane.  You see baseball fights, but this one gets out of control quick.  Imagine if a little kid had been struck in the head with the baseball the pitcher whipped into the stands…..

ESPN

DAYTON, Ohio — A minor league pitcher accused of throwing a ball that hit a fan in the forehead during a bench-clearing brawl was charged with felonious assault, ordered held on $50,000 bond and directed to surrender his passport.

Peoria Chiefs pitcher Julio Castillo was arrested Thursday following a fight between the Class-A Chiefs and Dayton Dragons. Umpires ejected 15 players and the teams’ managers after the 10-minute brawl ended.

Video from the game shows the 21-year-old Castillo angrily throwing a ball, but doesn’t show where it landed.

Police identified the fan as Chris McCarthy, 44, of Middletown, and said he was hit in the forehead, the Dayton Daily News reported. Fans told police that McCarthy was knocked senseless and became incoherent.

The fan was treated and released at Miami Valley Hospital on Thursday night, said hospital spokeswoman Nancy Thickel. She didn’t know the extent of the fan’s injuries.

Castillo was arraigned by video from the Montgomery County jail on Friday and ordered held on bond. Dayton Municipal Judge Carl Henderson also required Castillo, who is from the Dominican Republic, to give up his passport.

“This charge is a result of outlandish and inexcusable conduct by a professional baseball player,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr. said in a statement.

If convicted, Castillo would face up to eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Dressed in jail blues, he stood with his arms folded behind his back and showed little emotion. He was flanked by his attorney and an interpreter. Castillo said he has been in the United States for a month and has been living with teammates in Peoria.

Defense attorney Kevin Braig had asked Castillo’s release.

“He is employed gainfully by the Peoria Chiefs,” Braig told the judge. “He has no history of prior offenses. I’ve been in contact with the club. This matter is being taken serious.”

A message seeking comment was left with Braig.

Dragons spokesman Tom Nichols said no mention of the brawl would be made during Friday’s game with Peoria, the final of a three-game series. Pregame warmups went without incident, with the players running, stretching and throwing on opposite sides of the outfield.

“I think what you’re going to find is even a more controlled atmosphere tonight,” said Jonathan Maurer, who brought his wife and their three children – ages 9, 8 and 5 – to Friday’s game.

The first few innings went smoothly, with no sign of any animosity between the teams. No batters were hit and there were few inside pitches.

The Dragons are affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds, while the Chiefs are affiliated with the Chicago Cubs.

Three Peoria batters were hit in Wednesday’s game between the clubs. After a Peoria player was hit in the top of the first on Thursday, Castillo hit two batters in the bottom half – one in the head. The second batter hit by Castillo, Angel Cabrerra, made an aggressive slide into second to break up a double play.

Castillo followed that by throwing his next pitch up-and-in, prompting Dayton manager Donnie Scott to complain to the home plate umpire. Interim Peoria manager Carmelo Martinez — filling in for Ryne Sandberg — came onto the field to join the discussion.

The two managers began arguing, and when Martinez pushed Scott, the benches emptied.

The teams protested the ejections by phone to Midwest League president George Spelius, saying they didn’t want pitchers playing in the outfield to finish the game. After an hour delay, the players who were ejected were allowed to come back and the game resumed. Dayton won 6-5.

“I wanted the game to continue, really for the fans,” Spelius said Friday. He said he warned both managers that there would be severe consequences for any further incidents in Thursday’s game.

Spelius said Friday that he spoke to the umpires about the brawl. He planned to read a report, review video footage and talk to team officials before imposing sanctions that could include fines and suspensions.

“He’ll hand down the appropriate punishments he deems necessary,” Chiefs spokesman Nathan Baliva said.

Aaron Brown, a fan who was standing in the lower section of the stadium near home plate, said the fight was sad for baseball. Players ran out of the dugout, and “all hell broke loose,” he said.

“You see paramedics running into the stands. Just when you think it ends, there is another group trying to fight. I was really surprised they continued the game,” said the 28-year-old from Columbus. “I’ve never seen anything like it before.”

ESPN video-very brief, but gives you an idea of how bad it got.

Fan video shot at the game, longer, shaky, cell phone footage and some NSFW language, but it gives a much better view of the entire incident.  Lots of fights…..and notice the pitcher who struck a fan in the stands with a ball picks up a bat to go after another fan that threw a beer at him.  Use your hands if you’re going to fight…..

Ice T and Soulja Boy will not be exchanging Christmas cards this year

June 20, 2008

Ice T, a rap icon, and self-described O.G. (Original Gangsta) had this to say about Souljah Boy (a soon to be forgotten flash in the pan)

“Fuck Soulja Boy! Eat a dick! This ni–a single handedly killed Hip Hop. That shit is such garbage man. We came all the way from Rakim, we came all the way from Das EFX, we came all the way from motherfuckers flowing like Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube, and you come with that Superman shit? That shit is garbage. Hurricane (Chris) take them fuoking beads out of your hair ni–a! Man up. You ni–as is making me feel real fucking mad about this shit.”

– Ice T on the sad state of rap music

NSFW language, listen to Ice T slam Soulja Boy

And Soulja Boy makes an even bigger jackass out of himself by rambling on for almost 8 minutes and saying not much more than repeatedly calling Ice T old.

And using the word “nigga” still seems perfectly acceptable in the rap world. Souljah Boy’s response is also full of NSFW language…and you’ll probably find yourself much dumber for listening.

“Anatomy of a Basebrawl” or “Why Sports Teach Valuable Lessons About Consequences”

June 7, 2008

I love baseball for many reasons. And the following is just one example. Like many sports, baseball has certain unwritten rules and practices among the players and managers. For example, if you’re a pitcher that is retaliating at another team/player, you don’t throw at another player’s head.

So, the other night, the Red Sox play the Tampa Bay (Devil)Rays. Red Sox player Coco Crisp is on 1st base and he attempts to steal second. As he slides in head-first, Rays shortstop Jason Bartlett takes the catcher’s throw and drops his knee in front of the base. This is a big no-no in baseball. Crisp could’ve been seriously injured, and in fact, he sprained his wrist because of it.

So, the next time Crisp is on first, he attempts to steal second base….and watch what happens.

So, seemingly, the issue would be settled. I love how baseball polices itself. No whining lawyers, just an understanding that if you break some of the unwritten rules, you will get punished one way or the other. The players know this, too. That Rays shortstop knew he wasn’t going to get away with his stunt. Unfortunately, he didn’t receive the payback.

So, the issue should’ve been settled, but apparently the Rays didn’t watch video of the original incident. So, as the next day, Crisp gets beaned, fakes like he’s going to take his base and then…..IT’S ON

Yeah, I suppose the brawl undermines my case for baseball policing itself, but hey, it’s still fun to watch.
