Video: Blogger Eats It While Curling

Zoo with Roy fashion model and Internet sports person Ryan Petzar set out on a quest to learn the art of curling, an Olympic ice sport that caught fire at the Vancouver 2010 games.

So why would a Philly website be talking about curling? Turns out the 2012 USA Curling national championship is being held just around the corner in Aston, PA.

You can actually watch a live feed of the event on their website here.

Or, if you'd prefer to head straight to the lowlights, watch Pezrawr take a dive below. His post about curling is also informative and humorous. But the video is the best.

The money ice-eating shot comes in around the 2:00 minute mark.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, their was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Cowboys and Eagles will face off on Sunday Night Football, where we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz. 

Check out the video for yourself here.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
