Didier Zokora claimed that Emre Belozoglu used a racial slur when the two players’ Turkish clubs met in April. Belozoglu was suspended for two games for the incident.
Zokora got his revenge Sunday when he came together with Belozoglu.
Remind me to never go to Turkey and be a racist. That looked less like a kick to the junk and more like a guy getting gored during the Running Of The Bulls. Motherf**ker kicked a field goal. Didier only got a yellow card for his actions, but watching Belozoglu roll around on the ground in agony after being flung across the stadium by his scrotum was worth any punishment.
New Zealand cricketer Kane Williamson is one of the luckiest men on Earth today.
If you’ve ever wondered what happens when a high-speed cricket ball collides ball-on-ball with an exposed testicle, thank Christ you aren’t gonna find out here … in the above video, Williamson takes a shot to the crumpet and staggers away, removing his cup to reveal that it is basically split down the middle. If he hadn’t been wearing one, he might’ve had to give up cricket and start competitive blood-peeing.
The horror you might feel seeing that is immediately replaced by the announce team’s hilariously in-depth discussion of “skin torque” and the value of the “box breaking”. Apparently it’s a good thing when your box breaks.
So, uh, I guess we should be happy this wasn’t women’s cricket.

The YouTube description for this video says it all in a wonderful, Hans Moleman sort of way:
Man getting kicked in the balls after committing a foul and taunting other players.
I guess the only thing you can add after that is “excuse me, Man? If you’re going to commit a foul and taunt other players, don’t stand over them with your legs like that”. I don’t know a lot about lacrosse and even less about Hurling, which this apparently is, so I’m not sure where the fouling starts. A guy gets dragged to the ground, so a player from the other team hits him with a stick. Is it legal in Hurling to hit the other team with youre stick when they’re on the ground? Anyway, that guy gets checked from behind, then retaliates by kicking a guy in the balls. Funny, or video evidence of the least sportsmanlike player of all time? You make the call.
Because today is about some dudes who signed a piece of paper to give us the right to enjoy a three-day weekend each July by getting totally sh*t-hammered and making asses out of ourselves in the name of the good, old U.S. of A. And our founding fathers also gave us the right to purchase Chinese fireworks – often illegally – and put our lives in jeopardy with them. So I took a few seconds to scour YouTube for some of the better fireworks fails and I realized that thousands of people out there have no clue what “fail” means. And even more people think that poorly staged fireworks nut shots should be on Tosh.0.
Regardless, I put together this little collection for your enjoyment, and I’m sure that I left out some good videos because daddy is feeling ouchies from 3rd of July boozery, so feel free to remind me and I’ll add them in. Otherwise, have a safe and happy one and try not to burn off your eyebrows. Unless you’re Pete Sampras.
