Pretty neat. Barry Bonds' record is safe from me! Whew.....I need some Gatorade!

Wow, JJ, going through those links, how I missed Indoor League growing up I have no idea. That's just... it's awesome. Why isn't ESPN Classic running this sort of thing from 2-6am every night?

Oh my god, that Indoor League video is a thing of beauty. I especially love the host with the pint of ale in hand. Oh, and welcome back chico.

My second time playing the home run game and I hit 213 home runs. That was good for a little over 17k points. Try as I might, but I just couldn't get that set of lights all the way over to the left.

I'm not playing that game without an elbow guard.

I was going to play, but my helmet won't fit any more.

Two excellent cricket links JJ. I watched that Sobers' innings as a young kid. The (second) tied Test I listened to on Radio Australia. Greg Matthews - a few snags short of a barbie - indeed.

My second time playing the home run game and I hit 213 home runs. My high is 61. If I could figure out some way to get my computer to slow the game down, I think I could get more... perhaps as many as 73.

I especially love the host with the pint of ale in hand. Dont forget the pipe - and that's not just some bloke, that's the legend that is Fred Trueman, one of the greatest cricketers of all time. "I am here to propose a toast to sportswriters. It's up to you whether you stand up or not."

Skiing - "The gate to the groin" - the commentator makes it even funnier than it would be anyway.

That didn't work for some reason, probably because I'm on Safari (the web browser, not the luxury African holiday experience) and didn't type the HTML right: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20qB1dXAM78

Damn JJ you're right the announcer really makes the clip. "That guy needs a hug"

posted by vito90 at 04:38 PM on August 25

JJ, it gives a whole new meaning to the term "World Cup".

The scream from the skier is just...oh dear lord, that's gonna haunt me for a while. It's almost a Wilhelm scream.

My second time playing the home run game and I hit 213 home runs. My high is 81. The funny thing is, 8 out of 10 swings, I hit the Vegas/Chicago sign in the left-center gap. I guess I'm not getting through the ball, but that is a consistency previously unknown to me.

It's almost a Wilhelm scream. Wilhelm scream compilation.

Also, since I don't want to start another Bonds FPP, I'll post here this interesting analysis of Bonds' career progression and defense of his numbers.
