The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?

近年のフジテレビの視聴率低下が何か話題になり、業界的には色々分析はあるんだと思うけど、「ハチミツとクローバー」から「もやしもん」「墓場鬼太郎」「東のエデン」「あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない。」「PSYCHO-PASS」そして、「僕街」などなど美少女やロボットだけじゃない、普通アニメの世界をコツコツと広げているのは、やっぱりフジじゃないかな~、と感じさせてくれるノイタミナ。 頑張ってる頑張ってる! そんなノイタミナブランドから新しいラインナップの発表があった。 オリジナルから、原作モノ、文芸モノ、続編モノ幅広いラインナップ。 http://noitamina.tv/lineup/2016/ 中でも注目なのは2016年4月からスタートする「甲鉄城のカバネリ」。 目を引くキャラクターデザインは、あのマクロスやトップをねらえ! の美樹本晴彦先生が原案。PVはとにかく動いてゾンビ的な敵カバネリをバンバンとやっつけていく、かっこよくも恐ろしい疾走感。むむと思えばアニメーション制作は『進撃の巨人』のウィットスタジオ、監督は同じく『進撃の巨人』の荒木哲郎。そりゃあ熱いはずだ。 甲鉄城のカバネリ 2016年4月7日スタート http://kabaneri.com/ ちなみに本作はフジテレビノイタミナ枠だけでなくAmazonプライムで「海外」にも配信予定だそうで、そういう意味でも注目の作品でもある。 以降も取り上げればきりがない気になる作品だらけだ。 バッテリー 2016年7月(ゼロジー) http://battery-anime.com/ 舟を編む 2016年10月 http://www.funewoamu.com/ クズの本懐 2017年1月 http://www.kuzunohonkai.com/ 冴えない彼女の育てかた♭(フラット) 2017年4月 http://www.saenai.tv/ 見るアニメに困ったら、 毎週木曜深夜のノイタミナをチェックせよ。 ちなみに、当たり前過ぎてつい忘れがちだけど、アニメーションのアルファベットを逆読みして(従来に無いアプローチ)いる事だけ覚えておこう。 Animation ⇒ noitamina ⇒ ノイタミナ
I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
 これまでにも様々な場面で余りの畜生っぷりを発揮する余り、ネット上などで 畜生ペンギン、略して”畜ペン”と呼ばれているつば九郎。  そんなつば九郎のブラックすぎるジョークが絶好調すぎるので紹介しておきたい。 ”今日からの神宮球場での試合、フジテレビが中継を行うので朝からフジの番組に出演し広報活動を行っているのだが、めざましテレビでは やくるとは しょうりがほしい  ふじてれびは すうじがほしい。 とスケッチブックに書いて、低視聴率にあえぐフジテレビをバッサリ。” http://news.livedoor.com/article/detail/10758454/ ”また、先日は がっつぽーずをかえしてください まなかのけん と、ドラフト会議で当たりクジを勘違いしてガッツポーズしてしまったヤクルトの真中監督をいじったり、はたまた くいず とばくはっけん と、現在球界を揺るがしている野球賭博までネタにしてしまうフリーダムっぷり” を遺憾なく発揮している。 http://getnews.jp/archives/1130076  また、こちらのリンクでも、先日のオリンピックのロゴ問題で発生した盗作問題にストレートな攻撃をしているなど 様々な場面でホットな話題に積極的に切り込んでいく 姿勢は実に応援したくなるものだ。  こういった畜生っぷりはつば九郎のオフィシャルブログでも時折発揮されているようなのでブラックな時事ネタが大好きな方はチェックしておくのが吉であろう。http://ameblo.jp/2896-blog/  当然ながらプロ野球の中心は選手であり、試合であることは間違いないが、陰から時折ブラックで、時折お茶目な話題を提供し続け プロ野球への世間の感心を様々な角度からサポートするつば九郎 はマスコットキャラクターの鑑とも言える。こういったブラックジョークも彼なりのプロ野球を今一度盛り上げんとする意思の現れであると考えれば、彼のその涙ぐましい努力にひたすら感心するばかりだ。 今後も迷うことなく畜生道を突き進んでいってほしい。

The Woman Who Struck Out Babe Ruth
And Lou Gehrig too. On April 2, 1931 the seventeen year-old Jackie Mitchell struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig back-to-back. They were arguably the deadliest hitting duo in baseball history, and she did it in only seven pitches. Which is pretty damn impressive. Less impressive is what happened afterwards. "They are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day." Ruth wasn't the most gracious in defeat (via), and some historians have dismissed the exhibition game as an April Fool's Prank. It's unlikely that Ruth would have been visibly upset if he struck out on purpose, nor would he have asked the umpire to inspect the ball. And a few days later, Mitchell's contract was voided on the basis that baseball was "too strenuous" for women. Yeah, beating some of the most famous players of all time sounds really strenuous. What if she broke a nail?! /sarcasm She kept playing anyway. So clearly the game wasn't TOO strenuous (she died in 1987 at the age of 74). She joined the amateur team House of David in 1933, and retired in 1937. Meanwhile, women weren't formally banned from the MLB until 1952, though unofficially they were often kept off the field. Such was the case for Eleanor Engle, who never took the field. The President of the minor leagues stated that no contract with a woman would be approved because “not in the best interest of baseball that such travesties be tolerated.” In the 1970s girls were allowed to join Little League, in the 80s women joined college baseball, and in the 1990s, Ila Borders joined the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League. But no female player has reached the majors (yet). But the 100-year anniversary of the time a teenage girl struck out some of the toughest hitters in baseball history. Maybe it'll happen again in 2031?
