Not gonna lie. I also thought he said Wiz Khalifa at :11 when I first watched the video.
Have a great weekend and celebrate America by drinking a copious amount of macrobrews by the can and eating enough pig to put it on the endangered species list in three days. We’ll be in our prime on Tuesday. Word to Doc Holliday.
What in the name of Vic Tayback is going on? Honduras loses its mind then Billy Mays and Steve McNair go down. One would think the only species to maintain some honor and dignity among all these terrible events would be the rhinoceros beetle. Alas even these majestic beetles can do less and fall victim to shame and cowardice.
King Kabuto disgraced the National Rhinoceros Beetle Sumo Championship by flying away during his grand final bout with King Joe. Kabuto, owned by 7 year old Takuma Kobayashi, disgraced the sports of sumo by flying away from the fight and eventually the room where the competition was being held. He was disqualified and Joe, owned by 6 year old Shoichiro Ito, was declared the winner.
It is assumed that Kabuto will be stripped of his title and Kobayashi will be offered an honorable death by his own sword. Say what up to Michael, Tupac, Biggie and Tookie when you see them, kid.
What’s more in the tradition of 4th of July than a mixing of Japanese and American culture? I mean, isn’t that what the Nathan’s Hot Dog Challenge is all about? No? Oh well, whatever. In keeping in this idea that we created, we’ve decided to pull together some of the craziest moments in Japanese baseball that we could find on the interwebs…we were just that bored.
1) In Japan, you can pitch backwards:
2)In Japan, this is the only way to charge the mound:
3)In Japan, pitchers will stand up to anyone…not really:
4)In Japan, even the shirts catch balls:
5)In Japan, people can fly:
6)In Japan, you run away from fights…not to them:
7)In Japan, people can hit balls on a rope…LITERALLY:
8)In Japan, you find out what happens when you pitch a ball with a bazooka:

Wondering if Hideki Irabu is still awesome at sucking? Wonder no longer, my fat toad.
This is almost a half hour of footage of Barry Bonds taking on a Japanese comedian for some Japanese television show. You get to see some of Barry at his bulked up best, cranking balls left and right out of a small ballpark in California, beating the crap out of his opponent in a live action Baseball Board Game.
That alone is cool to watch but the amazing thing here is how much Barry seems to be genuinely enjoying himself. I don’t ever think I’ve seen Bonds smile and laugh this much, ever. It’s actually quite fun to watch him playing baseball without the weight of the world bearing down on his shoulders. Barry Bonds smiling, laughing and having fun, it’s been a long time. You forget how likable he can be when he doesn’t have the media and professional pressures beating him down.
Watch it now before it gets taken down because it probably will soon.
