The Golfboard Almost Makes Golf Look Fun!

There's a cool new device out, that almost makes me want to play golf!  It's called the Golfboard, and it's sort of like a skateboard, sort of like a Segway, sort of like a surfboard.

Okay, it doesn't make me want to play golf, but it makes me want to ride one of these things around everywhere!

It's basically a powered skateboard, that has wheels to be able to cart you around off-road!

Free Beer & Hot Wings: Big Wave Surfer Shoots The Pier in Malibu [Video]

If you're not pro surfers like us, you may not be familiar with the term "shooting the pier."

Shooting the pier refers to a move where a surfer is surfing a wave and actually passes through the structure of a pier that is sticking out into the ocean.

Essentially, it's pretty ridiculous and you have to have massive balls to even try it.

Legendary big wave surfer Laird Hamilton has those balls.

Should the Washington Redskins Change Their Name?

Football season is here, and everyone is getting set for the end of the meaningless games, and the beginning of the real season.  Go Texans!  Sorry, I'm from Texas.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: 50 Cent’s Latest Challenge to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. [Video]
