NFL Films Announces Hard Knocks 2014 Will Feature Atlanta Falcons

Umm can I get a hell yeah?  Hard Knocks is one of my favorite shows and the Atlanta Falcons are my favorite NFL team so this is going to be a marriage in heaven no doubt.  We will get to see Arthur Blank behind the scenes pulling out his white glove and slapping one of his serfs like he is Colonel Sanders.  We will get to see head coach Mike Smith say absolutely nothing interesting while doing coach speak throughout.  We will get to see and hear Roddy White put his foot in his mouth multiple times while entertaining us Chad Johnson style.  Hopefully we will catch a glimpse of one of Matty Ice's road beef side pieces.  This will be must watch TV for what could be another painful season for all Falcons fans coming off a 4-12 season.  I don't think it will be a distraction and if anything it will keep the players more focused on rebounding from that shitfest 2013 season.

Over/Under on number of times Blank mentions his charitable work: 8

Talk About Luck: Sydney Man With a GoPro Cliffs Dive Into Water With a Great White Shark And Lives To Show It

Holy shit!  I'm trying to think of a more scary scenario than this.  Look I would be the last person you would see cliff diving.  I just couldn't muster up the courage even if I was hammered, black out drunk.  But to not only cliff dive and yet come down with the possibility of the world's most famous man eating predator just waiting for you as a snack is frightening.  This bloke is more lucky than any lottery winner.  His life was determined to go on only because that Great White waiting in the water had already eaten no doubt.

I'm trying to think of a more scarier scenario than cliff diving into Great White shark infested waters.  Hmmm, maybe being a Chicago Cubs fan.  Yeah that would definitely be suicidal.

A's Yoenis Cespedes Defies Logic With Terrible Fielding yet a Rocket Accurate Arm Saves Him Again

A's left fielder Yoenis Cespedes did it again last night vs the Angels.  Bobbling ground balls and making ridiculous on the mark throws has become Cespedes forte.  Watch him nail Albert Pujols at 3rd base...

And of course the night before Cespedes made one of the best throws I have ever seen.  He basically channeled his inner Bo Jackson and completed a frozen rope from the warning track all the way to home to nail Howie Kendrick...
