B.J. Penn shows us how he’s preparing to whip Kenny Florian’s text message-denying ass this summer – in some dude’s garage. Okay, it doesn’t look all that impressive, but you should know that Marv Marinovich is the father of former USC quarterback and NFL washout Todd Marinovich, who just happened to be profiled in Esquire magazine last month (see, we read stuff). In the article Marv is portrayed as a revolutionary in the field of sports training and also as a complete nutjob who tried to make his son into a football cyborg and wound up at least partially helping to make him into a drug addict. Now he’s got his hands on B.J. Penn. Look out, world.
Rashad Evans looks back on his victory over Forrest Griffin and seems surprised that it didn’t feel more special. Geez Rashad, it’s not like you won the WAMMA belt or something. Show it a little appreciation. As far as dealing with a counter-striker, he says that fighting Lyoto Machida will be like “fighting myself,” which at least means that we’ll probably get to see somebody grab their crotch during this one. Thank God for that.
And finally, the worst street fight ever captured on video. Weird Al Yankovic and some guy in sweatpants kind of go at it in the middle of the street, but they end up doing more damage to the local traffic problem than they do to each other. Weird Al even tries to call timeout at one point. When that fails he goes back to pretending to know kung fu. Take a good look at these two men, Potato Nation. They are what happens when someone fails as a father.
