Cocky Fighter Gets Laid Out
A kickboxing match turned strange when following a few punches one of the fighters started egging on his opponent and giving him free shots.
At first you're impressed with the man's confidence and intensity, quickly, however, that respects fades. Not longer after he gives his opponent some free shots the man is knocked out cold with one punch.
The match only lasted about 30 seconds, but it's a fun 30 seconds.
Garnett Snubs Allen
The NBA season officially kicked off Tuesday night and one of the premier games on the docket was the Celtics and Heat.
The defending champion Heat and new addition Ray Allen faced off against Allen's old team and many wondered how the game between the rivals would play out.
The game was fun, but the pregame was awkward.
Allen greeted former teammates and coaches and most of them responded warmly. But when Allen tried to say hello to Kevin Garnett the big man just ignored him. Do I sense some hard feelings?
Well, I doubt Allen cared too much because he dropped 19 points on the Celtics as the Heat won easily 120 to 107.
