It’s Cool to be Awesome at Sports

And be humble about it.

155. Succeed on Your First Try

Posted in skills, sweet videos on August 31, 2011 by Allen

You can do this in a myriad of ways, from landing your first job interview, to throwing a knockout punch, to acing a cross court serve.   Like everything in life, it’s not so much what you do as how you do it.  In the case of cool people, they do it in their first go!

Look, what it really comes down to is time management.  The fewer interviews you have to go to, the fewer shots you have to take, the fewer strokes you have to execute, the more time you’ll have to do cool things.  True, always succeeding on your first try can get a little annoying for your friends but nobody ever said that being cool didn’t come at a price.

Practice makes perfect, but wouldn’t it be better to just skip all that boring practice stuff and jump straight to the perfect?

I wrote this post partially as an excuse to upload this super rad disc golf video that my little brothers showed me.

Made by Fog and Smog.  Shown to me by Seamus.  Everyone’s seen this already, but it doesn’t make it any less rad.

151. A Couch in the Back of your Pickup

Posted in stuff, sweet videos with tags , , on July 8, 2011 by Allen

There is no finer way to watch a drive-in movie than sitting on a plush chesterfield in the back of a pickup truck.  You want your rig to be the heart of the bush party?  Why not toss a sofa in your Sonoma.  At the pre-game tailgate, nothing says “opulence” quite like cooking bratwurst from the comfort of a loveseat.

Look, if you have a pickup, you’re already one step closer to being a redneck.  Time to embrace your true self and start moving your whole living room out there.

135. Be Awesome at Shuffling Cards

Posted in skills, sweet videos on November 24, 2010 by Allen

Or any kind of card manipulation for that matter.  The sweetest part of any poker hand is when the dealer goes from a Tornado Box Opener  to a Buckeye, into a Ribbon Spread followed by a Riffle Shuffle and a Card Spring Flourish before finally dealing out the cards.  This is how you achieve full croupier status.

The only drawback to becoming awesome at card manipulation is that it requires practice.  Unfortunately, at the beginning this practice usually results in cards flying everywhere.  That sucks.  To fix this problem, you can do one of three things:

1.  Get good quickly.

2.  Have 10 or 15 different decks of cards on the table.  If one blows up all over the place, let it go.  Just grab the next deck and keep on practicing.

3.  Have a couple of kids running around picking up all the cards when they fall to the ground.  To them, you’re just playing 52 Pickup, and all kids love 52 Pickup.

Remember, it’s not wether you win or loose, it’s how you make the cards dance!

Super Cool Biking Video Sequel

How does he even imagine these tricks?  There is no way that anyone should be able to do what Danny MacAskill can.  This is the highly anticipated sequel to his Inspired Bicycles video, posted earlier on this blog.

Thanks, little brother Peter, for giving me the heads up on this one.

What the What??!!…..  So apparently a brother and sister both get their wisdom teeth taken out on the same day.  This is the aftermath.  My conclusion:  Propofol’s one hell of a drug!

“Big Ups” to the mother of these kids for somehow managing to film while driving.
