It's definitely got to feel rather unjust when an opponent lands a shot to the family jewels, but not if you land a shot of your own. Especially when it leads to a double knockout.
That was the case during this MMA match that took place during the filming of the documentary "Fight Church."
This has definitely got to be one of the most unique double knockouts we've seen. Although, it's imposibble to talk double KO's without revisiting one of the greatest moments in MMA history.
It's hard to judge which clip is more entertaining to play on a loop. Not so hard to tell which one probably hurt the most, though.

If you've ever wanted to see what it's like to live in a neighborhood that has a bear problem today's a lucky day. While it may seem humorous to have your average bear sneak into your pool on a hot summers day, we'd have to imagine it would actually be terrifying.
These Southern California homeowners found out exactly what it's like to have Yogi bear go pool hopping in their backyard.
Bill Cosby was way off, as it's clearly bears who do the darnedest things. You'll probably remember this bear from last week who was just absolutely fascinated with the physics of a flag stick on a golf course.
With the Chicago Bears stealing a win on the road Sunday night over the San Francisco 49ers, it's high tie we put this alert out: Bears across the globe have gone wild.

Quincy Symonds, also known as The Flying Squirrel in surfing circles, is a 6-year-old girl who is really really good at surfing. This video features Symonds surfing on the Gold Coast of Australia and tackling monster waves with ease. Apparently, The Flying Squirrel started surfing a couple of years ago and one could only imagine how good she will be in another couple years.

As they've done the last few years, the Pittsburgh Penguins players delivered season tickets to their fans. The thrill for fans to receive their tickets from the likes of Malkin, Fleury and Sidney Crosby is one thing, but to actually then get to play street hockey with Crosby is pretty awesome.
So, here's the Penguins very eventful day of being delivery men.
And here's a Sid Selfie for kicks.

After his one man show at the Winter Olympics and years of highlight breakaways, T.J. Oshie has certainly carved out his spot as one of the most feared penalty shot-takers in the NHL.
Unless you're lucky enough to be one of the 60 goalies in the league, you'll most likely never get to experience what it's like to stare down Oshie's death by dangles shootout routine in first-person. Until today. While recently attending Brett Hull's Fantasy Camp, Oshie took part in a shootout contest. One we have the pleasure of viewing through a GoPro Camera.

While it was cool to see the first-person angle, Oshie's goal in the clip was fairly tame. But in this second video, you get to see exactly why Oshie is considered one of the most menacing threats in a one-on-one situation.
Oshie Penalty Shots
from Tommy Lee
If you didn't flinch upon Oshie's fake shot, congratulations Mr. Parker, your spidey senses are indeed tingling. But for the rest of us mere mortals, man how good was that fake? According to Oshie's twitter page, the Blues forward's efforts didn't lead to a victory at Hull's camp. But judging by the massive ring he received for attending the camp, the spoils of defeat still seem to be just as sweet as that of victory.
Oshie may want to consider letting Mr. Hartmoyer try that ring on. It's the least he could do after undressing him for the whole world to see. The life of a goalie is not an easy one.

In the world of sports, there are certain guest spots that are most sacred to an athlete. Hosting duties on Saturday Night Live, appearing on the tonight show, or getting drawn into an episode of the Simpsons. These are spots that allow an athlete to transcend their sport, allowing them to leap frog into the main stream consciousness.
Many want the spot, only a few ever land it. But the people over at Bleacher Report lent a helping hand to a few NFL players, by "Simpsonizing' them on their own with the help of the talented artist, Adrien Noterdaem.
You've gotta love the attention to detail on the player props. Cutler's got his classic dart hanging out of the corner of his mouth, Lynch has his skittles, and Brady has his Ugg boots. If you're looking to view even more Simpsonized players, you can check out the rest here on Bleacher Report

The moral of this story is that when you invite seemingly the entire campus to the gym to watch you dunk, you better be able to actually dunk. This was the scene at Morehead State, as this extremely confident student rips his shirt off to go up for the big slam and then proceeds to face plant in front of the entire gym.
Can't endorse this video enough.

Sunday made for a pretty interesting day in the MLB. Camden Yards said farewell to Derek Jeter, Clayton Kershaw continued to pad his NL MVP credentials, and both the Tigers and the Jays had some of their rookies dress up in lingerie as well as in a wedding dress.
You may have thought you never needed to see a bunch of grown men in lingerie and shoulder pads, or Marcus Stroman in a wedding dress, but you'd be wrong.
The Blue Jays held a similar type of rookie day on Sunday, with their rookies selecting a costume of their choice to wear to the ballpark. Not hard to see Stroman was the definitive champion of rookie dress up day.
The Jays and the Tigers are locked in the heat of battle for the final AL Wild Card spot. But when it comes to the costume war, the championship banner is clearly flying north of the border.
