Go Go Gadget Beatbox!

This video alone makes me want to pick up and learn what has long been stereotyped as a rather feminine instrument…


Big Ten Power Rankings (Week 7)

November 2, 2007

I got a couple of complaints this week from some loyal readers regarding my lack of commentary on the now-infamous YouTube video of Buckeye fans getting a beer shower from drunken PSU frat boys plus the fact that JoePa is no longer having his players clean up the stadium on Sundays. Before I get to this week’s rankings I figure I should give my two cents:

  • I don’t care if it was real or if it was merely a stunt between fellow frat brothers from PSU, Pitt, and OSU, the behavior of everyone involved in this act: whether it was the douchebags who actually threw beer cans or the hundred or so other idiots that condoned it by cheering the hurlers on while chanting “Fuck Ohio”, or the shit-for-brains that thought it would be cool/funny to film such an event and put it up on YouTube have utterly and completely disgraced not only my alma mater, but my hometown. It is at least, somewhat relieving to see the police are taking action in holding the Pitt student who nailed one of the OSU guys at point-blank range and the entire Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at PSU responsible.
  • Regarding the stadium clean-up, it’s really nothing blog-worthy in my opinion. Apparently, JoePa felt his team finally got the message and didn’t see the point in enforcing such an activity upon them anymore. Not like it matters much anyway, there’s only tomorrow’s home game left.

Alright, on to the rankings:

1. Ohio State (1) – Holding up what is otherwise a very unstable Big Ten fort.

2. Michigan (2) – It looks like PSU is not the only team Michigan’s got a significant win streak going against. The last time they lost to the so-called “Safety School” (Michigan State) was in 2001, when Sparty got a boost from Mister Home Clock Operator

3. Wisconsin (5) – A very impressive win for the Badgers against IU…and where the hell did their defense come from, holding the Hoosiers to a field goal?

4. Illinois (4) – Congrats on beating Ball State to earn your first bowl eligibility since the planets and the stars perfectly aligned six years ago when you won the Big Ten. Anyone noticing a trend here with Michigan State beating Michigan and Illinois winning the Big Ten in the same season? Boy, was 2001 a messed up year in college football…

5. Penn State (3) – Here’s to hoping our defense displays some of this on Saturday…

6. Purdue (6) – Hear their train a-coming into Happy Valley!

7. Iowa (10) – With IU and Northwestern getting handily beaten last Saturday, the Hawkeyes climb all the way to 7th after being left for dead by Michigan State only to come back and win in double OT.

I’m also curious to see what crazy prediction “Psychic” Tom Arnold will make for this weekend’s game against Northwestern after correctly predicting last week that RB Albert Young would score 2 TDs despite the fact he had only one TD all season long and had been kept out of the end zone for seven straight games prior to last weekend.

What is the meaning of life? Will you die tomorrow? Only “Arnold-damus” has the answer…

8. Indiana (7) – Did Indiana suddenly realize that they’re Indiana? Their offense was nowhere to be found against a very pedestrian Wisconsin defense.

9. Northwestern (8) – Looking to do the unthinkable and win their third straight against Iowa…

10. Michigan State (9) – The Ghost of Sparty’s Past, John L. Smith made an appearance last Saturday as MSU blew another lead against an opponent left for dead. Yes, Johnelle may be long gone but his spirit still continues to provide a nice slap-in-the-face to the program.

This will never cease to be funny.

11. Minnesota (11) – This week’s guest comment on the Gophers’ magically crap-tastic season comes from ESPN.com’s “Bottom 10” where Minny is firmly holding up the 7th spot and a Halloween-themed song is being attached to them.

“Haunted House”: Jumpin’ Gene Simmons (no, not the one from Kiss) might be blasting through the Metrodome sound system when the Gophers host Illinois.

Potpourri Thursday: LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!

September 13, 2007

Here’s what I’m hoping to make a running segment here on HHV. Basically I’ll just be showcasing all the random stuff I’ve discovered during the week via YouTube or other websites.

My friend IM’ed me this YouTube clip earlier today of some drag queen named Chris Crocker who takes the Britney Spears fiasco a little too seriously. I’ve got a little advice for Mr./Mrs. Crocker: Go to your garage (if you have one), get inside your car, start the engine, and continue to let it run while you cry yourself to sleep over something as fucking pointless as Britney Spears’ being ill-prepared to make a comeback.

I’m also probably late jumping on the “Chocolate Rain” bandwagon but I can’t help but laugh at some of the parodies of this internet classic.

Here’s the original video for those who have never seen it

Darth Vader’s version

Ah, the good ol’ days of Super-Sized meals. Does that “dummy” not bear an eerie resemblance to Tay Zonday?

Mega Man II intro (one of the best intros in Nintendo history) with a twist.

Speaking of Nintendo…the Angry Video Game Nerd’s latest subject is the famed “Nintendo Power” magazine. If you subscribed to the magazine back in its infancy, you’ll definitely want to check this out.

It’s a Celebration Bitches!

September 2, 2007

About an hour after Michigan fell on the wrong end of the greatest upset in modern college football history, YouTube began to light up with videos of the ensuing celebrations that followed.

In this clip, the PSU students are celebrating App State’s go-ahead field goal with 30 seconds to go.

And this was taken right after the game-sealing blocked field goal

And in this clip, Israel and Palestine hold hands and sing “Kumbaya”

Countdown To College Football (The Finale)

August 29, 2007

I have just finished my final predictions for my close friend’s PSU football pool and will have a post/analysis of my picks up sometime either tomorrow or Friday so be on the lookout for that.

As a lot of you may know, the college football season officially kicks off tomorrow night with ESPN’s “Thursday Night Football” showcasing an imminent sacrificing of the lamb when LSU pays a visit to Mississippi State (8 PM ET). For now though, I present to you one final, favorite clip of mine from YouTube. This clip features a nice Star-Wars themed highlight reel of the 2005 epic between USC and Notre Dame. Even though it was put together by a Notre Dame fan, the clip manages to show great plays from both teams which is a rarity with highlight clips on YouTube.

I’m also trying to figure out who “Darth Poodle” is supposed to be in the clip. Lee Corso? Pete Carroll? Matt Leinart? This has “Keyser Soze” like potential.

Countdown To College Football…After Dark.

August 28, 2007

First of all, I’d like to thank Run Up The Score and The Nittany Turkey for pimping out this site. As a result, I ended up with 77 views yesterday (technically speaking, it is Tuesday morning here in Delaware), crushing my previous record of 27 views. I am now anxiously awaiting the day that this blog hits the century mark…

And now boys & girls, it’s time once again for another YouTube dandy to get you psyched for the start of the season (Only 2 days away!). Tonight’s video takes us back five years to 2002 where Ohio State, down 6-3 at Purdue and facing a “4th-and-BCS title hopes” situation scored the winning TD on a deep connection from Craig Krenzel (rumored to be the first student-athlete in Ohio State football history) to Michael Jenkins, subsequently causing Brent Musberger to have a seizure from the excitement of watching his adopted team win in such dramatic fashion. Enjoy.
