You can pinpoint the exact moment these Phillies fans heart breaks

As a sports fan I've suffered a lot. It's well known that I've always been fond of Pride FC and their fighters, everyone gets old, and that's what has happened to a lot of the guys in Pride. I was and still am a fan of Dale Earnhardt Sr. along with boxing NASCAR was my first love, obviously seeing one of my heroes pass wasn't easy. I'm a New York Rangers fan who as of the past few years have been playing fantastic, but I still haven't experienced them winning a Stanley Cup as I was four when they won their last one. I'm also a Knicks fan and that speaks of itself. That's not to say I've never felt the highest of highs, I've seem the New York Giants win two super bowls and not only two super bowls but two super bowls vs. The New England Patriots. As someone who lives in Connecticut, this made it that much more sweet.

That said, I've experienced the heartbreak these Phillies fans have experience. Poor poor Philadelphia, hey chin up, at least you have This Is Hardcore coming up this summer.

Watch RZA's super unrealistic fight scene against Tony Jaa in The Protector 2

Do you think there will ever be a point in history in which film connoisseurs will unanimously agree that RZA is an action star? Has that quietly arrived and I just refuse to recognize it? Last year he starred opposite of Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, and Dave Bautista in The Man with the Iron Fists, a film that not only he wrote but directed. That year he was also in G.I. Joe: Retaliation as 'Blind Master,' a movie that I still haven't seen in fear of any part of my childhood being ruined by modern Hollywood.

In 2014 we can see him in the sequel to one of the most underrated Tony Jaa movies out there, The Protector 2. Whenever martial arts and elephants blend together in some bizarre way, you should cancel all your social activities and run to see whatever it is. Fortunately they merge in a movie, not some half-assed circus show in Bangkok (although that would be really cool).

The Protector 2 comes out in US theaters on May 2nd, but the the press people at Magnet really dig MiddleEasy and they let us know they released the entire RZA vs. Tony Jaa fight scene for everyone to witness how hyper-unrealistic it would be in real life.

This fan made trailer is infinitely better than the official TMNT trailer

Guys, I know the MMA community is always divided, Fedor or Brock, Brazilian Top Team or Chute Boxe, Sakuraba or the Gracie's. There is one thing that we can come together about, we can all agree that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle trailer was awful, but guess what? IT'S NOT MADE FOR US. So please stop complaining. Trust me, I understand, I grew up watching and loving TMNT and I still do love them. Sure, it sucks that this movie isn't aimed towards me and people like me but me getting mad is irrational and silly because after all, it isn't made for me, it's a vehicle to move merchandise.

Also this does nothing to destroy what you already liked about TMNT. Whether it be the comics, the animated series, the video games, the original movies. All those things are still awesome and this has zero effect on it.

Plus, we still have the glorious glorious internet to give us spoofs of the awful trailer that was.

Watch all 5,179 deaths in Game of Thrones in under 3 minutes

The reason why I don't watch Game of Thrones is because Elder Scrolls exists, and it's infinitely better than just watching a show on HBO. I've yet to actually purchase Elder Scrolls Online, however I will do so whenever I look at my bank account after the end of this weekend. Generally that's how all my extraneous spending is handled. The truth is, I'm great with money -- but I'm better at telling people that I'm great with money. One of those statements is a lie, and I want all of you to spend your Saturday afternoon discovering which is true. Thank you.

Oh yeah, this Game of Thrones stuff. The only reason why I'm posting this is because a large portion of you out there watch this show and could appreciate recapping every death from Game of Thrones. You better not let me down. Watch, and props to stevemcawesome for the +100 news tip.

The Yakuza have finally entered the digital world, and it's amateur

Everyone’s done it. Back when Angelfire and Geocities gave you a free website, we were all at it. Flashing .gifs, music that auto-played when the page loaded and extreme overuse of html tags. The visitor counter at the bottom of the page was almost mandatory, and a badge of pride for many. I can’t remember what I made websites about to be honest, but I’m certain they were terrible. I think one of them was a tribute to Stone Cold Steve Austin (hell yeah!) and another was for my soccer team. I know quite a few people who made a site for him and his friends and different “clubs” they would form actually. Geocities spawned many short-lived car appreciation clubs at my school.

Of course, people still do this, but they just make a page or a closed group on Facebook. In retrospect, that’s maybe what the Yamaguchi-Gumi should have done. Instead, Japan’s largest criminal organization has created this site. I feel bad slamming their efforts when the website clearly has a noble cause at heart. Google has translated the site name as “Drug Expulsion of Land Purification Alliance” and Vice tells us, the whole organization was set up to fight against the amphetamine abuse prevalent in Japan after World War II.

Why they actually need a website is unclear but the thoughts are that it is to serve as a recruitment tool. Despite being the largest such organization in Japan, their numbers have been steadily falling. It’s quite possible that they will have an influx of Japanese web designers looking to join their ranks soon enough, judging by the message at the bottom which Google have translated to say “We are a complete amateur in regard homepage. I think whether there is also a part somewhat unsightly. Please forgive. Come and have a point of notice something please e-mail. For inexperienced, it may take some time to reply.. Please forgive.” We forgive you for your crimes to web design, we must assume you were busy with human trafficking and prostitution to take up a few Code Academy lessons. [Source]
