"Hair one day, Gone tomorrow" - What ha... happened (November Part two)


"Hair one day, Gone tomorrow" - What ha... happened (November Part two)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (11-22-13)

[Part one - "Daddy's Little Girl"]



"What ha... happened," where we scour the internet for a crazy sports photo or GIF and someone must try to explain it. Seesaw Sports asks what ha... happened? Monday: Opening statement. Friday: Rebuttal.

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?



TODD:
Ha, backpacks. That's nothing.

I present to you the following:




Photo: I see your backpack and raise you a...

Title: "Hair one day, Gone tomorrow"

Description: There are many forms of hazing in sports. The wearing of girly items is just one such iteration. Costumes are occasionally involved. Duct tape and goal posts have been known to be a part of this. But what is worse than the hair-related hazing? It produces the double-whammy of making said player look like a complete fool, combined with only one possible cure for said foolery. The player has to shave their head completely. Damn!

Here we find some Titans players with a few choice hair cuts.

What ha... happened?


DAN:
You win, fair and square. Crappy haircut beats backpack.

The rookie's right of passage in the NFL has become no laughing matter thanks to the Miami Dolphins, yet now thanks to you it's once again funny! Phew, I missed the good old fashioned defacing of one's body for camaraderie. There are not nearly enough photos like this. Tim Tebow's head shave comes to mind, but he looked young. These players here are men. These men are apparently rookies, rookies with now butchered hair cuts.

I agree, these men must now shave their heads to avoid some sort of awkward Mohawk thing forming atop their bodies. Yet what exactly went down?

This one is a doozy. These Tennessee Titans players made the unfortunate mistake of meeting up with then second year pro Vince Young for a "Pizza Party." Gotcha! Everyone knows that football players love pizza, or any kind of food that is greasy. They arrived at what turned out to be an abandoned class room, expecting pizza. They were greeted by Mr. Young and an electric buzzer. Minutes later and their heads were forever tarnished.

That's what happened. Long live the Titans.

"Daddy's Little Girl" - What ha... happened (November Part one)

DAN:
Aww, how cute.

I present to you the following:




Photo: If that isn't hazing, I don't know what is.

Title: "Daddy's Little Girl"

Description: My mind is running wild with possibility. Is this how they haze the rookies up in Seattle? It is progressive up there after all, where cruel and unusual punishment is not unheard of.

Did his daughter need a bigger bag and he took one for the team? That seems unlikely, but something went down. How did THAT bag end up on this man?

What ha.... happened?


TODD:
It's funny you should target this photo in the wake of all the Miami Dolphins controversy in the NFL.

Yes, as silly as it sounds, this backpack is DEFINITELY hazing. And it may be banned in the future, at least in the NFL.

The Richie Incognito - Jonathan Martin scandal took so many unexpected twists and turns. One unlikely consequence is probably going to be some sort of crackdown on hazing, no matter how silly the original hazing actually was. Even if wearing a girly backpack or forcing the rookies to carry bat bags and ball buckets seems harmless, it could be a slippery slope. What happened in the Dolphins' locker room may not have even been hazing-related, but some reactive outcome has to come from that. There was too much coverage for nothing to result. So cherish photos like this one, because they may never be allowed to happened again if the professional sports start cracking down.

"If you thought bubble soccer looked stupid" - What ha... happened (October Part two)


"If you thought bubble soccer looked stupid" - What ha... happened (October Part two)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (10-18-13)

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?



TODD:
I win again young Skywalker, as my fake sport is more fake than yours.

I present to you the following:



Photo: Trampoline Dodgeball!

Title: "If you thought Bubble Soccer looked stupid..."

Description: For everyone who ever thought dodgeball didn't have enough leaping and jumping, it has officially been super-sized. What the bubble did for the game of soccer, the trampoline has now done for dodgeball. Tired of those boring dodgeball matches where no one pirouettes through the air? Not anymore!

Watch a trampoline dodgeball YouTube clip and then you tell me, is this terribly stupid or secretly awesome?

Where did this come from? What ha... happened?


DAN:
Wow. Color me impressed because this is secretly awesome!!

I'm a closet dodgeball fan, as in I think its super fun to play even if I haven't played since high school. There are a ton of leagues in Los Angeles, but moving on. Dodgeball is cool, you get to bean people with giant rubber balls and this is the point! Throw in a trampoline and I'm sold. Can we make this a drinking game too, like softball?

But as to what happened, or how this absurd idea of a competition ever came to light, its rather simple. I credit this gloriously evil game to a fancy pants gym teacher in Texas. Why Texas? Because everything in Texas is big, crazy and wild! Yee Hah! Anyways, so there was dodgeball. You hit people, get hit and the world turns. Then there was the trampoline. Its for jumping. This man (its a man because no woman cares to make something stupid more challenging) found dodgeball too easy and the trampoline too lady like. He strapped on his Texas sized hat, grabbed a big rubber ball and started jumping. Several hours later and we had Trampoline Dodgeball!

Either that happened, or a bunch of drunk frat boys broke into the gymnasium and the rest was history.

"For some, this is Sport" - What ha... happened (October Part one)


"For some, this is Sport" - What ha... happened (October Part one)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (10-14-13)



"What ha... happened," where we scour the internet for a crazy sports photo or GIF and someone must try to explain it. Seesaw Sports asks what ha... happened? Monday: Opening statement. Friday: Rebuttal.

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?



DAN:
This month I'm back with a vengeance and found something barely passable as sport. More than what happened, you tell me, what the hell is really going on.

I present to you the following:





Photo: Apparently this is 'Bubble Football' or 'Bubble Soccer' for us Americans

Title: "For some, this is Sport"

Description: I understand the name, I really do. But I refuse to call this a sport. It goes against the very fabric of sports. The players can not even see. WTF! Is this some bad joke? An American's idea to make soccer palpable? What the hell is this?

What ha... happened?


TODD:
I am sorely disappointed in you my brother. Not only is bubble soccer (apparently) played in front of tens of hundreds of fans at whatever local middle school gymnasium that picture is from. It is also played regularly on a little show called Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Jimmy's played matches against Stephen Colbert and Gerard Butler. He's played with members of the Baltimore Ravens and members of the Wu Tang Clan. Bubble Soccer is a talk show phenomenon on the level of Headlines and the Masturbating Bear. It also seems pretty legit.

What better way to improve soccer than to make players lose their balance easier? It's not like you could use your hands in the first place; it's soccer! Bubble soccer is big time. I can only imagine what's in store next. Perhaps bubble wrestling or bubble karate. If we shrunk down the bubble size, we could even venture into bubble bowling and bubble volleyball territory, with ones' hands permanently stuck below the bubble in the former and above the bubble in the latter.

"Liars & Cheats* get Love too" - What ha... happened (August Part two)


"Liars & Cheats* get Love too" - What ha... happened (August Part two)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (8-30-13)

[Part one - "Hey. Hey guys. Guess what the bat represents!"]



"What ha... happened," where we scour the internet for a crazy sports photo or GIF and someone must try to explain it. Seesaw Sports asks what ha... happened? Monday: Opening statement. Friday: Rebuttal.

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?



TODD:
Alex Rodriguez playing with his bat was great and all, but how about actual, sincere love from other human beings. Caught on camera no less. More GIFs baby!

I present to you the following:




Photo: A-Rod the... jovial?

Title: "Liars and cheats get love too"

Description: At some point, in some instance in his long career, teammates were rather fond of Alex Rodriguez. This may have been the only incident, but Andruw Jones and Robbie Cano seem to be having a...dare I say...good time with Rodriguez. A-Rod even seems to be playing along, feigning surprise and acting like a normal guy would while kidding around with buddies. How neat!

Will this ever happen again or will we look back in 30 years and find this GIF as the only remaining evidence that Alex Rodriguez was ever liked by anybody?

What ha... happened?


DAN:
You see the glass half full, teammates loving on Alex and having a good time WITH him. Not so my friend. Rather naive if you ask me. Let me tell you what went down.

Andruw Jones tricked Mr. Cano with the whole "let me draw your house in your palm" trick which always ends with an extra large swimming pool of spit in the hand. Andruw's chuckling and Robbie has a hand full of loogie. The only thing to do is pass on the prank to his buddy Alex. He casually rubs the spit on A-rod's shoulder, then hugs him as a distraction. A hug is always surprising, but especially for A-rod. Notice how Cano wipes off his hands at the end. He's cleaning away the rest of the evidence. Case closed and prank dismissed.

As for your other question, I have a funny answer and a real answer.

Real answer: Alex Rodriguez will get TONS of love from teammates and fans alike when he starts breaking baseball records. I don't care how much you hate him, breaking records and setting new ones is super cool. Whichever team he's on, his teammates will love him for it and look up to him as one of the all time greats. They understand how the game works. And fans, they'll love the spectacle if nothing else.

Fun answer: Since the GIF is obviously a prank caught on tape, its no real evidence of love. I'd venture to say love is returned when given and A-rod gives himself the most love of anyone. My first GIF brought this to light, but we all know about the centaur painting. He loves himself way too much to ever get a real public display of affection from another person.

DAN:
The Alex Rodriguez crying photo is pretty awesome, but its only a warm up. An insightful cover for the sweet stuff inside. We got GIFs baby!

I present to you the following:




Photo: Nice and easy A-rod

Title: "Hey. Hey guys. Guess what the bat represents!"

Description: Are you familiar with Alex Rodriguez? The third baseman for the New York Yankees? He's been in the news a bit lately. Something about PED allegations, a ban by Major League Baseball, an appeal to MLB which has allowed him to continue to play for the New York Yankees and a potential lawsuit against the Yankees themselves for screwing him over with their doctors. Then he got hit by a pitch, hit a home run, dropped his lawsuit and now...

Oh good, you have heard. Well A-rod seems to be enjoying his time with the bat here. I wonder what he's thinking. I wonder who or what the bat represents to him. Why Alex; why are you man handling your wood like that?

What ha... happened?


TODD:
As hilarious as this might be, I feel like Alex Rodriguez has been taking too much heat. Enough heat to bring any man to tears, or a fit of passion with the bat.

I know it is an awful lot of fun to hate on the guy, but we've gone over the line. He's not evil; he hasn't hurt or injured others off the field. He has never gotten into legal trouble per say, other than going against baseball's own rules. And those rules seem kind of arbitrary and shallow to begin with. Why are some performance-enhancing actions legal and others are not? Alex is not the villain you want him to be and his fun time waiting on deck exemplifies this.

A true villain doesn't rub so hard. A-Rod is getting slammed all over and it doesn't seem warranted. Bud Selig tried to suspend him a year and a half for a violation that already has a set penalty of a 50 game suspension. Something doesn't add up! I don't like to be a Rodriguez supporter, but like the wood he's stroking, I'm with him for now.

If Alex Rodriguez was not A-rod, rather someone we previously liked, it would be interesting to see what penalty this situation would have warranted. If all the details were the same except the name of the player, I think Selig would have issued a much more reasonable suspension...which seems absolutely ludicrous! Imagine a professional sports commissioner airing out personal grievances against a player by slamming him with harsher penalties. It sounds like something out of the WWE.

So what happened? Alex has baseball by its balls and he's going to town on their bat.

"Kids love Soccer too" - What ha... happened (July Part two)


"Kids love Soccer too" - What ha... happened (July Part two)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (7-25-13)

[Part one - There are fans and there are FANS]



One day early this week! Off next week and back with football in August.

"What ha... happened," where we scour the internet for a crazy sports photo and someone must try to explain it. Seesaw Sports asks what ha... happened? Monday: Opening statement. Thursday: Rebuttal.

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?



TODD:
I present to you the following.

Photo: Kicking things up even further... soccer style.

Title: "Kids love soccer too!"

Description: You take your ambiguous photo of adults pretending to be fans and I'll stick with the children. Kids always say what is on their mind. No sugarcoating necessary. And here is a perfect example. When a call goes against this little tyke, he shows the ref what he thinks of him. And if I spoke whatever language the little guy is fluent in (because it is obviously not English since he is a soccer fan), I'm sure I would get an earful of perfectly eloquent foreign swearing. Just adorable.

He's mad at the refs, right? Not one of those racist soccer hooligans in its early stages, bombarding black players with slurs? We can all appreciate a fan spewing hate at a man wearing stripes, but otherwise we have to draw the line. You tell me though, what ha... happened?


DAN:
I have to hand it to you, this little tyke is definitely a tiny terror. Logic would dictate he's imitating his father, who must be thrusting both middle fingers in the air while spitting on the heads of the opposing fans sitting in front of him. Right? This is beyond any logic. This kid be crazy!

This deranged soccer fan is not imitating anyone, he's full on pissed at the red card being dolled out on the field. And you know what came next. He launched his juice box as far as his baby arms could throw it, plucking the opposing team's coach in the head. And the blood on his face? War paint baby, war paint.

When getting into a soccer brawl, I recommend having one of these tiny pricks on your side. His head is at crotch level, perfect for a sneak attack head butt to the groin. Got him! His last victim was a bleeder.

"There are fans and there are FANS" - What ha... happened (July Part one)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (7-22-13)



We partied really hard at the wedding this weekend, so its fitting to follow up with "What ha... happened." Ah, memories. Part two will come early on Thursday and a hiatus next week for the honeymoon. Woo!

"What ha... happened," where we scour the internet for a crazy sports photo and someone must try to explain it. Seesaw Sports asks what ha... happened? Monday: Opening statement. Thursday: Rebuttal.

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?



DAN:
I present to you the following.

Photo: Let's kick things up a notch. There are fans and there are FANS.

Title: "Women love baseball too!"

Description: I'm not saying its love and devotion, but its the only explanation I could come up with. Well, silly me, that's your job. Full on french kissing the Phillies' mascot. Check! Sexy in doing so. Check check! Having the Philly Phanatic make you his bitch. Unintended consequence?

You tell me. What ha... happened?


TODD:
I have to tell you, you are way off on this. You missed all the warning signs too. A female baseball fan this devoted seems fishy. But one who would root for the Phillies is downright improbable. What happened was this poor soul lost a bet.

Most people bet for money or for some kind of reimbursement. If you win, I get a week in your summer home but if I win...etc. It is just as feasible though that people would bet their bodies, for lack of a better phrase. Loser has to get a very embarrassing tattoo! Or, loser has to go to second base with the Philly Phanatic. This woman has rounded first and is well on her way to a double.

To add insult to injury, this clear loser had to do so in Phillies garb and then had to attend an actual Phillies baseball game. So, so sad.

At least whoever they lost the bet to didn't make them go to Citi Field. That would have been going too far.

"Not all Swords are created Equal" - What ha... happened (June part two)


"Not all Swords are created Equal" - What ha... happened
(June part two)
by Dan Salem and Todd Salem (6-21-13)

[Part one - "Kick save and a Beauty"]



We scour the internet for a crazy sports photo and someone must try to explain it. Seesaw Sports asks what ha... happened? Monday: Opening statement. Friday: Rebuttal.

Real photos. Real results. But what in the heck happened?

This month we have GIFs!



DAN:
I present to you the following:


Photo: Fencing can be dangerous too.

Title: "Not all Swords are created Equal"

Description: When holding a grudge, its best to have a fencing match coming up. Who knew? But seriously, how bogus is it to swap out your toy sword for a real, large, sharp one? That's like wearing brass knuckles inside your boxing gloves, except you aren't hiding a thing. You're outright brandishing the thing. Take that!

This is no fair fight, its a slaughter. Why the foul play, the bloodshed and the tears? What ha... happened?


TODD:
Wait, so this is not what fencing looks like? Having never watched the "sport" before, I just assumed the guy with the bigger sword always won. And what's all this talk about not using brass knuckles during a boxing match? There hasn't been a clean boxing match since 1964. Everyone knows it's not on the level. They watch for entertainment; it's like professional wrestling. Which is what fencing seemed like: two guys with giant swords, swinging wildly at each other. It would have to be fixed or people would die, like, all the time.

I really have to bone up on my fringe sports' rules. So no giant scimitars allowed in fencing, check. No brass knuckles in boxing, check. Next thing you'll tell me is teams are not allowed to use motors during the America's Cup; they just somehow float down the water at tremendous speed on the strength of the wind alone...like a soft, sea zephyr could shove a giant yacht around. Gimme a break.
