This is a video of billiard player Shane Van Boening sinking six balls on the break of a game of ten-ball. The commentators speculate he’s going to make three, but no, he doubles that. For reference, the most balls I’ve ever made on a break is probably two. MAYBE three.
This is a video of Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Jonathan David making a spectacular diving catch at the outfield wall, going headfirst into the padding and popping his hat off in the process. Nice work! Related: I used to drink a lot of Milwaukee’s Best Ice. Probably too much.
