Video: The Human Sling Shot




We Have all seen the iconic human cannon ball act on TV or at a circus, but this is a whole new level of crazy. Chris "Douggs" McDougall set a new world record for base jumping with his human sling shot base jump for the 2012 World Skydiving Championships in Dubai. This takes some major stones and looks way more dangerous than a normal base jump. Check out Chris pull off this amazing stunt.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is under heat this week after the video of Baltimore Raven player Ray Rice surfaced of him assaulting his fiancee in a casino elevator. TMZ has reported that the NFL never asked for video footage of the incident and has tried to cover up the situation from the start. The NFL and Goddell have yet to comment on the matter but are taking shots left and right from every media source. How do you feel about Goodell handing down a ban to Rice only after the public had knowledge of the real story? Was this a cover-up on Goodell's part or do you believe that he never saw the footage?



Seat Williams was out at the new William Hill Sports Book inside the SLS Hotel and Casino last week to make some bets. The new book is incredible and a must see, and it even has an Umami Burger inside of it. William hill offers tons of different prop or parlay bets so there is something for every ones taste when it comes to sports bets. Make sure you stop by the new SLS on Sahara and Las Vegas Blvd to get in on the action.

The Baltimore Ravens have announced their release of Ray Rice after the video surveillance footage of him assaulting his fiancee in an elevator surfaced today. On the show today we asked listeners if Rice should be facing charges by the state for assault. Rice is clearly seen throwing a left hook that knocks his fiancee unconscious and then proceeds to drag her body out of the elevator. Anyone else not under celebrity status would have been arrested on the scene by police but Ray has evaded any kind of criminal charges. What do you think of Rice? Should he ever be aloud to play another game in the NFL?.

Here is the footage from the elevator. You be the judge on what Ray Rice deserves.

Week No.1 of the NFL was exciting and painful to watch all at the same time. Today on the show we talked about the Cowboys and the four turnovers that cost them the game. Tony Romo put up one of the poorest performances to date in his career, and did not look ready to play at all. How do you feel about the state of the Cowboys franchise? Is it time to look at a new QB?

Roger Goodell has announced that the NFL will keep the new officiating rules introduced during preseason for the remainder of the regular season. On the show today we asked listeners what they think of the new rules. Will Football become intolerable to watch with tons of penalties impeding the game play? Or are you ok with the new rules to keep the game safer for players?

The NFL season kicks off tonight with the Seahawks vs. Packers. The line is at -6 on Seattle on 47 for the total. Who do you have to win this matchup? On the show today it was a mixed opinion. Mitch likes Green Bay but not the spread, while Seat and Ed both would take Seattle to win. The majority of the room felt like the under was the smart play here. What do you think?



Tomorrow from 3-7pm at the Westgate 3000 Paradise Rd. is your last chance to register and win this awesome FRS from Findlay Toyota and ESPN 1100/98.9FM. We will be drawing the winner tomorrow around &pm PT. Don't miss your chance to drive away in this sweet ride. ESPN 1100/98.9FM will be on site with prizes as well. see you there!!

Free Plays For The NFL Weekend (Thursday Night Special)


For The First Time Since the 'Fail Mary' The Packers & Seahawks Meet
Photo via: 6th And Green

Finally! After months of waiting for football to return we are here! Tonight the NFL season kicks-off with what should be one of the best matchups of the season, and quite possibly a NFC Championship preview. I have decided to put my money where my mouth is and do a Cowherd-type 'Blazing Five' without the fancy nickname. In celebration of the NFL kickoff tonight I am putting my first pick as a single post and the rest for Sunday and Monday will be available tomorrow.

I guess it's time to put up or shut up, and I will keep a record of my picks, ATS of course, so we can all laugh at my record at the end of the season.

Pick 1: Green Bay (+6) vs Seattle Thu. 5:30 PM

2014 Record (ATS): 0-0

Betting against Seattle at home sounds like a terrible plan almost every time. Unless Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are rolling into town, then it sounds like there's a fighting chance.

A lot is being made of the situation at center for the Packers, and rightfully so. Fifth-round rookie Corey Linsley will get the start without ever having snapped Rodgers the ball in live action. In a loud stadium where Green Bay wants to run an up-tempo attack communication is going to be key. However, the Packers coaches have been ranting about Linsley's mental toughness, and maybe he might be ready for the spotlight.

On the Seattle side of things, another rookie makes his debut: right tackle Justin Britt for Seattle. In his NFL debut this young man has to face Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews on almost every snap. If Matthews and Peppers can't take advantage of a young tackle, which I doubt, it is going to be a long season.

I love the fact that a storyline is the 'Fail Mary' game from 2012. A game from two seasons ago, where Cedric Benson was the Packers' leading rusher with 17 carries for 45 yards. The Packers now boast a running game that is just as physical as any unit wants to be. This is a Seattle team that gave up 108 yards rushing to the Saints then 161 yards to the 49ers in the NFC Playoffs last season. Eddie Lacy doesn't need to have a dominant night to make this offense go, but if he can rack up an effective 100 yards on the ground that leaves one of the best quarterbacks in the league an option for some deadly play action.

There is no question last year Seattle had one of the most convincing Super Bowl campaigns since the Patriots in the early 2000's, but that was last year. This year they face a Packer team hungry for a title, and as talented on offense as they have been in recent years.

Taking the road team in Seattle might be frowned upon by some, but I like this Packer squad, and if anyone can do it, it's them.

Take the Pack plus the points.
