All Star Ball Girl, Human Billboard and Sports Bloopers - Videos

We have some remarkable sporting feats and bloopers in both photos and videos today. Naturally some are obviously staged, but even the staged ones are exceptional. Now, most of these folks cannot be labeled as rednecks, but a handful can. See if you can guess which ones are the rednecks.

Imagine a human billboard with the participants playing either football or soccer, depending on what part of the world you live in. The location is somewhere in East Asia (who can tell Japanese writing from Chinese? Not I).
















It's not a new idea. Microsoft had a similar billboard for the opening of Microsoft Vista, and we even found a similar billboard in a movie musical from 1929. But believe that you need remarkable athletic ability to play soccer with your body parallel to the ground high above the streets below.

This type of stunt provides a mountain of publicity, as you can see from the crowds in the streets beneath the billboard. But this one qualifies as a "Don't do this at home." If you try it at home, we never heard of you.

No, no, no! You're supposed to hit the ball with the bat, not with your face. Well, at least that is a good start to our bloopers, although that had to hurt. But the best bloopers are on video, so let's take a look.

Our videos are all short, so try not to worry about your time commitment. The first one is a terrific example of an incredibly talented girl baseball player. Even Tori Hunter could not make this catch any better.



Hopefully, you caught on that the video is fake and is for an upcoming commercial. But real or fake, it was fun anyway.

The next video shows you a side of fatherhood that none of us aspire toward.



Oooh! Litle girl! If you only knew what you just did. I can really feel for that poor guy. You women will never know how incredibly painful that is.

Video No. 3 shows how juvenile delinquency can go so very wrong and never turns out the way you planned.



That kid was ever so lucky because he could have been burned so much worse. I remember doing some dumb things as a kid, but I was never that dumb.

Our final video proves that, despite the best of intentions, accidents do happen.



Now that is one understanding mother. How she ever learned to be that good natured is beyond belief.

Great stuff, McCafferty! HA HA!
You don't have to worry about me trying that billboard thing at home, I don't like high open places. I enjoyed the videos too!

Happy Fourth of July to you! :D

Thanks, Daisy. Since you are a mother, tell me how the mother in the final video keeps so calm after the kid breaks a TV that had to cost $600-$1,000 or more? Is she a saint or just rich?

Maybe she's rich, but I'm guessing she was just still in shock on the video. Like she hadn't quite realized what had happened yet. Perhaps, at first, she was just glad that the kids didn't get hurt in the process, but she probably reacted more strongly a little later. It would take a pretty penny to replace the TV, that's for sure!

Daisy,

Well, I don't know if that kid is too old for a spanking, but I think he needs one. But if kids like that didn't goof up, we wouldn't have as much to laugh at.

It is good to have things to laugh at, that's for sure! :D
