Freeride Ski Fail Video – Never Follow Another Skiiers Path (Telluride Colorado Skiing)

March 30, 2014 at 6:40 PM ET – You’ve probably heard the expression to not “stray from the beaten path,” but in the case of one skier in Colorado, it would have paid off to avoid where others have gone before. A new video reveals footage shot by a skier as he descends a snow-covered mountain in Telluride, Colorado. He carefully avoids several small trees, but comes to a horrible realization as he approaches what appears to be a gently rising slope.

According to the Telluride Ski Patrol, the skier ended up with only a minor shoulder injury. Watch the video:

Raw Video – 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist Interrupts Malcolm Smith Super Bowl 48 Press Conference

February 2, 2014 at 11:55 PM ET – A 9/11 conspiracy theory “truther” dashed on stage as Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith was conducting a post-game Super Bowl XLVIII press conference, before seizing the player’s microphone and declaring “9/11 was perpetrated by our own government.”

Smith had just been named MVP of Super Bowl 48, and was noticeably confused by the surprise appearance of the flannel-shirt-wearing conspiracist. News website reported that the man apparently had a press pass to attend the post-game interviews, and was immediately escorted out of the room following the incident.

It wouldn’t be the first time that the events that took place 9/11 were mentioned in the same sentence as the Seattle Seahawks. According to a June 2013 Deadspin story on Pete Carroll, the Seahawks coach was allegedly skeptical of whether or not the September 11 attacks were real, or faked by the United States government. Watch the video of the post-game conference featuring the as-yet-unidentified conspiracy theorist.

Reaction Video & GIF – Peyton Manning Misses Snap Super Bowl 48 Safety Fail Face

February 2, 2014 at 6:47 PM ET – It was one of the fastest scores made in Super Bowl history, but not quite as anyone had planned it. With 14:48 left in the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning watched in horror as the missed snap sailed past his head and into the end zone. The ball was recovered by a Bronco’s player and downed for a safety, adding two points to the Seattle Seahawks scoreboard.

Let’s hope that Manning’s missed snap has no connection to Colorado’s recent legalization of marijuana. I kid, I kid.

Fail Video – Doctor Shukri David Predicts Patriots Super Bowl Win

February 1, 2014 at 10:00 PM ET – When it comes to the Superbowl, most football fans have a prediction as to who will take home the win. There are bad predictions, and then there are extremely bad predictions, such as picking a team that’s not even competing in the Big Game. One such fail made on live television was by Dr. Shukri David, a cardiologist at Providence Hospital in Southfield, Michigan.

The physician appeared on Fox2 news in Detroit to Saturday to offer healthy eating tips for people watching the Super Bowl this Sunday. When asked by the show host as to who he predicted as the winner of the game, Dr. David went with the New England Patriots. The only problem is that the Patriots lost in the playoffs to the Denver Broncos, who were facing off against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48 tomorrow. The Fox2 host noticeably tried to throw the good doctor a lifeline to save face, but nothing could reverse the cringe-worthy doubling down on his prediction.

“Don’t blame me, I offered him a life preserver.”
