“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver explains the class system of English soccer to Dave.

Theoretically, if we live in a world where life was fair, and there were consequences to sports failure…..

* You gotta love this guy John Oliver. His takes are legendary and the dude is ridiculously funny. I loved the banter between him and David on last nights show. I’ll be honest, I’ve never watched his show on HBO, but I’ve seen every one of his viral rants on the youtube and whomever his writers are, he has some of the best perspectives out there.

( H/t to Brian Zygo )

ICYMI, his 13 minute FIFA rant is the stuff of legend.

Jon Yarbrough :: From One Foosball Table to BILLIONAIRE

Filed under: Cool Ish, Money

yarbrough forbes

This story is nothing short of incredible. From time to time, here on TOW, we post something from the latest forbes rich persons list – we’ve done DJ’s, Hip Hop dudes, team owners, but this is a great story. This guy, a newcomer to this years Forbes 400 aka, the 400 richest people in the United States, there is a cat called Jon Yarbrough whose story is something anyone reading here on TOW can relate too.

Apparently, his wealth all started with one foosball table when he was in college:

Before becoming a video game entrepreneur, Yarbrough was a college student trying to earn an engineering degree at Tennessee Tech. “I started playing a lot of foosball, in tournaments,” Yarbrough recalls, “and then I got an internship at NASA, working on the Viking probes.” Upon his return from his internship in California, with a new foosball table he bought to keep practicing, the entrepreneurial spirit kicked in.

“When I came back from California, I wasn’t thinking about starting a business,” he tells Forbes. Rather, with limited room where he was living, he needed a place to store the foosball table. A local saloon owner agreed to keep it for him as long as they split the quarters. “After the first week, I took out the cash box and found $200; I had paid $500 for the table,” recalls Yarbrough, “So I bought more foosball tables, took out school loans, and eventually got into video games. I purchased Space Invaders….”

This is one of the best “how-I-got-rich” stories I’ve ever read.

Now, obviously, the guy is probably brilliant (hello, NASA) and an extremely shrewd businessman, because you don’t get to being a billi without having the chops, but its great that his story started out so innocently.

And with a game that from time to time all of us has played and played a lot.

I’m going to go out on a limb and just automatically make him a member of BPFC LA, the Bumpy Pitch Foosball Club Los Angeles….

If you are reading this Mr. Yarbrough, let us know what size shirt you wear, we might have to do a fresh run and send you a few of our BP Foosball Club shirts. Lettuceknow.

There is a lot more to his story, make sure you check it out at FORBES.com

Liam Neeson returns as ex-covert operative Bryan Mills, whose reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.

TAK3N stars Liam Neeson, Forest Whitaker, Famke Janssen, and Maggie Grace. Also starring are Dougray Scott, Sam Spruell, Leland Orser

In Theaters – January 9, 2015

* This trailer is perfect.

In this trailer, Forest says, quote, If you go down this road, the LAPD, the FBI, the CIA, they’re all going to come for you… unquote. How ridiculous is that! I love it.

I don’t ask for much from movies. Movies rarely change my life, but there are specific things I need from specific movies. I need my PTA movies to be more ridiculously insane every time around. I need my Fast and Furious movies to be Faster and more Furiouser with better cars and horrible dialog every time around. I need my Taken and Bourne type of movies to have more throat punches and more heads thrown through more glass every time around.

I think they’ve upped the throat punch count, and thats all that matters. I can’t wait. Take my money now.

The Whiskey Wedge By Corkcicle

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle

Whiskey Wedge

With the Whiskey Wedge, now you can keep your favorite spirits chilled without watering them down. Each unit comes with one Double-Old Fashioned Whiskey Glass and one silicone mold. Simply add water into the double old fashioned glass, insert the mold, then freeze. The ice forms into a wedge and, similar to a glacier, melts slowly due to the reduced amount of surface area.
Drink with your favorite liquor, liqueur or cocktail for all the taste advantages of “on the rocks”. It’s the perfect gift for any whiskey, bourbon, scotch, or tequila drinker.

~~  Simple, yet brilliant….

Feyenoord v Ajax – One Take Shot

Filed under: Ajax, Culture & Lifestyle, Holland, Technology

Feyenoord-Ajax One-take shot Fox Sports 21.9.2014 from Ben de Graaf on Vimeo.

Sports are not always shot in the most beautiful manner. Maybe they don’t need to be. Or maybe that is not usually the focus. Whatever the case is, Fox Sports TV Director: Job Robbers and Cameraman: Ben de Graaf nailed things with this one take shot of the opening sequence that takes place before kickoff. Shot with a MoVi steadicam, and captured this pre-match moment in a really beautiful and captivating way. As sports and technology continue to collide, we may very well be seeing more shots like this of soccer going forward.
