2011 MLB Predictions Rewind

Early in the baseball season Corky and I made our predictions for the year.  We chose MVPs, Cy Youngs, ROTYs and playoff results.  Obviously, this is tough to do and rarely everything comes out as predicted, which is why baseball is so great.  Nothing ever happens how it should.  Lets take a gander back at our predictions and report the actual results.  In this article we will show our picks, their stats for the season, their votes in each award, the actual winners and their stats.

Corky’s 100 Favorite Sports Movies

This is a list of my 100 personal favorite sports movies of all time.  I am simply ranking these movies based on the entertainment value they have in my eyes.  This includes how good the story line is, acting quality, the sports accuracy, humor, and re-watch-ability.  My list basically comes down to how much the movie entertained me, and if I will be able to watch it multiple times.

Zorbing Anyone?!

Ever been Zorbing before??  Ever heard of Zorbing before?  If you haven’t, you can thank me later.  Zorbing, or Globe Riding, is a sport or activity that was created in New Zealand where you roll down a large hill in a huge inflatable ball!  I recently tried Zorbing and it was incredible.  The ball is about 10 feet in diameter and built of clear plastic.  The ball is filled with air so it is safe and bouncy.  It has another smaller inner-orb that is about 6 feet in diameter.  That is where the riders go.
