Mitchell and Boston Suck Equally, YTT26

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

We haven’t had a YouTube Tuesday since September? Lies!

Okay, maybe not lies, but it’s definitely a conspiracy. Just like that Mitchell Report. Go Yanks!

Going for a bike ride? Jagshemash!

I love baseball. I do. Most of my most exciting and crushingly depressing moments in sports revolve around my Yankees, but the summer of baseball is long. 82 days long, not that I’ve counted or anything. Thankfully though, there is a light at the end of the tunnel less than a week away. Seems like as good a YTT as any to peek in on the Tour de France. Yes, it’s as gripping as you thought it might be.

Steroids? Bad! Drowning All-Stars? Eh.

We’ll be starting this week’s YouTube Tuesday with a few facts care of Wikipedia.

  • Cable cars are about 12 feet tall
  • Cable cars weigh roughly 8 tons

RUWT? is all about being fair and balanced, so I’ll follow those up with some “facts” from my brain.

Given these indisputable truths, anyone see anything wrong with this commercial?

Tainted, YTT16

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007


  1. To affect with or as if with a disease.
  2. To affect with decay or putrefaction; spoil. See synonyms at contaminate.
  3. To corrupt morally.
  4. To affect with a tinge of something reprehensible.

The word taint seems to be everywhere in sports these days. You have players saying that Bonds’ run at Aaron is tainted, the ridiculous blackmail and child abuse soap opera that is the Landis trial, and even ESPN, that bastion of sports news, is raising eyebrows over how they try and win scoops.


So for today’s YouTube Tuesday, we’re going old school. We’re going pure. We’re going 8-bit. (via)

YouTube Tuesday Twelve

There are a lot of “T”s in that title, so it’s probably a good time for a YouTube Tuesday Two-fer.

With a tip of the cap to my love for advertising, here is a pair of two great Gatorade commercials. Instead of bastardizing classics, agencies should be giving us more like these. Fittingly, both spots are featuring players that need to start shouldering more of the load. Quick.
