Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
An Irish man (as you can tell from the shamrock tattoo on his ass) brought the fine European tradition of full nude streaking to North America on Saturday.
The exhibitionists’ friends later showed off the man’s clothes and promised to start a GoFundMe to get him bailed out.
Ran into friends of the streaker outside of Safeco. They showed us his clothes. He decided to streak on the spot. He and friends visiting from Ireland - and friends said they are starting #GoFundMe page to help bail him out! #Mariners #Streaker #BlueJays pic.twitter.com/Vf8bSR6NYm— Shanel Pratap (@shanelpratap) August 5, 2018
But getting out of jail might not be the end of the streaker’s problems. He’s an Irish citizen but he lives in Vancouver, so he could be deported from Canada over the incident.
Update: according to my source with the King County Sheriff’s office, last night’s streaker is still incarcerated. Since he is an Irish national, he could now be deported. Charges are very serious. All this because I’m told his buddies bet him $80..— Hazel Mae (@thehazelmae) August 5, 2018
All that for $80? I hope it was at least at least American dollars—$80 Canadian is only $61 American.
Grills are so passé
Forget a grill—Odell Beckham went ahead and got diamonds implanted right in his teeth. Beckham’s dentist and jeweler collaborated to make a set of diamond-crusted veneers that ran OBJ about $5,000. And they’re totally permanent, so they’re not going anywhere unless Malcolm Jenkins knocks Beckham’s teeth out of his head.
Nooooo, not the poutine!
Tons and tons of Blue Jays fans came south of the border for this weekend’s series in Seattle, not just the streaker. Jays fans so outnumbered Seattle fans that Mariners pitcher Marco Gonzales likened it to an unwelcome visitor taking “a dump on our dining room table.”
With so many Canadians in town, the M’s embraced Hoser stereotypes with this poutine-themed between innings entertainment. I have a feeling the Mariners knew exactly how this would end, with the sight of so much precious poutine spoiled on the outfield grass causing the assembled Canadians to recoil in disgust. It was the Jays who got the last laugh, though, taking three games out of four.

Bill Belichick smiling will never not be weird
Almost as weird as seeing him at a Halloween party
Two incredible soccer goals from around the world
First, from Slovenia.
And here from South Africa.
James Franklin shows his ass
Usually it takes until an embarrassing loss in Week 3 or 4 for James Franklin to show his metaphorical ass.
Francisco Lindor is unreal
I don’t know if there’s a rapper I’d like to fight less than The Game
God bless Carlos Gomez
I love this almost as much as him apologizing to a water cooler.
Shoutout to the few dozen people in the crowd who were digging this
Putting out a fire with his boat
A good song
