Here are two great time killers for those of you who aren't in the mood to do any work. This site has given you photos of 24 of the best-looking ladies who athletes have married and/or dated, and they want you to rank the top 14 by simply clicking and dragging the photo of said woman into the list they provide.

A few weeks back, we linked to a photo gallery of the worst seats in sports. Well, it looks like some took those photos and made a video out of it, and since everything's better with a catchy tune in the background, we had to post it. (Thanks to Jack Herbon, of Chicago, for the link.)
Mark V., of Miami, writes "Not particularly sports relevant, but cannot get over this clip with Jean Claude Van Damme -- it's like a train wreck." It sure is.
