Tyler Seguin, Human Golf Tee

Some people think you've got to be a little nutty to play hockey professionally.

Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars proved that theory true when he laid down at his own golf tournament, and let a golfer tee off from Tyler's crotch.

He was wearing a special cup with the tee attached, but still…

The speed of a good golf swing can reach up to 100 mph. One small calculation, and he's singing soprano for a long time.

Watch the video. The shot was dead on, and Tyler reports that it tickled…

"Game of Thrones" Gets Sort of Real

If you're a Throniac, you'll recall that England's Queen Elizabeth II visited the set of Game of Thrones a month or so ago, but declined sitting on the Iron Throne of Westeros.

Last week, the Queen's Guards made up for that slight by performing the theme from Game of Thrones during the changing of the guard.

Pretty cool to hear... I wonder how many people checked their GPS units to make sure they were still in London and not King's Landing.

Where Would They Be Without Their iPhones?

Kim Kardashian hit the 16-million follower mark on Instagram, and celebrated by posting this picture of herself in a bikini.



Meanwhile, sister Khloe jumped into a bubble bath with sister Kourtney's boyfriend – apparently for a press conference? Otherwise, you figure out what the microphone is for…



All of which raises an interesting question: if it weren't for iPhones, would the Kardashians even exist?

Farewell, James Garner

Film and television actor James Garner passed away of the weekend at the age of 86.

He spent over five decades on TV and in movies, frequently playing comedic roles, but sometimes tackling serious parts as well.

He'll likely be best remembered for his early TV work on Maverick, or perhaps the 70's series, The Rockford Files.

But he was a great pitchman too, as you can see from this 80's era commercial for Polaroid.

That's back when cameras actually used film.

Space History Remembered

It was 45 years ago yesterday that Neil Armstrong became the first man ever to step foot on the surface of the Moon.

Or, if you're a conspiracy theorist, the first to fake stepping on the Moon.

Let's go with the former, shall we?

It was a magical time in the summer of '69, with just about everyone with a television set watching the live broadcast from space as Armstrong leapt from the ladder of the lunar module and planted a flag on the Moon's surface, uttering the words that have been memorized by so many: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

These days, Armstrong would have taken a selfie video and posted it to Instagram.

Ah, nostalgia…

Johny Depp Jams with Aerosmith

Concertgoers last Wednesday outside of Boston got double their entertainment value when Johnny Depp joined Aerosmith on stage at the Comcast Center for "Train Kept a-Rolling."

He didn't just stand there – he played along with them on guitar, and even took the solo lead for a short bit.

This isn't Johnny's first appearance with Aerosmith – he joined them onstage at the Hollywood Bowl back in 2012, and did some backup vocals on their album, "Music From Another Dimension."

Still, a great treat for those in attendance.

Is That a Chihuahua Gigante

The Chihuahuas of El Paso are a minor league affiliate of the San Diego Padres. On August 3, they'll be hosting Bark at the Park, a special fundraising event.

The jerseys they'll wear that night – which will be auctioned off afterwards – feature a very large face of a mildly menacing Chihuahua.

Can you imagine the first baseman for their opponent not having a great day and not really paying attention, and suddenly seeing a gigantic Chihuahua charging at him?

Yeah, that could be a game changer.

Like Really, Do We Need Six Californias?

A venture capitalist from Silicon Valley announced on Tuesday that he has gathered enough signatures to put a measure on the ballot in California that would split the existing California into six separate states.

The idea makes perfect sense to him. With 38 million Californias, how can one central government possibly serve the people?
By creating separate states, the people would have better representation from a more local government, providing the opportunity to start fresh.

That's the theory. The six proposed states: Jefferson, Silicon Valley, North California, Central California, West California and South California.

Sounds like they ran out of steam in the naming department. With all the creative folks in Los Angeles – sorry, that's West California – you'd think they could have done a better job with the new map.

New Captain America Creates Void

On The Colbert Report the other night, Joe Quesada from Marvel Entertainment appeared to discuss the new Captain America.

The old Captain America has lost some of his powers and aged rapidly. So he's being replaced by his sidekick, Falcon.

This of course means that Falcon's job is open.

And if things go right, it looks like the guy who's filling Letterman's shoes might be filling a superhero's tights and wings as well… Check out the video.
