This is your Daily Turn Up – Wednesday & Thursday

Gardner catch

It’s a Wednesday in August. Caribana is over and Guardians of the Galaxy has just destroyed the box office. Marvel has started Spider-Verse and summer 2014 is almost over. It’s also 4:30 as I start this …. let’s see what else is newsworthy!

Paul Eyes

So basically it is 3:46 … wait did I go back in time? No it’s 3:46 no it’s not AM. It’s THURSDAY! So this is gonna be a combo of interesting stuff I came up on Hump Day and Throwback Day!

Beer Bashball

Hey while we are on that throwback tip, honestly where have the nWo B-Side been?


I think that also answered the question is Bill Apter still alive. The answer is no, his zombie is just that damn good.

Expendables and Transporter star Jason Statham was a high level diver for England. No, really he was:

Listen if you didn’t think Statham could be an Olympic caliber diver, would you believe Adam Dunn pitched in a game? 15-0…oh yeah that’s why.

Good Ol JR tels it like it is, after Sooner bashing on Raw

The Sandow/Mark Henry…OU vs. Texas bit in Austin, home of the Longhorns was neither entertaining nor did it have anything to do with Summer Slam. So why was it on the show? Was it a cheap shot at your’s truly? Surely not. JBL knocking my family’s BBQ products was a low blow but in the wrestling biz that it is called ribbing on the square and “all in good fun” which is a lame explanation. I did not see RAW live and watched it on our DVR but my twitter followers had alerted me of the announcers having fun at my expense or so they perceived. Perhaps some one actually thought the segment was entertaining and if that’s true that explains many things regarding today’s product.

Bahahaha Yes JR, you tell em!

Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant are NOT the same person, but dayum does this guy want you to think so:

Don’t call Jim Edmonds a dick while being a completely douchebag on Twitter. #dickmove.

I used to follow this weird but awkwardly funny chick on YouTube. Grace Helbig who rose to fame from her Daily Grace vlogs is now in talks to “replace” Chelsea Handler as the new E! Network talk show host??! I don’t think 13 yr old girls are allowed to stay up in that time slot. Did I really steadily watch a vlog traditionally targeted to fans of One Direction? Yes. Grace is funny, and she shakes her booty a lot. Well she haphazardly flings her waist once in awhile but it’s still visually (and comically) nice.

Google moved the Unsubscribed button to the top of emails!

There are all types of Royals Fan, those who follow the team casually and sing along to “Friends In Low Places”, those who follow more intently and cross-reference each pitch against the MLB Gameday pitch tracker…

And then there’s SungWoo Lee. Korean born and raised. And unabashed Royals Fan. SungWoo laughs at the 14 hour difference between Kansas City and Seoul, Korea, SungWoo’s home. He regularly watches games at 9am regularly via MLB.tv.

And he’s never been to a Royals game in person.

Cleveland Cavaliers traded away Canada for Love

The Kevin Love saga is nearing its merciful conclusion.

As expected, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly agreed on the principles of a multi-player, blockbuster trade for the All-Star forward.

The Cavs will send rookie Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a protected 2015 first-round draft pick to Minny in exchange for Love.

Slam Online!

So basically Cleveland just traded away the last two #1 overall draft picks and the ONLY 2 #1 picks ever from Canada to Minnesota for Kevin Love. If this gets them the title in 2015, then I guess it’s worth it, but those 2 GTA kids are going to wreck the league and will make Minnesota a play-off team for years after Cleveland’s latest get rich quick scheme fizzles out.

Jeremy Lin dunk

Jeremy Lin is my favourite Asian today

So what’s Jeremy Lin up to this offseason? Oh nothing, just hanging out at his house and pulling off well-orchestrated dunk cams on children, sleeping dudes, and his own damn mother.

Kim Jong-un is everyone’s (not me though, oh no no. uh in case I need to clear this up, I’m just reporting the news, and I don’t necessarily agree with such mockery of one such a regal leader.) new favourite Asian to make fun of….

Jung lube

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently visited the Chonji Lubricant Factory and was very, shall we say, “excited” — no, let’s go with “pleased” — by the lubricant-making machines he saw.

Reddit could not resist the slippery Photoshop opportunities that the picture afforded, creating the “Kim Jong-un lubricant meme.”

YES, I love you Internet.

“I didn’t force anything down anybody’s throat,” he says. Good point, James! “I didn’t make anybody stay here until 7:00 a.m. or 11 or whenever it is everybody finally left. I didn’t make this kid pass out on my floor.”

And that’s when it happens. The camera pans down, and holy sh*t there really is a kid just passed the f**k out on James’s floor right now.
