Classic YouTube | Ryder Cup classics, Big Bird and the unstoppable eight-year-old

27th September 2012

This week’s round-up also includes a one-legged overhead kick, a diving motorcyclist and NFL poetry

1) It’s Ryder Cup week, so time to look back at some classic moments. There’s Mark Calcavecchia’s collapse in 1991; the final hole of that amazing competition; Seve, Sam Torrance and Harry Carpenter in 1985; Nick Faldo bringing it home with a majestic wedge in 1995; Corey Pavin cocking up his speech at Celtic Manor; and Sky Sports’ montage from Brookline in 1999, with Monty’s voice cracking BEFORE Europe lost their four-point lead. Finally, and though it has nothing to do with the Ryder Cup, here’s rare footage of Open legend Maurice Flitcroft.

2) Time for the usual football round-up. This bio-documentary about Ian Wright is highly recommended; we also have a Bergkampian goal from Dundalk’s Mark Griffin; a farcical own goal; Roberto Mancini and David Platt in a pizzeria; a stunning miss from Vagner Love; and the late John Bond in the 1981 documentary City!

3) A ridiculous touchdown run from Jayden Scott. Who is eight years old.

4) This deserves an entry of its own. Pimp My Ride – Djibril Cissé. And while we’re on the subject of footballers showing off their possessions, here’s Harry Kewell (and his very large bath) on MTV Cribs.

5) Be upstanding for the 10 worst deliveries in cricket history. And here is some true cricket porn: a whole hour – a whole hour – of wickets taken by the magnificent Joel ‘Big Bird’ Garner.

6) The Ohio University’s marching band do Gangnam Style.

Our favourites from last week’s blog

1) Whatever you do, DON’T PICK UP THE GRENADE.

2) If you thought diving was bad in football, then look at this clip, which gives a whole new meaning to motorcycling simulation.

3) An amazing bike change at the cycling world championship.

4) This is definitely the best overhead kick by a one-legged player we’ve ever seen. This is definitely the coolest Red Bull Street Style World Final – Girls Action Finale we’ve ever seen. And this is definitely the best goal-saving tackle from a physiotherapist we’ve seen.

5) “We’re looking for players, fans and heavy drinkers ...”: an idiot’s guide to rugby union. And here’s a cracking rugby league promo.

6) If you only listen to one piece of NFL poetry this week, make it this one.
