    This is a must-watch for any baseball fan. America's pastime gets full "The Wizard of Oz" treatment here for a rare look at old-timey baseball bursting with color. This footage of the 1939 Fall Classic between the New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds starts with the conclusion of Game 1, and features a home run from Game 2 and sweeping shots of the original Yankee Stadium decked out in red, white and blue bunting. This is a totally different brand of baseball than what we're accustomed to these days as fans, dressed up in their Sunday finest, can just wander aimlessly onto the field once the final out is secured. If you don't get goosebumps watching this, you're not American. (Or maybe you're just a Red Sox fan.)

    So, the Kings blanked the Devils, 4-0, in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final last night, and they're now just one win away from sweeping New Jersey and capturing the franchise's first Stanley Cup. Even in a league with so much parity among the playoff teams, it's incredible that an eight seed could be one win away from a championship. And the way the Kings have steamrolled their way through these playoffs has been downright historic: This is the fourth-straight series in which they've taken a 3-0 lead, and if they win Game 4 on Wednesday night, they'd match the run of 1988 Oilers, who set the modern record by going 16-2 en route to their fourth Cup in five years.

    How dominant have the Kings been? They've still played three fewer games than the Rangers, who, we'll remind you, were eliminated in the Conference Finals. Games 1 and 2 of this Final were hardly blowouts - both of those games ended in overtime, in fact - but last night was the kind of statement game that gives you the impression that it didn't much matter which team the Eastern Conference sent to the Final. The Kings have just been that good.

    And, of course, much of the credit goes to Jonathan Quick, the inevitable Conn Smythe winner (sorry, Anze), who, last night, recorded his third shutout of the playoffs. He lowered his postseason goals against average to a ridiculous 1.36 last night, and his .950 save percentage is the best of any goalie with more than three games played in these playoffs. Those are some historically good numbers. Puck Daddy has compiled Quick's five best saves of the night, and we'll note that the majority of those came when the outcome of the game was still in doubt. Quick wasn't the only reason Los Angeles won last night - that game might have looked different if the New Jersey power play could have done anything -but he's the biggest reason they are where they are right now.

    Having said all of that, the Kings still need one more victory to close this series out, and as the old saying goes, the hardest game to win is the last one. And if we've learned anything about the Devils in these playoffs, it's that they're a resilient team. Maybe Ilya Kovalchuk, who insists that his back is fine, will start producing. But the way Quick and his teammates are playing, the Kings' coronation seems almost inevitable, doesn't it?

  • In a few years, you may be the one on "the pill."

    Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have identified a gene responsible for an essentialphase of sperm development. The discovery is an early but very important step toward the creation of a male contraceptive similar to the daily pill you're always worrying your wife or girlfriend forgot to take. (How does the pill affect her sex drive? Find out in 39 Things Women Wish You Knew.)

    The gene, which scientists are calling "Katnal1," is responsible for a late stage of sperm maturation. What does that mean? If the Katnal1 genetic pathway is disrupted, your gun is locked and loaded but you'll shoot blanks.
    As of today, the researchers have shown that injecting a virus designed to disrupt the Katnal1 pathway effectively renders mice infertile but not impotent, explains study author Lee Smith, Ph.D., a genetic endocrinologist at U. of Edinburgh. Human studies are next in line, he says. (Conduct your own human experiment tonight by trying one of these New Sex Positions!)

    The ultimate goal is to develop a drug that will temporarily and reversibly disrupt Katnal1's genetic pathway--a male birth control. However, Smith says that sort of contraceptive is likely 5 to 10 years away. The discovery may also prove helpful in identifying new therapies for men suffering from infertility related to the Katnal1 gene, he adds.

    Until then, your best bet: Wrap it up. Here are our picks for the 4 Best-Feeling Condoms.

    A man's home is his castle, incomplete without a wet bar stocked with all the potables necessary to satiate a king and his court. And king among spirits is single-malt Scotch whisky, the top-shelf showpiece by which his bar is judged. It's a work of craftsmanship and art that frequently commands a price that far exceeds the sum of its malt.

    Keep that in mind before you scoff at the $2,750 per bottle asking price of The Macallan's soon-to-be-released very-limited-production run of single-cask single malts dubbed the Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition. There will be 1,000 bottles total available of four different single-cask Macallan vintage Scotches, each adorned with an Annie Leibovitz photograph on the label and accompanied by a print signed by the photographer.

    The star subject of the famed Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair portraitist's series is Scottish actor Kevin McKidd. You'll recognize him from the delightful cult sci-fi/horror flick Dog Soldiers and the well-sexed HBO series Rome; your lady friends will recognize him from Grey's Anatomy. Previous installments of The Macallan photography series have featured Scottish Polaroid specialist Rankin ($1,300 per bottle) and Scottish nude photographer Albert Watson ($1,000 to $16,000 each). To have a chance at purchasing one of the Leibovitz rarities (justify the price by chalking it up to supporting a starving artist), you'll have to preregister at themastersofphotography.com.

    "The Gallery" comes from Sherry Butt cask No. 12,251. Made in 1989, it's perfumed with burnished oak accented with orange and dates. The fruit and raisin flavors border on sweet, but the finish stays dry.



    "The Bar" was made in 1991 and resided in Sherry Oak Puncheon cask No. 7,023 until it was bottled. Nutmeg and clove come to mind on the nose, with oaky cinnamon rounding out the smooth finish.



    By far the lightest of the four special-edition Macallans, "The Skyline" was made in 1996 and aged in American Oak cask No. 10,019. The nose offers fresh-cut wood, lemon and vanilla aromas, with mouthcoating oak, cinnamon and toffee on the palate.



    "The Library" is the most exclusive of the foursome, with just 145 bottles made from Sherry Oak Hoghead cask No. 14,007. Made in 1995, it offers aromas of raisin, citrus and oak with toasted, dried fruits on the palate.

    The internet is full of fake videos and images. This brutal attack on a defenseless reporter just trying to get an interesting story is not one of them. This is very real and very graphic. Please watch with caution.

    So the Miami Heat may be choking away yet another playoff series that they should win easily, but that doesn't matter to this young fan. As LeBron James and the other disappointed Heatles slowly trudge off the court and into the locker room, one young boy encourages them to keep their heads up by screaming, "Good job! Great effort!" Hopefully those friendly encouragements will be enough to keep LBJ and the Heat happy through another off-season without a championship.

    In full-on fire-and-brimstone mode this morning, Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski pronounces that after the Heat's their stunning 94-90 Game 5 loss to the Celtics last night, we are close to seeing "a modern basketball superpower dismantled before everyone's eyes." We're not sure this is true, though. Even if the Heat lose tomorrow night and the Celtics - the Celtics! The team most were calling to be torn down at the trading deadline; the team the Knicks were knocking around late in the year - go to the NBA Finals, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh will still have four more chances at a title. (Unless they all opt out two years from now, and boy, wouldn't that be something?)

    If Miami loses, we suspect Erik Spoestra will be fired and a new coach will come in, but Miami will still have the best record in the Eastern Conference in 2012-13, and we'll all go through this same drama a year from now. Not that it doesn't remain delicious fun to watch this continue to happen, even if it requires watching Kevin Garnett go all wack-a-doodle again to make it happen. There are many NBA fans whose primary rooting interest this season - and last season and next season - is to make sure the Miami Heat don't win the title. They're one game away from getting their wish.

    If you crave the open air out on the road and a convertible just isn't cutting it anymore, you should try a wheelchair. Just make sure it's your wheelchair, otherwise you could find yourself in some trouble.

    Police in Utica, MI were called to a senior living complex on May 27, where Raymond Kulma had apparently gotten into a face-off with James Konkel, a resident of the complex. Authorities showed up to question the two men, but only found one of them at the scene. That's because Kulma had fled the premises in a motorized wheelchair that he stole from Konkel.

    Police officers took off in lukewarm pursuit and the low-speed chase ended with a sobriety test. Kulma failed his test with flying colors, blowing three times the legal limit, earning a free night in prison and a warrant for his arrest once he was released.

    This was Kulma's seventh drunk driving offense and he hasn't had a license since 1993. He will be charged as though he was operating a car and currently has 10 days to turn himself in. Here's hoping he surrenders to authorities and does not try to make a run for it on a Segway. See the video below:

    New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is known to have dated some of the hottest women in the world (there are numerous lists on the Internet ranking some of his most attractive ex's.) Luckily for all of us, there's JeterMatch.com, the "official" dating website that places all those lonely Derek Jeter ex girlfriends with new mates (and believe us, there are a lot of them.)

    As the website says, "Derek Jeter may be a shortstop, but you can still have his seconds." You may be thinking to yourself, "But I'm not as good looking as Derek Jeter." Well, no worries! Each membership comes with a free Derek Jeter mask.

    And while this dating service isn't real (it was created by comedian Owen Weber), we think it should be.

    Think this is crazy? Check out these photos:

    Last weekend, Kanye West stopped performing during a live show in Paris to call out a fan who kept distracting him with a laser pointer. We have uncovered never-before-seen footage from the incident:


    Kanye then went on a rant in front of 60,000 fans, "Don't f*** with the lasers back there. You see this guy here with the green laser? Don't f*** with anybody's show! It's not a f***ing game! We don't f*** around like that...you might get f***d up and kicked out, I don't want that s***. So chill the f*** out."

    Afterwards, Kanye finished the remainder of the show, pooped in a litter box, then called it a night.

    Mrs. Doubtfire (Recut) from Peter Javidpour on Vimeo.

    When you think about it the plot of Mrs. Doubtfire, it could easily have been something closer to "Psycho" than the family comedy it was starring Robin Williams. Luckily, this recut of the trailer shows us just how great of a movie we missed out on.
