Wow. Bonding time with children sure looks a lot different overseas!
This young man is Lebanon is standing on a beach with a man who appears to be his father, firing a ROCKET LAUNCHER! When we were kids, we asked for things like a Nerf gun, or maybe some legos.
If you can't tell by the video, the launcher itself is bigger than the boy... you would think the UN would pass a resoluation which specifically states you must be as tall as the weapon you're trying to discharge in order to use it? Just seems like common sense, ya know?
Cleveland's chances of making the NBA Finals and LeBron's likeability aren't the only things soaring in the NBA this summer.
Zach LaVine, a Minnesota Timberwolves rookie out of UCLA, put on a dunking clinic over the weekend in Seattle. Based on this footage, the Cavaliers ought to think about getting Minnesota to toss him in any trade that may bring Kevin Love to town.

Obviously, it's only a matter of time before one goes slap bang into his index finger and it looks pretty painful, even without the inane turning that you see coming from Nathan's face. Let's just say it's a good thing that Mike Tyson wasn't throwing the darts.
JAY CUTLER DROVE TO CAMP IN A BIG-ASS VAN...NOT A MINI-VAN
Jay Cutler showed up to Bears training camp today driving the vehicle you see above, what Jay calls a conversion van. Cutler made it very clear that this was not a mini-van, probably because he has spawned a whole brood of mini-Cutlers and a mini-van seems like a pretty sensible option for a dad. But it's a conversion van, not a dad-van.
LEBRON SENT CUPCAKES TO HIS NEIGHBORS AFTER THE MEDIA CRUSH AT HIS HOUSE
A user on the NBA subreddit posted the picture above claiming that his parents live on the same street as LeBron in Bath, OH. Apparently LeBron and his family sent a little note and some cupcakes to their neighbors to apologize and thank them for understanding the media circus that went down in their neighborhood in the days leading up to and following the announcement that LeBron would return to the Cavaliers.
This Cardinals fan takes us on a very satisfying 10-second journey. Dressed in his road grays and holding a newly purchased and refreshing beer, he saunters back to his lady friend at the railing, rests his hand against the rail, drops his beer instantaneously, does a quick welp gesture, and looks to be heading back to replace his plunging beverage as we head to commercial.
BASEBALL PLAYER DOESN'T WATCH BASEBALL: "IT'S TOO LONG AND BORING"
Among the things I learned about Anthony Rendon from this Washington Post article, it's that the young Nationals infielder doesn't seem to like baseball all that much.
Rendon, who easily could have made the all-star game but didn't, says he was grateful for the time off. He says he doesn't talk about baseball with his family, never watched the sport growing up, and rarely watches it now.
A 34-year-old woman has gone viral because she made a "duck face" during her mug shot. Angela Green was arrested for refusing to leave a Cleveland Quality Inn hotel room and eventually decided to pucker up during her booking photo.

She was charged with obstructing official business and released on a $354 cash bond.
22 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE DUKES OF HAZZARD
I grew up a devoted fan of The Dukes of Hazzard. It was to my childhood self an exciting funny and understandable grown-up show. I was never able to convince my father to jump our car like the Duke boys jumped the General Lee although I sure did try.

So lets look back at that wonderful show and some things that you might not know about it.

American Hero Tim Howard was lucky enough to have a camera in his face as he came home from Brazil, and with the camera came a crowd of people. TMZ captured the moment that was mostly very nice: the majority of folks just wanted to get an autograph, or a photo, or to just tell Howard "thanks." But one guy got greedy.
Target Field, the home stadium of the Minnesota Twins, has become the first Major League Baseball ballpark with a self-serve beer station. The beer vending machine, which features four different selections, debuted at the ballpark on Sunday (July 6th), and a second station is expected to be in place for when Target Field hosts the All-Star Game next week. Fans have to first go to a concession stand to prove their age, after which they buy a vending card for the machine. Buyers can get up to 48 ounces of beer every 15 minutes, but just like at the concession stands, the vending machines stop dispensing beer by the seventh inning
