No details yet, but entertainer <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_McMahon" target="_blank">Ed McMahon</a> has passed away at the age of 86. He's most famous for being Johnny Carson's sidekick on <i>The Tonight Show</i>, Jerry Lewis's co-host on the Muscular Dystrophy Labor Day Telethon, hosting <i>Star Search</i>, and for being a TV pitchman (beer, dog food, Publishers Clearinghouse sweepstakes, that sort of thing). But he was also an incredibly nice guy, and he could do a great W. C. Fields.

Mon, 22 Jun 2009 01:00:00 -0500 EXTREEEEEEEEEME http://www.thefump.com/blog_entry.php?id=4&blog=816 Here are a couple of tricks for you to try when you're bored: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YngyMco72QA" target="_blank">the baseball bat ninja move</a>, and <a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/post/Jordy-Smith-pulls-arguably-the-best-surfing-move?urn=top,171898" target="_blank">the rodeo flip</a>.<br /><br />My athletic days are, mostly, behind me. I say this because when I was in high school I used to go for the trampolines, both the mini (running launch into a full flip) and the larger one (all kindsa stuff). It'd be nice, but I'd have to lose a lot of weight. Used to be a pretty good hand with a baseball, to. Not batting, though -- one of my first Barney McCloskey League at-bats, I got hit a pitch, and that spooked me for the rest of my lone season. Give me softball, please.<br /><br />What are your favorite athletic achievements? Recent or dim past.
