5:30 pm
when she finally comes to a stop, she may be a little shook-up from all the flipping and flopping, but she appears free of serious pain. - [voiceover] oh (bleep)! oh (bleep)! - [voiceover] stop! - [voiceover] oh! no! - [voiceover] oh no! (playful music) - [voiceover] a snowboarder who's looking to raise some eyebrows... - [voiceover] ah! - [voiceover] naturally, would want to use a ladder. - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] we're pretty sure that's not what he had in mind. most people set the ladder up vertically, and take their feet out of the snowboard before attempting to climb the thing. - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] this guy? had other ideas. pretty bad ones. cause you know, it didn't work.
5:31 pm
oh, and he broke his arm. next time, he might want to try a step-stool. or a small chair, even. - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] up next, save it for the ring, fellas! and, extreme ice climbing? we know a guy, on sports gone wild! (electronic music)
5:32 pm
we know a guy, on sports gone wild! >> testing. >> testing. >> testing.
5:33 pm
(electronic music) (house music) - [voiceover] in extreme down-hill mountain bike racing, the bikers try to work their way through the course, in a race against each other, and the clock. it takes a lot of two-wheeled skill to peddle through all of the twists, turns, and jumps on this dirt track. there's even a tricky slalom portion to navigate. it all ends up with a flying finish!
5:34 pm
of course, not every racer is able to actually finish, sitting on his bike. - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] but sometimes, in order to finish first, you gotta play a little dirty. (suspenseful music) in an effort to raise the level of hype for an upcoming fight, the boxers take part in a press conference. (yelling) if boxing press conferences are meant to give a preview of the fight, then this one was a smashing success. tore down the whole banner, and everything! they gotta get that thing back up again! there's still a fight to promote! this was just the appetizer. mmm, and a tasty one, at that. (fast-paced music)
5:35 pm
late-game soccer heroics require pin-point passing, and precision timing. - [voiceover] ah! - [voiceover] and when it all comes together, it can set off a tremendous celebration! a closer look shows that the scorer takes advantage of a collision between her opponents, while the ball is up for grabs. which allows her to essentially, take a free kick! then, a teammate grabs her in the, end! looks like all's fair in soccer celebration. apparently, everything's up for grabs! (energetic music) with a little skill, and a lot of luck. a last-second full-court shot, just might end up in the basket. (cheering) and if you're the one who sinks such an improbable shot, you're sure to be at the center of a spontaneous oupouring
5:36 pm
of positive energy. (cheering) the guy just hit an amazing game-winning shot. he'll be the ultimate big man on campus... at least until the next time they lose. then, all bets are off. (jazz music) on a routine baseball play, it's the umpire's job to get the call right. - [voiceover] out! safe! out! - [voiceover] this umpire makes the proper call-- - [voiceover] safe! - [voiceover] more than a few times, on the same play. now the ump may appear to be indecisive, as he calls the guy out! then safe! then out! and ultimately safe again!
5:37 pm
but somebody dropped the ball here! more than once. and after further review, the video evidence suggests, the ump got it right. wait. there's no replay in baseball. is there? (rock music) (suspenseful music) some guys will try to climb anything, including giant chunks of ice. while it may look solid, ice is not the most stable of structures. as changes in temperature can cause it to melt, and melting ice can easily break. add the fact that the climber is using sharp tools to try and reach his goal, and he has no idea if the structure he is climbing will support his weight. as the climber makes his ascent, a 50-pound chunk of ice, shaped like a piercing arrow,
5:38 pm
slams into his face, and nearly impales him! but this ice man remains cool, and dodges the falling structure. he then is able to complete his climb, without dislodging any more chunks of ice. coming up, horses simulate bumper cars down the stretch! and, when they said put the pedal to the metal, they certainly didn't have this in mind! on sports gone wild! (energetic music)
5:39 pm
5:40 pm
(energetic music) (disco music) - [voiceover] they've certainly pulled out all the stops for this fishing trip. the location is exotic. the boat is fully-stocked. and there are plenty of able hands on-deck. so it makes sense that they haul in a good-size catch, and fish is on the dinner menu!
5:41 pm
but these guys are lookin' for bigger fish to fry. so they re-cast their lines, to see what else they can reel-in. - [voiceover] oh! (screaming) - [voiceover] that is pretty nice! (screaming) - [voiceover] get away! get inside! - [voiceover] soon enough, they land a whopper! a 200-pound marlin that leaps 15 feet in the air, lands in the boat, and makes everyone a little jumpy. - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] oh my god! - [voiceover] hey, hey, hey! - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] whoo! (yelling and howling) - [voiceover] hey, if you want to bring in the big fish, you gotta be wiling to use the bait and tackle. - [voiceover] oh my god! - [voiceover] whoo! - [voiceover] whoo! (disco music) (suspenseful music) (crowd cheering) - [voiceover] ice hockey fights,
5:42 pm
typically erupt between players with bad intentions, looking to pound some sense into each other, or pound each other senseless. then there are times when one guy looks to take on a whole team, by himself! advantage, blue team. when you're out-numbered ten-to-one in a fight, on the other team's bench, it's a good bet you're gonna lose. with all of this action happening off the ice, it's even harder than usual for the three guys wearing stripes to get a handle on things! eventually, cooler heads will prevail. won't they? (crowd cheering and yelling) road-rage is not just reserved for guys who can't stand to get cut-off. or even given the finger by other drivers during their morning commute.
5:43 pm
even professional drivers get annoyed when their opponents refuse to obey the unwritten rules of the road. - [voiceover] the wwf has erupted here at-- - [voiceover] this dispute between car 24 and car 29 begins with a bang! one that puts both racers out of commission, especially the 29 car! which not only lands on it's side, it's also leaking fuel! but the car 29 team is too fueled by rage to notice, as they set their sights on making the guy driving car 24 pay for causing this accident, by causing him pain! but what about the fuel spill? well, when they flip the car back onto it's wheels, it creates a spark, which ignites the fuel, and sets the track ablaze! there's nothing like a major fire,
5:44 pm
to make people forget what they were fighting about! fortunately, the driver was away from his ride, when the thing erupted. guy coulda been burned! (rock music) when the fur starts to fly in go-cart racing, the drivers sometimes have to use a little human power to get their carts going again. this driver manages to get his cart back in action, without him in it! now the race is on to get back in the race! the guy might actually have a chance, if he can ever get back in the driver's seat. (fast rock music) looks like his car is pretty fast! and that's with no one pushing down the gas pedal! or steering the thing!
5:45 pm
(horse neighs) as the horses make their way down the stretch in this race. the horse without a rider, decides to play rough... (horse neighs) and looks to take the guy to his outside, outside. (horse whinnies) not sure if the jockey-less horse had a pact with the eventual winner to take out the competition. or if he was acting on his own equine impulse. oh well, as they say, rubbin', is racin'! wait, that's auto racin'! which has nuthin' to do with horses! never mind. (horse whinnies) after a grueling bike race, the thrill of victory is often reserved for the guy who can finish the strongest. in this case, a strong finish leads to a downfall. cause dude fell down pretty hard after he crossed the finish line, and crashed into a motorcycle!
5:46 pm
hope he passes the drug test. up next, a hot rod takes a detour on a short track. and, motorcycles in the mud? it's bound to get messy, on sports gone wild! (energetic music) on sports one wild! choose, choose, choose. but at bedtime? ...why settle for this? enter sleep number, and the ultimate sleep number event, going on now. sleepiq technology tells you how well you slept and what adjustments you can make. you like the bed soft. he's more hardcore. so your sleep goes from good to great to wow! only at a sleep number store. right now save 50% on the ultimate limited edition bed. know better sleep with sleep number.
5:47 pm
5:48 pm
(energetic music) (electronic music) - [voiceover] in ice hockey, the refs on the ice who make the calls, are backed-up by off-ice officials who sit directly behind the goalie. - [voiceover] oh! well! - [voiceover] is it a goal? or no goal? - [voiceover] the referee is goin' right over to the goal judge. gonna ask him. - [voiceover] the guy behind the glass says goal, but it's clearly not a goal. - [voiceover] there it is right there. oh no, it hit the post. - [voiceover] although the goal judge goofed, it's the goalie who tries his best to clear things up.
5:49 pm
- [voiceover] (laughs) that's somethin' new. - [voiceover] hey, the guy did a pretty good job cleaning the glass! - [voiceover] this game is amazing. (mumbling) what a great move! - [voiceover] especially without a squeegee! - [voiceover] taken by murphy! as the crunch are arguing, that that was in the net! - [voiceover] baseball umpires, are known for their take-charge attitudes. when they make a call, it's final. and the teams involved, just have to live with it. while sometimes baseball managers angrily go after the umpires, here's a case where one of the umpires looks to take on the manager! this is quite a role reversal! as the ump has to be restrained, while the manager calmly makes his counter-point without moving a muscle. kind of disappointing that the umpire failed to kick dirt on the guy. or throw some debris onto the field. managers are much better at temper tantrums.
5:50 pm
when you win enough drag races over the years, you get the coolest looking car on the track. (engine roars) and you get to put your name on it. but if you fail to keep the car on the straight and narrow, you could not only lose the race... but lose your fancy car, in the process. when you're competing in a drag race, there's no need to make left turns! or any turns at all, for that matter. you just basically have to keep the thing from turning. (electronica music) a little moisture is not enough to stop this motorcycle race, on a dirt track. as these pros prove they can handle the adverse conditions. but as the race goes on,
5:51 pm
the conditions start to deteriorate. - [voiceover] ah! - [voiceover] and the motorcycle racer's mastery of the track becomes more, muddy. - [voiceover] ah! - [voiceover] and it's a really short distance from muddy, to messed up. as in one muddy spill quickly becomes one messed up mash-up. (engine roaring) snowmobiles are known for being the most effective way to get from one place to another in the snow. especially, when the landscape is lonely. but even when you're headed up the road less-traveled, ya have to be careful to avoid the occasional obstacle. - [voiceover] now who put that tree in the way?
5:52 pm
it's an evergreen, you know. those things sure spring up fast! (rock music) (humorous music) - [voiceover] the ultimate goal in calf-roping is for the guy on the moving horse to get his rope around the moving calf, and bring it to a stop. it may sound simple, but in the wild, wild world of rodeo, nothing is ever simplistic. (moos) while some guys have trouble getting their hands around the whole calf-roping concept, others get completely tied-up in their work. like this guy, who seems to have the roping part all tied-up...
5:53 pm
but he fails to capture the calf. told ya it wasn't simple. (horse neighs) coming up, these bike racers are getting jumpy. and, a kayak getting towed really cracks this guy up, on sports gone wild! (energetic music)
5:54 pm
on sports gone wild! as a small business owner, here's one thing you can rely on: your business will change as it grows. whether it's new space, more employees, or better equipment, things have a way of moving fast. but if your network can't keep up, it can really slow you down. and that's not good for business. thankfully, a switch to the 100% fiber optic network of verizon fios is all it takes to keep everything moving in the right direction.
5:55 pm
with fios you get 99.9% network reliability and the fastest wi-fi available, with uploads as fast as downloads. but you also get something more. a network that can move as fast as your business does. right now, upgrade to fios 50 meg or higher internet and phone and get $250 back. call or go online today. small business is better on a better network.
5:56 pm
(rock music) - [voiceover] now this is what they call a flying finish. looks like fun, doesn't it? but as they say, the roughest thing about flying, is coming in for a landing. and when it's not the perfect three-point kind of landing,
5:57 pm
it can really knock you for a loop! nearly knocked this dude out, in the process! send in the medics! looks like he's gonna need some time to mend a few broken bones. (crowd yelling) (hard rock music) if you're looking for new ways to get around, you might wanna try hitching a kayak up to the back of a car and see where it takes you. it's also apparently a good way to take the dog out for a little exercise. the light-weight plastic construction of the kayak helps make it glide across the grass with the greatest of ease. but all good things must come to an end. - [voiceover] wow! oh (bleep)! - [voiceover] and this good thing ends with a break-up! ouch!
5:58 pm
well that's our cue that it's time to break-up this episode. we'll see you next time on sports gone wild! (energetic music) - [voiceover] oh! - [voiceover] oh my god! (yelling) (gasping) (indecipherable speech) - oh, you were so close to the blade! did you go in the tree? - i flew! (laughing) - [voiceover] zach, you ripped your pants, again! - [voiceover] you're still the man in our house. - it happens. - [voiceover] almost, even with the sheet. - i don't know you well enough, buddy! next on "action news" a cabdriver in philadelphia a is shot by a passenger but keeps driving with the suspect still inside. plus republican presidential hope fulls prepare for their eighth debate.
