The screenshot tells the story, I will not post the picture included in the group chat. I will though paint you a mental picture, the picture in the group chat is of myself in the mirror taking a ‘selfie’ dressed in a hoodie and pajama pants with the fly unbuttoned and my nuts are hanging out the fly.
Sticking up for myself here, please let it be noted it WAS cold where I took that picture so the nuts are not in there full saggy glory. That doesn’t stop my brothers from taking shots at me. Ah Well, as long as I got laughs then mission accomplished. We are all usually good sports about ball busting so it comes with the territory. Enjoy.

Welp.. It was only a matter of time until someone came out with something like this. The people over at vine.co have created a mobile device app called ‘Vine’ which you can find in any of the smartphone app stores. The App basically lets you record a video clip with a maximum of 6 seconds and lets you publish it similar to instagram or twitter to share with everyone or just your vine friends. The video does not have to be a consecutive 6 seconds you can shoot something different at different times to compile into one vine as long as it is only a maximum of 6 seconds. Which is good, forces you to get to the point and be creative to get your point accross. The video is then looped over and over again for everyone to see.
Of course all the comedians and funny people all over the internet have taken to this by storm to produce some really funny clip. Musicians and DJ’s have also taken to Vine to create little clips or loops to music which have been nothing short of amazing. Again, really forces you to be creative with the limited amount of time you have. The end result is usually golden, I have come across a ton of clips that make me laugh so hard it hurts. Here is an example below, just pure comedy and totally my type of humor.
If you would like to find me on Vine you can look me up by my username b_cinelli or my brother john at jcinelli71

Who hasn’t had some downtime and browsed youtube looking at football/baseball/basketball highlight reels? You can find thousands of videos of players who are just insanely talented doing amazing things? They are a dime a dozen. You can seriously spend days/weeks sorting through all the clips. THEN, you find some diamonds in the rough. In a world where to many people take themselves so seriously you get one or two guys who just want to give you a laugh and remind you not everyone gets top billing in the highlights and hot chicks at the end of the game .. someone needs to make out with the ugly cheerleaders too.
While reading over at deadspin.com I came accross their article “How to Make A Highlight Reel without any Highlights” , I have never laughed so hard in my life. I watched both these clips on the train going to work and people were staring at me while I am doubled over in pain crying laughing at these videos.
I love people who know not to take themselves too seriously all the time. Shows you not everyone is just full of themselves 24/7 like most superstar athletes today. The little guy may not score all the touchdowns or make the game winning tackle but he can make the girls laugh.
