I was cruising the Twittlez and all of these guys were chirping about some “unreal check” that was recently thrown in some game… so I went to YouTube and searched for it. I was pleasantly surprised to learn it was an UNREAL check and that it happened during an MLL game against one of the world’s best.
This is easily the best check we’ve seen in years and as a longpole that throws junk as much as possible, I just had to share it.

That was so worth it, right? Thought so. Kyle Hartzell just takes Ryan Boyle’s money – and his girl – and he makes it look pretty. I don’t know who won this game (probably the Cannons) and I don’t really care because that was just awesome.
And as if that wasn’t enough awesome video for one day, the offense can answer back with some awesomeness as well. There’s always the hidden ball trick. The Japanese pull this one off to perfection against Australia and it even made it’s way onto Deadspin! Check it out.
