Morning, gents. Here’s the latest roundup of the coolest dude stuff on the Internet to start off your Monday, September 28:
Aussie Rules Football: Australian former rugby player Jarryd Hayne, who scrapped his way to a spot on the 49ers roster, recorded a dazzling 37-yard punt return that set up the Niners’ only score against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Dude is fast becoming our favorite underdog story this NFL season. [49ers]
Olympic Surfing!: The IOC is considering five new sports for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, including surfing, sports climbing, and baseball/softball. Make surfing happen, IOC! [Wall Street Journal]
Washington Base-Brawl: Nationals pitcher Jonathan Papelbon started a dugout fight with 22-year-old MVP candidate Bryce Harper Sunday night, eventually grabbing Harper around the throat before Ian Desmond separated them. Oh, and then the Nationals lost, eliminating themselves from playoff contention. Fun times! [Washington Post]
Look Who’s Back: Big Ben Roethlisberger went down with an MCL injury Sunday night that’ll sideline him for at least 4-6 weeks. His replacement? None other than Michael Vick, who once again steps into the harsh glare of the spotlight. [NFL]
Get Your Strokes In: The Strokes are back in the studio, former frontman Julian Casablancas said night during the band’s headlining set at the Landmark Music Festival in Washington, D.C., on Sunday night. 90s kids rejoice! [Stereogum]
