    A video of Maradona's go-karting experience in Dubai was posted to his official Facebook page and it will probably make you giggle along with him. The 53-year-old Argentine legend was decked out in his racing suit, gloves and helmet. Since he was in red, there was a definite Mario Kart vibe to it.

    The video is then taken to another level of delightfulness as a montage of Maradona driving around the track is accompanied by Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation." Maradona crossed the finish line with his arms in the air and then finished the day with a celebratory dance. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is another day in the life of Diego Maradona.

  • John Barnes will rap for you on demand

    Ryan Bailey at Dirty Tackle1 day ago

    When Batman is needed to uphold justice and suppress evil in Gotham, the Bat symbol is shone into the sky to bring him into action. Similarly, when former Liverpool and England winger John Barnes is needed to lift the nation's spirits with an impromptu rap performance, he will fulfil his civic duty whenever a phone is pointed at him and someone asks him nicely.

    While on vacation in Dubai this week, Barnes very kindly granted the wish of a fan by performing his rap from one of the best football-themed songs ever created, 'World in Motion' by New Order. It may have been 24 years since he first laid down his rhymes on the 1990 World Cup anthem, but hthe 50-year-old has clearly still got it. What a chap.

    Here's the original, featuring Barnes' magnum opus at the [2.30] mark...

    If you are unfamiliar with Barnes' musical oeuvre, then please enjoy the 'Anfield Rap,' which spurred Liverpool to lose the 1988 FA Cup Final to massive underdogs Wimbledon...

    Barcelona fans looking to escape the harsh reality of not winning anything this season via hallucinogenic drugs face disappointment today, as a large batch of Blaugrana-themed drug-laced candy has been taken out of circulation.

    According to Sport, Spanish police have busted a drug trafficking ring involving nine people in Valencia and Alicante. One of those arrested was a master 'Turrónero' — a person who makes Turrón nougatfor confectionery stores — who had been using his skills to make marijuana-laced chocolates and nougat containing hallucinogenic mushrooms.

    In order to appeal to those who love beautiful passing football as well as candy and recreational drugs, they were molded into the shape of the Barca crest.

    A total of 300 grams (10.6 oz) of drugged delicacies were seized, along with large quantities of cocaine and speed, and nearly $30,000 in cash.
