Extreme Stunts in Viral Video
I really enjoyed this new video of extreme stunts.  Lots of flips, flops, twists and turns.  It's called "People Are Awesome 2013".  The four-and-a-half-minute video shows daredevils jumping over moving cars, racing across rooftops, cliff diving, as well as doing a myriad of tricks using skateboards, BMX bikes, surfboards, motorcycles, unicycles and their own bodies.  What's your favourite stunt in the video?  Let us know in the comments below.Read More

Jetlev Jetpack - No More Traffic Jams!

jetlev.jpg

The Jetlev is a new water-propelled jetpack which allows you to beat all the traffic on your daily commute to work.  Further, it is a long more fun than water-skiing on the weekends.

Just imagine flying over those jet skiers in summer on the beach. And when you are first starting out and go the wrong way, you will land in water at least - much softer than a hill, tree or mountain!

Checkout the video below - it is quite a lot of fun.

I'd hate to be a duck or swan underneath that jet stream though!

Bulleen Lions in Gritty Grand Final

The 2010 U15 Bulleen Lions team played the Green Gully Cavaliers in the Grand Final at Bailey Reserve in East Bentleigh on Sunday 12th September.
The ground was in a very patchy and bumpy condition. The wind was very strong and made the ball in the air unpredictable. The Green Gully team played a very physical game receiving 5 yellow cards during the game. The Bulleen Lions played a superior technical game but were beaten by Green Gully in a 1-3 finish.


This was an honourable loss by a young team that had not lost any games the whole season and convincingly beat Brighton and Skye in preliminary finals. Bulleen lost the battle but definitely not the competitive spirit. They gave their parents and supporters their best, lots of highlights, fun and enjoyment during the 2010 season.
One of the songs on this video is "Push It To The Limit" and I would like to dedicate it to the Bulleen Lions U15B team as I believe it aptly describes their team spirit and never say die attitude. We are very proud of you Bulleen Lions. Thank you for a great 2010 season.

Bulleen Lions Beat Knox United and Finish Season On Top

The Bulleen Lions U15B team played their last game for the 2010 season against Knox United today at Milpera Reserve in Rowville.  The game was an exciting one full of near misses, great passing and some very smart football.  The score was an even 1-1 at halftime, but then the Bulleen Lions boys scored a beautiful 2nd goal in the second half to finish the game in an exciting manner.
Congratulations to the Bulleen Lions U15B team who remain undefeated for the 2010 season and now move onto a finals playoff with other teams around Victoria who also finished on top.  Enjoy the pictures and video highlights below.

Bulleen Lions Win Again A Tough One Against Croydon City

The Bulleen Lions U15B team won again; this time against a tough opponent - Croydon City.  With two key players missing, Bulleen had a difficult game with a Croydon team that kept penetrating Bulleen's defence again and again.  Bulleen's first goal was a beautiful lob from the side which hit the post and evaded the goal-keeper to sneak in.  The second goal was a penalty shot from an unfortunate foul in the box.  Croydon's goal came in the 2nd half from a deflected own goal.  The match ended with a 2-1 win to Bulleen.
Watch for the jubilant celebration after Bulleen's penalty shot.  Also, look out for the missed opportunities and the great passing shots by both teams in the pictures and video below.

Bulleen Lions Had a Tough Game Against Ringwood City

The Bulleen Lions U15B team played Ringwood City at the Veneto Club grounds at Bulleen on Sunday 15th August 2010.  In what turned out to be a game of many missed opportunities for Bulleen, they were only able to finish with a 1-1 draw against Ringwood City.  Bulleen Lions have not lost a game all season and have only drawn with Ringwood City once before.
Enjoy the pictures below on a day which had 4 seasons (sun, rain, wind, cloud) and also the video highlights below of all the misses and ofcourse the goals.

Bulleen Lions Have A Valiant Win Against Manningham

The round 14 game of the Bulleen Lions U15B team against Manningham at Bulleen on Sunday 1st August was a very exciting game.  There was lots of action on a ground which was well worn and did not look the best.  There was a goal which was disallowed because it was offside and one near the end which was offside but was allowed.  Referees are human after all and these mistakes will happen.  There was some nice fast action from the boys. Enjoy the pictures and the video highlights below.

Bulleen Lions Remain Undefeated

The Bulleen Lions U15B team played Ashburton at Watson Park, Ashburton in Melbourne on Sunday 25th July 2010.  The middle of the ground proved quite difficult and muddy forcing players to focus on the sidelines for goals.  In what was a convincing win for the Bulleen Lions, the game ended with all 7 goals scored by a variety of players from Bulleen.  One of these goals was also an unfortunate "own goal" by an Ashburton player.  Enjoy the pictures of the action and video of the highlights below:

Bulleen Lions Beat Boroondara Eagles At Home

The Bulleen Lions U15B team continued their winning streak against the Boroondara Eagles today at the Veneto Club at Bulleen in Melbourne.  Bulleen scored two nice goals in the first half only a few minutes apart and put Boroondara under pressure for the rest of the game.  Bulleen threatened again in the second half with a goal which was disallowed.  The game ended at 2-0 in Bulleen's favour. Enjoy the images below from the game and some lovely video highlights - including a slow motion replay of the disallowed goal!

Bulleen Lions Continue Their Winning Streak

The Bulleen Lions U15B team played the Sherbrooke Rangers at the Monbulk Recreation Reserve in Melbourne on Sunday 11th July 2010.  Bulleen won convincingly 3-1 against Sherbrooke in what was a game full of near misses and some spectacular shots at goal.  The state of the pitch was excellent due to the synthetic grass and the day was cold but no rain thankfully.  Enjoy the images and video of the highlights below.

Best Soccer Dribbling In The World

With the FIFA 2010 World Cup at a very interesting stage I thought it would be great just to remind everyone how great the "beautiful" game can be.  Here are some lovely clips of some impressive soccer dribbling.  Let me know of others if you know of any:

Bulleen Lions and Eastern Lions Do Battle

In round 10 of their 2010 season, the Bulleen Lions beat the Eastern Lions 1-0 at home in Bulleen.  The first half was a close affair with many shots at goal which just missed.  In the second half, Bulleen played the better team game and finally a goal came from a rebound.  Enjoy the images and video of the highlights below:

Bulleen Lions Beat Knox To Remain OnTop

With World Cup fever in the air, the Bulleen Lions U15B team won again in their home match against Knox United with a comfortable 5-1 win.  Although the boys seemed a little slow at first - probably due to all those late nights watching the World Cup - they came back strongly in the 2nd half.
The Bulleen Lions remain on top of their division and have now played each of their opponents once.

Bulleen Lions Win Again in Four Seasons Game

The Bulleen Lions U15B team today won a hard fought battle with Croydon City at the Dorset Recreational Reserve in Croydon (Melbourne, Australia).  They finished with a 2-0 win in what turned out to be a day of four seasons - sunny at times, a little windy and cold, a sudden downpour of rain and then back to cloudy and cold!  The first half was an even affair as both teams made mistakes in turning over the ball.  The Bulleen Lions had several shots for goal and then took command in the last 20 minutes.  Some well timed passing and teamwork resulted in two very strong goals which were hard to defend.  Well done boys and good luck defending the lead.  Enjoy the images and video highlights below.

Bulleen Lions Draw Against Ringwood City

In what has been their closest game so far this season, the Bulleen Lions U15B team drew against Ringwood City today at JW Manson Reserve in Ringwood, Melbourne, Australia.  The early goal by the Bulleen Lions was followed by lots of near misses and, at times, scrappy play on a ground which was muddy and boggy.  Enjoy the images and video of the game below:
