YouTube Top Ten: because that squash ball left a mark

It’s that time of the week again! Join us for: a man jumping over a speeding car, the biggest mosh-pit in all of sports and Milan Jovanovic’s Neighbours name-check.

10. I’m not quite sure how you discover or hone a talent for jumping speeding vehicles, but a mysterious Swede known only as “Al the Jumper” has the knack.

9. This chap? Not so much. Walk it off, son.

8. Local hero Brendan Dolan threw the first ever live double-in, double-out 9-darter in Dublin last weekend. This, I’m reliably informed, is a very big deal.

7. Milan Jovanovic– “one of the greatest footballers in the world”– found himself the unwitting subject of the best in-joke in Neighbours history last month.

6. I want to dislike this fellow– he has the smirking, self-satisfied face of an extreme sports body fascist– but I just can’t. Geronimo!

5. Fans of Virginia Tech really like Metallica. No, I mean they really like Metallica… (bonus: unwitting child gets flattened at 1:52)

4. Long before Luis Figo adopted the oleaginous style of a 1980s stockbroker, he liked to dress like the cast of early Seinfeld, all at once (witness: Jerry’s sports coat, Elaine’s hair).

3. Just when we thought the age-old PES vs. FIFA debate had been put to bed…

2. The Texas Rangers’ Josh Hamilton lost his bat in rather spectacular fashion during the week, sending it spinning into the crowd. One of the fans it injured– a man in his forties– was reduced to some agonised head-holding, but he still had the wherewithal to wrestle a polite, middle-aged lady for the souvenir. What a trooper.

1. Cameron Pilley can launch a squash ball faster than anyone else on the planet (175mph). His brother; well, he’s just an idiot.
