At first I was super bummed that this video didn’t feature this car full of rugby bros actually singing the Guns N Roses/Sheryl Crow classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” but instead lip syncing to the hilarious scene in Step Brothers, in which Adam Scott directs his family in a spectacular rendition. But these Exeter Chiefs players are pretty damn fantastic at lip syncing, right down to the nervous breathing, so it’s still pretty funny.
But I do need to point out that I am not an advocate of reenacting movie scenes while driving. Especially when that car clearly has a manufacturing defect. I hope they got a discount for the steering wheel being on the wrong side.

Little League World Series: Southeast vs. New England – 7 PM ET on ESPN 2
What if, instead of analysts, ESPN has a booth where Kate Upton stretches during the game? As usual, this is just a raw idea that I’m tossing out there for the sake of making the announcers of lesser sports broadcasts the least annoying and awkward people on Earth, but this might be my best idea to date.
Golf: Solheim Cup Opening Ceremony – 7 PM ET on the GOLF Channel
Monday Night Football Preseason: Chargers at Bears – 8 PM ET on ESPN on THURSDAY Night
Would anyone not watch this if they called it Thursday Night Football? Or is ESPN worried that fans of Jon Gruden’s very basic insight might not be able to grasp why the adult with the bowl cut is on tonight instead of Monday without some sort of verbal trickery?
MLB: Royals at Tigers – 8 PM ET on MLB Network
What the crap, no Cardinals? I’ve barely seen St. Louis on TV this season. What a crock.
Women’s Tennis: Western & Southern Open – 9 PM ET on ESPN 2
I don’t know about tennis, but I really want an omelet right now.
