A couple of weeks ago, Dave Grohl broke his leg falling off-stage during a concert in Sweden.

He got patched up quick - not a permanent fix, but enough to get him back on stage - and he finished up the show.

Then he took a little time off to recuperate.

He's still on that road to recovery, but that didn't stop him from kicking off the Foo Fighters' North American tour on Saturday at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC.

He's still got his leg in a cast, but he performed anyway, sitting most of the time with his leg propped up.

His seat was fashioned like the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones, made of guitars instead of swords.

Check out the show's open... The video's not great, but you can capture the spirit of the thing...

It's official. The USA Women's Soccer team defeated Japan last night in Vancouver, and took home FIFA's World Cup.

That makes them the first women's team to win a third World Cup.

It was an amazing game. USA's Carli Lloyd scored three goals on her own in the first half - something that's never been done in a World Cup final match.

The final was 5-2. Watch the folks at ESPN break it down.

And go USA!

Every once in a while, something joyous happens on America's Got Talent.

Here's one of those moments.

A 5-year-old named Heavenly Joy wowed the judges and the audience with her audition piece, singing a song from Frozen and tap dancing too.

What's even more impressive is the way she handled herself in the spotlight, and with the judges - and what she plans to do with the money if she wins the big prize of $1,000,000.

An amazing kid!

A week or so ago, we posted a video of a guy who parked illegally in a handicapped spot.

Somehow, his car was covered in some sort of blue substance to teach him a lesson. We couldn't really tell what that substance was, as the video wa kind of grainy.

Here's a much better video - showing a group of people plastering the car with blue and white Stick-It notes.

Looks like they have more uses than we knew.

Check out the whole video - it's worth watching.

Hold the presses! Close the grills!

The King of Hot Dog Eating has been dethroned.

It's official.

Joey Chestnut, who's won Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest every 4th of July for the past eight years, was knocked off Saturday by Matt "The Megaload" Stonie, who managed to down 62 hot dogs - buns and all - in 10 minutes.

The next closest competitor managed only 32 hot dogs and buns in that same timeframe.

I'll bet these guys don't get invited to a lot of cookouts...

Eating 62 Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs and Buns, Matt Stonie takes home the 2015 championship title and belt!

Let's face it, Magic Mike XXL sets a very high bar for men.

Chiseled, easy on the eyes, the subjects of fantasy.

For the rest of us, that sets the standard impossibly high.

So thank goodness for this answer to Magic Mike XXL.

Regular Mike M/L.

That's more like it. Guys, I think we can live up to this, don't you?

Okay, this is stupid and dumb - but I guarantee it will make you laugh.

Some folks were driving through an animal park when they came up to a zebra.

This wasn't any ordinary zebra.

This was the Mister Ed of zebras, and he was willing to sing for his supper.

Like I said, stupid, and dumb. But funny!

Years from now, psychologists will do studies to figure out why the Sharknado franchise is so popular.

By then, we'll be up to Sharknado 47.

The folks behind the franchise are sequel geniuses.

And they talk about it in the trailer:

"While those other movies wait years, even decades, to release sequels, we give the people what they want as soon as it's sort of ready…"

Sharknado took aim at Los Angeles.

Sharknado 2 took a bite out of the Big Apple.

And now Sharknado 3 is coming, taking aim at the entire East Coast.

And guess what? You and millions of others will be watching. You know you will.

Thanks, Ellen Degeneres, for posting this picture.

I think it can live on its own, without commentary.

How about you?

So that's how it works.

Mark Dice is a political analyst and commentator based in San Diego.

He took his microphone and camera to the beach a couple of days ago to ask average folks what we're celebrating on the Fourth of July.

How very sad aresome of the responses...

How very sad indeed...
