Detroit homeboy Jim Schwartz was talking music on Twitter this afternoon: "RT @PatStreater:do you listen to any hip hop? >>Yes. For some reason, I like Pitbull & Lil John. Fan of Dr. Dre & Eminem also. Beasties too." Did you read that, Detroit? Don't screw this up, Motor City. This guy could end up as the greatest coach in team history. Said it last year, the guy has the look, identifies with players and has the baddest man on the planet playing defensive tackle. (@jschwartzlions)
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gets no respect from the Capitol Lounge in Washington D.C. Their Patriots-themed menu features items named for Chad Ochocinco, Deion Branch and Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen. So, in honor of Gisele's Sweet-Ass Potato Fries, here's a smokin' gallery of Giselle's sweet ass. Someone pass the Heinz! JUMP!
Dear God, why do You have to make us watch a sober Kyle Orton go 24-for-46 and 304 yards passing? Sure, Sober Kyle got the Broncos close, 23-20, but that was the end of the comeback as the Raiders got a road victory. Meanwhile, at a Publix, Tebow's Extreme Coupon team was hitting the V8 Splash aisle where Big Jim was about to go ape shit with a $2 off coupon. Normal price for the Splash = $1.88. That means Jim could get 125 bottles for free & cash back from Publix.
So let us get this straight: you show up to Lambeau looking like you huffed a few cans of spray paint, root for the Saints and then want to get in on the ass slapping after yet another Packers touchdown? Is this some sort of joke? What a loser. Anyway, the Aaron Rodgers machine rolled along, the home team covered and Oklahoma State covered. That means we pushed for the night. In other news, it's Friday. Let's make this painless. (via @JoeSportsFan)
Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has some new kicks and while they might ooze patriotism (in honor of 9/11, of course), they might be the ugliest shoes we've ever seen. We like where your heart is, but you're sense of style has obviously left the building. Although, if Osama Bin Laden were alive, we're sure he'd be terrified. Check out these monstrosities.
It's a shame that we'll go through most of, if not all of the 2011 season, without Peyton Manning running up and down the offensive line calling out assignments and pointing at linebackers. The news out of Indy today is that Peyton has undergone his second neck surgery. ESPN is freaking. CBS is busy changing its 4 p.m. games and fantasy owners are jumping off bridges. Jim Irsay gives us the latest, via Twitter. JUMP!
Of course we weren't watching The Today Show this morning where Matt, Al, etc. set up shop because otherwise America wouldn't be watching tonight's Packers-Saints game. But the local media was given field passes to document the proceedings. That meant Green Bay Press-Gazette reporter Charles Davis could snap photos, including fake Brett Favre meeting with Tony Dungy. Seriously. Like, NBC went out of its way to get this guy more publicity. JUMP!
Twitter user @ColinDeval was on his way to Green Bay yesterday and just happened to catch the Packer Mobile rolling up the highway to the Promised Land. The weather has changed. Fall rains have arrived. Temps are barely breaking 70. Football is in the air and officially kicks off tonight. But...you'll have to wait until Barry is done with his jobs speech. Want to hear Kid Rock on network TV? Not happening. Dammit, Obama!
Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber may be jobless, devastated no one wants him and more or less universally despised, but at least he still has 20-something girlfriend Traci Lynn Johnson. Here's a good glimpse of what Tiki gets to look at every night after he's unable to look at himself in the mirror. Not bad. Check the photos!
Doug Flutie made a minor news ripple in Canada Monday after showing up at a football game in London, Ontario. It wasn't a Canadian Football League game. Instead, Flutie was in town for a Western Ontario game. Yeah, that's a Canadian college. It seems his daughter, Alexa, is dating some dude from Massachusetts (Peter Giannikopoulos) who is playing Canadian college football. Relationship killer, bro. JUMP!
Brady Quinn typed on his iPhone last night: Those Terps uni's are sick. Can't wait for NIKE to take over the NFL next year! And then clarified when followers destroyed him: “@B23Hunter: @BQ9 comeon brady they look like crash test dummies” true..and yes I realize they are made by UA, just excited for NIKE next yr. Then, today, Brady told us he was getting Chipotle for lunch. Suck it, Raiders Nation. (via @BQ9)
While the BC i-Team investigation unit has been busily tracking everything Oakland Raiders granny cheerleader Susie Sanchez, we'd be remissed to not provide you with the latest concerning another famous cheerleader. Tony LaRussa's daughter, Bianca, made her debut in her daddy's old stomping grounds in the preseason. Our investigation unit seems to think this is the first MLB manager-NFL cheerleading daughter combo in sports history. JUMP!
All NFL cheerleaders are dopey. That was the perception 10-15 years ago as the league was going through its bloated bangs and laughable cheek makeup stage. The league is making strides in the cheerleader department. Whether it's grandmothers shaking it. Or famous MLB manager daughters. Or Doug Flutie's offspring. Now comes news that the Taiwanese/Chinese are invading our shores with brainy cheerleaders. Meet Cindy L. - JUMP!
There hasn't been much to cheer for lately if you're a Cleveland Browns fan. Except for running back Peyton Hillis, that is. The bruising rusher came out of nowhere last season to give Browns fans a ray of hope. Of course, they latched onto Hillis and made him into a local deity, much like Chuck Norris is to the rest of the world. Now Hillis is doing his best Walker, Texas Ranger impression to market his personal website and we've got the hilarious video for you. Bang it!
We know New England Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco likes to call attention to himself in public. Well, it appears he likes to call attention to fish in the privacy of the home he shares with fiancé Evelyn Lozada. Ochocinco has a custom-made fish tank over his bed and as a wall for his multiple televisions. Here are the pics, along with Lozada in a sports bra. Check it!
It's football season and you know that that means. Football! It also means tailgating and that means grilling and drinking. In order to get your proper shine on before the game, we've compiled the best tailgating beers for you. Whether you're a distinguished gentleman or a broke-ass college student, you'll find what you need right here.
