Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: The (4-5) Chargers are visiting the (6-3) Bears at Soldier Field. This game promises to produce many "Cutlerface's". If the Chargers are stupid enough to kick to Devin Hester, expect him to go HAM. Jim Nantz is calling the game so expect to fall asleep by half time. To say Phillip Rivers has been struggling has been an understatement. It's freezing in Chicago so expect to see numerous humorous images. Jump!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: The (4-5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers are visiting the (9-0) Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The Packers are undefeated and look to be Super Bowl contenders this year. Aaron Rodgers has made packers fans say "Brett who?". The 2010 Super Bowl champions look to have no problems with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that rank 31st in total defense in NFL. JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Who knew Kristin Cavallari had any redeeming qualities? Not us. But hell, we're men, so we can admit when we made a mistake. As it turns out, KCav does have some redeeming qualities that aren't her ass. She went to the Marine Corps Ball last night with Lance Cpl. Jonathan Burkett. That kicks ass. Her man, Jay Cutler, even took the time to give a shout out to Burkett and if that dick can do it, so can we. Your 15 minutes start now, but we'll salute you for every one of them. Here's to Burkett, KCav and our armed forces. Semper Fi, bitches!
Ian O'Connor writes this morning for ESPN.com: This is the same quarterback neither Elway nor the head coach, John Fox, seemed to want around. This is the same quarterback Fox said would be "screwed" if he had to run a conventional offense. How exactly does Tim Tebow go about his night after a 95-yard game-winning drive against the formidable Jets? Does he just go home & read the Bible? Does he call a few chicks over for lemonade? Yes, we're intrigued.
Pittsburgh resident Bill Hart, @bhart62, last night uploaded this pic from his local grocery store where customers are constantly reminded why their franchise is great. Can't even pick up Mrs. T's Pierogies without having a Terrible Towel in your face. In other news, the dude who wrote 'Itsy Bitsy' Bikini has died. You ladies think we're all perverts today? These assholes were writing bikini tunes in the 50s. Might be time for a remix. Timbaland available? Let's get rolling!
Houston Texans TE James Casey stopped at the Stafford, Texas Hooters last night for his radio spot on 610 AM. Upon pulling up, James noticed the billboard had a special message to Matt Leinart and the non-believers. "Hey Leinart, we believe." So simple and effective. In case you didn't hear, Leinart is being given the keys to the AFC South leading Texans due to a possible season-ending injury to Matt Schaub. Relax, Houston. Hooters knows their boy fairly well.
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: I'll be honest, never thought much of linebacker Bill Romanowski during his playing career. Dick would be a good way to summarize our feelings for him. That doesn't mean we don't like his refurbished Tudor home built in 1921. Even though Romo didn't bother to put in air conditioning (really?) the rest of it is pretty sweet. We've got the details and the photos. It can be yours for just $2.5 million. Check it!
Via SignOnSanDiego: The man, believed to be about 60, walked into the U.S. Bank on Balboa Avenue near Genesee Avenue about 9:30 a.m. and walked up to a teller. He lifted his shirt to show a pistol tucked into his waistband, put one hand on the gun and demanded money, the FBI said. The teller handed the robber some cash and he left. Witnesses saw him get into a gray, late-model Mercury. Is this your grandpa? We'll turn him in: email@example.com
Yet another awesome MNF game for all you diehards who just can't get enough pigskin. Nothing like watching the Packers wiping their asses with the Vikings defense. 45-7. 10 Packers caught passes in the blowout. Rodgers now has 28 TDs and 3 INTs. In other news, Stephen Colbert last night warned parents of the growing vodka tamponing epidemic. If your son seems to be buying tampons at an alarming rate, you now know why. Let's get rolling!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich & Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson are America's 'it' couple right now. People just can't get enough of their story, so why not capitalize on it by throwing some cash at the situation? Introducing the David Nelson-Kelsi Reich prop bets. Some of them don't make much sense, but that probably won't stop you idiots from betting. Oh, and of course we have plenty of photos of Reich. Check it!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: The wedding is off! At least temporarily. Tiki Barber is going to have to push back his wedding to Traci Lynn Johnson because a divorce from his wife Ginny isn't going to finalized any time soon. The Barbers are arguing over -- you guessed it -- money. Things just aren't going well for Tiki these days. Of course, he still has Johnson and we've got photos of her next to naked. Check it!
The numbers don't lie with Jay Cutler. Fox can give us all the stats they'd like about how the Bears are winning thanks to Mike Martz focusing on the running game. BC investigators have a better theory as to why the Bears have gone 4-1 since early October. It was announced on Oct. 4 that Cutler was back to giving the moody meat to ex-fiancée Kristin Cavallari. Since then, this guy is on fire. This begs the question: Is Cavallari saving the Bears season? JUMP!
“Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s--- my d---,” Bill Belichick is quoted as saying after the Patriots pasted the Jets last night in New Jersey. While Bill was trumping anything that has ever come out of Rex Ryan's mouth, Twitter was exploding with racial hate towards Mark Sanchez for his 2 INT game, one of which was a pick six. We missed it, but it seems Sanchez went with a Mexican mouthpiece. That sent the Twits over the edge. JUMP!
Hell, he's got nothing else to do, so Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hung out at Carolina Panthers practice today. While he was there he threw footballs at the goal post with Cam Newton & Co., which, it turns out, is a game players play in their free time. We didn't see Newton come through, but Curry did... and then he posed for the camera. Here's the video. Check it!
Back in August we told you about holy roller Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich and her relationship with Buffalo Bills WR David Nelson. The story had a day or two run and flamed out. Well, guess who's playing in the D this Sunday? Yep, Nelson and the Bills. Anyway, Jimmy Traina posted about the couple, Yahoo ran a piece and just fired it onto its front page. The reaction has been ugly. See, Johnson isn't lily white. And we have a commenting revolution. JUMP!
As mentioned earlier this morning, there was actual football played last night. For those of you who don't have the NFL Network, let's just say you didn't miss too much. The Raiders went into Jack Murphy and left with first place in the AFC West via a 24-17 victory. And, of course, Twitter exploded with hatred aimed at Phillip Rivers who now has 13 TD passes and 15 INTs. He only has one game this season without an INT - against Miami. Fans are restless & so NSFW! JUMP!
