The Green Bay Packers will start selling stock in the team on Tuesday. That means you can be one of the hundreds of thousands of people who own a piece in the greatest franchise in pro sports history. Despite all that hyperbole, we're serious. You really can be an NFL owner. The Packers are publicly-owned and they are selling stock. It won't make you rich, but you can totally one-up your bros. They only own Broncos Jay Cutler replica jersey. Here's the rundown, including a special tale from the shareholders meeting.
This is what they're fired up about in Oregon tonight for the first-ever Pac-12 football championship game: the PA announcer. It seems the Pac-12 thought it would be too much of a home-field advantage for the home team to use its PA announcer. Serious as an itchy ballsack. And who did the conference bring in? That smiling d-bag, Paul Olden, who's the voice of the New York Yankees. You want kicked in the nuts, Oregon? Here comes commissioner Larry Scott. BAM! JUMP!
WE KNOW! There's no Big 12 Championship game this year because there aren't two divisions. But let's all just play along and call Saturday's OU-Okie State Bedlam game the championship. The winner goes to Glendale for the Fiesta Bowl. As a gift to you guys, we're bringing back OU law student @AshleyFerrara and her insane mirror shots from October. She's an all-time BC favorite because she's so sweet and makes the Internet so damn fun. JUMP!
BC's very own college football sleuth, @ParadigmShift35, was working his sources last night and wouldn't you know it, these super-intelligent, mostly single Internet dorks tracked down Urban Meyer's new Ohio State email. Oh, and it seems he's actually using it. Are you a jaded Florida fan who needs to have the last word? Are you a Michigan fan who wants to welcome Urb back to the Big Ten? What about you Indiana students who want to talk s%^&? JUMP!
There was a 4th and 1 from inside the Seahawks 10 last night for the Eagles and Brad Nessler made sure to tell us that "This could be the season for the Eagles." Excuse us while we clean up the mess created when a boot was inserted through the television and straight up Nessler's ass. Hey, asshole, that was a 4-7 team last night with their backup QB. Could be the season? They would've had to run the table to 'possibly' make the playoffs. Cut the shit, Nessler. Let's get rolling!
And here we go again with Jay Cutler and fellow numbskull Kristin Cavallari. Cuts was on this morning with Waddle and Silvy, the hucksters at ESPN Chicago. The boys started out with football questions but eventually wondered into Jay Cutler relationship gossip. First order of business? Bro, when you getting hitched? Jay's response? About as dumb as his stupid ass wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses. JUMP!
When will the Oakland Raiders start being the Oakland Raiders again? It's now! Linebacker Rolando McClain was arrested for brandishing a gun and... well... some other shit too. You wanted thugs on your Oakland Raiders instead of those fakers and scumbags in The Black Hole that embarrass you? Well, you've got it (allegedly)! McClain allegedly fired a gun next to some fool's ear because... well... if nothing else, he plays for the goddamn Raiders!
ESPN probably chose the wrong shot opening shot for the West Virginia Mountaineer for you to watch some Thursday night football. Jenn Brown manned the sidelines where as you may have had your TV muted while Craig James announced the game. The University of South Florida also seemed to have a "ball boy" who seemed well into his 60's. Dana Holgerson had at least 8 Red Bulls before the game started. JUMP!
Via Spencer Hall at EDSBS: So we kept emailing the B1G hoaxster--and yes, it was a hoax--to see if we were going to get a response. You'd think someone who'd pulled off a successful prank would simply flee the scene of the crime, their work done and the feat accomplished, but the pros do this a bit differently. Over 2000 responded to the Craigslist seat filler hoax. Obviously the Big Ten is behind this. Great marketing work, fellas. Go read Spencer's Q&A - NOW!
It's the last day of Movember so naturally it's time to check in with those men who've been growing a 'stache to raise awareness for men's health. Matt Hasselbeck was kind enough - via Twitter - to share his creepy hat/'stache combo. And we'd be doing you guys a giant disservice to end this post without showing what Jim Cantore looked like this morning before getting that curtain shaved off. Sorry, ladies, mustache rides are over as of midnight.
It's the Craig's List ad that is causing SEC fans in the Twitter-verse to choke. Imagine the thought of the Big Ten needing seat fillers to make Saturday's Nebraska-Michigan State game look filled on national TV. Imagine what it would look like for the Big Ten championship to be played in front of thousands of empty seats. If you believe this Craig's List ad, someone is trying to fill seats in Indy. $75 to sit in a seat? That's what we're being told. JUMP!
"Bro, look at this sweet shirt I got for Halloween next year. Totally going as Jerry Sandusky, the football camp counselor." Want one of these shirts floating around on eBay? They're going to cost you some serious coin. Ever paid $100 for a short sleeve t-shirt? Not even during the Ed Hardy craze? If you want the authentic Sandusky Football Camp shirt worn by campers in 2006, you're gonna have to bend over. JUMP!
Via Friends of the Program who know Oxford, Mississippi and have sources in each dining spot. Taken on the Square in Oxford today…Archie Manning taking in an important business lunch at Ajax (if he didn’t order the vegetable plate then I have no confidence in his decision making) with the leading candidate for the Ole Miss head football coaching position. Hmm, he's not needy like we always assumed. Also looks like a sweet tea & water guy. Green beans?
Yes, that looks like a War Eagle (via @Beezy1000). React accordingly, Auburn fan. Of course the Bama media didn't waste much time asking Nick Saban yesterday about the BCS Championship. "The whole thing should be based on who are the best two teams," Saban said. "Isn't that what it's supposed to be? If it's not on that, then it doesn't matter whether we played before or that we are in the same conference." Suck on that, BCS Media. Let's get rolling!
Eli Manning and the New York Giants are taking on the New Orleans Saints where Eli provided the classic "Manning Face" after throwing an interception to the Saints. At 5 foot 6, Darren Sproles used his smurf back status to rip through the Giants defense with a vengeance. Drew "Breesus" looked as immaculate as usual throwing towards one of the best tight ends in the nation named Jimmy Graham. Note to the Giants: You may want to cover him. JUMP!
Here's a sordid saga. After Cowboys cheerleader Melissa Kellerman was run over by tight end Jason Witten in last Thursday's game she sent out a couple tweets. Then her Twitter account mysteriously disappeared. Some suggested the Cowboys made her pull the account. Suddenly it appeared again this morning. The strange Kellerman Twitter account mystery and bikini photos. Check it!
