Denver Mayor Michael Hancockis back at it. He's made another bet, this time with Boston Mayor Tom Menino over Saturday's game. It's more or less your standard politico wager. The winner gets a specific dinner from the loser's town and the loser has to wear a jersey from the opposing team. Except... instead of Menino wearing a Broncos jersey, it will be the statue of Paul Revere wearing a Broncos jersey. Kind of makes us sick. Check it!
The Oregon Ducks are slinging the helmets they wore in the Rose Bowl online and you can have one for just $1,000. Seems like a great investment, huh? Actually, the helmets are authentic, but they've never been worn by anyone, so we don't really know what kind of investment they are. Some nutjobs seem to be into them though. There were reportedly three sold in the first hour. Go figure. Check it!
While the rest of you pussies struggle through winter in Atl, Tampa, San Diego, Phoenix, Vegas, etc., there are those of us who have big enough balls to man-up & stay right in our sh*tty northern cities where it's cold & snowy. Now, as part-owner of the Green Bay Packers, it gives me great pride to see our fans working their asses off for $10/hour to get Lambeau in shape for Sunday's game. Just look at how many lined up to work. That's a real NFL franchise. Jealous? JUMP!
Leola Bell doesn't know much about football but she does know beautiful football jerseys when she sees them. That's why she's a Florida Gators fan. And a Dolphins fan. What else did we learn yesterday from Playboy's Miss February 2012? She's dating someone famous but won't tell us the lucky guy's name. What else is going on in her life? Tons. She is so busy that she just learned about the Tebowing phenomenon. You get the picture, right? We are in love with Leola. JUMP!
That would be the Ortega United Methodist Church in Jacksonville, FL in case you want to stop in for a lesson. In other Tebow news, the Denver Post keeps digging for garbage that Tebow freaks will read such as Jockeys' Facebook following grew 2,000 percent after signing Baby Jesus. Also, jockey.com last month set a new one-day sales record via some Tebow promotion. Guess who is going to make serious money this weekend? 49ers bettor. Line is up to +4. Let's get rolling!
For those who haven't been following Ochocinco's Twitter feed the last couple days, he's been talking about his tipping habits at restaurants. Dude says he matches the tip to whatever the bill was and showed his bill at IHOP today as an example. Says 85: People always tip based on the service never taking into consideration the many idiots, assholes etc. that may have pissed the server off. As for fine dining, Ocho says that consists of Red Lobster. (@ochocinco)
Scott Van Pelt referenced something during his show today that shocked us, didn't sound right and then the cable went out. Did he actually say something about his "wife?" One thing led to another and a Scott Van Pelt wedding registry was on our desktop. It seems the Internet's hero managed to get married in October without a peep from us bloggers. How is that even possible? Not sure, but we can now look at what Scott and Stephanie didn't get for wedding gifts. JUMP!
Um, that ESPN Tebow Hour that went down today didn't exactly go over well with the unemployed and second-shifters who happened to be watching. The anger on Twitter centered on the need for ESPN to "suck tha d*ck" of Tebow more than they already do on an hourly basis. The Twitter grammar was bad, the anger was real and regular folks unloaded on yet more Tebow lust from the WWL. Kudos to those tweets that used 140 characters to catch our attention. JUMP!
Via the F.B.I. Knoxville bureau: Today, the Knoxville Division of the FBI launched an electronic billboard campaign seeking the public’s assistance to help identify a serial bank robber active in East Tennessee. The individual is suspected of robbing of at least three banks in Tennessee. He is possibly in his 30s and has been wearing a baseball cap during each of the robberies. We're thinking former college footballer, possibly o-lineman. Nail him: email@example.com
Houston-based chick @MDRMissy spent most of Tuesday night tweeting this cloud photo to the major media outlets in the Magnolia City, claiming this is proof that God wants the Texans to beat the Ravens. Yes, that cloud pattern is proof. If Tebow can have halos over Mile High, Missy can have her Texans logo in the sky. It's only fair. The more we look at the cloud - and drink - the more convinced we are that Missy is onto something here. Logical move is $1k and the points.
You know what we love about the Tebow phenomenon? This story has brought Americans from many different walks of life together for football, religion & the race to steal His virginity. As we've said since 2008: Men want to be him, women want to do him. What has happened over the last 10 weeks or so is that pornstars are starting to take notice of Baby Jesus and his virginity. The thought is driving them crazy. Riley Steele & Nikki Benz can barely contain their excitement. JUMP!
Fox NFL analyst and former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan is ditching his posh Los Angeles pad and he stands to make a tidy profit. After purchasing the Brentwood home for $5 million in 2009, Strahan will clear a little under $2 million profit if he gets what he's asking. Not bad for a couple years of doing nothing. Presumably, it will allow him and Eddie Murphy's ex to move into an ever more splendid joint. JUMP!
Why do we love Alabama's Trent Richardson and would probably put our franchise on his shoulders? Because this guy is always hustlin', doing his best to grind out a living, providing for his two little girls & doing it all on a college football paycheck. This weekend in N.O.? Hustlin' the Harrah's casino craps tables. Monday? Busting tackles on his way to another BCS ring. Probably doubled down his dinner money to buy his babies new shoes. JUMP!
Just making our normal rounds this morning and was shocked at what Roger Clemens is up to these days instead of dodging government perjury lawyers. Would you ever guess that Rocket is good enough friends with Snoop D-O-double G that he has dinner with the former pimp? Of course it makes sense to have dinner with Toby Keith. From what we have learned, Snoop has infiltrated white America as a black football coach. That's right, celebs want him coaching their sons. JUMP!
Letterman's Top 10 list last night included these little-known facts about Baby Jesus: 8. For breakfast has Icy Hot on toast, 6. Currently ninth on the Kim Kardashian athlete waiting list and 4. One time, lost his temper and said, "Darn It." What game should you be taking the underdog this weekend? 49ers +3.5. 87% of the Vegas money is on road favorite N.O. In other news, The Huntsville Times printed 12-hour old BCS tweets in yesterday's newspaper. Let's get rolling!
Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos dispatched the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime on Sunday. It was a huge win for the Broncos and it's now a huge story pretty much everywhere, even in Taiwan. For some reason, the Taiwanese people like to tell stories through animated videos that make little to no sense... at least to us. We've got the latest and they're focusing on Tebow's big win, which apparently happened through divine intervention and really pissed off atheists. Check it!
Never heard of @HeavenKODDiva? She'll be getting some run this afternoon as the Miami-based stripper at King of Diamonds who uploaded this photo 5-6 hours ago of herself and a certain Eagles WR at what we'd assume is King of Diamonds. Molly's Twitter profile says that she's "ONE OF KING OF DIAMONDS POLE RYDER." Kudos to the WR for giving us material to get over this BCS snoozer. Who's the lucky guy? He went to Cal. JUMP!
Yes, we'll get off this Jeremy Shelley-Blair McElroy story fairly soon. But how many times do we have to cut through the college football analysis sh*t on ESPN? We broke down the 2012 BCS in a single post yesterday - Shelley. Dude went out, kicked five field goals & won the national championship for Bama. His girlfriend? Greg McElroy's sister who's a frosh at Bama & started dating Shelley while still in high school last year. Kudos to these lovebirds. (@BlairMcElroy)
Jordan Jefferson was 11-for-17 and 53 yards through the air. He added the one interception and 15 yards rushing on 14 carries. Impressive. Of course it didn't take long for the hate to get ramped up. Was it just the racist contingent going nuts? Nope. Even black guy was dropping 'nigga' and 'f-bombs' on Jefferson, who even went to the drastic measure of deleting his Twitter account. Of course our editors have aggregated the best of the Jefferson hate speech. JUMP!
