Remember when New Year's Day used to be the greatest football day of the year. We'll just go out on a limb and say the next 48 hours in football will kick the shit out of New Year's Day. Detroit-Green Bay. Nap time during Mia-Dallas. Up all night with S.F. & Baltimore. And throw in Texas-Texas A&M in for commercial breaks. Then, tomorrow, the networks go nuts with at least 7 TV games that are decent & LSU vs. Arkansas. Gobble, gobble. Let's get rolling!
In our search for all things obscure related to the Auburn vs. Alabama Iron Bowl we came across a questionnaire from an Alabama hospital that wants new parents to tell them what team their newborn son or daughter is rooting for. Of course we've always heard these hospitals are kooky about this rivalry, but now we get to actually see how kooky. Alabama sports writer Brian App's wife popped out a kid recently & this was waiting for him yesterday. JUMP!
And Iron Bowl week rolls on with Jake and Too Dope as they smoke cigarettes, a couple bongloads and hammer some MD while anticipating a game their parents have driven into their heads since they were old enough to be pulled off the nipple. Meanwhile, here is Montgomery, Alabama resident Oakley Melton (Alabama fan). Dude has been to every Iron Bowl since 1948. His homeboys keep dying off but Oakley keeps rocking on at 84. One day closer. Let's get rolling!
Via Screencapper ParadigmShift35: The students of Ohio University are out in full force with ill planned body painting. Just a guess that 'I' is dating 'O' and 'Becky' only got in on tonight's MAC action because 'Keith' promised her a night out in Athens where it's either a football game or smoking meth in a double-wide. So 'Becky' promptly scrounged up her sweet Jordache jeans and slapped an 'O' on that gut. Who's ready for some MAC screencaps? JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: We know this -- they like to get in fights before Arkansas Razorbacks football games. We brought you a one-punch knockout yesterday, but we've got something even better for you today. Not only does the fight last longer, but it features some top-notch commentary from the man behind the camera, including the epic line, "Woo! Pig Sooey! Kick his ass!" For this and more brilliant analysis, we've got the video right here. Check it!
Where was Brett Favre around the time the Houston Texans might have been wanting to give him a call about their QB situation? Oh, just in the middle of nowhere Colorado killing the giant elk you see here. In our ongoing effort to keep track of the Gunslinger for you, we came across this photo of Brett and his kill. 'Tis that time of year when hunters drop wild animals. What else you expect this guy to do during his retirement? Sit at home and text? JUMP!
So the logical thinking when the Big Ten went to a bye week and forced the Ohio State0-Michigan game to post-Thanksgiving, was that the annual Mirror Lake Jump would include blizzard conditions and frostbite. Um, it's in the low 50s with torrential downpours in Ohio on this lovely November day. Perfect conditions for tonight's swim, a rite of passage for OSU students who think swimming in a cesspool is a good idea. JUMP!
@XXXBiBiJones had this to say after Rob Gronkowski went in for one of his two TDs last night against the Chiefs: "loving it! (: @RobGronkowski." And then the now infamous porn star went on a wild NSFW (can't-show-you-because-advertisers-would-go-nuts) photo spree to celebrate Gronk's big night. But we can show you the NSFW after the Busted editors spent the better half of this morning making the Bibi Jones collection SFW. BC has you covered this afternoon. JUMP!
That white sign reads, "I Hate Orange and White." It's Thanksgiving Week, but it's also War Eagle/Roll Tide Week. Yesterday we showed you the rednecks who stole an Alabama Crimson Tide flag and flagpole. Now comes this display in Pinson, Al. How big is the Iron Bowl? Fans are already parking their RVs for this one. However, fans aren't allowed to occupy those RVs until Wednesday. Let's get rolling!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: You've heard of Peyton Manning Face. You've also laughed at Eli Manning Face. Now we have Tom Brady Face. Dude, even though you have multiple Super Bowl rings, that smokin' hot wife and a giant wad of money, that face is Internet gold. Thanks to whomever skunked the Gatorade. An entire Brady Face cottage industry will be born after tonight. We checked, @TomBradyFace is available. JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Just when you think disgraced Jerry Sandusky can't get any creepier, we pull something out of the depths that's makes him just that. The good news -- or bad news depending on your perspective -- is you can own it. We've found a signed copy of Sandusky's book, Touched -- The Jerry Sandusky Story on eBay and wait til you get a load of the hand-written message inside. $120 for this! Check it!
Remember last week when BC showed you the numbers proving that Kristin Cavallari banging Cutler - AGAIN - was saving the Bears season? Yeah, well, he's out 6-8 weeks with a broken throwing thumb. Yeah, he needs surgery. OOOPS. Sorry, Bears fan. Kinda jinxed you there didn't we. But there is good news for Cuts-Cavs fans out there. Jay popped the question - AGAIN. Yes, these lovebirds are back on for that dumb wedding plan. JUMP!
ESPN is asking for it by promoting the s#$% out of the #WhenSkipMeetsTebow hashtag that is trending worldwide on Twitter this morning. It's expected that Tim Tebow will lose his virginity tomorrow at 11 ET when Skip Bayless finally gets to meet his gay lover in what should be a giant slurp-fest on First Take. Skip haters have called off work. Tebow supporters are staying quiet. You want vulgar, NSFW Tebow-Skip Bayless tweets? We have you covered this morning. JUMP!
Why is Eli Manning giving us his "Peyton stole my 1989 Griffey Jr. Upper Deck rookie card," face this morning? Well, his Giants had a chance last night to seize control of the NFC East, yet couldn't beat Vince Young. Bad loss, brah. And on the right we have Erin Andrews after a Baylor Bukkake® post-Bears miraculous victory over Oklahoma. The tale of two faces. One giving thanks. One completely lost in his world of childhood memories. Get your ass rolling! Let's go!
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 Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Virginia traveled to Tallahassee to take on the Florida State Seminoles. FSU started 2011 as the #5 team in the nation but have failed to live up to expectations. Virginia is doing surprisingly well and the coach inspired his team by almost losing his life after being shot by a robber. FSU should win this game handily if they aren't looking forward to next week's game against Florida. JUMP!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Penn State is visiting Ohio State in the Horseshoe today at 3:30 EST. Penn State is looking to avenge their loss to Nebraska last week and also try and take their minds off the horrendous Sandusky scandal. This game has been poorly dubbed the "Tats versus Tots" game by some sports writers. I will be disappointed if I don't see an Ohio State fan holding a sign that says "Hide yo kids. Hide Yo Wife". JUMP!
It's the first time ESPN GameDay has ever visited the University of Houston campus and you're only getting this visit because of your prolific QB Case Keenum (stats). What you need to know: Keenum is now the FBS all-time total offense leader. He has an amazing 37 TD to 3 INT ratio this season and threw 9 TDs in one game against lowly Rice. In other words, expect lots of Keenum > Luck signs and even that 'shocker' that has made it to the front of the crowd. JUMP!
