Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is a dumb thug, this we know. He got suspended at Oklahoma State and he's been dealing with unpaid loans since he's been in the pros. He's supposedly got plenty of talent, though. Too bad he didn't show it in 2011, a season where he caught 63 balls for 928 yards -- not bad, but certainly not as advertised. So what is Bryant doing this offseason? Fightin' Weezy in the club. Seriously. JUMP!
It's the tweet that sent bloggers & Twitter dorks into a frenzy 20 minutes ago. Rob Lowe, off the radar to most sports junkies, is now reporting that Peyton Manning's NFL career is over. How does he know such news? He has f*cking sources, baby! Lowe went on to tweet Rich Eisen asking him what he's hearing. Lowe then told his followers he hopes his sources are wrong. Can we all just say a little prayer that Lowe is right and scooped Schefter & Mort? Please. (via @RobLowe)
The big NFL news being floated today by ESPN and gobbled up by the Denver Post and the rest of the gobblers is that Baby Jesus played most of the 2nd half in Foxboro in severe pain. Chest bruises and torn rib cartilage. But Tim Tebow can't possibly be sidelined by such minor injuries. Oh, but he wouldn't have played this week if Denver beat the Patriots, says the Post. Things were so bad for BJ that he somehow muscled out a smile for goofy Pats kid. JUMP!
As the Alabama fans on Twitter like to say, Dre Kirkpatrick is a 'former BAMA player & student.' Way back like nine days ago he was a current BAMA football player whom ESPN has rated 8th overall on their 'Big Board.' Well, he was picked up in Florida this morning for pot possession. No biggie. The usual 20 grams of weed. But who was with him and also arrested for pot possession? Some dude who used to play for BAMA and now works for Under Armour. JUMP!
Benicia (CA) Police Log for Saturday, January 14, 5:16 p.m. PST: Dispatch received a call of a woman screaming inside an apartment on Buchanan Street. It turns out she was cheering for a football game, more than likely the crazy finish to the San Francisco 49ers playoff game. Let's think about this for a minute: California, just after 5 p.m. EST, football game, 40 miles from Candlestick Park. Yeah, we'll go with the 49ers game. This one seems to add up. She wasn't being beaten.
The Juice is loose! Or at least his Florida home is. Wife killer, kidnapper and former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson is in foreclosure. The bank decided to take away Simpson's Miami home, which he won't be needing anytime soon anyway, because he owes them more than $700,000. It's really too bad when such a swell guy happens upon misfortune. Although maybe he could repay the bank in cigarettes. Here are the details. Check it!
The new thing to do, if you work for an airline, is to taunt the losing playoff football team's fans when they happen to be in your city. It started in Denver, when some folks who work for United decided to stick it in the craw of Pittsburgh Steelers fans by posting a message on the big board at the gate about Tim Tebow. They followed suit over the weekend in San Francisco, when some 9ers fans who work for Virgin decided to stick it to Saints fans with a Jay-Z reference. JUMP!
We're still getting submissions for our 2012 Alabama BCS Trophy Tour gallery, but figured you guys would appreciate a select few to wet your appetite. We've tried to bust through the Dr. Pepper photo gallery site to no avail so if you come across the secret sauce, pass it along. As for the fans, we've yet to see the real superfans with the face paint, shirts off, etc. This is still pure Alabama, though. Good work, Bammers. JUMP!
Billionaire Donald Trump is a fan of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Or at least he's a fan of breast cancer research. The Celebrity Apprentice host dropped a lot of dough at charity auction for breast cancer research on a signed Tim Tebow helmet and jersey. Hopefully, Trump and his gigantic ego won't ruin those things like he ruined the USFL. We've got the story for you right here. Check it!
Alabama fans are reportedly waiting four hours to get their picture taken with the BCS trophy, according to the news channels that are actually covering people taking their photo with the BCS trophy. We're still putting the finishing touches on a stellar Alabama fan BCS trophy experience post so if you've been at one of the Kroger, Publix, Academy Sports stops and have a photo we need to see, send it in: firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a worst-case scenario for State Farm Insurance last night on national television. How many times did the State Farm commercial featuring Aaron Rodgers run? 10? 14? So that, combined with America's jealousy towards Rodgers, made for some serious NSFW action on Twitter last night for a lily white guy who isn't used to receiving the f-bomb treatment. Our editors scoped out 19 favorites and serve them up for you haters. JUMP!
Imagine you & a buddy head over to Applebees to get the 2 for $20, watch some football & pound some 23 oz. beers. You just happen to be 49ers fans living in the Atlanta area. Then, imagine a convicted felon just happens to be at Applebees & is a Saints fan. It just happens to be the day when the Saints & 49ers are facing off in the NFL Divisional round. The 49ers score, you cheer & Saints fan tells you he's going to shut your ass up for good. What happens next? Gunshots. JUMP!
We are introducing the Aaron Rodgers' face. This is what happens when you miss a wide open receiver and you are forced to settle for a field goal. It is a look of pure anger and frustration. Cheer up Aaron, the cast of Napoleon Dynamite was in the crowd to watch you in this playoff game. Of course FOX plugged this in for their new show that starts tonight. I doubt they give two shits about the Green Bay Packers or the New York Giants. JUMP!
Name these old farts at M&T Bank Stadium where the Baltimore Ravens took on the Houston Texans game. What the hell are kinda gloves are they wearing, what is that in your hand, and what the hell is kind of helmet is that? Also spotted in the crowd were two Texas cowboys in the crowd. I guess it's true, only steers and queers come from Texas.There was also a girl in the crowd with a mustache. JUMP!
You know what sucks for old(er) sideline reporters like Lesley Visser? Getting sent to Green Bay where she's working a Fox game. Yeah, so she'll get the post-game interview with Aaron Rodgers and that'll be that. We hadn't seen Lesley, 58, since her March Madness last year when something very strange was going on with her hair. Flash-forward to today's CBS pregame. Homegirl has the hair in order, the facelift is keeping her young. Love it, girl.
The Denver Broncos are getting pounded by the New England Patriots in Foxboro where Tim Tebow was pouting on the sidelines during the rout. Bill Belichick bundled up in his hoodie making him look like a Jedi warrior from Star Wars. It's going to take a miracle to even give Tim Tebow a chance to have "Tebow Time" where he can lead a comeback. I doubt this is easy to do when it's 26 degrees out. JUMP!
Not only is the "D Fence" sign played out, it's not even being held right by this guy in the crowd. I'm pretty sure that is a necklace too with a backwards hat. Everything about this guy screams giant douchebag. Also seen in the crowd while the San Francisco 49ers took on the New Orleans Saints was a middle aged woman wearing a wrestling mask. Now that is dedication. JUMP!
We didn't know who porn star Samantha Saint was yesterday, but we certainly do now. It's not because of her performing chops, although she was in Titterific 13. No, it's because she's a Denver Broncos/Tim Tebow fan. Unlike other porn stars who just want Tebow's virginity, Saint is actually a fan of the team and she's also the originator of naked Tebowing. If you don't know what we're talking about, you'll have to check out her Twitter account. Of course, we have a small sampling for you here. Check it!
Say hello to Big Nige. He claims to be a North Cali pimp & rapper and/or singer. We just met him on Twitter thanks to his adventure to a tattoo parlor yesterday where he got a 49ers inner lip tat. That's right, no faking from Big Nige. He's so hardcore it makes our white asses feel like curling up in the fetal position. Seriously, no tattoo artist is getting anywhere near our lip with that gun. Big Nige nutted up for the playoffs run. You've been warned, Saints fan. JUMP!
