Play football, morons. JUMP!
Back in the Spring it was leaked that John Madden's NYC apartment was on the market and the story kinda flew under the radar. First thought for us was, 'Why does John Madden need a NYC crash pad?' Of course there were appearances for CBS & NBC, but we're still trying to figure out why Mad Dog bought this place way back in 1985. If our memory serves us correctly, the guy was on the road for 16 weeks per year with maybe 3-4 weeks in the city for Jets/Giants games. But what do we know. His 2-bedroom hotel is about to pay him some cash back. This place is valuable. JUMP!

Our camp extravaganza kicked off yesterday in Berea, Ohio where the Cleveland Browns have their indoor complex and training camp facilities.

Yesterday's secret word - COWBOYS - according to PeeWee's Twitter account.

Just 24 hours after TMZ dropped its gallery of Casey Anthony strolling around a Columbus, Ohio outdoor mall wearing an Ohio State hat a radio station is making an interesting offer. Would Casey be willing to remove that hat for some cash? More specifically, would the aquitted child killer be willing to wear the colors from the school up north? A couple of radio show idiots have $10k on the table. JUMP!
It's officially German-American Festival time in Wisconsin, a time when drinking like a fool and sharing a landjaeger with a significant other is considered tradition. It's also time, for the women working the festivals, to bust out their favorite Green Bay Packers dirndls. While we appreciate this Aaron Rodgers dirndl, it's also time to appreciate grandpa's socks/sandals combo. Someone get us a beer - NOW! JUMP!
Free agent receiver Braylon Edwards isn't doing much to raise his stock among NFL teams. All signs point to Edwards being involved in the nightclub fight he was reportedly on the periphery of, this week. The WR says tweets on this Twitter account about fighting were the work of a hacker.

Figured since most of you are Midwesterners, East Coasters and maybe a few Mountain Time Zoners it was worth posting for your amusement. That's the Florida Gators' defensive line. Odds are at least one will end up in prison before 25. You should be scared right now - JUMP!

It's that time of year when The Wiz of Odds goes to town with his roundup of college football motivation schedule posters. After finding this Idaho Vandals poster today it was decided that BC needed to take a look back at the most ridiculous posters ever conceived. There have been the very bad - Purdue o-line in Speedos. And the Duke football team beefed up for the 2009 season. They went 5-7. Here are the worst of the worst - JUMP!

Yes, that is Rex Ryan's calf tattoo. Yes, those are Rex Ryan's hipster Converse kicks. And what can we say about the black socks/black kicks look? Rex turns 49-years-old in December and is getting a jump start on that mid-life crisis. Foot fetish video. Pimping out his wife (seriously). Very NSFW chats between Rex (or his wife) and some foot fetish dude. But that's all water under the bridge now. Rex has moved to the tat stage. JUMP!
Who knew that Trey Burton could whip up a mean doughnut batter? Not this blogging outfit. It seems that the Gators' QB took part (not sure who approved of this) in some cooking show hatched up by a couple of jersey chasers who have a YouTube channel with 54 subscribers. The ladies, Kavita Channe & Jen Soko, have interviewed a number of famous celebrities, but never a 19-year-old QB. Time to ramp up the cleav! JUMP!
