FSU's #askjameis twitter party probably not such a good idea

FSU’s #askjameis twitter party probably not such a good idea

I’m consistently amazed at how dumb supposedly educated people can be. Yesterday, someone on the Florida State PR/communications team stood idly by and let an absolutely moronic idea come to life…like, in real life. The Seminoles, in an effort to “to continue to find ways to connect our fans and the players they support,” opened […]

Manning rap video sequel falls short

Manning rap video sequel falls short

If something works, you should just do it again right? Uhhh, not always. See Blues Brother 2000 for reference. DirecTV should peep the history books and learn that sequels don’t always mean “better.” Although, I guess you could argue that since I’m penning a post on this second Manning brothers rap video commercial, the marketers […]

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Coach Strong Is Taking the Longhorns Out of Texas (for now)

Welcome to Strongville. In case there was any doubt, the Texas Longhorns are now coach Charlie Strong’s team. Even if he is removing those iconic ‘Horns from everywhere you can see them. I’ll be straight up. I’ve long been a Charlie Strong fan for a long, long time. I’ve also spent a decent amount of time […]

Richard Sherman's Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Richard Sherman’s Perfect Twitter Comeback to Patrick Peterson

Patrick Peterson is a tremendous athlete and football player. In recognition of his skills, the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday rewarded him with a five-year contract extension worth $70M. It makes him the highest-paid corner in the NFL. Such contracts get people talking about the best corners in the league…a conversation that begins to naturally include […]

Thank Goodness for the Draft, So the Stinkin' Mocks Can End

Thank Goodness for the Draft, So the Stinkin’ Mocks Can End

Tomorrow night, Commissioner Goodell will welcome the world to Radio City Music Hall. The Houston Texans will be on the clock. The madness will begin. Thank. Friggin. G-d. Because with that declaration, it will signal the death of the far-more-insane mock draft phenomenon. It can’t come soon enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun to […]

Frank Caliendo's Jon Gruden Impersonation is Pretty Money

Frank Caliendo’s Jon Gruden Impersonation is Pretty Money

Frank Caliendo may not be the best comedian of all time, but he does do some damn good impersonations. Whether it’s former Presidents or famed commentators, the man has a knack for becoming his subjects. We’ve loved what he’s done with guys like Barkley in the past. The latest? Caliendo tackles Jon Gruden…and does it […]

Boise St. Coaches on Broncos: The Recruiting Cavalry is Coming!

Boise St. Coaches on Broncos: The Recruiting Cavalry is Coming!

College football recruiting is, in many ways, a ridiculously silly game. That’s why we like when certain coaches and institutions embrace the absurdity and have some fun with it. Enter Bryan Harsin and the Boise St. Broncos football coaching staff. Petersen and his crew jumped on horseback to announce their intent to scour Idaho and […]

DeSean Jackson Would Look Great in Jets Green

DeSean Jackson Would Look Great in Jets Green

Come fly the friendly skies. News is out today that the Philadelphia Eagles are listening to offers for receiver DeSean Jackson. We know D-Jax already looks good in green, so why not the Jets? Like a lot of other Gang Green faithful, I’ve been waffling during this free agent binge period. I want to believe […]

How About Taking a Stand on Ray Rice...and Cutting Him?

How About Taking a Stand on Ray Rice…and Cutting Him?

Innocent until proven guilty. Yes, I know. Sure. And, alright, perhaps what’s to come in this post  is not well thought out…or fundamentally sound logic. I don’t give a f&*!. Enough is enough. Plus, I’ve got a blog, so I am free to spout my opinion regardless of where it falls or does not on […]

Mr. Derrick Brooks heading to the Hall

In honor of Derrick Brooks’s election the Pro Football Hall of Fame… The inarguable best Derrick Brooks commercial ever made.

10 Reasons a victorious Peyton Manning should ride off into the sunset

10 Reasons a victorious Peyton Manning should ride off into the sunset

Peyton Manning will step onto the Super stage Sunday for the third time in his Hall of Fame career. While he’s declined to talk much about it, the much more interesting story for me is what Peyton will do if he leads the Broncos to a championship at MetLife Stadium. I’ve never known what it’s […]

Derrick Coleman and Duracell send hearing-impaired super-fans to the Super Bowl

Derrick Coleman and Duracell send hearing-impaired super-fans to the Super Bowl

More cool stories from the Super Bowl. The ones that have not a whole lot to do with the action that will take place on the field on Sunday. Derrick Coleman is a fullback for the Seattle Seahawks. If you’ve been paying attention, you know Coleman is the first legally deaf offensive player in the […]
