  • 9 Lamest Bowl Game Sponsors

    9 Lamest Bowl Game Sponsors

    December and January are the months when all bowl eligible teams finally get to pay some bills. None of the gaudy bowl game revenues would be possible without our dear friends the sponsors, so they are pushed to the forefront of the games, athletic integrity be damned. So let’s enjoy the fact that for two […]

  • Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Gets A Gatorade Shower (Video)

    Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Gets A Gatorade Shower (Video)

    A part of me feels like it is a shame to see a cooler full of Gatorade being dumped on the expensive suit worn my Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank yesterday afternoon during his team’s division-clinching 31-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers.  And then there is a part of me that could care less to […]

  • This Day In Sports History (December 29th) – New England Patriots

    This Day In Sports History (December 29th) – New England Patriots

    It was on this day in 2007 that the New England Patriots defeated the New York Giants 38-35 in a game played at Giants Stadium.  The win meant that the Patriots became the first team in NFL history to finish the regular season at 16-0. The Patriots made major upgrades at the wide receiver position […]

    Slip ‘n Slide (GIF)

    When I see things like this I can’t help but ask myself, “why?” Why would they place a slippery floor along the outside of the field, knowing that any player who runs full speed onto it is bound to go for a little slip-and-slide.  Any why along the edge of this slippery area would they […]

  • Reed’s Jacket, Reed’s Jacket, Reed’s Jacket Is On Fire! (Video)

    Reed’s Jacket, Reed’s Jacket, Reed’s Jacket Is On Fire! (Video)

    The Baltimore Ravens have been on fire lately, and so too has Ed Reed, literally! At one point during Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, Reed grabbed a jacket and headed right for the nearest heater, but while that combination may have seemed like a good idea to help the Ravens’ safety keep warm, it […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/26/10 – Aaron Rodgers

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/26/10 – Aaron Rodgers

    Most fantasy football owners who had put their trust in Aaron Rodgers throughout the entire season were dealt a serious blow to their championship hopes after the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback sustained a concussion during a week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.  He failed to do much in that game prior to sustaining the […]

  • Lightning Strikes Twice For Kingsburg High School Football Team (Video)

    Lightning Strikes Twice For Kingsburg High School Football Team (Video)

    During their first game of the 2010 season, Kingsburg High School found themselves trailing San Luis Obispo High School by a score of 15-13 with only 5 seconds remaining.  Standing at their own 20-yard line, the Vikings had one final chance to get the ball into the opposition’s end zone.  They did just that thanks […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Brett Favre Was Here

    Picture Of The Day: Brett Favre Was Here

    On December 13, 2010, Brett Favre was listed as inactive, ending his consecutive starts streak at 297.  Last night his new streak started at one as he was named the surprise starter for the Minnesota Vikings’ Monday night game against the Chicago Bears.  Although, after sustaining a concussion following a Corey Wootton hit, he is […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/19/10 – Michael Vick

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/19/10 – Michael Vick

    Let this be a lesson to all teams in the National Football League:  Never count out the Philadelphia Eagles because as long as they have Michael Vick in their line-up, anything is possible.  Even coming back from a 31-10 fourth quarter deficit, as he and his teammates proved yesterday afternoon during their game against the […]

    Picture Of The Day: Gingerbread Metrodome

    Apparently this is a gingerbread replica of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Vikings.  However, it appears as though this model was created sometime after December 12th, the day the snow came crashing through the fiberglass fabric roof of the 28-year-old building.  Or perhaps it was made before then, and someone appropriately […]

    Run For Your Life! (GIF)

    This Arizona Cardinals cheerleader appears to be taking a cue from her team’s corners, who often look like they are running away from the opposing team’s wide receivers, rather than trying to run with them in coverage.  However, they did do a good job covering the ever-so-dangerous Brandon Lloyd on this day, limiting him to […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/16/10 – Vincent Jackson

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/16/10 – Vincent Jackson

    With Malcom Floyd and Antonio Gates both inactive, many people may have been asking themselves, “Who will Philip Rivers pass the ball to now?”  Anyone who did find themselves asking that very question likely forgot that they still do have one of the top receivers in the NFL in their line-up.  After sitting out the […]

    11 Football Terms Every Guy Should Know

    While much of the football lexicon has been instilled in our brains from a young age, there are certain terms that occur infrequently enough that we might not necessarily know what they mean. While the announcers pretty much have PhD in football, often times the audience does not. Next time the announcers extol the virtues […]
