Man, the NFL sure as hell knows how to keep people talking about it all year long, don’t they? The draft is just around the corner, and today they released the full schedule for the upcoming season. It all opens up on Wednesday, September 5th, with the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants taking on their division rival Dallas Cowboys. The first Sunday night game features Stuman’s Steelers heading to Denver to face the now Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos. Monday night? Opening weekend double header once again. Cincinnati taking on Baltimore at 4pm on Sunday, September 10th, and then they let loose the rivalry right out of the gate with the Raiders and the Chargers banging heads at 7:15pm! Damn, I’m ready to go now! Click here to find out who/when/where your team is playing this season…
We’d like to present you with evidence that either (1) people have some serious issues with Big – sorry that’s B1G – Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, who was one of the dudes who spearheaded the creation of the college football trainwreck known as the BCS or (2) Big Jim has begun a fascinating new career in which he can express himself in so many different ways.
We’re guessing that (1) is the correct answer, but Jimbo’s praying that it’s (2). If it is, Jimbo’s just learned that his dream job is a reality.
Daryl’s blog about sandwich stadiums got me hungry and got me to thinking – what do most Americans eat on football’s biggest game day? Plus, what are they serving in the boxes this Sunday at the stadium in Indianapolis?
How do you spend the Saturday before the Big Game? By building a sandwich meat replica of the stadium the game will be played in, of course…
What do you get when you cross David Bowie and Tim Tebow? TeBowie!!! Jimmy Fallon is helping you get ready for round 2 of the NFL playoffs this weekend. It’s even worth sitting through the 15 second commercial at the start. Enjoy!
According to NFL.com and these pictures, the world’s stupidest internet trend has now become a worldwide phenomenon. Pictures of people Tebowing have been taken at every one of the 7 Wonders of the World, and other famous landmarks all over the planet. And all this time I thought “Tebowing” was just another name for throwing a Pick 6. I guess we’ll find out in the NFL season finale this weekend.
In the meantime, here’s a bunch of idiots failing miserably at another stupid internet trend called “Batmanning”. Don’t even get me started on “Planking”…..
In case you’ve missed it, here’s one of the funniest pictures you’ll see this week. The dude on the left is Oregon’s All-American tailback LaMichael James riding Space Mountain before playing in the Rose Bowl. On the right, by the way, is the I.E.’s own Kenjon Barner, who was clearly having a much better time in the Magic Kingdom.
Here’s the one thing more amazing than that picture. Mr. James is one of the toughest motherscratchers you’ll ever see on a football field. How tough? Watch the video below – warning: extremely unpleasant content – and know that dude popped his elbow back into place on his own. He missed exactly two weeks after turning his wing into a cat o’ one tail.
A couple weeks ago, Jimbo copped to the fact that he cries every time he watches the first part of Finding Nemo. If you were wondering what makes a dude who all but laughs at his arm nearly turning into a maraca cry, you just found out.
We assume those Wings Of Death aren’t really going to be on their backs come game time. Otherwise, Stu’s going to think he’s flashing back to seeing Canned Heat at the Swing.
Fans of college football and Tim Gunn have had something in common for years: a profound dread that can only be inspired by the words “Oregon Ducks show off new uniforms”. Prepare to spend January 2 – at least they’re not playing on National Hangover Day New Years Day this year – retching at that which Nike hath wrought this go-round. Coming next week to a Rose Bowl near you – assuming you live in the I.E., of course – it’s OREGON FOOTBALL TRAINWRECK 2012!!!
You’ll be delighted to know that, per Nike, “The new uniform provides enhanced thermoregulation and more durability with the inclusion of Nike Chain Maille Mesh…” Chainmail? Excellent! Introducing the Oregon offensive line..
Maryland to Oregon: Top this for revolting, bitchez!
They said it couldn’t be done. (Who “they” are, we have no idea, but whatever.) There are some sports records that simply can’t be broken. Ever.
Cy Young’s 511 wins? A baseball standard for all time. The Lakers 33-game winning streak? Untouchable in this era of sporting parity. Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 points in a single NBA game? Forever unbreakable. That 109-yard kickoff return Antonio Cromartie had a few years back for the Bolts? Mathematically assured of eternal greatness.
In the world of college football, nothing seemed safer than the proposition that the Oregon Ducks’ ridiculous collection of unis, most based on the colors of barf and bile, would always be, in the words of the Beastie Boys, the most illinest.
Not so fast, amigo. The visual trainwrecks the Terrapins rolled out in last night were truly awe-inspiring, in a record-breaking, stomach-churning sorta way.
