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.
As we head into the first football weekend of the year – college ball all weekend with the NFL kicking off Thursday night with the last two Super Bowl winners, the Packers and Saints – just make sure the woman in your life knows you want to watch football.
In mere hours, our long footballless national nightmare will end. Exactly seven days before the NFL returns for reals, college ball kicks off tonight. Even with a concert by Kid Rock and two bands you don’t care about, followed by a throwdown between the last two Super Bowl Champs, college ball starts better. Much better.
Why? Ramifications. Whoever loses that Packers-Saints game will be down a tiebreaker that might matter when we get to January. When Saturday is done, two national title contenders will just about be toast.
Intrigued? Here’s what you need to know to dive into warmup weekend before the big boys get started next week.
Ever hear how totally bizarre and over-the-top high school football is in Texas? We got a taste last year when we went to this place – a high school football stadium complete with luxury boxes. The halftime show was half an hour long and featured this nationally-ranked (really) high school marching band that about half the school participates in. A couple thousand people left the stadium after the halftime show. Seriously.
We won’t even discuss the football game except to say that it was pretty amazing watching our buddy’s entire family melt down when the home team lost its homecoming game. Insane only begins to describe the experience.
Well…at least until you watch this video. Leave your own one-word description for it in the comments section.
