For a long time I haven’t had much sympathy for athletes (or celebrities) that go from having millions of dollars to being bankrupt (just because Donald Trump can do it multiple times doesn’t mean you can too). Months ago before starting this blog I had a talk with a friend of mine that was in the NFL. He went from having a million dollar contract to pretty much having nothing and living back at his mother’s apartment. Being the blunt person I am, I pretty much asked him “What the hell happened?!”. He explained to me it was because he got injured and was subsequently released from the team, but that wasn’t what I was asking, the real question was – where did all the money go?
Thank baby Jesus Patriots Rob Gronkowski didn’t get the 2013 Madden cover. Instead it was Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson – sorry Detroit fans, looks like you’re going to have to bring back the paper bags.
Though an honor, we all know what getting the coveted spot on one of sports fans most beloved video games entails – death Injuries. Thus, this Wheaties Box type accomplishment has been dubbed THE MADDEN CURSE. Continue Reading
Once again, twitter is abuzz about our favorite former little pony, Tim Tebow – he is now a NY Jet. One tweeter said that: “Tebow is a great addition to the NY Jets franchise”
In the words of OchoCinco “child please”.
This person was clearly not a Jets fan – because even New Yorkers are up in arms over this deal. The Jets need stability, players focused on the game, and a real quarterback; not the theatrics.
The Jets nursery locker room is already mess with QB Mark Sanchez being the biggest baby of the bunch. Continue Reading
At first we were all pretty sure Peyton Manning was going to take his talents to South Beach and become a Miami
Heat Dolphin; but after Miami became no longer interested, the Titans, 49ers and Broncos all became the front runners in the bid to win Peyton over.
With the acquisition of Mario Manningham, 49er fans were a buzz on twitter this past weekend believeing Peyton would be a sure bet.
Of course not though. Continue Reading
No I’m not talking about the mullet totting, overly tanned bounty hunter Dog. The bounty hunter we’re speaking of is far worse (well according to the NoFunLeauge), Gregg Williams.
For those of you that haven’t heard about the recent “Bounty Program” scandal that has become big news as of late in the sports world, it involves former NFL New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Williams had a bounty system for his defensive players – money he awarded for big plays, including hard hits that took out specific players. Continue Reading
I realize that I haven’t written for the past couple days about sports. Truthfully I’ve been avoiding all sports channels and websites like Michael Vick avoiding dogs. Doing so has been rough.
As most of you know I’m a diehard all things Boston fan. Obviously the Superbowl hurt my heart; a lot. My mother who knows nothing about sports, bless her heart, called me right after the game saying sorry for my loss. Ya that didn’t help much. Anyways with that heartache I decided to take a break for a few days from writing about and watching sports. With this being only the third day in that break, its been rougher than I thought it would. Here’s how my past few days have gone so far. Continue Reading
What do you get when you get when you mix the UC Santa Cruz Mascot and the Planters peanut man? – Victor Cruz’s logo on his Young Whale line.
Victor Cruz of the New York Giants has a new clothing line he’s been working on called Young Whale, not like the sea creature, but whale as in the poker term defined as a gambler or poker player of enormous wealth for whom big losses are not important (ya never heard that term either).
Like most athletes, Cruz has supposedly always really been into fashion:
“I love it,” Cruz says. “I’ve always wanted to be involved in fashion and have my own clothing line and do some things like that. And now that I’m able to have one, it’s amazing.”
Well good luck with that Mr. Cruz. Good thing your football skills aren’t as terrible as your fashion line; because then the Patriots would definitely have an easy win this Sunday.
A Playoff Beard is the practice of an athlete not shaving his (I suppose could be her’s too…) beard during playoff season. The athlete is only allowed to shave once the team: Continue Reading
