Oh Snap! Moment of the Day: T-Rex edition

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 19, 2010

Somebody dressed in a Tyrannosaurus Rex costume threw the first pitch at a Memphis Redbirds minor league baseball game.Sadly, the T-Rex did better with its mouth than some humans doing the same thing with their hands.World's greatest athletes. Meh.(via Sportress of Blogitude)

What Passes for Life: May 19th edition

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 19, 2010

(What Passes for Life is SWRT's collection of sports and non sports related links and hi-jinks.)Happy May 19th to all the wrestling fans out there. For those who don't get the joke, WWE star Kane goes into a murderous rage when he hears anyone say May 19th. It pretty much was a gag to promote his film See No Evil, and a lame one if that. But it did have it's moments like here and here.Conference expansion won't result in a college football playoff. Because Tony Barnhart says so. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)The first name in reporting the news last. CNN reports on that embarrassing Kobe Bryant photo shoot, a couple of weeks after it really mattered. This is why FOX News and MSNBC are kicking CNN's tail in the ratings. (Deadspin)CBS shakes things up. The Tiffany network moves Survivor to Wendsdays at 8 pm, and moves The Big Bang Theory to the Thursday 8pm slot followed by (Bleep) ... My Dad Says. Geeks and nerds are not amused. (Yahoo! News, The Outhouse)Judge dismisses Jeremy Mayfield's lawsuit against NASCAR. Not even activist judges could believe Mayfield wasn't a meth tweaker. (From the Marbles)Yankees DH Nick Johnson has wrist surgery. There's nothing worse than a Nicked Johnson, is there? (Yahoo! Sports)The catcher on the couch. Texas Rangers' catcher Jarrod Salatalamacchia sees a psychologist about why he can't throw the ball back to the pitcher. Please say this isn't all his mother's fault.

[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT! The eyes have it

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 19, 2010

Oh snap. The bar for Freudian nightmare inducing mascots may have just been raised. And in the original sense of the term at that. These two blokes are Wenlock and Mandeville, the newly revealed mascots for the 2012 London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games respectively. And yes, they both only have one eye. Just keep the obvious joke to yourselves, eh?(apologies as usual to Matthew Gasteier)(via Deadspin)

Look upon Tyler Bray's back tattoo, and despair.

Look upon Tyler Bray's back tattoo, and despair.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 19, 2010

Tennessee, look upon your future, ye Vols, and despair. This is Tyler Bray, a young quarterback who may be the hope for the future of Tennessee football. This is the young man who will be walking in the footsteps of Peyton Manning. Bray may very well hold the fate Derek Dooley's career in his hands.And here's his back tattoo: Look upon his back, ye Vols, and despair.Seriously, that is quite possibly the lamest tattoo ever. Even a Smurf riding unicorn would have rated a little higher on the awesome level here.(via Friends of the Program)

Dawgageddon: Is Georgia becomming...Wisconsin?

Dawgageddon: Is Georgia becomming...Wisconsin?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 19, 2010

(Dawgageddon is a recurring feature of SWRT covering UGA schadenfreude.)There is beginning to be a sense among the Bulldog Nation that things aren't going so well. That a once-proud program is slowly devolving into something else...like Wisconsin.We are not like Wisconsin: a consistenly (sic) good team who plays in New Year's day bowls regularly but can't quite crack the top of the conference...or are we?!? Judging from the numbers, it may be true. Both schools have a 38-14 record over the past four seasons (2006-2009). However, the individual number of victories in each season are different. Last year the Dawgs went 8-5, and the Badgers went 10-3Of course when comparing the two teams the bowl record needs a good looking at too. In the same 2006-2009 period, Georgia has gone 4-0 in bowl games, while Wisconsin is 2-2. Also, Georgia has the advantage of going to the 2008 Sugar Bowl, while Wisconsin never been to BCSbowl game since its last trip to the Rose Bowl in January 1, 2000. And Wisconsin hasn't won the Big Ten championship since then, either. While Georgia has two SEC Championships in 2002 and 2005.So while things may not look so good when it comes to the regular season over the past four years , the Dawgs still top the Badgers in the bowl game picture. The Bulldog Nation shouldn't worry itself too much about turning into Wisconsin. At least until this guy starts roaming Between the Hedges:Then again, having Bucky Badger down in Jacksonville for the World's Largest [CENSORED BY DR. Evil ADAMS] might just disturb Urban Meyer enough to score a win or two against the gators. Not to mention invading Meyer's sweet dreams of him and Tim Tebow frolicking in the Florida sun together.(via Leather Helmet Blog, Bubba 'n Earl Sittin' on the 50)

Terence Moore contributes to LeBron James silliness.

Terence Moore contributes to LeBron James silliness.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 18, 2010

Terence Moore chimes in with his take on the only thing that could possibly trump conference expansion silliness: LeBron James silliness. And this one is pretty silly. Moore's contribution to the silliness involves LeBron going to the Chicago Bulls, and bringing Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers with him. Where does he get such lofty ideas?You can attribute my thoughts on LeBron's future to a mighty whisper in a breeze from the Windy City.There also is common sense.There are also the voices in your head, which don't count as reliable sources. Or common sense, for that matter. LeBron James silliness is beginning to overshadow about everything in the NBA right now, which does the Association a bad service. Moore should keep his eyes on the court than engage in the kind of mindless speculation that only serves as blogger fodder.(via Fanhouse)

NBA Draft Lottery. The New York Nets have the best chance of winning the right to probably draft John Wall. Which means he'll probably end up with the Clippers.

Winner: ESPN, who pretty much get the ACC's rights to digital and mobile media. The loser pretty much everybody else. (Pitt Blather)ABC's underwhelming Fall schedule.

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news) Well, somebody had to do it. Team Speed Kills looks at Kentucky football this week. And stories about Kentucky football are a lot better than mindless speculation and rumors about John Calipari. (Team Speed Kills)Gratuitous Boston College mention of the week. A couple of Boston College bloggers debate if the new ACC television deal with ESPN will stop possible defections to the SEC or Big Ten. (BC Interruption)Jim Delany is Mike Slive's "piƱata."

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 18, 2010

There's no real justification for sharing for this really, it just sucks.What's really bad that the original song by Alicia Bridges isn't too bad for disco. It's a little light and airy with just a touch of sass.

Glee To air after the Super Bowl? Please kill me now.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Give credit to FOX, they don't pussyfoot around when it comes to scheduling. Especially when it comes to the coveted spot after Super Bowl XLV. Unlike CBS, which lollygagged around and picked the dreadful Undercover Boss as for the post-Super Bowl spot, FOX went ahead today and gave a very special episode of Glee the gig. Oh joy.Glee after the Super Bowl XLV. What a combination. If that doesn't say testosterone, then nothing does. But at least FOX goes and schedules one of their hottest shows instead of a newly-minted reality show. (Mind you, Undercover Boss did well ratings.) And it could be worse. Three words: Glee halftime show. No, scratch that. I don't want to give Rupert Murdoch any ideas.(via MSNBC)

(What Passes for Life is SWRT's collection of sports and non sports related links and hi-jinks.)Happy Birthday to Matt Ryan. Matty Ice is 25 today. To celebrate the Atlanta Falcons QB's birthday, the Falcons' radio flagship station changed its name to "Matt FM" for one day. Sadly, the name change is actually slightly better than the stations' current name "dave.fm." Total lameness. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)Iron Man 2 beats out Robin Hood at the box office. Big deal. It's not like Iron Man doesn't have a history kicking archer's butts. (Yahoo!

"Sexy" Lane Kiffin: The last stand?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Lane Kiffin is still making headway in the fight for his life against Heather Mitts in the Esquire "Sexiest Woman Alive Madness" Sweet Sixteen, but it may not be enough. Mitts still leads 57%-43%. Why has Kiffen struggled this round. Well, it turns out that Mitts went to Florida. It figures.It almost the point of no return for Kiffen, vote now, or he'll just have to console himself with that reported $4 million a year deal with USC.(via Esquire)

How to make a FSU  football poster

How to make a FSU football poster

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Want to know what it takes to make one of those snazzy-looking football posters? Old Hat Creative, who are responsible for the 2010 FSU football poster, made a video of what went into its creation. As you can tell, it's a lot of blood, tears, toil, and photoshop.And the finished product?It's interesting to see how the title of the poster went from "Days of the New," to "The Uprising, " to the pretty generic and kind of lame "Committed." Somebody must have remembered that Days of the New were the only band of the late Nineties that sucked worse than Creed.(via Tomahawk Nation)

WAR LAMENESS!!! Tiger fans won't be hearing Justin Beiber in the fall.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Apparently Spencer Hall's attempt to influence Auburn's choice in songs for the intro video for football games has been squashed. It's hard to tell at the moment if the call EDSBS readers to write in Justin Beiber's "Baby" simply didn't get enough votes, or officials at Auburn nixed it for being a nefarious attempt at internet mischief. Either way, the dream is over.(via EDSBS)
