Not much right now due to be in and out today. But you can guess who I'm rooting for. Have fun and keep it safe.
Yep, they're asking dog's advice now in predicting the Super Bowl. This is getting more unscientific all the time.
It's bad enough when people turn to animals to predict the Super Bowl. At nobody has sacrificed a bird, look at it's entrails to predict the game's outcome, and put the whole dang thing on YouTube yet. But leave it to a wacky morning FM radio show to do the next best (or worst) thing...putting eggs in a microwave and watching them explode.Sadly, it seems Sears has taken down the Magic Favre Ball, so that can't be of any help anymore. Not that it was in the first place.
Want to know what the coolest thing on the internet is? It might just be the Batman & Robin Comic Generator. Just type in what you want Batman and Robin's word balloons to say and off you go. A few examples:The possibilities here are endless.
Joe Theismann's ego wouldn't let him keep his mouth shut about Tim Tebow. He was interviewed about Tebow by Jacksonville radio station 1010XL, where he dropped this little bit of wisdom.Theismann thinks that Tebow should have retired after his college football career ended."Rock star status preserved," Theismann said."Obviously at Florida they don't teach throwing the football," Theismann opined in explaining that Tebow's mechanics are "poor." Theismann also said that Urban Meyer and his staff have "no clue" regarding the process for preparing a quarterback to play "at the next level."Obviously Theismann knows nothing about rock stars, because they can't seem to retire either. Super Bowl halftime show starring The Who anyone?(via PFT)
The following is a clip featuring members of the Washington Huskies basketball team. It plays when the team is winning in the second half of games by a wide margin.America's Best Dance Crew they're not. We Are Heroes could easily have blown the Husky players off the dance floor last year. Heck, if they went up against the crews from the ATL that were in the ABDC Southern Regionals last week I'm sure they would get dominated.(via The Dagger)
To be perfectly honest I've never been a huge Signing Day guy. You can call grown men obsessing over seventeen and eighteen year-old high school boys recruiting. I call it something else.Still there have been some things that have caught my eye.Georgia is paying the price for bungling the search for Willie Martinez's replacement. Losing Da’Rick Rogers to Tennessee is a huge embarrassment. Especially considering the chaos after Lane Kiffin's departure. At least it didn't take over a month to find Kiffin's replacement. Auburn's recruiting class is being hyped up. It looks like some of the stunts Auburn has pulled like the white stretch Hummer limo might have worked. Expect the NCAA to ban Hummers in college football in the near future. German-born Bjoern Werner is a high school defensive end who would rock you like a hurricane. He would, that is, if he hadn't committed to Florida State, that is. He announced his decision today on ESPN. His on-air attempt at a tomahawk chop was a little weak. But it could have been worse. (Insert obvious joke here.)
You knew this was coming. Some internet genius had to link Lane Kiffin to USC's most notorious alum, OJ Simpson. Sadly, this is only in Playmobil-esque computer animation. But given that the real OJ is in jail looking for the real killers, this will have to do.Y'know, Playmobil's missed an opportunity to make money by not actually coming out with college football Playmobil figures. Same with LEGO. Imagine a LEGO version of Stanford Stadium or The Swamp. They're both missing out.
Here's yet another Danica Patrick career milestone not related to her actually winning a race. Patrick will appear in a February 10 CSI:NY episode playing...wait for it...a race car driver. That's a real artistic stretch there. Her character will be involved in the investigation of the suspicious death of a "racing great" played by former General Hospital star and underwear model Antonio Sabato Jr. An underwear model and Go-Daddy spokesperson starring in the same TV show. It somehow sounds appropriate.(via ajc.com)
Continuing with SWRT's coverage of what various corners the animal kingdom think will win Super Bowl XLIV, here is what a bunch of cats predict will happen.In a related front, it appears that the internet is actually made of cats.Well, that would explain why cats like to sit on keyboards.
Did you hear the one about Pitt joining the Big 10? That was the rumor burning up the Pitt Panther nation this weekend. The problem is that it looks like it's not true. Which is a good thing for the Big 10.Pitt joining the Big 10 would do absolutely nothing for the conference, other than give it that twelfth team it needs to got to a divisional championship system. For one thing, it doesn't really expand the Big 10's market. The conference already has Penn State, so another Pennsylvania school doesn't really accomplish anything outside of giving Penn St an in-state rival.And seriously...Pitt? Look at the Big East schools that would be the most likely to be raided. Rutgers and Syracuse would seem to be the most desirable if only for the chance at the New York/New Jersey market. Cincinnati's been the hot team in the conference (pre-Brian Kelly), so it would bring some attention to the conference. West Virgina could bring both market and attention. Pitt? Zero in both areas.Pitt as a Big 10 school really doesn't make much sense. It's only benefit for the Big 10 is that it would be a twelfth team. Other than that it accomplishes little in terms of market expansion.(via Dr. Saturday)
One week until the big game and Super Bowl silliness seems to be kicking into high gear. At least it is in the animal kingdom. Princess, a camel from the Popcorn Park Zoo in Forked River, NJ, was enlisted to give her predictions of who will prevail in Miami.Actually Popcorn Park Zoo sounds like a nice place. It's an preserve for wildlife and domestic animals that were mistreated, sick, or elderly. So a little Super Bowl silliness to raise awareness (and cash) can't be too bad.
If you look over to your left, there's a poll on which "sporting event" is the most fake. Your choices are: WWE Royal Rumble, NFL Pro Bowl, or the Winter X-Games. Have at it!
Stanford has reportedly hired disgraced UGA defense coordinator as an assistant coach. I could have sworn Jim Harbaugh had more sense. Especially after reportedly turning down an offer from Oalkand to replace Tom Cable.Speaking of the Raiders, this is probably how Lane Kiffin reacted when hearing about Martinez's hire.Yeah, Kiffin's job just got easier, dangit.(via ajc.com)
Hello there, Will D. Cat. You're the Villanova Wildcats mascot. Boy do you look menacing, showing off all those teeth. Actually, you don't. You don't look too wild, either. Surly maybe, but not wild.Will D. Cat looks like an old school college mascot, all covered with fur. As opposed ot some of these all soft sculptured and foam rubber cosplay monstrosities out there. He's a lot like The Penn State Nittany Lion, except Villanova cared enough to give there mascot a real name, while Penn St. didn't.Then again Will D. Cat isn't the most original of names. It doesn't quite roll off the tip of the tongue, either. Of course Wild D. here dates to around 1950, much too early for the era where mascots had "hipper" names. Wait, mascots have hip names? Forget I said that.
