Last week, we brought you the 30 expensive things you could buy with the estimated $12B that could be lost during the NFL lockout. With football no longer on their schedule, players must seek alternative means to pass the time and, in many cases, make a buck. Before we were internet moguls... we were career consultants! That's why we'd like to offer our services to the hundreds of pro football players who have grown tired twiddling their thumbs. As Tim Tebow or Kurt Warner can attest, idle hands are the devil's tools. See our top suggestions for things NFL players can do during the lockout after the jump!
During the March Madness Tournament, there is always at least one underdog that overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to beat the odds on favorite. Talented underdogs give us a reason to root against the favorite; they make things interesting. They are the David that slays Goliath, the long shot that pays off. The following are some of the best and most surprising upsets in NCAA Championship Tournament history.
One of the great things about college basketball is with so many teams there is bound to be someone that comes up and outperforms expectations every year. Maybe it’s a powerhouse that was down on its luck last year. Maybe it’s a team that was too green to finish the big games. Maybe it’s a team that needed one or two more pieces before they can be called a respectable contender. Check out our sleeper picks for the March Madness Tournament after the jump (shot)!
If there were anyone with a more tense relationship with his coach and the fan base as Vince Young I would be surprised. Sure, Donovan McNabb's tumultuous tenure in Philly was bad, but he and Andy Reid were close. Vince, on the other hand, just can’t seem to handle the pressures involved with playing at the NFL level. While McNabb's at least lead a couple teams to championship games and a Super Bowl, Vince only has 1 Pro Bowl year under his belt and has zero playoff experience. See who we think Vince will play for next season after the jump!
With the San Francisco 49ers hiring Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, it's time to take a look at other college coaches who should make the jump to the NFL. See our top picks after the jump!
If you're like me you probably sit back at least once during the bowl season and think where in the hell do these guys come up with some of the names for these games? Some are ridiculous, others silly, while many are just plain stupid. While the sponsors pay big money to have the bowl named after (or presented by) them in an effort to increase awareness and recall for their product or service, more times than not it leaves a very bad taste in the consumers' mouth (we're looking at you Papa John's!). That being said, there've been some crazy names through the years that deserve recognition for their excellence or lack thereof:
The Angelina Jolie American spy film "Salt" comes out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow (Tuesday, 12/21) so we thought we'd count down the 7 greatest American spy films of all-time. We love spies, plain and simple. They're cool, suave, slick, and they always get the girl. They have the best gadgets in the world, they drive the coolest cars, they know how to do all the things that we want to do but can't. Thankfully, Hollywood has given us plenty of great spy flicks throughout the years, so we can live vicariously. Here's the 7 best featuring red blooded patriots...
The Chiefs have not been that good lately. Heck, prior to this season they were pretty much laughed at; they couldn't win a game (unless they played someone worse than them), they made what appeared to be an incredibly expensive deal with the devil (yes, Bill Belichick, I'm talking about you), and the only thing more dull than one of their games was a Raiders game. However, they did have one thing going for them--their cheerleaders.
The A-Team releases on DVD and Blu-ray today. Unfortunately, it underwhelmed at the box office and failed to meet expectations for most fans. It's another example of a Hollywood remake of a classic TV show that gets everyone super amped only to be disappointed with the end result. Why? Because for some odd reason studios seem to think they have to give the old formula a new twist. Too often it just doesn’t work. However, there's one twist that would most definitely rock: AN ALL-FEMALE A-TEAM!
There are all sorts of personality tests out there that claim to say something about who we are as individuals. The ironi…
This weekend there's only one FBS game on the schedule and it kicks off at 2:30 pm EST at Lincoln Financial Field. I’m talking about the 111th edition of the Army/ Navy game, one of the oldest rivalries in the nation. Navy has been on a winning streak of late with eight wins in a row to take a 54-49-7 series lead.
Thanksgiving Weekend's games saw Nevada upset Boise State and Auburn come from behind to pull out the victory against 'Bama. This weekend's games feature a handful of conference championships (C-USA, SEC, ACC, and Big 12) along with CIVIL WAR! ... In the Pacific Northwest as the Ducks and the Beavers battle in what should be a dam quacktastic contest.
So what’s in a name? Well, for sports teams, everything. The name is the rally cry, the identity, the face of the franchise, and the word that strikes fear in the opponent. A good name leads to a cool mascot, which leads to a source of inspiration for players and fans alike. However, there are some team names that are laughable and/or synonymous with failure and/or humiliation. These are those teams...
Philadelphia must be one of those teams with a no fraternization policy between the players and cheerleaders. how else can you explain the Eagles being as good as they have been for so long? It's all that pent up frustration they release on the field every Sunday! Don't believe me? Well, then check out these lovely ladies and you soon will!
Frank Sinatra sang a great song about it. Too many television shows and movies are based there. The cost of living is outrageous, but what makes it all worth while are not the New York Yankees, Mets, Giants, or Jets. It's the women. For some of the finest in the city not to mention the country you have to look no further than the sideline for the Jets every Sunday.
When it rains as often a it does in Seattle you have to try hard sometime to find a way to lift your spirits. Monday through Saturday I would say that a venti caramel fracino from Starbuks would do the trick, but the real relief comes on Sundays during the fall. I'm not talking about the guys on the gridiron, but the gals on the side of it.
The Next Three Days came out this past weekend. The film stars Elizabeth Banks as a woman accused of murder. Her husband, played by Russell Crowe, attempts to clear her name. The thriller got us thrilled about all the crazy wives and girlfriends who could potentially murder someone, whether it be their mate, their extramarital date, or Jon and Kate Plus 8. Sure, we all get upset at our significant others once in a while and maybe we even fantasize about doin' some damage but a lil' thing called reason comes into our head and we chill the F out. We're not so sure the same would happen for these wild WAGs.
This is the time of the college football season when champions are made and rivals do battle. This week's contests feature the 'Noles trying to spear the Gators, a shootout in the Lone Star State, Cam Newton in the Iron Bowl, Wildcats hoping to get buckwild on the Ducks, Boise State's push for #1, and the Buckeyes trying to avoid an upset against the Michigan Wolverines. Read our predictions then check out our cheerleaders!
Well, folks, it's true things are bigger and better in the state of Texas. The people in this state are crazy about their fooball and it shows. So not only do they take pride in the product they put on the field, they take pride in the babes that represent them! Hey- if you are going to have cheerleaders you might as well have the hottest ones around.
Last week, Oregon barely survived Cal, Auburn didn’t pull away from Georgia, San Diego State gave TCU all it could handle, Gamecocks cold-cocked the Gators. This week's matchups feature a pair of 'Eyes in Ohio State vs. Iowa, a couple of clawed woodland creatures with Michigan facing Wisconsin, a Cali rivalry, Hogs and Bulldogs, and stormy weather for the Hokies. Who will win? Click through to find out!
The Cardinals are not nearly as exciting this year without Kurt Warner leading the way. Lately they have started playing better football, but they are a far cry from what they one were. Anquan Boldin must be pretty glad that he is not a Cardinal any longer. Then again, looking at these cheerleaders, maybe he isn't. Could you leave these babes?
No matter who buys the rights to name the stadium in Denver, it will always be Mile High to me; some things just shold not be messed with. Just like the name is iconic to the game, the Denver Broncos cheerleaders are iconic to the team. Okay, maybe not iconic, but they are pretty darn hot.
These guys have the coolest place in the world to watch a football game- a friggin pirate ship! That alone makes the Bucs the coolest team. Now if they would let us party on board the pirate ship with their cheerleaders, well that would make me a fan for life!
Who on earth would have thought that these guys would actually be a half-way decent team this year? Now when we go to the games we have something to watch besides the lovely ladies on the sideline and the drunk guy falling down the stairs. However, as hot as these babes are I can see myself missing just a few plays on the field while I watch them shake their pom poms!
Last week, Oklahoma and South Carolina got spanked and Stanford embarrassed Arizona. The LSU / Alabama game topped them all. We look ahead to this week's game featuring the Gamecocks vs. Florida, Miss State and Alabama, Ohio State vs. Penn State, A&M vs. Baylor, and K-State vs. Mizzou.
Football is a beautiful game; The classic struggle of man versus man, the pop of pads hitting pads, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, and, of course, the cheerleaders and tailgating. As much as we might hate to admit it, the people networks pay to talk to us during the game are important to the whole experience. You get the right people in the booth and on the field and even the worst games can become worth watching. However, you get the wrong people in those spots and even the best games can become unbearable to watch.
Florida vs. Georgia was the best football game on TV last weekend. Quality football and the World’s Largest Outdoor Coc…
Man craves social interaction. Man thrives on competition and loves to feel victory. So, when your job or your domesticated ho hum drill at home can't satisfy that need, where do you turn? Thank God for fantasy football. The League is all about that. Here are the best 5 episodes so far.
Back in 2003 the mascot world was thrown for a loop when Ole Miss decided to give in to lame, PC related, societal pressure…
This season, the NFL has responded negatively to athletes tweeting on the field and off. Plenty of guys break the rules (Ochocinco, T.O.) and have literally paid the price in the form of fines. In college, it's a different story. Coaches can’t fine these guys. So, what is a coach to do when players are tweeting prior to and during games? What if there are players tweeting inappropriate things during their free time?
