I got hit in the face with a burrito because of fantasy football

Inspired by the Subway footlong wager between Bill Simmons and Cousin Sal, Mark and I agreed to a War Across The Shore. The winner of our fantasy playoff matchup would get to smack the loser in the face with a Chipotle burrito. Plus, the winner earns an extra smack for each 5 points of victory margin....



The ESPN Player Description writer is hilarious

Whoever writes the player descriptions for ESPN's Fantasy Football is hilarious. The descriptions are always amusing. In particular, this one cracked me up:



Chad Johnson legally changes his last name to Ocho Cinco

According to ESPN, Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson has legally changed his last name to Ocho Cinco. I've previously posted about his touchdown antics. He had this to say: "It's something I don't think anyone has ever done before," he told the team's Web site. "Have I ever had a reason for...



Superbowl Sunday!!

This is it...time for a Bears' victory! GO BEARS!!!



Chicago Bears in the Superbowl!

Bears, baby! What an incredible game...they were firing on all cylinders. Could this be their year?



Big Ben's Big Mistake

For anyone that hasn't heard, Ben Roethlisberger is in the hospital because of a serious motorcycle accident, in which he wasn't wearing a helmet and collided with a car. Not just any bike. He was riding the fastest street-legal motorcycle you can buy. Without a helmet. Not the brightest thing to...



No Fun League

I decided to investigate why so many hits in the last few days came from a Chad Johnson story I posted in December. Looks like just a few days back, the NFL's competition committee decided they want to crack down on the touchdown celebrations that the fans love. The league periodically gets tough...



More Super Bowl XL stories

dave submitted some follow-up Super Bowl articles, both from ESPN. The first article criticizes the officiating for being too visible and pushing for a Steelers' win because it's what people wanted. Well, the Steelers can call it even now, as the officials who performed well enough throughout the...



Super Bowl Monday

According to the Detroit Free Press, "a 2005 survey by Harris Interactive conservatively estimated that 1.4 million U.S. adults call in sick the day after the Super Bowl. Most likely to call in sick: males ages 25-44 who live in areas where the championship teams have strong followings." It's supposedly...



Miller beer runners

On the radio this morning they had NFL Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson on talking about how he's got an auction on ebay. As part of Miller's current "beer runner" promotion, he's auctioning the chance to have him at your superbowl party, and as your own personal beer runner for when you run...



Fiesta Bowl observations

dave submitted 2 links to Deadspin stories related to the Fiesta Bowl. The first is about Laura Quinn, whose boyfriend and brother were playing each other in the game. She wore a jersey which had one side for each team, and apparently was shown constantly on camera. The first comment on the page: "Just...



Steelers' mayhem

dave submitted 2 stories related to the Steelers. First, according to The Denver Post, a teacher harassed a student wearing a Broncos jersey because he was a Steelers' fan. A die-hard Steelers fan and teacher at Beaver Falls High School made Vannoy, 17, take a midterm test on the floor because he...



Steelers' fan's heart literally stops after Bettis fumble

dave submitted a Fox Sports story about a guy who had a heart attack when Jerome Bettis fumbled the ball at the 2-yard line in the 4th quarter. Fifty-year-old Terry O'Neill of Pittsburgh says he was watching the game at a bar when he had a heart attack just seconds after Steelers player Jerome Bettis'...



A ranking of Chad Johnson's TD celebrations

The Enquirer has a great rundown of Chad Johnson's TD celebrations, and it also ranks them. I'm including the rankings here, click the article for their descriptions why. Previous article about his reindeer joke is here. 1. The Riverdance, Sept. 25 at Chicago 2. CPR, Oct. 9 at Jacksonville 3....



Chad Johnson's new TD celebration tease

Anyone that's been following the Chad Johnson rollercoaster of touchdown dance over-hype (dave and I know this one all too well) will be intrigued by the latest development dave submitted from ESPN. To recap a little history, Chad Johnson promised an amazing touchdown dance a week after getting fined...



Matt Leinart Pulls an Orton! [Update]

dave submitted a parallel to the insanely popular Kyle Orton story which featured pictures of him getting drunk during a bye week. This time around, deadspin has a story about Southern Cal quarterback Matt Leinart, drunk and all up on some girl at a NYC bar after losing the Heisman. Quick story you...



TO is gone for the season

In another football story at USA Today, much less hot than the previous football-related story, TO will not be returning to the Eagles this season. "I do want it to be clear that this decision is a result of a large number of situations that accumulated over a long period of time," Reid said. Owens...



Panthers' cheerleaders arrested for sex in nightclub bathroom

In the hottest story dave has ever submitted, 2 Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were arrested after they were found having sex with each other in a bathroom stall. In the police report, witnesses claimed Thomas and Keathley were having sex with each other in a stall when other patrons grew angry that...



That magic yellow first-down line

I have always been amazed at how accurate the computer-generated first-down line is and also how it has improved to where it almost never overlaps players and referees. According to an article at howstuffworks.com, "The idea to paint a first-down line across the football field on people's TV screens...



Kyle Orton whiskeys up his bye week

dave writes: "There isn't too much of a story besides he probably should be studying film and not drinking an entire bottle of whiskey." Read on for pictures of a "Jack and Orton on the rocks" from deadspin. Update: Orton's reaction to the release of the pictures has been added to this post after...



T.O. suspended for a week, media circus and douchebaggery ensue

Of course it's all over the news that the Eagles suspended Terrell Owens for a week over what he's calling "a difference of opinion." And articles have been mentioning quotes from a Comcast Sports interview with him. While flipping through the channels yesterday, I caught the interview and it was hilarious....



Big Ten Rules the Roast

After having 3 teams in the Elite Eight, and 2 in the Final Four, and 1 that should have won it all, the Big Ten is not about to go away any time soon. Both experts at ESPN have declared the Big Ten the best conference in football. But, inexplicably, they neglected to mention how good Illinois will be...
