Ah you gotta love Danny Woodhead of the New England Patriots; or at least his name. Misprouncing the surname of the tailback who looks a lot like someone who works at Medieval Times caused the NFL Network team, especially Deion $anders to literally lose it during a show taping.
Former Washington Redskins and Notre Dame legend Joe Theismann made a mildly funny malapropism that became epically hilarious once you see the reaction from it.
Bug tip of the hat to Midwest Sports Fans.com on this one. When you see Steve Maricucci on the floor; the only parallel I can think of is the infamous interlude from the track “B- Boys Making with the Freak Freak” off the album Ill Communications.
Here’s the soundbite, and the original bit.
Oh and here’s the video too

In cold-blooded fashion, the Patriots released WR Tiquan Underwood tonight. The move was designed to get more defensive linemen on the field, and they promoted DE Alex Silvestro.
It’s not disciplinary, and the team does want him back next year. It’s just brutal for tonight.
Awful for Underwood. He wouldn’t have played much, but it still sucks. Read this blog entry from this...

The New York Giants have won Super Bowl XLVI. Or, you might say, the New England Patriots lost it. While every losing team comes off a game thinking about missed plays that might have made a difference, the well-coached Patriots are usually a team without regrets. Not so this week, not for Wes Welker, whose key fourth-quarter drop changed the complexion of the game and opened...
There was a scary moment in last night’s Super Bowl XLVI, when QB Tom Brady was crushed by Giants DL Justin Tuck. He got up shaky, and doctors surrounded him.
Quickly, backup Brian Hoyer began to throw. Brady ended up going back in, but he finished 7 for his last 17, and he wasn’t the same.
After the game, I asked Hoyer what those moments were like.
“I just gotta be ready,...
Tom Brady already has built an impressive Super Bowl legacy, but his bid to match the accomplishments of the game's all-time greats was snuffed out by the New York Giants - again.
Brady came up short in his bid to join Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana as the only four-time Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks when the New England Patriots fell to the New York Giants 21-17 in Super...
A season that began with heartbreak for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft ended with another loss.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Tom Brady overcame a rare early Super Bowl safety with a perfect 10-for-10 drive late in the second quarter, and his 4-yard touchdown pass to Danny Woodhead gave the New England Patriots a 10-9 lead over the New York Giants at halftime of the NFL championship game ...

Yes, that’s right. Since there is clearly a lack of opinions on the subject available on the internet, we’re here with our own prognostications for Super Bowl 46!
It’s the Giants versus the Patriots in a rematch of Super Bowl 42 – widely considered one of the greatest championship games of all time – and everyone at R&R HQ has pretty strong feelings...
