Graphic Shows Raiders’ Poor Drafting History Will Benefit Falcons

Like the sun rising every morning and the terribleness of Adam Sandler movies, one of the sure things in life is that the Raiders will have a poor draft this year.

The #Raiders history in the #NFLDraft is good...

An Open Letter to Angry Carolina Panthers Fans

Dear Carolina Panthers fans, Surely you’ve seen the 1996 smash hit Happy Gilmore. You know, before Adam Sandler turned complacent and started playing that same lethargic, wiseass dad role he’s written into every one of his movies.

Sandler Compares Shaq To Chris Farley, Has Clearly Lost It

Look, Adam Sandler hasn’t made a good movie in a decade. But because of classics like Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison and Airheads, he’ll forever get a pass with those of us who grew up giggling at his schtick.

Can WE just ban Adam Sandler and Kevin James

from ever saying the most famous words in motorsports again.  Although they were better then the 2010 edition it was still; horrible,  I really do think some NASCAR legends have been turning in their graves after hearing them say those words. This is the 2013 version:   These are classy words and need to said with respect, not the way they said it.
