Purdue fans made inappropriate shirt for 1980s Notre Dame Game

This shirt emerged on Reddit when a user said that his father wore it to a Notre Dame-Purdue game in the 1980s.  Not only is the shirt inappropriate, but it is hilarious.  I wonder if the reemergence of this shirt will inspire current Boilermaker students to create a newer version of the shirt.

Marcus Lattimore runs stadium steps for Under Armour commercial

San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore was shown running football stadium stairs for an Under Armour commercial.  He’s not back to 100% yet, but the fact that he can run up a flight of stairs that quickly, just months after knee surgery is truly amazing. [YouTube]

Chad Johnson tried to top Cardinals rookie by running on inclided treadmill at 24 mph

Last week we showed you Robert Gil, the 29-year-old Arizona Cardinals rookie, who ran on a treadmill at 25 MPH. In an attempt to one-up the rookie, Chad Johnson posted this video on Twitter of him running on a treadmill at a 2.5% incline at 24 MPH. Seems the 35-year-old NFL free-agent still has the athleticism. [SportsGrid]

Danish and Swedish hooligans fight in the middle of the road

A pre-arranged fist fight broke out between Swedish and Danish. Fists were the objects used in the brawl between fans of Swedish’s second-division club GAIS (wearing dark blue) and on the opposite end, the fans weraing red (FC Copenhagen and Swedish first-division side Helsingborg IF). Way to keep it clean, gentlemen. [Dirty Tackle]

Bryce Harper homers in first AB since coming off DL

It only took two pitches for Bryce Harper to fully be back with the Nationals. The 20-year-old Harper, who has been on the disabled list for over a month because of knee injury, hit a opposite field home run on his first swing back Monday night against the Brewer. Harper’s 13th home run on the season earned him a curtain call. I was one of the many who was happy to see Bryce back...

Butler releases video of its Bulldog mascot training for the Big East

With Butler set to join the Big East conference, “Trip”, one of Butler’s Bulldog mascots, set out on a training mission to get faster, stronger and smarter. Safe to say this video is even cuter than the one created when the Butler and Georgetown bulldogs had a playdate. [@ButlerBlue3]

Crimson Tide coach killed ginormous snake

Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Kirby Smart killed a rather large snake and then posed for picture with it.  I’m sure plenty of crazy football fans will now debate whether this is a good or a bad omen for the Crimson Tide’s football season next year. [@marccourville]

Russian Driver hits cows that are having sex while crossing the road

Florida Atlantic unveils new football uniforms

Florida Atlantic University has had a football team for 12 years, and they finally decided to make a switch and get rid of the white helmets.  I love the wings on the sides of the jerseys, which seem to be a staple for Adidas schools that have a bird as their mascot (Florida Atlantic Owls).  The striping on the helmet looks great and I like the logo on the helmet with the number...

Darnell Dockett still likes R. Kelly, no matter what

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett doesn’t care what R. Kelly has done in his past because he tweeted last night that he’s still a fan of him.  This is a pretty ignorant tweet by Dockett, but given his history on Twitter, I’m not sure he’s going to care.  Some things though are better off kept to your self.

It’s hard not to go with a Chris Bosh videobomb as my favorite for this past season, but I really like the one by Andrew Bogut’s at the 35 second mark. Can’t wait for next season.

It looks like the ACC website doesn’t have very high hopes for the Pittsburgh Panthers inaugural season in the conference next year.  Monday marked the day the Panthers, the Syracuse Orange and Notre Dame officially moved from the Big East to the ACC.  Notre Dame obviously only moved for every sport except football. The Panthers went 6-7 last year in the Big East, which is now...
