Loser Tennessee Titans fan video makes Stephanie Langston a star

Tennessee Titans tickets are not hard to get. There was only one fan, a man named David Kline, waiting outside the stadium to buy them. WKRN Nashville reporter Stephanie Langston went to LP Field, home of the Titans, yeah I didn’t know the name of their stadium either. I can’t even name many Tennessee Titans other than Derrick Morgan (is he cut?) or Jake Locker (does he start...

It marks Brown’s second preseason watch list, as he was named to the Bednarik Award defensive...

The next name becoming household in the Aaron Hernandez saga is Carlos Ortiz. He seems to be the second most “person of interest” in this case right after Aaron Hernandez.

SMU Freshman Deion Sanders Jr has gold Versace bed sheets

You gotta give props to Deion Sanders the Elder. He’s certainly providing quite well for Deion Sanders the Younger. And providing economically is job 1 as a father. I wonder what the thread count on these expensive bed sheets are? Gotta be north of a 1,000 to say the least.

New England Patriots Way: the way to INCARCERATION

Sports is filled with air-kissed platitudes that mimic one another “The Butler Way,” “The Oriole Way,” “The Patriots Way.”  So much for “The Patriot Way.” a better theme/mantra for the New England Patriots would be “ain’t nuthin but a gangsta party” or “Thug Life.” Granted, they’re still not as bad as current Ohio State Buckeyes Coach UrbanMeyer during...

Sharknado! Tara Reid! Reviewing the worst film ever through tweets

Drunkest and sluttiest human being alive Tara Reid “starred” in “Sharknado” tonight. What is Sharknado? It’s like “Deep Blue Sea” only much less watchable and way dumbed down. Oh and Tara Reid has had so much work done that she looks nothing like that picture above. Different person today. So a hurricane somehow strikes Southern California, and it brings sharks with...

More Patriots players in legal trouble; Alfonzo Dennard DUI

At this point the New England Patriots should change their team colors from red, white, blue and silver to…orange jumpsuits. If this keeps going, more Patriots will be wearing prison uniforms than NFL uniforms soon enough. Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was arrested for DUI Thursday in Nebraska while already on probation for assaulting a police officer. Remember character...

Sharks GM Doug Wilson: more importantly daughter Lacey Wilson

Perhaps the strongest link between the Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks is Doug Wilson. The current San Jose GM is arguably the greatest defenseman in Hawks history. But the Doug Wilson connection we’re discussing here has nothing to do with assists, points, or +/-.

2013 Big Ten Football Power Rankings: Hip Hop MCs Edition

Can’t leave Big Ten football alone the game needs me. Notorious B.I.G. once said that he raps about the ghetto because that’s what he knows.
