Video: Just call him Johnny Perfect

Nobody has made a bigger name for themselves doing trick basketball shots than YouTube sensation Dude Perfect. These guys became famous back in 2009 when one of them made a shot from the upper deck at Kyle Field in College Station. Well, they are back, and have the Aggies Heisman Trophy-winning QB joining them to perform some crazy impressive trick shots of his own. Checkout Johnny...

Report: Cousin of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is who Manti Te’o allegedly was speaking to

We still don’t believe the claim from Ronaiah Tuiasosopo was the voice on the phone with Manti Te’o, like his attorney was claiming yesterday. While it is almost a certainty that Tuiasosopo was the mastermind behind this entire odd story, it is relatively clear that the voice we heard yesterday in the voicemails that Te’o gave to Katie Couric was a woman, and not a man disguising...

Photo: Tom Brady has a moat!

There are times that I want Tom Brady’s life. Ya know, when he isn’t losing to the Giants in the Super Bowl. But this is definitely one of those times. The Detroit Free Press was paying very close attention to an overhead video showing the new property of the New England Patriots QB in California. Not only is 22,000 square feet with every single imaginable celebrity amenity,...

Happy Hour – Hoops

There is just one football game left to be played (don’t say two, the Pro Bowl doesn’t count). That means that it will soon be time for all of us to turn our full attention to basketball. The story in college basketball has been that no one wants to be the number one team. Week after week number one has fallen, and it hit a new tipping point last night with Duke getting destroyed...

New Orleans Pelicans along with their logo and colors unveiled

RIP: The New Orleans Hornets (1988-2013) Okay, they were actually the Charlotte Hornets until 2002, but you get the picture. On Thursday, the New Orleans franchise officially announced that the team will change its name to the New Orleans Pelicans for the start of the 2013-2014 season. They also unveiled (prematurely) the new team colors and a new logo. The pelican, is the state...

That money will buy Les Miles a lot of hats

He’s an odd character, as he eats grass, and says some really weird things, but the man can coach football with the best of them. That is exactly why LSU has given their head coach, Les Miles, a huge pay raise. Miles is set to become one of only give coaches in NCAA football that are making over $4 million per season. The new deal that has been submitted will pay Miles $4.3 per...

It’s a man, baby!

From the desk of “you can’t make this crap up,” we have learned in a report from the New York Daily News, that Manti Te’o wasn’t talking to some girl that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo put on the phone for those marathon telephone conversations, but that it was Tuiasosopo himself. Are you freaking kidding me? Well, attorney Milton Grimes, famous for the multi-million dollar judgement...

Miami hands Duke the third-worst defeat ever for a #1 ranked team

“Celebrate good times, come on!” – Kool and the Gang Historic losses usually do not have the Duke Blue Devils as the victim, but that is exactly what took place on Wednesday night in Coral Gables, when the Miami Hurricanes manhandled Duke by the tune of a 90-63 score. The loss was the third-worst ever for a team ranked #1 in the nation. This game was never really close, as...

Report: Jets open to trading Darrelle Revis

After a lackluster 6-10 season that culminated in turnover in the front office as well as on the coaching staff, the new man in charge isn’t afraid to do whatever it takes to improve the roster and the team’s ability to compete.  According to a report from CBS reporter Jason La Canfora, that includes trading star cornerback Darrelle Revis.  La Canfora’s source claims that...

COLT HERO

Irsay pays $8500 to Twitter follower

You can say what you want about the outspoken, mercurial Colts owner, but one thing you can't say about him is that he isn't a man of his word.

Redskins players were duped by someone on Twitter

It has only been one week since we learned that Manti Te’o was involved in a fake relationship with a woman who never existed. While the jury is still out on whether or not Te’o knew about it or as in on it, we do know is that there was a hoax going on. But a “Catfish” scam wasn’t just happening in South Bend, it was also impacting an NFL team as well. According to a report...

Are lasers headed to an NFL field near you?

Is the NFL actually trying to be progressive in their attempts to make the game more accurate? Well, not necessarily But they are quite intrigued by a new technology that is available to inform anyone and everyone of where the first down marker is. The First Down Laser System (try saying that without doing it in a Dr Evil voice), is a creation of Alan Amron. It is in part funded...

Bradley Cooper wants to play Lance Armstrong

There is going to be a Lance Armstrong movie, and an Academy Award nominee wants to play the lead role. It was announced last week that Bad Robot, JJ Abrams’ production company, is going to put out a biopic on the now disgraced cyclist. I am not sure how this will turn into a SciFi flick, but Abrams knows how to keep us entertained. Maybe a monster gives Lance testicular cancer...

After Further Review the Ruling on the Court is Confirmed: Swish!

January basketball in the MAAC is not exactly compelling stuff. Fairfield University in Connecticut is a fine institution and plays in the MAAC, and much like almost every team everywhere is always running promotions to try and get the public to attend its sporting events. They had the “hit a half court shot, win a car” promo on Monday night, and sure enough, they managed to...

Bill Callahan shocked by Tim Brown’s claim

I really never believed this was going to continue beyond a few little clips of the claims on SportsCenter, but I should have known better with it being the off-week before the Super Bowl. But by now, we all have heard former Oakland Raider wide receiver Tim Brown accusation against former head coach Bill Callahan of sabotaging Super Bowl 37 against Tampa Bay. Brown based his claim...

Brian Scalabrine destroys scrubs one-on-one

For some odd reason, people foolishly believed they could beat Brian Scalabrine one-on-one. Ya know, because he was the goofy white guy that sat at the end of the bench during this NBA career. If you remember, we told you about Scalabrine offering a challenge in Boston about month ago anyone who wanted to play him, with the intention of completely obliterating them once he got them...

Report: Nets are still trying to land Dwight Howard

Just one year ago, things started to get really crazy in regards to Dwight Howard and where he was heading to play. Each day, depending on which way the wind blew, he was either staying or going in Orlando. It wasn’t until the past summer that Dwight was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Brooklyn Nets failed to get a deal worked out with the Magic. But just because the...

Transfer picks Nebraska after being pulled over for speeding

This is one way to convince a recruit to attend your school. Pat Smith, a kicker from Western Illinois University, has been checking out schools to transfer to, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers were on his list. He certainly didn’t think that breaking the law would be the thing to help sway his decision to play in Lincoln next year. While traveling to the campus for a visit last weekend...

Titus Young: Give me the ball or I quit

Nobody is going to mistake Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young for former NFL wideout Keyshawn Johnson. But we all remember when Keyshawn wrote his famous book “Just Give Me the Damn Ball.” It was a book chronicling his rookie season with the Jets. While everyone rolled their eyes at his arrogance, there wasn’t any reason to actually doubt his talent, as he was easily the...

Report: Jerry Jones to strip his head coach of play-calling duties

He wants to win, there is no doubt about that, but Jerry Jones is a terrible GM. His latest move is to strip head coach Jason Garrett of play-calling duties. This has been rumored for the last few weeks, as Jones has also entertained the idea of bringing in former Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt. For what it is worth, Garrett is not the offensive coordinator, that’s Bill Callahan...

Patriots fans keep it classy with rude tweets to Torrey Smith about his dead brother

As we all know by now, the Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game a few days ago. That’s old news. And although the Ravens have one more game to play this season, they seem to be focused on the team they just beat. But that’s for good reason. The Patriots and Ravens seem to have a hatred for each other. This could stem from last year’s AFC...
