With Leather’s Watch This: ‘Could The Florida Gators Beat The Orlando Magic?’

Every year, some poor, lazy, bored journalist’s soul dies a little more as its hands slap feverishly at a keyboard to produce several hundred words and a Mad Lib title like: “Could the (successful NCAA football or basketball team) defeat the (down-on-its-luck NFL or NBA franchise?” For the football argument, people asked, “Could the Alabama Crimson Tide defeat the Kansas...

Hockey, Improving The High School Experience By Hurting Everyone There

I really enjoyed watching this commercial for a Michigan-area high school hockey game between schools Clarkston and Lake Orion, but I can’t settle on a reason why. What I have so far includes:1. As a Washington Capitals fan, the NHL is basically the saddest thing to me ever right now, and I have to remember that I like the sport whether or not it’s crushing my will to live.2...

Scotland Has Pole Dancing In Its Libraries Because It’s A Wonderful Country

My favorite screen grab of the year so far.For quite some time now, we’ve celebrated the graduation of pole dancing from awesome strip club activity to awesome fitness routine, especially since it inspired such amazing events as the United States Pole Dancing Championship and the World Pole Dancing Championship. Hell, it’s even great for charity. If only we could pair pole dancing...

Slow Down There, Go Daddy Nerd

Last week, we showed our respect and quasi-admiration to a young actor named Jesse Heiman because someone at Go Daddy’s ad agency thought that he was king dork enough to make out with super duper model Bar Refaeli for the company’s Super Bowl ad. The commercial was certainly far better than the past several years of Go Daddy’s “Hey, check out our large-breasted models and...

Everyone In San Francisco Gets Free Pudding Because The 49ers Lost The Super Bowl

"I just... I just wish I had some pudding."There was plenty for San Francisco 49ers fans to be bummed about in Super Bowl 47, from Colin Kaepernick throwing the first interception in the team’s glorious Super Bowl history to the team losing its first Super Bowl in six appearances to the questionable no-call on the possible holding on their 4th down play to the Ravens...

Broken Forearm + Shirtless Dancing + Pro Wrestling = Rob Gronkowski Dance Party

So, here’s everything you need to know: Porn aficionado, Tim Tebow f**ker and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski went out dancing at a Las Vegas nightclub. Because he’s Rob Gronkowski, he took off his shirt and acted weird. Because TMZ is TMZ, they filmed the entire thing, posted it online and littered it with ellipses and CAPITAL LETTERS of JUDGMENT~.Near the end...

The Taiwan Super Bowl has happened.

With Leather’s Watch This: Someone Buy Me This Awesome Pig Couch

You know what the only thing worse than reading the endless filler crap that every newspaper and magazine pumps out during the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl is? The endless filler crap that comes out this week. I spent the better part of my day today reading people arguing about how CBS handled the 34-minute blackout during Super Bowl 47 last night. And tomorrow I plan to...

WWE Raw Open Discussion Thread 2/4/13

Tonight, on the WWE Raw open discussion thread:In one of the most brutal attacks ever against Mr. McMahon, Brock Lesnar broke The Chairman’s hip with an F-5 on last week’s Raw. The attack came just as Mr. McMahon appeared ready to fire CM Punk’s associate, Paul Heyman, for his ties to The Shield and Brad Maddox. Lots of questions were swirling in the WWE Universe when Raw went...

Let’s Relive Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva’s Victory Over Alistair Overeem At UFC 156, Shall We?

“I’m going to f*cking destroy him. That’s what I’m going to do.”Those were the words that Alistair Overeem said to UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani regarding Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva prior to their fight at this past Saturday’s UFC 156 event in Las Vegas. To add to that sentiment, when Silva warned Overeem during their stare-down that he “better start showing respect”...

St. Louis Had A Dog Parade And It Was Classier And More Intelligent Than Others

Yeah, getcha some.As with any Super Bowl, my favorite Monday pastime is reading everyone’s analysis of what they loved and hated, but with much more enthusiasm for the latter. My reason for this is that I simply like to turn my brain off and relax a little, because by the time the biggest game of the year has finally wrapped up, I need a little breather. Basically, I agree with...

It’s A Pretty Bad Day To Be A ‘Dark Knight’ Super Bowl Conspiracy Theorist

I have a confession to make – I’m a huge conspiracy nut. However, I’m not saying that I’m the kind of guy who will slap on a tin foil hat every time the government passes a law. I just love watching people dissect the most trivial of things and pretend that it’s code for some massive conspiracy. For example, have you ever watched the Jay Z Illuminati videos? Batsh*t, right...

San Francisco Defeats Truman

In the worst results-reporting since Other Guy defeated What’s-His-Face, the NFL Network — you know, the network with “NFL” in its name — declared the San Francisco 49ers the winners of Super Bowl XVLII, knocking off the Ravens 34-31.@bubbaprog shared this picture via Twitter. I don’t see how the football channel could get the result of the most important-possible football...

Congratulations, Joe Flacco, Now You’re An Elite Television Curser

With Leather Live Discussion: UFC 156

Ever since Georges St-Pierre made his triumphant return to re-capture his UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 154, we’ve been hearing this one phrase thrown around ad nauseum. That phrase? “Superfight”. That’s because Anderson Silva was on hand at UFC 154 in Toronto to watch St-Pierre knock the rust off, and a lot of us believed that was some sort of foreshadowing. Of course...

With Leather’s Watch This: Things You Can Watch Instead Of The Super Bowl

"Look at him throw the sports ball!"I know that not everybody out there is a fan of violent competition like professional football, and some people just aren’t interested in watching the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 47 on Sunday. Thankfully, there are like 8 million channels and a variety of other shows to watch, and that begins and ends...

Alex Rodriguez Demands The Best

Alex Rodriguez has found himself at the center of another steroids scandal, which is something I wouldn’t give a single horseback-riding sh-t about under normal circumstances. But Outside the Lines released a report based on their investigation into the South Florida doping operation run by Anthony Bosch, and it will surprise you exactly zero percent to find out that A-Rod required...

Allow Kate Upton To Take You Behind The Scenes Of Her Mercedes Super Bowl Ad

"On this next take, maybe try no shirt."“A great Super Bowl commercial tells a story,” says some girl as the behind-the-scenes look at Kate Upton’s already-famous Mercedes Super Bowl ad begins. “No it doesn’t,” I reply as I think back to the zero times that I’ve ever yelled, “Shut up everyone, I want to hear the words to this car commercial”, in between...

Rampage Jackson Is Acting Like Rampage Jackson With The Ladies Again

"So we meet again."With what is believed to be his final UFC (or possibly any) fight behind him, Rampage Jackson isn’t really going out the way that he, or any fighter, would have liked, as Glover Teixeira played patty-cake with his face enough to get the W at last week’s UFC on FOX 6 event. So like any pissed off employee on his way out the front door, Jackson was...

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Really Doesn’t Like ‘Girls’… Wait, What?

When I was a child, I loathed the very thought of broccoli and mushrooms, despite having never tried either. My mom would put them on my plate with each meal and I’d either mash them up and move them around the plate, as if to say, “Look, I ate some of them”, or I’d knock them off the table and let the dogs have at them. Even though I had never tried these foods, I had heard...

The NRA Thinks You Should Probably Kill Doug Flutie

A threat to our national security.Gun control debates are at an all-time high. Some people think we should regulate guns to keep bullets from flying out of them and murdering people.

This Dude Should Never Wash His Face Again

Despite being a bro who loves the ladies, I’ve never really enjoyed Go Daddy’s overly suggestive Super Bowl spots, because they typically lack creativity. And that doesn’t just apply to Go Daddy either, as I think that the majority of scorn dished out at Mercedes and its Super Bowl ad featuring Kate Upton stemmed from people just thinking it wasn’t very clever. That’s why...
