In the latest installment documenting Kenny Powers’ tear through the world of sports attire as new CEO of K-Swiss, his newest marketing guru and NFL quarterback Matt Cassel puts out some pretty $%^#ing impressive slogan ideas. Read More
The US economy is more deeply affected by sports than most realize. Professional football, baseball, and basketball are magnets for dollars spent within and around the cities that have teams. A lockout can have a tremendous impact on more than just the players and teams. Small businesses thrive based upon activity during sports seasons. When a sport such as football fails to deliver, these businesses can be hurt more than the teams and players themselves.
Once the final player was drafted yesterday, the NFL officially reinstated the lockout. Now everyone has to wait for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to rule on the NFL’s appeal of a lower-court ruling that lifted the lockout last week.
Has anyone been paying attention to UCF’s Marcus Jordan…Jordan as in Michael Jordan’s son. The kid is actually quite the baller. He’s 19 years old, and only 6’3″ but and still throw down pretty hard. Check out this amazing dunk against Stenson the other day:
Here are a few more throwdowns by him:
At first I didn’t think this was going to be all that exciting, but I kept watching, and sure enough the heat gets turned up. You think the fan is going to walk away calming…but no, wait for it.
With the NBA basketball season almost at the All-Star, the games are going to start getting a lot more meaningful. Plus, by that time the Superbowl will be over and done with and be waiting to hear the latest in Favre scandals.
Neither here nor there, the reason I’m bringing any of this up is because I just say this Michael Jordan commercial and started missing him all over again. What an amazing basketball player he was. This video just shows how incredible he was….but not through him. I think this is one of the most beautiful and brilliant basketball commercials ever. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
The Amish are pretty quiet bunch. They normally keep to themselves. They wake up even before Mr. Sun and work throughout the day on their farms. They normally only venture into town to pick up a few supplies. Sometimes you might see a few of the “wilder” kids speeding down a hill on his scooter at break-neck speeds, but other than that you don’t see too much in so far as rowdiness.
Well apparently the snow brings out a little wild in this guy. I’m sure there is a little less work to do on snow days. So what better way to pass a little time than doing a little buggy sketching. Shoot, I know I would just love to do this. I’m jealous for sure.
Even though this is from 1972, I’ve never seen it and although it’s almost 30 years past, it still blows my mind.
When Olga performed Korbut Flip at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, it was the first backwards release move ever attempted on the uneven bars.
After the boards displayed a score of 9.8, the audience began to whistle, jeer, stamp their feet, and shout vulgar remarks at the judges in disapproval, believing her score to be too low. However, the judges refused to change her score.
The Korbut Flip on uneven bars is no longer allowed in gymnastics competition because it involves standing on the high bar, a maneuver which is now illegal in the Code of Points.
With winter just around the corner, and the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder, the ski and snowboard season is officially in full swing. What better way to celebrate this awesome time of the year than showing off your great bod in a bikini…even if it is below freezing outside.
There was probably a better place these two could have “hit the bench”. You think they did it on purpose? Well don’t leave me hanging…or maybe that’s the point. Only thing that could make this better is if they had a #94 with the surname Turtle and a #95 with Head.
After the Redskins embarrassing Monday Night loss against Vick and his Eagles, Terrell Owens hopped on the good ol’ Twitter (@terrellowens) and started a small fire. Seems he doesn’t feel that McNabb’s play is worth the $78 million he’s going to receive for the next 5 years. And I guess he makes a somewhat valid argument considering that up through this point Donovan has 11 interceptions to 9 touchdown passes. Anyways, here’s what 81 had to say:
One random Twitter user sent TO this message and photo: “@terrellowens this is in my office & I think its coming down. Ive defended u since 49ers. I’m disappointed”
And this was TO’s response:
He clearly like to get things going. I like TO and I like McNabb but I’m not sure if any of this is necessary. Why go out in the public and make someone feel even worse right after a huge loss like that? The good thing to see is that Vick is back to full form. He’s got legs like he just came out of college. That man is incredible. The Eagles scored the most points in MNF history and Vick became the first player in league history to post at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four touchdown passes and two rushing touchdowns. He was 20-of-28 for 333 yards and four touchdowns and rushed eight times for 80 yards and two touchdowns. That dude is a true baller.
