Some people forgot the Onion was joking about Jay Cutler

The Onion is known for its satire. This is not news to anyone. The Chicago Bears are having an abysmal season. This is also not news. But, after Chicago was humiliated at Green Bay, 55-14, on Sunday, abysmal and anger won out over logic and reason, because some people took The Onion’s story, “Jay Cutler: […]

Jadeveon Clowney likes a picture on Instagram, faces wrath

Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney was too sick to play in yesterday’s game against the Eagles. He was not too sick, however, to “like” a picture on Instagram, and now apparently this is a thing that is an actual issue. Philadelphia Daily News Writer Tom Mahon devoted part of a column to it under the headline […]

Tim Tebow’s Florida criticism proves he has a future as an analyst

Of all the things we’ve ever accused Tim Tebow of being, “objective” is not one of those things. He was a Gator. He won two national titles. He was Urban Meyer’s guy. Tim Tebow WAS the University of Florida. And then ESPN brought him on as an analyst for the SEC Network. Of course, there […]

Luke Wilson may play Roger Goodell on the silver screen

Remember back in June when we told you there was going to be a movie about concussions in the NFL, starring Will Smith? Well, the latest in casting news/rumors is that Luke Wilson is in talks to play NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The movie still doesn’t have a name and doesn’t appear to be on […]

FINALLY, Men’s Health tells us how to talk about sports with women

I really thought that at some point, the Girls Guide to “fill in the condescending blank here” would come to an end. It’s a tired and cliched point. However, Men’s Health posted something yesterday about “the secret to talking sports with any woman” in what was clearly a click-bait post. Men’s Health would go on to […]

Jim Harbaugh says Deion Sanders is full of crap

Deion Sanders, former 49er and current NFL Network Analyst recently made a comment about how current San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh’s players want him gone from the team. A little early in the season for these kinds of rumors, but there you have it. Well, after the 49ers came from behind to beat the […]

Dallas radio guy wants Adrian Peterson to play for the Cowboys

At the end of August, my oldest niece started first grade. Both her parents have PhD’s in physics, so I often joke that she’s already smarter than me, which is probably true. Right now, I must have the reading comprehension of an amoeba, because I had the misfortune of reading the column of a Dallas […]

Tim Tebow was a natural on his Good Morning America debut

Tim Tebow made his debut on Good Morning America during a segment called “Motivate Me Monday.” He looks more relaxed than you could possibly imagine for his morning show debut. More and more people are becoming convinced this television thing might work out for him after all… The segment features Deven Jackson, a ten-year old […]

Chicago Tribune columnist calls Bears season over after one game

Yesterday was not a good day to be a Bears fan and/or have Jay Cutler as one of your fantasy quarterbacks. Chicago not only lost to Buffalo, but they did it at home in OT. Well, Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune wrote a gem of a column (where is the damn sarcasm font when you […]

espnW retracts derided fantasy football marriage rankings

Last week, we were subjected to some asinine, condescending fantasy football advice, courtesy of espnW, in which players were ranked by whether or not they were considered marriage material vs. a one-night stand. Well, apparently enough people found this to be offensive and patronizing, because espnW is now changing their tune. They’ve added an “editor’s […]

NFL wants Super Bowl halftime performers to pay them???

The Super Bowl halftime show has been quite the hot topic ever since Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction during the 2003 contest. Since then, the NFL has picked its performers with kiddie gloves and added double sided tape to the list of wardrobe requirements. Well, now the league is adding something new: pay it forward. According […]
