Are You Ready for Some Football!?

September 4, 2008

This afternoon, the defending Superbowl Champ New York Giants host (Colt Brennan and) the Washington Redskins, a game that will kick off the 2008 NFL Football Season. Seventeen plus weeks of beer drinking, score checking, and overall lazy unproductive Sundays are on the horizon. Caaaaaaan yoooooouuuuu dig it?

I can almost hear the collecting groans from wives and girlfriends across the country, as their significant other morphs into a pizza eating, tv watching fatty in front of their eyes!

And even though I still maintain that baseball is the greatest sport on earth (yes I’m one of the few), followed closely by MMA, and then basketball… football has found a soft spot in my heart. I could care less about rivalries or which teams perform well or even who will win the Super Bowl. For me, it’s all about who’s on my Fantasy Team(s)! As long as they stay healthy and perform, I’m G double O D good!

Here’s whatcho boy got. Whatchu t’ink?

What’s In a Name?

September 2, 2008

Recently, two professional athletes did the unthinkable and legally changed their names to their nicknames. MMA fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver, to get around a WWE wrestler’s trademarked name, changed his legal name to War Machine. That showed ’em.

Not to be outdone, NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson added “Ocho Cinco” to his name legally (a name that represents his jersey number).

What is this world coming to? Can you imagine if everyone started doing this!?

We’d have Icemen and Rampages and Buses and Fridges walking around.

What was your nickname growing up? If you could legally change your name to anything you wanted, what would you change it to?

I think I’d go with something like Brad Pitt or Flash Gordon… 😛

You?

Have a great short week gangy!
