How Did I Just Now Discover How Badass Shark Tank Is?

I’m not sure if it’s a rite of passage into being old and washed up or I completely missed the boat, but I found myself watching reruns of Shark Tank on CNBC the other night and I LOVED IT. How have I not been watching this shit the whole time? It has literally everything you could want in a reality show. Underdogs to root for, assholes to see crash and burn while you get some perverse satisfaction from seeing a smug prick get told off by Mark Cuban. Did you know that dude is worth 3.3 BILLION with a B dollars? That’s not just fuck-you-money. That’s fuck-you-and-all-of-your-ancestors-money. How this dude doesn’t just pull the trigger and drop $500k on every idea he sees is beyond me. I’d be a terrible Shark because I’d be throwing money around like Pacman Jones in a Vegas strip club.   Continue reading

Cup Check: Are Baseballs Ruining America’s Pastime?

As summer gives way to fall the MLB postseason is finally upon us. It was a long and grueling regular season filled with errant helmet throws, pointless rules debates, and, worst of all, the Mets. One hot button issue that has taken over the world of contact sports of late has been concussions and the risks they pose for future health concerns. While head trauma is certainly a very real and very scary threat, we witnessed another very scary moment on Tuesday night during the Yankees/Twins Wild Card matchup (at least most guys would consider it scary). I’m hear to bring your attention to another player safety issue that doesn’t get nearly as much press coverage as it deserves: dudes getting hit in the junk. Continue reading

Breaking Down the O.J. Simpson Prison Release Photo

OJ prison release

NY Daily News – The Juice is out and doesn’t plan on going back.

O.J. Simpson left a Nevada prison a free man early Sunday, just minutes after he became eligible for release on parole.

Without fanfare, the 70-year-old signed his release papers and walked out to a waiting driver in a dark parking lot outside the Lovelock Correctional Center, around midnight local time, according to the state’s Department of Corrections officials.

Listen, we all knew O.J. was being released from prison soon, but did it sneak up on anyone else? Ironically, sneaking up on people in the middle of the night is O.J.’s M.O… and that’s exactly where I found myself this morning when this beautiful picture appeared all over the internet. I could sit here with my hot takes and jokes about “The Juice being loose”, which would just trigger my co-blogger DB. Instead, I’ve decided to break down this photo so it gets the credit it deserves.  Continue reading

Best College GameDay Sign – Virginia Tech | Blacksburg, VA, 09/30/17

This week the College GameDay crew stormed onto Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. With GameDay back on a college campus where it belongs, I expected a better turnout than last week’s NYC showing. The nerds at Virginia Tech did not disappoint.

As expected, Dabo Swinney took another beating. This week made more sense since Virginia Tech is playing Clemson, but there’s no doubt that Dabo is the inspiration for a large percentage of all GameDay signs this year. I’m not a fan of how easy GameDay-goers are letting Nick Saban off these days, but maybe we’ll see Saban signs pick up once they get into the meat of the SEC schedule and he does something to be a dickhead.

On to this week’s awards…  Continue reading

Rick Pitino Makes Premature Exit from Louisville

Earlier today the University of Louisville, aka University-6, fired their clean-cut head coach Rick Pitino (as first reported by the Nati Boys Podcast on tomorrow’s episode, subscribe rate and review). It’s hard to see someone like Pitino go down like this, ruining his reputation of always running a squeaky clean program wherever he went. If you can see past the sex scandals, stripper incidents, and improper benefits for players, Pitino was exactly who I’d want to pass off my future 6’9” power forward son to. You couldn’t really ask for a better role model to take the reigns of your son’s development into a man.   Continue reading

Best College GameDay Sign – Times Square, New York City, 09/23/17

I was skeptical when I heard College GameDay was going to be at Times Square in New York City. I wasn’t sure if there were enough die-hard, drunk college kids to produce a plethora of funny signs to pick from this week. Annnnd, I was right. Sure, every major college program has a bar dedicated to their school on game days. ESPN wasn’t going to let us forget about that. The problem is, these people are adults with jobs and lives, not college kids with nothing other than a case of beer, a sharpie, and countless hours thinking of funny signs.

Despite the lack of material, I pulled through, and I think I found some signs worth of being featured in this week’s GameDay Sign breakdown.   Continue reading

Jerry Jones Says “NO EXTENSION FOR YOU!”

Who didn’t expect this? Jerry Jones is not happy with Roger Goodell’s current handling of his star running back’s off the field troubles. At this point there’s not much he can do on the Zeke front as it plays out in court, but that doesn’t mean he won’t go down kicking and screaming.

You know what else is going on in the Commissioner’s office right now? A contract extension. Not so fast my friends.   Continue reading

Best College GameDay Sign – Louisville, Kentucky, 09/16/17

Louisville knew they had their work cut out for them after Columbus’ strong showing last week as Ohio State took on The University of Oklahoma (aka UO). Did they answer the call? Hit “Read More” to find out! (That’s an industry secret to get more clicks and action on your webpage)  Continue reading
