Gronk Is Living The Dream

USA TODAY – Rob Gronkowski and former adult film star Bibi Jones has hit the Internet, one year after pictures of the scantily-clad woman modeling Gronkowski’s New England Patriots jersey caused a brief stir and forced the tight end to apologize to team owner Robert Kraft.

The photo was tweeted from Jones’ account Tuesday night. In it, she’s wearing a bikini bottom and holding up Gronk’s No. 87 jersey to cover the upper-half of her body.

BiBi Tweeted:

“@Britney_Maclin: Gronk told me he dropped those balls bc he was thinking of me! Gotta get back in his life (:

 

Wow Gronk Killing it with the: ” I cant even focus on football Ive been dropping balls without you.” You don’t get a bigger meat head than Gronk but I wouldn’t have it any other way, the guy is a legend at 23 years old. He has grown men frothing at his lifestyle, wearing his jersey just wanting to be him. He is Football or at least what its supposed to be.

Patriots Pick Up Kellen Winslow Jr

LATimes – Kellen Winslow Jr. has agreed to a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, according to a report Tuesday morning on ESPN.com.

Winslow is an eight-year veteran tight end who made the Pro Bowl with the Cleveland Browns in 2007, when he caught for a career-high 1,106 yards to go with 82 receptions and five touchdowns. He has hit the five-touchdown mark two other times, in 2009 and 2010 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Kellen Winslow Jr has potential to fit in on the field perfectly with this Patriots offense. That being said, I don’t know how well the personalities of headcoach Bill Belichick and Kellen will mesh on the sideline. Winslow brings a hard to contain time bomb demeanor to the team, much like that of Chad Ochocinco minus the Diva-esque behavior.  Two tight-ends of this caliber (Gronk and Winslow) will certainly create a threat for future match ups. Consider Winslow for your fantasy roster, if you haven’t already.

Lock City: Week 3 College Gameday Picks

Ok so far our football betting record is 9-6-1 and looking build this week with todays picks.

 

Virginia Tech Hokies (2-0) at Pittsburgh Panthers (0-2)

This one is pretty simple for me.  Pitt is bad, their D couldnt slow down Cincinnati or Youngstown State.  Dont really see them slowing down Logan Thomas and VaTech.  On the flip side, Tech’s D is good and fast.  I dont see a horrible Pitt offense doing much on that side of the ball either.  I think -10 is a gift cause apparently playing in Pitt has been difficult for some.  I really dont think that matters much here as I see Virginia Tech rolling.

 

Miggles Pick VaTech -10

 

South Alabama Jaguars (1-1) at North Carolina State Wolfpack (1-1)

State started the year on the road with two pretty tough games, at Tennessee and Uconn.  They finally come home on their season opener with an over matched Southern Alabama team who couldnt score a TD last week against Nichols State?  I didnt even know Nichols had a football team.  I dont think Southern gets on the board today and State trounces them by 5 or 6 TD’s.  Dont like the big spreads, but -30.5 is very doable in this one.

 

Miggles Pick – NC State -30.5

 

Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2-0) at Michigan State Spartans (2-0)

This should be one of the better games on Saturday.   The Spartans have looked impressive in their first two outings this season, and even though the Irish did come out a bit flat against the Boilermakers, keep in mind that ND had to travel back from Ireland the previous week, which leads me to take the points here.  Can they win?  Not so sure, but I think its gonna be close and the fact that Im not sure they win or lose Ill take +5 points with a ND team that still thinks they could be in BCS talks at the end of the season.

 

Miggles Pick ND +5

 

Southern Cal Trojans (2-0) at Stanford Cardinal (2-0)

This is another case of maybe, just maybe Stanford can pull this off.  They have won 2 of the last 3 between the two teams and I think they give USC a scare here at worst.  Im taking the points again in this one.

Miggles Pick – Stanford +7.5

Redskin Snapper Breaks Arm, Keeps Playing 2 quarters. Thanks to being Tasered as a kid.

DM – Washington Redskins‘ star Nick Sundberg has attracted plaudits for his bravery after he played two quarters of Sunday’s 40-32 win at the New Orleans Saints with a broken arm. 

The long snapper, who described the incident as ‘the worst thing I’ve ever put myself through’, has attributed his high pain tolerance to the fact that he has regularly been tasered – for fun – since he was a young boy.

Sundberg’s mother, Stacie, works for Taser International, maker of the most common brand of electroshock gun.

When he was nine years old, his mom took him to a Bring-Your-Kid-to-Work day. While at the company headquarters, Sundberg’s mom’s coworkers dared him to take a hit of the taser. 

Sundberg tells the Washington Post that the only reason he agreed to the ‘neuromuscular incapacitation’ was because he figured his mother ‘wasn’t going to let me do it.It turns out he underestimated her. Sundberg was tasered twice that day and apparently didn’t mind the sensation too much.

This is hilarious, guy just regularly gets tasered as a kid and now hes got retard strength and the pain tolerance of an elephant.

Something tells me, his childhood went a little something like this:

Cleveland Browns Going With Gangnam Style Offense In Season Opener

CLEVELANDFollowing a preseason that saw their inept offense make few, if any, strides, Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said his team will try out a new “Gangnam Style” offense in their season opener on Sunday.

 “I heard one of the interns in the front office talking about it,” said Shurmur. “I said: ‘What’s this Gangnam Style thing?’ And he said it’s all the rage. So I figured why not? We’ll go Gangnam Style. You always have to push the envelope and it can’t be worse than the pro style offense that we’re currently running.”

Shurmur asked the intern down to the practice field to put in the Gangnam Style offense.

“Alright, kid, show us what it is,” said Shurmur.

“Wait, you’re serious? Oh,” said the intern. “Well, I mean, if you’re translating it to football, I guess it would be a lot of unorthodox movement and formations. And up-tempo. I don’t know. It’s a South Korean music vi-.”

But Shurmur cut him off. “Amazing. I’ve been in football a long time and I know a genius when I see one. And what you just said is smarter than anything that ever came out of Mike Martz’s mouth.”

Browns players say they are excited about the Gangnam Style offense.

“I think that video is hilarious,” said running back Trent Richardson. “If people are going to laugh at us regardless, we may as well have some fun with it. Gangnam Style offense it is.”

But quarterback Brandon Weeden isn’t so sure.

“Gangnam Style? What is that? Is that the thing the other players were watching on the YouTube?” he said. “I don’t know. I don’t really get it. I just don’t feel like I fit in here. I don’t really get the terminology of the offense or even what other teammates are saying. And their music is so loud.”

Tar Heels Drum Phoenix, Nothing To Write Home About

Will North Carolina be able to compete in the post season this year?  The answer is no.  But the Heels were impressive in their first game under new coach Larry Fedora.  Tarheel fans have a new fast paced offense, and had limited mistakes in the season opener.  Despite not being eligible for the post season, this could still be a good year for UNC. 

KEEPINGITHEEL The North Carolina Tar Heels absolutely killed Elon Phoenix in the opener.  The game went perfect for Larry Fedora in his UNC head coaching debut.  You can’t ask for much more than a 62-0 start to your tenure in a new place and that’s just what Fedora got.  His team was well prepared, focused and despite learning new systems on both sides of the ball, looked pretty efficient.

The praise has poured in for the Heels who were 29th in the AP this week and could conceivably enter the Top 25 with a win this weekend against Wake Forest.  Running back Giovanni Bernard who put up over 200 all purpose yards while scoring three touchdowns in three different ways (rushing, receiving, punt return) and suddenly he’s on the Hornung Honor Roll for the Paul Hornung Award. He also being mentioned as a potential outside Heisman candidate and people are actually serious now.

The defense looked good, the offense looked almost great at times and the special teams set records, not bad at all. Just don’t get over excited Tar Heel Nation. Yes that was a great game, yes UNC looks like they can win a decent amount of games. Yes I can forsee this team doing even better in 2013 with the help of a very good recruiting class Fedora has put together.

But then again, it was Elon folks and UNC didn’t exactly take the foot off the gas in this game at all.  I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know, at least I hope not.  This team could very well be good, but don’t start day dreaming about a top 20 or better finish this year because it’s not going to happen.

They didn’t take their foot off the gas but took their quarterback and starting running back out for the second half.  If that isn’t taking the foot off the gas I don’t know what is.  But still, it was an inferrior opponent. 

The changes in schemes on both sides of the ball will take some work, growing pains will happen.  Gio Bernard is probably going to be a big time NFL player one day and will have more games like he had at Elon.  Just don’t expect 14 different players to catch passes and the Heels 4-2-5 defense to look like the San Francisco 49ers D all year.

No matter what the biggest thing this team needs is to grow together and they need the fan bases support.  The Tar Pit was great on Saturday, but empty seats remained.  A new era is upon us and Tar Heel football has a real chance of turning things around.  Just don’t expect it to be done overnight, and don’t think your fan support isn’t needed, because the program may need it now more than ever.

Tarheel fans don’t show up though.  UNC just does not have the fan support for football games like NC State and other in state rival ECU.  Sure, for a more formidable opponent more fans will show.  The tailgating at UNC is almost non existent.  Unfortunately I do not see that changing, ever.  Hopefully more fans will begin to come out and show support for a program that has been thru a lot the past few years that is talked about so much, I see no need to mention it in detail.  Good to see the boys out there playing their hearts out knowing they will not be able to compete in the post season this year. 

The Tarheels will travel to Winston Salem on Saturday to take on the Demon Deacons from Wake Forest.  Wake Forest struggled to beat Liberty at home last weekend.  They pulled out a close game late, winning 20-17. 

 

Where Will Your Ashes Rest? A Bowling Ball Urn?

KDKA – A Pittsburgh-area bowling fanatic has gotten a Utah company to fashion a bowling ball urn for his ashes.

Forty-eight-year-old Tony Guarino tells KDKA-TV (http://cbsloc.al/MzZc1u ) that his wife Stacy called Storm Products Inc. of Brigham City, Utah, when he began wondering if the bowling ball company could make such a container.

Nothing better than a bowling ball urn for your ashes made by a cult in Utah, you know who I am talking about. 

Company official Mike Stewart (who has never had a drink in his life) says Storm was “honored” by the request and has since delivered the ball.

Guarino, of Wilkins Township, is an avid bowler whose only perfect, 300 game was bowled using a Storm ball.

Stacy Guarino says the ball urn won’t be used for bowling it will go into her husband’s bowling bag along with a ball his father used.

College Kickoff: Why State Will Beat Tennessee

State is starting this season with an experienced group of athletes. 6’6 230 lb Glennon is back with a vengence. He wants to go to the show and he is good enough to get there. He will be a premier QB in college football this year. Tennessee is long out of the SEC title race, they have a sub par defense which has undergone so many changes and lack team chemistry. Although State has younger under experienced line backers the boys up front can hold their own. There is a lot to prove for both sides but state will pull it out.

Or you can listen to this kid:

Judging by the wall decals he is a legitimate fan.
