You Guys Are Funny, Wildcard Weekend Wrap Up, Random Links, Videos, Sir Charles as Alicia Keys,

January 12, 2010

The truth of the matter is that I actually knew the details that were in yesterday’s New York Post several weeks ago. I can tell you that thePost‘s report is accurate. The ironic thing is that I was told the couple and the catering hall were haggling over certain security/privacy issues for a while before all the plans were finalized. It looks like Jeter and Kelly were right to be concerned. As for me, I’m holding up well. At least I have this.

Wildcard Weekend Wrap Up

The worst part of Bill Belichick‘s Sunday wasn’t getting crushed by Baltimore. It was his hat. Here is Ray Rice‘s 83-yard touchdown on the first play of yesterday’s game. It’s easy to pick on Neil Rackers, but getting this Tweet immediately after he missed that field goal yesterday was awesome. … The only good part of Donovan McNabb‘s night on Saturday was when he played air guitar and taunted Dallas fans before the game.

Piano Man

With American Idol kicking off a new season tomorrow night, I couldn’t help but think of one of Simon Cowell‘s standard lines that he uses when criticizing a contestant: “That was like bad karaoke.” I’d love to know what Simon would say if he saw this video of Calgary Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf singing Piano Man. On a side note, does anyone know if Phaneuf is still dating Elisha Cuthbert?

Alicia Keys?

It was quite the weekend for NBC. It finally pulled the plug on the Jay Leno primetime experiment, while managing to piss off Conan O’Brien. The network also tortured the country by putting Joe Theismann and Joe Gibb sin the booth for the Jets-Bengals game. And to cap things off, they aired a painfully unfunny version of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Charles Barkley. The confusing thing is a promo that ran during afternoon showed Barkley dressed as Alicia Keys (the musical guest), but that skit never made it onto the show.

Speaking of Announcers

While we’re stuck being tortured by Joe Thiesmann, here’s an example of the fun they have in Italy with their soccer broadcasts. And “fun” is a HUGE understatement based on that link.

The Call Was Better Then The Run

Audio of Kevin Harlan‘s radio call of Ray Rice‘s 83-yard touchdown run from yesterday’s Ravens-Patriots game. I thank all of you who e-mailed, including the folks at Westwood One. Here is Harlan doing his thing.

NFL Leftovers

No one expected Julian Edelman to be Wes Welker, but the least he could do is complete the handoff to a fan. …Steve Breaston channeled his inner Razor Ramon after scoring a TD against Green Bay. … Where does yesterday’s Packers-Cardinals game rank among the top 10 wild-card games of all time?


Mark McGwire just admitted to using steroids during the 1998 season. I know. You’re stunned. You never saw it coming. Anyway, most people look back on McGwire and Sammy Sosa’s home run race as a mockery. Something that tainted the game forever. I look back on it with fondness, because it gave us this
Beyonce & Andy Griffith

We’ve all seen tons of Single Ladies spoofs, but this mash up is not to be missed. It combines Beyonce‘s hit song with the theme toThe Andy Griffith Show, and it’s outstanding!

Shaq fell into the stands and kissed Daniel Baldwin during the Cavs’ game against the Blazers last night. ...People are now messing with Tiger Woods Gatorade products. …Here’s a hockey fight in which 691 penalty minutes were given out.

Tonight’s TV

How I Met Your Motherbegins its string of adding some hot women to their show tonight with guest appearances by Stacy Keibler and Rachel Bilson. (Carrie Underwood joins the show soon.) Meanwhile, Mike Tyson will be a guest host on WWE’sMonday Night Raw.


I thank the approximately 12 billion of you who e-mailed me this truly great video of LaDainian Tomlinson doing the electric glide.

Via Twitter, I found out this video of someone taking out a “mugger” was fake, but it’s still worth watching.

In this video, the guy looks like he’s in his 40s. Also, the guy is a Ravens fan and said he’d jump through the fence if Baltimore beat New England. Isn’t it supposed to work the other way around?

“I saw this at the end of the latest Club Trillion blog. It’s of a guy who does sports reporting in the style of a 1920’s sports reporter.

That‘s part of the reason why I wanted to come here. I think about it a lot.”
