Pretty cool story. Random QB from tiny Monmouth College makes a video of himself doing some trick throws, and now he’s trying out for an NFL team. The thing that makes you think with this video is…why didn’t any school other than Monmouth College want this guy? Does this mean that literally every QB in the country at bigger schools than Monmouth can do even cooler shit? Like what can a guy like Drew Brees do? Show me a video of Drew Brees doing some trick throws. Or is this only as impressive as a Harlem Globetrotter? Sure, he can throw and hit some pylons 50 yards away, but can he hit Wes Welker on an easy cross route? Obviously every NFL quarterback can make that throw. Especially if it’s the super bowl to win against the hated giants. Yeah that’s right fuck you Tom Brady.
This summer’s AC trips just got even better. Not sure how I haven’t heard about this but I guess I haven’t been since last summer–all throughout the winter, a $2.4 billion casino has been being built on the beach, strictly to host my soon-to-come craps heaters. Here are the stats:
“With a 20-acre footprint, the 47-story Revel – the tallest building in Atlantic City – covers 6.3 million square feet and features more than 1,800 rooms and suites, all with ocean views. It will have 14 restaurants, many run by celebrity chefs, including Jose Garces and Marc Frangione, 55,000-square feet of retail, a 31,000-square-foot spa, two nightclubs and a dayclub, 10 pools, and 160,000 square feet of meeting space.”
Revel opens late May. I can’t wait. Summer needs to get here.
Obviously you know who Jeremy Lin is. Obviously you know all the nicknames. Obviously you’ve been inundated by the talking heads on ESPN talking nonstop about him. ”Will this last?” ”Will the Knicks get rid of Carmelo now?” ”Will he move off the couch?” Who cares. Just enjoy watching him play, and enjoy a great underdog sports story in the truly horrifying month that is February. This video is an especially good montage of his game (with a great song too) vs. the Lakers last Friday night. Enjoy. P.S. : Summer: Please hurry up. If I see one more girl bundled up in a head to toe winter jacket with two scarves and a hat, I’m going to lose it.
If the title of this post doesn’t make you curious you should calmly navigate away from this page and check out a site maybe more geared to your needs, say Pinterest or GoodHousekeeping.com. Otherwise, like I’ve stated away, I’d like to publicly commend whoever was the first to convince girls that wearing body paint was the same thing as wearing clothing. And I’d also like to punch every guy in the world who works as a “body paint artist.” Besides Anthony Bourdain and Avicii, that guy has to have the world’s best job. His work shift involves flying to a Caribbean paradise and painting nude girls. What are the qualifications for this?
If you aren’t familiar with Blake Griffin, he is a 22-year old, 6’10, 251 pound NBA forward living in LA making $5.3 million a year. When he’s working, he’s averaging 21 points a game and 11 rebounds, when he’s not working, he’s banging supermodels in exclusive clubs all over the world. If you don’t know Blake, at least you know me since I share literally every single one of those qualities with him, except his salary since I obviously make a lot more than that. Regardless, Griffin also happens to be the best dunker in the league, and last night might have been his best yet. If I were Kendrick Perkins I would go home and cry myself to sleep. While wiping tears away with $100 bills. I want to be an NBA basketball player, if you haven’t figured this out by now.
Nothing made me happier than seeing Tiger finally getting back in the winner’s circle Sunday. The staredown, the fist pump, the roar of the crowd, it’s all something that’s been missing in golf the last two years save for a couple of exciting masters runs. Say what you will about him in his personal life, but Tiger is the most important and exciting athlete for a sport since MJ was for basketball. Listening to all these idiots saying “oh Tiger will never get it back, he’s terrible, he’s washed up” has been infuriating. First off, their assumption of “he is terrible” in the context of golf is completly wrong. He hasn’t won in 26 starts. He hasn’t won a major in two years (despite having a bunch of top tens). For any golfer in the world besides Tiger, that woudln’t be a “slump.” That wouldn’t be bad at all in fact. Most golfers would be happy to put together the top tens he’s had. A golfer who wins more than one major in a lifetime is known as a great golfer, let alone someone who wins as many as Tiger. The fact that he won at such a historic pace beforehand is the only reason that discussion is even happening. The second assumption, that “he’ll never get it back” is an even more ridiculous notion. The best golfer in history, the most athletic golfer in history, the best mental and physical player of the sport, the one who pioneered the way an entire generation works at the sport doesn’t just lose it. He just doesn’t. And of course there are still some haters that say “oh there were only 18 golfers this doesn’t count.” Continue reading
If you haven’t been to Vegas yet, calmly navigate away from this site, book a flight, immediately leave work, and fly there. If this seems extreme to you and you’re on the east coast and don’t have the funds to fly across the country, calmly go to a train station and go to Atlantic City. People always claim they don’t go to Vegas to AC because “they don’t want to lose all their money.” The easy solution to this problem is to read my comprehensive guide to playing craps from a few months ago. 100% of people (official survey) who have read it have won money, that’s a fact. Until then, listen to this song on repeat, it’s awesome.
Last night the documentary Prayer for a Perfect Season debuted, and if you missed it, definitely check it out as it replays throughout the week. The film tracks the powerhouse New Jersey high school program St. Anthony’s as they try to go undefeated and defeat their archrival St Patricks (who was ranked #2). The movie reminded me a lot of Hoop Dreams, one of my favorite movies of all time. Worth a watch.
This week, the ESPN Body issue was unveiled, and every year looking through the picture is a little confusing. Obviously no body likes jacked girls, so a lot of the time I just spend about 30 seconds staring at a girl wondering if I’m attracted to her or not. Like I get it…her body is really athletic and in shape…but….do I like that? Turns out in most cases, yes. Just not too muscular. And there’s also the fact that half the pictures are of naked dudes. But that’s what NSD is here for. We’ve sifted through this year’s issue, along with the last few years’ editions, and come up with the best of the best. Nothing too muscular here (sorry Serena Williams fans, she’s not included), and no dong shots either. Just tons of pictures of girls like Stephanie Gilmore, above, and other hot athletes like gymnast Alicia Sacramone, snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, and MMA fighter Gina Carano. Big gallery after the jump.
