Hold the football

Many halftime performers are given a football and they have to (awkwardly) pose with it and try to make it look like they know what this foreign object is. Here are the results. 1992: Gloria Estefan awkward two handed hold on a football 1993: Michael Jackson seems to be questioning why this thing is in […]

2 For 2uesday: Football edition

Since it’s football week, I’ll post bits of football terms from bands I would never, ever post. If nothing else, at least you now can spout off some knowledge at the big game.

Let’s Ram It!

Tonight is the first regular season football game for the Los Angeles Rams in 22 years.  My former football love left me for St. Louis but has now returned and is asking forgiveness.  Old wounds may eventually heal but I’m sure the 1986 Rams team will never recover from this video, cleverly entitled “Let’s Ram […]

Biting

I’m loving the World Cup.  It’s full of so much drama, upsets and surprises.  Apparently though, Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has been watching too much True Blood and Walking Dead as he took a bite of Italian player Giorgio Chiellini.
