  1. Marquise Cole has to be the worst cornerback in the league

  2. My vice is baseball stadiums, been to 19/30 so far. As others have said it's always good to get involved with the group around you as much as possible though I'd add don't be scared to move around either. By the second quarter/third inning if people aren't in seats start moving forward, if you see people having more fun across the way, just go join them. You're a nameless faceless dot in a mass of people, don't be afraid to fake total overconfidence, you're never going to see these people again (unless it works!) I'd stay for the whole game as you can always just smoke out in the parking lot while the traffic moves out. Oh and only buy small beers, never the larges, in almost every stadium in the country they're not any bigger anyway.

    Not that I've seen, their always with their boyfriends. Or their father, which is even worse.

    Even though I never drink at sporting events (I don't see the point of paying for a ticket only to spend the whole game in the john taking a piss), here's a trick that I've never seen not work: just walk right up to the gate with a beer in your hand. Security will make you toss it, of course, but they'll also think that's all you've got and won't even search you. Another tip: don't get high on the car ride to the game. Nothing sets off alarm bells like walking in reeking like a skunk.

    Carolina Panthers or Florida Panthers? Wait, the fuck am I talking about, no one in human history has ever gone to a Florida Panthers game.

    ReplyDelete
  10. No, this is totally wrong. Stay until the end.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes it is. Especially if you're a fan of who is playing

    No kidding. When I was a kid I went to a Sabres game and the other team (Islanders, I think) scored what would have been the game winning goal with 5 seconds to go, so we immediately left. Turns out the goal was waved off and the Sabres won in OT. And there's about 30,000 people that wish they hadn't left at halftime when the Oilers pulled the biggest playoff choke job in history against the Bills.

  13. I'm sick of Goodell's hard on to put a team in London. That would be a logistical nightmare for that team and their opponents.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 100% agree. Give it up already. Would the incoming revenue stream from the British market be more significant then a US market. I think not

    ReplyDelete
  15. Man, WTF. Just got home from gym and Pats are down 14-3?????

    ReplyDelete
  16. That beer trick is genius. Gonna try that next timw

    ReplyDelete
  17. If Thad fucking Lewis cover +5 (teased) in NO after the Saints had 2 weeks off ill be freaking outraged and appalled

    ReplyDelete
  18. Pats look like dogshit today. Brady has passed for just 25 yards today.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Christ man. Gronk AND Amendola together for the first time this year. Plus coming off a loss, at homem. Really thought a blowout was coming

    ReplyDelete
  20. lulz. Carolina Panthers.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not just that but he's beating the L.A. drum again. I don't think adding two more teams will be good for the overall product.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Move Jax to LA if they can get a stadium and fuck the London NFL idea. Easy peazy. I really do think LA should have a team

    ReplyDelete
  23. God fucking damn. Matt Barkley has to play. Fuck

    ReplyDelete
  24. The owners don't want a team in LA. It's better used as a pawn to get financing for a new stadium.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Totally forgot about that before the game.

    ReplyDelete
  26. American football will never get over in Europe, sorry "mates".

    ReplyDelete
  27. The LA threat is always looming. How the 2nd biggest tv market doesnt have 1 team, when it could feasibly support 2 IMO just mind boggles me

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yea, guess Vick got hurt again in the 2nd. Awful

    ReplyDelete
  29. Considering LA's lost two teams in the past (Rams/Raiders), I doubt they'd be interested in a new one.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It could support one but not sure if it would. The owners think it's best used the way it is and I think they may be right on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  31. If I were Stafford I'd just throw it to Megatron every time.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I know niners are moving to Santa Monica next year. That close to LA?

    ReplyDelete
  33. It won't be from lack of effort which pales in comparison to how the WWE pushes something or someone.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Overall Revenue now is so much more dependent of tv deals then live stadium gates, I think theyd be fine in LA.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Northern Cal. I think it's a big jump from the north to the south where LA is

    ReplyDelete
  36. I feel the British would be more interested in a FG kicking contest then an actual game

    ReplyDelete
  37. I dont know how to judge the Chiefs. They always play close games and have played a weak last place schedule so far

    ReplyDelete
  38. *Santa Clara

    ReplyDelete
  39. The Bills are good at finding fragile QBs.

    ReplyDelete
  40. What good is Goodell doing by sending the Jags over to London every year.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow Pats. 7 pts and deep fumble recovery in a few seconds. Thanks gambling gods

    ReplyDelete
  42. I guess he wants them to hate the NFL

    ReplyDelete
  43. Its always worth trying to check the local sports teams out when you are on vacation, although it does mean my email in-box is truly messed up with the number of teams where I'm on their mailing list having purchased tickets.

    StubHub is a must - there almost always season ticket holders who can't make a game and are selling their tickets. The only time I've really drawn a blank was in Boston recently when the scalpers were just asking to much.

    If you go to Wrestlemania def. check the local games out the few days before. I snagged row 2 seats in the Philips Arena for an insanely close Hawks vs Celtics game. Coolist of all we had the VIP section right next to us, complete with Mark Henry and a couple of divas.

    If you are hardcore baseball fan and you want an experience f a lifetime get yourself to Japan. Its their national sport, the fans are insane and its really rare for non-Japanese people to go so you'll get a warm welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  44. FUCK!! Holding

    ReplyDelete
  45. Of such vital importance to your survival that you're offended that a guy would scout girls while he's there? Get a grip.



    It's sports, it's nothing more than disposable entertainment that doesn't actually mean anything. If it's that important to you then something's lacking.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Free give aways, give them to little kids around you if there are single women around. works like a charm

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes to something lacking?

    I'm just imagining a guy that gets offended when people have fun at a sporting event, what a party it must be to hang out!

    ReplyDelete
  48. WTF was that "illegal swat of the ball" penalty they just called?

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's annoying when people go to games and do everything but watch the game. It hurts the atmosphere.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 6-2 into the bye!

    ReplyDelete
  51. It's also annoying when people take fun nonsense things and decide they're actually gravely serious.

    As others have said in this thread, if you want to study the field as though it's ever going to have some value in your life, you're probably better off staying at home away from those obnoxious fun havers anyway. You could sit in your house and watch the replays and frown and take the whole thing deadly serious the way professional sports was meant to be, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I did not laugh out loud though I do take sports seriously.


    You're there to watch the game.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Also, I said absolutely nothing about people not having fun, that's why I love going to live sporting events and go as much as I can. It's the fun of rooting for the road team and having fun going at it with the home team fans or rooting for the home team and high fiving and cheering after big plays.

    I do not just sit there with my arms folded as you have interpreted.

    ReplyDelete
  54. UNBELIEVABLE drive by Detroit. UNBELIEVABLE choke by Dallas

    ReplyDelete
  55. Somehow it'll still get blamed on Romo.

    ReplyDelete
  56. How 'bout them Cowboys

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    ReplyDelete
  57. Exactly. The worst was the Denver loss, dude threw over 500 yards and was the only reason they were in the game and the narrative was its Romos fault

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well, gentlemen I seek out women at sporting events because I like women who enjoy sporting events. I would love to date a lady who will argue the merits of a 3-4 defense against a three wide running attack.

    A woman who will wear a mankins jersey and cook up boneless wings and talk radio level chatter. A woman who wants to throw the football around and play two hand touch after hitting the showers.

    So that is why I look to pick up chicks at a pats games. Also disgruntled milfs are a horny lot. With many having their tubes tied.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Fuck you I'm stoned. And stick and traffic and drunk not droving

    ReplyDelete
  60. Last year the Falcons were 7-2 in games decided by 7 pts or less. This year they are 1-4. That is called regressing to the mean...

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've been out all day and missed the early games. Came home turned on the TV and the first thing I saw was Calvin Johnsons stat line. Holy shit! There's solid #3 receivers who wouldnt put up much more than that in a season.

    ReplyDelete
  62. And Pryor set the record for longest run by a qb?!?! Crazy day. Why was he in the supplemental draft, was he not kicked off the team until after the draft?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I personally can't wait to bet against them in the divisional playoff round.

    ReplyDelete
  64. .... :( fuuuuuuck that's sad

    ReplyDelete
  65. Absolutely. Theyll be -3 at the most, maybe less depending on who they play. They remind me of the Falcons the last few years, everyone knows theyre frauds.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Washington: "Hey, we lead Denver entering the 4th."


    Denver: "PEYTON AND FRIENDS SMASH PUNY SNYDERS!"


    Washington: "Fuck us."

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yeah. I think it almost went to a lawsuit... wait, no... that was the other Ohio State player who got kicked off early. Clarett, IIRC.

    ReplyDelete
  68. You have the Bengals next week at home, which is somewhat winnable for them.
