Excessive Football Celebration


There is something to be said for celebration.  It’s a way to express emotion.  To mark an achievement.  To announce to society that you have something that your proud of. But, when it comes to NFL Football, things are getting out of hand.  Between the excessive end zone buffoonery and the even more ridiculous fights, NFL football is becoming a little less entertaining to watch.  When we see players obviously stomping on opposing team members, that’s just disrespectful.  To your sport, your team, your fans, your fellow players and yourself.  Maybe, pro athletes should command a little less attention, fame, and money.  Maybe then they would recognize how lucky they really are to have made it to the pros.

Although, we might miss highlight reels like this in the future…

if it’s in the game is it in the game? NCAA football ’10 review

Oh yes, she is definitely in the game

Oh yes, she is definitely in the game

It’s that time of the year again. Time to head to your local electronics store and pick up NCAA and right all the wrongs from last years football season. Unfortunately next gen college football has not been too kind to us. On Xbox and PS2 NCAA football was a wildly fun romp that played differently from madden and in many ways was more fun. Next gen systems though NCAA have struggled with poor graphics, fluctuating frame rates, and plenty of bugs.

Shocker…Lane Kiffin is making news


It just wouldn’t be a normal morning if Lane Kiffin and the Tennesse Volunteers were not making headlines and this morning is no different.  GoVolsXtra.com is reporting that Kiffin and the Vols strength and conditioning coach Mark Smith are at odds and Smith may not be with the team when summer conditioning begins in June.  The issue between the two has not been made public.  I am on record as saying the Vols needed to get new blood and life into the program, but this constant everyday issues Lane Kiffin seems to have with virtually everyone is starting to make Al Davis look sane.
