  • Hello College Football! 10 Can’t Miss Games For Week 1

    The summer is basically over, you never got that six pack you said you’d work on, and the girl you met at the bar last week never responded to your Snapchat. But don’t worry! Football is back and all is right in the universe! As is the case with the beginning of every college football season, we say goodbye to some of the game’s best as they move on to the NFL and we say hello to the story lines that will take us from Columbia, SC to Pasadena, CA. This season, we say hello to a brand new conference. The American Athletic Conference is the love child of a fractured Big East and the ambitious FBS also-rans from Conference USA. This season’s version of the conference features Louisville, Rutgers, Central Florida, Cincinnati, UConn, Houston, Memphis, South Florida, SMU and Temple. We will be saying goodbye to the BCS Championship as we know it. We have relied on the BCS to help determine the National Champion since 1998, matching up the top two teams according the BCS computers. Starting next season the NCAA will finally move to a play-off format. Opening up to four teams means there will still be more »

  • Man Meal: The Richard Blais Burger with Braised Bacon, Candied Onions and Cheddar

    If there ever were a burger master, it would be Richard Blais. The Top Chef star is the king of conjuring up creative methods of the burgers and all household foods for that matter. The Atlanta restaurateur and author of the new cookbook, “Try This at Home: Recipes From My Head to Your Plate” gave us the recipe for his signature burger, a roundorbrisket and beef monster with bacon and a whipped cheddar topping. Yes, it just might be (dare I say) the best burger ever tasted.

  • Elliot Johnson Channels NASCAR in Post Game Interview

    Elliot Johnson must’ve been practicing this for weeks. In a postgame interview, Johnson went all Jeff Gordon on us with a hilariously on point monologue referring himself to a race car, thanking his sponsors, pit crew and team, after putting it into high gear on an off the wall triple. The Braves have a substantial lead in the NL race, looking down on the rest of the league at this point. Your browser does not support iframes.

  • Prestigious Culinary School and NY Jets Offer Tailgating Classes

    Now, I know the die hards from Kansas City and Green Bay are going to mock Jets fans till their cows come home (literally), but this is actually a great idea. We know your grandfathers chili recipe has been a staple at your weekly tailgates for over 30 years, but does that mean it’s good? The Institute of Culinary Education and the New York Jets will be hosting a pregame tailgating cooking class to bring your ‘self proclaimed’ master of tailgating skills to the next level. Let’s face it, Adrian Peterson wouldn’t have gotten to the pinnacle of his game without some professional training, and it couldn’t hurt to have a professional train you on grilling. At MetLife Stadium, guests will observe an on-stage demo taught by ICE Chef-Instructors, while they prepare their own meal of: Bacon-stuffed Berkshire Pork Chop, Hanger Steak with Soy-Black Pepper Mayo, Bourbon BBQ Brined Chicken, Grilled Romaine with Creole Caesar Dressing, Grilled Broccoli Rabe with Parmesan and Grilled Lemon Vinaigrette and Grilled Banana Boats.

  • ‘Derp’ ‘Twerk’ ‘Selfie’ Officially Added to Oxford Online Dictionary. Webster is Laughing Somewhere

    Well there it is, we’ve managed to derp our way into the official english language. Today, Oxford Dictionaries announced that “derp” has been added to their online edition. “Twerk” will also be added to the dictionary as part of a quarterly update, which includes words such as “selfie,” a word meant to discribe a self taken photo (usually with a mobile device), “digital detox” for time spent way from Facebook and Twitter, and “Bitcoin,” for the nationless electronic currency whose gyrations have also caught the world’s eye.  Let’s face it, we’ve all had a ‘derp’ moment. I’m having one right now, actually, but to add it to the Oxford Dictionary along side much more prominent words in the english language? I just don’t know. According to Oxford, derp is a mass noun meaning “foolishness or stupidity” or an exclamation “used as a substitute for speech regarded as meaningless or stupid, or to comment on a foolish or stupid action.” Herp derp is also an acceptable form for the latter meaning. Congratulations everyone, we’re idiots.

  • The March On Washington and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream Speech” Happened 50 Years Ago Today [26 HQ Photos + Video]

    The Great March on Washington was one of the largest political rallies for human rights in United States history and called for civil and economic rights for African Americans. It took place in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, August 28, 1963 – 50 years ago today. Martin Luther King, Jr., standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, delivered his historic “I Have a Dream” speech advocating racial harmony during the march and it is still considered to be, arguably, the greatest speech in American history for helping to pass the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965).

  • Michigan Recruit Breaks Nine Tackles for Six Points

    If Madden was real life, it would look something like this. Peramus Catholic and Michigan recruit, Jabrill Peppers, looks like a human pinball, bouncing off defenders as if they were inatement objects, pinging off until he lands in the endzone. Kudos to Jabrill for not losing site of where the endzone actually was after three 360 spin moves. The opposing team, Red Bank Catholic wishes YouTube never existed right about now.

  • Eminem Evokes Old School Rap in New Single, ‘Berzerk’

    Eminem released his first single of his new album a day after announcing the album drop. The single is called “Berzerk” and after a single listen your head will be steaming like a tea kettle, from old school samples of the Beastie Boys Ad-Rock screaming “Kick it!” from Fight for your right and classic rock riffs sampled from Billy Squier’s “The Stroke”. That with a combination of Em scream rapping as if from the padded walls of an asylum will have you cringing in fear while rocking to the classic familiarity of old school rap/rock. Eminem is taking a leap with this one, but who knows, this might be just what glam-rap needs to get a wake-up kick in the balls. Who better to do it from, than the guy who changed the game in his era.

  • Nike Unveils Team USA 2014 Olympic Hockey Jerseys

    Nike has been on a jersey release tear as of late unveiling new stretch and weight technology to football, soccer and now hockey. Last week they released their 2014 Olympic Russian Jerseys and this week they’re releasing a retro style USA jersey that’ll be a sure fire hit with anyone living in the 50 states. The 2014 Nike USA Olympic Hockey Jersey fuses USA Hockey’s rich history and tradition with the performance needs of today’s athletes. Decades of design delivered the inspiration to create a lightweight jersey with distractions removed and range of motion maximized. The jersey draws inspiration from the pride of competing for Team USA by amplifying the American Flag aesthetic through matte/shine stars on the shoulders and bold striping. The patriotic and inspirational message ”Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” can be found on the inside neckline. The USA Hockey Crest has been enlarged and refined to reflect the 80’s aesthetic, while the right sleeve pays homage to gold medals in 1960 and 1980.  

  • 57 MLB Stars Making More In 2013 Than The Entire Houston Astros Roster Combined

    With a dismal .338 winning percentage the Houston Astros are, by far, the worst team in Major League Baseball this year. With that in mind credit must be given to Astros owner Jim Crane who, according to a report from Forbes Magazine, is on pace to make an estimated $99 million in operating income this season – more than any team in baseball’s history. That is nearly as much as the estimated operating income of the previous six World Series championship teams — combined. How is this possible? The Astros started the 2013 season with a payroll of $26 million but have since cut that number to an astonishing $13 million. The team has only one player pulling in more than $1 million this year (Erik Bedard $1.15M). Couple that with soaring TV revenues and you have a very profitable business. Fifty-seven major leaguers make more individually than the $13,000,000 the Astros’ current 25-man active payroll makes collectively. The New York Yankees alone pay nine players more than the Astros payroll. And leave it to Jason Bay, who is not even on a team and earns more than the all of the Astros thanks to an old contract with the more »

  • 5 Professional Athletes And Their Superhero Counterparts

    In contemporary society’s world of mass-spectator sporting events, the athlete can be considered as something of a real life superhero—a famous, high profile figure who children seek to emulate and who always deliver when they are most desperately needed. Moreover, some athletes have freakish abilities that teeter on the verge of being superpowers. This list will look at five athletes—mainly footballers—whose appearance, athletic ability, or personas reflect that of characters in the American comic mythos. Unfortunately the list will only be solely an evaluation of superheroes—a criterion that excludes Calvin Johnson, who has adopted the moniker of Megatron, the Transformers supervillain.

  • Rafael Nadal Hits The Shot Of The Year At U.S. Open [GIF]

    During the first day of play at the U.S. Open American underdog Ryan Harrison hit a difficult shot into the deep corner of the court and not only did Nadal sprint across the court to get to the ball, but sliced it back with an incredible running passing shot. Shot of the year.

  • Insiders Look At The Worst Wildfire In California History [34 HQ Photos]

    For about two weeks California firefighters have been struggling to contain a wildfire that is raging across the Stanislaus National Forest and into Yosemite National Park. The Rim Fire as it is being called is now the largest wildfire in state history consuming nearly 149,999 acres, nearly the size of Chicago. The fire is in a very remote area but it has disrupted hydroelectric power supply to San Francisco and destroyed 23 structures. The view from space is amazing…

  • Cogburn CB4 Real Tree Camo Bike

    If only Robin Hood had this in Sherwood Forest, that old pesky Sheriff of Nottingham wouldn’t stand a chance. But I’m sure today you can use the Cogburn CB4 to sneak up on deer and stuff. A silent assassin, the CB4 produces much less noise than an ATV or truck, the go to get-arounds for most sport hunters today. It’s massive 3.8” tires run at low pressure making it a breeze getting through the thick of woods. The entire body is made of a no glare finish and covered in a camo pattern. And it’s good for the environment! Cogburn CB4

  • Things China Makes (Infographic)

    China makes so many goods, that if it suddenly decided to stop, most of the rest of the world would experience impossibly high demand for many “essentials” of modern life — things like air conditioners, cell phones and personal computers. That’s not all, though, China produces almost 50% of all pork in the world, while also producing the same amount of coal. 

  • Tear Jerker Of The Day: 96 Year Old Man Writes A Song “Oh Sweet Lorraine” For His Late Wife And Wins A Contest

    A 96-year-old Illinois man named Fred Stobaugh wrote a song about his wife of 75 years and when he sent the heart-wrenching ode into a singer-songwriter contest, they decided to produce it for him. When Fred talks about his wife Lorraine now, it’s hard for him to hold back tears after the life they led together he says was ‘like a dream.’ After she died, he was sitting alone in the Peoria home they once shared and for the first time in his life he decided to write a song.

  • Jefferson’s Small Batch Bourbon

    A woody nose with vanilla and golden caramel syrup makes you appreciate small batch bourbons like a french cafe in a mall cafeteria. Small batch bourbons typically blend 200 to 300 barrels  before bottling where as Jefferson’s blends 8 to 12. Yeah, exactly. So bourbon is typically aged in large warehouses, so that hundreds of the barrels can age uniformly. I’m sure you know heat rises, which cause much more volatility in temperature for the barrels high near the roof. Large fluctuations in temperature cause barrels to age faster and in turn lose flavor due to evaporation. Because of this barrels are blended together to keep flavor consistent, but barrels in the center of the warehouse are set aside, because those are always the best barrels for flavor. Jefferson’s basically only blends the best of the best, giving it a “very” small batch title, instilling the quality of each bottle. Going down it’s a velvety smooth and delicate body that warms the palette. The finish is moderate in length, with a tiny kick at the end. $30
