The football season starts this weekend, and in honor of America being whole again, we’re debuting a new weekly feature we’ll run every Friday called “Football Food Porn.” Here, we’ll feature some football-inspired game day meals designed to make you stiff-arm your ordinary pregame bag of chips, and instead strive for greatness. Food porn, after the jump.
Hey, remember when people didn’t hate Dwight Howard? Doesn’t seem like so long ago, does it? Bet people really would’ve eaten up a video like this back in those days. Howard on a trip to China, playing some ping-pong with some strangers, going all Forrest Gump on us? “Look at that fun-loving big guy!” we’d all have said. But no longer. Well, not until he wins a title with the Lakers, anyway. [The Basketball Jones]
What you’re about to see is more or less the reason teams don’t play their starters for long in the final game of the preseason, if they play them at all. Linebacker Sean Spence is an important part of the team’s future – but thanks to the injury you’ll see after the jump, he’s no longer part of its present.
On September 3rd, 2011, Jacob Rainey was a 17-year-old high school quarterback from Virginia with 4.6 40 speed and interest from college coaches. A week later, he’d be laid up in a hospital bed, his right leg amputated just above the knee. Read about his comeback, after the jump.
There’s a lot going on here, and exactly how much of it is real will likely remain a mystery forever, so you’ll have to bear with us. All we can promise is that it’s an issue worth exploring. So explore with us, wouldn’t you?
It’s common knowledge that the Astros are having a bad, bad year. How bad? Well, in addition to the 40-91 record, their players are now getting hurt – in dramatic fashion – in the most routine of situations.
This video’s tough to watch: 34-year-old Russian powerlifter Igor Golushkin, attempting to bench press just over 400 pounds, drops the bar on his chest. He reportedly died from the resulting injuries. Caution: the video’s unsettling.
Via Busted Coverage, the finest purveyor of stadium fights in all of the land, comes this brouhaha from an August 18th 49ers-Texans preseason game. What starts as a small argument featuring some fantastic posturing (“I’m gonna bang on this seat! Look how angry I am!”) soon turns into actual punches being thrown and bros flying everywhere. And, as BC notes, one tiny fan took it upon himself to get involved: yes, that’s a little kid in a Matt Barkley jersey punching a grown man at the 45-second mark. [Busted Coverage]
