I am a patriot, I love my country, because my country is all I know. -Pearl Jam
What’s crack-a-lacking sports fans. I’ll tell you what’s crack-a-lacking. NFL Football is crack-a-lacking. Lockout schmockout. Do you smell it? Ooh, ooh that smell. Can’t you smell that smell? Ooh, ooh that smell. The smell of
death football surrounds you. That’s right. NFL football. NFL Patriots football. Tonight! It’s here. It’s finally here. Hooray football! Like my main Tom Landry always says, “Football is an incredible game. Sometimes it’s so incredible, it’s unbelievable.” True dat. Read More »
Just what makes that little old ant think he’ll move that rubber tree plant? Anyone knows an ant, can’t…move a rubber tree plant. But he’s got high hopes. He’s got high hopes. He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes. -Frank Sinatra
Ok, here we go! I hate to sound like the oldest guy in the barbershop, but lately, when I hear all the criticism flying Tim Tebow’s way, all I could think of were those nasty little naysayers a few years back. All I could think of were those nasty little not today sayers a few years back. Those nasty little no way Jose sayers a few years back. I thought of them and I thought of Doug Flutie. Read More »
Thanks to the good folks over at CBS Sports for this.
Peace out homies. Six two and even!
Anybody know what the Olsen twins are doing these days? Of course you don’t, nobody does. The fact that they have disappeared off the face of the earth is a grim reminder to us all that even the brightest young stars fade away and die at some point. They had a great run, they lit up televisions in American living rooms for years with their antics as little Michelle. But things that great don’t last forever and eventually the girls grew older; their egos got the best of them. They grew too big for Bob Saget’s house and they made the biggest mistake of their lives, they thought they were too good to play the role that they were born to play. Read More »
You know the message that you’re sending out to the world with these sweatpants? You’re telling the world, ‘I give up. –Jerry Seinfeld
On November 29, 2008, things took a turn for the worse for the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. The teams’ star wide receiver, Plaxico Burress, made an ill fated decision that would inevitably alter the direction of the Giants season and the remainder of his career as a pro-athlete. I am speaking of course about the fact that he consciously chose to wear sweat pants to a night club.
In hindsight, it was the second biggest mistake of his life; the first being that he shot himself in the leg to distract people from the poor outerwear choices that he made earlier that evening. Though a fashion faux pas of this magnitude would end any normal athlete’s chances at receiving invites to red carpet events, Plax seems to be bullet proof (apparently not in a literal sense) when it comes to falling out of the spotlight.

Kansas City Chiefs Linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested Monday morning in an Indiana casino and charged with a class D felony. According to a report from ProFootballTalk.com, Vrabel is claimed to have taken 8 bottles of beer from a deli at the casino without paying.
Maybe Vrabel was just trying to get used to a courtroom, since, as a member of the NFL Players Association executive committee, he may be spending a lot of time in front of judges and lawyers this summer (via profootballtalk.com)
Yesterday was March 2nd, and according to the crack research staff at JPQ, it marked the 49th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 individual points in an NBA game. While Wilt was surely prolific both on and off the court, the 100 point game has become a thing of legend throughout the years. Even though the league has seen some great players pass through the gym in the last 49 years, nobody has seriously challenged Wilt’s 100 point game – although Kobe did drop 81 against Toronto back in ’06. In fact, with the size and speed of the players, and advent of the shot clock, one could argue that Wilt’s record may just be unbreakable. That got us to thinking, what are some of the unbreakable individual records of all time in sports, and what are the odds that somebody can actually break through and re-write history. Here now is an exlcusive JQP eyewitness news investigation: Read More »
And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house! And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife! Same as it ever was…same as it ever was…same as it ever was. -Talking Heads
Just a quick one today. Quick as a licorice stick one today. Quick as a mouse click one today. Today, the good folks over at Ed The Sports Fan posted a lamentation entitled When Your Favorite Player Gets Traded. He said stuff like, “There’s nothing worse that can happen to a fan than when that fan’s favorite player…gets traded.” In light of this, and in light of the recent moves that sent Melo to the Knicks and Deron Williams to the Nets, I got to thinking. I got to thinking that so many times in sports, guys have ended up in uniforms they just don’t belong in. Uniforms they just look wrong in. Here are a few that I never got used to: Read More »
What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your mamma. What I’ve got you’ve got to give it to your pappa. Give it away, give it away, give it away, give it away now. -Red Hot Chili Peppers
From Pop Warner to the NFL, football coaches everywhere stress turnover avoidance. Nobody wants to have happen what happeneed to Joe Theismann. Theisman floated the ball in the direction of running back Joe Washington. Unfortunately, he didn’t account for unheralded linebacker Jack Squirek. Squirek returned the ball to the hizzy for a touchdown in Super Bowl XVIII. Nobody wants to have happen what happened to Peyton Manning. Faced with a third and five, Manning targeted his favorite receiver, Reggie Wayne. Unfortunatley, Tracy Porter was targeting Manning. At the 26 yard line, Porter returned it to the hizzy for a game-changing touchdown in Super Bowl XLIV. From Pop Warner to the NFL, football coaches everywhere stress turnover avoidance because nobody wants to have happen what done happened to the Steelers yesterday. Read More »
Here you come again, just when I’ve begun to get myself together. You waltz right in the door, just like you’ve done before, and wrap my heart ’round your little finger. -Dolly Parton
It was third down. The Steelers needed six yards for the first down. Two minutes left to play. Up five. “One more stop,” Darrelle Revis said. “One lousy stop. That’s all we needed.” Nothing doing. Not on Big Ben’s watch. Not this time of year. This time of year, when the air is a little bit crisper. This time of year, when the air is a little bit cooler. This time of year,when the air is crisper and cooler, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are making yet another run at the NFL Championship. The NFL. This is what it’s all about. Ben Roethlisberger is what it’s all about. You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out. You put your right foot in and you shake it all about. You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what it’s all about! Read More »
