It is that time of year, when the graduating football players leave and the new ones join the team. You can say it is the Circle of Life, so it would make sense that University of Michigan’s Wolverine would use it as a ritual to welcome the newbies. Or just have some fun!
Here’s the video that Quarterback John O’Korn shared of them lifting the little guy who will someday grow to be their King. Watching it will make you as happy as singing Hakuna Matata.
It is that time of year, when I find out what channel ESPN is on on my cable system. That’s because today is the annual Fourth of July Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest and it is what being American is all about. Each year 20 people try to down as many hot dogs as they can in 10 minutes and keep them down.
From 2007-2014, Joey Chestnut held that title and continued to break his own records. Then last year, Matt Stonie, who lives in the same town as him, beat him.
This year both men were back to battle it out and there could only be one winner. I guess last year’s loss really lit a fire in Chestnut’s belly because Stonie never stood a chance. Not only did Chestnut destroy his opponent by 17 wieners, he also beat his own record. He gobbled down 70 dogs in 10 minutes and I will not eat another one until July 3rd.
I don’t know how they do it. I can’t eat 70 of anything in 10 minutes and they do it like it is nothing. Thankfully these competitive eaters know how to do it because I love watching them every year.
But then again, I am still hoping for another contestant to throw up on live TV again. That was an awesome moment in television history.
I think that next year they should add another part to the challenge. After the 10 minutes are up, all the contestants need to ride the Cyclone at Coney Island. Whoever ate the most hot dogs and kept them down, is the winner. So it is a two part contest that will be both exciting and disgusting at the same time. Because you know as soon as one person loses his hot dogs, the rest will follow. How glorious would that be?
Some of the Anaheim Angels thought it would be fun to play a prank on their teammate Garrett Richards, so they invited him out to dinner. Then as they were waiting to be seated, a woman came up to them and asked them for advice on how to break up with her boyfriend. After they told her what to do, they went their separate ways.
After they were seated, a man pitched an idea to them and the pitcher caught it. He asked the baseball player to help him to propose to his girlfriend by bringing over a piece of a cake with the ring on a plate. When it was time for him to go up to the mound, he was surprised to find out that the girl the man was proposing to was the same one who wants to dump her boyfriend. At that moment Richards knew the guy was going to strike out, but what could he do? He just stood their as clueless as the men on home plate waiting for one of his pitches. That is until his friends came in to tell it was all a joke. I can’t wait to see how he gets revenge!
Yesterday on The Late Late Show, James Corden asked the Denver Broncos’ CJ Anderson, Chris Harris Jr. and Brandon Marshall to play Nuzzle Whaaa?. The game is simple, the players are blindfolded as they rub their faces along a something unknown to guess what it is. The first item was a football helmet, the second was a Denver Omelet and the final one was 12′ Albino Python.
As soon as Harris Jr touched his face down on to the snake, he jumped back the length of the reptile. While the other two players were hesitant to touch it, the CBS late night host kept rubbing his lips all over it. That is until he found what it was, then he was in a state of shock. Which I can’t blame him because I would’ve done the same.
James Corden is new to America, so he is trying to make friends and learn about our version of the game football. What better way to do that than to have a sleepover with Dallas Cowboy’s Tony Romo? So that is exactly what the two men did. The quarterback and the CBS Late Late Show host played games, told scary stories and so much more. It was so much fun, I wish I was invited. Mostly because I so would’ve dipped Corden’s hand in warm water. That and getting the chance to sleep next to Romo? What more can you ask for?
Romo was so naturally funny during this touchdown of a bit that I hope he considers a career in acting when he retires from his day job.
Kobe Bryant announced today that he will end his 20 year old basketball career with The Lakers at the end of the season. The 17 time NBA All-Star’s news is shocking but not surprising because he has been hinting about this and he has been plagued by injuries over the last few years.
Even though, he will not be dribbling a ball professionally anymore, I am sure he will still be heavily involved with the game after his retirement. I bet you he will become an announcer just like Shaq and so many others.
How do you feel about his retirement?

Ohio State University’s Marching Band is the best one in the country, if not the world, and this Saturday they paid tribute to one of the greatest movie franchises of all the time. They marched to the beat of Back to the Future. Not only that, they lined up to generate some of the most iconic moments from the movie. They assembled to create the DeLorean, Marty McFly playing the guitar and also escaping on skateboard with the help of a pickup, and of course the clock tower with just their bodies.
There is something about watching them that just puts a huge smile on my face. How can you not watch their hard work turn into a human masterpiece and not feel good. It’s truly is outstanding what they do. So sit back and watch the almost 10 minute performance, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

NFL Network’s Albert Breer was interviewing Cincinnati Bengals’ Adam Jones in the locker room right after the game and the players were showering and/or changing clothes behind them. Well the cameraperson wasn’t zoomed in close enough to the reporter and the football player and you got to see a lot of naked tight ends! Who knew the post game coverage was so exciting? I know it got me excited.
Back when I was in college, I was a reporter for our radio station. I went to a spring training baseball game and got to interview the players in the locker room. As much as I tried to look up, it was very hard. Not them! Well, there was this one player, butt (pun intended) I digress. Seriously though, it is one thing to enjoy it when you watch it on TV, and another not to when you are there up close and personal. And boy were they personal with this sweet little innocent college girl!
On Saturday night, the Kansas State marching band was honoring Space with a Star Trek and Star Wars themed halftime show. Some of the band members made a shape like the school mascot and the others resembled the Starship Enterprise. Only problem is some people didn’t see the spaceship, they saw a penis and balls. Then they saw that shape enter the Jayhawk’s mouth. Which got them thinking of something they want when the game is over.
I see phallic things in the most innocent of circumstances, but it took me a while to see it here. Granted, I also didn’t see the Starship Enterprise at first either, but that is neither here not there. Did you see it before or after you knew what people claimed they thought were seeing?
Frank Tracz, Director of the K-State Marching Band, released this statement about it, “The chart below represents the drill from tonight’s show. There was absolutely no intent to display anything other than the Enterprise and the Jayhawk in battle. If I am guilty of anything it would be the inability to teach the drill in a manner that these young people could have succeeded. I do apologize for the misinterpretation and I assure you that I meant absolutely no disrespect or malice toward the University of Kansas.”
When you think of Deion Sanders, you think of the Football Hall of Famer who also played baseball. Well, tomorrow be prepared to see a different side of him when he appears on Spike’s Lip Sync Battle. The athlete puts on a blonde wig, short white wedding dress and mouths the words to Madonna’s song Like a Virgin. It’s a shiny and new side to him, and I think it scores a touchdown and a home run.
Now we know why Justin Bieber is singing Fergie’s Big Girls Don’t Cry on the show because he has to remind himself not to cry when he loses tomorrow night to Sanders.
