‘South Park’ gets in on Redskins name debate with commercial (Video)

South-Park-RedskinsThose of you who watched Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins may have seen a funny one-minute “South Park” commercial air during the fourth quarter. The ad spot, which promoted the show’s upcoming 18th season, poked fun at the Redskins name debate.

In typical “South Park” fashion, the geniuses behind the commercial focused on the fact that the Redskins are in danger of losing their trademark. Cartman started a company using the Redskins name and logo, which offended Daniel Snyder and company. Cartman’s argument was that he started the company because he has “total respect” for Snyder and his people.

You get the point. The commercial was a home run, and the fact that it ran during the Eagles-Redskins game was hilarious.

High school WR Apollos Hester will blow your mind with enthusiastic interview (Video)

Apollos Hester is a high school wide receiver from Texas, and the kid might just have a future as a motivational speaker.

After Hester’s East View Patriots beat Vandegrift 42-41 on Friday, he was interviewed by TWC News Austin Lauren Mickler. And that’s when he showed his incredible passion, enthusiasm and optimism. This interview was fantastic.

Bonus points for the hi-top fade. I love this guy.

I may even make this the wallpaper on my cell phone.

DeSean Jackson mocks Eagles on TD celebration (Video)

DeSean Jackson mocksDeSean Jackson scored a big game-tying touchdown for the Washington Redskins against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and he celebrated by mocking his former team.

Jackson caught a bomb around the 25 or so, then ran backwards into the end zone. And what did he do when he got into the promised land? He flapped his arms to mock the “fly Eagles fly.”

Jackson’s touchdown went for 81 yards and gave him 5 catches for 117 yards in just three quarters. Not a bad day against his former team.

He also did some shoving with his old squad earlier in the game.

Stephen Tulloch suffers knee injury while celebrating sack (Video)

Stephen-Tulloch-celebration-injuryDetroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch was so excited about sacking Aaron Rodgers on Sunday that he injured himself. After bringing Rodgers down in the first half, Tulloch jumped up and emphatically mocked the Green Bay Packers star’s “Discount Double Check” dance. He immediately fell to the ground and grabbed his knee.

Tulloch walked back to the locker room under his own power but was later seen on the sideline with an ice bag on his knee. He was out of uniform, meaning his day was over.

Tulloch is the same guy who Tebowed after sacking Tim Tebow a few years ago, so we know he likes mocking opposing quarterbacks. Unfortunately, he didn’t get the last laugh this time around. Hopefully the injury is nothing serious. Having to leave the game after that is embarrassing enough.

Corporal saves Aggies mascot Reveille from collision (Video)

Ryan Kreider ReveilleTexas A&M cadet Ryan Kreider had one job and one job only: protect Aggies mascot Reveille on the sidelines. And he did that wonderfully.

The sophomore mascot corporal saw danger heading the pooch’s way during A&M’s game with SMU Saturday after an overthrow towards the end zone led Mustangs wide receiver Der’rick Thompson charging hard towards the dog’s resting place. Using his “football instincts,” the alert Kreider jumped in front of Reveille and blocked Thompson out of the way. Easily the block of the day.

Benjy Bronk of Howard Stern Show crashes Roger Goodell press conference (Video)

Benjy Bronk press conferenceRoger Goodell’s press conference on Friday to address the NFL’s failings when it comes to the personal conduct policy and discipline was predictably boring and monotonous. But there was one exciting part.

Benjy Bronk of the Howard Stern Show interrupted the press conference while the commissioner was taking questions. He was heard yelling out, “Don’t take me into an elevator!”

The Howard Stern Show is well known for pulling pranks and stunts, so this was their latest effort. It was humorous and harmless, unlike this crasher at the Super Bowl.

Dwyane Wade credits David Stern’s dress code for his passion for fashion

Dwyane Wade tango

Dwyade Wade is one of the most flamboyant dressers in the NBA. And for that, we can thank David Stern.

Wade has worn some of the most mind-boggling outfits and accessories you will ever see over the last several years. During a recent interview with Rob Merrill of The Associated Press, D-Wade said the dress code that Stern instituted in 2005 really got him thinking about what to wear off the court.

“It was like, ‘OK, now we got to really dress up and we can’t just throw on a sweat suit,'” Wade explained. “Then it became a competition amongst guys and now you really got into it more and you started to really understand the clothes you put on your body, the materials you’re starting to wear, so then you become even more of a fan of it.

“Obviously sometimes we push the envelope, and I think it’s because we’re athletes. We’re not looked at as guys who should wear certain things. Being flamboyant is being OK.”

The “competition” Wade referred to must involve him and guys like Russell Westbrook. We have no idea who you could call the “winner” between those two guys. One day Wade is wearing hot pink pants on his way to a game and the next Westbrook is blowing us away with some leather overalls. It’s all thanks to Stern and his disdain for baggy pants.
