Dude, I’m So Going to Appalachian St.

With a video and a sales pitch like this one, how can you possibly resist the charm?

EDSBS picked up on this earlier in the week, and SI’s Extra Mustard Hot Clicks had it up a few days ago, but I must thank stellar sports radio personality Jorge Sedano for the hookup. I cannot possibly imagine a video that would make me more inclined to attend the university. I’m so there.

Shaq, Hinting Divorce Long Time Ago?

Tas over at The Basketball Jones, which by the way, broadcasts a must-hear podcast, posted an old video of Shaq making a snide remark to a reporter. Given the recent news of Shaq’s impending divorce, this clip is a hell of a lot more relevant, if not comical. Take a peak:

Mark Mangino Does Not Like His Players Showboating

Thanks to EDSBS and FanHouse, we have some great video from Kansas’ win over Central Michigan this weekend. Check out this punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter by Raimond (yes, there’s an “I” in his name) Pendelton:

That made the score 28-0, with Kansas going on to win it 52-7. I love it when coaches do that crap — no showboating, no penalty flags, none of that garbage. Marvin Lewis should learn from Mangino. That … was brilliant.

Secret to Winning Gold at the Olympics

Many thanks to You Been Blinded for digging up that masterpiece.

Video of Michael Vick’s Apology

I have to say, I was quite moved by Michael Vick’s speech today. He apologized to Goodell, Blank, his teammates, and the fans. I’ll let you judge it for yourself, with much thanks to Awful Announcing for the video.

Really, I think he knocked it out of the park, and it seems like he will be doing some soul searching. I bet he still can’t believe that the dog fighting led him to this much public embarrassment. Again, I completely bought the speech, and really appreciated the fact that it was straight from the heart, seemingly un-rehearsed. And thank goodness it was his speech — not that of a public relations firm.

Being an NFL Official Is Not Safe

This is why you must be on the look out for everything … head on a swivel, head on a swivel, head on a swivel …

Yes, that was from Sunday night’s Steelers/Eagles game. I know they don’t do it full time, but I sure hope the refs get good health benefits.

Chest Bump to The 700 Level for the video.

Darren Dreifort on Stealing Money

Like Buckner and Dent to Red Sox fans, you just don’t bring up the names Dreifort or Chan Ho around Dodger fans. In case you’re not familiar with the name Darren Dreifort, we can thank the jerkoffs at Pop Jocks for reminding us:

For Dodger fans, they probably don’t even realize it was all about one pick. One slot in the draft order was the difference between Alex Rodriguez, and Darren Dreifort. Unfortunately … well, you know what happened. And the rest, as they say, is history.
