It’s Like Rugby, Only Football

Man, quite bizarre. Check out the video passed along to me by esteemed site contributor GP John. It’s apparently of a Princeton/Yale football game from 1903. You would hardly recognize it these days as college football, looks more like rugby than anything else.

Since I mentioned rugby, I dug up this vid on YouTube. It’s flippin’ sweet.

Jason Whitlock Is the Balls

Let me get something out of the way here. In no way do I claim to be a professional writer on this site. I like to use it as a forum to voice my opinions, and to share anything around the internet I find interesting. Additionally, I don’t like to have this site clouded by issues that have taken mainstream media by stranglehold. What I mean is this — Don Imus’ comments, and the Duke Lacrosse scandal are more about ideological, political, and ethical beliefs, than they are about sports, even though the sports media has become consumed by such issues. That’s why I used a video created by someone else to share my thoughts on the Duke players being exonerated.

That’s also why I will do the same with the Imus case — which you may have noted has been noticeably missing from this site. Jason Whitlock writes professionally for the Kansas City Star and AOL Sports. He has captured my feelings on the issue more eloquently and persuasively than I possibly could have. That’s why I will link to his column, and show you a video interview of his thoughts, both courtesy the awesomeness that is The Big Lead.

Using the words Don Imus used is completely inappropriate. But the problem is, it’s not just Imus. Using those terms in any context is purely wrong. I don’t care if it’s rap music, I don’t care if it’s in a comedy sketch, any time those words are used, it perpetuates more negative thought. That’s what needs to be attacked, not Imus.

Duke Lacrosse Players Are Free

This is all you need to know to understand my thoughts on the whole case. Only this is much more tame than what I have to offer.

Better Athlete: Adrian Wilson or Joey Gathright?

Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson showed off his incredible athleticism by jumping over a 66-inch high pole. Wilson made the Pro Bowl for his performance in the 2006 season, and if his stats that year didn’t impress you, that video surely will.

Now, the question is, who’s the better athlete? Wilson, or MLB player Joey Gathright:

Giants Fans Really Hate Jason Schmidt

Well, at least this one in particular sure does. I originally posted this story at MLB FanHouse where I chose to link to the video, so as not to frighten those with virgin ears. Therefore you have been warned. The following video contains explicit lyrics (and somewhat discomforting content). In other words, it’s NSFW:

This Kid’s Really Good at Batting Stances

When you were younger, didn’t you fashion your swing after your favorite player? Moreover, didn’t you used to be able to impersonate the stances of every player on your team, and many of the best players in the league? Shoot, I used to have Will Clark down perfectly, with the stiff leg and the sleeve roll up, I was money. My buddy Rey used to do a mean Darin Erstad. Mickey Tettleton used to be a favorite amongst my crowd, with his stiff-bodied slow bat raise. Oh, the days.

Well, I’m a long ways away from reproducing, but I can guarantee you my kid will be able to do this, via Matt Watson at MLB FanHouse:

Jessica Simpson Is Hot

But of course you already knew that. Anywhoo, I was watching Dukes of Hazzard last night, and man, she’s enough to keep me hooked to the screen for two hours. This is the best video I can find — probably about the best 45 seconds you’ll spend all day (work safe).

I could watch it over…and over…and over…and over…and over…and over…

You get the point.
