Steven Jackson is headed to Brazil and needs some condoms

Rams running back Steven Jackson has been tweeting about heading to South America this week, and it looks like he’s planning on giving some of the ladies in the country a taste of the USA.

As Peter Burns pointed out, Jackson sent the following tweet Tuesday night about needing condoms:

Burns figures Jackson was trying to send a text message or direct message and sent the tweet by accident. We agree. It didn’t take long for Jackson to delete the tweet, but thanks to Peter, it’s hitting the internet.

Action Jackson may be embarrassed, but we’re proud he’s at least practicing safe sex unlike some other notable football players.

Thanks to John Hashem for grabbing the tweet

Delonte West Thinks Nike Should Make Condoms, Have Athletes Market Them

Jokes about Nike’s slogan are nothing new. Anyone who is above the age of 12 that hasn’t heard an off-color comment that’s related to “Just Do It” must be living in an extremely remote area of the country.  Sex jokes are associated with Nike’s tag line all the time, and I’m sure the people at Nike welcome the added publicity and marketing.  What I’m not sure of, however, is if Nike would go for Delonte West’s brilliant idea for them to start making condoms and have athletes market them.

While you might expect someone like Chad Ochocinco to endorse a product like this, he’d  probably be hesitant as it would compete with a product of his own.  Nike certainly won’t be able to pitch Manny Pacquiao on the idea, either.  Aside from that I think Delonte is onto something here.  Manufacturing condoms wouldn’t hurt Nike’s image at all, and the slogan is already built in which is a huge bonus.  Sounds like a home run idea if you ask me.

Tarvaris Jackson Receives Condoms for Protection After Being Sacked 5 Times

Four quarterbacks were sacked a league-high five times during week one of the NFL season. Tarvaris Jackson at least has something (other than a few bruises) to show for it.

The Seahawks QB says he received a package of condoms in the name of extra protection. NuVo condoms is responsible for the promotional campaign and they reportedly plan to continue the practice throughout the season.

It’s a clever marketing idea and it’s something they’ve done before. They sent Jim Thome 600 Jimmy hats when he hit his 600th home run.

Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, and Kyle Orton also were sacked five times but there’s no word if they received the packages. In Jay’s case we know he won’t be using them. In Kyle’s case, judging by his neckbeard, he seems like more of a raw-dogger than anything else.

Vancouver Olympics Receive Emergency Supply of Condoms

The amount of sexual intercourse that goes on in the Olympic Village every two years is legendary. In fact, they even encourage it by providing 100,000 condoms for free. If that’s not enough, the 2012 Olympics in London have a sexual logo. We touched on the reason two years ago by saying, “The Olympic Village is like a summer sleep-away camp but worse — you’re sticking a bunch of sexually deprived world-class athletes all in closed quarters, with nothing but raging, competitive hormones pumping through their veins.” That’s why it’s no surprise to read that they almost ran out of condoms in Vancouver this week. From the National Post via Sports by Brooks:

Health officials in Vancouver have already provided 100,000 free condoms to the roughly 7,000 ahtletes and officials at the Games. That’s about 14 condoms per person. But as of Wednesday, those supplies started running dangerously low.

So naturally, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS research decided to step and make sure there were no hitches in Olympic action.

Three boxes of about 8,500 condoms were sent in as relief. Any wonder why Lindsey Vonn’s husband serves as her manager? Dude’s no dummy. It’s just a shame that the Winter Games don’t have as many good looking girls as the Summer Games in Beijing. The same can probably be said for the men.
