Lee Corso drinks beer with Stone Cold Steve Austin (Video)

ESPN’s College GameDay kicked off the 2014 season with a bang on Saturday morning. We mean that quite literally, as the program featured everyone’s favorite crazy uncle, Lee Corso, drinking beer with Stone Cold Steve Austin and firing fake guns with Kirk Herbstreit.

Stone Cold was the first guest of the year, and the WWE legend did not disappoint. He brought a couple of his trademark barley pops with him and shared one with Cordo while the crew made their picks:

And even though the entire panel picked Florida State to beat Oklahoma State in Saturday night’s game, Corso and Herbie decided to fire off some cap guns in honor of the Cowboys anyway.

Has it been a long spring and summer or what? Life is back to normal.

Stone Cold Steve Austin: I would love to see Jon Jones get his ass kicked

Stone-Cold-Steve-AustinStone Cold Steve Austin is a big fan of the UFC, but he has a serious problem with the current light heavyweight champion. For whatever reason, Stone Cold does not like Jon Jones.

During a lengthy interview with Ariel Helwani on “The MMA Hour,” Stone Cold ripped Jones for being a hypocrite who is “living two lives.”

“I mean, you here a little stuff on the side, about his lifestyle. I mean, his lifestyle is a little bit different than what he preaches,” Austin said, as transcribed by MMA Mania. “But, as a fighter, premiere. And, God, in the light heavyweight division! And (Alexander) Gustafsson really handed him his ass and took him in the deepest water that he’s ever been in. So that’s going to be a hell of a rematch. Anyway, he kind of gets on my nerves because I think he’s living two lives. To a degree, yes (he is a hypocrite).”

Jones was extremely quiet early in his career, but the longer he has retained the championship the more he has been feeling himself. A little over a month ago, Jones hurled some homophobic slurs toward a Gustafsson fan and claimed he was hacked. He also talked trash about Chuck Liddell and Phil Davis on social media a couple of weeks later.

“Yeah, (he annoys me), but in a good way,” Stone Cold continued. “I would love to see him get his ass kicked, because it’s going to take a hell of a man to be able to do that. I come from pro wrestling, I’m not a judge; but I think he (Gustafsson) did enough last time to get that victory.

“But, what that match proved to me about Jon Jones was that when he’s in deep waters, he had the heart of a champion. So, when I say some things about Jon Jones irritate me, I respect who and what he is inside that Octagon, make no mistake about that.”

In wrestling terms, it sounds like Stone Cold thinks of Jones as the perfect heel. Jones has held the light heavyweight title for more than three years and defended it seven times, so he has earned the right to be cocky. We’ll see if he can hang onto that privilege after a rematch against Gustafsson at the end of September.

Stone Cold Steve Austin spoke out in favor of gay marriage (Audio)

Stone-Cold-Steve-AustinStone Cold Steve Austin was born in Texas, and the beer-guzzling bad ass has always been proud of it. As most of you know, Texas is not one of the 17 US states where gay marriage is legal. Apparently Stone Cold has formed his own opinions on same-sex marriage, because the WWE star has no issue with it.

Austin spoke out in defense of gay marriage on his podcast months ago, and his comments are just now making the rounds. He made them in typical Stone Cold fashion, with plenty of four-letter words mixed in. Deadspin transcribed the remarks for us:

“I don’t give a s— if two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is, I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the goddamn world, that wants to be married, and if it’s same-sex, more power to ‘em,” he said.

Stone Cold also spoke about how he believes religion is hypocritical when it comes to same-sex marriage.

“What also chaps my ass, some of these churches, have the high horse that they get on and say ‘we as a church do not believe in that.’ Which one of these motherf—ers talked to God, and God said that same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?” he asked. “OK, so two cats can’t get married if they want to get married, but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest five kids, then go to f—ing prison, and accept God and He’s going to let him into heaven? After the fact that he did all that shit? See that’s all horses— to me, that don’t jive with me.”

We all know the stereoptypes surrounding gay people and how they can make like incredibly difficult for athletes. Wrestling is as “manly” a sport as there is. An endorsement from someone like Stone Cold can only help the equal rights movement.

Stone Cold Steve Austin offers DeSean Jackson huge safe after burglary

desean-jacksonPhiladelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson had his South Philadelphia home burglarized last week while he was in Miami. The thieves reportedly made off with more than $250,000 in cash, $125,000 in jewelry and two handguns. Jackson has since offered a $50,000 reward to anyone who has information that might help solve the crime.

While the offer of $50,000 still stands, WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin has presented Jackson with an offer of his own. During the burglarly, one of DeSean’s safes was stolen and two were broken into. Stone Cold is confident that won’t happen with a Fort Knox safe.

Stone Cold endorses Fort Knox, and he apparently believes the thieves would not have been so successful at Jackson’s house if he had one their state-of-the-art safes. If I were Jackson, I’d just ask Austin to guard my door and give any intruders a Stone Cold Stunner. That would probably be more effective.
