A Super Bowl Ticket Costs How Much???

As a reward to all you fans who faithfully support your team and spend your hard-earned money on season tickets and paraphernalia, the NFL has finally found a way to repay you for your loyalty, should your squad make it to the big game this season. They're hiking up the price of already ridiculously expensive Super Bowl tickets. Oh you reaaally shouldn't have! According to an article in the Wall St. Journal, the league is fed up with scalpers and third-party ticket websites making enormous profits off of Super Bowl ticket resales. So, instead of finding a way to stick it to the resellers, the league will instead stick it to the little guy. Here's the latest from the WSJ: According … [Read more...]

NFL Wives Club: Kristin Cavallari Debuts Fashion Line

We came to know her as "that beeyatch from Laguna Beach." Then, she evolved into "that beeyatch from The Hills." Following a few stints in bad movies and on bad TV shows, Kristin Cavallari has finally found a role we can get behind: designer of fabulous female football fan apparel. It's a venture that makes sense, given her innate fashion sense and the fact that she's literally married to the game. Cavallari is the wife of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. She recently unveiled her new line, in partnership with Junk Food Clothing, at New York Fashion Week. As for what inspired her to design female fan apparel, she says: "Football is a huge part of my life and fashion is a … [Read more...]

Evolution of the End Zone Dance

Remember back in the day when football players could have fun after they scored a touchdown? I think they called it something like a "touchdown dance"? From T.O.'s pom-pom shake with a cheerleader to Joe Horn's "Can You Hear Me Now" moment, touchdown dances were often times the best part of the game. So leave it to Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake to pay tribute to this relic in football history with a little something they call: "The Evolution of End Zone Dancing". … [Read more...]

1 and Oh How I Hate the Falcons

If someone had told me a week ago that, with under a minute left in the game, the Atlanta Falcons would have 1st and goal with an opportunity to win the game and it would be up to the New Orleans Saints poor, tired, beleaguered defense to stop them, I would have possibly either slapped them in the face for putting such a nightmare in my head or stabbed myself in the eyeballs to avoid watching how it would all unfold. Who could blame me though? These guys couldn't stop a faucet from running last year. Their defense was the worst in NFL history. Rob Ryan might bring them some new swagger, but he's not a miracle worker. Or is he??? What happened in the final seconds of the Saints … [Read more...]

Chick Chow: Roasted Falcon, Gamey But Good For The Soul

Ever go to a fancy-schmancy restaurant but vacillate on what to order? Seems like Sean Payton had the same dilemma recently, but in the end settled on the perfect meal, Roasted Falcon. It's a tender dish, but if the bird is not plucked, boiled, and cooked properly, it can lend a gamey taste. I recently read how our darling boys, Curtis Lofton and Junior Galette, adore plucking them Falcon meat so fear not, the Saints' defense will be ready come Sunday. My prediction for Sunday's game? Saints 34, Falcons 17. Today, I offer you my homemade re-creation of Roasted Falcon, using turkey, but you can also substitute it with duck or chicken as well. Who's going to know the difference--falcons, … [Read more...]
