Pre-Season Is Here! So…Where’s Your “D”?

For some teams, preseason is well underway. But for New Orleans Saints fans, it officially starts tonight when the home team takes on the Kansas City Chiefs. Head Coach Sean Payton is back! Wide receiver Joe Morgan is essentially dead. But what we're most excited about is what this season will bring for the beleaguered defense. There's a new coach at the helm of the crappiest defense in NFL history. And although the bar is pretty low for new leader Rob Ryan, so is the margin of error. In honor of this exciting new season, the Chicks want to help you celebrate the return to football...and since it's us, the celebration includes booze! We're giving away two $25 gift cards to Dave … [Read more...]

The Pro Bowl is Changing…Again

They say if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But for the NFL if it is broke, keep fixing it...over..and over...and over again. The Pro Bowl is once again getting tweaked in an effort to make at least one NFL fan even casually give a damn. From here on out, you can say goodbye to the traditional system of a certain number of players from each conference getting selected to go. Starting this season, the players will be selected via a draft. So it's sort of like fantasy football, without the fantasy. Deep. And that's not all that's changing, according to the NFL Player's Association: Players will be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft, in which two leading vote getters will … [Read more...]

NFL Bag Ban: Created by a D-Bag?

Remember that time a woman snuck a hand grenade hidden inside her Kate Spade purse into an NFL game? Or the time that mom managed to get a machete into a stadium by hiding it in her toddler's diaper bag? Oh wait a minute, those things never happened. Which begs the question: why is the NFL banning women from bringing their purses to games? This ridiculously unnecessary rule change is supposed to be under the guise of "safety" and "line efficiency". To be fair, the rule also applies to backpacks, coolers, computer bags and briefcases. (But who the hell brings a briefcase to a football game??) The NFL insists that if it doesn't have to do bag checks, the line will move faster and … [Read more...]

NFaiL: Vince is Broke and Chad is Sorry

Oh Vinny Young. It seems like just a few years ago you were losing your mind as quarterback of the Tennessee Titans. Now, you're broke, jobless and apparently a future Weight Watchers spokesperson due to a Cheesecake Factory addiction. They grow up so fast! We learned this week that not only did Vince Young squander away $26 million over his six year career, but we also heard rumors about just what he may have wasted his money on. Apparently Vince just loves him some Louisiana Chicken Pasta from Chessecake Factory (and who among us doesn't?) because he reportedly dropped about $5k a week at the restaurant during his rookie season. That's according to waiters who called into a … [Read more...]

The Super Bowl Is More Important Than…

...apparently a whole mess of stuff, according to the average American. And I thought it was just me and my fellow chicks who suffered from an odd, unhealthy obsession with the game. But nope, it turns out the rest of you are a bunch of weirdos, too! Hooray!! According to a survey run by (I know, I know...but just hear me out), 20% of people said they would miss a loved one's funeral if their favorite team was in the game. (Say what?!!!) 21% would miss an important work responsibility and 20 percent would miss the wedding of a close friend. (If someone cares so little about the Super Bowl that they would plan their wedding on game day, are they really worth being … [Read more...]
