Oscar contenders as NFL playoff teams

Posted by · 9:56 am · January 6th, 2011

I just love this.  I can’t stand baseball, so I missed Movieline’s cute little item drawing parallels between MLB playoff teams and the year’s Oscar contending films back in October.  But you know I’m a pigskin fan, so the latest stab caught my eye. I guess you could go the contenders-as-food route if you want […]

Back to Monday for Oscar?

Posted by · 8:32 am · August 26th, 2010

Some of our younger readers may think of the Academy Awards as a weekend-capping tradition, having taken place on a Sunday for the last 12 years running. However, seasoned Oscar-watchers will remember the days when, rather than rounding out the week, the ceremony kicked it off, falling on Monday so as not to interfere with […]

Predictions of a different stripe

Posted by · 4:24 pm · August 13th, 2010

Alright, it’s Friday night, the news day is winding down, McNabb is about to take the field for the first time in crimson and gold and you all know I’m a pigskin fanatic (as are plenty of you), so I figured it was worth it to offer up this.  You?

David Fincher’s new NFL Nike spot featuring Adrian Peterson

Posted by · 10:46 am · September 15th, 2009

Not as good as Michael Man’s “Leave Nothing” spot from two years ago, or Fincher’s own spot from last year, but I always look forward to these:

R.I.P. Steve “Air” McNair

Posted by · 2:10 pm · July 4th, 2009

Those who read regularly know I’m a big football fan, so I felt it necessary to point to the news, which fellow fans will surely have discovered by now or soon, that former NFL quarterback Steve McNair (Houston Oilers, Tennessee Titans, Baltimore Ravens) has been killed in Nashville. He was 36 years old. This is […]

I vote Polamalu

Just a little Trojan support.  But Fitzgerald or Roethlisberger would be cool too.  Peterson will come, in time.  Or at least he better. Back to movies…

‘The Cooley Zone’

Posted by · 10:47 am · April 15th, 2009

Those who’ve followed the site long enough are well aware that I’m a football guy.  The kind that watches the NFL network throughout the off-season to find out what the “10 Greatest Quaterback Controversies of All Time” might be, or to get 100% filled in on pre-draft news and notes.  It’s in my blood. Anyway, […]

Premiering tonight: ‘Dhani Tackles the Globe’

Posted by · 12:58 pm · March 16th, 2009

So I was watching “NFL Total Access” the other night (my fellow pigskin fans know the pre-draft excitement of this time of year), and Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones was guest hosting/promoting his new Travel Channel show “Dhani Tackles the Globe.” I didn’t think much of it at first.  A football player with his own […]

Go Cards?

Posted by · 3:09 pm · February 1st, 2009

The other season comes to a close today, and I don’t know.  The Steelers are one of my favorite teams but I love the Cardinals’ story this year, so, that’s where I’m rooting.  I was going to put some money down on it but the payoff isn’t enough to reward the risk I was prepared […]

Day of rest…a few requests of the football gods

Posted by · 5:24 am · December 28th, 2008

Obviously, my guys are out of the mix.  Thank you very much Atlanta.  But for those who’ve followed my quasi-coverage of the NFL season, I have a few hopes to toss out there for the final day of the regular season: 1) Shine down on Rod Marinelli.  It would be two birds with one stone […]
