We’ve all made stupid bets.
Usually it’s because of that sonofabitch called pride, which needles you in your side just as soon as you’re forced to defend your home turf. A wise man once told me never to bet with your heart unless it’s a lead-pipe cinch.
I don’t think anyone can argue that Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is one of the best defensive players in the league.
He’s one of the NFL’s top pass rushers, he can completely disrupt opposing offenses and he has to be game planned for. That being said, he’s not the greatest run-stuffing linebacker, even on his own team.
Someone brought Giovanni Bartocci’s story to my attention last week. It disappeared into the ether until I was digging through my email last night and I laughed to myself, “Oh yeah, that crazy bastard.” Bartocci is a Green Bay Packers fan. He’s also one of those guys. There’s something not quite right about him, but […]
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews might as well be a rock star. He has the hair, he’s a badass and now he’s presenting a Grammy Award on Sunday.
Matthews joins a list of presenters that includes Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Eva Longoria, among others.
You know all that Super Bowl championship gear they make before the game for the losing team?
It all gets shipped to some third-world country.
While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were… well, not wearing anything but their uniforms.
As a salute to your world champion Green Bay Packers, the Empire State Building was lit up in the team’s green and gold Monday night. Over the weekend, the building was lit in the colors of both the Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, with the north and south sides in green and gold and the east […]
It’s taken a little longer than normal to return to reality. The feeling that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl XLV champions is still a bit surreal. Sunday night we celebrated. In my case, a little too long. Yesterday’s hangover was brutal. It was also the best hangover I’ve ever had. Hell, I might […]
In a fitting end to a season marked by adversity, the Green Bay Packers overcame another spate of injuries to key players and outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV and bring the Lombardi trophy home. It was an amazing game from the start. The Packers dominated the first half, scoring two […]
Confidence instills confidence. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is supremely confident about this game and I suspect his team is too. After Friday’s practice, McCarthy had this to say. “We’ve had an opportunity to go over every situation twice for our game plan, so we’re ready to go. The one thing you want to […]
Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer that you haven’t already heard. “Pittsburgh has more experience, blah, blah, blah. Aaron Rodgers is […]
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday. Pouncey injured his ankle in the AFC Championship game and although he’s been in a walking boot most of the week, he insisted he had a 75 percent chance of playing Sunday. He didn’t practice on Friday, which […]
Actually, I take that back. Calling this gay is an insult to my homosexual friends. This is something else entirely. It’s lame. It’s loserish. It’s a sign this guy is never getting laid for the rest of his life, unless he runs into a 300-pound hillbilly with five teeth from West Virginia. They like the […]
If you recall, last Friday and Saturday we helped with a Super Bowl ticket giveaway by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau. The objective of the contest for participants was to find a mystery man roaming the streets of Green Bay. The winner received two tickets to see the Green Bay Packers face the Pittsburgh […]
Here’s another video animation from those crazy bastards at Next Media Animation. This time, they’re apparently trying to describe the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and the Super Bowl to a nation that cares little about it. They’ve spiced things up by including a naked Ben Roethlisberger, who not only gets caged and Tasered, but […]
Does anyone else feel like the first-time Super Bowl jitters do not apply to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers? There’s all kinds of evidence to suggest the Super Bowl-experienced signal caller has an advantage over a guy making his first appearance in the game, but Rodgers has always been unflappable, whether it be dealing […]
In case you haven’t heard, the Green Bay Packers are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday. As such, I thought it would be a good idea to trade a little info on our respective teams with Chris at Nice Pick, Cowher, one of the best Steelers blogs we’ve seen. And yes, I chose seven questions […]
The names of several Green Bay Packers defensive coaches have been flying around as candidates for the various defensive coordinator openings around the league, but it’s now looking less likely the Packers staff will be purged. On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles, one of the four teams with an opening, hired Juan Castillo, their own offensive […]
Maybe it’s his stupid, fat face. Maybe it’s his plodding style of play. Maybe it’s because he’s a rapist. Whatever it is, no one like Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That is, at least according to a poll set to be published in the Hollywood Reporter. The poll, conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, showed Roesthlisberger […]
Hey, they’ve been in the Super Bowl a few times in recent years, so maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers don’t need to worry about the usual distractions. Maybe they have their own way of preparing. I’m sure if quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t engaged, he’d be out boozing and trying to rape hook up with some local […]
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award by two votes over Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, but Polamalu says he doesn’t deserve the award. After he won the award, Polamalu turned to Twitter with these words. Thanks for the congrats. @jharrison9292 @ClayMatthews52 Ed Reed Julius Peppers way […]
