Thanks to Gillette, I had the pleasure of speaking with Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie Tight End OJ Howard and his very proud father Kareem. Gillette had Kareem mic’d up for his son’s rookie debut, and then let OJ watch the game through his father’s eyes in the above video. Read the rest of this entry »
Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Anthony “Spice” Adams teams up with Kelloggs this week to surprise Chicago and Green Bay fans with a “sunny” start to their day, complete with a mobile game day breakfast cart and milk dispensing keg as fans set up their tailgates.

So if you plan on heading out to the game on Sunday, make sure you get there early and keep an eye out for the Kellogg’s Raisin Bran cart and Spice Adams.

Week four in the NFL season is underway with only two games that have a touchdown or higher spread. There should be some high scoring affairs like the Colts and Jaguars in London (9:30 AM ET) and the Saints in San Diego taking on the Chargers. If you like defense (or terrible offense) the Seahawks travel to NY (actually NJ) to take on the Jets and the Titans will be in Houston to take on a JJ Watt-less Texans. Read the rest of this entry »

The New York Jets have been the butt of many jokes for almost half a century. They have not won a Super Bowl since Joe Namath famously guaranteed a win in 1968. At this moment, Geno Smith is penciled in as their starting quarterback as they have yet to sign free agent QB (and last year’s starter) Ryan Fitzpatrick. A quick look at the Super Bowl odds shows the Jets a 40 to 1 longshot to win Super Bowl LI. Could they defy the odds and win it all? Read the rest of this entry »
While Patriots QB Tom Brady was able to avoid a suspension last season (making him a scoop in Fanstasy Football leagues in the process), New England wasn’t so lucky this year as “Deflategate” came back to haunt them. Brady will miss the first four weeks of the 2016-2017 NFL season, but Vegas doesn’t seem to mind. NFL odds makers still favor the New England Patriots over all other teams as they sit at a 15 to 2 favorite to win Super Bowl LI.

Even though the sale of alcohol at college football games sounds like a very bad idea, it is obvious that college students are already too intoxicated. Consuming too much alcohol can result in shootings, stabbings, fights, drunk driving, altercations, injuries, and arrests for public intoxication.

John Burt, a freshman wide receiver at the University of Texas doesn’t know why five current or former FBS receivers or defensive backs decided to run the 110-meter hurdles at the NCAA Division I men’s track and field championships this week. While their decision to participate in the event won’t have an effect on college football betting lines, an injury could ruin their seasons.
According to Burt, most college receivers and defensive backs that decide to participate in track and field usually run the 100m dash, so he is surprised they have started running the 110m hurdle, especially since they don’t do a lot of hurdling in football. Read the rest of this entry »
