Interesting Stories of the Offseason

16 July, 2008 (16:52) | Indianapolis Colts, NFL, New England Patriots, Random Things | By: Grafton

Training camp is approaching, which means the NFL regular season will be here before we know it, fully prepared to dominate our Sundays through the end of January. It’s inescapable. However, we manage to build up an itch for a little gridiron news over the summer, so here’s a little bit of what you might have missed:

Perhaps RB Travis Henry isn’t the magnanimous personality we thought he was. He’s fathered 9 kids by 17 different women, but was able to get out of a positive marijuana test last year by claiming it was courtesy of second hand smoke. I don’t run drug tests, but he must’ve been hanging out with Snoop Dogg a lot prior to that test. Now this happens. Good work, Travis.

Apparently, Clay Travis tells us, throwing the phrase “no homo” on the end of ambiguously gay sentences is all the rage in NFL locker rooms. I can use the phrase “all the rage” without the 90s Police coming after me because friends of mine from areas that aren’t exactly centers for pop culture tell me the phrase “no homo” has been used since around the same time.

The New England Patriots might have the craziest NFL fan out there. This of course comes after the same man gained notoriety for getting the Patriots helmet logo tattooed on either side of his head. The interesting thing for me is that the space on his body is “starting at only $200 per square inch.” If he’s a good business man those are the spots that receive the least amount of…shall we say exposure. I’d be very interested in finding out what someone else wants to pay $200 per square inch for to have this man tattoo it on his ass, or worse. *shudders*

Briefly, on a more depressing note, Patriots lineman Nick Kaczur was caught buying OxyContin illegally , allegedly at a clip of $3,900 for 100 pills every few days. I don’t care if they’re Flintstones Chewables, if you’re taking 100 pills of anything every few days you’ve got problems.

Are the Pats the best team – EVER????

28 October, 2007 (20:19) | Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Washington Redskins | By: Phil Ayres

I usually laugh when people say things like this… but, after this week, we just have to ask… are the Pats the best team in history?  After the 52-7 win over the ‘Skins and the dismantling of the Dolphins, it just seems to me that these guys are that much better than everyone else…. and, yes, I know what you are saying… it is the Dolphins and the Redskins… but, seriously, you have to wonder.

However, they will have their one true test of the season next week against the Colts.  If they get past these guys, well, they are are going all the way… all the way to the AFC Championship – where the Pats will, yet again, meet the Colts.  Who knows what will happen at that point in the season.  Last year, I would have given the Pats the nod in that game – given the Colts’ tendency to blow such games in the past… but, as the reigning champion … who knows how that game will go down?  I just can’t wait to see how this drama will play out, this season.

I am sick and tired of looking at Peyton

16 September, 2007 (11:08) | Indianapolis Colts | By: Phil Ayres

For goodness sakes, as I sit here watching games, today, I swear that Peyton is in every other commercial.  Am I the only one who is tired of looking at him?

Is he the only athlete worthy of being in commercials?

I can’t believe the Bears pulled it off

22 January, 2007 (06:25) | Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts | By: Phil Ayres

Well, they limped through the latter part of the season… getting a win wherever and however they could (Thank God for the defense, right?). And, they were led by a sub-par QB. And, they are going to the Super Bowl. Congratulations.

However, I am not a Bears fan. I don’t know… there is something about being planted in the city of a team where everyone is completely obsessed with tha team (like they are here in Chicago abou the Bears). OK, I am a native Nashville guy. Not a Chicago guy. So, I am kinda’ (because of the people around me) getting where I hate the Bears. These people have a shitty-ass QB, and they think they are incredible. I experienced the same thing when I lived in Jacksonville. I became the biggest Brunell hater on the block. And, I have mocked Fred Taylor and his injuries and Jimmy Smith and his cocaine use many times over.

Anyway, I am very glad (as a Vols fan) to see Peyton go to the Super Bowl. I believe that he will stomp the shit out of the Bears. Well, maybe not. It will be a good, close game. Peyton will prevail 27-21, and he will be named MVP. And, he will be going to Disneyworld. Then, he will officially be on every single commercial on television. Got to admit. Peyton’s over-exposure is completely annoying. I am tired of constantly seeing him on TV.
