The REAL Peyton Manning - It’s Superbowl Time

The Real Peyton Manning - Herald & Review-Kelly J. Huff

Peyton Manning and his rocket laser arm were in Hawaii this weekend for the NFL Pro Bowl. But the newest Manning, was also working at Staples in Forsyth, IL. And this newer Manning is also named Peyton. This diehard Chicago Bears fan declared he would legally change his name if the Chicago Bears didn’t win the Superbowl. We all know what happened in the game, and now formerly named Scott Wiese is honoring his alcohol made bet that he would change his name. This first caught our eye on The Obscure Store blog, which provided a link to downstate Illinois newspaper The Pantagraph. Make sure to read the comments in both, they are priceless.

Pitchers and Catchers Report- The Countdown

Baseball kids - cheering and jeering by HortonI was reminded today by UniWatch, a great blog if you haven’t read it, that pitchers and catchers report soon. With the Superbowl less than a week old, I couldn’t believe it. It’s freezing out.

According to The New Editor, expect to see pitchers and catchers reporting on February 15th. Is it me or is that early?

Chris Harris make a supersize promise for the Superbowl - It’s Superbowl Time

Chris HarrisRhymes with Right, had a great writeup on Chicago Bears safety Chris Harris. Apparently Harris promised a local access reporter tickets to the Superbowl months ago in a live interview. Now the reporter is using his footage to try to get that ticket. Ticket prices range from $3,000 - $10,000 on second chance sites like StubHub.

Just in Case You Need Some Help…

nfl-logo.jpgIn this year of no heavy favorites to even make it to SuperBowl XLI, let alone win it - it could be hard to figure out who to root for (unless you are maybe from San Diego, which the way I see it, is the only strong favorite of the 12 teams to make the SuperBowl). 

Anyway, point is, the NFL understands this is a tough year for the average fan to pick a bandwagon - so they have decided to help you out!  Kind of silly, but actually pretty goofy and fun for the No Fun League.

 

TonyHomo.com - Yes, you read that right.

Chalkboard Football by Brian SHere’s the reason you read The Extra Point, at the end of the year you get all sorts of great lists, and this year is no exception.  Over at ValleyWag, they had a post about 13 great blogs you are not reading

Well we have selected the one blog you should be reading and aren’t.  TonyHomo.com.

Remember twice-lost-his-job-to-a-better-backup Drew Bledsoe?  Yes that Drew Bledsoe who first due to injury lost to already-in-the-hall-of-fame Tom “Superbowl” Brady, and now to been-sitting-on-the-sidelines-for-years Tony “Don’t-call-me-rookie” Romo. 

Well good ol’ Drew decided to let the fans hear his side of the story.  Drew is an articulate writer and passionate about his topic.  His blog, starting with the title, pulls no punches

Gosh I’m getting so angry just thinking about all this bad publicity. I better go relax and play some Madden ‘07 on the new PS3. My ‘96 Patriots team vs. Homo’s Cowboys. It’s gonna be a bloodbath. And not just because I play as Homo and run backwards for safeties on every play, but because teams rely on veteran leadership and experience to win the big game and Homo has none. (Though the -742 rushing yards doesn’t help!)

Another classic post is his open letter to Byron Leftwich after gettting benched for David Garrad, an excerpt talking about when they both played the Houston Texans:

Actually, let me just pull up some stats from both of our games… I was 17-28, 168 yards passing, two scores and no picks. Solid outing. Then again, when am I not? You were 14-28 for 125 yards and no scores. Hm. That’s actually pretty embarrassing, dude.

After the loss to the Eagles I am sure Drew has a great post coming up.

Tom Brady - don’t sue us….

shocked picture

Tom Brady, apparently is not happy enough being the NFL superstar, 3 time Superbowl champ, and basically the lock for Hall of Fame QB even if he quit the NFL today.  He is now suing Yahoo! for their use of his likeness in some Fantasy Football ads.  Oh Yahoo, will you ever learn.
