Pardew Me, I Don’t Think You Want to Say That

Former Charlton Athletic manager Alan Pardew was on the BBC’s Match of the Day show on Sunday and sparked some controversy when he said that Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien “absolutely rapes” Manchester City player Ched Evans with a slide-tackle.

He’s timed it perfectly” Pardew said, “He’s a strong boy, he absolutely rapes him” he added.

Always ones for proper decorum, the BBC released a statement shortly after the incident. “Alan Pardew apologies unconditionally for any offence caused by remarks he made on Match on the Day 2 shown last night”.

This isn’t the first time Pardew’s mouth has gotten him in trouble. As the manager of West Ham he was caught on camera making disparaging remarks about his club’s fans, leading the team to get him a media adviser to help win the fans back.

The Best Alternative Brackets EVER

With everyone agog with excitement for the NCAA tournament, the internet is buzzing with people trying to capture that zeitgeist and my very good friend Eick over at So Good Blog has come up with by far my favorite iteration of bracketology, Meat Madness!

Pairing 32 different meats in 4 brackets, eventually America will crown a winner who will reign over all of us, until next time. The brackets are: “Red” meat, Poultry, Pork and Seafood and there are some tough decisions to make along the way. Click on the brackets below to print it out and make your picks, surprisingly enough to my rabbi, I find the pork region to be the most difficult to wade my way through.

Obviously, it’s hard to go against bacon in anything, but pitting sausage versus ribs, in the first round, and putting ribs down as a 7 seed!?! That’s brutal! For me, bacon, sausage and ribs are the top three seeds in the pork region and to lose one right away is a real kick in the nuts.

My final 4: Steak, Chicken, Tuna and Ribs in an upset. MEAT MADNESS GET EXCITED BABY!

A-Rod LOVES Himself Some A-Rod

Even when he gets injured and can’t play baseball Alex Rodriguez hovers over everything baseball. Here is his cover shoot for details magazine which should go a long ways to convince everyone that A-Rod isn’t a self-obsessed douchenozzle. Oh yeah, and the story was written by Jason Gay. Seriously.
