Talk Sports with These Hotties

Lots of videos today, but that can’t be helped. This one is a sketch written by a friend of mine that features NY Jets employee/Playboy model/football fan Jenn Sterger in a fictious phone sex ad. It’s funny and features hot girls. What more could you need!

The “Soccer???” line fucking KILLS me.

It’s a Banner Play for the Punter!

On Saturday the college football season got underway, with most of the major programs playing. Famed and once-mighty Michigan ran out on their home field to start the season en masse. 5th-year punter Zoltan Mesko — to show off his majestic punter athleticism– jumps up to touch the banner hanging over the field.

Alas, he doesn’t stick the landing and instead gets trampled by his teammates. Looks like a long season is ahead for Michigan…

Keep your eye on the left side of the screen as they run out.

Last week the Lingerie Football League officially began play with the Miami Caliente taking on the mighty Chicago Bliss in the league’s inaugural game.

So far, the product looks awfully nice…

Stumbling Bumbling for the Score!

Here is Idaho Vandal Princeton McCarty taking a handoff about 80 yards to the house. He breaks away from the New Mexico State defense early and has nothing but open space in front of him; no one could tackle him.

No person that is. Instead, McCarty gets tripped up by the ground, falling about 8 yards out of the end zone and ending up tumbling in for six points. I love LOVE watching people falling.

The judges weren’t overwhelmed by his form though which is going to hurt him come medal time…

Red Sox Bogart the Bogaerts

On September 1st the Red Sox signed two Aruban-born brothers, Xander and Jair Bogaerts to minor-league contracts. The young gentlemen made this delightful video showing their enthusiasm for the sport that has exactly what you want in a youtube clip; a CGI animated grasshopper!

Also, did you know that in Dutch baseball is called honkball? I like it!

Coach Takes Team on Field Trip/Surprise Baptism

Baptism08-Tuesday GreneadAh, Kentucky!

Head football coach Scott Mooney of Breckinridge County High School is in hot water after he took his team on a Aug. 26 field trip which would include a motivational speaker and a free steak dinner. I guess, the definition of motivational speaker is a loose one…

Multiple parents are now angry with the coach and the school for taking the 20 players on a school-owned bus instead to the coach’s church, where about half of them were then baptized. Surprise! The district’s school superintendent was there and apparently had no issue with this, despite, you know, multiple court rulings regarding public school and religion.

“Nobody should push their faith on anybody else,” said Michelle Ammons, whose son, Robert Coffey, was one of those baptized without her permission or consent.

“He said it would bring the team together,” Robert, a sophomore.

According to the Superintendent JanetĀ Meeks, a fellow member of the church, everything was on the up and up, with parents aware that the trip would include going to a church revival and that attendance was not mandatory.

“None of the players were rewarded for going and none were punished for not going,” Meeks said.

“If players want to attend the coach’s church and get baptized, that’s great,” David Friedman of the ACLU (who is uninvolved in this issue) said. But a coach cannot solicit player attendance at school, he said, noting, “Coaches have great power and persuasion by virtue of their position, and they have to stay neutral.”

Even better, Meeks said had the kids been “7 or 8 or 9” years old she would have sought parental permission, but thought it unnecessary for teens.

The church’s pastor, the Rev. Ron Davis, said he normally requires minors to obtain their parents’ consent to be baptized but, he added in a statement that is all the creepier from a religious leader: “Sometimes 16-year-olds look like 18 years. We did the best we could.” I’ve used that excuse before; the judge NEVER buys it.

Some other parents dispute Ammons’ claims that the church trip was a surprise, but she isn’t convinced. “We felt he [Robert] was brainwashed,” she said.
