Pittsburgh Steelers: Super Ball XL Champs

February 24, 2011


Super Ball XL Champs? The Pittsburgh Steelers, of course

Something tells me eBay user jtidirect might have a little trouble moving these things. At least at that price point…

Frump Day Links – 1/26/2011 – Or: Surely the Panthers can find a spot for Jaime Edmondson Edition

January 26, 2011

1 Comment

Jaime Edmondson showing a bit of bottom boob Seriously, give the girl a chance. Notwithstanding Edmondson’s tangible assets, the perseverance displayed via her remaining a loyal Panther fan after the 2010 season could very well provide the type of intangibles the Panthers are so sorely missing at the moment.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Our first Frump Day link should hammer the point home…

  • Jaime Edmondson: Loves modeling, the NFL, and shopping in the Children’s Clothing section at various fine athletic apparel retailers [Last Angry Fan]
  • This Valentine’s Day, give the gift of Hand Job. [Sportress of Blogitude]
  • Super Bowl tickets are hard to come by, but at least there’s ample parking – for $990 [Sharapova’s Thigh]
  • Herschel Walker – he’s so hot right now. But is it all just a publicity stunt? [The Victory Formation]
  • N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe – not so hot right now. Probably not a publicity stunt [Statefans Nation]
  • Ronaldinho has always had great technical skills, I don’t think we’ve ever seen him score from behind the goal, though [FootballXs]
  • The UConn women’s basketball team isn’t shy about showing off some ball skills of their own [The Score]
  • Good luck at ESPN, Greg McElroy [No Guts, No Glory]

Stairway to Heaven: Pittsburgh Steelers Edition

January 14, 2011


This is actually from last year’s NFL playoffs, apparently. Conveniently, I suppose it still applies to Saturday’s Steelers-Ravens game, and — if the Steelers are lucky — Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl XLV hopes as well. Pretty clever.

Incidentally, it also happens to be the best cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” I’ve ever heard — but then my experience there is probably limited to only every single guitar shop I’ve ever stepped foot in, so…

Thanks to the Admiral for the tip. The ship has been raised!

Spreading the love, one fatty at a time.

Little late on the Frump Day links today.  All apologies, but “real” work has kind of been occupying my time as of lately.

  • The Victory Formation has scientifically determined that next year’s BCS Champion will be the Tennessee Volunteers.  Probably a relatively safe bet. [The Victory Formation]
  • 5 technical fouls in a span of 10 seconds? Never! [No Guts, No Glory]
  • Blake Griffin comes to the defense of Lebron James, subtly hints at his inevitable, future departure to the Los Angles Lakers [Sportress of Blogitude]
  • N.C. State suffered a tough loss last night at the hands of Boston College. What does this mean for Sidney Lowe? [StateFans Nation]
  • Bengals fans: Now auctioning off their allegiance on eBay [Last Angry Fan]
  • Reggie Bush finally admits, sort of, that the Texans were right to take Mario Williams [Ball Junkie]
  • West Ham striker Carlton Cole reminds me of one of my favorite Onion Sports Network articles of all time [The Score]
  • Brett isn’t the only source of embarrassment for the Favre family, apparently. [Foul Balls]
  • Brett Michaels is headlining a Steelers playoff party? Really? [Terez Owens]

Frump Day Links: 1-5-2011 — Or: “Just how much more can UNC get away with?” Edition

January 5, 2011


Duck getting humped by a dog

  • Frump’s questioned some suspicious practices over in Chapel Hill in past, but it seems the hits just keep on coming. Perhaps taking a page out of Ohio State’s book here? [StateFans Nation]
  • Staying in the great State of North Carolina, it appears — surprise, surprise — that the Panthers are in need of a Quarterback, and that they think said need could be filled by that Andrew Luck guy [Panthers Report]
  • Ben Roethlisberger is apparently getting married to a lovely, formerly obscure and anonymous, physician’s assistant named Ashley Harlan. As long as they don’t honeymoon in Afghanistan, Bahamas, Brunei, Ethiopia, Honduras, Kenya, Mongolia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Yemen, or Zambia, I think things should work out just fine. [Last Angry Fan]
  • Sticking with the theme of QB scandals, Kurt Warner weighs in on Brett Favre’s legacy in the wake of epic ambivalence, not to mention dong pictures [With Leather]
  • Yes, you too could have won $50,000 for winning a beer pong tournament [Busted Coverage]
  • Running a successful professional hockey franchise out of Atlanta, Georgia requires a bit of creativity, however gratuitous, from time to time [The Score]
  • Frump’s done about all it could to inform its readers about the hidden dangers of turkeys, pandas, and even otters .  If you refuse to pay heed to our warnings, perhaps you’ll at least listen to this one. About bloodthirsty, “unkillable” cows. [Sportress of Blogitude]
  • If you haven’t caught the video of “Homeless Guy With Golden Radio Voice” yet, do yourself a favor and check out the new Voice of America [Awful Announcing]
  • Venus Williams’ house is fairly nice. Well, by this economy’s standards, I mean [Sharapova’s Thigh]

Fisticuffs between Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan probably didn’t win NFL any converts…

November 28, 2010


Frump’s been frumping about boxing and MMA-related subjects quite a bit lately, so how could we pass up the chance to log a quick post on the NFL’s recent foray into that growing market?

Now, as I’ve chronicled before, I’m certainly no expert on the “fighting” sports, hockey included. However, notwithstanding the apparent beatdown delivered by Johnson here, my gut tells me that the uproar amongst NFL fans is related more to the relative novelty of the event itself rather than any observed skill.

After all, I imagine most hockey fans would jeer such an outburst — and not out of distaste for the utter lack of sportsmanship displayed. No, they’d probably just be expecting more. More than what they might expect from a tiff between the cast of Disney on Ice, at least, and certainly to not see the players, let alone officials, break it up.

All that said, I’m not suggesting an NFL season already infused with the controversy associated with something like helmet-to-helmet collisions is losing any popularity contest amongst fans of “violent” sports. Far from it.

But if some of the hottest stories around the league — in back-to-back weeks — are going to be Cortland Finnegan’s tap-out and Richard Seymour’s devastating right hook, well, why not capitalize on the trend?

Then again, perhaps they already are.
