Chuck & Risse’s NFL Week 9 Predictions

October 31st, 2008 . by admin


Chuck:The Jets aren’t playing particularly well, and Buffalo got spanked by my wildcats last week, so this may be hard to call. I’m going to give the slight edge to the Bills because they seem to be more consistent.

Risse: It’s no secret that while I respect Favre’s talent, I really don’t like the way he gets exemptions based on the fact that he is Brett. With that said, I want the Bills to beat the NY Bretts like they stole something. Bills got it.


Chuck: I used my “mercy pick” on Detroit last week, so I’ll go with Chicago now. They may be ruining Devin Hester, but Kyle Orton is doing his thug thizzle right now.

Risse: Lions get some props for actually looking at Daunte Culpepper as a mid-season pick-up. Anytime your QB runs out the back of the endzone on his own free will, it better be time to holla at D.C. Chicago takes it.


Chuck: Are you kidding me, Cincy is an absolute joke this year so I’ll roll with Jacksonville for the easy win. I DO hope Chad still has that Obama celebration planned and gets in the endzone, I definitely want to see that.

Risse: Jacksonville all day…Next!


Chuck: I’ve also used all my mercy picks for Cleveland, their offense is so wishy washy…. so I expect the Ravens D to eat them alive.

Risse: This one is hard for me to pick. Ravens defense is good, but it’s no guarantee their offense will show up to the same game. Meanwhile, the Browns are inconsistent. Kellen is always crying and Braylon looks like he wants to play Guitar Hero on the rare instances he has actually made it in the end zone this year. I’m going to roll with the Ravens on this one. Flacco, please don’t make me regret it. Read the rest of this entry »

Just Like I Predicted, The Chicago Bears Ruined Devin Hester

October 30th, 2008 . by admin

On June 9th, Chuckstradamus had this to say:

Loading more responsibilities (and stress) on Devin Hester’s back can only take away from his productivity in other areas. Having him on the field as an every-down-receiver dramatically increases the likelihood that he’ll be injured or at the very least knicked up from general wear and tear.

Having Devin on the field every single play is like driving your Ferrari to Wal-Mart to pick up groceries. Some jackass wearing crocs is going to ram his shopping cart full of Cheeze-Its into Devin’s door and put a dent in it.

Half of the NFL season is now over, and not only does Devin Hester have zero return touchdowns… he’s been battling a rib injury since week 2 and injured his quad in week 7.

The man is a return specialist, sit his ass on the bench for 57 minutes of each game and let him do what he does best. Keep it simple.

“Kimbo Slice Should Be The Secretary Of Defense”

October 30th, 2008 . by admin

Tracy Morgan appeared on Late Night w/ Conan O’Brien and …. if you’ve never listened to a Tracy Morgan interview.. you know it was all over the place. At the end he got completely random and mentioned Kimbo Slice, and of course Conan had absolutely no idea who he was. Check it out….

(and a special shout out for AOL who’s using the video without giving me a link back… because I couldn’t use the exposure or anything….. jerkoffs).

But seriously…

The real reason I made this post is because Tracy Morgan also did an interview on Howard Stern yesterday. This dude is so off the wall.. you HAVE to hear this shit… Hilarious.

this will be the craziest intrview you’ve ever heard…..

Video: Marion Jones Interview w/ Oprah Winfrey

October 30th, 2008 . by admin

This is Marion Jones’ first interview since serving a six month prison term for lying to federal investigators regarding her steroid use. As previously reported, Marion claims she took “the clear” which was given to her by her trainer, but she was under the assumption that the substance was flaxeed oil, and not steroids.

However, once federal investigators presented her with a vial of steroids, she recognized the vial as the “flaxeed oil” she had bene taking. Faced with the sudden realization that she was unknowingly taking steroids… she lied and said she didn’t know what they were…. which is what ultimately led to her being sent to prison.

Do you believe Marion’s version of events?

Ocho Loves Obama: The Great TD Celebration That We Missed

October 28th, 2008 . by admin

Ocho Cinco Barack Obama LogoWe’ve seen athletes endorse presidential candidates in the past, but how awesome would it be for someone to rep their prez choice in the middle of a game?

That’s what Chad Johnson planned to do last Sunday vs. the Houston Texans. Pro Football Talk has the scoop:

“We’re told that Bengals receiver Chad Johnson a/k/a Chad Javon Ochocinco had a special touchdown celebration planned for Sunday’s game at Houston, if he had actually managed to, you know, score a touchdown.

Per a league source, Johnson had a Barack Obama banner stashed in each end zone, which he planned to retrieve and unfurl if he had scored.

Such an action surely would have drawn a stiff fine, along the lines of a $30,000 penalty.”

I’m SO pissed we didn’t get to see this! Roger Goodell and the boys would have had a hissy-fit but it totally would have been worth it. The Bengals entire season is already in the toilet, why not make history?

The Bengals play Jacksonville this upcoming Sunday… let’s hope Chad still has this TD celebration in his plans.
