Everyone’s favorite overreacting, nosey, loud mouthed aunt is back at it again. As if we didn’t think PETA was a touch on the annoying side already, they have come up with a solution to the controversy of the Washington Redskins mascot that was thrown into the spotlight on Sunday night after Bob Costas pulled out his soap box he brings everywhere and proclaimed it to be an “insult, a slur“. Their idea is to keep the name of the team the way it is, but change the logo to a redskin potato.
PETA gets that good weed.
Last week, when the Vegas overlords set the betting line for the game between the then 5-0 Denver Broncos and the 0-5 Jacksonville Jaguars, it really wasn’t a surprise to anyone that the Jaguars were getting 28 points according to NFL betting lines online (click to view more lines here). It was the largest point spread in NFL history and for good reason.
The Broncos had opened the first five weeks of the season on a tear. They had scored a combined 230 points behind the almost flawless play of Peyton Manning

President Obama Invites the 1972 Dolphins to White House, Three Decline Because it’s a Chance to be a Grump
It’s getting to be that time of year again! NFL! Time to argue with friends about your favorite team. Time to place your very best predictions for the upcoming games. And, of course, time to start talking about whether or not any team has the potential to take the undefeated title from the 1972 Dolphins. Unfortunately today isn’t about the 1972 Dolphins, but more about a part of the team.
Every year, like so many Americans, I am supremely excited for the idea of the football to come back. Not only for the game, but for the online football betting that goes with it. I look toward the NFL Hall of Fame Game as the chance for a taste of the sweet nectar that is football. And like every year, I am supremely bored by the middle of the first quarter after all the starters (the ones who actually play) are benched in favor of other players trying to make the team.
The Travel Channel has teamed up with the Cleveland Browns to give the fans a behind the scenes look as to what goes on for game day preparation, both for home games and away games. NFL Road Tested shows how hard it is to move an entire NFL team across the country for a game and how sometimes things don’t always go as planned. Being a Browns fan, I enjoy the show and like seeing the inner workings of the team. If you are not a Browns fan, then I can see how you may not enjoy this programming.
Talk about putting your mind to something. During the 49ers/Patriots game last night, NBC revealed a letter he had written to himself when he was in the fourth grade. Not only did Kaepernick say he was a good athlete, he predicted he would be the quarterback of the “Niners or Packers”. Showing that he wasn’t a fair weather fan, he also included “even if they aren’t good in seven years”. Smart Kid. He was also spot on about what his height would be but, as an 11-year-old, he was slightly off on his weight.
