As Seen on TV: flat stomachs and awful nerds

"Admitting this will not suddenly make me jump up and buy it. Stop admitting it. I liked Domino's better when they just lied to my face. Lie to use Dominos. Lie to us like the consumer zombies you think we are."

Written by Monday, 15 September 2014 19:10

Our five wagerers have been given $10,000 in imaginary money to gamble with this NFL season. In week one all but one of them took a bath. Each needed a little lesson in bankroll management and a little more information about the lay of the land on 2014. Now that they've been stung once did they improve in week two or are our heroes going to go bust before the mid-season? Let's find out.

Come on guy...with Phil Simms

Written by Monday, 15 September 2014 14:38

"Either way, he's done enough to prompt fans to launch a petition to get him removed from calling the Broncos game. Good luck with that. Controversy sells, and even when it's in the pasty white, gassy-dad package of Phil Simms, people will tune in to hear what he has to say (usually negative) about the Denver Broncos."

"Burger King ads are plentiful on Sunday and while they urge you to get fatter and don’t look back, Subway at least has the class to pretend it’s healthy. And if yoga mat ingredients and rat anus meat don’t convince you, maybe RGIII and Justin Tuck will."

Football season is finally here and the Broncos’ first game has come and gone. It was a doozy - especially in the first half - and, as always, it was as fun to watch unfold on Twitter as it was on TV. We “favorited” a few hundred of your best in-game Tweets, culled them, and Photoshopped them together for what we used to call a “Tweetcap”. Use of that title, it turns out, is no longer unique. So we bring you this Tweetrospective. Are your Tweets in there? Other blogs, please don’t snipe my new title. The accreditation is nice and all, but we would rather just have it to ourselves. Enjoy.
