Posts Tagged ‘Steamy Latin Looks’

As you may be aware, ESPN recently released their NFL Power Rankings for the month of May. We here at SoD thought it was about time we added our two cents. However we all quickly realized that regurgitating rankings on the teams would be pretty boring (particularly in May) so we reverted to what makes us all great – ranking complete strangers based solely on their looks. With that, enjoy SoD’s inaugural ESPN NFL Writer Power Rankings (based on looks).

The rankings were determined by a panel of : Louie Renown, Career Sgt. Zim, and Scott Howard.

A Hasselhoff for the 21st Century

A Hasselhoff for the 21st Century

To the left is Jets QB Mark Sanchez, if you follow this site regularly (and it seems that now TENS of you are) you realize that SoD has had a long (long!) relationship with the man referred to only as “Mr. SLL”, as seen here, here, and here.

New NFL jerseys for the most recent draft picks have hit the shelves. It is a time when hope springs eternal and the promise of a new season still rests, rose-colored on the horizon. But, it is also a time when some old friends’ jerseys must be retired. Not to the rafters but to the forgotten annals of team almanacs.

This year’s notable casualties include:

Rodney Peete’s Lions #9 Jersey – Replaced by young Matthew (don’t call me Matt) Stafford.

Sometimes the music just speaks to me ... and it says taxes are for suckers!

Sometimes the music just speaks to me ... and it says taxes are for suckers!

Today, Helio Castroneves captured the pole position in the in 93rd running of the Indy 500.   Castroneves won the race in 2001 and 2002, back when the race was a bigger deal than it is now but after the Daytona 500 had eclipsed it as the iconic American car race.  Castroneves is better known for his recent win on Dancing With the Stars, the show where failing careers go to fail epically, and at being better at evading taxes than Wesley Snipes.  I will not be watching the Indy 500 and it is unlikely anyone here at SoD will be either.  If you think this post was an excuse to use the “Steamy Latin Looks tag,” then I applaud you.  Well played reader.

Apparently A Rookie of the Year Hopeful

Apparently a Rookie of the Year Hopeful

You’d think we’d learn a lesson after being burnt by our Kiwi fan base, but…

Last week it was reported that Suns center Robin Lopez received a 2nd place vote for Rookie of the Year. Cute right? You’ve got to assume some media member got his Lopezes mixed up, as Robin’s twin brother Brook averaged 13 points and 8 boards for New Jersey this year.

Then just today it appears that Robin Lopez received one vote for the NBA’s All-Rookie First Team. Again, you’ve got to assume this was just a mistake, right?

For the record, the ROY award is voted on by the media while the All-Rookie teams are voted on by the coaches. That leaves us with one of two options:

For those of us in the wasteland of college football known as Arizona, the last four years have subjected us to the Rudy Carpenter Era and the Willie Tuitama Era.  Thankfully, both have ended.  What’s next for these two gunslingers?  Well neither was drafted in the NFL so it looks like its NFL Europe, Arena League, XFL the UFL.  

This is perfect for these two as the UFL has decided to headquarter its training and housing of players in (drumroll) Casa Grande, Arizona — perfectly positioned between the powerhouse mediocre progams of Tucson and Phoenix.  This has to be, as George McFly would say, “density.” 

 Therefore, without further ado, I give you the world’s first UFL draft breakdown in the form of a comparison between these soon-to-be stars of a league soon-to-be a trivia question on Jeopardy.

The draft is underway. I’m sitting here in the Scott Howard box on the side of the road house along with Sgt. Zim and a couple more pals ready to bring you our thoughts/musings.

1) Detroit Lions : Matthew Stafford QB – Georgia. Everyone knew this was coming. The only surprise was that the Lions didn’t milk the 15 minutes. Congratulations kid, you may be able to buy golden toilets for your house but you’re still the QB of the Detroit Lions. How many games before they force Stafford into action? 1? 2? Do you think he asks for Joey Harrington’s old locker?

The Best Thing to Happen to Detroit Since Robo-Cop

The Best Thing to Happen to Detroit Since Robo-Cop

  • Mike Maycock of NFL Network just informed us, speaking on Jason Smith that “Jason Smith is the best tackle available in the draft to play hard-nosed football”, I’m sure Andre Smith will be furious once he leaves his tea party.
