The Buzzsaw That Is The Super Bowl

And, Somehow, The Philadelphia Eagles Will Meet The Buzzsaw In The NFC…

Remember that short story from high school English about the hanging soldier who miraculously escapes death? And just as he's seemingly finally escaped back to the waiting arms of his wife, he's cruelly thrust back into the grim reality of the tightening noose? The narrow escape was only a dream. I still feel like I… » 1/11/09 3:51pm 1/11/09 3:51pm

The Buzzsaw That Is The NFC Championship Game


Chuck Klosterman once wrote that the reason soccer was so popular among suburban parents was because the sport allows their coddled, overfed children to run around for two hours without anyone having any idea whether they were playing well or not. » 1/10/09 11:52pm 1/10/09 11:52pm

The PLAYOFF Buzzsaw That Is The Arizona Cardinals


Of all the pictures taken during The Buzzsaw That Is The Arizona Cardinals' NFC West-clinching "win" over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, that one there is my favorite.

He Seems To Have Thought Of Everything: How In The World Did This Not…

So this guy robs a bank, and during his getaway he stops at a salon about a block away for hair extensions and a manicure (by now you've guessed that this occurred in Florida). But that's not the best part. The loot he stole was booby trapped, and during his escape it exploded, covering him in red dye. So to explain… » 12/07/07 1:05pm 12/07/07 1:05pm

Matt Leinart Schmoozes Like A Champion

When you're a fan of an NFL team, all you can hope is that your team's leader is setting his sights on the ultimate prize: The Super Bowl. If he's not trying to win the whole thing, what's the point?
