After his salary was reported to be over $44 million in FY 2013, if anyone should be doing commercials where he’s jamming out to a song that goes “i’m the man, i’m the man, i’m the maaaan” it should be the commish. That’s a lot of money, but he is the head of a league that made about $10 billion last year and is showing no signs of slowing down. Goodell, the son of a former U.S. Senator, began as an intern with the NFL in 1982 — rising to its highest position 24 years later.
The cat is out of the bag on what the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be playing during halftime of Sunday’s Huge Super-Important Mega Trademarked Football Game. It’s going to be a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Dazed and Confused”, one of the greatest rock songs ever made. While Led Zeppelin may refuse to reunite for a tour (not a single tour since drummer John Bonham’s death in 1980), you can see “Dazed and Confused” live on the biggest stage in the world by one of the best bands of this era.
Even more interestingly, Flea has said there is a surprise involved. Could this be a collaboration with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones? If you like Zeppelin, you don’t want to miss this performance and game. Here’s the band playing “Dazed and Confused” live:
Shawn wins week 14. It’s getting closer. Only three more weeks to decide the winner! Randy is still in the lead but a lot of folks are right behind him.
Three way tie for 1st place between Ryan, Randy and Matt with 7 correct picks each. It’s actually a pretty good score considering two games ended up at PUSH (Ravens vs. Bears, 49ers vs. Saints). At this point in the season, 4 people are tied for the overall lead with 66 points each, including three of the above players. It’ll get even closer as teams no longer have byes at the end of the season — still anyone’s game.
Starting on Saturday in Lexington, Mizzou‘s Dorial Green-Beckham decided he wanted to win the game all by his lonesome, and he pretty much did just that. The wideout caught seven passes for 100 yards and FOUR touchdowns. The TDs weren’t boring either, here’s one where the cornerback pretty much became non-existent:
Later that night, the big Alabama-LSU game was what everyone had their eyes on, and it was close and rowdy early on. While Alabama went on to beat up on the Tigers in the second half, this LSU fan had fun doing his dinosaur impression after a touchdown. GEAUX T-REX, GEAUX:
In the NFL, there’s no doubt what the play off the week was. Whether it’s bad defense, blind luck, or just divine intervention, this A.J. Green touchdown on a hail mary as time expired was amazing:
This is a Jaguars player celebrating. The Jaguars won. The end.
