I saw this picture on Reddit today.  Believe it or not, there was a time when people couldn’t see a random picture and compare it to some random scene in an X-Men movie.  My mind is still blown that someone put these two pictures together to compare them.  God Bless The Internet and God Bless Reddit.

Our first Know Your Shorty is Jaclyn Swedberg.  Jaclyn was the 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year.  You can follow Jaclyn on her Instagram and Twitter accounts.  Enjoy!

I’ve heard people say great things about the show Veep for a few years now.  Add in the fact that they have Buster Bluth on the show, as well as everyone’s old crush Elaine Benes, and I’m surprised I haven’t given it a try yet.  But this may be the final straw it takes to reel me in.  Sure ol’ Julia has aged a few years, but DAMN.  When you are worth a few billion and you still look like that?  God Bless.  That tat would give anyone ridiculous street cred in The Capitol.

Am I writing this post as I wait on hold with DirecTV to order HBO right now?  No comment.


Hollywood Reporter-  Nobody is pushing the mute button on Tony Reali. The ESPN personality, who’s brandished the Around the Horn silencer as host of the panel series since 2004, has re-upped his deal with the cable network — and scored a regular gig on Good Morning Americain the process.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Reali’s latest extension has given him the role of contributor on corporate sibling ABC’s morning flagship. Reali will move from Washington, D.C., to his native New York later this year, whereAround the Horn will get a new Times Square space close to hisGMA studio. Reali joins GMA as its first social media contributor and will appear in its recently unveiled “Social Square” to engage viewers online.

Gotta say, I’m pretty happy to hear about this.  When Max Kellerman left Around The Horn, I thought that the show would be doomed.  But Reali, AKA Stat Boy stepped up big time and was able to host the show without missing a beat.  Reali has always seemed like a good dude who actually knows his sports and current events, which is not always the case on that network.  The only bummer is that he will not be on PTI anymore, but I guess all good things need to come to an end.  Welcome back to NY, Stat Boy!  Do the damn thang!

PS- A gig talking about social media?  Has to be a Top 10 best job in the world, right?  I spend every waking hour on Twitter, so I couldn’t imagine getting paid for it.  Some guys have all the luck.  You’re welcome.

Two of the best things on TV from the last year (True Detective and the AT&T kids commercials) combined into one glorious Youtube video.  I respect the crushing of the juice box, too. Nothing like shocking the hell out of kids and having them stare at you like you are crazy.  God damn, when does this show come back on TV?


With the on-field product being a little sub-par at Citi Field, it is now time we turn our attention to the stuff the Mets are giving away for free this season.  Like most people, I am a sucker for free giveaways.  If you need proof, look how people react to the Pepsi Patrol’s T-Shirt Cannons.  Here is the official 2014 Mets Promotional Schedule.

The Mets will usually add a few promotions during the year (especially if the team is struggling), but these power rankings will just take into account the ones that were scheduled at the beginning of the season. (more…)

Incredible Prank

Simply tremendous.  I love the “look back” move he does as he is wondering what the hell is going on.

Hey Billy Bob, what do you give this prank?


Congratulation to Giancarlo Stanton for winning the Baseball Player Deathmatch Tournament.  Hopefully one day he will play for a real Major League team and hit moon shots that everyone will see.





With news of Mario Kart 8 coming out and the eternal question being raised (“will I buy an entire Nintendo system just to play Mario Kart?”), I had to put up a Mario Kart blog post of some sort.  So here is a list of what your Mario Kart racer says about you.  I will use the characters from Nintendo 64, since that is when the game clearly peaked.

Untitled 2

Mario: You are pretty happy with life and enjoy staying in the middle lane.  The missionary position of Mario Kart drivers.  You won’t complain getting Mario, but everyone knows you can do better.

Untitled 4

Luigi: You are either a younger brother or a hipster who likes going against the grain in everything you do.  Nothing interesting or exciting about him, like Mario.  Except he isn’t the centerpiece of an entire gaming dynasty.  Luigi fans give me the willies.

Untitled 11

Peach:  If you choose Peach, there is a 90% chance you are a chick.  There is nothing wrong with that, but facts are facts.  If you are a guy, it means that your favorite racer was taken and Peach was the best remaining character.  The one bonus to picking Peach is that you will hear your friends call her/you the most vile names in the history of mankind every time you do something good.  These range from four letter words all the way to compound curse words that haven’t even been imagined yet.

Untitled 5

Toad: You are clearly a veteran of Mario Kart and will do whatever it takes to win.  There is no hiding Toad’s racing talent or his bitch-like qualities.  You have made a deal with the devil, and that devil is an asshole who wears a mushroom hat and a vest WITH NO SHIRT UNDERNEATH!  I imagine Toad is just a younger version of what Buffalo Bill becomes in Silence of the Lambs.

Untitled 6

Yoshi:  The best character in the game and a gentleman through and through.  Character selection usually is just a race to the Yoshi character for smart drivers.  You are likely a smart Kart player with plenty of pelts on the wall.

Untitled 7

Donkey Kong: If you race with any of the three big bastards in this game, you get a little bit of street cred just because it takes so long for them to speed up.  Choosing Donkey Kong means you appreciate the history of Nintendo or just like giant monkeys.  Either reason is more than acceptable.  A silent nod is the appropriate sign of respect when someone chooses D.K. and can win.

Untitled 8

Wario: Lacks the history of Donkey Kong and Bowser.  If you choose Wario, you are just a dick who wants to be completely different.  Basically it’s like choosing Luigi, but even weirder.  The only acceptable time to pick Wario is if it is your first time playing the game and you have never heard of any of the characters.  Which means in 2014 you have never played Mario Kart, which is even creepier.  I would say if you are from a place without video games or a child under 5 years old, it’s OK.  However, if you have never even seen a video game before and you choose Wario over ALL of the other drivers, there are more than a few screws loose.  If someone ever chooses Wario, you have to destroy the game and never let that person touch a controller in your house again.  It’s in the instruction manual and everything.

Untitled 9

Bowser: A giant lizard with a blond fetish.  I guess I can understand choosing Bowser, he is the boss of most Mario games.  I would say most meatheads would go with Bowser based on size alone.  Clearly an overcompensation thing.

Everyone hates Mondays, so here are some bouncing jubblies to get your week started on the right foot.  Some oldies but goodies here, just give the page some time to load.  Enjoy! (more…)
