Boston area hospitals prepping for Gronkowski’s week 1 return

Written by SLAdmin on September 3rd, 2014

After an injury riddled 2013 season, the New England Patriots appear to be going into the 2014 season with a healthy Rob Gronkowski. Gronkowski said Monday that he’s been given the green light to play in the season opener against the Dolphins.

Local area hospitals were prepping for a busy weekend. “We’re super excited, we’re super pumped” said area orthopedist Milton Yang. “You never know with Gronk. Will he break an arm? Will he fracture his tibia? Will his infection develop an infection? Will his head simply fall off? This is a challenging time of year for us. But we’re mentally and physically ready for his admission this weekend.”

Gronkowski indicated that he won’t be playing every snap, wanting to get his “feet wet” against Miami then taking more snaps as the weeks progress, provided he doesn’t shatter his clavicle on the first play of the game. “Look as long as my skeletal structure doesn’t unexpectedly disintegrate on the first drive, I’m looking to have a big year. In fact, I’m calling it – I’ll be setting yardage and scoring records this year. Provided my blood doesn’t mysteriously change into some kind of foam polymer or pancake batter. Which I think is fairly unlikely. This is the year of the Gronk.”

He did suffer a mild ankle sprain during the interview, but didn’t think it would be a factor.

Rob Gronkowski is Flimsy

Tom Brady – “When I suck, I’ll retire”

Written by SLAdmin on September 2nd, 2014

In response to the Patriots abruptly trading guard Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, Tom Brady reaffirmed his commitment to the team during his weekly appearance on WEEI in Boston.

“There’s nowhere I’d rather play, I know that,” Brady said, via CSNNE.com. “I love playing for this team and I love representing this team. Hopefully I can do that for as long as I can. When I suck, I’ll retire.”

As such, the New England Patriots announced earlier today that Tom Brady will be retiring effective immediately.

Robert Griffin III gets a statue at Baylor

Written by SLAdmin on September 1st, 2014

Robert Griffin III returned to Waco this weekend to see himself immortalized at the age of 24. Griffin made the trip to Baylor where a new football stadium has opened that features a statue of Griffin outside.

Upon learning the news that a statue of himself was being erected, Griffin had nothing but positive things to say. “It’s amazing. You don’t dream about that kind of stuff,” Griffin told the Waco Tribune. “There’s a Statue of Liberty and all those other statues, but you don’t ever dream of having a statue honored in your name….. I don’t look at it as anyone putting me on a pedestal. I look at it as I know where my blessings come from, and they’re using me in a way to help other people. Not just to say, ‘he’s a great football player.’ I hope they say, ‘he’s a great man’ as well.”

Unfortunately for Griffin, Baylor University has one of the least respected sculpture departments of any Division 1 school. Griffin’s tone turned a bit sour after finally getting a glimpse of the new statue:

“Uh, wow… Well, I guess it’s still an honor. Man. This is just flat out fucked up right here. I guess that one half of it kind of looks like me. I mean if I didn’t have hair. Shit. I’m speechless.”

Baylor President Ken Starr gushed over Griffin’s legacy at Baylor, “Robert’s image is bound to be the landmark of our great city. This statue will become synonymous with Waco.”

Griffin III’s mother, with a look on her face that could only be described as abject horror, added “It’s probably better than being known for the Branch Davidians. Probably. ”

Texans cut 72 players, get down to 3

Written by SLAdmin on August 29th, 2014

The Houston Texans are the latest team to get under the 75 man roster limit. However, they are the only team at the moment to have shattered the roster limit, reducing their active roster to 3 players. When reached for comment, head coach Bill O’ Brian explained, “We set out to start really strong this year, so we made a list of every player we felt couldn’t cut it at the pro level. After releasing them, we’re down to 3. No question, those 3 will have to step it up.”

Among the players cut were Brooks Reed, Tom Savage, Jawanza Starling, Dwane Brown, Andre Brown, Randy Bullock, D.J. Swearin.., oh you get the idea, essentially anyone who isn’t named Brain Cushing or JJ Watt.

Oprah’s Michael Sam Documentary Canceled

Written by SLAdmin on May 26th, 2014

Michael Sam has canceled his reality show with Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network. His agent recently stated, “After today’s meeting with the Rams, we felt it is best to postpone the project. This will allow for Michael to have total focus on football, and will ensure no distractions to his teammates.”

OWN was quick with a follow up statement. OWN president president Erik Logan remarked, “After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams. ‘The Untitled Michael Sam Project’ has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dreams of making the team. OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. It’s clear that we, along with the world, recognize the opportunity that Michael has in this moment. We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams.”

Oprah Winfrey however, seems to think the project is not entirely dead, though it would no longer involve Michael Sam. At a recent press conference regarding the matter, she stated, “Sure, it would have made for an inspiring story. African American, college star, the first openly gay draft pick, you couldn’t make up anything more poignant. However I think we can still salvage this thing. Instead, we’re going to document a year in the life of a fat, white Mormon.”

As such, a film crew from the OWN network has been assigned to chronicle the next year in the life of Oakland Raiders offensive guard Tony Bergstrom. Bergstrom was drafted by the Oakland Raiders with the 95th pick in the 2012 draft. He is indeed Mormon, as well as white and fat.

Hard pressed to really find a common thread in the two stories, many present requested clarification. “I don’t think you’re seeing the big picture”, replied a clearly frazzled Winfrey, “Tony Bergstrom is quite fat, really white, and highly Mormon. This is inspiring stuff.”

While perhaps atypical for the NFL, if one found one’s self in say Utah, one couldn’t swing a dead cat without it hitting a fat, white Mormon in the face. Perhaps sensing that not a single individual present sensed even a mild similarity between being the first openly gay player in the NFL struggling for a roster spot VS. being a Mormon, white, fat starting NFL guard, Winfrey attempted to change the subject.

“Look, I’m Oprah, I’ve been fat. Then thin, then fat again, then sort of thin, then fat, then Free Willy fat, then just fat again. And if all that has taught me anything, it’s that I love America. And don’t fry everything.”

There were no more questions.

Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha to visit Ravens

Written by SLAdmin on April 10th, 2014

Alabama standout safety Ha-Ha Clinton Dix recently met with the Baltimore Ravens. He’s also met with the Lions and Titans, both of whom select before the Ravens who will be on the board with the 17th overall pick. Less known, his younger brother, Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha has also been making the private workout rounds. While Ha-Ha (Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha, not Ha-Ha Clinton Dix) did not attend a major university like his older brother, he’s sparked quite a bit of interest from more than one NFL team.

John Harbaugh said, “I think in many ways, Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha is a better draft choice than Ha-Ha Clinton Dix because you can grab him in a later round. Clinton (Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha, not Ha-Ha Clinton Dix) is in many ways just as explosive as Ha-Ha (Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, not Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha).”

Also visiting NFL teams is Ha-Ha’s half brother, Ha-Dix Clinton Clinton Da-Hix Clinton. Bills head coach Doug Marrone had a private workout earlier in the week with Dix (Ha-Dix Clinton Clinton Da-Hix Clinton, not Ha-Ha Clinton Dix or Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha) and he came away impressed. “Clinton Clinton is the hidden gem in this draft. He may not go as high as Ha-Ha (Ha-Ha Clinton Dix, not Dix-Dix Clinton Ha-Ha or Ha-Dix Clinton Clinton Da-Hix Clinton) but he’s going to an NFL starter in my opinion.”

We reached out to Dix’s mother to inquire as to just what in the hell is wrong with her and what the fuck was she thinking. We’re still awaiting comment.

Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars among least popular internet searches

Written by SLAdmin on April 7th, 2014

ESPN reported this week that the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars have abysmal search numbers on the internet. Based on Google search frequency, the Tennessee Titans rate just behind such juggernauts as MLB’s Colorado Rockies and even with the NHL’s Calgary Flames in popularity.

The data of global search traffic searched major North American professional leagues and comes from Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com. The Titans rank 80th on the list, behind four teams from the Mexican soccer league. Understandably, only the Jacksonville Jaguars are less looked for than the Titans in global Google searches among NFL teams.

Reached for comment, Ruston Webster general manager of the Titans expressed disappointment. “It’s a bit embarrassing. Clearly we have to take steps to increase the team’s popularity. I mean, look at some of these. Seriously? The Tennessee Titans are searched for less than ‘Midgets having sex with cars’ and ‘Bangkok she-male watersports’? What does that last one even mean? And no, I take no solace whatsoever in the fact that we barely beat out ‘granny tranny orgy’. This list is revolting by the way.”

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley tried to find the bright side. “Hey, cool we beat out ‘hot toe worship’ and ‘amputees in nylon’, nothing wrong with that. I mean, sure ‘Jacksonville Jaguars’ is searched for a full 10 times less than ‘bathroom discipline webcam’, but at least we’re more popular than ‘Amish Bukkake’. It just shows this organization headed in the right direction.”

Roger Goodell bans the N-Word, unless you’re referring to Knowshon Moreno

Written by SLAdmin on March 25th, 2014

As expected, Roger Goodell has announced that the NFL will be prohibiting the use of the N-Word and has given officials the authority to call penalties if they encounter it’s usage during games. “The time has come for this hateful word to be banished once and for all from the National Football League.” said Goodell in a midday press conference on Monday. “That word is an offensive term and has no place in our lives in 2014. I’ve given officials the ability to call a 15 yard penalty if they encounter a player or coach using it during game time. This is a good day for the NFL and an especially good day for the youth of America who look up to and emulate these players. No longer will the N-Word be permitted in the NFL. Unless of course you’re directing it at Knowshon Moreno, then it’s fine.”

When asked to expound upon this most unusual exception Goodell continued, “Knowshon Moreno is the worst kind of human being. If there were justice in this universe, he’d get hit by a car today. Now, look, I’m committed to my job and I want every man in this league to be a strong role model for the youth of America. Except Knowshon Moreno, he needs to die. Every fan of this game, no matter how old, deserves to watch an NFL where that word simply does not exist. The N-Word is nothing but an expression of hate and there is no place for that word in the 2014 NFL. Again, unless you’re directing it at Knowshon Moreno.”

This bizarre situation has many people scratching their heads, not the least of which is Knowshon Moreno himself. “Roger Goodell is insane. I met the man once, years ago, in a public urinal at a hall of fame game. I have never said more than 3 words to Roger Goodell. We peed next to each other, I commented on the weather. That’s it. I have no idea what this hatred is. But let me say this – he had better hope we never meet again.”

Pressed further, Goodell ultimately added “I’m just saying. Sometimes certain stereotypes develop regarding, you know, certain people with certain skin color and the size of certain appendages relative to people with other skin colors and, you know, I’m just saying, don’t believe everything you hear, that’s all. This rule is a good NFL rule. And my wife said it’s plenty big, so shut up already.”

Chargers re-sign wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu

Written by SLAdmin on March 17th, 2014

The Chargers have retained wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu. He was active on special teams and had two regular season game-winning touchdown catches in 2013.

The club announced Monday they re-signed the wide out to a one-year contract. Seyi Ajirotutu, 26, led the Chargers in special teams tackles a season ago. He’s also had three catches for 64 yards, most notably a big 26-yard touchdown in the final minutes of the Chargers’ upset of Kansas City back in November.

When reached for comment, general manger Tom Telesco explained, “We couldn’t be happier to have Serriya Aye-iroooo… Tu.. Tu. Tutu? Uh, Say eye Age I ro oh… Tu. too.. back in the line up for another year. One of the things coach Mccoy said to me once the off season started is make sure we re-sign Sahee I.. I, AhjI? Ahjeye.. row?.. ro, tu tue for another year. So it was one of my priorities.”

Head coach Mike Mccoy also expressed excitement about the signing. “Oh man, once I heard, I was thrilled. I sat him down in my office and said, ‘Hey, man, this is going to be your breakout year. We’re really counting on you to turn it on this season, guy. Now get out there and make sure the world remembers your name. Which of course you know already, so no need for me to repeat it, that would be silly. Sport.’”

Pat, I’d like to buy a “Schwa”?

The Cleveland Browns release all their healthy quarterbacks

Written by SLAdmin on March 13th, 2014

In a surprising move, the Cleveland Browns have released both quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell, the team announced Wednesday. General manager Ray Farmer expressed thanks to both players in a statement, “First and foremost, the Browns would like to thank Brandon and his agent for being true professionals. The circumstances in which he found himself were not easy for him or the team. After discussions with Brandon and his agent, we’d like to give him the ability to pursue other opportunities.” Farmer continued, “We appreciate Jason’s contributions to the Browns in 2013. He’s a respected veteran player in this league. We felt like at this time, early in the free-agency period, we would give him a better opportunity to move forward. We wish Jason the best in his future endeavors.”

With Brian Hoyer recovering from a torn ACL, this leaves the browns critically thin at quarterback. We reached out to first year head coach Mike Pettine and asked him what direction the team was looking to go. Apparently the Browns plan to do away with the quarterback position entirely.

“We’ve got a few guys in mind, we’ve yet to settle on one. But without question, we’re going punter.” Asked to elaborate, Pettine continued, “Look, I know this is my first year as head coach, but we’re just fooling ourselves here. I’ve watched enough tape. This offense gets the ball, maybe gains a yard or 2, loses a few, probably gives up a sack, then we just punt the ball away. That is 99% of the Cleveland Brown’s offensive series. So I said to the GM let’s just dump the position and play to our strengths.”

Ray Farmer does indeed seem to be onboard, “When Mike first suggested it, I thought it was absurd. But once he broke down the numbers, it began to make complete sense. He demonstrated that over the past 2 seasons, if the Browns had simply punted the ball on the first down of every offensive series, we would have had 12 fewer fumbles, 26 fewer interceptions, scored 24 additional points and actually won 3 more games over that span than we did. I was sold.”

So how does this radical new scheme affect the Brown’s draft plans? Pettine explained, “We’ll we’re obviously going to try to beef up our line. We need an offensive line that can keep a punter upright for at least 5 plays a game. We’re obviously not there yet, not by a long shot, but with a few key additions in the draft and through free agency, we can get closer.”
