Johnny Manziel Comes In For Browns

Monday, December 1st, 2014 by Justin Thomas

Johnny-Manziel-TDpass-RedskinsThe Cleveland Browns may have just lit the fuse on the Johnny Manziel era, and there may be no snuffing it out.

In the 4th quarter of the Browns game against the Buffalo Bills, with Cleveland down 20-3, Head Coach Mike Pettine made the move to bring in Manziel in place of a struggling Brian Hoyer.

Manziel came in and immediately led the Browns 80 yards down the field, capping off the drive with a 10-yard touchdown run. Of course, Manziel showed his Money Manziel celebration after scoring his first NFL regular season touchdown.

In the end, the effort wasn’t enough as the Browns fell to the Bills in Buffalo, 26-10. However, the in-game decision to bring in Manziel does create a quarterback controversy.

Beckham Jr. Breaks The Internet With Ridiculous Catch

Monday, November 24th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

nfl_a_objts2_300x200Take that Kim Kardashian!

Last night on Sunday Night Football, New York Giants rookie wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., made quite possibly the greatest catch in NFL history on a 43-yard touchdown.

He flew to the ball and grabbed it with one hand in superhuman acrobatic fashion, almost as if he was Spider-Man.

As soon as Beckham landed in the endzone and the official threw his hands up to signal a touchdown, people’s jaws dropped through the floor, their heads exploded as if they had stared at the Ark of the Covenant, and all them internets broke.

Beckham’s Giants teammate, Victor Cruz, tweeted what we were all thinking, “That’s the best catch I’ve ever seen.”

Sports Saturdays: Snow Moves Bills-Jets To Detroit

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 by Justin Thomas

sports saturdays Let it snow, let it snow, oh wait no! Make it stop! That’s what the people of Buffalo are singing right now after having upwards of 8 feet of snow dumped on them in recent days.

With not enough resources to have Ralph Wilson Stadium ready for go-time on Sunday at 1:00pm, the NFL has decided to move the AFC East game against the Jets away from Buffalo.

Players have even resorted to trekking to the stadium on foot for practice this week. Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan tweeted out Friday morning, “Still snowed in! Walking to the stadium.”

The game between the Jets and the Bills will be played at Ford Field in Detroit, where weather can not possibly be a factor, seeing as it is a totally enclosed stadium.

“1989” is Everyone’s Guilty Pleasure

Friday, November 21st, 2014 by Alex Fili

Taylor_Swift_-_1989 As a person who truly despises Taylor Swift, I truly despise that I enjoy this album.
That’s right. I’ve said it. I LIKE 1989 BY TAYLOR SWIFT. She is the queen of bubblegum pop that destroys every male celebrity she has dated. Though she has still kept up with her breakup and makeup songs, she has found a new sound that will make even the most hipster of hipsters rethink their anti-mainstream mindset. With producers like Imogen Heap, Greg Kurstin, who has worked with Tegan and Sara as well as Lily Allen, and Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic, how can you go wrong? Well, I’m saying she didn’t (except for possibly “Shake It Off”, but it’s still dang catchy).
