NFL Draft Movie: Costner To Play Browns GM Feb02

NFL Draft Movie: Costner To Play Browns GM

On April 11th, desperate NFL fans across the country will head to movie theaters. My gut reaction: This movie will be terrible. BUT diehard NFL and draft fans will love it enough to keep it from bombing. This is Moneyball for NFL fans. It’s a Hollywood depiction of the Cleveland Browns’ war room on draft day. You might get the sense when watching the trailer that this was filmed over a weekend. I thought it was an ESPN or SNL skit when I first saw it. Thankfully, it is not.   The Browns’ head coach is played by Denis Leary.  At one point, Kevin Costner, the GM asks Leary if they do things differently in Dallas....

Unconditional Happiness — It’s a Thing and You Can Have It Jan29

Unconditional Happiness — It’s a Thing...

You walk into a party and there it is — you start to tighten up. You force the smiles, push out the pleasantries, and hope no one notices that you’re closed up. Perhaps three or four drinks in, you start to feel comfortable.  You may even have a genuine moment with someone in which you forget about yourself. You forget that you are an individual.  You are just in the moment. You are present. Alcohol is the great opener. Everyone gets tight.  Everyone closes. Alcohol loosens. This is the great draw of alcohol. When you are open, you can do anything. The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself  by Michael Singer gave me...

World Series Game 4 – Fox’s Awesome Postgame Montage Oct28

World Series Game 4 ...

Fox screwed up at the end of World Series Game 4 when they decided to show us a damsel in distress instead of Koji Uehara’s magic pickoff (or Kolten Wong’s tragic misstep depending on your perspective).     Then Fox did this and I completely forgave...

Dear Rob Gronkowski, Please Don’t Sue Me Oct15

Dear Rob Gronkowski, Please Don’t Sue Me

Hi Rob and Brittany, Thank you for your recent email (pasted below for your convenience). I became a huge fan of your work over the last few years. 17 touchdowns!? Over 1300 yards!? Unreal. I remember speculating that you might be the best tight end ever to play the game.  I still think you could be the best tight end ever. I truly appreciate that you sacrificed your body to help the Patriots win games. You might be the most captivating and entertaining Patriots player ever — on and off the field. Brady could challenge you, but his off the field antics involve too many lady sweaters and water slides. We understand that you think this...

Patriots Fans in Awesome Bud Light Commercial Sep23

Patriots Fans in Awesome Bud Light Commercial

I love this commercial, in part, because I am Ramsey (to some degree).  I’m sure many of you are also Ramsey-esque or have a Ramsey at your house on NFL Sundays. I don’t throw cheese curls around, but I yell like a madman (on bad days) and did do a double fist smash into two bowls of chips after the Pats lost to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI (it relieved the pain for a few seconds). Kudos to Bud Light and their marketing team, this is a gem. Check out the Drunken Sportsmen podcast here. Related Posts:Best Commercial Ever: I Still Have a...

Kenbrell Thompkins might be the Tom Brady of wide receivers. Is he the next Patriots player to come out of nowhere and have a Hall of Fame career seemingly on willpower alone? Seemingly willpower until you realize that he’s immensely talented, but a confluence of events in his past kept...

Why You Should Eat L...

Let me start by acknowledging that 1) I’m late to the party and 2) I’m a hypocrite. I eat meat almost everyday. Most days the menu includes buffalo chicken, of the boneless variety, slathered in blue cheese. If I eat pizza, it has to have some kind of meat – pepperoni,...
