UCLA vs. Stanford

Normally i don't like to complain about refereeing (with the exception of Tim Donaghy), especially in games i don't really care about and didn't watch. However, last night's supposed terrible call against Stanford at the end of regulation has been making the rounds, and i wanted to check it out for myself. So i went looking for video proof. And i found it:

I'm not gonna lie, that's a pretty bad call. Actually, that's a really bad call. He never touched him with the arm, and just barely got a little body (that sounds dirty), but nothing that should warrant a foul being called in that situation. That was a great block ruined by a terrible call.

Oh, and then there's this: UCLA's Darren Collison, who the 'foul' was called on, said after the game: "I was fortunate to get a foul on that call, I heard it was a makeup."

Well Then...

The NFL's True Ironman

Hat Tip to The Daily Norseman, a great Vikings Blog, for this article about the NFL's true ironman. And here's a hint: It's not that retiring qb from the land of the cheese...

This day is turning into a homerific day, with posts about the Hawkeyes and the Vikings. It doesn't happen often, so umm, deal with it.

Jake Christensen

This post over at Black Heart Gold Pants is pretty mean, yet i find it wildly hilarious.

And yeah, i've been linking over to BHGP a lot lately, but they're a way better source for Hawkeye news and crude humor than i am. What can i say, i'm lazy.

Brett Favre Press Conference

This is pretty much everything i wish Brett Favre would have said at his retirement press conference...

Coyotes In Playoffs Good For Hockey Fans?

There's a good article over at Deadspin that makes the case that the the Coyotes need to make the playoffs, as they would be a compelling story for casual hockey fans. The article is written by Greg Wyshynski of the Fanhouse and The Fourth Period. It's a good article, if however brief, and mentions our young talent core and outstanding goalie. Read the article here...

Randy Moss Still Burning The Packers

According to reports, Brett Favre has decided to retire. According to at least one story, it's because of the Packer's refusal to go get Randy Moss, who Favre pushed them to get last year, and apparently pushed them to get this year as well. The retirement rumors come just hours after Moss signed a new three-year deal with the Patriots.

As a die-hard Vikings fan, I've watched Favre's career about as closely as anyone other than Packer fans. I've watched him kill my Viking's teams over the years, and i've also watched him suck a nut for over a decade in the dome in Minneapolis. I watched him break the all-time TD record against the Vikings this year, and i've watched him throw three picks to the Vikes in Lambeau in the playoffs.

Although i have always had a bitter hatred for the man that the entire country adores, and have grown increasingly sick with the Favre-love being spewed the last few years, i have to admit he had an impressive career. That said, i particularly enjoyed his descent into the can't-quite-do-what-he-used-to, throw-more-picks-than-TD's, kill-your-team-in-big-moments qb he has become the last three or four years.

Time for the Aaron Rodgers era to being in Green Bay.

UPDATE: Some of my favorite Favre memories below (Pay special attention to the INT's in home playoff games against the Vikings, Eagles, and Falcons within the last five years. Oh, and my favorite, where he throws the Pick-6 off his knees. Only Favre has the arrogance to even attempt that...)

Digger Phelps Getting Down

I can't decide if this is hilarious or creepy...



On second thought, that's just creepy...
