College Superfans

​Another weekend of college football is in the books and we have collected our favorite photos from the stands for this week's Superfans gallery. Hopefully you're more excited than the guy on the right, who forgot to smile.


25 Best NFL Sack Celebrations

In honor of Ryan Kerrigan and his Shawn Michaels pose, Complex has the 25 best sack celebrations in recent history.


Another Important Change.org Petition

In A.M. Clicks, I mentioned the change.org petition started by Denver fans to ban Phil Simms from broadcasting Broncos games, which now has 30,000 signatures. Another petition started that I'd like people to get behind -- the banning of Sweet Caroline at Red Sox games. As a Bostonian, I find the song annoying, gimmicky and having zero connection to the city (Neil Diamond is from Brooklyn, not Boston, FYI). Since change.org petitions are all the rage these days, email me (andy_gray@simail.com) an issue you think deserves attention on change.org. I'll post the best later this week.


Lovely Lady Round-Up

As someone who wears glasses, I fully embrace this fashion statement by Caitlin O'Connor and declare her the newest LLOD (click here for full-size gallery) ... Eva Longoria still looks good in a bikini ... Genevieve Morton's 2014 Swimsuit outtakes.


Hot Clicks Giveaway: Cutters Gloves

My friends at Cutters Gloves, worn by Jamaal Charles, Frank Gore and Pierre Garcon, have provided me with three pair of gloves to give away. As I'm sure you know, Cutters’ C-TACK grip is the tackiest and most durable material used in performance gloves. I'll send them to the 25th, 50th and 75th person who emails me (andy_gray@simail.com) the MLB mascot who grew out his hair for last night's baseball game. The answer was in A.M. Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line "Cutters."

Update (6:33 a.m.): Contest is closed. Winners will be notified. Another contest coming soon.

Odds & Ends

Some music recommendations for NFL fans ... This is what professional football players looked like in 1938 ... Jabari Parker was forced to wear a cheesehead to the Packers-Jets game ... Former Germany goalkeeper Tim Wiese is all jacked up now and may join the WWE ... Steve Spurrier's best sideline meltdowns ... Dwight Howard keeps running red lights ... An Ohio amusement park won't name a roller coaster after LeBron James ... Now you can sit on the couch from Friends ... Why Apple's U2 giveaway was a colossal blunder.


Scenes From the 2014 World Black Pudding Throwing Championship

Since you're wondering, "participants compete by throwing black puddings at Yorkshire puddings on top of a raised plinth. The aim is to knock as many off the platform as possible." 


Two Mavericks Ride a Camel

The Mavs newest ad features Chandler Parsons and Devin Harris riding a camel past a Dirk Nowitzki mural. I don't get it either.


When Intentional Walks Go Wrong

Indians pitcher C.C. Lee throws a wild pitch during an intentional walk. Yikes.


Song of the Day

Counting Crows have a new album out and I really like the first song, Earthquake Driver.
