The Catch

Odell Beckham Jr. :: @WorldofIssac/Twitter

Not sure what superlatives are left to describe Odell Beckham Jr.'s second-quarter touchdown catch against the Cowboys Sunday night but make sure you watch it (shout-out to the great World of Isaac Twitter feed for the image above). Then check out all these great Beckham memes that appeared shortly after, as well as his updated Wikipedia entry. Dallas would go on to win the game on a late Dez Bryant score (and Beckham-like celebration). Also, did you know Beckham's dad and Shaquille O'Neal were roommates at LSU?


NFL Notes

Did I mention there were other NFL games yesterday? Ndamukong Suh and Darrelle Revis had to be separated after the Patriots victory over the Lions, which may have something to do with this dirty move by Detroit center Dominic Raiola in the closing moments of the game ... The Packers beat the Vikings and Aaron Rodgers trolled Minnesota by drinking Grape Crush in the postgame press conference ... Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton celebrated Sunday's birth of his daughter with this touchdown celebration ...  Denver struggled in the first half against Miami and fans booed Peyton Manning. The highlight of the game was this attempted onsides kick by the Dolphins ... Brian Hoyer became the first Browns QB with consecutive 300-yard passing games since 1983 as Cleveland squeaked by Atlanta 26-24. Johnny Manziel's girlfriend thinks the Browns can do better at QB ...  The Ravens don't play until tonight but their team bus already took a beating ... 


College Football Notes

I was traveling on Saturday and missed nearly all the college football action. Luckily, I have Martin Rickman's Between the Hashes and Andy Staples' Punt, Pass and Pork to catch me up on everything I missed. My three favorite items from the weekend are Minnesota winning the newly-created Bits of Wooden Chair Trophy after beating Nebraska, the Tennessee fan who fell onto the field celebrating a Vols touchdown and Michigan recruit Mike Weber decommitting from the Wolverines in the middle of their loss to Maryland. 


Lovely Lady of the Day

The Rangers shut out the first place Canadiens 5-0 last night at MSG, which is sure to please Kyra Keli, today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery). 


Power of Tebow

Tim Tebow gave a woman some cake. That woman cried hysterically. 


Happy Men's Health Awareness Month

To celebrate, the AHL's Lehigh Valley Phantoms are offering free prostate exams to fans who attended Saturday's game. Just bring your ticket stub to the Lehigh Valley Health Network's division of urology and it will take care of you.

UC-Davis students can't say "I'd hit that" ... Sting (singer, not wrestler) wrote a Broadway play that's tanking ...
