Entertainment Weekly compiled its list of the top 14 football movies and TV shows. It's an admirable effort, but let's just say we have a difference of opinion (we would have included Paper Lion, The Program, Invincible and Radio over The Water Boy, Little Giants, Playmakers and Diner, a non-football movie). At least Friday Night Lights made the list, giving us an excuse to post this picture of the show's female stars.

With Britney Spears' "performance" at the VMAs still grabbing national headlines (as depressing as that may be), we feel the need to say something. There was a laundry list of problems with her failed comeback, but the one we can't get over hearing about is her weight, which we thought was pretty good for someone who's had two kids in the past two years.

Spears is simply an embarrassment, and it has nothing to do with her figure.

No matter what Pacman Jones does the rest of his career, no one can ever call him a "loser." Well, at least when it comes to professional wrestling titles. The embattled Titans cornerback won the TNA Wrestling world tag team championship along with Ron Killings during a pay-per-view event on Sunday while his "other" teammates were busy winning their season opener against the Jaguars.
The Van Is On The Field
There's tearing down the goal posts, and then there's this: A high school football game in Wisconsin was delayed about an hour after an 82-year-old man reportedly smashed his minivan through a chain-link fence and into a goal post.
