LSU at Alabama. Saturday night, 8 p.m. ET, on CBS with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson calling the action. The hype for this one has been out of control (the game is being compared to these 17 other showdowns), but it's justifiable since this a rare No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup. If you want to hear people who know what they're talking about preview the game, check out the Mandel Initiative podcast with SI.com's Stewart Mandel, who was joined by Danielson this week. OutKick the Coverage has your Tigers-Crimson Tide drinking game. And BoDog.com Sportsbook manager Richard Gardner provides this betting nugget: "At the pace that the LSU-Alabama game is getting bet right now, this will almost certainly be our highest bet college game of the year to date and may even rival the BCS championship. As predicted the public is hitting up LSU taking the five points on the road, with about 75 percent of the money on the Tigers."
Tirade Of The DayThe Browns have been awful for a long, long time. Cleveland radio host Tony Rizzo has had enough, and he expressed this on his show yesterday. The clip starts a little slow, but I can assure you that it picks up as it goes along. (Thanks to Eric, of Cleveland, for the link.)
There's Dumb And Then There's ThisA Baltimore area high school soccer team has had their season canceled because ... and you're not going to believe this ... they did the Bernie Dance (from Weekend at Bernie's II) after a recent win.

First discovered you during my tour in Iraq. Over the years you've brought my attention to many hot ladies. But, by far, No. 1 has been Lucy Pinder. Bring her back for my birthday man! Thanks and keep up the awesome work." I can't deny an Iraq veteran on his birthday, so here's some Lucy Pinder.
How Was Your Trip?The guys in charge of the first-down markers at football games don't get much attention. Well, they're getting some attention today, but, of course, it's for a blooper.
The Hot Clicks PodcastRays third baseman Evan Longoria joined the latest edition of the Hot Clicks Podcast to discuss the classic, final day of the 2011 regular season (when Longoria hit a walkoff homer to send Tampa to the playoffs), the frustrations that come with always playing in front of so many empty seats, whether he has been trying to hit on U.S. soccer player Alex Morgan over Twitter, whether he'd be a candidate for Kim Kardashian's next athlete boyfriend, his memorable viral video in which he "saved" a reporter and much more.

Crazy Ass S--- Video Of The DayCraig, of Victoria, BC, Canada, says, "File this under "Crazy Ass S--- Video Of The Day" or whatever you want to call it. It's basically these guys combining slack-lining with base jumping. I have never seen anything like this, check it out." Craig ain't kidding. I actually had a mini-anxiety attack watching this video. For the details behind it, read this after watching the clip below.
