I've always believed that one of the worst things about the NFL and college football is the ban on celebrations. I say dance, strike poses, use props, do whatever you want. To say both leagues feel the complete opposite, though, would be a huge understatement. In the NFL's latest quest to outlaw anyone providing some entertainment, the league has shut down a savvy marketing campaign by Captain Morgan -- which was for charity! The company was going to donate $10,000 to the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund each time a player was caught on camera doing the Captain Morgan pose. But the NFL put the kibosh on this, citing the rule that a company can't pay a player to promote a product on the field.
Michael Kay is the play-by-play man for the New York Yankees on the YES Network. During the season, someone on Twitter started a Fake Michael Kay account. The page generated a lot of buzz in the blogosphere/Twitter world. Yesterday, the Huffington Post wrote about it, as did the awesomely titled Fack Youk. However, the Huffington Post did not mention the Fake Michael Kay author by name while Fack Youk offered a wrong guess as to who was behind the Twitter account. So here is the full scoop: The person behind the Fake Michael Kay Twitter page is Dave Lozo. He used to run a blog called Why Don't We Get Drunk and Blog, which Hot Clicks linked up several times before Lozo went in a different direction and started the Stupid Sports Blog, where he actually revealed his identity last week.
