Injured Wide Receiver Plans Return

Houston wide receiver Patrick Edwards, who broke his leg last year when he ran into a cart alongside the field at Marshall, expects to return to action next season at full strength.  He was Houston’s leading receiver at the time of the gruesome injury.

If you’re wondering why this is news, it’s mainly an excuse to link to his injury page–one of the worst injuries I remember from last year.

Edwards is also pursuing legal action against Marshall.

Hefner to Sell Mansion…next to Playboy Mansion

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has listed his Los Angeles mansion for sale for $28-million dollars.  But before you go breaking your piggy bank to count your pennies and dreaming of fun in the grotto, be aware that it’s not THAT mansion–it’s the house next door, which he bought in 1998.

The house, which is a 7,300-square foot English manor home, was built in 1929, and has been home to Hefner’s estranged wife Kimberly and their two sons.  It sits on a 2.3 acre lot, and features 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a library and a hand-carved staircase.

No word on any special clauses coming with the house for automatic invites to the neighbors wild parties–but in this market, I think you could probably negotiate that into the deal…

Also no word on whether Kimberly will be moving into another Hefner owned mansion, or looking for houses for rent

Fringe Sport for 2012 Olympics?

While perusing the sports blogosphere they other day, we came across an article on Hugging Harold Reynolds about a Facebook Group that they were in support of.  Being (sadly) a fairly regular Facebooker, I thought I’d check it out.

Turns out, some people in California want to petition the Olympics to add Pole Dancing as an Olympic Sport at the 2012 Games.

Can you imagine the judging controversies when the American Pairs Pole Dancing Team gives the German judge a happy ending?  Or when the Japanese judge awards all non-Japanese contestants low scores for not having enough fetish elements?

Come to think of it, this could be a sport that might finally give NBC some decent ratings for the Olympics–assuming that by then that they aren’t able to ram the whole Michael Phelps bong story down our throats again.  Or maybe that will make it as a sport too, and Phelps can go for 9 gold medals…

Super Bowl Crisis

The recent economic downturn has put a Super Bowl tradition at risk–the bankruptcy of Pilgrim’s Pride in Texas has apparently significanlty impacted the availability of Buffalo wings, which, combined with the high demand for Super Bowl Sunday, is causing prices to skyrocket–as much as a $20 increase for a 50-pound supply in some parts of the country.

Of course, if you do have Buffalo wings for your Super Bowl party, make sure to check out our Buffalo wings recipe.

Lingerie Bowl VI Set to Kick Off

After two years of cancellations, Super Bowl fans will once again be able to delight in the ultimate in halftime entertainment…Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl!  Wait–that was never cancelled–oh, yeah, we mean Lingerie BowlVI!

Lingerie Bowls IV and V were both cancelled due, first in 2007 due to lack of people willing to pay to watch it, and in 2008 due to lack of permitting to play the game in Scottsdale at the same time the real Super Bowl was happening in Tempe.

But in 2009, there will be scantily clad halftime football–there’s even a horrible Web site to prove it–and it will be held in Tampa, at the same time as the Super Bowl.

And, if you go back to the Lingerie Bowl home page, you’ll see that the Lingerie Football League is also finally supposed to kick off this fall too!  Hope & Change really are working!

**UPDATE** In this time of economic turbulance, it appears even the Lingerie Bowl is not safe–it appears to have been cancelled for the third straight year.  This year’s reason: the resort they were going to play the game at was unwilling to require guests to remained clothed at the event.

Another Tournament Worth Excelling At

Some friends of mine regularly get together for drinks, and depending on the location, almost always end up playing those touch screen video games at the bar.  Their game of choice:

Penthouse Erotic Photo Hunt

That’s the game where you have two Penthouse Pet of the Month pictures (usually from the 80′s) side by side, and you have to find the differences.

And of course, now there are Erotic Photo Hunt tournaments popping up.  I suppose for all I know, they’ve been around for a long time, and this is just the first I’ve seen–of course, I find it months after the fact.

Not sure I’d be willing to pay a cover to participate or watch a tournament like that, but if the local bar was having a tournament, I can guess my friends would be in it to win it.
