Win Your Favorite Team’s T-Shirt!

Can you believe that we are only a little over a month from the start of the 2008 NFL Season?  It seems just like yesterday David Tyree was pulling down that catch in the Super Bowl and we just found out where Darren McFadden was landing in the NFL Draft.  So let’s get this thing going!  Football Jabber is going to give you a chance to win a t-Shirt of the NFL or NCAA team of your choice!

All you have to do is register at the Football Jabber forums, throw down some posts and your entered for the drawing that will be held on kickoff weekend.  There are a couple different ways to win, go to the Football Jabber Forums for more details!

The Jabber Forums are still pretty new and we are going to try and get it fired up for the season.  We have Fantasy Football, NFL, NCAA, and general whatever you want to Jabber about forums.  Get in there!

New Look for the Sports Page

The time has come.  I’m surprised  I went as long as I did without messing with it.  I have changed the theme of The Sports Page to give us more room to work with.  We have a ton of stuff we are going to be doing with the NFL Draft this year that we are pretty excited about.  With tons of stuff we can use more room.

So now that I have changed it all my widgets and crap are gone so I have to tinker around with it.  I guess that will give me a reason to neglect my family today.

MMA Snow Day for me

I have not done an MMA post in a while. It’s a snow day for me here, don’t feel like talking Patriots so that eliminates football…So what the hell, I’ll lay down some random thoughts on Mixed Martial Arts.

WEC: LIVE ON VERSUS!

Tomorrow night there is some free MMA on if you have the Versus Network. I like the WEC. The UFC’s little brother finally has another card. They announced a while ago they signed a deal to have a bunch of live shows on Versus and then they go dark for months. At the rate they are going they will be on Versus in the same deal when Urijah Faber finally gets carded for beer.

Faber will defend his Featherweight crown against Jeff Curran (31-8-1) on the show. Faber, who is 19-1-0 has not allowed one of his fights out of the first round in four fights and has not lost since September 2005 (Tyson Griffen). I’m really surprised they are not pimping the WEC’s California Kid more for this fight.

The card, surprisingly does not get too shallow from there. There are two more title fights…Doug Marshall vs. Ariel Gandulla, and Paulo Filho (right, that Paulo Filho) vs. Chael Sonnen. One I’m looking forward to is the fight between “Lil’ Evil” Jens Pulver and Cub Swanson. No love lost between these two.

More MMA on TV!

Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffen will be on Dennis Miller’s “Sports Unfiltered”Tuesday at 9:30pm ET / 6:30pm PT on Versus. I have not watched the show. I was contacted by some lady from there about putting a couple video’s from the show on the blog here and my site in exchange for something…don’t even remember what it was, but it was stupid shit so I didn’t put it up.

Kimbo Slice is going to be featured on E:60. I did like the one MMA segment they did on the Miletich camp. I’m biased toward that camp since they are in my neighborhood. Michael Smith did a good job but the others talking are morons. “Do they do steroids?” she asks…Shut up I say.

The Ultimate Fighter

So the Ultimate Finale was on this weekend. Mac Danzig won. Would have been a surprise if he didn’t. Tommy Speer is tough but a little too green for Danzig.

The announcement came this weekend (but was rumored for a while) that Rampage Jackson and Forrest Griffen will coach the next season and then do the usual fighting each other at a later date (for the light heavy weight title). I think these two are going to be entertaining as hell. AND…there are all kinds of mix-ups and shake-ups promised for the new season…as if there never is for a reality show. this also means you will suffer through PPV events for a good part of 2008 without seeing these two fighters.

Interim title fights are stupid!

Call them what they are. “The winner of this fight will face the Champion who can’t fight right now for whatever friggen reason.” I’m getting sick of hearing it and it sounds as if the UFC is just making shit up as they go along when they say it. Matt Hughes and Georges St. Pierre will fight…winner will face Matt Serra when he can stand upright. B.J. Penn and Joe Stevenson will fight and the winner will fight Sean Sherk when he can fight again. Sounds to me like they should just make better fight cards rather than make up title fights to make the cards sound better.

Come get your NFL Report Cards

You have to love the NFL. You really just don’t know from one season to the next…or sometimes from one week to the next…who teams are going to stack up once they get on the field. What we have done here at TINO this week is compiled report cards for certain categories determined on how they rank in the league by some stat categories. Doing this reminded me of being a first grader in Azusa, California walking home from school. The kid I was walking with was all stressed out about what his Mom would do when she seen his report card. My mind worked quickly to come to the solution of hiding it under a car tire where she would never find it. Mom frowned on it, I denied being involved.

New Orleans Saints, go out to the Super Dome parking lot and pick a car.

Here are some links that break them down by division. Check them out, at least stop by to say hey to the ladies in each post.

AFC West First Quarter Report Card

We are a 1/4 way through the season and many teams have not performed as planned. We have decided that reports cards should be sent out. Some fans will be happy to see how their teams stack up. Some would like to use the genius plan I gave a kid walking home with me in the first grade…hide it underneath a car tire where your Mom will never find it. Grades are determined by where they rank in the league in each category. Feel free to praise or scold teams in the comment section below. Check out the other divisions as well.

Points Per Game: C

Comments: The Broncos are doing well with their goals of running the ball and stopping the other kids from gaining too many yards. They have been performing average in other areas and need to apply themselves.
