I mean, i’m not one to talk about tattoos (I have a rocket ship tattooed to my arm) but this one is a ballsy as you can get. Either this guy ate paint chips as a kid or he traveled to the future and saw the this year’s Superbowl happen. Those are the only two causes of this particular piece of body art. Well, good luck to you sir. I will be rooting for the 9ers so you look like an idiot.

Solid moves, Michael Bennett. Although sacking Eli Manning isn’t much of an accomplishment these days.

Source – People in Seattle are geeked about their Seahawks’ success this season, and a possible Super Bowl run. But you could understand if one area car dealership was less than pleased with Sunday’s results.
The Seahawks dismantled the New York Giants in Week 15, 23-0, rallying from a bump-in-the-road loss to the San Francisco 49ers the week before. And perhaps because of that loss, and with the cross-country travel for Sunday’s game, Jet Chevrolet, a dealership in Federal Way, Wash. (25 miles south of Seattle) figured they could offer a promotion that they probably wouldn’t have to make good on.
The deal: Jet Chevy planned to pay out $35,000 to 12 lucky winners if the Seahawks shut out the Giants. Simple as that. So leave it to the Giants to stick it to Jet at MetLife Stadium.
Talk about a horrible idea. The best team in football, with the best defense in football, are playing one of the worst teams in football, who just so happen to have a quarterback who leads the league in interceptions. Of course they got shut out! The Giants are downright awful this year. If Eli Manning has the chance to ruin someone’s day he’s going to do it. Plus, I feel like this deal should have worked the other way around. If you’re a car dealership IN SEATTLE, wouldn’t you want the Seahawks to shutout the Giants? A more sensible bet would have been to dole out prizes if the Giants shutout the Seahawks, which has a negative infinity chance of happening. Just a mind boggling move by Jet Chevrolet. I don’t know much about car dealerships, but $420,000 is a lot of money, and there’s a 100% chance that every employee is fired by the end of the week. Happy holidays indeed.
If I had one million guesses I would never figure out that this guy was a punter. If he grew out his beard he’d be a dead ringer for Tormund from Game of Thrones.
If you put a sweet ass coat on Jon Ryan he’s pretty much indistinguishable from Tormund. With a name like Jon Ryan, I figured he would be a CIA operative or some kind of high level spy. Nope, just a punter. Only the evil Pete Carrol would employ a punter with the name of a spy and the look of a game of thrones character. His witchcraft will run out eventually.
Is the NFL even trying anymore with their marketing? I don’t know what a “Carhawk” is, but I know that’s not one. You know why? Because they don’t exist! In my head I see a Carhawk being an old VW Beetle mixed with a Turkey Vulture. Car body with wings and a huge Vultures head sticking out of the windshield.
It’s game week! And… Shark week!!!

Just a 60 year-old man who gets as excited for Shark Week as my 6 year-old cousin. An all-around good guy who brings his sincere excitement everywhere he goes.
PS- I don’t buy into the hype of Shark Week, but I won’t knock people who get excited about it.
PSS- You know he loved ‘Sharknado’
