Luis Moreno is the Michael Vick of Colombian Soccer

As you can see Colombian soccer player Luis Moreno likes to kick defenseless animals. In a way he was just paying respect to Michael Vick. Except Vick would have electrocuted and killed the owl if it wasn't a good fighter. I guess what I'm saying is Moreno is an asshole but not any bigger than Vick. Vick's a-hole is the Chernobyl of all a-holes.

Moreno like Vick could be facing jail time up to 3 months for kicking the owl which later died today.

Zach Enyeart Trick Shot Long Snapper

You have already seen the trick shot videos of Johnny Mac and Alex Tanney and while they were damn impressive long snapper Zach Enyeart may have them beat. Enyeart just graduated from Washington State and is eligible for the NFL Draft. With his video ending ball shot I would most certainly draft a guy with his skills. Who doesn't like a ball shot?

Is the Cam Newton Story about to explode again?

I'm already kind of sick and tired of mentioning this story but apparently we might be getting ready for a second dose of Cam juice. And yes it tastes disgusting. There are new allegations about to come out revolving around Cam Newton actually being present during a taped audio conversation in which money was discussed for the supposedly "play-for-pay" Heisman Trophy winner. The audio tape apparently involves Cecil Newton and former Mississippi State players John Bond and Bill Bell with Cam in the room. The NationalFootballPost.com has more to the story...

The host of a Huntsville, Ala., sports talk radio show says he has heard audio tapes, allegedly in the possession of former Mississippi State players John Bond and Bill Bell, that implicate the dual-threat signal-caller in his father, Cecil’s, pay-for-play scheme that was investigated by the NCAA.

Scott Moore, an Alabama fan and a college football speaker, said Friday during a radio interview with WNSP in Mobile, Ala., that he heard tapes of Cecil Newton selling his son's services to Mississippi State while Cam was in the room. Moore also claimed that Cecil Newton said he had received an offer from Tennessee for $200,000, but that he’d give Mississippi State a $20,000 discount.

According to Barrett Sallee of CollegeFootballNews.com, however, Moore contradicted himself regarding the amount supposedly offered by Tennessee. In an interview on Mississippi-based 1st Call with Matt Wyatt one day before the interview in Mobile, Moore stated that Tennessee offered $150,000 for Newton’s services and not $200,000.

Of course, Auburn and Tennessee are the Crimson Tide's two biggest rivals and both are implicated in Moore’s claim.

Now it looks like Tennessee might have been involved and honestly who wouldn't be surprised especially if Lane Kiffin was still the coach. Or it could all be BS created by Cecil to drive up Cam's price. It's all conjecture at this point and until I see an actual money trail going from point A (Auburn or someone affiliated with the program) to point B (Cam or Cecil) then there is nothing the NCAA can do about it. Maybe rules were broken and maybe they weren't. At this point I want proof and not rumors. If someone took $200K there should be someone who is in the know who is willing to sell their story to make a lot of money. Until then we just have bitter Mississippi State and Alabama fans grasping at straws to discredit Cam Newton and Auburn. All is fair in love and college football.

Epic Beer Chug

God I miss the German beer gardens. Fucker just chugged a liter of Spaten in less than 6 seconds. Count it. 6 fucking seconds. Unbelievable. I consider myself a pretty decent beer drinker and I can fully admit there is no way I could chug a hearty Spaten that quickly. I think this kid might be my hero. Sorry Charlie Sheen. You got competition.

Just another Blake Griffin Alley-oop Dunk

These Blake Griffin dunks are starting to get old. It's like he doesn't even try anymore. They just come so damn easy for him. Despite Griffin's 27 points and 12 boards the Clippers lost to the horrible Sacramento Kings. I guess that isn't saying much since the Clippers are a horrific 21-40 now.
