CBS has struck a deal with the NFL Network to air eight Thursday night football games per year, furthering the belief that eventually, only Friday afternoons at 2 PM will there not be live football on TV.

Not much more is known about the announcing or studio teams or the structure of the deal, but it was known that all four networks had expressed interest in the arrangement with the NFL Network. because not only does it serve to get a ton of ad revenues during the game broadcasts, but the NFL gets eyeballs on their other primetime shows, a prospect that many networks are interested in since the rise of acclaimed cable shows.

Somewhere, Hank Williams Jr. howls at the moon, knowing that there are viewers out there, completely not ready for some football, and he knows there is nothing he can do to prepare them.

Hooray For Hollywood: Throwing A Football On An L.A.

I’ve always wondered why there’s no NFL franchise in Los Angeles, and up until now, I was content to blame immigrants or the “Gay Mafia.” But as it turns out, I was wrong (perdón, fellas). Now I think it was the L.A. Board of Supervisors all along.

Read more Hooray for Hollywood!

The board has raised the fine for throwing a football or Frisbee on a public beach to $1,000. I’m not sure if I’m more shocked by the price of the fine, or by the fact that throwing a football at the beach is already illegal.

According to the L.A. Times, the updated rules now prohibit “‘any person to cast, toss, throw, kick or roll’ any object other than a beach ball or volleyball” during the Summer beach season. I assume this will not apply to rolling a joint, provided you have the proper paperwork.

Between this and the L.A. City Council’s decision to mandate condoms in porn, Los Angeles is beginning to feel like Nazi Germany, except, of course, for the lack of antisemitism, the lack of militarism, and the staggering array of different races, languages and cultures. But otherwise, it’s just like it! (Source)

Poor widdle Timmy Tebow and his Broncos didn’t make it to the Super Bowl. Tim and company choked hard, hopefully presaging the Broncos future as the new Buffalo Bills.

Don’t mind — I’m just a bitter Raiders fan.

Anyway, since Timmy will be sitting at home watching the tube with mommy on Super Bowl Sunday, I’m guessing he won’t be watching the big game. It would only serve the purpose of reminding him that he’s a boy in a game of men. Here’s some stuff Timmy might be watching on game day while men battle it out on the gridiron.

Left Behind

Obligatory. While Tom Brady and Eli Manning are battling it out, pass for pass, Timmy can comfort himself with this Kirk Cameron classic. Because even though one of them will be getting a ring (and probably an MVP), none of that will matter on the day that Jesus comes back and throws them both into the fiery pits of hell. We’ll see if their Super Bowl rings will save them then.

Veggie Tales

Or maybe Timmy will be feeling a little more childish. Mommy will pop some corn and get him his bankie and he’ll cuddle up with his Veggie Tales tapes. Sometime around 9:30 at night Timmy will get all Tuckered out and pops will have to carry little Timmy up to bed. Then he’ll suckle his thumb in his footy pajamas and dream of a world where he won’t be an irrelevant joke in five years.

Knute Rockne: All American

I know literally nothing about this movie except that it’s about some football player from the 17th Century and it stars a young Ronald Reagan. Right? Shit, I seriously have no idea and I can’t be bothered to look it up on Wikipedia. Point is, Tebow likes Ronald Reagan and football, so he’ll probably be pretty into watching this. Can someone have the intern write a new paragraph where this one is? Thanks.

Chances are that you’ve seen a football game in your life that could only be described as unbelievable. We usually reserve this classification for feats of amazing sportsmanship, but in the case of Hollywood movies, sometimes “unbelievable” just means incredibly stupid. In the long history of

This gritty look at the inside world of college football did very little to associate itself with realism or the rules of the game. This is blatantly on display when hotshot quarterback Joe Kane is able to score a game-winning touchdown despite the fact that he throws an incomplete pass.

The Dark Knight Rises – Field Crumbles

The film isn’t in theaters yet but from what we saw in the trailer, we have some pretty ridiculous events ahead of us. The scene in question concerns a professional football game literally crashed by Bane. The villian rigs the field for demolition and blows it up during game play. However, instead of multiple explosions sending dirt and athlete everywhere, the field actually caves in with the players falling to their doom. That’s one way to fix a game, but pretty unbelievable.

6 More Awkward Steven Tyler Cameos http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/6-more-awkward-steven-tyler-cameos/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/6-more-awkward-steven-tyler-cameos/#comments Mon, 23 Jan 2012 19:06:28 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=243316 He just keeps showing up places. Can we put a bell around his neck or something?

The post 6 More Awkward Steven Tyler Cameos appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Yesterday, the nation watched as Steven Tyler gifted us the sonic equivalent of an ice pick in the brainstem. It happened before the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens. Fans were confused at first when what seemed like a homeless Fraggle wandered onto the field. However, confusion grew after they realized who was cameoing and began to scream the lyrics to the National Anthem. Without Joe Perry to lean against, his rendition was screechy and made the cheerleaders weep.

It seems that every time a Boston sports team makes it to a championship game, Steven Tyler is wrapped in fur and trotted out to the field. There are other singers from Boston, you guys. You don’t have to use him consistently. I’m sure that any member of Bell Biv Devoe would be thrilled to take the gig.

That said, weird. Here are a few other weird places Steven Tyler popped up in where he didn’t belong.

Lizzie McGuire – Himself

Never one to miss the opportunity to caterwaul or linger his eyes on girls a quarter his age, it only makes sense that Steven Tyler guest-starred as Santa Claus on Lizzie McGuire. He’s the first person I think of when I’m trying to cast Santa in my head. Sorry, Kenny Rogers. All of your work has been for naught.

The Polar Express – Elf

Apparently rubbing up on some teen strange wasn’t enough to sate Steven Tyler’s yuletide yearnings. The King of Christmas also had a cameo in Robert Zemeckis‘s The Polar Express as an elf that screams at the top of his lungs. Not sure why they need an elf for that, but this casting makes absolute sense to me. If you’re going to piss fire on the Uncanny Valley in order to scare children, you might as well pick a singer with as strange a face as possible.

After it was discovered that Penn State football coach Joe Paterno knew his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had been molesting children for years, Penn State’s board of trustees planned to allow him to retire at the season’s end. Then someone used a doll to show the trustees where Sandusky touched the kids, and the decision was made to dismiss Paterno immediately.

Ashton Kutcher took offense to this decision and posted on Twitter:

How do you fire Jo Pa? #insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste

Then he evidently had the case explained to him and quickly pulled the tweet before apologizing profusely.

As an advocate in the fight against child sexual exploitation, I could not be more remorseful for all involved in the Penn St. case.

As of immediately I will stop tweeting until I find a way to properly manage this feed. I feel awful about this error. Won’t happen again.

Great! Now if we can only get him to apologize for his career…. (BuzzFeed)

After decades spent annoying people who just want to watch football in peace, Hank Williams Jr. has finally been fired by ESPN after comparing President Obama to Hitler. Looks like I’m voting Obama. Hell, I’d vote for Hitler if it would keep Hank Williams Jr. off my television.

In an interview with Fox NewsFox & Friends (insert your own Hitler joke), the country singer compared the President’s recent golf outing with House Speaker John Boehner to “Hitler playing golf with Benjamin Netanyahu.” For those of you who are stupid, Netanyahu is Jewish, so he wouldn’t want to play golf with Hitler. Get it?

In all fairness to Bocephus, it doesn’t sound like he was making a literal comparison between Obama and a man who gassed million upon millions of people, but was simply trying to imply that Boehner and Obama are polar opposites. But either way, at least I’ll never have to hear that stupid sh*t-kicking Monday Night Football song ever again.

So, do you think it was fair to fire Hank Williams Jr., or are you some sort of Hitler lover?

Let’s Watch Peyton Manning’s Funniest Moments (Since We Probably Won’t Be Watching Him On The Field) http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/lets-watch-peyton-mannings-funniest-moments-since-we-probably-wont-be-watching-him-on-the-field/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/lets-watch-peyton-mannings-funniest-moments-since-we-probably-wont-be-watching-him-on-the-field/#comments Thu, 08 Sep 2011 21:53:17 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=227618 He's like the Louis C.K. of football. Yup.

With the NFL season kicking off this weekend, the hottest topic of discussion is Peyton Manning’s neck injury, which will keep him from building on his impressive streak of 208 consecutive starts. Word today is that Manning is currently undergoing neck surgery because his head is on the verge of falling off or something. Whatever. This is a movie site. Go somewhere else for sports news.

However, because we’re a movie/TV/entertainment site, we would be remiss if we didn’t use Manning’s misfortune to capitalize on the soon-to-be influx of Google searches on his name. So, let’s all send some positive vibes to Manning, hoping that he not only can regain his health, but return to the gridiron, where the guy is every team’s worst nightmare when he has two minutes left and the ball.

Vibes sent? Great. Now let’s appreciate Manning for his work off the field. No, not charity. That’s lame. His unique brand of deadpan comedy that has made him one of the most marketable athletes in the world.

9. Football Cops

Not his most inspired work, but it’s amazing how much comedic mileage simply slapping on a fake mustache and a police uniform can get you.

Big drawback here: Being paired up once again with Eli. Eli’s just not that funny. We get it. They’r brothers.

Still…mustaches!

8. Priceless Pep Talks – Love Handles

Just because he’s being a dick doesn’t mean he’s wrong. Sorry, Jesse

7. Sprint Commercial

Hmm. We’re only three entries in and we’ve already got two that heavily rely on Peyton Manning wearing a fake mustache. I don’t care.

I apologize for nothing.

The NFL is not a place for the weak. In order to win, you need to push your body and mind to their limits, and even that isn’t enough all of the time. It’s an aggressive, punishing sport. So why does it constantly get paired with the cheesiest, fluffiest music? For years, half-time shows and TV theme songs have been performed by odd choices that have nothing to do with the sport. So, why has pop continually gone hand in hand with the big game? It doesn’t keep the momentum going and it’s not pleasing to anyone with ears. Does the NFL really think a shitty musical act is going to make non-fans interested? Is it intended to get our kids dancing? We’re not trying to raise cheerleaders.

Here’s a collection of the worst musical performances that we’ve had to suffer through to enjoy smashmouth football. And, no, Smashmouth did not make the list. Though they so could have.

P!nk – Sunday Night Football Theme



Y!kes!! Th!s st!nks! !’m afra!d P!nk m!ght not be taken ser!ously as an art!st after do!ng th!s. Even Hank W!ll!ams, Jr !s less hokey than th!s and he’s l!ke a poor man’s Randy “Macho Man” Savage.

Elvis Presto – Super Bowl XXIII



Of course, we were all shocked when Janet Jackson’s breast was exposed during the Super Bowl XXXVIII Half-Time Show, but at least that was a show. Take a look at what passed as a Half-Time Show at Super Bowl XXIII. A magic Elvis doing an elaborate, non-nonsensical card trick while dancers end their careers behind him. No wonder the Bud Bowl was so popular. This wouldn’t even be cool on a cruise ship. I really hope the FCC fined somebody over this.

Kat DeLuna – National Anthem



If Kat DeLuna thought these Dallas Cowboys fans were harsh when she butchered the National Anthem, she’d better be happy she didn’t mess with the Anthem of Texas. I’m told they hate that.

The post I Watched The Puppy Bowl So You Didn’t Have To appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Last night during the Super Bowl halftime show, any one with an ounce of self respect changed the channel in disgust as the Black Eyed Peas took the stage. But the real question is what did you watch? If you’re a single guy, or were at least watching with a predominantly male group, you probably switched of to the Lingerie Bowl. Yeah, in a world where seeing hot naked lesbians is only a few key strokes away, seeing girls in their underwear just doesn’t carry the weight it once did. But even so, it’s enjoyable to watch.

For those of you with wives and, or children, chances are you got stuck watching the Puppy Bowl. For those of you that fall into that camp, all I can say is I know your pain.

I like puppies. I like football. By that logic, I should at least be able to tolerate the Puppy Bowl, right? Wrong. After 30 seconds, I was pulling my hair out. That being said, I watched it all, and it was still better than sitting through will.i.am. And for that, I’m grateful. With that in mind, here are the highlights of Puppy Bowl VII.

Getting Ready for the Puppy Bowl

If you look closely, this isn’t really about the Puppy Bowl at all. It’s actually a cleverly disguised car commercial. I bet you were fooled by the seamless product placement. Don’t feel bad. I have a trained eye for this sort of thing. After all, I majored in communication.

Pregame

In case you weren’t up to speed on the regular season, the pre-game show gave you a run down of what to expect. The only problem is that there is no regular season, and the only thing to expect is a bunch of dogs running around.

The Starting Lineup

Now we’re getting down to the nitty gritty. Even a completely jaded asshole like myself enjoyed seeing the starting line up. As long as they keep that ref out of the way, this might be tolerable.

Play Under Review

Well, I spoke to soon. Did you really need to review the play? That son of a bitch clearly didn’t cross the goal line. I can call him a son of a bitch because he’s a dog. The sponsors can’t get mad at that.

Half Time: Show Me Your Pussies

They’re cats. Get it? Get it? Ugh.

Final Touchdown

I’m not going to lie. That last touchdown was pretty exciting. And it was more offense than you usually see in a typical Chicago Bears game. The rats in the blimp were also a nice touch.

CB Wins MVP

Screw CB. I had $100 on Big Red winning. I’m beginning to think the whole thing is rigged.

Puppy Bowl VII Music Video

It’s like the Super Bowl shuffle, except with dogs, and it’s a lot less embarrassing.

The Ref

How disgraceful. This is someone’s son. He has to wake up and look himself in the mirror every day. But, he’s a stronger man that I am. I stick to writing about Puppy Bowl on the internet, where no one can see my shame.

There’s always someone cooler than you, unless you’re Bill Murray, in which case you are permanently on top of the coolness food chain. For example, Murray recently busted the ghost of Packers legend Ray Nitschke at the Bears/Packers playoff match-up in Chicago. How’d he do it? Here’s the story.

Matt Katrosar, a huge Packers fan, flew into Chicago to see the game. He was wearing his green jersey in the stands and didn’t realize he was sitting in front of Wes Anderson‘s BFF. Matt was celebrating a good play for Green Bay, shouting and laughing, when all of a sudden:

“…he was blatantly shoved from behind. Turning to catch a glimpse of his assailant, he discovered his pusher was none other than Bill Murray, a huge Chicago Bears fan, who was unapologetically enjoying the moment. Matt’s friend managed to capture a photo of Murray in mid-celebration [it's on the left], laughing at the rival fans. Naturally, Matt wanted a picture with the legendary actor.

Murray’s response to his request? “Nitschke is a pussy.”

Bill Murray is a bartender, an angry football fan and shooting new movies? There are so many odd stories about Murray popping up somewhere randomly, it’s led me to believe that he’s like Andy Warhol – he’s hired multiple people to pretend to be him, and spread the cool like an army of awesome. That’s an army I will join immediately. An army called Stripes: The Army. (Filmdrunk and BlackbookMag)
