“Tebowing”… soooo 2011. “Griffining”… soooo 2012. 2014 is the year of “LeBroning.” It’s what all the crazy kids are doing on Vine nowadays. LeBron James, aka the face and identity of the NBA is known to exaggerate his body in order to get a foul called, otherwise known as “flopping.”
Flopping- The art of de-masculating yourself and contorting your body in such ways to gain attention of the referee in the hopes of getting a foul called against your opponent.
Teenagers and pathetic adults have taken to the popular social media platform, Vine, to post their own renditions of “LeBroning.” Forgive the piss-poor YouTube clip, but you should get the picture. If the YouTube post doesn’t do the art of “LeBroning” any justice search Twitter or Vine under the hashtag #LeBroning and you’ll get it.
Michael Jordan recently participated in a game of beer pong and was taken to school by a couple regular bros. You can’t hold it against MJ for not being the pro you expected, but you should probably expect him to be better than you at anything else in life. Pretty cool for MJ to stop in with a couple rando’s at the Ritz Carleton in Miami and have a little fun.
It’s a slow sports day, why not throw a jab at the eternal, thoughtless optimist that roams the sidelines in the upstate of South Carolina. His Dabo-ism’s normally take a few minutes to digest and understand, but boy are they great material for South Carolina fans. Remember kids, “It’s only unthinkable if you don’t think it.” Thank you, Dabo Swinney.
Raise your hand, or comment on this post (I can’t see if you raised your hand or not. The internet just isn’t there yet) if you’re like me and your fantasy football team just got “Julio-Ed.” ESPN is reporting that after a second opinion today in Charlotte, Falcons All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones is in fact out for the year with a foot injury. It’s rumored to be the same foot injury that Jones suffered at the NFL Combine. While Falcons fans are in mourning, fantasy football owners are equally feeling the pain. Luckily for me, I just traded Wes Welker, Stevan Ridley and Stevie Johnson for Jones and David Wilson. Timing couldn’t have been worse. The panic button has been pushed.
Don’t get me wrong, Shannon Sharpe was a brilliant tight end and his career numbers certainly warrant his Hall of Fame honors. However, CBS allowing that guy to be a regular commentator is bad enough to make you turn the channel and watch Fox Sports One’s NFL coverage. It might even be bad enough to make you flip over to NFL Network and watch Warren Sapp’s annoying ass commentate.
Let’s not take away from Pharoah’s emmy award-winning performance and embrace his comedic genius for the next three minutes.
When “E:60” aired on ESPN tonight, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs spoke candidly with Lisa Salters and expressed his feelings about Roger Goodell and a conspiracy behind the blackout that took place during last years Super Bowl. Suggs also touched on a subject that leaves you scratching your head. Suggs has always made it known that he does not care for Tom Brady and the entire New England Patriots organization. Suggs went a little bit further and explained how he felt about Brady’s hair.
“I don’t think it’s appropriate for camera,” Suggs said. “I don’t like him. He don’t like me. I don’t like his hair. I don’t know. I don’t like his smug attitude. But then again he probably doesn’t like my a—— attitude. … Everybody just seems to worship the guy, not me though.”
So it raised a question for me. When somebody who carries a mug around like Terrell Suggs, who is he to call anybody out for anything regarding physical appearance. Let’s take a poll. What bothers you the most? Is it the ever-changing hairstyles of the All-Pro quarterback, or your inability eat a meal with Terrell Suggs’s face anywhere close to your TV set? VOTE!!
Earmuff alert: The F-Bomb Get’s Dropped 24 Times In This 1:25 Video. Do Not Listen Within Close Proximity Of Your Employer
Now that Ray Lewis has taken his talents to the set of ESPN, the Ravens might have found their new “pump-up” man. This speech comes from a fraternity guy at Drexel, who appears to take flag football and the Greek Week Championship extremely #ucking serious.
According to the video, “Scizz” has been away from the field and away from leading his “troops” on the gridiron. Maybe it’s an Uncle Rico moment and Scizz has returned to pump his boys up. Maybe Scizz has put on too many pounds and can’t perform as well as he could during his freshmen year, so this 1:25 is his moment of glory. Maybe Scizz really never has played with these guys and they just keep them around for their very own “Ray Lewis” moments.
Either way, Scizz brings the heat because he at least gets one guy pumped up, just check out No. 77 as he jumps around and limbers up in anticipation of ripping the hell out of some flags off some dudes waists. Just think, if these future accountants/insurance salesman/bankers didn’t have Scizz, they’d probably have no realistic shot of becoming the 2013 Greek Week Champions.
For the record, “Scizz’ drops 24 F-bombs in the span of 1:25. Because using the f-bomb repeatedly always drives the point in that much harder. Am I right?
