Got this in an email and we lol’d, but then again, we’re easily amused. Thank God for people with too much time on their hands, otherwise we’d never have been able to post it on The Overnight Open Thread.

Oakland’s playing San Diego tonight. Football Savant Offspring is upset because he has to be at work at 1:00 a.m. so beer drinking will be to a minimum and considering he’s an Oakland fan, this won’t be pretty. The good news is that means the BIG TV is MINE on Sunday!!

For Song and Dance Man and the men in my life:

Fred Biletnikoff – we need him now!

Here’s my take. I figure that the team in black created a special position just for Number 17: Offensive Dorkback. Judging by the rest of the team’s reaction, this particular post-game play was created just for him as well, and he executes it perfectly.

Well, that’s the game, folks, and coming up after the commercial break, don’t miss The Overnight Open Thread.

Awesome action this weekend, complete with fumbles, flags, interceptions and touchdowns, and everyone is twittering about what the final outcome will be. Of course the season’s not over yet and it’s too soon to tell who’s going to be drinking champagne and who’s gonna be stuck wearing pancake makeup.

One thing’s for sure, there’s gonna be a mess to clean up in the Blogmocracy Rec Room once it’s all over and done with… but it’s not over until WE say it is, on The Overnight Open Thread.

One of the great things about international football tournaments (that’s soccer to you deniers) are the lengths that some fans go to get photos posted on the internet:

A fan cheers during the Club World Cup semi-final soccer match between Brazil’s Internacional and DR Congo’s TP Mazembe at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi December 14, 2010.

Right. Nothing like putting the threaded axle of a bicycle wheel on your noggin, giving it a spin, and enjoying some self-trepanation while watching a soccer match.  Of course, the bigger payoff is getting your picture posted a month later on The Overnight Open Thread.

It’s not often I run across something that makes me chuckle out loud. I don’t follow football enough to know who No.84 is, but he’s certainly a guy with a sense of humor who can’t pass up an opportunity to hit on a cheerleader in full view of millions of fans.

Seems to me that if you’re on the sidelines, you need to pay attention to the game. If you don’t pay attention, you might end up as a .gif animation on The Overnight Open Thread.

We Kicked England’s Balls

Although the World Cup actually began yesterday somewhere in Africa, the USA team kicked England’s arse in a tie of 1-1. I’ll explain why shortly.

The game supposedly originated when victorious Brits began a game of kicking around the skull of a dispatched Roman soldier Danish prince. Eventually the skull was replaced with an inflated sheep’s bladder (brilliance), and they began kicking that up and down the path between rival villages. The game spread to other villages, and gained the name of “Association Football,” abbreviated to “Assoc.” A participant was termed an “Assoc-er,” thus was the game of Soccer introduced into the English speaking world.

I doubt the previous summary is entirely accurate, but humor me for the attempt at historical improvisation.

Most Americans these days are introduced to Soccer (or Football as the rest of the civilized world calls it) via AYSO, an excellent organization that introduces their kids to the sport and allows parents to yell at each other with impunity over rules they don’t understand. The offsides rule is particularly difficult for us yanks to comprehend because you can’t actually see it unless you are standing right behind the line judge (who is constantly in motion up and down the sidelines) when the foul occurs.

So today, England, the ancestral homeland of the sport, was supposed to have had an easy win over the supposedly inept USA team. It was expected to be a blowout, and with a goal within the first five minutes of play, England led by infinity. However,  in the last few minutes of the first half, the Brit keeper floundered allowing a tie score. He’s on suicide watch now, although it wasn’t entirely his fault as nine of his own teammates blew it before the bladder even reached him.

The USA team should be proud, even at a final score of 1-1. England got their pointy little noses polished. Now we’ll work on their teeth.

Overnight Open Thread? Why not.

Onion:Tom Coughlin Scores 2 Touchdowns In Season-Ending Speech To Giants Defense

As a Giants fan I’m disappointed that they collapsed this year. I saw this on the Onion and decided to post this as an overnight!

Enjoy all!

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Following the Giants’ embarrassing 44-7 loss to the Vikings, 63-year-old head coach Tom Coughlin further manhandled the Giants defense Sunday, scoring two more touchdowns against them during the eight minutes of his season-ending speech. “In the end, Coach [Coughlin] just got the better of us,” said defensive end Justin Tuck, who was later caught flat-footed by several reporters who added another touchdown during Tuck’s postgame press conference. “He exploited our weaknesses, and we just couldn’t stop him. I guess he just wanted it more than we did.” Tuck later blamed a porous Giants defense for allowing play-by-play man Bob Papa and color commentator Carl Banks to score two more touchdowns and a field goal during their postgame remarks.
