“After careful consideration, I will need to postpone the taping of the Oprah Winfrey interview scheduled for February 22. I admire and respect Oprah and hope to be able to participate in an interview in the future.”

DAMN! Vick stood up Oprah… Not a good look!

Vick vs. Oprah

Posted: February 14, 2011 by NattieLiz in Fans, NFL

Ohhh its a Doggie Dog World!  This Thursday Oprah will have Philadelphia QB Micheal Vick on her show.  This was something that seemed to be inevitable since Oprah is using her last year on air to hit all most controversial issues. According to Harpo Productions, Oprah will cover every thing from the dogs, to prison, his return to the NFL, and his work with the Humane Society. I hope he knows what he’s getting into, we all know Oprah likes to ease in then GO HARD in the PAINT!  Good luck Vick, Good luck!

Congrats to the Wimmers

Leah Michelle had a bit of a slip up last night at the Grammys.. but at least she had tough guy Clay Matthews to hold it down! Green Bay Packers, Super Bowl Winner, Clay Matthews had quite the night!

Obviously known for his, “Long Hurr, Don’t Curr” Attitude, Matthews got to meet Mr. Dreads himself, Weezy F baby, at the Cash Money Pre- Grammy party. I’d say Matthews is having quite the EPIC week!

In case you missed it, The Packers beat the Steelers in a 31-25 victory at Super Bowl 45!

Aaron Rodgers did an outstanding job! He completed 24-of-39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns to lead Green Bay to their first Super Bowl title in 14 years. So Congrats Cheeseheads!!!…Now, let the 2011 season get underway!

The Cheerless Bowl

Posted: February 4, 2011 by NattieLiz in Fans, Green Bay Packers, NFL

The side lines of this years Super Bowl, against the Steelers and Packers, is going to look a little different. For the first time in more than 40 years no team cheerleaders will be on the side lines during the game. The Packers and the Steelers are 2 of the 6 teams that don’t have professional cheerleaders. I think this is a little known fact, because it seems universal, you have a pro football team, you have pro cheerleaders. NOPE! So with the big game being played in Texas, football heaven, there will be no girls on the sidelines to pump up the crowd… Seems pretty crappy if you ask me.  In Green Bay the team “borrows” the cheer squad of nearby colleges, University of  Wisconsin Green Bay and St. Norbert, for lack of better words, that is super Cheesy!

In case you are interested, the 6 cheerleading-less teams are The New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Cleveland Browns, The Green Bay Packers, and The Pittsburgh Steelers.  At least we can count on The Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders to be out side of the stadium on Sunday preforming… thank God!

Git it Girl!

We’ll Miss you Andy

So if ya’ll haven’t noticed we on this website all have a bit of our own bias & it is what it is. What we all tend to write about is what we are most passionate about & can you really blame us?  You can’t really help what it is that you’re passionate about & for this gal it’s all about the NY.  Today it was announced that the greatest post-season pitcher of all time, Andy Pettitte is going to retire.  There was alot of speculation all throughout the offseason that he would, but nobody knew for sure.  Today it was made official, that Andy would make the announcement tomorrow in a press conference.  It is a major blow to the Yankees because now the pitching rotation is full of question marks.  Yes, CC Sabathia & my main man, Phil Hughes will be good but what about the rest of the 3? AJ Burnett is either amazing or terrible (but always the epitome of cool because his personality is phenom.)  But the 4 & 5 pitchers? Who are they?  It’s going to be a major cause for concern for Yankee fans in the coming year because if things don’t go how we always expect them to, starting pitching will be the the downfall.  But above all else, as much as we will want a new great starting pitcher, we will most of all miss our great lefty big man.  Andy was not only a reliable work horse but, in my opinion, one of the greatest competitors of all time, as well as one of the greatest postseason baseball performers ever & a hall of fame pitcher who will not be replaced any time in the near future.  He was & always will be a true Yankee & a true gentleman & we love you, Andy.

Green & Yellow – The Black & Yellow Comeback

Posted: February 3, 2011 by thesank in Uncategorized

As many of you know, the 2010-2011 season has brought Super Bowl contenders, the Pittsburgh Steelers, to adopt rapper Wiz Khalifa’s popular song Black and Yellow as their unofficial anthem. He was even asked to perform it at the AFC Championship game (click image for full song).

It doesn’t come as a surprise that many people have recreated/remixed the song to fit their own favorite teams (Black & Purple (Ravens Remix), Green & Yellow (Oregon Remix), Blue & Red (Giants Remix), Blue & Orange (Gators Remix), etc.). You can probably find your own team’s remix very easily.

Well in wonderful Super Bowl fashion, Lil’ Wayne has decided to make his own version for the Green Bay Packers –> http://www.hotnewhiphop.com/en/play/s/0552a8a-182054/ 

As part of tha anti-Steelers faithful, I think that even though the thought might be overplayed, this was a wonderful comeback for the Cheeseheads. Lil’ Wayne is one of the best rappers out there, and if anyone can trump Khalifa’s Black & Yellow, it’s Weezy F baby.
