Jake Long's Jack Nicholson impersonation needs work

Throwing Into Traffic compiled a bunch of pictures of goofy looking white people at the NFL combine. Fortunately, there's a bunch of them. Unfortunately, I can't identify most of them, and am too lazy to do research.

Oh wait, here's former Boston College QB Matt Ryan, who apparently learned nothing from Band of Brothers....

Yeah, sometimes I try to do too much. Fortunately some of these are a lot more simple.

The Yankees have a special guest for Spring Training... Darkman

Just imagine, while this practice was going on, the real A-Rod was tied up in a room somewhere. Probably with a muscular she-male type.

(If this was too vague, and I have a feeling it was, go to the 4:15 mark)

Finally, the mystery is solved

It's over now, walrus... it's all over.

Jon Barry is susceptible to the rear naked choke

The Washington Nationals have a new toy

Ten bucks says that Teddy Roosevelt wrecks this thing at some point during the season.

Roger Clemens could have used Andy Pettitte's wife in his deposition

(Thanks to Raskolnikov for the image... if anybody knows how to make an animated gif where her eyes do this, that would be awesome....)

The best performance in a Superman T-shirt since Chunk Data Mouth Ma Fratelli Sloth in Goonies

I don't give a damn if it wasn't really a dunk... when you bring a Superman cape to a dunk contest, you automatically win.

Among the other dunks I enjoyed, Gerald Green with a dunk after Mark Mangino's own heart... attack....

My biggest pet peeve is toe socks. But green socks come pretty damn close to being second. When I saw Orlando Bloom wearing green socks in Elizabethtown. all of a sudden I didn't mind that his character wanted to kill himself.

Remember the lowest-rated player in Madden '07? He's in the Pro Bowl this year

Congratulations to Ethan Albright, who overcame the worst rating in Madden '07 to make it to Hawaii this year. Unfortunately, his awareness rating is still 59, so he thinks he's in the Super Bowl.

By the way, one year later, and this fake letter from Albright to EA Sports is still hilarious.

In other news, I'm still not watching the Pro Bowl.

Remember that show Silk Stalkings? This is nothing like that

I got a kick out of this year's Super Bowl coverage by The Sporting Blog, in particular Chris Mottram's "I'm a Stalker" series. It's like a ridiculously easy version of Where's Waldo.

Too vague?
