Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski Play ‘Mortal Kombat X’

Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski are in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but managed to have some videogame fun. Some pretty vulgar language here.

Lynch doesn’t like to speak at press conferences. Based on this meeting with Conan O’Brien, I sort of realize he doesn’t want to say anything at press conferences because if he does, he’ll get in trouble. However, I do like how he walks out in disgust after the disembowlment.

Also I will never play this game because of the result of the women’s battle.

Deflategate: An analysis by Shaq

So, Shaquille O’Neal and the folks over at the NBA on TNT wondered what would happen if there was an advantage to using a deflated basketball for free throws, given that the New England Patriots were do successful using deflated footballs:

So as Shaq proves, it doesn’t matter if a ball is deflated, he can’t hit free throws anyway.

I figure there’s cheating in all professional sports, but either New England does it more, or it’s worse at hiding its cheating. I tried to think back to the Patriots cheat I first remembered. It had to be this:

The 1982 Snow Plow game against the Miami Dolphins. Long before Belichick and Brady. If you go over to NFL.com (click this link) you’ll see that Don Shula is still pissed off about that one.

Meanwhile the Oakland Raiders are piss off over this:

Ah, yes! The “Tuck Rule.”

But honestly, wasn’t Eric Allen cheating by hanging out on the sideline and listening to the play call?

Ted-DY, Ted-DY, Ted-DY

Teddy Bridgewater had a great day in his first start as the Minnesota Viking’s quarterback:

Teddy Bridgewater passed for 317 yards and a key two-point conversion before leaving with an ankle injury, and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Atlanta Falcons 41-28 on Sunday.

The rookie was 19 for 30 with no turnovers and ran five times for 27 yards and a score in his first career start.

He hurt his ankle late in the game, but tests were negative and he looks good to go Thursday, when the Vikings meet the Green Bay Packers.

I will be tuned into CBS.
