Man Posing as Ref Streaks at UCLA-Arizona Game

Posted by Jo$h on October 21, 2011

Watch the ref that comes from the top of the screen around 0:14. He actually stops the play on the field and tries to get the ball, before taking off and taking off his clothes.

Then after that… a huge brawl between the 2 teams.

Sidenote: UCLA football sucks this season.

CBS Sports- Former NFL Player Chris Henry’s Legacy Lives On (Video)

Posted by Just10 on December 1, 2010

I heard about this story yesterday on ESPN’s Pardon The Interruption. After suffering fatal injuries in a car accident on December 16, 2009, Chris Henry’s organs were donated by his mother. For the first time, the people who received a second chance at life because of Chris Henry, meet his mother just to tell her thank you. It is an extremely touching story that made me cry throughout the video and even had CBS’s Jim Brown crying after the segment. This is a story everyone can relate with and appreciate!

Please Watch!

NFL: Arizona Cardinals Trade Anquan Boldin to Baltimore Ravens

Posted by Just10 on March 5, 2010

For almost two years, wide receiver Anquan Boldin had been asking for a long term contract from the Arizona Cardinals. Today he finally got it, from the Baltimore Ravens. The Cardinals traded Boldin to the Ravens for a third and fourth round pick in this year’s rookie draft. Boldin almost immediately signed a three year, $25 million extension with the Ravens, leaving him with four years and $28 millions on his current contract. Anquan and his tough, physical play will be a great addition to a team with a reputation of having rough, blue collar players at every position.

NFL: Super Bowl XLIV Highlights- Saints 31, Colts 17 (Video)

Posted by Just10 on February 8, 2010

Great game! It was so good to see the Saints deliver a championship to a region that has been devastated by hurricanes, murders, and everything else. It definitely sucks to see Peyton Manning lose but I have no doubt he will be back more than one time before his career ends. But the New Orleans Saints were the team of Destiny. Glad to see destiny fulfilled!

A Familiar Scene: Colts Return to their 2nd Super Bowl in 4 Years (Video)

Posted by Just10 on January 25, 2010

A familiar face has returned to the Super Bowl as the Indianapolis Colts defeated the New York Jets to win the AFC championship. In what seemed to be a very tight game in the first half, the Colts opened things up by scoring 17 unanswered points in the 3rd and 4th periods. Peyton Manning was superb in the game, throwing for 377 yards and 3 touchdowns. On the other side, rookie QB Mark Sanchez played very well throwing for 257 yards, 2 touchdowns and only one interception. Sanchez became just the fourth quarterback to lead his team to the conference title game and lose.

Who Dat??? New Orleans Saints Reach 1st Super Bowl (Video)

Posted by Just10 on January 25, 2010

After a great regular season which almost ended in near perfection, the New Orleans Saints have reached the biggest game in the NFL season. The sad part is that the person on the losing end was Brett Farve. After a last second interception by Farve, the game went into overtime where the Saints kicked a 40 yard game winning field goal. Now the question is, can the Saints finish this great season at the top. And will Brett Farve return for another year? My answers: Yes and No (Put those in any order you like!)

Wow! Cincinnati Bengals WR Chris Henry Dies at 26!

Posted by Just10 on December 17, 2009

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry has died, one day after falling out of the back of a pickup truck in what authorities described as a domestic dispute with his fiancee.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Henry died at 6:36 a.m. Thursday. Henry was 26.

Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a residential road “apparently suffering life-threatening injuries,” according to police. Police said a dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee was driving away from the residence.

Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry “came out of the back of the vehicle.” They wouldn’t identify the woman, and no charges were immediately filed.

“We ask that you keep Chris’ family — especially the young children he leaves behind — in your prayers,” Henry’s agents, Andy Simms and Dave Lee, said in a statement. “It is tragic when a life is taken so young. He was a man just realizing his potential, not just in football, but in life.”

Police spokeswoman Rosalyn Harrington said homicide detectives have been assigned to the case but had no further information. Police have not released the 911 tapes, and Harrington wouldn’t say if the woman was present at the scene when police arrived.

Henry is engaged to Loleini Tonga, and the couple has been raising three children. Tonga’s MySpace page identifies herself as “Mrs. C. Henry” and has a picture of her next to a person who appears to be Henry. She also has a post from Tuesday talking about buying wedding rings. A neighbor said Wednesday that the Tonga family owns the home where police say the incident began. Charlotte is home to his fiancee’s parents.

Henry was away from the team after breaking his left forearm during a win over Baltimore on Nov. 8. He had surgery and was placed on season-ending injured reserve following the game.

Throughout his career, his temper and poor decisions got him in trouble.

He was ejected from a game and suspended for another at West Virginia, where former coach Rich Rodriguez told Henry that he was an embarrassment to himself and the program. His reputation was already costing him — the Bengals were the only NFL team to bring him in for a pre-draft visit in 2005.

They found that his demeanor didn’t match his reputation. Henry was shy and spoke in a quiet voice. They warned him that he had to stay in control if he was going to stay in the NFL. Then, they picked him in the third round.

In a sense, it was already a second chance.

“I’m worth the chance,” Henry said, when he showed up the following weekend for a rookie minicamp. “I’m just happy they took me.”

Henry become a vital part of the offense as a rookie, helping the Bengals reach the playoffs in 2005 with his ability to run past defenders to grab long passes. In the final month of the season, he also showed his other side, getting arrested for marijuana possession. After a playoff loss to Pittsburgh, he was arrested on a gun charge in Florida.

Henry and former Tennessee cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones became the league’s two most trouble-bound players. Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended both in 2007 — Jones for a full season, Henry for half of it — as part of a toughening of the league’s conduct policy.

When Henry was arrested for a fifth time following that season on an assault charge, the Bengals decided they’d had enough. At his arraignment on April 3, 2008, Municipal Court Judge Bernie Bouchard called Henry “a one-man crime wave.” He was released by the Bengals the same day.

It was a jolt to Henry, who had dreamed of an NFL career since high school, when he got the NFL logo tattooed on the back of his right hand. No team showed an interest in bringing him back. His career seemed finished.

Then, Bengals owner Mike Brown — who refers to himself as “a redeemer” — changed his mind and gave him another chance.

“If you only knew him by hearsay, you’d think he’s some kind of ogre,” Brown said, during the Bengals’ appearance on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” series this summer. “It’s not true. He’s a good person. When you see him up close, you’ll find that you’ll like him. He’ll be a soft-spoken, pleasant person.”

This time, Henry seemed determined to stay out of trouble. After only 19 catches and two touchdowns in 12 games in the 2008 season, he set about making himself a top-flight receiver again. He got into top shape and worked out with teammates in the offseason, showing more resolve than at any point in his career.

“For those who knew Chris, he was nothing like his public perception,” read his agents’ statement. “A loving and caring individual, he was thankful for what he had in life, and proud of what he had overcome.

“Nobody worked harder to rehabilitate his image than Chris. He realized he made mistakes and made positive changes to his life. As a result of these changes, he had become a man that all Bengals, and [the] NFL, fans could be proud of.”

Henry indeed changed his personal life, spending more time with his fiancee and the children they are raising. Teammates noticed a pronounced change in his demeanor.

“He’s a great kid with a great heart,” quarterback Carson Palmer said as training camp started. “He’s changed his life around. He ran into some trouble, made some bad decisions, and realized that. He’s sorry for them, apologized for them, and has done everything he can to make himself a better person. I’m just proud of him.”

Before the 2009 season, Henry got a new tattoo that matched his new outlook. Below his left ear, in flowing one-inch script, was the world “Blessed.”

“I kind of felt like I dug myself out of the hole and started doing the right things,” Henry said in an interview with The Associated Press as training camp opened. “People say, ‘How you feeling now Chris? You doing all right?’ I just tell them I’m blessed. That’s why I got it.”

He caught a touchdown pass in each of Cincinnati’s four preseason games. A thigh injury slowed him early in the season, and he had 12 catches for 236 yards — his 19.7-yard average per catch leads the team — when he broke his left arm during a win over Baltimore on Nov. 22, ending his season.

When he showed up in the locker room for the first time since surgery to fix the fracture, Henry sounded confident he could get through the latest setback.

“It just comes with time, you know?” he said. “I learned to handle all situations, so I’ll be all right.”

The Bengals (9-4), in the midst of their best season since winning 11 games in 2005, lead the AFC North. They visit the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
