Bradying, Wes Welker's Butterfingers, and Eli Manning's Mullet: BR5 2/8/12
Welcome to BR5—your source for sports and pop culture news.
Today’s episode of BR5 gets you up to date on everything from butterfingers in Beantown and a confused blonde.
A Bittersweet gesture in Boston. Eight thousand Butterfingers covered Boston’s Copley Square with a sign reading “Thank you Wes Welker,” mocking the Patriots’ wideout for dropping what could have been a game-winning catch in the Super Bowl. The mean...if hilarious stunt is part of a promotional campaign by an online pawn shop called Pawngo, which invited locals to stop and take a picture, grab a bar and have a laugh. We bet there are at least a few locals who won’t be laughing.
Kobe Bryant is having a pretty good week. First he passed his former teammate / rival Shaquille O’Neal for fifth on the NBA All-time scoring list. and now Larry Bird says Kobe’s the one guy out of all active players Larry Legend would want as a teammate. Bird says: “if you want to have fun...play with LeBron, but if you want to win and win and win, it's Kobe.” So to paraphrase Bird, LeBron’s the one you date, but Kobe’s the one you marry.
Tebowing is out, could Bradying be in? Sports fans can be so cruel. Soon after the Super Bowl ended, Fans on Facebook and our very own Bleacher Report have been sending in their interpretation of Tom Brady’s crestfallen pose upon realizing he’d lost another Super Bowl. And now according to Yahoo! Sports, it’s the craze sweeping the nation for at least the next 48 hours.
Two time Super Bowl MVP, almost 5000 yards passing, 29 TDs and one hell of a mullet. While Eli Manning has been the toast of NY since taking down the Pats in the Super Bowl, it seems he still hasn't gotten the full respect of at least one teammate. Punter Steve Weatherford tweeted this photo en route to the Super Bowl celebration at the Meadowlands, saying "Only a Super Bowl MVP can rock a mullet like this.." Ouch...what does this guy have to do to catch a compliment once in a while? Eli now joins the hallowed ground of football players who rocked the business up front, party in the back look, looks like Eli is now truly Elite.
Time for our Epic Fail. This young lady is a really bad representative of Giants fans and blondes.
She seems like she’s all into the Giants, she’s at the Super Bowl parade in New York, she’s got her T-shirt on and her friend hoisted up on her shoulders, she’s even got the eye-black. But when this reporter asks her a very reasonable question...which player are you waiting to see?
