This weekend's NFC Championship game features the Minnesota Vikings facing off against the New Orleans Saints. The former's performance was so inspiring in recent weeks, it inspired Mpls legend Prince, who penned a song in their honor called "Purple and Gold." The Fox affiliate in Minneapolis receiv ...

Chad Ochocinco is my new favourite football player. I never used to be a fan of his, disliking the showboating and all the other stuff that goes along with it, but it turns out I was wrong. I turns out, in fact, that I couldn't possibly have been any wronger if I had tried.
If you're not going home for Thanksgiving tomorrow, you have a lot to be thankful for. Go find that perfect holiday dive bar and count your blessings. For the rest of you: Thanksgiving can be an extremely uncomfortable time spent with family and old friends. Here, in no specific order, are ten of th ... More >>
On Thanksgiving Day, the bars will be open. Maybe not the dance clubs, "ultra lounges" or country club-type places, but most every corner bar will be open, and we've all been in one of those. But maybe not on Thanksgiving. However, if you've ever found yourself driving or walking by one on Turkey Da ... More >>
worldtoiletday.comThere was a time, like this morning, when Unreal considered Thanksgiving by far the shittiest holiday in November. To put it delicately, there are certain traditional foods that do not agree with our digestive system. (Plus, time in the crapper means desperately-needed time away ... More >>
Okay, Rams fans, now you should be excited. Two weeks ago, after the Rams beat the Detroit Lions for their first victory in over a year, I played the role of buzzkill, trying to explain why it wasn't all that encouraging the Rams won. Sure, it was nice to finally erase that big ugly zero fro ... More >>
What could possibly be intriguing about the St. Louis Rams vs. Detroit Lions match-up on Sunday -- the game that pits the two worst NFL teams in recent memory against each other? http://www.detroitlions.com/This pre-grame graphic on the Detroit Lions web site seems to promise helmet-smashing footbal ...

Let's face it, folks; it's tough being a St. Louis Rams fan these days. Sure, they took the Jacksonville Jaguars into overtime yesterday before losing, but the Jags aren't exactly the '85 Bears or anything. They're 0-6, the offense is just flat-out awful, the defense is routinely getting beaten u ... More >>
Wikimedia CommonsAs miserable as the past seven days have been in the St. Louis sporting world, local fans can take solace in the fact that it could be a hell of a lot worse.Take Seattle and their unfathomably depressing 2008: the Mariners lost 101 games, the Seahawks went 4-12, the once-proud Un ...

This is not a good year to "double down" on the Rams.Hey, it could be worse. Back in February Las Vegas gave St. Louis a 100-1 chance of winning the 2010 Super Bowl. Apparently, the odds makers like the direction new head coach Steve Spagnuolo is taking team in bumping the chances up to 80-1. Sti ... More >>
Favre tearfully retires from the Packers back in March 2008.In what has become an annual tradition, it now looks as if Brett Favre is once again coming out of retirement. This time, he plans on going to the Minnesota Vikings, largely because he apparently wants to get revenge on the Green Bay Packer ... More >>
Maybe it's because it's Good Friday, or maybe it's because of this week's cover story, or a rerun of Married...With Children we caught the other day (the one where Al sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for taking the Chicago Bears to the Super Bowl) but Unreal has been a bit preoccupied with de ...

This is just too good not to share with the general public. Remember the Chicago Bears "Super Bowl Shuffle" back in 1985? Well, the Bears weren't the only NFL team to create and produce a horrific rap video. Our beloved Los Angeles St. Louis Rams also had a turn. Yes that's Hall-of-Famer Eric Dicker ... More >>
Just wait. News today is that the Lions just signed Scott Linehan to run their awwfense offense. Oh, and statistically the Lions (0-16) could have performed worse in 2008. Last season's team won all four of its pre-season games before going belly-up for the entire regular season. Coach Linehan, ... More >>

'Tis the season to give thanks, you know. And you want to know what I'm thankful for this year? I'm most thankful for Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher and Tyna Robertson. Because this kind of shit is what makes it easy to come up with something to write about every day. See, Mr. Urlacher, who ... More >>
He was hyped by optimistic, shortsighted pundits as the "2008 fantasy football sleeper at wide receiver," now the promising fantasy career of Rams rookie Donnie Avery has officially flamed out. It was a brief, meteoric rise to prominence that lasted just five weeks before ending with a whimper yeste ... More >>
Well, yet another Sunday has passed for the St. Louis Rams, and yet another horrific loss. See, the Rams played the 49ers yesterday. San Francisco, in no uncertain terms, is a crappy football team. Don't get me wrong; the Rams are also a crappy football team, but this was supposed to be their chan ... More >>

Has the NFL gone too far trying to monitor players' off-field antics?

Unreal gets the lowdown on the Dirty Dog, meets plants who love a free lunch and finds a blogger who can't get enough Favre. Plus, Scientology's "volunteer ministers" are bringing relief to hurricane victims -- but not the kind you'd think.
