Bengals Fan Gets The Last Laugh

Courtesy by NFL.com
Remember the female Cincinnati Bengals fan who had a game ball snatched away from her by an ornery New Orleans Saints fan in the Superdome? You know, the one who seemingly got elbowed by an old man as he wrestled away a pass from tight end Jermaine Gresham aimed at the only Bengals fan in the vicinity of his touchdown?
Well, she got the last laugh on "NFL AM."
"I think I first just said, 'Seriously?'" said Christa Barrett, the displaced Bengals fan who moved from Cincy to New Orleans this past summer, "because I was just so surprised. Afterwards, the video of me pleading for the ball was basically just me and my sister asking, 'Hey, can we just get a picture with it?' My sister told him, 'I'm a good Christian woman. I won't steal your ball. I promise.'"
Tony Williams, 70, expressed "zero remorse" for not letting the two women near the ball when interviewed by the CBS crew, but a Saints employee delivered them another pigskin later in the game. Barrett's Bengals, of course, went on to win, 27-10, and afterward Gresham reached out to Christa's sister on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Williams is sticking to his story in an interview with WGNO-TV, likening his tussle with Barrett to battling for beads at Mardi Gras. There's a joke in there somewhere about wrestling women for beads.
"When it comes our way, we jockey for the ball," Williams told the local TV station. "That's it. She was pleading for me to give her the ball, and I said, 'No, ma'am, I'm keeping the ball.'"
The man's wife even backed her husband's actions. "It’s a free for all, something like with Mardi Gras," she said. "When a coconut is tossed or beads are tossed everybody goes for it."
And in my day, we didn't have footballs. We had coconuts. That's the way it was and we liked it.
In the end, Barrett said she "feels terrible for the guy," and hopes the backlash isn't too bad for Williams.

Texans cant Clip the Eagles: Another Loss

courtesy of  Houston Chronicle
More than five years after winning his first start at what is now called NRG Stadium, Mark Sanchez returned to Houston on Sunday as a comeback quarterback, coming off the bench to throw for 202 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles 31-21 win over the Texans.
Houston’s defense knocked out Philadelphia starter Nick Foles with a shoulder injury on the last play of the first quarter, but Sanchez kept coach Chip Kelly’s attack running at maximum efficiency against a Texans secondary that played without two starters and a front seven that at times was slowed by the Eagles’ quick pace to a hands-on-hips crawl.
With the Cowboys’ loss Sunday to the Cardinals, the Eagles at 6-2 hold a half-game lead over Dallas for first place in the NFC East. The Texans, after winning three of their first four, are 4-5 entering their bye week
“We really believe that we are close,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “We’re still certainly not out of anything. It’s a disappointed locker room, but we have a lot of games left. We need to figure out what type of spark we need.”

Meaning of A Name

With a real name like Amethyst Amelia Kelly, it's hardly surprising that the Australian rapper decided to pick up a stage name. So how did she arrive at Iggy Azalea? When her dog Iggy, named after rocker Iggy Pop, survived a run-in with a snake, Azalea had a name-plate necklace made in his honor. 

"Everybody started to think that my name was Iggy, so … I took it on board and started rapping with it," she said. Soon after, her grandfather suggested she shouldn't have a one-word stage name and the "Fancy" singer added "Azalea", "because that is a street name that my mom and family live on … it sounds very feminine and I thought it would balance out 'Iggy' being so masculine."

TPain performs w/Out Auto-Tune and Its DOPE ((VIDEO))

T-Pain's fingerprints are all over pop and R&B and hip-hop. He wasn't the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument — he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers "Deep" well — but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.

But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. "People felt like I was using it to sound good," says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. "But I was just using it to sound different.”

He just turned 30, but T-Pain has already done enough to drop a greatest hits album next week. We asked him if he'd grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what's really made his career: his voice, and those songs.--FRANNIE KELLEY

Mega Watt: 80 Yards of Wattage

 On Sunday, Texans defensive lineman JJ "Mega" Watt showed why he is considered to be one of the league's biggest defensive game-changers 
As the Buffalo Bills took the their 10-7 lead early in the third quarter, Watt shifted the momentum up and made a big defensive play to give the Texans a 14-10 lead. Watt picked off  a Manuel pass and took it 80 yards for the BIG  touchdown. See the tweets of the Houston Texans below....

Celebrity Sparker- LFDF ((AUDIO))

One of the refreshing moments in today's music, is listening to a track that is SUPER DOPE. A few days ago I opened my email to a track called "Live Fresh Die Fly" by Celebrity Sparker of Dublyfe.

Representing Acres Homes, this track DOES not and I repeat DOES NOT sound like a typical Houston track with the traditional Slow Bang sound that is so legendary here in H-Town, and that's not a bad thing.

With the melodic vocals and southern trap sound, it will definitely be a banger for the 2nd quarter. Dont believe me, take a listen below.....


Texans Recap on Loss Against the Giants

 & www.HoustonTexans.com

It was a particularly tough day at the office for Ryan Fitzpatrick. The quarterback was picked off three times and sacked twice in the 30-17 loss to the Giants. But according to his head coach, Fitzpatrick shared in the blame with his 52 teammates and the coaching staff.
“We’ve got to coach better,” Bill O’Brien said. “We’ve got to play better around him. He’s got to make better decisions. He knows that. It was a team loss.”

Fitzpatrick and the offense faced third down nine times in the first three quarters. They were unable to convert a single one. That was a frustrating aspect of the game for Fitzpatrick, and despite what O’Brien said, he still was hard on himself after the loss.

"We're not going to win any games if we play like that," Fitzpatrick said. "Especially with the turnovers. Sometimes interceptions happen, but it was poor play by me."

Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-34 pass attempts for 289 yards. He said he plans on going back to work Monday morning in Houston and correcting some mistakes.One of his favorite targets in wide receiver Andre Johnson quickly dismissed the idea that the defeat was Fitzpatrick’s fault.

“It’s not just him,” Johnson said. “It’s everybody. One thing about football: one guy can’t go out and hit three home runs and go out and score 80 points.”  

At 2-1, the Texans return home to NRG Stadium for a Week 4 matchup with the 2-1 Bills.
“It’s one game,” Johnson said. “We’ll fix it. We got 13 more to play. We’ll come in tomorrow, look at what’s going on, get it fixed, work on it in practice and get ready for Buffalo.”
Johnson finished with four catches for 24 yards against the Giants.

Ad Sparks Boycott of the NFL

As one of the official sponsors of the NFL, CoverGirl created football-inspired makeup looks for every team, advertised with the slogan “Get Your Game Face On.” This weekend, the purple smoky eye inspired by the Baltimore Ravens got an unfortunate makeover. In the wake of the video revealing the team’s running back Ray Rice violently abusing his then-fiance, an airbrushed version showing the CoverGirl model with a now black and blue eye has gone viral. On top of its visual impact, it takes to task the poor way in which the NFL, and more specifically commissioner Roger Goodell, has addressed the issue of domestic violence. After thousands of tweets and Facebook shares this weekend, the image has been changed by journalist Adele Stanwith a new campaign message written across the top: “Boycott CoverGirl Official Sponsor of the NFL" until Roger Goodell is gone.” Trending hashtags this weekend included #GoodellMustGo and #BoycotttheNFL. 

JJ Watt on Offense?: Weekend Recap

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Texans defensive end J.J. Watt can do it all.
Turns out, not just on defense.
The Texans took an early lead over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday with a one-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a wide-open Watt. It was Watt's first professional offensive touchdown.
"My goal in the offseason is to create the best athlete I can create and give it to the coaches and say here, use it how you want," Watt said. "... Today they used it a little bit on offense."
The NFL's highest-paid defensive player made the play one week after one of the best games of his career. In Week 1, Watt notched a sack, batted pass, two tackles for loss, a fumble recovery and a blocked extra point.
In the Week 2 win over the Raiders, he lined up twice on the goal line on offense, once to block for running backArian Foster and once to catch the game's first touchdown.
"We've been working on that for a while," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "You've got a guy there who's such a great athlete, 6-foot-7, 290 pounds, got really good hands. You should probably try to get him in there once in a while on offense."
Watt, who initially played tight end in college, hasn't scored a touchdown on an offensive play since his senior year of high school when he played offense and defense.
It wasn't the first time Watt's worked in a goal-line package in practice. The Texans' previous coaching staff, though, never used it in a game, so Watt stopped lobbying to play offense upon their departure.
Their current coaching staff, though, has some experience using a talented defensive player in on goal line plays. Houston's linebackers coach is Mike Vrabel, a former All Pro linebacker. While with the New England Patriots and then Kansas City Chiefs, Vrabel caught 10 passes - all of them for touchdowns.
"He's one that definitely suggested these things to us throughout the offseason," O'Brien said of Vrabel.
Watt, too, got some tips from Vrabel.
"It was a cool experience," Watt said. "I feel like a little kid."

The Bite Heard Around The World: Weekend Recap

LAS VEGAS (CBS/AP) — Floyd Mayweather Jr. refused to allow Marcos Maidana to turn their rematch into a brawl, boxing masterfully to win a 12-round unanimous decision Saturday night in their welterweight title fight.

Mayweather remained unbeaten in 47 pro fights, drawing upon his 18 years of experience and frustrating Maidana the entire night. The fight was a marked contrast to their first bout in May, when Maidana roughed Mayweather up in a close fight.

Two ringside judges scored it 116-111 for Mayweather, while the third had it 115-112. The Associated Press had it 117-110.

“I felt sharper in the first fight, my rhythm was off,” Mayweather said. “I got hit with some shots tonight I shouldn’t have gotten hit with. But that comes with the sport.”

The fight was held up momentarily in the eighth round when Mayweather complained that Maidana bit him on the wrist while the two were tied up. Maidana was penalized for tripping Mayweather in the 10th round.

Mayweather complained long after the first fight in May that Maidana was a dirty fighter, and complained even more when Maidana seemed to try to hit him below the belt in a clinch in the eighth round, then apparently tried to bite him.

Mayweather immediately jumped back and gestured to referee Kenny Bayless that Maidana bit him on the wrist. He went to his corner and showed Bayless where the bite was, then went over to the Showtime announcers table to complain.

“He bit me!” Mayweather yelled.

Maidana would later be penalized a point for tackling Mayweather as he tried desperately to find something that would work against the undefeated champion.
By the end of the ninth round, though, Maidana was so out of sorts he went to the wrong corner when the bell rang.

“I thought I won the fight,” Maidana said.

Maidana didn’t win it because he spent many of the early rounds trying to figure out a way to get inside like he did the first fight in May. Mayweather kept him at a distance, circling around and landing left jabs and hooks, then scampering out of the way before Maidana could respond.
