Yes, I’m a bit bitter that the Terps aren’t playing this week-as I can certainly use the Twitter bump that comes along with them taking the field. (Seriously.)

As Deadspin pointed out Tuesday morning-the uniforms were puzzling, but the decision to put Regis Philbin’s picture on the play chart….I….I just….I just have no idea….


3. Mixed Martial Arts: Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix-Josh Barnett vs. Sergei Kharitonov/Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Daniel Cormier (Saturday 10pm from Cincinnati, OH live on Showtime); “Warrior” opens in theaters (Friday); Bellator Fighting Championships 49 (Saturday 9pm from Atlantic City live on MTV2)

Tell me this doesn’t look epic…

Holy hell I’m going to see this Friday night. No excuses.

PLUS…Kurt Angle is in this flick. He once beat John Cena in a rap battle!!!!!!
