He’s been jeered about his gigantic helmet, being compared to Dark Helmet from Spaceballs and Kazoo from The Flintstones. He’s been ridiculed about his on-the-field demeanor in the viral “Aw Shucks” nickname. He’s been labelled borderline retarded due to his faces, running ability, and decision-making. But that wasn’t enough for me. So I introduce to you my pictorial dedication to Eli Manning.
I have a soft, bloody spot in my heart for zombies. From the days of Lucio Fulci to when Romero was at his best to AMC’s The Walking Dead, zombie stories continue to excite me. Maybe I’m a sucker for the end of the world, or critical of the zombification of the world as we know it now, but I stand by my zombie love. When I saw the previews for the zombie RPG Dead Island, I immediately had to have it. So here I am, writing not a review, but a journal log of my time on Dead Island. This is Day 1. Enjoy.
Welcome back, football fans, to our quasi-professional football picks! Each week we will pick game winners based on Vegas over/under lines, and add some sharp commentary to the games.

New York City–Having been kicked out of various parks, bridges, and underpasses across New York City, the two-month-old Occupy Wall Street movement has decided to select a new location for their efforts: Macy’s Herald Square.
Los Angeles, CA: Many actors and actresses engulf themselves in their characters in order to bring a certain base of believability that the audience can start from in film or television. Adrien Brody practiced the piano 4 hours a day and sold all of his possessions for The Pianist. Al Pacino pulled over truck drivers to prepare himself for Serpico. Keanu Reeves became a burnt-out air guitar-playing pop culture teenager for Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and never looked back. Recently, Ashton Kutcher began his own method of character-acting in order to replace Charlie Sheen in the television series, Two and a Half Men.
Beyond the obvious greatness of these two NFL stars, when one digs beneath the surface you realize just how similar these two great QB’s are. The differences are few but the similarities are many and indeed impressive:
New York, NY: With the release of PEOPLE Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” cover, there seemed to be little conflict with the choice of Bradley Cooper. Handsome, successful, popular, the star of the “Hangover” movies seemed an easy choice for the general public. Unfortunately, not everyone agreed, as an overwhelming amount of Clint Howard fans took to social networking sites after Wednesday’s announcement.
Welcome back, football fans, to our quasi-professional football picks! Each week we will pick game winners based on Vegas over/under lines, and add some sharp commentary to the games. Our analyst from across the pond has taken the lead! Let’s see if our British bookie-setter can maintain it while still being unable to watch a whole game.
Denver, CO: The professional football life of Tim Tebow has not been an easy one. Everyone, including towel boys, can throw better than him. His stats are running back-option worthy. His rookie contract only garnered $9.7 million over 5 years. He has been ridiculed by fans and players for his religious tendencies, both on and off the field.

I’m here to spread the words of Jesus, and to that end I think I’ve been pretty successful,” explained Tebow.
