It’s Week 8 of the NFL, readers! I was going to choose a picture of our favourite douchewaffle in celebration of his upcoming visit to Lambeau, when I found…this. It’s a couple of weeks old, but hey, you need something to do before donning your Balloon Boy outfit to go pumpkin sacrificing. Happy weekend!

The Awesomosity of Roy Halladay, Part Deux

Good morning. I think my Los Angeles time zone just kicked your ass. And hey, you can stop making fun of my headline now, because I do actually speak French.

You can also stop making fun of it because you’re going to be too in awe of what inspired it to form coherent sentences. Strap your jaw closed so you don’t drool on your keyboard, and read on past this almost totally unrelated photo of Brett Cecil.

A photo of Brett Cecil, because hes unbelievably pretty and I got angry comments about not having enough hot guys in the post once.

For the record, my man-crush is Jacoby Ellsbury.  He’s young (which I’m not), fast (ditto), multi-talented and good-looking.  I guess two out of four ain’t bad!

Yeah, baby!
