You're my favorite! (2)

What a crazy week! We’ve got some good stuff for you, this first week of October. After all, we read just about everything that didn’t have to do with the Patriots’ Monday Night shellacking.

Here are some of our favorite football-related online finds of the week…

If you have 5 minutes to kill…

1. Let’s Talk About It – Clearly Derek Jeter doesn’t know the definition of retirement. Two days after his last game, he announced the creation of The Player’s Tribune, a new media platform for athletes. Russell Wilson (Seattle QB) was named a Senior Editor yesterday and subsequently posted this opinion piece on domestic violence. We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of content is to come on The Player’s Tribune.


If you have 10 minutes to kill…

2. Matthew McConaughey Longhorns Pep Talk – Sure, the video clip is only 5 minutes long, but you’re going to need to watch it twice to understand what exactly Mr. McConaughey is trying to tell the Texas Longhorns football team. I felt like I was watching an episode of True Detective, which meant that I didn’t know what was going on at all. The best part might actually be McConaughey’s son looking bored out of his mind. Alright, alright, alright.


If you have 20 minutes to kill…

3. Jim Harbaugh Comfortable in Chaos – Time for you to get to know one of the Harbaugh brothers. (Jim is the head coach of the 49ers. Jim’s older brother, John, is the head coach of the Ravens.) This ESPN profile feature uses a decent amount of football terminology, but the overall focus is on Harbaugh’s personality. I’d probably cry on a regular basis if I worked for the guy, but seems like there’s a method to his madness.


Have you “liked” us on Facebook yet? If not, you should get on that. We bet Tim Tebow would totally approve.
