In continuing their not-so youth movement...the New York Jets signed 39yo quaterback Mark Brunell to a 2 year deal. Jets representatives confirmed to T3I that Brunell beat out Steve Beurelein, Doug Flutie, Stan Humphries, and Sammy Baugh for the backup position.
Some quick thoughts on this one
* I was shocked about halfway through the NFL season last year to learn that Mark was a backup in New Orleans. Honestly, I thought he had been out of the league for at least 5 years. Another sign I'm the one getting old.
* Bad real-estate deals have left him $25 million in the hole. Mark, when it comes to the world of real estate, we've got two words for you, "Rice brothers."

Our boy The Russianator is making it official this weekend. On Saturday he is getting married to his beautiful bride who, for the record, is way out of his league. We're still trying to figure out how the hell he pulled this one off.
Anyways, I know how busy he's been these last few days so we're offering up the T3I Wedding Planning Service to help make their big day a success.
* Who doesn't want Chewbacca on top of their wedding cake?
* Attention Chevy-loving bachelors, you are needed on the dance floor.
* Damn, the groom is going to look really good on Saturday.
* And for the future Mrs. Russianator
Want a reception that won't be soon forgotten? Just add some Jack Stevens:

So if I'm going to try not to bore my golf buddies with tales of woe on the course, I'm not going to expend any energy trying to string sentences together to entertain the four people who read this site.
The same can be said for writing about the PGA tour. I watch a decent amount of golf and frankly, it's hard to crack jokes about a guy hitting a 6 iron to 3 feet for a birdie. Again, you don't care - and if you do care, you watched the damn tournament.
However, every so often (Tiger Woods whore-a-poolza aside) the world of golf gives us some interesting stuff. This year, it's the British Open, which is making some fun news even before it started. John Daly got it going by stealing Cosmo Kramer's technicolor dream coat and wearing it the Champions Dinner - see if you can spot Big John in the photo.
And on the course, something almost as odd is happening. KJ Choi, who is a good player (currently 43rd in the world) seems to have gone a little crazy and is putting croquet-style. It's really bizarre - check it out for yourself:
Now, as someone that is a decent ball striker and terrible putter (sorry, my bad, have you seen the rack on the cart girl? She's got a huge set) I am now FASCINATED to see if Choi can make this work, in major no less. If he does, something tells me that putter he's using will be a hot commodity. I can safely say we'll never say the same for Daly's jacket.
Thanks to Kegs-n-Eggs for the link to the Choi video.
There's something about beating up on Boston College that we hold dearly to our hearts here at T3I. All three idiots were in attendance in Chowderland for the last encounter with the soon to be ACC-bound traitors from New England. Good times were had by all that weekend, except for the poor "Superfans" that had to sit next to us.
Circle your calendars kids, because on November 27th the hated Eagles return to the Carrier Dome.
As Yankee fans are well aware, beating up on Boston is nothing new. This week's Ebay Item of the Week is a nice keepsake commemorating the Orangemen's 1967 victory over Boston College.
Meanwhile, let's take a look back at one of the greatest individual performances (and T3I roadtrips) in college football history.

To say ESPN has "jumped the shark" is an understatement. However, we're not ones to point out a problem without offering some programming solutions.
1. After the debacle that was the Stu Scott Poetry Jam, we suggest trading him to the Weather Channel for Jim Cantore. After all, Stu has some experience:
"Boo-yah.....we've got some bad weather."
2. "30 for 30: Who Killed G.L.O.W.?"
3. Four words, "Bring back Roy Firestone."
4. The Bachelor: Howie Schwab Edition
While he will always be remembered for his burning desire to win and willingness to spend whatever it took to make it happen, we also remember him for his memorable appearances - both real and imagined on Seinfeld. Like this one:
Larry David is the obvious choice to give the eulogy - I can see it now, the Boss always loved mushroom calzones:
And no one sang Pat Benatar quite like Larry David/Big Stein:
And we would be remiss if we failed to mention Steinbrenner's love/hate relationship with Billy Martin and a cavalcade of other managers:
RIP George, you will be missed. At least we've still got Larry David:

We probably won't watch any games this weekend; I've got a nice little Saturday planned for us.

When the rare opportunity to grab a ball hit into the stands presented itself, he was too busy flapping his gums to notice and as a result took a ball right in face (insert your own oral sex joke here).
The lesson - being "that guy" who talks loudly on your cell phone at a game is never a good idea. At least it provides the 99% of us who get annoyed at this some long overdue justice. Enjoy the video.
