Help Vote Our Boy into the Super Bowl

Super Bowl XLVII is just around the corner, which can only mean one thing: a new set of commercials to watch.  Doritos has a stranglehold on some of the most popular Super Bowl commercials, beginning fifteen years ago with this one, which launched the career of now-famous supermodel Ali Landry.  Getting a little creative, Doritos started a contest to allow amateurs to create their own videos that have a chance to air, awarding the most popular video a Super Bowl slot.  You may remember this one from last year.  Proving, once again, that you can never go wrong if you stick a dog in your commercial. 

This year, a friend of WhereToWatch is starring in one of the videos, and we need you to help vote it in.  There’s only four other videos, so it has a decent chance of being selected.  In the video, our buddy gets slapped in the balls by an old blind guy, so it’s worth a look.  It’s a win-win, you get to help choose a Super Bowl commercial, and fifteen million other people get to see our boy take a nut shot.  Do us a favor and vote for the video labled “Express Checkout” here.  A little inside info, he apparently had to shoot over forty takes on the video so, yes, he was wearing a cup.  I was wondering why it looked like he had a bulge in his pants for once….

LeBron, D-Wade, Bosh and the Heat Party ’til the Break of Dawn at Miami’s Hottest Club

Last night, LeBron & Co. celebrated their NBA championship at the hottest club in Miami (and maybe the world), LIV nightclub at the Fountainebleau Hotel. Let me tell you, that place is pretty awesome. I can only imagine how crazy it was with LeBron popping $75,000 bottles of champagne (Ace of Spades) and rapping with LMFAO. Just driving the streets of Miami after the game was wild. For some reason, Miamians like to beat pots and pans while riding up and down Biscayne Boulevard in the back of trucks. It actually reminds me a little of my days living in Kentucky–minus the ocean view of course. Anyway, check out the party at LIV that lasted until about 6:00 AM this morning.

Kevin Durant and James Harden take Supermodel Kate Upton to Work (Video)

What happens when two NBA players take a supermodel to work? Not exactly what you’d think. I mean, let the girl get a couple of J’s in, it’s not like she’s in the way.

Durant and Harden do a great job of staying in character the entire time. I’m sure it’s not easy acting annoyed by a supermodel. Then again, you know what they say, you show me a hot girl and I’ll show you a guy tired of listening to her….

P.S. – What a great attitude by Kate Upton. That chick is hilarious.

Is SwiftBow Happening? Taylor Swift and Tim Tebow May Be Getting Cozy

In the spirit and fun of celebrity gossip with a sports twist, this new bit of news–if actually true–may be as big as Giselle and Tom Brady were back in the day when they first went public. Rumor has it that Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift have been talking lately. They were spotted getting pretty close at a pre-Oscars party this weekend. I don’t know about you guys, but I am all about this couple moving forward into the full on dating phase!

Tim Tebow and Taylor Swift would be one of the more "likeable" athlete / celebrity couples that we have seen in a long time.

Following the likes of several celeb/athlete couples (or “athlebrities” as I call them), this may be the best pairing in a while. Both are pretty conservative and even through all the fame and rise to superstardom, they both seem to have their feet firmly planted in the ground. More importantly, both are amazing role models for teens and pre-teens and it would be a great message to impressionable kids about what type of celebs and athletes are truly attractive inside and out. Both Tebow and Swift would be winners in this scenario.

Not to mention athlebrity pairings are so fun to follow! Who can forget the love triangle between Tom Brady, Giselle, and Bridgette Moynahan? Some of my other fave couples (in no particular order): Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly, David Beckham and Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice), Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union, Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian and basically any other semi-good-looking athlete…

Worst case scenario, at least we get to make up cool couple nicknames – SwiftBow, Swebow, Telor – and even if they break up we’ll also hear some really awesome new man-bashing songs from Taylor!

Best Sports Quotes of the Week

This was a pretty good week in sports quotes.  It’s the week after Super Bowl and also college basketball’s Rivalry Week, which always brings some good stuff.  Here are some of the best quotes of the week:

- After several passes were dropped by New England’s receivers in the final quarter of the Super Bowl, Tom Brady’s supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen was recorded saying “My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.”

- Shortly after hearing about Gisele’s comments, New York Giants’ Running Back Brandon Jacobs (who played for the other team, mind you), said Gisele needs to “be cute and shut up.”

- Kentucky Basketball Coach John Calipari turned 53 today.  When asked about it, Calipari told the reporters, “Well, two years were vacated, so I’m really turning 51.” Referring to, of course, the 1996 (UMass)[1] and the 2008 (Memphis)[2] seasons which were recently vacated by the NCAA.

- Larry Bird, Hall of Fame Celtic and current President of Basketball Operations for the Indiana Pacers, was asked which current NBA player he would have liked to play with most.  In choosing between Kobe and Lebron, he said, “if you want to win, and win, and win, it’s Kobe.” 

- When LeBron was told Bird’s statements, James said, “I’m an easy target — let’s say that. When someone wants to get a point across, just throw LeBron’s name in there. If you’re watching cartoons with your kids and you don’t like it you say, ‘Blame it on LeBron.’ If you go to the grocery store and they don’t have the milk that you like you say, ‘It’s LeBron’s fault. I’m an easy target and I understand that. It doesn’t get to me at all.”[3]

- In other LeBron quotes, after Blake Griffin threw down a monsterous dunk over Oklahoma Thunder Forward Kendrick Perkins, LeBron gave Griffin props and tweeted, “Dunk of the Year! @blakegriffin just dunked on Kendrick Perkins so hard!!! Wow! I guess I’m No. 2 now. Move over #6.”

- In response, Perkins said “You don’t see Kobe [Bryant] tweeting … You don’t see Michael Jordan tweeting. If you’re an elite player, plays like that don’t excite you. At the end of the day, the guys who are playing for the right reasons who are trying to win championships are not worrying about one play.  They also are not tweeting about themselves talking about going down to No. 2. I just feel [James] is always looking for attention and he wants the world to like him.”

The Heat and Thunder face off on March 25th. 

[1] UMass’s 1996 season where they reached the Final Four was vacated because Marcus Camby allegedly took $28,000 from sports agents. 

[2] Memphis’s 2008 season where they reached the National Championship game was vacated due to allegations regarding Derrick Rose’s SAT. Rose still denies any wrongdoing. 

[3] In fairness, both Bird’s and LeBron’s statements were probably blown out of proportion by the media since, just before Bird’s selection of Kobe, he said “LeBron is by far our best player in this league. I don’t really think there’s anyone next to him.”  Then, just before choosing Kobe, Bird prefaced it with, “It would have probably been more fun to play with LeBron….” When LeBron responded to Bird’s comments, he was not informed that Bird said he was the best player in the league.
