The Hidden Comedy – The League

TheLeague1

Fantasy Football is at the core of The League, a comedy that explores how the online sports obsession affects marriages, friendships, families, and completely shuts down Sundays. The comedy will be partially improvised, with the team from Curb Your Enthusiasm behind it.

TheLeague2

I am very surprised I didn’t see or hear about this show before, its running on its fourth season, and if you like anything about American Football then you have to watch this show. Honestly if you know even a little bit about sports, you have to watch this show, these guys are so ridiculous and over the top competitive then you can’t help but laugh your head off. I finished season 1 in two days, and probably season 2 in couple more, when ever I feel like a light comedy with a bunch of guys this is it. If you haven’t seen it then you are miss out because these guys are nuts about football. They do some crazy funny shit!

Lingerie Football League – September Kickoff

The Lingerie Football League kicks off its season this Friday, so we thought we would give you a little preview.The concept originated in 2004 with a Super Bowl halftime alternative special called the Lingerie Bowl. In the past I believe the Bowl was a bit of a joke, featuring models who really couldn’t play football. However this season all that has changed. While the women are certainly beautiful, and they still wear lingerie, now they can play too. This fall, ten LFL inaugural season teams will compete in a twenty week season with games being played at major arenas and stadiums. The weekly broadcast will be shot in high-definition and will be available via cable television as well as online streaming.

When this first came out a few years back it was just a half-time show in the superbowl and they had one game last year. And now for the first time they turned it into a full season with all the teams. I don’t think people should take this lightly, they are bunch of hot girls but this is a contact sport so somebody is gonna get roughed up. It took a genius to put this together, and I for one am gonna enjoy watching some of these games, I’m curious to see the skills of some of these girls who have been on these teams for a while now and I have gone through some intense training.

Review: Eyeshield 21

Plot Summary: Kobayakawa Sena is a little guy who always get picked on by the bullies in school. Since elementary school, he always play the role of the ‘errand boy’ to the extent that he has become swift and fast in his movements. Coincidentally, Hiruma Youichi and Kurita Ryukan are looking for a fast running back for their American Football team (Amefuto) and want to put Sena in the team. To hide their new ‘star’ player from the eyes of other High Schools, Hiruma encases Sena in a Amefuto helmet with a dark visor and name him Eyeshield #21.

After 145 episodes at last Eyeshield 21 has come to an end, and what an adventure it was. I feel like I went through all this adventure with the whole Deimon Devil Bats team, I know them by heart, their positions, their numbers, and their personalities. My favorite is Hiruma because he is insane and always pushing his team, then there is Sena, Monta, Kurita, and then all the other amazing players from the other teams. I love American Football, probably the only sport that I love playing and watching so much. I could connect with Sena Kobayakawa since he is the amazing running back of the Deimon Devil Bats, the invincible Eyeyshield 21. I played the running back position so I could relate to him but I wasn’t fast, I was only good at taking a beating from the other teams tacklers. Watching the last episode of the anime felt like saying good bye to a group of friends, so many ups and downs, you felt happy from every episode, they fought so many battles with so many teams and improving their skills just so they could beat Ojou White Knights and head towards the Christmas Bowl. So many different characters and so much fun, you would really relate to any number of them, especially through all the hardships they went through to get to the top. I’m not sure if there is going to be anything after this but even after so many years I still want to see more of Eyeshield 21.

Eyeshield 21

Eyeshield 21 has been an anime for American Football Players and it just keeps getting better. I was stuck on Episode 87 for the longest time waiting for a new subber to get into the picture. Until a full pack was released by torrent leech and I managed to get all the episodes up to episode 127, I have been following Eyeshield 21 for the past few years and it is going to be tough knowing that such a good anime is coming to an end. The last episode at this point is episode 145 and knowing that I’m close to the end just doesn’t feel right, it is one hell of adventure watching these guys develop as an American Football team and I want to see them keep growing, I have been watching since 2005 and now it has come to an end in 2008. I still haven’t caught up to the end of it, but its still tough knowing its going to end.
