The Greatest American Gladiators


February 13th, 2008

Fantasy Sports

I was going to write about the forgotten stars of LaCrosse, but have there ever been any stars of lacrosse? I don’t know. A reader suggested this title to me, and quite frankly I can’t think of any forgotten lacrosse stars. I know there was Duncan Feebles, but I wouldn’t really classify him as a star, a dynamo, but not a star. Besides everyone still remembers him. So I’ve decided to list my top 3 American Gladiators of all time…

Thunder Thighs – Thunder Thighs looked like a man, but I’m fairly positive she was a woman. She looked amazing and her face looked like it was literally chiseled from stone. Her greatest asset? You guessed it. Her thighs. Described on the telecasts as portable tree trunks. Her legs provided a very solid base to work from. She was excluded from aerial games, but was quite dominant in Powerball.

Magic Man – Magic Man was one of the biggest gladiators on the show, and he was cut. He had muscles everywhere. He barely looked human due to the fact that his steroid enhanced shoulders covered most of his neck. He had an inability to raise his hands above his head, but that didn’t stop him from excelling at the Joust.

Lard – Lard was the fattest Gladiator on the show, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t agile. In fact I daresay he could have been one of the fastest Gladiators in competition. He was unstoppable whenever he got his body moving. Due to his excess mass, he had the ability to pummel competitors into submission without using appendages. How he did it, I’ll never know. He excelled on the Rings. Once he swung… Watch out!

Who was your favorite American Gladiator and why?

Top 6 NFL Players of All Time


January 26th, 2008

Fantasy Sports

Joe Mantegna – After a brief stint in the Godfather, and lending his voice to The Simpsons, Mantegna went on to become one of the greatest quarterbacks of our generation. He won four Fiesta Bowls and his chemistry with Jerry Arborio was unparalleled.

Dick ButtKiss – This animal is nothing like his name. His name probably should have been Dick ButtKick. Anyone? No? Okay. This machine may be best known for his roles in Hang Time, and Webster with Emanuel Lewis. Make no bones about it, this guy was a destroyer.

Tom Brady – Brady was the only joint child of Mike and Carol. He was primarily raised by Alice, and learned football from Sam the butcher. Brady would go on to dominate the sport of football, and step out of the shadows of his older brother Johnny Bravo.

Deacon Jones – The only ordained deacon to play in the NFL was a rugged force to be reckoned with. After serving his community parish, Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrow, Jones began his career by destroying quarterbacks. He followed each sack with a small prayer.

Jerry Arborio – After leaving his Uncle Ben’s field, Arborio went on to greatness in the NFL, and set almost every receiving record known to man. With Joe Mantegna by his side, Arborio was a constant threat. He spent almost twenty years in the league and this San Francisco Treat’s work ethic was unmatched.

James Brown – Ironically playing for the Cleveland Browns, Brown was the most dominant rusher of all time. He began his football career after a string of hit singles, and lit the NFL up. He shockingly announced his retirement after only eight seasons and went on to record Living in America, a song he played the night Apollo Creed tragically passed away.

Am I missing any players?  Let me know, and let the debates begin!
