Death of a Titan

bud-adams

Kenneth Stanley “Bud” Adams, the second-generation oil magnate who brought professional football to Houston in 1960 and, three decades later, spirited it away to Tennessee, has died at the age of 90.

The passing was first reported by Brent Zwerneman of Hearst News Services. A source said early indications are Adams’ death was of natural causes, but the source stressed the “early indications” aspect.

Adams founded the Houston Oilers in 1959 as part of the new American Football League. Until his death he remained owner, chairman of the board, and president and CEO of the franchise that became the Tennessee Titans in 1999 after a heated and  controversial departure from Houston.

He was one of only four NFL owners to reach the 350-win plateau, a milestone only shared with Ralph Wilson (Buffalo Bills), Dan Rooney (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Al Davis (Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders).

R.I.P Bud Adams.  We’ll look for that double bird in the sky.

HIMYM Top 10

how-i-met-your-mother

In honor of the final season of How I Met Your Mother we’ve decided to rank Ted Mosby’s love interest on the show.

We’ve taken a handful of factors into consideration – looks, personality, looks, compatibility and looks.  Here are the top 10.  (note:  Robin played by Cobie Smulders is not eligible).

10. Naomi (Katie Holmes)

MV5BMTc5MjUyMjgwMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTIwNjY5Ng@@__V1__SX640_SY922_

They both built up the idea of each other after one unforgettable Halloween together.  Unfortunately “the slutty pumpkin” and Ted had the worst chemistry of all the ladies in our top 10.

9. Amy (Mandy Moore)

Despite her tattooed rock and roll character, we still give Amy a top 10 ranking.  You have to have one wild card in the mix.

 8. Stella (Sarah Chalke)

imagesCA0RLYEN

Stella left Ted at the alter for her ex.  Their chemistry was great on-screen, however the past feelings for the father of her child were too much for Ted to overcome.

 7. Trudy (Danica McKellar)

MV5BMTM5NTMyNTg0NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTczNjAwOQ@@__V1__SX640_SY964_

We love Trudy.  Not only did she give us the pineapple incident, she provided Ted and unforgettable evening and threesome with her and college roommate Rachel (Busy Phillips).  Thinking again, maybe Trudy should jump into the top 5?

6. Janet (Amber Stevens)

Attractive billionaire.  Enough said.

 5. Zoey (Jennifer Morrison)

We have a love/hate relationship with Zoey.  Our feelings literally changed week to week.  Her character was annoying but Jennifer Morrison had the girl next door look that was hard to dislike.

 4. Honey (Katy Perry)

Dumber than a bag of rocks and absolutely gorgeous.  “Oh honey!”

 3. Mary the Paralegal (Erinn Bartlett)

The girl who was probably the closest thing to a perfect match for Ted.  She loved all the dumb things he did and was stunning.  Unfortunately Barney led Ted to believe she was an escort which led to “I can’t do this, you’re a hooker.”

 2. Cindy (Rachel Bilson)

  rachel bilson

The former love interest turned lesbian.  We had high hopes Cindy would be the mother when she was originally cast.  We’ve been a big fan since her days on the O.C.  If not for the simply fact she is not “the mother” she would be number 1.

 1.  The Mother (Chrisitin Milioti)

1210572131-your-mother-jo34

You have to give the nod to the girl who in the end lands the guy.  We’re excited to see their relationship grow and develop this season.  The on-screen chemistry between the two early on has been fantastic.

How I Met Your Mother (often abbreviated to HIMYM) is an American sitcom that premiered on CBS on September 19, 2005. The 2013–14 season will be the show’s ninth and final season.The series follows the main character, Ted Mosby, and his group of friends in Manhattan.

Do you want to be in the new Batman vs. Superman movie?

Although production is not scheduled to begin until next year, the new Batman vs. Superman movie will be shooting this weekend at a college campus near you.  Although don’t expect to see Zack Snyder, Batfleck and crew at USC, Notre Dame or Texas.

batmansuperman

Zack Snyder and his production crew will be at the East Los Angeles College football game Saturday, October 19 to briefly film during halftime.  Only in L.A.

The set up of the supposed scene(s) is a football game between Metropolis State University and Gotham City University, with Batman’s team having home-field advantage. (We know how well that went for the Rogues last go round – thanks Bane).

News like this could produce a record crowd for an East LA College game (I’m just assuming they are not regularly playing in front of sell out crowds).

Is Britney’s New Hot Body in “Work Bitch” Really Hers?

Britney is back in her new video “Work Bitch” and hotter than ever!  Or is she?

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Britney Spears looks amazing in her new video, but recent doubt and questions have been taking the internet by storm questioning whether the star received some “editing” before the video was released.

HOAX Films, the Californian visual effects studio that worked on the video, recently released images from the clip before the editing process, showing a slightly heavier Britney body.

According to industry blog Sound&Picture.com, HOAX “completed sky replacements shots, set extensions and clean-up” for “Work Bitch”.  By clean up did they mean edit or perhaps air brush?

The studio has not commented on whether or not Britney was in fact airbrushed, so it’s all speculation at this point.  What does everyone think?

Shark Tank Star Found NOT GUILTY

Mark Cuban, billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and star of ABC’s Shark Tank, was found NOT GUILTY of insider trading when he sold his stock in an Internet company in 2004, a Texas jury ruled on Wednesday.

Cuban, 55, estimated by Forbes magazine to have a net worth of $2.5 billion, was accused by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission of trading based on non-public information when he sold 600,000 shares in Internet search company Mamma.com for worth $7.9 million thus avoiding a $750,000 loss.

Prosecutors argued during a two-week trial that Cuban sold his stake after learning from Mamma.com Chief Executive Guy Faure that the company was planning a private placement that would dilute his holdings.

Mamma.com shares dropped 9.3 percent on the morning after the offering was announced. By that time, Cuban had already sold his shares.  The nine-member jury issued the verdict after deliberating 3 hours and 35 minutes.  Cuban simply nodded and smiled as the verdict was read.
