Coppa Italia and FA Cup winner, and a runner-up at Euro 2012

The Tim Tebow Circus Is Over

Tim Tebow's Era in New York is done.
The Tim Tebow Circus in New York is finally over.

The New York Jets had a busy weekend — selecting Geno Smith w/ the 39th Pick in the 2nd Round of the 2013 NFL Draft — signifying the end of the Tebow Era. The Jets have a plethora of quarterbacks to choose from: Mark Sanchez, David Garrard, Greg McElroy, Matt Simms and now, Geno Smith.

General manager: John Idzik and head coach: Rex Ryan informed Tebow Monday morning at the Jets facility that they were releasing the former 1st round, 25th pick star quarterback from the Florida Gators. 

"We have a great deal of respect for Tim Tebow," Ryan said in a statement. "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward.”

If Tebow isn’t claimed off waivers, the Jets will owe him $1.5 million from the trade w/ the Denver Broncos in 2011-12. The Jets cleared about $1 million in salary cap space by parting ways with Tebow.

Although Rex Ryan & Co. had big plans last summer after the Jets traded away a 4th-round draft pick for Tebow — dreams of a Wildcat Offense w/ Tony Soprano at the offensive-coordinating helm — but his presence proved to be a distraction that stunted Sanchez’s growth. 

Shirtless in Seattle Cortland
Tebow's every move was dissected by the New York Media — his shirt-less run in the rain during training camp grabbed headlines and his every move seemed to be a major distraction for the Jets Organization.

A year after Tebow captivated the NFL with a magical run to the playoffs w/ the Broncos, he was a non-factor with the Jets. 

The Jets tried out Tebow as a quarterback, H-back and even as a personal punt protector, but he never became anything more than a foot-note on an awful team.

Although the Jets praised Tebow's work ethic, the majority of people in the organization felt as if his heroics in Denver were just that — miracles.

Miracles can't happen every game — especially in the National Football League.

In the 2012-13 season, Tebow completed only six of eight passes and had 32 carries for 102 yards and no touchdowns in 77 snaps last season.

"Bye-bye Tebow, good luck!"

Tebow’s future in the NFL remains bleak. Although the Jacksonville Jaguars were interested in dealing for Tebow last year, they have yet to share any interests this off-season.

His NFL options are limited.

His Arena Football options are unlimited.

Although I'm not the biggest Tim Tebow fan, I would love to see a team give him a shot the way Doug Flutie and Kurt Warner were given a second chance in the NFL.

"World So Cold" – Mudvayne

"World So Cold" – Mudvayne

When passion's lost and all the trust is gone,
Way too far, for way too long
Children crying, cast out and neglected,
Only in a world so cold, only in a world
This cold
Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes
Then watch them drift away
Some might say, we've done the wrong things,
For way too long, for way too long

Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.
Away from the name 
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones 
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns 
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

burning whispers, Remind me of the days,
I was left alone, in a world this cold
Guilty of the same things, provoked by
The cause,
I've left alone, in a world so cold
Fever inside the storm,
So I'm turning away.
Away from the name 
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones 
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

Keep your thorns 
'Cause I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games 
(Fucking head games) 
The circumstances of a world so cold

Why does everyone feel like my enemy,
Don't want any part of depression or
Darkness, I've had enough
sick and tired, bring the sun, or I'm gone,
Or I'm gone

I'm backing out, I'm no pawn,
No mother-fucking slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about

Backing out, giving up, no mother-fucking 
Slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don't give a shit about 

I need to find a darkened corner,
A lightless corner,
Where it's safer and calmer,

I'm turning away.
Away from the name 
(Calling your names)
Away from the stones 
(Throw sticks and stones)
'Cause I'm through mending the wounds of us

I'm running away,
Away from the games
(Fucking head games)
Away from the space
(Hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold

I'm flying, I'm flying away,
Away from the names
(Calling your names)
Away from the games 
(Fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold

Mudvayne - Chüd, Güüg, Rü-D, and Spüg

"Nothing To Gein" – Mudvayne

"Nothing To Gein" – Mudvayne

Cold and silent, soiled face I will wash it all away,
With my love,
That's all she's ever needed, from me
It's my time, to mother,
One of my own in my life,
I am so alone, left with no one
In my life, I'm so alone

Life submissiveness,
Hypnotizing the ignorant a little boy's best friend's always his
At least that's what she said,
Life of a simple man,
Taught that everyone else is dirty,
And their love is meaningless,
I'm just a soiled dirty boy,
I'm just a soiled dirty boy,

Sheltered life innocence,
Insulated memories, spark reflections of my head,
Duality in my consciousness,
Caught in the war of hemispheres,
Between the love lost in my head,
Mommy do you still live inside of me,
I'm so lost in my life without any guiding,
Protected me my whole life from everything,
Nailed shut the doors to the shrine,
To screen your dead eyes from me and my sickness,
Mutilate and sew my new clothes for masquerading,
Aprons of flesh corpse scalped hair with skin upon my face,

Deliver the remains from her womb of earth,
Prep the rack and tie up for new love's rebirth,
Covert understanding of novice surgery,
I'll focus concentration and only take just what I need
For sickness I'm masticating,
Dancing and masturbating,
Celebrate in fields of night with skin upon my face

Mudvayne - Kud, Gurrg, sPaG and Ryknow

If I soak my hands in others blood am I sick,
If I wash my hands in others blood am I sick,
If I drench myself in others blood am I sick,
If I bathe myself in others blood

Blame mother for the sickness,
Mutilate and sew my new clothes for masquerading,
Aprons of flesh corpse scalped hair with skin upon my face,
Dance and masturbate in night light by myself..

Nothing is left for me to gain they're coming to take me far


Life of a simple man taught that everyone else is dirty and love is
I'm so soiled

BLOOD RIVER CROSSING by Smithsonian Channel


A baby zebra and his mother join hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and other herbivores on a bloody mission through the predator-packed expanses of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem.

Soccer Cannibal: Luis "Hannibal" Suarez Bites Branislav Ivanovic

Liverpool's Luis Suarez has apologised for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic during a Premier League clash.

Hannibal Luis Suarez

The striker said sorry on his personal Twitter account around three hours after the final whistle blew on the game at Anfield.

It is tough to decipher Luis Suarez's mental for he does have the talent but doesn't he possess the said mental capacity?

Miami Dolphins Unveil New Nike NFL Uniforms

Fan favorites: Reggie Bush & Jake Long were lost to the NFL free agency market

Although the Miami Dolphins lost Pro-Bowl players — Jake Long & Reggie Bush, they acquired several "big-time" free agents — Mike Wallace & Brent Grimes and added Dustin Keller, Brandon Gibson, Dannell Ellerbe & Philip Wheeler — along w/ drafting Dion Jordan as the 3rd overall pick of the NFL Draft.

Mike Wallace led the NFL w/ 19.4 yards per catch in 2012 as a Pittsburgh Steeler

The icing on Miami's "off-season" cake was a redesign of their famed Dolphins logo and now the unveiling of their "new" Nike football uniforms:

The newly re-designed Dolphins uniform stays true to its roots, while harnessing the city's modern cutting-edge characteristics to create a more refined head-to-toe look that embodies what it means to be a Miami Dolphin.

"The wonderful challenge about the Dolphins redesign is returning to the excitement and glory of when 1960s Miami was just super exciting and vibrant and colorful and forging new ground," said Todd Van Horne, the creative director for Nike Football. "And it was that kind of feeling that the Miami Dolphins organization wanted to recapture.”

"Newly-acquired" Miami wide receiver Mike Wallace appears on the video — for more details and "in-depth" look at the Dolphins' uniform design gallery at

Barry Larkin's Son – Shane Larkin: Creating His Own Path

University at Miami's star point-guard: Shane Larkinson of Hall of Fame baseball player: Barry Larkin, who grew-up around baseball but eventually shunned his father's sport to excel on the hardwood floor.

Dad: Shane Larkin to enter draft — ESPN

"Shane Larkin was still in grade school when the Cincinnati Reds began grooming him for the big leagues.
The son of a shortstop, Larkin enjoyed hanging out with the Reds at spring training and receiving tutorials on hitting from such experts as Pete Rose and Tony Perez.
Then one year he returned home to Orlando, Fla., and his Little League coach insisted Larkin's swing was all wrong.
In frustration, Larkin gave up baseball.
"It kind of crushed me," says his father, Hall of Famer Barry Larkin. "I laugh about it now, but I'll tell you, I was bent out of shape about it."
While dad was mad, the Miami Hurricanes are delighted with Larkin's decision to focus on basketball.
A sophomore this season, Larkin has blossomed into perhaps the best point guard in the Atlantic Coast Conference."

Hydundai's Controversial & Disturbing Viral Video

Hyundai's UK division has landed in hot water following an advertisement that promoted the zero exhaust pipe emissions fuel-cell ix35 compact SUV by featuring a mature man failing to commit suicide using a hose pipe affixed to the exhaust.

The one minute long advertisement was created by Innocean Europe adverting agency, owned by Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Chung Mong-koo and his daughter. It shows a failed suicide attempt because the vehicle had "100 percent water emissions," according to the advert.

Hyundai UK said that it didn't request or approve the commercial and it removed the video from YouTube on Thursday after condemnation of it spread swiftly through social media.

"Hyundai Motor deeply and sincerely apologises for the offensive viral ad," the company said. "It runs counter to our values as a company and as members of the community. We are very sorry for any offense or distress the video caused. More to the point, Hyundai apologises to those who have been personally impacted by tragedy."

Last month, Ford Motor Company expressed regret following a series of unauthorised adverts showing skimpily clad women bound and gagged in the back of a Ford Figo supermini. The ads were created by an agency in India, who fired the associated staff, to enter in a local awards show and were not envisioned to be part of a Ford campaign, the manufacture said at the time.

Back in 2010, Audi officials were distressed when one of its ad agencies used suicide as the foundation of a commercial that the company said it had neither paid for nor approved.

2007 saw General Motors air an advert during the Super Bowl when a yellow assembly-line robot dreams it loses its job after making a small mistake at work -- dropping a tiny screw -- and commits suicide by jumping off a bridge.

The 2014 Hyundai ix35 Fuel-Cell premiered at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March.

World's Biggest Running Back: 350 lbs David Fangupo Commits to University of Hawaii

A 350 lb running back? That's a defensive back's worst nightmare! David Fangupo just may bring that bad dream to reality for his upcoming NCAA opponents in 2013 as the 350-pound running back has committed to the University of Hawaii.

According to NESN via West Hawaii Today, Fangupo has agreed to run over his opponents on the Hawaiian Islands next fall, and from seeing his skills he may do it with ease.

David Fangupo is a 6'2" 348 lbs full-back

Fangupo played defensive tackle and offensive line prior to his senior season, but when his head coach at Kealakehe High School came up with idea of putting him in the backfield, a star was born.

Fangupo rushed for 538 yards and 10 touchdowns on 74 carries, leading Kealakehe to a 10-2 record and its third consecutive Big Island Interscholastic Federation title.

"Somebody stop me!" (Jim Carey-accent)

As of right now Fangupo said he doesn't know where the Rainbows' head coach Norm Chow, will play him, and he's no concerned one bit.

"Whatever helps the team is good for me," Fangupo said.

Are You a New Yorker? by Amasing

Are you a New Yorker?
by Amasing

At minimum, you have at least, have taken the subway. Unless you truly are a tourist and even then, are only here for a day you would have taken a cab (for convenience). The underground transit system could be unpleasant. The smell of stale urine, rats running around the tracks, and litter on the tracks (which obviously contribute to the rats) are a common site in New York. As a New Yorker (or a person who has been to New York), how do you ride the subway?

Now, the daily seating calculations of subway riders have been recorded for academic use, as part of an observational study conducted by researchers of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. So, how do you ride? For the most part, people who stand or sit prefer a spot near the door (for obvious reasons, they can get out quicker). So, are you a “stander” or a “sitter?”

Generally, men prefer to stand while women prefer to sit (this could be due in part because men are expected to be the “gentlemen” and give up a seat). Women, almost never sit in empty cars (for safety reasons).

Do you tend to change seats when the one you want is available? Seat changing doesn’t happen to often simply if the train is crowded; your preferred seat is taken during mid transition. Here is an unspoken rule of riding a subway car. Don’t stare! Eye contact has been observed (or not observed) on trains. We have been told as kids that it’s “rude” to stare but on trains, you have eye contact with someone and it’s almost automatic, you both look away. Trains are not known to be singles bar you know. That is why you see more and more people with headphones on so they can at least, but submersed in their own world.

As for the author, I predominately stand no matter how empty or full the train is. I don’t stare at a woman’s eyes, I stare at their breast (sorry for being a perv but it’s true).

"Radioactive" – Imagine Dragons

[Verse 1]
I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, ejecting out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse, whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

[Verse 2]
I raise my flags, don my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We'll paint it red to fit right in
I'm breaking in, shaping up, checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse


All systems go, sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

Fox News Anchor Loses It Over Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte's Interview

Fox29's anchors from Good Day Philly interviewed the Olympic swimmer during their 8 o'clock segment earlier today, and although Ryan is extremely handsome — we just found out that he looks a lot better when he doesn't say anything!!

Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte attempts to make a splash his new E! reality show

As hosts Sheinelle Jones and Mike Jerrick asked Lochte questions that are unlikely to stump anyone, the soon-to-be reality star struggled so much to even answer what his reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? is about, and quite honestly, it's kind of sad to see Ryan battle with his answers.

But what's even sadder is the fact that as soon as the interview is over, Sheinelle and Mike laugh so hard that they fall into tears and Jones' eye lashes even start flying.

MERAUDER's "CROSSFIRE" — NYHC Band's Crossover & Metalcore Origins

"Crossfire" by Merauder feat. Minus (Vocals)

Crossfire killing the innocent, another victim will fall
Who said their time has come, is it our Lord?
The one who we bow down before?
Parents crying, the life of their loved ones
Lay in death before their eyes
Casket bears a child of our future
Another victim from the realms of cities` crimes

Caught in the crossfire

Cry havoc and let slip the Dogs of War
Wrong us and face our revenge
Silence will be our tool of trade, `til our 9 shouts out
You`re the King of Kings on the Street, yet your demise is near
Prick us, do we not bleed?
Mirror reflects all that you have to fear

Caught in the crossfire
Caught in the crossfire

Another name carved in stone, as they lay to rest
Blood for blood, eye for eye, put it to the test
Call upon me to face the strike, seeing you in the end
As it takes place life goes to waste, all for revenge

† † †


NYHC Band's Crossover & Metalcore Origins

MERAUDER — a Crossover Hardcore Punk/Thrash Metal group from Brooklyn, New York whom formed in 1990 — established itself on Hardcore-Metal Scene by releasing demos, playing marquee Hardcore shows as a formidable opening act and/or headlining underground Hardcore shows along the East Coast.

Jorge • Vocals | Sob • Guitar | Anthony • Guitar | Mike • Bass | Pokey • Drum

Musical trends come and go quicker than most bands themselves, and endurance is rewarded to those acts who in the end find ways to take the aspects of their writing to new and inventive levels. New York's Merauder were on the forefront of the metal core wave in the early '90s, and few bands have had the pleasure of receiving the worldwide attention and embellishing the genre's conviction as they have.

Three years in the making, and over four years since their highly successful debut, Master Killer, Merauder's name is once again pouring over the heavy music world with the band's new album, Five Deadly Venoms.

Containing the same unbridled aggressions as its predecessor, the new album sports mature songwriting to ride along with the metallic-edged NYHC sound that you would expect from Merauder. Fair warning has been given; Five Deadly Venoms is dangerous and infectious, and will certainly make the younger generation of the genre's acts stand up and pay homage.

Merauder's Brooklyn upbringing allowed them early on to learn the dual meaning of survival: their ties with bands like Biohazard gave them some valuable industry insight, while coming up within local gangs helped them get through the treacherous neighborhood in which they were raised.

With their formation in 1990, the band's early days were spent playing live shows with other hardcore and metal notables such as Sick Of It All, Carnivore, Motorhead, Morbid Angel and the Cro-Mags, and along the way released a pair of demos and contributed a track to the now legendary 1992 compilation, East Coast Assault. Realizing that they would not be able to fully progress with their original singer, Merauder sought out and recruited a young vocalist by the name of Jorge from the band Full Contact, which was the best decision they could ever have made.

After a few more years of gigging and writing material, the band released a split 7" with fellow New Yorkers Stigmata in 1995, and immediately began and east coast tour with Biohazard despite still being unsigned. Their third overall demo (and first with Jorge fronting the band) was the final argument that this band was ready to step up to the next plateau.

By mid 1995 the band was signed to Century Media Records and quickly began work in the studio with Parris Mayhew, founding Cro-Mags guitarist and long-time friend. Before Master Killer could even be released the band was hand-picked by Fear Factory as their opening act for a string of 20 US dates, and the band later were introduced to Europe by opening for German legends Bohse Onkelz, who routinely draw between 5,000 and 7,000 fans per show.

All in all, Master Killer has seen worldwide sales of over 30,000 copies, and Merauder fans have been starving for new material for far too long. Recorded at various periods and sessions throughout '98 and '99, Five Deadly Venoms (the title of course was inspired by the famous kung-fu movie) was produced by A.J. Novello from Both Worlds, and the in-your-face vocals combined with creative playing and song arrangements make this a unique, forceful and at times quite melodic metal core album. If the jarring shock of opener "Scarred" doesn't hook the listener from the very start, the catchy "Find My Way" or the emotionally swirling "Unify" certainly will (the record also closes with a cover of the Cro-Mags' "Final War").

More experimental tracks such as "Life Of My Own" and the moody title track quickly prove the progression of this outfit, and the contributions of new drummer Pokey (ex-Leeway, Both Worlds) and bassist/good friend Mike (currently in Candiria, one of Rolling Stone's 10 best current metal bands) are the final pieces that complete Five Deadly Venoms. It's their dedication that has made them one of the most notable crossover acts ever, and Merauder is back and deadlier than ever before.

In 1995, the band released an EP after vocalist Jorge joined, and toured with Biohazard. Upon the release of their 1996 debut, the band scored a slot opening for Fear Factory and toured Europe in 1995 with Böhse Onkelz. Merauder is also one of the key bands from the NYHC scene. — Merauder | Facebook
