RIP David “Deacon” Jones – The Sackman

David Deacon Jones Mustache RIP

David “Deacon” Jones died at the age of 74. Jones was a defensive end in the NFL who came up with the term “sack” for tackling the quarterback behind the line of scrimmage. It sounds like Jones might have killed a raccoon or two as a child based on his description of a sack.

“You take all the offensive linemen and put them in a burlap bag, and then you take a baseball bat and beat on the bag. You’re sacking them, you’re bagging them. And that’s what you’re doing with a quarterback.”

Josh Freeman Michael Jackson Mustache

ESPN the Magazine has put together a music issue featuring athletes posing as famous album covers. Here is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman as Michael Jackson (slightly modified) on the Thriller cover.

The issue also features NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson as Bob Dylan and track and field sprinter Allyson Felix as Beyoncé. You’ve got to give it to ESPN the Magazine for knowing their audience. They took athletes their readers might usually not care about and dressed them up as musicians they probably don’t care about. 

The Ryan Brothers

Rex and Rob Ryan Mustache Oklahoma State University

Here’s a quick two-for-one to get us through til tomorrow. Rex and Rob Ryan are current NFL coaches but in 1981 they were members of the Southwest Oklahoma State University football team where they sported matching PENCIL THIN STEESHES!!!

Who Is Going To Win The Super Bowl?

Who is going to win the Super Bowl? Well it’s all up to Joe Flacco. Last year he had a pretty nice mustache and he went and shaved it off for some reason. If he comes out with a steesh on Sunday I’m betting all my money ($11) on the Ravens.

What Time Does The Puppy Bowl Start?

Puppy Bowl 2013 Mustache

Why the F would we know?! Unless this little guy is playing (or more likely “scouting talent” IYKWIM) we aren’t interested.

Michael Phelps and Ray Lewis Sitting In A Tree

Michael Phelps Mustache

Michael Phelps was on the sideline to watch the Ravens beat the Patriots last night. If I saw him on the street looking the way he did last night, there’s no way I would be able to recognize him. In fact, if I saw him anywhere dressed in anything other than a swim suit and swim cap, I probably wouldn’t take notice.

Phelps, who is a big fan of the Ravens, said that he drew inspiration from Ray Lewis to come back and train for the 2012 Olympic games. No word yet who Phelps murdered in order to start his comeback.

What If They Grew A Steesh – Katherine Webb

I thought last night’s National Championship game was going to be boring to the point that it was un-watchable and boy was I right. It only took one quarter for Alabama to put Notre Dame away. For those of you who stuck around though, you heard 73 year old Brent Musburger get way too excited to see Katherine Webb, girlfriend of the Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. If you missed what Musburger said it went something like this:

“WOW. Can you believe how sexy that girl is? To think that I was 50 when she was born. Bu I mean take a look at that fine piece of ” and then they had to cut his mic.

Katherine then wore a mustache disguise  for the second half to avoid getting further creeped on by any old men. Unfortunately for her, Musburger seemed to like it. This photo was his reaction to seeing Katherine with a steesh:
