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!!!

What If They Grew A Steesh: Jim Harbaugh

Jim Harbaugh Mustache

I think adding a mustache to this picture of Jim Harbaugh is the only way to make him appear any CRAZIER, unless you were to surrounded him with like 35 cats.

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.

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.

Whiskered Cliff with Cliff Harris

Cliff Harris Mustache Cowboys

Cliff Harris is a former Dallas Cowboys safety. He went to the Pro Bowl six times in 10 years so it was a surprise to many when he retired at the age of 31 to focus on his oil ventures. At the press conference when he retired, a reporter told Cliff that he was a football player and he should leave the oil to the oilmen. Cliff responded with this:

“I’ve traveled over half our state to be here tonight. I couldn’t get away sooner because my new well was coming in at Coyote Hills and I had to see about it. That well is now flowing at two thousand barrels and it’s paying me an income of five thousand dollars a week. I have two others drilling and I have sixteen producing at Antelope. So, ladies and gentlemen… if I say I’m an oil man you will agree.”
