Yes, I’m a #Patriots fan, but it was surprisingly, albeit temporarily, enjoyable to slip inside the skin of a NY Giants fan for this week’s FAN PRESS CONFERENCE for SBNation. too much of their joy, too much of their blind confidence, has come at the expense of my favorite football team, and us fans, so this was a little broad comedy payback. Also, seriously, there are peopler who think like this.

OIh, and yes, even though it’s been painful and upsetting at times to be a football fan this season, yes, we can still root, and emotionally invest in and, yes, even laugh at it sometimes, too.

FOOTBALL IS BACK! And in addition to the return of our favorite sport, we also get to celebrate the return of pre-game celebrations. One of the things America does best; eat and drink in excess, all in the name of sport. Only one team can win inside the stadium, but outside of it we all win. So to kick off another great season of pigskin parties and football festivities, Tailgate Fan had a two-for-one special, two tailgates in one state to start the season right. First, Ohio State @ Navy, in Maryland, 12pm kickoff, followed by Maryland hosting James Madison at 3:30pm. And while the neutral site “home game” for Navy didn’t exactly present an early morning blowout that knocked any part of our wardrobe off. In fact, it was kind of a Chesapeake Bay BrOhio State takeover. But U of Maryland…ooh, I need to come party with you again. Anyway, a true Tailgate Fan knows that, when given the chance, you’re supposed to roll straight from one party to the next. Good times.

Don’t forget to tune in to the season premiere of “Tailgate Fan: College Edition”, tonight, Sept 4th, at 6:30pm, on the CBS Sports Network (you get the channel, it’s on there, just check local listings). Off to Auburn this Saturday for the next episode - WAR EAGLE!

Athletes usually make terrible actors off the field/court. But the movies that feature them are usually wonderfully terrible in the “so bad it’s actually watchable” way. This week on The Untitled Sports Show we run down our 5 favorite worst performances by an athlete. Trying to pick just 5 was like trying to just pick A pair of shoes from Imelda Marcos’s closet; IMPOSSIBLE. Yes, I just compared athletes in movies to a former first lady of The Philippines.

People say and do dumb shit all the time in social media. And sports is no exception. On The Untitled Sports Show it’s our job to find that dumb shit in the sports social media world and bring it to you, occasionally with reasonably humorous commentary! This week we discuss how Steve Coburn being a crybaby could affect the delicious future of California Chrome, why Johnny Manziel is so important to the sports media world, and why Kate Upton needs to relax. All that and more in less than 3 minutes, from your friends at @CBSLocalSports

"Wait…there’s an actual sports called Slamball that’s basketball with trampolines? WTF? Who came up with this nonsense?"

I don’t know. All I do know is it’s the stupidest and awesomest new “sport” I’ve seen in years, like real-life NBA Jam. And it’s one of the random sports we highlight in our ‘Sports We’d Like To See More Of” Edition of The Untitled Sports Show.
