Until then, let's get on with the new matters at hand: the Pats vs. Chargers this weekend. More

Slice Adam Kuban 9 comments

The Super Bowl goes down this weekend. And while some of you may be pulling for Pittsburgh and others the Pack, you should all be behind pizza, right? A factoid that's often trotted out at this time of year is that Super Bowl Sunday is the busiest day of the year for pizza delivery. (Halloween is the second-biggest delivery day.) So, are you doing pizza during the game this year? » More

Video: Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez Eats a Hot Dog During Game

Erin Zimmer 13 comments

What really happens on the NFL sidelines? People eat hot dogs. At least Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets did at yesterday's game against the Oakland Raiders, only to be busted by cameras. He later apologized for wolfing down the tube meat, saying he "wasn't feeling very good" and needed a snack. Thanks to a great zoom-in job, we see that Sanchez is a mustard man. Sounds like he needs to read our mustard taste test for optimal sidelines snacking pleasure. The video and Sanchez's explanation, after the jump.... More
