They’ve Got Tickets To Ride

    On the heels of their impressive come-from-behind victory on the road at Texas A&M, the Oklahoma State Cowboys moved up to the No. 5 spot in the Associated Press college football rankings. They trail top-ranked LSU, OU, Alabama and Boise State.
    Some experts believe the Cowboys are the team to beat in the Big 12, but they have several crucial encounters coming up in October and a showdown with OU, which could have national championship implications, in December.
    The Cowboys have an Oct. 15 clash with Texas in Austin, followed by a visit to Missouri on Oct. 22. They return home for a Oct. 29 meeting with quarterback Robert Griffin and Baylor.
    Of course if OSU remains unbeaten, as well as OU, all eyes will be on the expected shootout in Stillwater.
    Tickets are available for all of these key games and more by visiting LavaTickets.com. The website is an excellent source for tickets for college football games, Major League Baseball, NFL, NHL, NBA, boxing, golf, soccer and other high-profile sporting events.

New World Order

    Japan 2, U.S. 2 (Japan wins on penalty kicks, 3-1).
    Loved how some of the American players dismissed Japan’s victory, saying the Japanese had more to play for because of the recent tragedies in their country. Bullshit. Just give them credit and admit you committed 1 of the biggest gags this year.
    Wonder will they earn an award for this collapse at the ESPYs next year? You think?

Let’s Get Drunk And Be Somebody

    Party over there.
    From our good friends at Busted Coverage: “Barcelona was lit up last night after fans and police clashed post-UEFA championship in which the Barca boys won 3-1 at Wembley. Remember late last week when BC warned you this futbol match would result in legendary fan reaction? Yeah, well the streets of Barcelona turned into mayhem as police tried to restore order and move drunken fans out of the central square. But the real highlight of the night came when one fan went full-shorts-to-his-ankles on the fuzz.”
