My Nest Camera Was Running During Aaron Rodgers’ Hail Mary Last Night

Kyle Scott - December 4, 2015

When there’s a big, signature play or moment in sports, countless videos from the stands and bars and streets pop up online. But, most people, at the time of day when such moments typically occur, are barely conscious on the couch, trying to keep their eyes open and at least one ear turned on lest they miss something. Rarely are those decidedly boring reactions captured on film.

I got a Nest camera for the baby. It’s awesome. I’ve been moving it around the house until he shows up, mostly to keep an eye on the dog on the rare occasions where I leave the house. You can draw outlines around just certain parts of the frame and receive a notification if something moves through it. You can speak through the camera (a genuine scare tactic I’ve placed neatly in my back pocket). And, for better or worse… you can rewind your life. This morning I realized I had it running during Aaron Rodgers’ hail mary last night, for which I, conveniently, woke up just in time. And yep, Nest captured all of the pure, unadulterated excitement. Behold, married life:

And that right there is the most football excitement our living room has seen this season.

Side note: I was wondering why I had a stiff neck this morning. Now I know.

What is this sorcery?!

Jason Peters Compares Sam Bradford to Rodgers, We Do Our Own Comparison

For many Eagles fans – unless you’re one of 43,000 who attended the last open practice – the analysis of Sam Bradford from beats, analysts, and old clips is all they’ve got to go off of. That’s why Jason Peters’ latest comparison not only offers great insight, but could inspire actual debate. Peters told the Delco Daily Times’ Bob Grotz that Bradford reminds him of Olivia Munn’s boyfriend:

“It’s effortless. I mean, it shoots out of his hand like a cannon. The guy has an arm, man. We’ve just got to keep him clean and good things are going to happen this year … You’d have to compare the release to somebody like Aaron Rodgers’ release. The quickness. The decisiveness. That’s what I see. I played with him in the Pro Bowl. The quickness of him getting rid of the ball, that’s what I see.”

Sure, so his release might be close to the same of a top-3 QB, but is the rest of his game? And more importantly, as Kyle said, “is he dating Olivia Munn?” The answer to the first question is “probably not” and the answer to the second one is “that would be awesome.” But he did (reportedly, maybe) date Victoria’s Secret model and Taylor Swift’s bestie #342 Karlie Kloss. It was the one time having those eyes made sense. So he’s not Rodgers, but he may be alright.

Olivia Munn Indicates There’s a Good Chance That Aaron Rodgers Celebrated His Victory over the Eagles by Boinking Olivia Munn

Goddammit, Aaron. God. Dammit.

The real life Sloan Sabbith was on Watch What Happens Live – that show with that guy on that channel your wife or girlfriend watches but you totally don’t watch – last night and agreed to play Plead The Fifth, a game in which you can decline to answer only one question out of three. Noted fiend (don’t click that link!) Munn was eager to answer the first one tossed her way: Do you have sex on game days? Her response, as you lean closer to your computer:

Cohen: “Do you have sex on game days?”

Munn: “I will say this: All the good luck charms are on the field and in the stands, it has nothing to do with me. And no we don’t, not on game day… there’s not a rule, but it just doesn’t happen because there’s other things to focus on.”

Cohen: “If he plays well, do you have sex after the game?”

Munn: “Depends on how late the game is.”

Padma Lakshmi: “Do you have sex the night before? Is that game day?”

Munn: “There’s no rules, by the way, it just doesn’t happen because there’s stuff to do. But usually yes, I try to have sex as much as I can.”

GODDAMN YOU, AARON! That Eagles-Packers game started at 4:25 EST (3:25 local time!), which means Rodgie was home and balls deep at exactly 8:40 p.m. his time while the rest of us flipped over from Homeland to NBC to catch the second half of Sunday Night Football after a day of licking our wounds from watching Rodgers put up 53 points and doing that cocky strut thing he does when he completes a deep pass (which is actually kind of sexy, if I’m being honest). Turns out that thing is a bleeping mating call for his freak girlfriend. No wonder why the Packers are undefeated at home! Can you imagine the incentive structure in this social contract?! This is a girl who once sent a boyfriend annotated photos of herself with captions that would make E. L. James blush (DON’T CLICK IT!). I don’t even want to know what Discount Double Check means inside the Rodgers household. I’m not sure I could handle it. All I know is that this is Rodgers’ world– the rest of us are merely inhabitants.

Can someone please kidnap Munn until after the Conference Championship round? Please?! PLEASE?!?!?!

Yes, You’re Allowed to Be Happy that Aaron Rodgers is Injured

Kyle Scott - November 5, 2013

Aaron Rodgers injured his shoulder last night and likely won’t play on Sunday, when the Eagles head to Lambeau.

From ESPN:

“It doesn’t look good,” A Packers source told ESPN’s Ed Werder on Tuesday. “This is the one we couldn’t afford to lose.”

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told the source there was no specific diagnosis on Rodgers’ left shoulder. The source told Werder that further tests are due Tuesday, including an MRI, but there was significant enough swelling to prevent doctors from determining the severity of the injury.

And the answer to the million dollar question is yes, you are allowed to be happy about this. No, you shouldn’t be happy that Aaron Rodgers got injured (thankfully it’s a shoulder and not a head or neck or even knee), but it’s perfectly acceptable to be thrilled that he’s not playing on Sunday– reason be damned. You can separate those two things, you dichotomous beast you. I feel so bad for A-Rodge, because he seems like a good dude… but I’m glad that MFer is out on Sunday, because nothing is going right in Philly right now and, well, we need this. 

Problem solved. You can feel better about yourself now.
