NFL Week 12 Pick Em

ESPN Expert Picks

Week 11 NFL Pick Em Results

November 28, 2009

My apologies folks with the delay in results, but I was having laptop issues. Thankfully I was able to get everything I needed and have the results for last week. Overall Thunder Treats tore it up with all 5 of our picks. This week, Dilo dominated the results with a 14-2 record. There is only one way to explain this: Someone else must have made his picks. All joking aside, Dilo is making a move to the overall leader Sahli and only trails him by 3 overall games. The best part yet again of Dilo’s 14-2 record is he beat every single ESPN’s so called “expert picks.” Yet another week a Thunder Treater has dominated the entire cast of 6 figured overpaid so called experts.

Cavaliers Big Man Has an Even Bigger Heart

November 26, 2009

Cleveland Cavaliers center Shaquille O’Neal has sat out the last 6 games with a sore shoulder but make no mistake, he is doing anything but sitting. Last week Shaq played Santa Claus, or as he calls it “Shaq-A-Claus”, to the youth of northeast Ohio. He went to the Toys R Us in Mayfield and filled more than a dozen shopping carts with toys from all over the store. All of the toys bought by Shaq will be donated to the Toys for Tots organization. He has been doing this for about 15 years and credits his mother and father for getting him started with the organization.

“About 15 years ago, my mother and father ordered me to go to a Toys ‘R’ Us and buy toys and give them out to kids,” he said. “I got a call from my mother and she said, ‘Boy, get your butt up, go down to the store and buy some gifts for the kids.”

That’s not all Shaq has been up to though. Last week he paid for the funeral of 5 year old Shaniya Davis of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Her body was found on the side of the highway and her mother is charged with human trafficking and child abuse involving prostitution. Mario McNeil is being charged with murder, rape and kidnapping. I think, in addition to the funeral, we lock those 2 sick fucks in a room with the Diesel and let him go to town on them.

I can’t tell you how happy it makes me as a fan to see one of our players step up and help out. When these guys go out of their way to put a smile on a childs face or lift a family that has fallen it restores my faith in humanity. On this Thanksgiving I am thankful there are still people in this world who know right from wrong, good from bad and have a moral compase that always points north. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

NFL Week 12 Pick Em

November 26, 2009

Good Morning to our East Coast followers, and a Happy Thanksgiving Eve to our folks on Pacific time. As always, we here at Thunder Treats would like to wish everyone out there a happy thanksgiving. With Thanksgiving here that can only mean 1 thing: Madden’s famous TURDUCKEN!
Due to some technical difficulties, I will have to post the results from last week some time tomorrow barring anymore laptop issues. As with every Thanksgiving, we have our Thursday slate of games featuring the Green Bay Packers traveling to face the Detroit Lions. The 415 kickoff pits the Oakland Raiders traveling to Jerry’s world to face the Dallas Cowboys. Finally at 815 EST the NY Giants travel to the mile high city (which I highly recommend traveling to visit) to face the Denver Broncos. For this week’s Thursday games, it is an across the board unanimous selection of teams. All 5 of us picked the Green Bay Packers, the Dallas Cowboys, and the NY football Giants. Again, Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Thunder Treats nation!

Penn State Linebacker Class of 2022

November 26, 2009

Meet Nyrel Sevilla(Age 6), Linebacker U’s top recruit of 2022. My guess is that Nyrel will paralyze a small child in the near future and have a baby of his own by age 10. He is the Chuck Norris of Pop Warner football. Barbie Carpenter should take lesson from Nyrel.

Hump Day Hottie: Leslie Bibb

November 25, 2009

After a little technical difficulties (blogger being a turd) we are back and just in time to deliver your Hump Day Hottie. This week we chose (head nod to Jack Potts) Leslie Bibb. You will probably recognize Leslie from her roll as Carlie Bobby in Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Bibb got her first big break when she was in the movie Private Parts. As much as I wished she was the lady who had an intimate moment with a subwoofer, she was not. You also might recognize her from Ironman as the Vanity Fair reporter and, according to IMDB she will reprise her roll in the upcoming Ironman 2. She has also been in a slew of television series including hits like ER and Crossing Jordan. So when your family asks you what your thankful for this Thanksgiving, go ahead and say “family”, “friends” and “health” because you can rest easy knowing we here at Thunder Treats know you mean “Thunder Treats, Leslie Bibb and every other Hump Day Hottie”. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy more of Leslie after the jump…

Bring Your Floaties – Mirror Lake 2009

November 20, 2009

It’s Ohio State – Michigan week and that means one of the craziest traditions in all of college sports has just taken place. Last night, thousands of students stumbled to the center of Ohio State’s campus and jumped into the icy waters of Mirror Lake. The tradition goes back many years and is rumored to have begun as some type of freshman hazing back in the early 1900’s and has since morphed into the Michigan week tradition. Some make the jump as part of superstition while others just want to be a part of the party – either way alcohol typically plays a role in the decision. Many of the authors of Thunder Treats have taken the plunge into Mirror Lake, some of us multiple times. Some highlights of the event include: mud sliding, funny flotation devices, lost/ruined cell phones and cameras, half naked people, naked people, cannonballs, shrinkage, chicken fights, oars, snowball fights and throwing other peoples shoes while they are in the lake. There’s nothing like jumping into a lake in Ohio in the middle of November. While enjoying these pictures, please keep in mind that next years game will be played the Saturday after Thanksgiving. For those of you keeping track at home, this means that the Mirror Lake Jump is in serious danger of losing a lot of it’s participants due to the fact that the tradition will fall on Thanksgiving. Ouch. Ohio State students, I know there are only about 50,000 of you, maybe you guys should speak up and organize a new date? I’m not sayin, I’m just saying. With that said…LET’S GO BUCKS! Enjoy the pictures after the jump!

Below are our Ohio State University correspondents without whom this would not be possible. Big thanks to K-Lo and her trusty assistant Johnny C on their photos!!
