Marty Mornhinweg’s Wacky Weapons: The Sizaire-Berwick Wind Wagon

You notice how the Super Bowl is basically never held in cold weather these days? Either they put it in a dome, or else it ends up somewhere in the South where they don't have to worry about cold weather. That's kind of a shame, if you ask me. I

Temptation Island Talk – Episode 2

Welcome back! I'm renaming these recurring posts Temptation Island Talk because I'm mentally 12 years old and it's me talking about each week's episode, so SYNERGY! (May not know what synergy means.) This week, the couples went on their first dates, there was some serious DRAMA in one

Your “It’s A Post About Nothing” Friday Evening Open Thread

Nope, you gotta wait another week (plus) for the Superb Owl LIII. YOU'LL GET NOTHING AND LIKE IT!!!!! (get your foot off the boat, Spalding) ((roman numerals are stupid)) (((LMFAO))) Anywhoooo.... But even without your football fix this weekend, you will still be getting a variety of incessant media takes on the "Big Game".  So in

Boots On The Ground: The AVN Awards Show

I've mentioned this before and this is probably not surprising to many of you,  but yes,  I, BallsofSteelAndFury, have attended the AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. For someone NOT in the industry,  it is as surreal as you may think. I've wanted to tell this story for a long time, 

Marty Mornhinweg’s Wacky Weapons: The Cochran Revolver

Morning, all. Been sitting here thinking about risk and reward a lot; the pundits are all saying that we need to figure out how to incorporate big plays better into offences across the league. I guess there's something to that, but I'm still not sure if I'm entirely sold on

Sometimes we CAN have nice things: The Return of Temptation Island!

Oh, kids! I was in a down mood after Sunday's games and I was looking for something to cheer me up. Bob's Burgers was good,  as usual,  but it was a repeat.  As I was scanning the guide,  I saw on USA Network the word "Temptation". Scrolling to the right,

Your “Is It A Catch?” Friday Evening Open Thread

It's Conference Championship Weekend, folks. There will be bad calls.  There will be delays for video reviews.  And you will be pissed off.  And maybe a little drunk. Well....maybe more than a little. When the smoke clears, the Rams and Chiefs will still be standing. I think....but don't quote me on that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0ibBPhiaG0 Pat and Tyreek

Marty Mornhinweg’s Wacky Weapons: The Hiller Flying Platform

Morning, everyone! Apparently I've been fired by the Ravens. It came as a bit of a shock to me, not gonna lie; I was told it was because we wanted to get Lamar to conform to the offensive system a little bit further. As a staff, we were concerned about

Your “Well I Guess That’s Music Allegedly – #3” Friday Evening Open Thread

First, Some Business Now, don't get me wrong.  Even though I'm about to call all of you a bunch of assholes, I'm not judging.  We're all assholes.  I'm not special.  I'm probably the biggest gaping hole here. (don't reply to that, please) But regarding yesterday's Quotables Submissions  ... Go there, right freaking now.  And say

Marty Mornhinweg’s Wacky Weapons: The Tančík

Everyone's talking about the quarterback revolution these days; it's certainly a different landscape than what I was used to with Charlie Batch and Joey Harrington back in the day with the Lions. Sure, they talk about Russell Wilson and Marcus Mariota and Baker Mayfield and guys like that, and I
