  • Another Twitter honor for Biz Nasty

    Sports Illustrated released their annual list of the one hundred most influential Tweeters in the sports world Wednesday. The list includes many familiar names: Bill Simmons of ESPN/Grantland, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban among them. There isn’t a whole lot of Arizona influence on the list at all. […]
  • San Antonio Spurs unveil very Spurs-like alternate uniform

    The San Antonio Spurs will look a bit different this season. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili will be there until the end of time, and Gregg Popovich will still be running things. The difference will be purely aesthetic, as the Spurs will be rocking a new, alternate uniform. Goodbye, drab look that features […]
  • USC’s Kiffin attempts to hold shortest press conference in history

    USC head football coach Lane Kiffin has reason to be upset. His Trojans just lost to Stanford 21-14, putting their National Championship hopes on thin ice. His offensive line, charged with protecting Heisman Trophy candidate Matt Barkley, yielded five sacks and struggled to keep the quarterback upright. And his name is Lane. Still, none of […]

  • Every Pac-12 fan in :60

    You may remember a few weeks ago here on The Haboob, we posted a funny video that from NOC that featured every NFL fan in 90 seconds. Now, the same folks have produced a similar video about the fans of the Pac-12, and wouldn’t you know it, they’ve more than captured the essence in most […]
  • Smart Stanford kids skip class on Sunday

    Few people would doubt the academic prowess of the student body at Stanford University. Known for producing some incredibly smart people — and the Lopez twins — most would agree anyone who hails from Palo Alto would make it a point to go to class. Unless, of course, their football team just upset the USC […]
  • Fitzgerald finds himself in control again

    Since signing an 8-year, $120 million dollar contract in August 2011, Larry Fitzgerald has had to endure quite a lot over the last year. The Cardinals’ wideout has been forced to catch passes from the much-maligned quarterback duo of John Skelton and Kevin Kolb. He’s been shut out of the playoffs for two consecutive years. […]
  • Bissonnette sounds off on NHL labor problems

    Paul Bissonnette is one of the most well-known members of the Phoenix Coyotes not because of what he does on the ice, but rather because what he says off it. And what he says, specifically, on his @BizNasty2point0 Twitter page. Bissonnette took to Twitter to discuss the NHL’s ongoing labor problems, which could lead to […]
  • In case you’ve always wanted a really big Steve Nash guitar…

    Ok, it’s been two months, but c’mon…the thought of Steve Nash in that hideous color combination of purple and gold is still too much to take. In fact, as we get ever closer to the beginning of the NBA season, maybe it’s getting even harder. Many around Phoenix are unloading Nash merchandise — not only […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald is a big Tom Brady fan — maybe too big

    Odds are good Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald fondly remembers the days when Kurt Warner was tossing touchdown passes his way. But perhaps he yearns for a different kind of quarterback for reasons not related to football? “He’s a model of consistency,” Fitzgerald said of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when asked about the signal […]
  • ESPN releases outtakes from greatest commercial you’ve seen in the last week

    Last week we were all treated to an outstanding commercial produced by ESPN. The spot featured NFL insider John Clayton, poking fun at his “dedication” and the thought that he is not exactly the guy he appears to be on T.V. It was hilarious, and if you don’t think so you’re wrong. As a followup […]
  • SEC QBs fighting over Phoenix native?

    With Erin Andrews moving on to Fox, Samantha Steele’s role on ESPN’s College Football broadcasts has grown — and many are taking notice. Two SEC quarterbacks, Tennessee’s Tyler Bray and Georgia’s Aaron Murray are in that category. Steele, a Phoenix native and Central High School grad, was in Knoxville to interview Bray leading up to […]
  • Not everything perfect for 49ers

    If you’re a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, you’ve got to be pretty happy with how things went on opening day 2012. The Niners went to Green Bay and beat up on the Packers 30-22 at Lambeau Field, with quarterback Alex Smith throwing two touchdown passes. One of those went to tight end Vernon […]
  • Cardinals fans ‘represented’ in funny video

    It’s amazing how a team’s success (or lack thereof) can affect a fan base. Check out this video to see some guy who does his best to describe every NFL fan in 90 seconds. His Cardinals fan representation is…umm…yeah, and it shows up at the 1:20 mark. But do yourself a favor, and watch the […]
