  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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 […]

  • Does Jared Dudley want to play for the Celtics?

    After the massive roster shake-up in the offseason, Jared Dudley is probably the most recognizable face on the Phoenix Suns’ roster.

Anyway, Dudley was roaming the sidelines at his alma mater Boston […]

    The Phoenix Coyotes want you to like both them and Arena on Facebook so much that they’ll offer you a chance to see Justin Bieber if you do. JUSTIN BIEBER!!! The hockey club is using tickets to the Bieb’s September 29 concert as bait incentive for sharing this post as well as liking their […]
  • Vancouver writer wants Coyotes franchise “to die”

    Wow, what a shock. More anti-Phoenix Coyotes venom coming from north of the border. This time, it’s originating from British Columbia, where Harrison Mooney blogs for The Vancouver Sun.

  • ‘You’re going the wrong way’

    We venture outside the Grand Canyon State for a “highlight” from the Towson State-Kent State season opener from Thursday night. Yes, you read that right…Towson State against Kent State, so you know this is good. Late in the first half, Kent was punting to Towson and the ball grazed off of the return man. The […]
