Super Bowl XLVIII aka Marijuana Bowl, Stoner Bowl, Doobie Bowl

If all goes as oddsmakers have predicted, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will win the conference championship games on Sunday and gear up for what will be a Super Bowl for the ages.
Not because of the talents that will be going head to head, but the first ever Marijuana Bowl? That’s something you don’t hear every day.
These two teams represent the major cities in Colorado and Washington, the only states that have legalized recreational marijuana. Allen St. Pierre, the executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said that if this ends up being the matchup for the Super Bowl, it will be featuring “the two most pro-cannabis-legalization cities in the US.” He joked that the game should be renamed “The Super Oobie Doobie Bowl.”
The legalization hasn’t been a free-for-all among everyone though.

When Jan. 1 came around and Colorado opened its pot shops, it was legal to buy and use the drug on the state level. However, it is still illegal for NFL players who live in the state to use marijuana because it violates the drug policy under the current collective bargaining agreement. The same will go for Washington when their pot doors open this spring.

The NFL is getting pressured by lobbyists to stop penalizing players for smoking pot, saying it could be helpful for getting through concussions and other injuries.

The lobbyists are also calling attention to the fact the league is fond of the alcohol industry, such as their relationship with Anheuser-Busch. They pitch Bud Light as the “proud sponsor of the NFL” and even had some ads in rotation showing Budweiser and Bud Light bottles going head-to-head in what they called a “Bud Bowl” game.

Mason Tvert, spokesperson for the pro legalization Marijuana Policy Project in Denver thinks there are more important topics to be discussed instead of getting drowned out in all the beer ads. “Hopefully there will be a break in the beer commercials for some discussion about marijuana laws,” he said.

A 48-foot-wide billboard was put up in September by the organization next to Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High, insisting that the NFL needs to “stop driving players to drink” and the “safer choice” for athletes was actually pot. A petition was launched by the group in efforts to get NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to change the league’s marijuana policy.
Steve Fox, who works for a marijuana-industry law firm in Denver, wonders since the National Hockey League only tests for performing-enhancing drugs, why can’t the NFL do the same? He could have a point since marijuana is not a drug that gives any player a physical edge.

“It won’t be long before it’s unique to have two teams in the Super Bowl that haven’t made marijuana legal,” Tvert said.

For the states where marijuana is outlawed completely, they’ve actually had a difficult time in the postseason. The Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals all come from states that have not decriminalized pot. Go figure.

“If you noticed, the more marijuana-friendly localities really kicked butt,” Fox said. “I don’t know what it really means in the grand scheme of things, but it’s a nice bit of karma if nothing else.”

Pot legalization in a state making teams more successful? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

‘To Those Who Would Call Me a Thug or Worse …’

What a night, and what a finish.

Near midnight I still had about 70 unread text messages from friends and family, most of which read, “Best interview ever!” Many of my Twitter mentions were less supportive. My body ached. I was thrilled and proud and upset, all at once.

Here’s what happened …

I spent most of the game on an island: I was targeted only twice during the entire NFC Championship. The first produced a BS holding call against me; the second ended the game. Michael Crabtree stutter-stepped out of his break on first down and sprinted toward the end zone. I was in good position for a pick until he pushed me in the back. My interception became a tip and an interception for Malcolm Smith in the end zone.

Game over. The Seahawks are in the Super Bowl.

I ran over to Crabtree to shake his hand but he ignored me. I patted him, stuck out my hand and said, “Good game, good game.” That’s when he shoved my face, and that’s when I went off.

I threw a choking sign at 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Why? Because he decided he was going to try the guy he was avoiding all game, because, I don’t know, he’s probably not paying attention for the game-winning play. C’mon, you’re better than that.

Erin Andrews interviewed me after the game and I yelled what was obvious: If you put a subpar player across from a great one, most of the time you’re going to get one result. As far as Crabtree being a top-20 NFL receiver, you’d have a hard time making that argument to me. There are a lot of receivers playing good ball out there, and Josh Gordon needed 14 games to produce almost double what Crabtree can do in a full season. And Gordon had Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell playing quarterback…

Look Out Google and Apple, Here Comes Dr. Dre

One of the nice things about being Jimmy Iovine is that when you call Dr. Dre, the world’s most famous hip-hop producer, he actually picks up the phone. That’s likely because the two have had a habit over the years of making millions on various collaborations. Iovine — who first earned a name for himself behind the mixing console, recording rock classics such as Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run and U2’s Rattle and Hum — signed a deal with Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment in 1996, after Dre had established himself as a hitmaker with the seminal rap squad N.W.A. Since then, Dre has produced Eminem, 50 Cent, Eve and Gwen Stefani for Iovine’s company, Interscope Records. And for more than five years, the two have been partners in Beats by Dre, which has succeeded in transforming headphones from a ubiquitous into a must-have fashion accessory — one consumers are willing to pay $300 for.

Now the two are embarking on the riskiest gamble in the company’s short history. They are betting that if the Beats image can sell tony headphones, it can also win customers in the record industry’s most crowded and tumultuous new sector: streaming music.

The Bible of Body Building

I look around these days and see all these 24 Hour Fitness, Bikram yoga, Crossfit, LA Boxing and kettle bell gyms and think, “what the hell happened to the days of Arnold, Joe Weider, Frank Zane, Lou Ferrigno and my personal favorite, Franco Columbo ( World’s Strongest Men, renowned bodybuilder Franco Columbu would bench press 520 pounds, dead lift 750, and squat 655. He bent a bar across his face in one contest, carried a refrigerator on his back in another, power-lifted a car, and blew into a hot water bottle ’til it exploded like a party balloon, spraying water all over the audience), and the rest of the badasses from the old days of muscle!?

Jesus, when they reigned supreme you would never hear of men training with women, not that there’s anything wrong with that (to steal a line from “Seinfeld”).    Anyway, as I was looking at some recent Facebook post by fitness people who obviously hate fatties, I was harking back to the day when I would have to search for information on weight training and getting buff.  

Image

My fondest recollection of those old day:  The Bible of Bodybuilding known as the “Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding”.  

This book had everything you needed to know about all aspects of bodybuilding. It started with basic training techniques for the nerd and ends with posing for bodybuilding competitions.  But the best part was all the pics of pumped up ‘roid rage.  i didn’t care about the actual notes in the book.  I cared about the variety of lifts and how big can a muthafucka get, excuse my language.  Those of us around in the late ’70’s and ’80’s, you know what I am talking about.  The internet was nonexistent at the time.  We actually had to down amino acid pills and buy muscle mags/books at the nearest B.Dalton Bookseller!  We didn’t have GNC’s or Vitamin Cottage or whatever other store is peddling whey protein.  We had egg whites and steaks and Ultimate Orange!  Jesus, I miss those days.  The Venice Beach days!  Those were the shit!  Not that there is anything wrong with the new gyms.
