Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Despite his six interceptions Jay Cutler has a 95.2 QB rating and has lead the Bears to a 4-2 record. On the other side of the ball, it's been a disappointing season for the Washington Redskins who are 1-5 against the spread in their past six games. Their D is 28th in the league allowing 395 yards a game proving that the only people in D.C. capable of a shut down defense are the politicians. Bears win in a landslide victory.
Cincinnati Bengals At Detroit Lions
Both teams are named after ferocious cats, both teams are 4-2 and both teams are undefeated at home. The Bengals have looked solid even though the Red Rifle Andy Dalton has been occasionally firing blanks en route to a 87.2 QB rating. Detroit has dominated both their home games this year even with Megatron on the mend, and I expect Reggie Bush to have a break out game.
You may have watched "Bellator MMA" on MTV2 a couple years ago and you should be watching it now on Spike every Friday night. It features amazing fights and the even more amazing ring girls, Mercedes Terrell and Jade Bryce. They're a sight for sore eyes, especially the sore eyes of male competitors who just got dropkicked in the face.
Well, they're looking for a new ring girl to join them, which inspired a hide-and-seek photo shoot in a bunch of lingerie. What? Isn't that how all job searches are conducted? Admire their innovative H.R. efforts and then vote for the winning applicant by clicking below:
Some grandfathers expect their children's children to inherit a family business or carry on a proud military tradition. But Peter Edwards of England had a hunch that his one-year-old grandson, Harry Wilson, would eventually play for the Wales soccer team, because "he used to chase a ball around on the carpet before he could walk."
Wilson, now 16, played as a substitute for Wales (the youngest in its history) against Belgium for a shot at the World Cup. It was a draw for the team, but a huge victory for pop-pop. "[W]hen he came on I had another glass of wine," Edwards said in a BBC interview, calling himself "a proud granddad first for sure." And a proud rich dude second.
Perhaps the best part of this story: Edwards's job kept him away from his wife for almost 26 days per month, so -- after cashing in his winnings -- he immediately retired to spend more time with her. "She is over the moon," he told the BBC. "Not bad for a daft bet."
We have to hand it to the guys at Signal Snowboards -- not only can they write a trip to Oktoberfest off their taxes as a legitimate business expense, but they also brought some good ol' fashioned American ingenuity to the beloved German festival. Designing the world's first (we're assuming) "beer bong snowboard," they hit the taps and then hit the slopes. We wish we could jump inside this video to experience all the fun for ourselves, but we'll just have to wait 'til our mountain getaway this winter:
Palmer is only averaging 12.74 fantasy points per game, which is horrible until you remember the QB carousel of crap the Cardinals had starting for them last year. Fantasy owners may not be big fan of him, but his wife Shaelyn is. She's easily an 8.5, and I'll predict Carson will continue to struggle against the stingy Seattle defense, earning him an 11.5 for a couple total of 20.0.
Big Ben came up short in the shadow of losing to the Vikings, but redeemed himself with the Steelers' first win against the Jets. Roethlisberger is maintaining a respectable 16.24 fantasy average this year, and I predict he'll exceed that this week at home against the Ravens with an 18-point performance. His wife, Ashley Harlan, is a Pennsylvania native and classic hometown hottie at 9.5 for a combined total of 27.5.
Guys love sports, and when we can't play 'em, we like to bet on 'em. Whether it's your coworkers or your bros, a little wager can be a great way to make the game more interesting -- but it can also go terribly, terribly wrong. Here are things you should never put on the table, even if you're sure your team's a lock.
1. A date with your girl.
2. A date with your mom.
3. All the money.
4. Your shirt. Don't be the guy who literally lost his shirt.
The photo above captures a celebration of Belgrade's soccer team way back in 2000. But their luck hasn't been so great lately, and fans are now in an even more fiery mood.
Players for Red Star Belgrade had released a joint statement blaming management for fiscal recklessness, poor training conditions and a lack of shampoo in locker rooms. In response, yesterday an estimated 30 rioters overcame parking lot security guards, found automobiles belonging to players, shattered the windows (nine of the 13 players' cars were "demolished") and left a shampoo bottle in each. What, no conditioner?
The Associated Press reports that the franchise is in massive debt, and "for years has endured poor results." Let's just hope that New York Giants fans don't get any ideas.
Every year the NFL adds new rules that aim to keep the players safe while still making the games exciting to watch. Unfortunately, there are some things the NFL just doesn't address that keeps ruining the viewing experience. I say fans should be able to throw penalty flags, too! So grab the pair of those yellow dish-washing gloves your roommates never use, tie them in a knot and throw them during these 10 NFL penalties that should be added to football.
Too Many Running Plays In A Row
I know it's a "game of inches" but nothing is more annoying than watching a team go 60 yards while eating up the first quarter. This is a quarterback league now. Throw the ball! Except you, Blaine Gabbert.
Refs Taking Too Long In The Review Booth
Everyone saw that his knee wasn't down. Seriously. Get your head out from under there and look at the stadium big screen or a television replay or a iPhone video someone took from the third row. My grandmother, who's sitting in the other room, saw that it was a fumble and she's been dead for 10 days. Oh crap, we should really move Nana. Read More...
It can be incredibly hard to buy gifts for your dad, but this son nailed it.
This past Sunday, a YouTube user decided to surprise his father, a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan, who'd never been to Paul Brown Stadium because he lives in Connecticut. So, the son started off by presenting an official Bengals hat and jersey signed by Andy Dalton, followed by game and airline tickets to see the Bengals play the Jets in Ohio.
The dad fought through tears, and you'll possibly do the same. (It's OK, guys can and should get emotional over football.) You might never be able to repay your father for all he's done for you, but if you can make him this happy, you're doing something right.
You've got both nerd cred and jock cred. You're basically--
A dude? I'm a dude. I'm also super into WWE. I grew up in the sticks in Erie, PA. All the other girls were doing, like, sugar-free fudge sales, and I was into electrical wiring and wrestling. I don't even know how many gadgets I had -- the Talkboy, the Game Boy Printer -- and I've been a huge sports fan my whole life. I'm into fantasy, it's a big portion of my life. And I cover sports technology, which is such an emerging area.
And now it's cool to be a geek. No more getting shoved into lockers!
I never saw this coming -- it is cool. The everyday, average person genuinely cares about technology.
How is New York Comic-Con different than San Diego Comic-Con?
New York's getting bigger. San Diego is the mecca -- nothing touches SDCC -- but it has a dirty vibe here and I love it. You're riding the subway in your costume, you're taking an empty CVS bag for your schwag...I prepare for NYCC like it's the apocalypse: Bring water, protein bars, deodorant, beef jerky and Lysol. The food there is awful.
Just ordered a double bacon cheeseburger with fries and had the balls to ask for mayo on the side.
