BEST TAILGATING VIDEO EVER: Two Grandmas Shot Gunning Beer at EMU vs. Michigan Football Game

19 Sep

Best tailgating video EVER

By Chris McCoy

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this is the best tailgating video of all time!

IT’S DEFINITELY AN RJP INSTANT CLASSIC!

Two grandmas battling it out with Michelob Ultras at a tailgating party is highly entertaining, don’t believe me?? Just check out how many people are recording it all. Hell, even a little girl behind them is trying to capture this moment in time. I see how y’all get down in Ann Arbor… still waiting for my invite! I’ll come party with y’all anytime!

Oh yeah the game… the Wolverines won 31-3, vaulting them into the AP Top 25 at number 22. The players apparently aren’t impressed with the ranking, and I’d have to say I’m more impressed with the grandmas too.

Did Floyd Explode on Merchant Because of Post Bout Comments in 1998?

19 Sep

Floyd knocking out Ortiz in the 4th round

By RJP Staff

The world is still buzzing about Saturday’s fight. Whether they’re talking about the “cheap shot” or about Floyd going in on Larry Merchant.

Floyd seemed like he had somethings to get off of his chest, saying  “You don’t never give me a fair shake. You know that. So I’m gonna go ahead and let you talk to Victor Ortiz. Aight, I’m through. They put somebody else up here to give me an interview… You never give me a fair shake. HBO need to fire you. You don’t know s**t about boxing. You ain’t s**t! You’re not s**t!”

A lot of people have been wondering what brought that on. The 80 year old merchant retorted “I wish I was 50 years younger and I’d kick your ass.” Watching it live, Larry Merchant’s surprised face makes you think he has no idea where this is coming from.

Floyd's face says a lot.

No one in Floyd’s entourage seemed that surprised, though, like it was planned out. Like he’d been holding that in for some time. The clip below from Floyd’s WBC Super Featherweight title bout against Angel Manfredy on December 19, 1998 has an exchange between he and Merchant that may explain a lot.

About the five minute mark, Merchant asks Floyd if he’s thinking about moving up in divisions, and Floyd responds, but begins to stutter at the end. Merchant then says to him, “You’re only quick in the ring, thank you very much Floyd.” Floyd then gives Merchant a look like what did he just say to me? Has his resentment for Merchant been building up for 13 years? We’re not sure, but check out the exchange in the clip below for yourself.
