New Article: NY Giants Super Bowl Champion Rings Leaked

Friday, March 30, 2012

A Big Blue bench warmer jumped off sides yesterday, prematurely flashing pictures of what he and his Giants teammates may soon be wearing for their Super Bowl XLVI win. Linebacker Clint Sintim, who missed the entire season on injured reserve, risked going on permanent reserve after he tweeted images of the hardware. The ring’s design is supposed to be a secret until a May 16 gala at Tiffany’s. Sintim, a second-round 2009 pick from Virginia, posted the picture with the caption “Sneak Preview!” He later sheepishly removed it, tweeting, “Saw the ring online not official yet . . . official release will be presented by Giants organization . . . Sorry.” The ring in Sintim’s picture is predominantly silver with big blue chips around the crown. It also has four footballs across the top. Teammate Justin Tuck weighed in on Twitter: “People, I don’t know who started the post of the ring. But we haven’t decided on the final ring yet". ”Asked if Sintim’s picture was the winning ring design, Giants VP Pat Hanlon would say only that he believes the bling is still being drawn up by a jeweler."It’s under design, I know,” Hanlon said. “I do not know if it’s been finalized.”

Thursday, March 29, 2012

The rumor mill on Apple’s MacBook Pro Summer 2012 update is coming to life, and it’s none other than Intel who is doing the stirring. The chip manufacturers appear to be setting up delivery of their Ivy Bridge quad-core processors (specifically, the Core i7) by late April, and are expected to be in the Apple machines shortly thereafter — just in time for a formal announcement at Apple’s yearly WWDC event in June. If true, this MacBook revision would be a historical one, seeing Apple drop the optical disk drive altogether in favor of digital data delivered via USB (SOURCE)

New Trailer: The Hunger Games

Friday, March 23, 2012

The Hunger Games is both written and directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville previously, but also writer of Big, Mr. Baseball, Dave, Lassie, Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. It's adapted from Suzanne Collins' popular series of novels, first published in 2008.

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem's 12 districts to fight each other to their death. Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta, the boy chosen from District 12 for the Hunger Games with Katniss.

The Hunger Games arrives in theaters today. It couldn't be more unlike Twilight, but it is a fantastic, dark, thrilling post-apocalyptic action movie that has the rumblings of something epic. To give you an idea of how epic this world is, and show you one last time why this movie is worth seeing, Lionsgate has unveiled one final 60-sec "Countdown Event" TV spot (via Facebook). By the end of this you should be as excited to see it as possible, and they barely show any of the actual Hunger Game either. Do not miss! May the odds be ever in your favor......

New Video: Will Ferrell En Espanol On Jimmy Kimmel

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Will Ferrell is going out of his way to remind folks that his upcoming movie, Casa de Mi Padre, is entirely in Spanish.

On last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ferrell and Kimmel conducted the entire interview (complete with subtitles) in what Ferrell referred to as "the international language of love."

Following his grand entrance on a fake horse pulled by a couple of briefs-wearing musclemen, Ferrell sat down to chat about his flick, which he considers a viable contender at next year's Oscars.

"If a silent movie can win, why not one which is made in Spanish?" he noted en español.

Ferrell went on explain how his Spanish-speaking skills are now flawless—"It's like the orange juice on top of a library"—thanks to watching about 400 hours of Dora the Explorer.

Ferrell also made an appearance last night on The Daily Show, where he told Jon Stewart (in English this time) that he learned Spanish specifically for the film.

Hmmm, maybe the guy can be a telenovela star, after all.

I hope it makes me a better man
Take a better stand

And live the phrase Sky's The Limit
