The 2 Man Weave Podcast #19 with Joseph Stevens, Super Bowl XLIX Edition



Friend of the Weave Joe Stevens takes some time out of his 26th birthday to preview Super Bowl XLIX on The 2 Man Weave Podcast. Joe and I go full-nerd while breaking down Deflate-Gate, toss shade at Bill Nye and reminisce on Patriot teams' past. We also talk about what it feels like to fall off the Facebook grid, rank the best types of snow days and give a definitive blueprint on what is and is not acceptable when planning your post-college birthday parties.

Bo Burnham "Song From God's Perspective"



This video is from Bo's 2013 straight to streaming release "What," and it's one of those songs that smacks you right in the face and makes you start questioning everything about your life. I've been listening to a lot lately and I can honestly say it's the perfect balance of funny, smart and beauty. There might not be a smarter man in show business.

The 2 Man Weave Podcast #18 with Miggs



Miggs and I recap our eventful holidays in the latest edition of The 2 Man Weave Podcast. We call bullshit on Rob Konrad, give props to Charlie Hebdo and talk about a confrontational late night run-in I had at my hometown diner. I also give an update on my vendetta with the local deli (spoiler alert- I squashed the beef) and finish up with an in depth look at the Jets new coaching hires.

I'd Be Remiss If I Didn't Post The New Charlie Hebdo Cover





Just an amazing statement by a magazine, and country, that lost so much, so quickly. To bounce back like this is not only commendable, it's inspiring. The fact that this publication continues to poke the bear in the name of free speech and pull light from the darkness is nothing short of heroic, and they should be remembered as such.

Je suis Charlie indeed.

Kevin Garnett Grows Pair, Headbutts Dwight






First things first, Kevin Garnett is still a punk ass bitch. But the 19 year NBA vet finally put his money where his mouth is, and threw hands (well, head) during an altercation Monday night against the world's tallest 12 year old.

The headbutt heard round the world, or at the very least, around twitter, took place midway through the first quarter of the Net's 113-99 loss to the Rockets. Garnett, the perennial hardwood bully, was the clear instigator of the incident, and was tossed for his actions. Dwight received a technical foul, but was allowed to remain in the game, finishing up with 8 points and a season low 5 rebounds.

It's unclear from the video what set KG off, but judging by his reaction it had to be something major or personal. It typically takes a hell of a lot to get him to go from all bark to bite.

As The Ball Drops, Kanye Drops "Only One"



Kanye waited until the final hours to drop what looks to be the most important hip-hop song of 2014. Not only does Yeezy finish up where "Hey Mamma" left off, he got a LIVING MEMBER OF THE BEATLES to perform on the track.

"Only One" sounds like it belongs on 808's & Heartbreak. The song, which is written from the perspective of late mother Donda speaking to him, is vintage, heartfelt 'Ye.  His mom assures him of her approval of the man he has become, while reminding him to "tell Nori" (her grand daugther) about her.

It's a testament to how far Kanye has come since her untimely passing, and another step in the right direction for his grieving process.

Donda truly does have a lot to be proud of.

Shout Out To Everyone Who Took Home A Fantasy Title This Weekend!



Over the weekend I won the championship in both my big money keeper leagues (Ebola in RTTO and Ha Ha Clinton's Dick in Dead Fish). It was a feat I had often dreamed about, but always seemed to slip through my fingers in heartbreaking fashion. But not this time! This year my boys fought tooth and nail til the end and everything broke my way.

I traded Odell Beckham and lived to tell about it.  I started Toby Gerhart in a championship matchup and lived to tell about it. And I used a keeper slot on Montee Ball and lived to tell about it.

Hopefully some of you were able to use my advice to reach the promised land yourself. Fantasy titles are won and lost on the waiver wire and each week I dished out a handful candidates for your consideration.

I had a blast following, studying, watching and winning this season, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to watching week 17 and beyond nice and relaxed with nothing at stake.

Europe, here I come!
