In a string of dominance not seen since the '72 Dolphins, Keytwitty,  "A Tweep You Should Follow," just ran train on the 2013 Pick 'Em Pool. He started off the season 5-0, and kept a tight, firm grasp on the lead like a 12 year old who just found his uncle's Playboy. I caught up with the original Mr. Steal-Yo-Girl on gchat to get his thoughts on his introduction into the internet's most exclusive* fraternity, and here's what he had to say.

2MW- Congrats! How does it feel to be the 2013 2 Man Weave Pick 'Em Pool champion?

KeytwittyFirst I would like to congrats the other guys in the pick'em pool. They were tough competition but the cream always rise to the top.

2MWThis year the cream rose to the top early and stayed there. After going 5-0 in week 1, you never relinquished your spot on the King's Throne. What was the secret to your success this season?

KeytwittyOn any given Sunday any team can win in the NFL so picking underdogs was important. Also I really wanted to win so I gave 100 percent every week.

2MWWhat team seemed to always pull through for you this season? 

KeytwittyI had two teams I enjoyed picking the Seahawks and the Panthers. The Broncos were a cheat code all season. I hated the giants losing, but they always covered.

2MWAre you going to do a celebratory bull ride at Johnny Utes this weekend?

KeytwittyI want no parts of that bull maybe after a few drinks.

2MW- You now have a year to bask in your championship glory- would you like to give any shout outs on the Weave?

KeytwittyS/o to my future baby mama. S/o plus size super models. S/o the 914 and the 718.

2MWAnd lastly- what's your Super Bowl prediction?

Keytwitty Seahawks over Broncos I've had that all year.

The Memphis Grizzlies Are a Class Organization And I Will Be Rooting For Them For The Rest of The Season


(NBACharvis Brewer, 8, had a wish to be drafted by an NBA team. On December 29, his wish came true when he was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies. Mike Conley presented him with a jersey before he joined the team at practice at FedExForum. Charvis will attend his first game - Grizzlies vs. Bulls on December 30, 2013. #MakeAWish #GrizzNation

Just a heartwarming story out of Memphis. The Grizzlies fulfilled a sick 8 year old super fan's dream to become a part of their team, and all of the players rose to the occasion with smiles on their faces. They gave him a jersey, let him blow the whistle at practice and, from the pictures, appeared to have spent some quality time with him. This is a moment that both Charvis and the team will never forget, and its one of those instances where sports becomes so much more than just a game. 

Not to make this about me, but I've been looking for an excuse to stop caring about the Knicks all season, and this was the final push I needed to jump ship. I'm at a point in my life where I would much rather root for character and class than laundry by default, and what the Grizzles did here was really special. Why should I get emotionally invested in cheering for guys like J.R. Smith, who's only thinking about his next trip to Greenhouse, or Melo, who is going to bolt for brighter pastures as soon as he gets the chance, when I can get behind a team that carves out time in the middle of their season to make a sick child's dream come true? 

I'm looking forward to kicking off my Grizzlies fandome tonight when they face off against the Bulls, with Charvis on the sidelines.

Previewing The Cowboys-Eagles "Do-Or-Die" Week 17 Showdown


For the third time in as many years, the Dallas Cowboys will close out the NFL's regular season in prime time, with a chance to capture the NFC East title. In 2011 they lost in week 17 to the New York Giants 31-14, opening the door for what would go on to become Big Blue's second Super Bowl run in four years. Last year, Dallas squandered their chances of post season glory by losing 28-18 to the Washington Redskins on Sunday night football. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw three interceptions that night, including a game sealing pick by linebacker Rob Jackson on a lob with just minutes to go and Dallas in the early stages of a would-be game winning drive.

This time around the Cowboys will host the red hot Philadelphia Eagles, fresh off their 54-11 bashing of the Bears. Dallas won 17-3 when these two teams faced off earlier in the year, but this time they will be without their shot caller, Tony Romo, in this do or die contest. The polarizing quarterback underwent season ending back surgery on Friday, leaving the fate of the season in Kyle Orton's hands (and neckbeard). Orton hasn't started a game since finishing up the 2011 season with the Chiefs after Tim Tebow took his job in Denver.

Meanwhile the Eagles are firing on all cylinders. They're averaging the second most points in the league at close to 30 per game, despite the two touchdownless outings where Matt Barkley was primarily at the helm. Head coach Chip Kelley is the orchestrator of this highly efficient offense that's been leaving opposing defensive coordinators head's spinning. LeSean McCoy leads the league in rushing by almost 200 yards, and Nick Foles (25 TDs, 2 INTs) has a higher quarterback rating than Peyton Manning. This historic offense is shattering records left and right, despite being dead last in the league in time of possession because they've been scoring so quickly.

Those anticipating a defensive battle with the division title on the line this Sunday might want to think again. Dallas allows more yards per game (418) than any team in the league and are 25th in points surrendered (27.2 points per game). To make matters worse, the Cowboys will also be without stud linebacker Stan Lee, who missed the previous two games with a neck injury, but had been optimistic about a possible week 17 return date. Lee's absence should open up the middle of the field and lead to a big day from the McCoy/Bryce Brown duo.

The absence of Romo could lead to an increased workload for Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray. The third year back out of Oklahoma is in the midst of what has been by far his most productive season as pro, eclipsing one thousand yards on the ground while averaging 5.4 yards per carry. He's stayed relatively healthy, and has already scored double digit touchdowns on the year. Dallas has come under scrutiny this season for frequently abandoning the run. Most notedly in a 37-36 week 15 loss to the Packers that saw the team stick to the air despite a 23 point lead, only to have Romo throw it away with a pair of costly, fourth quarter interceptions. For the Cowboys to have any chance of winning they must sustain long drives by utilizing Murray in both the rushing and passing game to keep the soaring Eagles off the field for large chunks at a time.

But no matter what Dallas manages to do on offense, it will all be for naught if they can't contain Nick Foles- a feat that has been far easier said than done in 2013. In fact, the Cowboys are the only team this season to hold Foles below 200 yards and without a passing touchdown in the same game. But I, for one, am not counting on a repeat performance this time around. Foles is playing with the confidence of a quarterback who tied the record for most passing touchdowns in a game, and has turned guys like Riley Cooper into a household name (this time, for the right reasons).

Between the Eagles-Cowboys game Sunday night and the Packers-Bears game Sunday afternoon, football fans will get treated to two playoff caliber games a week before the big dance gets underway. But I think this is the last stop for the Cowboys. Without Romo, they simply won't have the fire power to go drive for drive with the most lethal offense in the NFC. Another 8-8 season for a team that's quietly evolved into the poster child for mediocrity in a era driven by parity. Watch as the Birds fly all the way up to the three seed.

Prediction: Eagles 38, Cowboys 17

The Mom From The Viral "X-Mas Jammies" Video Christmas Card Is A Certified Smoke





So this video has been making the rounds of late. Saw a few (unfunny) people post it to their Facebook walls and Twitter feeds, so I figured I'd see what all the fuss was about, and boy am I glad I did because the wife in this video is an absolute MILF and a half. I didn't know it was supposed to be this hot in December. Kim Dean Holderness just crushing the duck face pose and shaking her ass like a salt shaker. Happy holidays indeed.

P.S. for those inclined to stalk beyond just this video, here's her twitter page.

Bo Burnham Just Dropped His New Hour Special "What" For Free On YouTube And Netflix


I'm an unabashed Bo Burnham fan, have been ever since my Boston friends first showed me "3.14 Apple Pi" back in May of 2007. I've been to three shows, one book signing and have gotten to shoot the shit with him on multiple occasions. So it goes without saying that I've been dying to check out Bo's third, and most recent album, "What" which digitally dropped for free today on Netflix and YouTube (you can also buy it on iTunes). The 18 track album was recorded live from Madison, Wisconsin and it marks Burnham's return to the musical and standup comedy world, following a two year hiatus to create Zach Stone.

Enjoy!

Miggs Won The Weave's Inaugural Survivor Fantasy Football League


In July I came up with a new idea for a 16 team fantasy football league where the lowest scoring team each week got eliminated (similar to a typical Survivor pool, only using players instead of teams).  15 weeks of NFL football later and we've got ourselves a champion- the Weave's very own Nick Migliorino!

Miggs picked 13th overall in last August's draft, selecting Matt Forte, followed by A.J. Green, and just like that the cornerstones of "Richard Hatch's Nuts" were formed. The mid-season acquisitions of  the Panthers D and Nick Foles helped round out a roster that also featured DeSean Jackson and Wes Welker.

"Richard Hatch's Nuts" defeated former 2 Man Weave Pick 'Em Pool champ Flem's "Coon and Friends" by a score of 139-110 in the championship game, despite getting a goose egg out of his tight end slot (Coby Fleener). We can only hope that Nick uses some of his newfound riches on some more brightly colored animal t-shirts.

Week 15 NFL Picks Column

possible cover photo?

Listen up everybody, I know excuses are like assholes, but I just need to address something real quick. So I moved into my apartment Thanksgiving weekend and had a date with the devil (installation appointment with Time Warner) scheduled for December 4th. Now when I first moved in I noticed that there was no visible cable wire, but Caesar, the super, assured me that it wouldn't be a problem so I really didn't think much of it.

Fast forward to the Time Warner appointment and now I'm shit out of luck because the dude says he's going to have to reach out to a different set of engineers to run a cable from the box in the hallway, through a hole that they're going to have to cut into my apartment. He was friendly so I didn't rage out or anything and he gives me his bosses e-mail address and tells me I'll be hearing back from them the following day to set up another date.

Obviously I never hear back from them and my three e-mails to bruno.estevez@twcable.com go unanswered. I finally get in touch with a representative at the end of that week who tells me that they scheduled a new set-up date (without my approval) for December 17th between NINE AM AND SEVEN PM!!!! Which is totally fine because its not like I have anything better to do than sit in a internetless apartment for ten hours.

Then I get another phone call from them this week saying that the aforementioned December 17th appointment is just to run the necessary wires into my apartment, but the actual internet hook up won't go down until the following day on the 18th.

So long story short I've been without internet going on three weeks now and it's pretty much affected every facet of my life (blogging, fantasy football, masturbation, etc.) and I'm about to reach my breaking my point.

It really bums me out too because I take a lot of pride in this site, and especially in these weekly picks columns, but I just haven't had the access to make the magic happen.

I appreciate you (the readers) sticking with me, and promise to bring the heat once I finally start seeing wi-fi bars in my apartment.

As always, fuck Time Warner.

2 Man Weave Anti-Lock Of The Week (4-10) Shaguars +2 vs the dolla dolla Bills

Don't look now but the Jags are tied for the second longest winning streak in the NFL. The sad thing is, if this team didn't play Blane Gabbert at the beginning of the season they might very well be in the playoff hunt!
The Bills are a horrendous football team and have no business laying points to anybody. You can pay off your mortgage with this bet.

Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups


Joique Bell- RB, Lions- Week 14 Stats: 23 car, 69 rush yds, 1 rush TD, 4 rec, 58 rec yds

Despite having more fantasy points on the season than heavily owned players like Ray Rice, Le’Veon Bell, Danny Woodhead and Zac Stacy, Bell is still available in close to 35% of all leagues. The undrafted back out of Wayne State got the start Sunday in Philadelphia after teammate Reggie Bush reinjured his calf during warm-ups, and made the most of his golden opportunity- finishing up with 127 total yards and a score. We saw Bell flourish in Bush’s absence earlier in the season, and we could be looking at a repeat performance should Reggie miss any more time. He must be owned in all formats.

Toby Gerhart, RB, Vikings- Week 14 Stats: 15 car, 89 rush yds, 1 rush TD

Perma-handcuff Toby Gerhart once again found himself in the fantasy relevance discussion- and just in time for the playoffs! This, after the league’s reigning MVP, Adrian Peterson, got carted off in the second quarter with what was ultimate diagnosed as a “mid foot sprain.” Gerhart filled in nicely, finishing up with 89 rushing yards and a A.P.esq touchdown run that temporarily gave the Vikes the lead late in the fourth. No timetable has been set for Peterson’s return, but you’ve got to figure that a team eliminated from playoff contention would proceed with caution in regards to the ageing face of their franchise. If he does miss time, Gerhart certainly warrants flex consideration.  

Dennis Pitta, TE, Ravens- Week 14 Stats: 6 rec, 48 rec yds, 1 rec TD

Coming off a dislocated hip, Pitta made his presence felt in his 2013 debut, catching six balls for 48 yards and a score the Ravens 29-26, seesaw victory over the Vikings. Flacco made up for lost time by targeting the bruising tight end out of BYU a team high 11 times, including on a 4th and goal pass for a go-ahead score with just over two minutes remaining. He played a big part in Baltimore’s Super Bowl run a year ago, and could play a similar role for your fantasy team this time around. Especially for Gronk owners in need of a serviceable replacement.

Da’Rick Rogers, WR, Colts- Week 14 Stats: 6 rec, 107 rec yds, 2 rec TDs
LaVon Brazil, WR, Colts- Week 14 Stats: 3 rec, 53 rec yds, 2 rec TDs

Anomaly or not, Brazil and Rogers each hauled in as many touchdowns (2) as teammate T.Y. Hilton did receptions in the Colts 42-28 loss to the Bengals. Now I wouldn’t feel comfortable starting either in a fantasy playoff game, but desperate times call for desperate measures. If I had to chose one, I’d go with Rogers because he had double the amount of targets (9) than Brazil, and that’s usually the best barometer for future success. I’d only give him the nod if you need you’re projected to lose by a lot and need to swing for the fences. If your week 15 matchup is expected to be competitive, stick to the guys who got you there.

Jason Campbell, QB, Browns- Week 14 Stats: 29 of 44 for 391 pass yds and 3 pass TDs

Here are some fun facts for you- no team has attempted more passes in 2013 than the Cleveland Browns (561). Josh Gordon’s 774 receiving yards in the past four games set the record for the highest total over a four game stretch in NFL history. Chicago is allowing the fourth most ypg and the fifth most ppg to opposing offenses. Guess who Cleveland plays in week 15? That’s right, the Chicago Bears. Heading into this season I never would have thought I would be advising readers to “start your Browns!” come playoff time, but that’s exactly what I’m doing. Aaron Rodgers owners take note.
