Six Degrees of Fatpickled is a weekly rundown of 6 items that I have enjoyed. Make sure you check them out.
Cooley writes a post about all the things that a man enjoys about being a man. Going to Home Depot to buy power tools, check. Burning shit for fun, check. Drinking beers around your pool watching chicks in bikinis, check. Getting ticks on your sack? well yeah, check.
And to you Chris, which pool party am I invited to? Demetric Evans is loaning me his speedo!
For those of you who follow my blog, I hope you have all checked out my link to The Fat White Guy. His real name is Rob Lunn and he’s playing professional football overseas. Besides having his own site, Rob writes for about a 1,000 others including guests spots on Cooley and Deadspin. Truth is Rob is not fat, not bald, appears to be very smart, funny, and has a good looking girlfriend (what an asshole.) Anyway, the 2 posts that FWG wrote for Deadspin have been awesome. The Nigerian whore story had me thinking of the Farley clip at the bottom of this post.
The Redskins start a minicamp tomorrow, so today was class pictures. If you want the inside scoop of whats going on at Redskins Park, you need to follow The Official Washington Redskins Blog. And how about the picture of recently signed O-Tackle Mike Williams? He stands 6’6″ and currently weighs 404lbs! He makes Samuels look like the Danny!
Everyday, Monday-Friday, I visit Sports Illustrated Hot Clicks. It’s part of the Extra Mustard section. I Love it! It’s a daily collection of links to cool stories, blogs, videos, and hot chicks! The subjects vary from sports to pop culture, tv to music. Jimmy Traina is the mastermind behind it all. And he’s a smart mf’er, because he linked Fatpickled on Wednesday!
Several stories to check out at Mr. Irrelevant’s DMV. Boog Powell, Smoot Smack, and “The jewish Jordan.”
Cheers and Hail

You ever watch TV and say, “I’d like to have a beer with that guy.” Well I do too, and here’s my list for an ultimate night out with the boys. Yes…some of these guys are dead, so I guess its an “all-time” team. Which athlete would you want to hang out with for a night? I’d like to know, so leave your comments in the comment section, or email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org .
Designated Driver – Gilbert Arenas
Donte Stallworth was begging for the keys, I’m out on that. Kurt Warner was an option here, but we’re going out to PAARTY. Not going to want to hear about God and all the sins we’re committing. Agent Zero loves to party and go clubbing, but doesn’t drink…perfect.
Bodyguard/Enforcer Guy – Andre The Giant
Several reasons why Andre is the man here. Billed @ 7’4″ and 550 lbs, I don’t think anyone will fuck with us. Andre also reportedly could drink 100 beers at 1 sitting! An added bonus, Andre could also carry 5 girls in his arms at a time.
Pretty Faced Wingmen – Derek Jeter (East Coast) Matt Leinart (West Coast)
Jeter has pulled more ass than a donkey farmer moving from Virgina to California. And his list is impressive, so he’ll be along to rake in the ladies. Leinart will have drunken sorority chicks lined up for us, as well as the Paris Hiltons and Lindsay Lohans of the world.
A guys night out is not complete without placing a bet, and nobody gambles like these 2. As an added bonus, Barkley knows where to find the worlds best “booty call” BJ’s.
If the club and party scene sucks, you can always resort to the grown ups getting drunk and acting like kids games. Little E has it all at his house. Nightclub, go kart track, saloon, and even a jail.
Bringing along Daly means an obligatory stop at Hooters. Daly also is the most likely to end up in Earnhardts jail winner. Mantle’s drinking is legendary. In fact, anyone in sports whose ever had to get a liver transplant is invited out. Riggins is the guy most likely to run his mouth too much and require Andre to defuse a fight.
The Coach – Jimmy Johnson
With this many athletes on board, we got to have a coach. Pack some Heinekens and nachos, because the lip-smacker himself is our leader.

Tom Condon is officially the best agent in the NFL, Mark Sanchez’s brother thanks you for making his job easier.
I don’t know about Day 1 only having 2 rounds. It would really suck if your team had no 1st or 2nd round pick…what’s to be excited about? And now if your a 3rd rounder your a “2nd day” pick? Being in the top 100 picks is an honor.
I thought the Bengals had a great draft. Smith was the top O-lineman in the draft. Maualuga was a steal in the 2nd, and Johnson and Coffman were steals in the 3rd.
Mangini will trade Braylon Edwards before the season starts.
The Cowboys had 12 picks, I’m jealous of none.
Packers had a great first round.
Note to Jeremy Maclin, no matter how good you are…Donovan Mcnabb will make you suck. Get some catcher’s gear and learn how to block balls in the turf.
I thought Jon Gruden was out in Tampa Bay? How else can you explain drafting a QB in round 1 when you already have 5 on your roster (2 being paid starter-type $$.)
Oh, I know why…Freeman and Morris listen to the same type of music and Morris was Freeman’s RA in college.
Finally, some Redskins thoughts…I couldn’t be happier with the Orakpo pick. I like the Williams free agent veteran minimum signing. Happy with Barnes choice. And after writing 4 weeks about not wanting Sanchez, I was mildly disappointed the Jets got him.
Draft weekend wouldn’t have been the same without the great coverage by Matt Terl, official blogger of the Skins, and Hogs Haven…who brought this behind the scenes coverage of the Skins 2nd round pick.
Cheers and Hail

When the Redskins drafted Jason Campbell in the 1st round of the 2005 draft, they became the first team in the history of the NFL to draft 2 QB’s in the first round within 4 years of each other. Now all signs are pointing to a 3rd 1st rounder spent on a QB within 8 years. I don’t have the power to research such information, but I’m going to assume no NFL team has ever done this, or even come close.
When you draft a Quarterback in the 1st round, you are making the assumption that this is your “franchise quarterback.” The guy that you’re going to hitch your wagon to for the next 10-12 years. It appears as though Dan and Vinny are giving up on Jason Campbell. That in itself is a bad decision. He has only improved every season even though he’s had a different system each year. How good can he be this year, actually having a year of experience under his belt? Playing QB in the nations capital is one of the toughest jobs in sports and the fans are the toughest critics. Yet, 81% of the fans don’t want Sanchez. Are the people making the decisions at Redskins Park really this blind to the fact that we have gaping holes at other positions. Gaping holes brought on by the fact that the Skins have not drafted a defensive end within the first 5 rounds of the draft during Snyder’s tenure? Gaping holes brought on by the fact that they’ve drafted only 2 offensive lineman in the first 5 rounds of the draft during the same time? Our 1st and 4th rounders for Jason Peters would have been a great move…but why would you want to take care of your weakest position with a Pro Bowl player who is one of the best in the NFL. I mean, it’s Jason Peters, he’s not “sexy.”
After taking all the shit the front office piled on him, JC has finally spoken out, declaring he wants to be traded if the Skins draft Sanchez. My fear is the Skins have tipped their hand too much and the value they would receive for Campbell would be too little (remember giving away Patrick Ramsey for a 6th rounder, 2 years after using a 1st on him?) And if they draft Sanchez and trade Campbell, who’s your starting QB for the 2009 season? My other fear is the Skins trade up for Sanchez, throwing away more picks.
Maybe it’s all a smokescreen, maybe I just wasted an hour on this post for no reason? Maybe Dan and Vinny are smarter than I think they are? Oh F me, welcome to DC Mr. Sanchez.
Cheers and Hail

Zorn on the possibility of selecting a defensive player: “Every indication is that Phillip Daniels is going to fully recover and be part of our program this year. That doesn’t mean that if someone is sitting out there glaring that you wouldn’t select him.”

3 weeks after the NCAA tournament final, we wrap up the 1st annual Hot Chick Tournament. I never knew there were so many people who dig Julianne Hough. She had my vote in each of her match ups, as well as the public majority. Congrats to her. I have the official “Spankbank Champion” trophy being made and will deliver it to Julianne on the Dancing with the Stars set when its finished. Court ordered restraining order soon to follow.
