Castroneves Goes Down

Building off the momentum of Day One, we squared off against three-time Indy 500 champion Helio Castroneves in the Verizon hum remote control car race. He asked for the directions on “how to use this thing” and I pretended not to hear him.

I got off to a hot start and smoked the entire field, H.C. included. I snapped this pic for posterity.

Real World: Indianapolis – Behind the scenes at the 100th Indy 500

2016 indy 500

Eight strangers picked to live in two Airbnb houses: One, “The Cool House,” summered only by an Indianapolis drug lord. And the second, “The Misery House,” loaded with enough 95-year old women and crucifixes to make Kathy Bates blush. What happens when people stop being polite and start getting real? The Real World: Indianapolis.

Thanks to #InsideIndy access via Verizon, Bullz-Eye is on location at “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” so YOU don’t have to be. And if you were assigned the second Airbnb house, like our colleagues from Busted Coverage and Coed, a couch in The Cool House would look really good to you, really fast.

Video: Bullz-Eye has a bro down with “Chicago P.D.” star Jesse Lee Soffer

Sometimes, you just have to “bro” for it and let the chips fall where they may. It’s in that spirit that “Chicago P.D.” star Jesse Lee Soffer has teamed up with Harley-Davidson to create a series of pop-up motorcycle shares to give people a chance to check out the new stripped-down, agile Roadster firsthand.

In this video, we spoke with Soffer, aka Mighty Bro Young, about how many hot babes he has picked up on his Harley, playing “Call of Duty” with his bros, and his secret to scoring a date with non-Presidential daughter Sophia Bush.

For less than $7 a day, you can own a new Harley-Davidson Roadster motorcycle, which features a minimalist retro design and modern nimble performance made for urban environments.

Harley’s pop-up motorcycle shares are in Milwaukee, Los Angeles and Portland until May 20th. Everyone else can experience a Roadster at their local dealership. Visit www.h-d.com/roadster for details.

  

Video: Pro Bowl running back Matt Forte on career with Bears, NFL Draft, Verizon NFL Mobile App

paul-eide-matt-forte-interview

Eight years ago this week, the Chicago Bears spent a second round draft pick on a largely unknown running back from the University of Tulane. Then Bears GM Jerry Angelo was well-known for two things: finding late round steals on defense and for being completely inept in selecting offensive players in any round.

When Angelo used the 44th overall pick on Matt Forte, just two years removed from major knee surgery, Bears fans all over the world groaned in unison.

But the player the Bears ended up with exceeded everyone’s expectations. In eight seasons, Forte became the face of the franchise.

He was selected to the Pro Bowl twice, set an NFL single-season record, and left the franchise second all-time in rushing yards and sixth in receiving yards.

In the video below, we spoke to Matt about his time with the Chicago Bears, what he remembers about his own draft experience, and teaming up with Verizon on the NFL Mobile App.

Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa is more than a pretty face with a a tightly toned torso and a voice like butter. At one point, he was a actually a real dude, just like you.

After running track in high school, Mustafa decided to try football and ultimately walked-on at Arizona State University as a wide receiver. He played in the 1997 Rose Bowl and caught passes from quarterback Jake “The Snake” Plummer.

Post graduation in 1997, Mustafa played on the practice squads for the Tennessee Oilers, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks and even played a season in NFL Europe for the Barcelona Dragons.

After football and prior to landing the “Old Spice Guy” gig, Mustafa owned and operated a restaurant in L.A., won $47,000 on game show The Weakest Link and landed acting roles for shows on NBC, ABC, USA Network and The CW.

We spoke to Isaiah just prior to the kickoff of Old Spice’s year-long partnership with Tough Mudder at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, where he and thousands of athletes took on a grueling 10-plus mile obstacle course.
