A chat with Jay Glazer, Fox NFL Insider for Captain Morgan

Jay Glazer spoke with Paul Eide of Bullz-Eye.com.

Fox NFL Insider Jay Glazer is the man you go to for information. He’s cornered the market on both the NFL and MMA and is the ultimate “information broker” in a sea of imitators.

Here’s a piece of info that Glazer hipped me to: This Friday, September 19th is “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” sponsored by Captain Morgan. Just use the hashtags #CaptainandColaaarr and #TLAPD on social media and Captain Morgan will donate $1 to charity.

We spoke with Jay about working with Captain Morgan, what it was like for him to break into TV as an NFL Insider, and how he broke the New England Patriots “Spygate” scandal.

Does your phone ever stop ringing? Or is there always some dude from some website like me at the other end? 

“No, it’s not just dudes from websites — it’s usually a coach or a player. With all the off-the-field stuff, Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson… this week has been the most difficult week of my career. I signed up to cover football, not be a social commentator. But luckily, Captain Morgan came along at the perfect time to do a really fun campaign. This Friday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. In honor of that, for everybody who uses the hashtags #CaptainandColaaarr and #TLAPD on social media, Captain Morgan will donate $1 to charity. And if there’s any on-air talent who participates, Captain Morgan will donate $1,000.

I have a charity for military veterans called Purple Hearts Homes that we are donating to. It’s a fun campaign. They came to me and I loved it. Anything to step away from all the other garbage that is going on and let’s have something fun. Sports is escapism – nothing else. We’re there to give you a break from the real world, a break from this kind of stuff. Now sports, your normal escape, is more serious than the thing you’re trying to escape from! I decided yesterday, no more serious stuff.”

LeBron James introduces the all-new Nike LEBRON 12 sneakers

Lebron James has had a very eventful summer as he decided to right a serious wrong by returning home to Cleveland to play with the Cavaliers. The season is coming up soon, and Lebron is capping off the summer by introducing his new Nike LEBRON 12 sneakers.

You can see from the photos above that they’re going with a bold and colorful design. Miami Dolphins fans will love the color choices! With bold colors dominating the sneaker and athletic gear markets, this will probably go over very well.

The LEBRON 12 is designed to enhance James’s explosiveness while combining three key benefits: superior cushioning, harnessed support and natural flexibility. It’s hard not to be impressed with the advances in sneaker technology, and Nike has been leading the way for years.

So if you’re looking for a bold, new look for the fall, you might want to check these out. Just don’t wear them with your LeBron/Cavs gear — unless, of course, you like colors that clash!

Certain things are obvious #GoodCombos, like the hacker and that iCloud he hacked to gift the world with nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande and Bar Rafaeli, aka “The Fappening.

A #BadCombo could potentially be 95 degree heat and endless asphalt. But COMBOS came up with a solution.

COMBOS Curiosities are here to test every combination available. They posses an admitted “bottomless appetite for combinations,” because “the world is a much better place with more COMBOS around.”

Relive the 90s with the Blast basketball shoe from Reebok

Reebok is bringing back the uber-successful Blast basketball shoe from the 90s, mainly worn by the great point guard Nick Van Exel, aka Nick the Quick. The Blast has reached celebrity status with its reverse contrast and OG style, and now history is about to repeat itself, because the best of the 90s is back.

We tested a pair to be sure that the 90s were as good as everyone remembers them, and these kicks stand the test of time, guaranteed to give all Bullz-Eye ballers out there both the style and lift they’re looking for when on or off the court. The Blast features Hexalite cushioning and a supportive cut, allowing players to explode to the hoop without worrying about rolling an ankle, while the stark contrast of the black and white with a touch of red really pops.

On Friday, August 29, 2014, limited pairs of the Blast (white/red/excellent red) will be available in adult sizing for $119.99 at retailers including Finish Line, Champs, Eastbay, Jimmy Jazz, Footaction, Villa and Reebok.com.
