Congratulations Green Bay Packers Winners of Super Bowl XLV

Monday, February 7th, 2011

By now most of you know that the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XLV. A big congrats to those guys! Aaron Rodgers and Packers defense were great pretty much the whole game.

Rodgers threw 3 touchdowns and the Packer’s D forced 3 turnovers, all of which led to points. Big Ben had a streak of good play when he nearly tied the game after being down 21-3, but the Green D kept him down where he belongs.

Tom Brady’s Hair

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Listen, I grew up in NH and I love Boston sports teams. Everyone who reads Project Swole regularly, knows I am a Patriots fan. I will root for them this season, with their lame running backs, high speed receivers, and what appeared in the preseason as a Swiss cheese defense.

What I refuse to do however, is to praise or even acknowledge Tom Brady’s hair. I had seen glimpses of it and heard the rumors that many New England fans were boycotting any discussion of the 2010 hairdo. I feared the worst, but hoped for the best.

The Dwight Freeney Workout

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

I found this great slideshow on Men’s Health yesterday depicting a 175 lbs Men’s Health editor working in with NFL football star Dwight Freeney during one of Freeney’s offseason workouts. It is hilarious, fun, interesting, and educational all at the same time.

You will get an idea of how NFL players train in the offseason, which you can then use to add some conditioning drills to your own workout routine. The modified MH workout routine at the end of the slideshow leaves something to be desired, but the slidehow itself is worth your time.

Who is Dwight Freeney?

Dwight Freeney is a 6’1″ 270-pound, Pro Bowl defensive end and all-time sack leader for the Indianapolis Colts. He is powerful, explosive, fast, and generally pretty intimidating. Peep the slidehow:

2010 NFL Quarterback Rankings

Peyton Manning Trophy
Peyton “The Man”-ning

I have fun watching football each season, and I’m sure some of you do too. Just wanted to point out that ESPN has a 2010 Quarterback Rankings article up. At the end of the article you can rank the quarterbacks yourself.

For those who feel inclined, go ahead an comment on the ESPN post and let me know who you think the best quarterbacks are. Here, I’ll post my completely unresearched full rankings from what I can remember about last year and the 2010 preseason off the top of my head.

The Project Swole 2010 NFL Quarterback Rankings

  1. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts

    I’m a Patriots fan but I can’t dispute that Peyton is probably the best NFL quarterback to ever play the game. I’m sure he’ll win at least one or two more Superbowls before he’s done. This year his team is even better than last year, if that’s possible. I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t toss 40+ touchdowns and win nearly every game in 2010.

Meditation with NFL Running Back Ricky Williams

Friday, June 11th, 2010

You might think it’s kookie or wacky if you’ve never put any time into learning about the benefits of meditation. I am here to tell you now, that judging or making assumptions about things before you really understand them, is totally ignorant. I implore you now to open your mind and be introspective.

Today I want you to read an article posted on ESPN about meditating with Ricky Williams – the running back for the Miami Dolphins.

Dabigatran, Childhood Obesity, and the Patriots

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Here’s some recent health news for the day.

Dabigatran – a Potential Alternative to Warfarin

In an issue that is close to my own heart, there may be a new, better medication for controlling chronic blood clots. The drug, called Dabigatran Etexilate, is just as effective at controlling clots as Warfarin/Coumadin, but is far easier to manage.

Regarding Dabigatran, Dr. Sam Schulman of McMaster University and the Henderson Research Center in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada said this:

“For patients and health-care providers, Dabigatran is a far more convenient drug than Warfarin because it has no known interactions with foods and minimal interactions with other drugs and therefore does not require routine blood-coagulation testing.”
