Happy Friday to all! Although I cannot call myself an avid fan of MMA, I can appreciate a great knockout video. Below is a video compilation that is rapidly gaining popularity, as all the best knockouts of MMA 2012 are featured. Whether you enjoy a swift kick to the face, an elbow to the temple or a knee to the jaw this video is surely going to please your taste for brutal hand to hand combat action. Enjoy your weekend.
As part of the NFL’s Play 60 campaign, the NFL has produced several commercials promoting their cause: 60 minutes of daily exercise for everyday for the youth. These commercials have featured NFL stars such as Mario Williams, Roddy White, Matt Ryan, and Michael Strahan to name a few. One of the latest ones featuring Cam Newton is by-far their most memorable.
The commercial begins with a kid, Nate, meeting his idol, Cam Newton. Nate thanks Cam for showing up to their school and promises to “exercise and eat right.” Cam tells him to remember to exercise for 60 minutes a day.
This begins a hilarious exchange between Nate and Cam Newton. As Nate grows more confident in his abilities to become big and strong, he eventually aims for Cam’s starting position as quarterback of the Panthers. It is both hilarious and endearing.

Depicts the true story of the infamous family feud that lasted decades and sparked a war on the state borders of Kentucky and West Virginia. I remember last year watching a history channel special on the Civil War and was thoroughly entertained. History channel does a really nice job with all of their content and the Hatfield-McCoy saga is a great choice- given that most American’s have no idea about the legendary family war.
