An absolutely dreadful college football weekend. Not that any of my favorite teams lost or anything, but geez, could we have gotten a worse collection of garbage games in a single weekend. At least next weekend we get Wisconsin/Ohio St, LSU/Georgia, and Oklahoma/Notre Dame. ANYTHING is better than the crapfest we had to put up with on Saturday. For a little perspective of how many non-interesting games were going on, check out my former radio nemesis Sean the Cablinasian’s breakdown of the games were. An absolute mess. Thank God the playoff system starts next year because I guarantee the selection committee is going to start penalizing teams for cream puff non-conference schedules. I understand the allure for the sacrificial lambs who agree to the game. Of course Savannah St. doesn’t care they lost by 70 at Miami, it’s all about a paycheck to them. But as of next year, I think you’ll see these lopsided mismatches go by the wayside. A 70 pt win over Savannah St will hurt your resume more than say a 3 pt win over a MAC school. And it should.
If you didn’t check out my Twitter feed on Friday night, you’ll see there was a lot of pics and videos from Juan Pablo’s date in Salt Lake City as part of the Electric Run. I’ve never done one of these, but the so-called “Fun Runs” are becoming all the craze now, so I can see why they chose this. It was a 1-on-1 date with Kat Hurd, and she ended up with a rose, obviously. Since I can’t embed Instagram videos on here, here are some links that people posted with quick clips of the two of them:

Not sure when Juan Pablo started talking like wrestler Albert Del Rio, but he sure as hell did on stage that night. I wonder who will be playing the role of RVD in the house. Sorry, just geeked out there for a second with my WWE references. The second rose ceremony of the season was last night. I will keep you updated throughout the course of the season on information that I receive. More girls coming this week.
-The story about Chris Harrison dating Selma broke about an hour after I posted my links on Friday. As I tweeted out, there’s no truth to this. Did they attend the same event this past Thursday night? Yes. Are they dating? No. Sorry to disappoint.
-Graham Bunn’s annual Lemonade Stand in Central Park was held yesterday, and plenty of alumni shared their thoughts on Juan Pablo. I tend to agree with Will Holman myself.
-Forgot to post this last week after a few people emailed me about it. What is former “Bachelor” and “Bachelor Pad” contestant Jamie Otis been up to lately? Showing off her teeth apparently.
-I have no idea who this RHONJ person is, but apparently she has a thing for former “Bachelor” Prince Lorenzo Borghese.
-Of course we will start our non-Bachelor related links with two of my favorite people: Courtney Stodden and Miley. Yes, I think Miley is on the level of Britney now where we should only refer to her by her first name. But first, here’s Courtney looking like an absolute hot mess in London the other night. Wow. I’m sure she wasn’t violated about 10 different ways that night.
-Some comedy troupe decided to parody Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach” in true Miley fashion. Funny stuff.
-Speaking of M, did anyone catch her act at the IHeart Radio Festival in Vegas this past weekend? Yes, that’s what she wore. Outstanding.
-Since Snooki has a child, and when you have a child your breasts start heading south, she now wants a boob job. Thanks for sharing.
-Apparently if you disturb Jon Gosselin on his property, he will fire a gun at you. So yeah, might wanna leave him alone.
-Not that I haven’t pounded you over the head with this for years, but even more proof that your favorite reality shows aren’t the least bit real. Trust me, the “Bachelor” contract is basically exactly the same. So why do these people sign it? Well one, I don’t think they really ever read it. And two, because the exposure they know they’ll get from it.
-It’s never a good sign when your new show is about to debut, the pilot has already been panned by the critics, so the show decides that, “Ahhh, screw it. We’ll just show the second episode as the premiere. That’ll teach em’.” Expect “Super Fun Night” to be one of the first casualties of the fall season. Rebel Wilson part of an ensemble cast? Sure. As a lead? Don’t think so.
-Hey look, Michael Buble was once a horny teenager back in the day that groped women with his boys around. Fun times!
-Maybe some of you knew this, but former “Survivor” winner Boston Rob basically is a professional poker player. For a living. That’s his job. Oh boy. This might not end well for him.
-Four Words: Kate Upton. Flip Cup.
-Two new shows begin tonight that have piqued my interest, “Hostages” on CBS and “The Blacklist” on NBC. Problem is my Monday night is already overloaded with shows, so I need to decide on one over the other. I’ll record both and make a determination after a couple of episodes.
-So here is the racist “Big Brother” contestant Aaryn’s explanation for, well, being a racist. Y’all, she didn’t know she was a racist cuz no one told her. Ahhhhh, perfectly logical explanation. You’re totally forgiven now.
-Former SNL funnyman Andy Samberg got married over the weekend to someone I had no idea he was even dating. How many “Dick in a Box” jokes you think were told at that wedding? At least tell me the Lonely Island boys sang this diddy at the reception:
-I think it’s safe to say things are going swimmingly between Simon Cowell and his new baby mama. Ahhh, true love.
-For those that maybe didn’t want to spend 3 hours watching an awards show last night, here is a complete list of your Emmy winners. If anyone got even half of these right, you’re a better person than me. A lot of upsets last night.
-The best part about Jeff Daniels winning Best Actor in a Drama? No, nothing to do with “Newsroom” since I haven’t seen 5 minutes of that show. The fact that at the presser afterwards, he let us all know he’s headed to Atlanta today to begin shooting “Dumb and Dumber To.” You have no idea how much this excites me.
-And finally, it’s safe to say Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson had the worst sports injury of the weekend. That probably hurt a smidge.
