This little guy is a big time New York Giants fan.

His dad may be pushing him a little hard (and sounds like one of the guys on The Real Housewives of New Jersey), but he has good taste in teams at least.

Watch the youngster rattle off the whole roster of his beloved franchise, which is clearly going to defeat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI this Sunday despite being modest underdogs, in the cute viral video below!

LeBron James, Blake Griffin will see your alley-oop over John Lucas III and raise you a ridiculous poster-ization of Kendrick Perkins.

Just one day after the Miami Heat small forward literally jumped over an opponent to jam home a lob, the Los Angeles Clippers superstar took to the air and slammed one so forcefully over one of the best defenders in the league that many aren't wondering if it's Griffin's best dunk ever.

They are wondering if it's the best dunk in the history of the NBA. Watch in awe for yourself now:

LeBron appears happy to hand Blake the crown, Tweeting (in his new, irritating, third person style) last night after watching the play above:

Lebron Tweet

Do you agree? Compare dunks now and decide: Which was better?

A new quarterback took them from 2-14 to 6-10.

So the Carolina Panthers can't wait to see what a new logo does for them next season.

Indeed, the team unveiled a slightly modified look to its logo today, removing an outline around their cats' head, darkening the shade of blue around the edges and unhinging the feline's jaw a bit. Can you even tell the difference?

Carolina Panthers Logo

“We have one of the finest and most recognizable logos in the NFL and wanted to make it as modern as possible without losing the dramatic essence of the mark,” Panthers President Danny Morrison said of the revamp.

What do you think, fans?

Garrett McNamara feels he can beat his own world record for surfing by riding a 90-foot wave. Yes, there are records in surfing ... and 90-foot waves apparently.

Hanging Ten like that is no joke, for real, and McNamara knows it. That's why he's got a custom, oxygen-enhanced wetsuit to help him if he can't pull it off alone.

The suit was enhanced with a special oxygen pocket developed by Camelback (a water canteen company) designed to hold a small oxygen reserve in the lining.

That way, McNamara can breathe oxygen underwater, through a straw, if need be. When dealing with 90-100 feet of water, not a bad insurance policy of sorts ...

According to a new report, Tim Tebow recently used his stiff arm for something other than a quarterback keeper.

The latest issue of The National Enquirer quotes an insider who claims Kim Kardashian has a "big crush on Tim,” finding him both "handsome" and to be someone that possesses "really strong values."

  • Kim Kardashian for Haiti
  • Tim Tebow at the ESPYs

Moreover, the reality star's PR team is aware “Kim needs to rehab her image" and "dating someone like Tim Tebow would certainly do the trick.”

So, when will see these two out on the town? When should we start considering a nickname of Tardashian or Kebow for the couple? A quarter to never, according to another source.

“Although flattered, he’s not interested,” this mole says, citing the fact that Kim has had sex on camera more often than Tim has sex in his life as an example of the twosome's contrasting values.

Tebow, whose Broncos were eliminated by the Patriots in the second round of the NFL playoffs, has also been linked with Lindsey Vonn.

Poor John Lucas III.

LeBron James' drunk over him was so insane in the first quarter of the Miami Heat's win over the Chicago Bulls Sunday that the defender became an instant trend in the Twitter-verse. He may end up on a poster someday, too ... though not in a good way.

In one of the most ridiculous alley-oops you will ever see - no small feat for the human highlight reel - Dwyane Wade threw a lob to LeBron, who literally JUMPED OVER LUCAS, throwing it down with relative ease no less.

Watch the gravity (and comprehension) defying clip below:

Terrell Owens, impossibly taut at age 38, poses shirtless in the new GQ.

In addition to losing his shirt, he reveals that he lost nearly $80 million in career earnings. Now out of football and running out of money, he appears desperate.

When people text him to ask where he is these days, Owens replies back: "I'm in hell." Sad to hear that anyone feels that way. But is it his own fault?

Terrell Owens Shirtless

Terrell Owens blames the media for not giving him a chance to rehab his injury, and blames agent Drew Rosenhaus for not protecting him from a bad business deal.

Owens earned around $80 million in his NFL career, but has found himself in deep financial trouble, despite never spending lavishly. How does that happen exactly?

It's not a matter of having lived too large, he insists. While he indeed racked up a few homes that milliond, the issue, he says, was being loyal and trusting to a fault.

Owens said financial advisers recommended by Rosenhaus lost his money in highly leveraged (some borderline illegal) ventures and the housing market collapse.

"I hate myself for letting this happen," Owens told GQ. "I believed that they had my back when they said, 'You take care of the football, and we'll do the rest.'"

"And in the end, they just basically stole from me."

It's a sad tale, but this is also a guy with four baby mamas and no job - can't blame your financial advisers for that - and whose brash self-absorption is unparalleled.

50 Cent reportedly won a $500,000 bet (!) on the Giants in the NFC Championship game. But that's only money. For the Super Bowl, he's making things really interesting.

After Tweeting throughout Sunday's nerve-wracking win ("just watched a $500,000 football game get on my level Chumps") 50 is uber-confident heading into February 5.

So much so that the rapper quickly accepted when a follower named MyBestAssets made him an offer regarding his hometown Giants and the New England Patriots:

50 Cent Bet

Fiddy is betting something a little different this time around.

It's unclear who MyBestAssets is, what those assets are, and what the extent of her relationship with Chelsea Handler's ex is. But she's apparently a Pats fan.

"Lets bet. If the Giants lose the Superbowl, u must post ur d*ck on the twitter. If they win, I'll post my boobs & face. Bet?" she wrote. 50 quickly went all in on that.

"Ok It's a bet. See your d*ck on twitter Feb 5. Lol" she wrote.

LOL indeed. This is definitely the most unusual wager we've heard of, which is saying something, as certain THG staff members have bet on the coin toss. The coin toss.

Anyway, let's go Giants. We really don't need to see that.

After 17 years, all with the New York Yankees, 275 homers, 1,065 RBI, a .273 batting average, five All-Star selections and five championship rings, Jorge Posada made his retirement official last night.

The catcher sat a podium in front of reporters and now-former teammates - including Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and C. C. Sabathia - and said he knew in his "heart and head," before last season was over, that he was going to call it quits.

“I want to thank my teammates throughout the years,” Posada said, choking back tears, “especially Derek Jeter, who helped me stay focused and positive. Thank you, buddy.”

Posada is a borderline Hall of Fame candidate who will surely have his number retired by the Yankees. He added that various teams had contacted his agent and he likely could have latched on somewhere, but it was never really an option.

“Playing for the New York Yankees has been an honor,” he said. “I could never wear another uniform.”

Congratulating the Boston Bruins on the 2011 Stanley Cup championship, President Barack Obama welcomed the team, with one notable omission, to the White House.

Goaltender Tim Thomas, the team's linchpin and only the second American player ever to win playoff MVP, having posted two shutouts in the Final, skipped the event.

Thomas said months ago he would not attend due to political and ideological differences with the Obama administration, and he stayed true to his word yesterday.

Bruins, Obama

Bruins team president Cam Neely said he could've forced Tim Thomas to go, but did not do so, and feels the decision was Thomas' and the team honors his choice.

"Everybody has their own opinions and political beliefs. He chose not to join us," said Neely. "We certainly would have liked to have him but that's his choice."

"All the guys came except for Tim. It's his decision and his choice."
