Fathead: Pistons Leave Fans Scratching Heads As They Draft 3 Guards In Draft

I am not exactly sure what the Pistons were thinking last night when they drafted 3 guards. I look at their line up and see that they are in more desperate need of big men. Their current big men include Rasheed Wallace, Antonio McDyess, Jason Maxiell, Amir Johnson and Nazr Mohammed. Many think that Rasheed is on his way out after his meltdown in the Eastern Conference finals and his reliance on the outside shot when he is clearly the strongest inside player on the team, his complacent attitude is viewed as a tumor on the team and his incessant need to pick up unnecessary and harming technical fouls. Both McDyess and and Rasheed are in their mid-30’s and the team is in clear need of an infusion of talent at the forward and center positions. Jason Maxiell is a strong talent, but largely unproven and Amir Johnson is an exciting possibility, but is probably ready for about 10 minutes of action at the maximum. Nazr Mohammed is most likely on the way out. Wouldn’t it have made sense to

Instead the Pistons decided that they needed 3 players in Stuckey, Afflalo and Mejia who all will play behind Rip Hamilton. This leads me to think that Lindsey Hunter and Flip Murray are on their ways out. What leaves me scratching my head are rumors that Grant Hill will be headed back into town. Is this necessary as well? Another 2-3 coming into town after this draft. Were the Pistons trying to pick up an insurance policy in case Chauncey Billups does decide to head out for “green”-er pastures? This was a perfect opportunity to pick up someone who could also make an immediate impact on the front line, while still taking the athletic guard that they were looking for. Was Afflalo drafted as a Lebron stopper? I have a lot of questions, but I am looking forward to finding out the answers in the coming weeks.

Fathead: NFL Legend Emmitt Smith Fathead

Fathead has an NFL Legend category. I wish the NFL was not the only category that had former player as I can think of a ton of other athletes that would make amazing Fatheads just off the top of my mind who played other sports besides football. I can see Boston Celtics fans going “ga-ga” over a Larry Bird Fathead. I am stopping my tangent and returning to my original point of this post.

Looking over the NFL Legend Fatheads, I come across the Emmitt Smith Fathead. Emmitt Smith made his name by winning Dancing With the Stars. That and he is also the all time NFL leader in rushing yards. He also didn’t hurt his chances of becoming a Fathead Legend by becoming a 3 time Super Bowl champion. Moreover, he had one of the all time greatest seasons of all time by winning a Super Bowl, the NFL MVP award, the Super Bowl MVP award and finally the NFL rushing yardage crown all in one season. You can’t take anything away from this man.

In addition to purchasing an Emmitt Smith Fathead, you may also wish to celebrate the teams that he played for. He obviously made his name with the Dallas Cowboys, but he finished his career with the Arizona Cardinals. Celebrate Emmitt Smith’s career with both a Dallas Cowboys Football Helmet Fathead as well as an Arizona Cardinals Football Helmet Fathead.

Fathead: Marisa Miller Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Fathead

I had mentioned earlier that my favorite Fathead would most likely be the Rip Hamilton Fathead. I am a huge Pistons fan, so this would definitely fit the bill as the very best Fathead, until I saw the Marisa Miller Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Fathead. If I had to put an explanation into words, I would probably say that it is “WOW!”. Wish I could do a better job with my description, but I really can’t. You will just have to see it for yourself. Besides posing for Sports Illustrated, this 28 year old supermodel has also appeared in Victoria Secret catalogs.

Fathead: Celebrate The NBA Draft With A Jamarcus Russell Fathead, LSU Fathead & Raider's Fathead?

With the NBA draft tonight and a lack of Kevin Durant and Greg Oden Fatheads to celebrate the top two picks in the draft, let us revisit the NFL draft that occurred just a few short months ago. With the first pick of the NFL draft, the Oakland Raiders drafted Jamarcus Russell, the gigantic quarterback that played his college ball at LSU.

In his junior and final season at LSU, he led his tigers to an impressive 10-2 record. He saved the best for last. In his final game against Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl, he almost single-handedly defeated the Fighting Irish 41-14 with a total accumulated offense of 350 yards and 3 touchdowns. He was obviously named the MVP of this game. He was also named to the all-SEC first team and also was an honorable mention All American.

Sure he had an amazing season and received all of these accolades, but this isn’t anything in comparison to the honor of having a Jamarcus Russell Fathead created in his mold.

Though I cannot imagine any excuse that anyone could dream up regarding why they wouldn’t want a Russell Fathead. If there are in fact cases where this occurs, there are alternatives. Maybe you are more of an Oakland Raiders fan and not into any individual player. No problem. My solution for you would be to purchase an Oakland Raiders Football Helmet Fathead instead.

More of an LSU fan as opposed to a Raiders fan? Fair enough. Celebrate your Tigers with an LSU College Football Helmet Fathead.

Fathead: Additional Alternatives To Michael Jordan Fathead Includes Gilbert Arenas & Miami Heat Logo

The other day I wrote about how Fathead should desperately be looking to release a Michael Jordan Fathead. Since these are not currently carried, I made a couple of suggestions instead. These suggestions included a Ben Gordon Fathead as well as a gigantic Chicago Bulls decal instead. I was thinking about it some more, and came up with a few other suggestions.

It had slipped my mind that Jordan also played for the Washington Wizards. Maybe you weren’t a Jordan fan when he was playing for the Bulls but fell in love with his game when he was with the Wizards. If so, you might be interested in a Gilbert “Agent 0” Arenas Fathead. Arenas just finished an almost MVP worthy season with the Wizards.

It is a little known fact that the Miami Heat retired Jordan’s jersey despite not playing one game in a Heat uniform. I have always found this fact a little odd and when I share it with people, they seem to never believe me until they research it on the internet. Maybe you would like a Miami Heat NBA Logo Fathead because of the fact that there is a Jordan jersey hanging in the rafters of their stadium.

Finally, Jordan is also a towering executive for the newest NBA franchise, the Charlotte Bobcats. He has certainly invested a lot of time and money within this franchise. Maybe you would prefer to celebrate Jordan’s post-NBA career with a Charlotte Bobcat NBA Logo Fathead. Until a Jordan Fathead is offered, here are quite a few alternatives until that day does come.
