PHOTD: Philip Rivers Signs Contract Extension, Smiles With Gleeful Madness

While KVB is doling out legit gems like his rankings of the Big Ten football stadiums, and AJ is getting actual quotes (real journalism! Yes!) from the San Diego Padres scouting department on the greatness of Chris Carpenter, yours truly — the supposed “Managing Editor” of this Midwestern blogging disaster experiment — is doing things like writing this post, which will do nothing to make you a smarter or more well-informed sports fan.

But hopefully it will make you laugh.

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the first edition of a new feature that may or may not ever return to the site. It is called PHOTD, which stands for Photo Hilarity of the Day, and I settled on that acronym because when you sounds the letters out together it sounds like someone from the East Coast saying “farted.” Yes, I’m immature like that.

And in honor of Philip Rivers getting his gargantuan new contract, I am posting the picture below, which made me laugh out loud when I happened upon it while browsing the Sports by Brooks morning Speed Read earlier today. Enjoy.

Philip Rivers - San Diego Chargers - details of new contract

By the way, here are the details on that new Philip Rivers contract according to PFT (quoting ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli): 6 years, $92 million, with $38-39 guaranteed. So something tells me Sir Philip will have 38-39 million reasons not to care that we are mocking the hilarious picture above.

Besides, it’s not like the above picture is the only one out there of Philip Rivers with a funny expression on his face. Here are the runners-up for today’s PHOTD:

But hey, at least for the upstanding, non-nonsense, family-man QB of the Chargers (who I really, really like as a player, by the way) there isn’t a photo like this floating around…

    I vactioned in San Diego 03/2009 and fell in love with the city. Although, I am currently living in Littlestown, PA and my hubbie's a Baltimore Raven fan, I am a CHARGERS's faithful fan! I enjoy listening to the San Diego fight theme song and play it when my hubbie is watching the Ravens. I like RIVERS San Diego smile(lol). Even when Rivers is tackled he has a smile that makes me feel like a San Diego winner. GO CHARGERS!

  22. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
