Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
Hulkamania's Still Runnin' Wild
Most people may not know who Terry Bollea is, but people all over the world know his alter ego, Hulk Hogan. Hogan is the biggest name in professional wrestling history, and has been a cultural icon for decades. His mustache, golden locks, bandanas and “24-inch pythons” have been a part of popular culture since the early 80’s when he first broke into the mainstream by body slamming Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania III. Since then Hogan has gone on to capture 12 Heavyweight championships in both WWE and WCW, starred in Rocky III as well as a number of other feature films, and hosted NBC’s “American Gladiators.” In January, Hogan will be making his return to the squared circle when he takes over Spike TV’s TNA Wrestling. TNA iMPACT is moving to 8-10pm this Monday, so catch it live on Spike TV.
