Maxim, the global multimedia lifestyle brand for young men, and Jose Cuervo, the authority in tequila for over 250 years, have announced plans to host the most epic parties of the year – the CuervoGames. Launched in 2010, CuervoGames is a series of live, physical challenges where teams of four participate in gladiator-style competitions for a chance to advance to the finals. Challenges include a labyrinth of physical obstacles, ridiculous pitfalls, intense dares, spectacular wipeouts, and more.
Maxim is adding a brand new element to the festivities this year- a live runway style competition with local Hometown Hotties. The winner of the pageant-like competition will jump to the next round of the national Hometown Hotties search for her chance at winning the title later this year.
Consumers can register for the Games, check out team standings and see where the tour is headed next on Facebook (www.facebook.com/cuervo) and at www.CuervoGames.com.
CuervoGames will feature free live performances by The Madden Brothers of Good Charlotte in Scottsdale, LMFAO in Dallas, with an additional live performance in Tampa.

The San Diego Padres recently announced a new partnership with TaylorMade Golf, highlighted by a piece of ballpark signage that is anything but par for the course: an 88-foot R11 replica driver along the right field foul pole.
What a great idea if you are a minor league team looking for a way to create some advertising for profit.

If you live in America, and are older than 10 years old, you have heard this sentence before. We Americans take great pride in saying it. We take great pride in saying we may not agree on everything but I respect your opinion. What has happened to that? Are we moving in a direction in this country where this is no longer the case?
Case in point: A Toronto broadcaster has been fired after he posted on Twitter about the debate surrounding New York Rangers forward Sean Avery’s support of same-sex marriage.
From CBS Sports: Damian Goddard was a host on Rogers Sportsnet. On Tuesday, he tweeted his support for hockey agent Todd Reynolds, who used Twitter to voice his opposition to Avery’s position.
Goddard wrote: “I completely and whole-heartedly support Todd Reynolds and his support for the traditional and TRUE meaning of marriage.”
The TV network then issued its own tweet, saying: “Today’s tweet from Damian Goddard does not reflect the views of Rogers Sportsnet.” On Wednesday, it severed ties with Goddard.
The last time I checked, I thought there was freedom of speech in America. What has happened to that?
Oh wait, this was Canada. Never mind then. Carry on.

NASCAR seems to be in a state of flux now that they have penalized Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick for a post race altercation on pit road Saturday at Darlington Raceway.
“If you’re Kyle and Kevin right now and having to pay $25,000, you want to know what’s going to cost you money,” Stewart says. “I think we have a right to know. You want NASCAR to make sure they have the authority. But at the same time,
don’t lead us the impression that you’re turning us loose and all of a sudden start throwing penalties and fines. We understand that’s going to happen but give us the guidelines. Be fair to us and let us know this is what’s acceptable and not. Then maybe with that knowledge, those guys don’t get in that situation Saturday night.”
I have to agree with Tony. If NASCAR has a policy, define what it is, and stick with it. Stop changing in the middle of the race or season. People have to know what the expectation is.

It’s kind of amazing to me how people think sometimes. Bernard Hopkins has a big title fight coming up in 10 days, But first, he thought he would weigh in on Washington Redskins QB Donovan McNabb.
I want to stop right here and ask the question: Hopkins has a fight in 10 days. Doesn’t he have enough to do and look forward to in getting ready for a fight without wondering about McNabb’s skin color? I’m just asking here.
“Forget this,” said Hopkins, who is black, while pointing to his skin (via Philly.com). “He’s got a suntan. That’s all.”
Wow. I guess we should give Hopkins the benefit of the doubt right? I mean, he is from Philadelphia right?
