EAGER TO SCORE
Is this what football announcers mean when they talk about a perfect snap?


Because we're like teenagers it amuses us when we hear sports terms that sound sexual. We've indulged in this juvenile amusement on Pulp Intl. once or twice. Or maybe even three times. The best unintentionally sexual NFL commentary we heard this football season was: “Look, here's my thing—” Which was followed by silence. And we thought, well these broadcasters are certainly making the most of their time stuck together in that tiny booth.

Anyway, 1930s movie star Lona Andre, née Luana Anderson, shows some ball control skills in this promo photo we thought was fitting for today, which is of course Super Bowl Sunday. Andre made a number of notable films, including 1934's School for Girls and 1937's Slaves in Bondage. This photo was made for her film College Humor, which is fitting, because that's about the level of our sports quips. It dates from 1933.

FUNNY SIDE UP
So these two fraternity brothers walk into a bar...


Below are five more covers of College Humor magazine with art by Rolf Armstrong. During the 1920s and 1930s, Armstrong made his income illustrating sheet music covers and magazines, and later he became known as a portraitist, painting likenesses of Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo, and Boris Karloff, among others. He also worked in advertising for RCA, and was a sought after calendar artist. We’ll have more from him soon, and you can see our previous post of five College Humor covers here

History Rewind
The headlines that mattered yesteryear.
April 19
1927—Mae West Sentenced to Jail
American actress and playwright Mae West is sentenced to ten days in jail for obscenity for the content of her play Sex. The trial occurred even though the play had run for a year and had been seen by 325,000 people. However West's considerable popularity, already based on her risque image, only increased due to the controversy.
1971—Manson Sentenced to Death
In the U.S, cult leader Charles Manson is sentenced to death for inciting the murders of Sharon Tate and several other people. Three accomplices, who had actually done the killing, were also sentenced to death, but the state of California abolished capital punishment in 1972 and neither they nor Manson were ever actually executed.

1923—Yankee Stadium Opens
In New York City, Yankee Stadium, home of Major League Baseball's New York Yankees, opens with the Yankees beating their eternal rivals the Boston Red Sox 4 to 1. The stadium, which is nicknamed The House that Ruth Built, sees the Yankees become the most successful franchise in baseball history. It is eventually replaced by a new Yankee Stadium and closes in September 2008.

1961—Bay of Pigs Invasion Is Launched
A group of CIA financed and trained Cuban refugees lands at the Bay of Pigs in southern Cuba with the aim of ousting Fidel Castro. However, the invasion fails badly and the result is embarrassment for U.S. president John F. Kennedy and a major boost in popularity for Fidel Castro, and also has the effect of pushing him toward the Soviet Union for protection.
