Everybody loves a great comeback. Whether it’s Italy overcoming a 0-1 deficit to defeat a tough French team in the World Cup final, the Buffalo Bills rising from 32 points down to defeat the Houston Oilers in a 1993 NFL playoff game or any of Robert “Big Shot Rob” Horry’s many clutch shots, there’s just something heartening about watching someone get off the ground and succeed.
There are apparently no limits to Shawne Merriman’s mental and physical abilities. In his first year in the NFL, Merriman not only collected 10 sacks, but he was also named the 2005 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year and deservedly earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl. The self-proclaimed “Lights Out” had his biggest game of the season against the then-undefeated Indianapolis Colts, helping lead the San Diego Chargers to victory with a hand in three crucial sacks.
Like the exotic craftsmanship of the Lamborghinis Trevor Smith dreamed about growing up in Brooklyn, it’s hard not to be mesmerized by his superstar persona. Smith is best known as “Busta Rhymes,” who has fulfilled his Lambo-fantasies, adding his own wild flavor to the bevy of cars that are undeniably Busta-mobiles.
The New England Patriots are an interesting team. They’re a white-collar team with a blue-collar mentality. They’re the champs—the best team in the NFL. However, they don’t rest on their laurels. Not the Patriots—winners of three of the last four Super Bowls. Where others talk the talk, the Patriots quietly walk the walk. Where individuals draw attention to themselves, the Patriots share the spotlight with a collective cool.
I don’t know what’s in the water at Nissan/Infiniti lately but they’re pumping out some of the sexiest cars on the planet right now. The 350Z, FX45 and G35 Coupe are amongst the most stylish vehicles on sale now and not only are they head-turners, they’re great driver’s cars too.
When you slide behind the wheel of a sports car like the Porsche 911 or a Corvette you get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Their speed and poise make you feel wonderful about life and everywhere you go people stare and give you the thumbs up.
