Well, it’s that time of year again! Are you ready for some football?! Tonight the 2012 NFL season kicks off with an epic battle, the classic rivalry between the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and “America’s Team“, The Dallas Cowboys at their new palatial estate in Arlington, Texas.
So, that leads us to today’s Paco Poll. Which is your favorite NFL team?
ESPN conducted a sports telephone poll reaching 1,500 sports fans 12 years old and older, every month since 1994 and found which NFL franchises are most and least popular with Americans, in what many say is “America’s NEW pastime”…the National Football League.
Sad to say that the fourth most populated state in America (Florida) could do no better than 16th most popular NFL team with the Miami Dolphins. The Tampa Bay Bucs come in at number 25 and the least popular team in the entire league (out of 32 franchises) is the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Regardless, we’d like to know YOUR favorite NFL team! Tell us below! We’ve listed the top half (16) of the most popular teams in the NFL…if you’re team isn’t on the list…sorry…but you can always CLICK “other” and write your fave in to let us know.
I’ll let you know the results tomorrow. By the way, you’ll see that the top three teams are OUR Florida teams in alphabetical order. Below that are the other top half of the NFL teams in the survey conducted by ESPN in the same order.

Let’s just say this first: Dark Shadows, Tim Burton’s big-screen remake of the cult-classic gothic soap opera that aired on ABC from 1966-1971, is a mess in terms of storytelling and tone. How much you enjoy watching this mess unfold on screen is entirely dependent on two things: 1) how much of a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp devotee you are; and 2) how much you know loved or still love the original “Dark Shadows” as a prime example of soap opera conventions put to inventive use.
About an hour into their set at New York’s Beacon Theatre last night (May 9), the Beach Boys hit their stride, like a surfer catching that big, juicy wave. Though the band’s members – who reunited for a new album and 50th anniversary tour this spring – are certainly not mounting surf boards anymore, they proved last night that when it comes to surf-rock, they’re still the kings.
Now that the Orlando Magic have finished their season in a four games to one loss in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, what should they do in the off-season?
The most vivid personal memory I have of the Beastie Boys is when I interviewed them while working in Houston, Texas in the late 80′s. It was the interview from hell and one that I’ll never forget.

Q: Earlier today, the Olympic Torch was lit in a ceremony in Athens.

In what year and in what city was the flame first lit for the modern Olympics?
They were both kings of their respective mediums. Elvis Presley was the king of rock and roll and Andy Warhol the king of pop art. And while they may both be gone, Presley’s likeness and Warhol’s work have brought in over $37 million at Sotheby’s in New York City today in the form of the painting “Double Elvis (Ferus Type)”.
