  • Everyone who has ever been to Everbank Field knows there is a tight playlist of “go-to” songs to get the crowd amped up as the Jags attempt to do anything besides go three-and-out. Chances are if you grew up in the 90’s you owned some of these songs on one of the “Jock Jams” CDs that were so popular during that decade. There’s always been heavy debate on these tracks though: Do they do the trick of making tens of thousands of fans rise to their feet, or are they too corny to accomplish anything outside of a embarrassing memory or two? Billboard.com has decided to add fuel to the fire by ranking what they think are the 'The 100 Greatest Jock Jams of All Time.' There were five official volumes of the 'Jock Jams' series with a total of 107 songs, but this list isn't limited to those. There are even some recent 'jock jams' on the list.  Here's the Top 10:  1. 'We Will Rock You', Queen, 1977  2. 'Welcome to the Jungle', Guns N' Roses, 1987  3. 'Hip Hop Hooray', Naughty By Nature, 1993    4. 'Kernkraft 400', Zombie Nation, 1999    5. 'Seven Nation Army', The White Stripes, 2003    6. 'Eye of the Tiger', Survivor, 1982    7. 'Rock and Roll Part 2', Gary Glitter, 1972    8. 'Jump Around', House of Pain, 1992    9. 'Crazy Train', Ozzy Osbourne, 1981    10. 'Get Ready for This', 2 Unlimited, 1991  Other songs on the list that feel slightly dated at this point: 'Whoomp! (There It Is)', 'The Final Countdown', and the 90’s techno mega-hit 'Sandstorm' Since you're probably wondering, C&C Music Factory's 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' is at #25.  You can check out the full list over at Billboard.com.
  • A new poll had people rank the best ice cream flavors, and we fully expected a boring pick at #1 - either chocolate or vanilla. Apparently we're not quite that boring... More than 5,000 people voted online at the website Ranker, and Cookies and Cream took first place! Here are the others in the top ten:  Cookies and cream Chocolate Vanilla Mint chocolate chip Strawberry (Neapolitan with vanilla, chocolate, AND strawberry came in 12th) Chocolate chip French vanilla (If they'd lumped it in with regular vanilla, it probably would have come in first, but they're different though - real 'French vanilla' ice cream has eggs in it) Rocky road Coffee Peanut butter cup Voting has been officially closed on the topic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t debate below. Tell us what you think got the snub!
  • Back in March of last year, a website called Food Republic put together a chart where they subjectively ranked a bunch of types of French fries from best to worst. Apparently no one noticed the chart until this weekend, when someone tweeted about it, and now it's tearing the Internet apart. As far as we can tell, not a SINGLE person has responded, 'Hey, great rankings, you guys nailed it.'  People seem to have issues with everything on this list, most notably: The disrespect of putting curly fries sixth Counting tater tots as fries Not including poutine Giving shoestring fries any spot on the list other than dead last. Tell  us below what you think of the “controversial” Fries Chart!

  • Here's a weird new discovery about how our brains work: A new study by the folks at DIGIORNO used facial recognition and emotion tracking to gauge how happy pizza makes us.What they found is that anticipating pizza makes us happier than actually eating it. People got 18% happier than average when they saw a pizza go into the oven, 24% happier when they could smell it cooking, and 20% happier when it was taken out of the oven. However, when they took their first bite, it only made them 11% happier. DIGIORNO was nice enough to put their findings into this video below, but take it with a grain of salt - or better yet, a pinch of garlic and Parmesan cheese: DIGIORNO makes pizza and wants you to buy some. If for no other reason to just get happy before you eat their product!
