Sonny Barger Cameo On Sons Of Anarchy

Sonny Barger Cameo On Sons Of Anarchy - This Tuesday, an icon of the Hells Angel Motorcycle Club will make an appearance on the final episode of Sons of Anarchy, the FX Channel's number-one viewed drama.

Barger, who was a founding member of the Oakland Chapter of the Hells Angels, will have his cameo role as the series finishes its third season; it was also announced last month that the series that tells the story of SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original) will continue for a fourth season in 2012.

During Tuesday's SOA finale (Nov. 30), Barger will play a character named "Lenny the Pimp" Janowitz, who, like a reflection of Barger's real life, is a founding member of the fictional Sons of Anarchy MC.

During a recent interview, Barger, now residing in Arizona, remarked on Sons of Anarchy.

Sonny Barger says: "We watch it every week. It's a nice show and it seems like everyone likes it. But it's nowhere near my everyday life."

Kurt Sutter, the creator of Sons of Anarchy who also plays the role of "Big Otto" Delaney, an incarcerated SOA member, spent time with a motorcycle outlaw gang as research for the series.

Sutter had never approached Barger during his research, but later heard through mutual friends in the Hells Angels that Sonny was a fan. Soon Barger agreed to appear in the series, where he plays another incarcerated member who speaks to "Big Otto" in Tuesday's final SOA episode.

"Lenny the Pimp" is locked up on charges of allegedly killing three ATF agents in the series. While filming the part a few months ago, Sutter said Barger's scene came out great, and the Hells Angels man had a "dry sense of humor " that the series "got to play with that a little bit."

Barger reported he enjoyed filming, but the process took many hours due to the script: "We had to redo it a few times," Barger said of the comical script.

This third season of Sons of Anarchy was based around the fictional outlaw motorcycle club traveling to Belfast to search for Jax Teller's kidnapped son Abel. Though not as popular as Season 2, this year's series' allowed Jax to delve deeper into learning about his father and SOA co-found, John Teller.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
