A Big Blue bench warmer jumped off sides yesterday, prematurely flashing pictures of what he and his Giants teammates may soon be wearing for their Super Bowl XLVI win. Linebacker Clint Sintim, who missed the entire season on injured reserve, risked going on permanent reserve after he tweeted images of the hardware. The ring’s design is supposed to be a secret until a May 16 gala at Tiffany’s. Sintim, a second-round 2009 pick from Virginia, posted the picture with the caption “Sneak Preview!” He later sheepishly removed it, tweeting, “Saw the ring online not official yet . . . official release will be presented by Giants organization . . . Sorry.” The ring in Sintim’s picture is predominantly silver with big blue chips around the crown. It also has four footballs across the top. Teammate Justin Tuck weighed in on Twitter: “People, I don’t know who started the post of the ring. But we haven’t decided on the final ring yet”. ”Asked if Sintim’s picture was the winning ring design, Giants VP Pat Hanlon would say only that he believes the bling is still being drawn up by a jeweler.“It’s under design, I know,” Hanlon said. “I do not know if it’s been finalized.”

The rumor mill on Apple’s MacBook Pro Summer 2012 update is coming to life, and it’s none other than Intel who is doing the stirring. The chip manufacturers appear to be setting up delivery of their Ivy Bridge quad-core processors (specifically, the Core i7) by late April, and are expected to be in the Apple machines shortly thereafter — just in time for a formal announcement at Apple’s yearly WWDC event in June. If true, this MacBook revision would be a historical one, seeing Apple drop the optical disk drive altogether in favor of digital data delivered via USB (SOURCE)

The Spring Festival, held annually in Southern California, was the home to the unveiling of the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline. Based on the Challenger SXT Plus, the Rallye Redline features the same 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft torque as the standard model, but it gets a host of visual, interior and handling upgrades. For starters, the exterior gets a triple red stripe and new 20-inch wheels with subtle red stripes around the rims. Inside, the theme continues with available Radar Red leather seats. Upping the ante, the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline features the Super Sport Group as standard equipment and includes: performance-tuned suspension with 42 percent firmer front and 22 percent firmer rear monotube shocks. Making sure the Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline delivers world-class levels of stopping power, larger performance disc brakes replace the standard set. Pricing for the 2012 Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline is listed at $28,745 USD with availability beginning next month. (SOURCE)

Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss, a 16-year-old living in the post-apocalyptic country of Panem. Every year, one boy and one girl are chosen from each of Panem’s 12 districts to fight each other to their death. Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta, the boy chosen from District 12 for the Hunger Games with Katniss.
The Hunger Games arrives in theaters today. It couldn’t be more unlike Twilight, but it is a fantastic, dark, thrilling post-apocalyptic action movie that has the rumblings of something epic. To give you an idea of how epic this world is, and show you one last time why this movie is worth seeing, Lionsgate has unveiled one final 60-sec “Countdown Event” TV spot (via Facebook). By the end of this you should be as excited to see it as possible, and they barely show any of the actual Hunger Game either. Do not miss! May the odds be ever in your favor……
