It’s not just any Friday, SOA Fanatics, it’s the last Friday of the month! A week from today, on our next SOA Fanatic Friday Week in Review, it’ll be July already! If you’re new to our page, every Friday, we get together and go over everything we’ve done this week, just in case you missed any of our awesome Sons of Anarchy discussions for the week. We covered so much this week, so pay attention – you’ll find everything we discussed right here on the SOA Fanatic Friday Week in Review!
For being one of the youngest members of the Sons of Anarchy cast, Abel Teller (Evan/Ryder Londo) was easily one of the more pivotal characters in regards to the story line of the series. He laid the foundation for what would eventually become of grandma Gemma (Teller-Morrow, Katey Sagal), not to mention how he contributed to Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam)’s character and his battle between being a father and being an outlaw.
The video we’re sharing with you today really does prove that its all about the little things in life. A biker rolls up on a minivan, where a young boy sits with his mom. The young boy waves, obviously enamored by the biker and his motorcycle. After a few seconds, the biker motions to have mom roll down the boy’s window, and what comes next is the funniest and most heartwarming thing we’ve seen in a while.

Sons of Anarchy Season 1, Episode 12: The Sleep Of Babies
The video we have today is going to be especially helpful for those who own the heavier motorcycles on the market. It’s happened to the best of bikers; one minute your bike is up and standing proud, and the next, it’s helplessly laying on it side waiting to be rescued and returned to its normal resting state. Sometimes, you’ll lose control of it while riding, sometimes it’ll get knocked over by others not paying attention, crap happens.
We really love stores such as this one! When it comes to the open roads, truckers and bikers have similar experiences. Traffic tends to ignore them – cut them off, not care that they’re right there, on the road, with the same objective as everyone else – to get to their destination safely. Knowing that, the trucker we have in the video today steps up to the plate, and helps a lady on a motorcycle navigate through some pretty fierce traffic.
We know you SOA Fanatics love you some David Labrava (Happy Lowman, Sons of Anarchy)! That’s why today, we’re giving you a gallery of the Sons of Anarchy hottie! It’s really no stretch to say that the Sons of Anarchy series had more than its fair share of eye candy, and it’s certainly not a lie to say we love to share that eye candy with all of you!
So we’ve found the perfect pooch, appropriately named Jax, who just loves Sons of Anarchy. He is so into the show, that he has to sing along to “This Life”, the Sons of Anarchy theme song, every time it plays. He may be a more die hard Sons of Anarchy fan than any of us, and we don’t know about you, but we might be okay with that! We’ve got video that shows Jax the dog singing along to the theme song, and it’s one of the coolest things we’ve ever seen!
Every season, Sons of Anarchy released a promo video for television ahead of the season’s premiere. Every season had one, and it aired like a commercial on television for weeks before the seasons started. There is one in particular, that’s stuck with us the longest, and to be fair, it’s because it had us guessing for the longest. The Sons of Anarchy season 6 promo video, where the guys calmly go riding alongside an exploding wall of portraits, is our favorite one of all.
During Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy, Executive Producer Kurt Sutter made it a point to do pre-episode interviews with his cast members, naming the series “Before The Anarchy”. He conducted interviews with all of the major game players – Ryan Hurst (Harry “Opie” Winston), Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow), Kim Coates (Alexander “Tig” Trager), and more. Today, we’ve found a Before The Anarchy interview with Sons of Anarchy’s Wendy Case (Drea De Matteo) and Margaret Murphy (McNally Sagal).
Oh yeah, you read that right. There’s a cat named Garfield- who is the coolest biker cat we’ve ever seen – and he just loves to go on motorcycle rides. He’s even fully equipped, with his leash that keeps him safely on the handlebars and attached to his master, and goggles that protect his eyes from wind and debris while riding. He calmly sits atop the bike, just enjoying every minute he has while out on the motorcycle.
Get the tissues ready for this one – and prepare yourself for some major Sons of Anarchy spoilers! Consider that your heads up. xHeather360x has outdone herself again, with Iridescent, a seriously depressing tribute to Sons of Anarchy’s Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz (Theo Rossi). Juice was the loner of SAMCRO – the MC was his family, and he literally had nobody else.

There’s finally a new project in the works for Sons of Anarchy alum Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow), and it comes in the shape and size of the animated television series, Trollhunters. Based on the novel by Director Guillermo Del Toro and Author Daniel Kraus, Trollhunters, is a new Nextflix Original Series set to debut later this year. Much like the book, the series will also be overseen by Del Toro.
Every day we hear horror stories of drivers cutting bikers off in traffic. The roads are the most dangerous for those travelling on two wheels instead of four, and why? Because drivers behind the steering wheel of a car do not see them, plain and simple. The woman in today’s video sets an example of herself, when she decides to prove exactly why drivers don’t notice bikers on the road. He revvs his bike to get her attention, then he totally lets loose on her!
There’s a whole ton of Sons of Anarchy birthdays this month! We have celebrated the birthday’s of Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice”Ortiz), his adorable Son Kane Rossi, and Ryan Hurst (Harry “Opie” Winston), and today we get to celebrate the birthday of Sons of Anarchy’s very own Maggie Siff (Tara Knowles-Teller)! On June 21, 1974, Maggie was born in the Bronx, NYC, NY. That means that today, she celebrates 42 amazing years!
As we all know, yesterday was Father’s Day. A day to celebrate all of the dads – old dads or young dads, new dads or experienced dads, step-dads, granddads, and father-figures alike. The Sons of Anarchy series was heavily influenced by a father-son relationship – Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam) lived his entire life trying to honor his father, John Teller (Nicholas Guest/Victor Newmark)’s, legacy and balancing his time between being a dad himself as well as an outlaw.
Do you remember back to Season 4, when Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam) and the guys were seen in the very first episode, leaving prison after having been hauled away by ATF at the close of Season 3? We do know that Jax came back home with scars from having been shivved in the joint, but we were only left to assume that it was Russians who put the hit out on Jax, as we never saw the incident happen.
In what is probably the most honorable thing we’ve ever seen a Hollywood actor do, this past weekend Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) spent the entire weekend back in Houston, TX – this time for Comicpalooza – which we have dubbed the Space City Comic Con do-over. He promised fans he would make it up to them, after many at the Space City Comic Con were unable to have their VIP tickets honored and missed out on their big chance to meet him – and he more than kept his promise at Comicpalooza!
40 years ago today, the man who came to be Sons of Anarchy’s Harry “Opie” Winston was born in Santa Monica, CA. Born to parents Rick Hurst and Candace Kaniecki, Ryan Hurst grew up to be a talented and skillful actor, not only starring in Sons of Anarchy, but also Remember The Titans, Rango, We Were Soldiers, and Outsiders, plus many, many more.
Dance, SOA Fanatics, because it’s Friday again! If you’re new to our page, every Friday, we get together and go over everything we’ve done this week, just in case you missed any of our awesome Sons of Anarchy discussions for the week. We covered so much this week, so pay attention – you’ll find everything we discussed right here on the SOA Fanatic Friday Week in Review!
Admittedly, Sons of Anarchy was a devastatingly deep, darkly emotional, twisted up show, and with a series that has those words as a descriptive, humor is almost required. We’ve managed to find a video of some of the Sons of Anarchy humor clips, because while Executive Producer Kurt Sutter knew how to pull of dark and twisty, he also knew how to pull of funny.
If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Sons of Anarchy Executive Producer Kurt Sutter was a stickler for details. He wanted everything to be perfect, to be executed flawlessly, and for everything to match up impeccably. This all stood true for the series, even within the soundtrack – so much so that the songs held a lyrical tone, and matched up lyrically with what was happening within the scenes. Take a look at seven Sons of Anarchy songs that prove how much of a perfectionist Kurt Sutter really is. Heads up
there’s some spoilers below, if you haven’t made it to the final season yet.
Do you know how many times Chibs (Telford, Tommy Flanagan) actually says “Jackie Boy” throughout the Sons of Anarchy series? We’re asking for a friend. Haha! No, seriously, we really have no idea at all how many times Chibs uses the term of endearment to address SAMCRO brethren Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam), but we’ve found a hilarious montage of Chibs saying “Jackie Boy” throughout the show! The guy who made this is our hero!
Technology is seriously an amazing thing. We’ve discovered today, what technology has done to motorcycles – and jet skis alike – and that result is the Biski. It really is part motorcycle and part jet ski. Can you imagine…you’re looking forward to taking your motorcycle out for a nice ride….on the water? How freakin cool is it? The Biski will totally blow your mind.
There really is no question as to why we can’t get enough of Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax Teller, Charlie Hunnam – as one of you incredible fans pointed out earlier this week, he hit the DNA jackpot. He’s gorgeous, sexy, charming, intellectual, and classy as they come. He is as beautiful inside as he is out; he really is the full package.

Sons of Anarchy Season 3, Episode 4: Home
Did you ever want to listen to Sons of Anarchy Executive Producer Kurt Sutter muse about being a writer, dish on why he’s socially awkward, explain what it’s like to play an anti-hero, and if that wasn’t enough, admit how he felt about allowing his own character to be gang-banged on TV? If so, then we’ve found the perfect interview for you today.
Kim Coates (Alexander “Tig” Trager, Sons of Anarchy) might be a little more than on the strange side, but there is something about the man that just exemplifies hotness. Maybe it’s his baby blues, maybe it’s his crazy hair. Maybe it’s the fact that he always speaks his mind, or the fact that he’s one hell of an actor. Maybe it’s all of those things combined. But let’s admit it, Kim is one sexy man.
As we speak, I am formulating ideas for my Sons of Anarchy tattoo. I have 15 tattoos now, and not a single one is a Sons of Anarchy tribute, because to me, that will be my best and most important tattoo, and I want it executed perfectly, just like these 10 people in our gallery have today. I will never lose appreciation for all of the Sons of Anarchy tattoos I have seen, and today, we have 10 fresh tattoos done in honor of Sons of Anarchy.
Second Chance Motorcycle Club out of Iowa is not quite like the other motorcycle clubs we’ve come to know, and they’re the polar opposite of what we know SAMCRO to be. They’re the oldest sober motorcycle club known – and they’re making efforts within their community to host alcohol and drug free events for residents to participate in. The Second Chance MC consists of roughly 17 members, who have 2 things in common – they love motorcycles, and have struggled with addiction in the past.
Maggie Siff (Tara Knowles-Teller, Sons of Anarchy) was working double time in 2013, between her major role in Sons and a drama film named “Concussion“. She starred alongside actress Robin Weigert (Lawyer Ally Lowen, Sons of Anarchy) in both productions. Having been given a 4.5 Star rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Concussion tells the story of how Abby Abelman (Weigert), a middle-aged lesbian housewife, ends up seeking satisfaction as a high-end escort, after a blow to the head.
Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz, Sons of Anarchy) has left his current agent, Green & Associates, who stood by his side for seven long Sons of Anarchy seasons, and has signed with a new agency, CAA. This is one of the many changes for the 41 year old actor – he has recently kick-started his own films productions company, Dos Dudes Pictures, as well as taken on some really different roles.
Sons of Anarchy fans in Houston, TX are getting a second chance to meet and greet with Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller), after the debacle that ended up being Space City Comic Con. Charlie promised fans he’d be making up the mess of Space City Comic Con to them, and he’s kept his word – he’s returning to Houston for a second time in less than a month, June 17th-19th for ComicPalooza.
Brandilyn Spiva of Independence, MO is living a wife’s worst nightmare. She was set to wed her fiancee, 31 year old Gabriel Spiva, when a tragic motorcycle crash took his life just hours before their wedding. That Friday night, Gabriel celebrated with friends and family at his bachelor party, and early on Saturday, mere hours before he was to say his I do’s, he lost his life in the tragic accident.
We only wish we were nearly as cool as this biker toddler – he very well could be a glimpse into the very near future for Sons of Anarchy’s Abel Teller (Evan/Ryder Londo) or Thomas Teller (Sophia/Victoria Markov). He’s got the baddest chopper motorcycle and the ultimate MC swag with his little skull mask, his Harley Davidson do-rag, his little helmet, and his little biker jeans. He’s the cutest little biker ever!
We seriously don’t see enough Jimmy Smits (Nero Padilla, Sons of Anarchy) over here on SOA Fanatic, and today we’re going to make that change. He is one hell of a man, and one hell of an actor, and we need more Jimmy Smits here. We have found a video from the archives – an interview Jimmy gave to The Examiner back in 2012, at the Sons of Anarchy premiere event.
Do you remember Sons of Anarchy Season 1, Episode 3: “Fun Town”? Cycle of Pain did a song called “5” for the episode, that played while SAMCRO raided a religious house looking for Johnny Yates (Brett Wagner), the man accused of raping a 13 year old girl at the Charming carnival. Yates was a former Nord, though according to Ernest Darby (Mitch Pileggi), he didn’t fit in well.
YouTuber TheSPNWorld is definitely one of our favorite YouTubers, and they’ve created “Nothing Left To Say”, a tribute video in which we seriously have a lot to say about. We really love the tribute videos we find on YouTube, and we never fail to be impressed with the skill and quality that goes into these videos. “Nothing Left To Say” is guaranteed to bring back all of the feels the Sons of Anarchy series gave us over seven seasons.
Sons of Anarchy may have had tons of eye candy for the ladies, but let’s be fair. The guy fans had their fair share of on-screen deliciousness with all of the ladies – between the porn star girls and the regular cast of ladies – there was plenty of yummy throughout the Sons of Anarchy series. Today, we’ll be highlighting how Maggie Siff (Tara Knowles-Teller), brought her amazing level of sexy to the show, with a too hot photo gallery of the actress.
It’s Friday once again, SOA Fanatics! If you’re new to our page, every Friday, we get together and go over everything we’ve done this week, just in case you missed any of our awesome Sons of Anarchy and motorcycle discussions for the week. We covered so much this week, so pay attention – you’ll find everything we discussed right here on the SOA Fanatic Friday Week in Review!

Sons of Anarchy Season 7, Episode 11: Suits Of Woe
Would you participate in a motorcycle race? Especially if it was considered one of the most dangerous race courses in the entire world? That is what the “Isle Of Man” Tourist Trophy 300+KMH Street-Race is all about, and today we have video of the exciting, yet incredibly dangerous race. Being Sons of Anarchy fans, we’ve delved deep into the world of the motorcycle club lifestyle, but yet haven’t really looked into the world of motorcycle racing.
We don’t know about you, but we can’t get enough of the heartwarming stories that keep coming from our amazing motorcycle clubs across the nation. This time, we get to tell you the story of how The Punishers Motorcycle Club in Toledo, OH, set their every day duties aside to escort a 7 year old girl to school because she was being bullied by her classmates. Audrianna, the 7 year old girl, was having a hard time at school, according to her mom.
Did you know, that back in 2008, Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) did a cameo on CBS’s hit show, CSI (Crime Scene Investigation)? It was during the show’s 8th season, and Katey guest-starred as a character named Annabelle Fundt/Natasha Steele in the 16th episode of that season, “Two and A Half Deaths“. It was a super fun episode, a crossover of two of CBS’s hit shows – CSI and Two and A Half Men.
If you haven’t yet heard of Drew Evans, you totally should get to know him. Not only is he an avid YouTuber, but he’s a skilled guitarist and vocalist, who has just happened to cover the Sons of Anarchy Theme Song, ‘This Life‘. Not only did he cover it, but he added his own twists to it – a solo and tweaks to the guitar riffs – and he totally, totally rocks it.
Ryan Hurst (Opie Winston, Sons of Anarchy) was one of the most beloved characters of the entire show, even though his character wasn’t one who made it to the final ride. While we wish we’d had him in season 7, we understand why, and it was pivotal for Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam) to be all on his own toward the end. If he wasn’t, the story wouldn’t have been even close to the same, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss on Opie.
*SPOILER ALERT* This post contains MODERATE to MAJOR spoilers from the entire Sons of Anarchy series! Read at your own risk!
Whether or not you were Team Tara (Knowles-Teller, Maggie Siff) or Team Gemma (Teller-Morrow, Katey Sagal), one thing remains true – Maggie played the hell out of Tara’s character. She portrayed Jax (Teller, Charlie Hunnam)’s old lady so well, that us fans were truly split. We either really hated her, or really loved her. While she did a ton of stuff the total wrong way, she had some seriously redeeming qualities.
Sons of Anarchy may have ended over a year ago…nearly a year an a half now…but that doesn’t in any way mean that our Sons of Anarchy withdrawals have ended too. In fact, our Sons of Anarchy withdrawals have likely gotten a lot worse now that we’re not just waiting in between Teller Tuesdays to catch an episode. That being said, we’ve come up with 5 ways to cure those nagging Sons of Anarchy withdrawals.
Ed Sheeran, the amazing vocalist who provided the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack with the unmistakable hit song “Make It Rain“, is up against some pretty serious allegations – and is being sued for $20 million over another hit song of his, “Photograph“. The tune, a top 10 hit song that sold over 3.5 million copies, is under scrutiny by a pair of California songwriters, Martin Harrington and Tom Leonard, as they claim copyright infringement against it, from a song they released in 2012.
