Humiliation on the Plains

The college football homepage at ESPN reads “Saturday Bloody Saturday”. Then it says, “Auburn beat Florida. The SEC body count is complete. On every given Saturday, someone loses in the Bloody South.” It goes on to state, “In the end, that merciless SEC claimed another victim as Florida became the fourth team ranked No. 2 […]

Learning to Golf

So it took me 33+ years, but I have finally started golfing. I am a complete and total idiot for not listening to the dozens of friends that have been trying to convince me to play for the last ten years. It is amazing fun and paralyzingly addictive. I played for the first time in […]

Speed Stacks

Are you as surprised as me that this is not on ESPN right after the poker and billiards championships? Apparently there is a new “sport” sweeping the country by storm: Cup Stacking, in which teams attempt to stack — and unstack (maybe that’s the “sport” part?) — specially designed plastic cups. File under: Decline of […]

Gator Steelers

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Most analysts have identified the Steelers needs in the upcoming NFL Draft as being at cornerback and offensive tackle, and everyone knows the team always is in the lookout for another pass-rusher to plug into its 3-4, and Coach Bill Cowher got a chance to see what might be available when he […]

Jesse the Bachelor

The fifth Bachelor edition will also follow the established gradual process of elimination, as Jesse narrows the field of women from twenty-five to fifteen on the season premiere, presenting each of his choices with a single red rose. Jesse then closes the gap to 10, six, four, three, two and, ultimately, the one woman who […]

Bad Kitty Fans

Kentucky AD Mitch Barnhart wrote a letter to Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan, apologizing for Kentucky students’ behavior on the final regular-season game. Students held up a sign with the picture of Florida star Matt Walsh‘s girlfriend, Playboy playmate Lauren Anderson, portrayed in a revealing top with CATS written on it. Okay, so I don’t […]

Shaq

He wears size-22 basketball shoes, which are made for him by a company called Starter; they are all white and finished with a shiny gloss, reminiscent, in their sheen and size, of the hull of a luxury […]

Poorly Designed Trophy

The LPGA certainly created an interesting trophy for the Longs Drugs Challenge! You really have to see the photo to appreciate it. And *what* could the winner have been thinking when she decided to kiss it?! link via Kelly

Draft Day

I guess the NFL Draft was this weekend. I hadn’t even noticed. It looks like Florida players did pretty well: one first-rounder and three second-rounders …. link via Tara

Nude Rowing

Nude, and loving it – The members of Scotland’s Robert Gordon University Crew team, who, according to captain Andrew Shannon, are training in the buff to “find out what natural assets we have for rowing.” The team, which has braved wintry conditions while preparing for next month’s Aberdeen Universities boat race, consists of four female […]

SuperBowl XXXVI

Anyone predicting a Rams’ rout of the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI might want to take a quick history lesson first, starting with Week 10 of this season. On Nov. 18 in Foxboro, Mass., the Pats led the Rams 10-7 in the second quarter and had a 1st-and-goal before Antowain Smith fumbled away the football. […]

Not So Happy Ending

The scene was jubilant — a dream come true for a loyal New England Patriots fan like Michael Downing. His beloved team had just capped an improbable comeback to defeat the Oakland Raiders in one of the most memorable playoff games in NFL history. Just seconds later, as his family cheered amid the bedlam at […]

Boxing Standards

I heard this morning that neither Tyson’s pre-fight rampage or yet another pending rape charge will have any effect on the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s decision to reinstate Psycho-Miko’s boxing license. Instead the commission will review more substantial issues, like the number of zeros on their checks.

Old Friends

Former Boston Red Sox players Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky hit the road last week for a reunion with ailing teammate Ted Williams, recovering at his Florida home after open-heart surgery earlier this year. Williams, regarded as perhaps the best pure hitter in baseball history, was the last player to hit over .400, when he […]

I absolutely adore that they call the show “Monday Night Football” even when it’s airing on a Saturday night.
