I dunno, that's pretty old meme. Seems like a joke from the 50s. Some athletes just aren't very bright. Or nice.

An Outspoken Punter Finds Himself Out of Work

He's not that good of a kicker, so this comes as no surprise. I like what Kluwe writes, it's entertaining, but the Vikings ranked pretty low in punting last year.

Columbus Blue Jackets made a bunch of moves at the trade deadline, dealing Derek Dorsett, Derick Brassard, and John Moore to NYR for Marian Gaborik and two D-men prospects.

They also offloaded Steve Mason to the Flyers.

Rutgers' coach Mike Rice Berates Players at Practice

The most abusive coach I had was just someone who screamed at us all the time when I played 7th grade hockey. I was too small to fight back, and I wanted to play so bad I put up with it. If that shit had happened to me when I was 15 or 16 I would have either quit or kicked his ass. It's amazing to me how submissive these players are, but then again they have a college scholarship on the line. I was never in that position so I'm not sure it's fair to judge them for not fighting back. No wonder so many players transferred away.

I mean, it's a nice dunk, but Brandon Knight is tiny compared to Jordan, he had no chance on that play. I'd be a lot more impressed if he did it to someone like Dwight Howard.

The problem with the Rangers is that they don't really roll 4 lines. They ride their best players, and if it doesn't work, they're in trouble. The Hawks are running 4 lines and all of them are contributing on the score sheet, on defense, etc. Both their goalies are getting a lot of time (Emery out of necessity as Crawford was dealing with a concussion).

Coach Bill Callahan Threw Super Bowl?

Well, if the stories of Callahan not changing the playbook after Gruden left are true, then the SB loss should be chalked up to incompetence and laziness, not bad intent.

Ravens Will Meet 49ers in Super Bowl 0x2F

I have no problem with anyone who humbly follows in their faith and backs it up with good actions:

Matthew 6 "Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

"So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him."

Nope, it's too late for that. No one was brought to justice for the murders of those two young men. Ray Lewis was even convicted of obstruction of justice. The suit he wore the night of the killings was never found.

He even settled out of court with the victims of the families.

If Ray Lewis was serious about his faith he would be humble about it, not arrogantly assuming that God is on his side on the football field. At this point it's worse than Tebow was last year.

I'm getting pretty disgusted with all the God talk from Ray Lewis. He may not have committed a double-murder but he at least helped cover it up. The hypocrisy is unbelievable.

If you thought that was bad you should have seen what the 49ers did to Eli Manning in last year's NFC Championship. They beat the shit out of him. Good teams are going to get their licks in on the quarterback.

Charles Barkley was on Inside the NBA last night talking about the possible relocation of the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.

He harshly criticized owners in all pro sports for holding cities hostage in their various bids to build new stadiums, getting the taxpayer to foot the bill, especially in these difficult economic times.

This is something I've never heard on ESPN, fwiw.
