ISU kicks Berryman off team: Jason Berryman, jailed a few years ago, was given a second chance and let back in to school and on to the Iowa State football team this year. He was a model citizen this year, but a few days ago was cited for being in a bar underage. Since his return to the team was contingent on staying out of trouble, he was kicked off the team. I believe in giving people second chances, especially when they truly realize they screwed up and want to do better, but I don't ever seem to hear of any cases where an athlete actually makes the most of his second chance (i.e. Marcus Vick). I couldn't believe Berryman's dad's quotes in the article about how he things this is a harsh punishment, seeing as many people didn't think he should have been let back on the team in the first place. Seems like his dad's attitude might be part of the reason he doesn't seem to be able to stay out of trouble.
Video of the speedstacking world record holder: Click on the video on the left of this page titled: "Watch as World Champion Stacker Emily sets the world record!" I'd never heard of this sport, but watching this video I was impressed. At first I questioned whether I cosidered speed stacking an actual sport, but if you consider bowling a sport, then it's hard to deny speed stacking fits in the category.
