Delonte West Can Help You Install A Ceiling Fan...: The lockout is hurting NBA players in different ways. Delonte ain't scared to wear an orange apron. Brotha's gotta work, right?

Sawx are in first place, so all is right with the world...except that I live in the Midwest. Meh.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

All those guys talking about Randy Johnson being "intimidating?" They obviously don't remember Maddux wearing another guy's face at the 1995 World Series celebration.

Or, make a little scratch off that jersey. After all, nothing increases profitability like a murder or three.

Panthers President Too Important for Twitter Critic

I'm upset at the number of people on the internet who haven't apologized to me yet as well, particularly professional sports franchise owners and senior management. These fuckers need to get on the ball, metaphorically speaking.

Completely unsurprisingly, Terry Francona does not want to be part of Fenway's 100th Birthday

Do you accept their offer to attend the company barbeque 6 months later to make them look good?

Depends...are they serving Johnsonville brats?

Arkansas Lays Down Petrino

If Petrino weren't such an absolute douchebag, maybe the penalties wouldn't be so harsh. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't seem to inspire a lot of respect from people lately.

Prep Soccer Team Punished for Doing the Bernie

They shouldn't be punished for doing the dance as much as they should be punished for actually watching Weekend at Bernie's II. Come to think of it, sitting through that movie was probably punishment enough.

Plane crash kills ‘majority’ of KHL team Lokomotiv

"Though it occurred thousands of miles away from our home arenas, this tragedy represents a catastrophic loss to the hockey world -- including the NHL family, which lost so many fathers, sons, teammates and friends who at one time excelled in our League," said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. "Our deepest condolences go to the families and loved ones of all who perished."

Jesus...awful, horrible news.
