I'm too lazy to make a banner that shows I beat all y'alls asses in the World Baseball Classis pick 'em game. And I beat the m-effin crap out of that m-effin Baseball Prospectus

I'm the co-champion! In yer face SpoFi!

In Fake Classes Scandal, UNC Fails Its Athletes—and Whistle-Blower: Beginning in the 1990s and continuing at least through 2011, UNC’s Department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies offered more than 200 lecture courses that never met. The department also sponsored hundreds of independent study classes of equally dubious value. Internal reviews have identified forged faculty signatures and more than 500 grades changed without authorization. The students affected were disproportionately football and basketball players. Behind the cover of this week's edition.

Martin Brodeur to Announce Retirement.

Well, it's still weird to me and none of your fancy pants ivy league facts and stats won't change that.

Martin Brodeur to Announce Retirement.

It's a shame that Brodeur's career ends the same way as other NHL HOFers like Salming and Modano, clinging to one more season of play wearing an unfamiliar jersey.

Bobby Orr in a 'Hawks uniform would like to have a word with you. Joe Namath in a Rams uniform wants to kiss you.

Having grown up in Florida, I hate it when they frickin' name a storm in January. Hurricane season ends in late November. And it's even worse when they dip into Roman mythology. Winter Storm Juno? Really? Let's have a real live woman's name. OK, or man's name. I'll bet there are darned few babies in the South that have been named Camille since 1969.

The naming of blizzards is coming from the Weather Channel. The National Weather service has nothing to do with the namings and refuses to acknowledge them. Rest easy, my friend.

Oh, and I do have a friend named Camille because of the legendary hurricane, but funnily enough, she's from North Dakota. However, I know her from down here in North Carolina.

Hey, those kids are pretty good. Some NHL teams should give them try-outs. Except that Crosby kid was travelling there at the beginning.

Marshawn Lynch's $20,000 fine for grabbing his crotch after scoring a touchdown in the AFC Championship was too light, Phil Mushnick writes.

I can't believe that Mr. Lynch got off so lightly by the NFL. Shit, I can't even believe that security didn't apprehend him and toss him in jail. And how the eff did he get to the Boston area so quickly after the NFC Championship game?

Seahawks Bottle Up Panthers, Look Like Favorites to 'Re-Pete'

I was only kind of pissed that the Panthers lost to Seattle last night because, well, Russell.

Seahawks Bottle Up Panthers, Look Like Favorites to 'Re-Pete'

When Chancellor did that the second time, it seems like one of his teammates was grabbing a Panther by his mask and pulling him to the ground, allowing Chancellor to leap over him. Was I just seeing things?
