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.

Coach Bill Callahan Threw Super Bowl?: Former Oakland Raider players, Tim Brown and Jerry Rice, claim that coach Bill Callahan threw Super Bowl XXXVII against Tampa Bay because was still miffed at the Raiders for trading coach John Gruden to the Buccaneers.

Australia's Mitchell Johnson has something against the Fox Sports commentary guys. (autoplaying video on the page, but it's the video you want to watch)

Owy. It was bowled by Varun Aaron, not one of the usual Indian spin bowlers. His bowls have been clocked in at the mid-90s miles per hour.

What happened to India during this test series? They looked pretty good in the first two tests and then completely disappeared for the last two tests. There's one more test match to go and maybe Ishant Sharma will be back for that one.

Life is good for Mr. Janus. Congrats!

I had a girlfriend during my Chicago daze that lived on Addison, pretty much right next door to Wrigley. We used to sit on the deck thingy that hung out from their second floor apartment and hassle the peanut vendor guy ("CHEAPER ON THE OUTSIDE!!") until he threw a bag up to us. The roar of the crowd used to just kind of hang on the muggy July night air.

Yup, it's the '70s all over again when it comes to shorts. It's pretty funny actually. The other day, a co-worker was complaining about the latest trend of jeans cut-off so short that the pockets protruded from the bottom of them. My reaction was, "OH FUCK, THE 1970S ARE BACK! WATCH OUT FOR THE GRAND FUNK REUNION!"

beaverboard: I was just in your paradise this past weekend. You can't beat those redneck southern outer banks beaches in North Carolina. Hope you like homemade tattoos so randomly placed that you may think you are talking to GG Allin.

Once again, Cowherd can't stop talking about how soft European players are and how tough all the American players are. Methinks the boy doth protest too much.

Tim Lincecum Throws 2nd No-Hitter Against Padres

Soooo...where does this put The Freak in the HOF hunt? Multiple Cy Youngs, multiple no-hitters, a World Series ring, All Star appearances. This is also the first multiple no-hitters by a Giants pitcher since Christy Mathewson about 110 years ago.
