"The unofficial king of sports paperbacks", Zander Hollander,: died at 91.

Before televised sports were pervasive and the Internet a nonstop gusher of sports trivia, Mr. Hollander found a niche in the market by annually providing statistics, team rosters, records, schedules and predictions for the coming season in the form of brick-size tomes he titled "Complete Handbooks."

DeSean Jackson released by the Eagles: possibly due to his off-field issues. Now explain how the Jags got a 6th-round pick for Blaine Gabbert.

Why is there no tiny li'l, red Kings XI Punjab dot covering my zip code?

The NSA has that map. Along with some questions for you about your loyalty, citizen.

Yankees' Pineda Ejected for Pine Tar on Neck

I have no problem with him using pine tar even if its against the rules

As a Sox fan I have to agree with that statement, but I felt the fact he was a mess in the first inning, then came out in the second with a stain on his neck you could see from space and started pitching well was pushing it.

Bad baseball to up there hacking at 4-2.

Watching yellow card aficionado David Luiz knock out two of his teammates in yesterday's Champion's League semi-final, I'm beginning to wonder if the Premier League needs to impose a moratorium on goofily tall guys with afros. He and Fellani on the same pitch could do major damage.

If Petr Cech is hurt after that corner kick, I'd love to see The Special One cancel Courtois' loan deal on the pitch.

Manchester United Fires David Moyes

Have you looked at the managerial changes in Argentina, Brazil and Italy?

According to yesterday's Football Weekly, all 3 sides facing relegation in Italy have sacked their manager and then brought him back after sacking the successor.

I guess I need to go back and read some more about Carter, but that article seems like a steaming pile of bullshit served up to the god of Clickbait.

We're not saying Carter committed the crime, we'll just casually point out that by the age of 14, the Hurricane had already been arrested for assault and armed robbery.
Yeah, we have a legal system that expressly won't let you do that. Was he dressed in a manner that was asking to be arrested as well?
He was booted from the military after being court-martialed a whopping four times
The Army of 1954 being famous as a place of racial harmony, that must have been all about Carter's bad attitude.

All I remember is being 16 and reading this William Nack article in SI and immediately putting the man on my "All-Time Badasses" list. I have no idea how the Cracked writer manages to go from "movie that isn't 100% true to the facts" to "rightly convicted on the testimony of a single felon who later recanted".

Bench-Clearing Brawl Between Pirates, Brewers

From a results perspective, yes, but I can understand frustration with someone who's gotten to the same pinnacle of achievement as you but doesn't seem to be trying 100%. Not a big fan of the Unwritten Rules Bouncers that spring up in baseball, but I can understand it.

If he were in such demand you'd immediately get the pick back next year. I don't see that kind of demand given his current employment status.

Burnley will go up if they win

They did. News to me: assuming West Ham and Aston Villa manage to stay up, that means 3 claret-and-blue jerseys in the league.

I don't get the "Stephen Drew costs us a pick" objection: are you a contender or no? Assuming you somehow find Mike Trout with a mid-first round pick, he's years away from helping.
