Rudy, Interrupted: South Carolina State's 55 Year-Old Back: "He's the only player without even a single accessory: no leggings, no wristbands, no gloves, just team-issued blue-and-white striped shorts, his No. 47 jersey and an unadorned helmet. With the pads bulking his chest and the helmet guarding the wisp of grey at the peak of his hairline, he hardly seems 55 years old."

Remembering Amare as He Might Have Been:

Like everything during that era of Phoenix prosperity, the team's plans for the future moved in warp speed. Internally, the Suns imagined a new positional prototype for their high-octane system, to be unleashed in the following season. Point center, they called it. Amar’e Stoudemire, the 22-year-old future of the franchise, was to be its apostle.

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate: A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game DeflateGate suspension imposed by the NFL, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. "We hold that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness," the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in New York.

"A Guy Like Me": John Scott on his All Star Experience. He definitely has my vote after reading this piece.

"Because, while I may not deserve to be an NHL All-Star, I know I deserve to be the judge of what my kids will — and won’t — be proud of me for."

The Hot Seat is just lukewarm now

I wish Brian Kelley would pursue one of those made-up "other offers" he's mentioned so I could go back to watching Notre Dame.

Cubs Beat Dodgers, Head to the World Series for the First Time in 70 Years

How has the MLB not set fire to Fox Sports offices? Seems like a travesty the NLCS was on a sub-par channel available to around 73% of US homes. I get that Fox is trying to compete with ESPN but I'd be livid if they were using (part of) my sport's showcase event to do so.

Cleveland Indians Advance to World Series

Yeah, really happy for Tito. If the Series does end up as Cleveland v. Cubs, I hope the Red Sox ownership spends the entire time slapping each other in the groin for thinking they were the brains behind the operation.

Blue Jays Beat Orioles, Advance to Face Rangers

I watched yesterday's PTI today at lunch. They picked the Orioles because of:

A. Britton
B. Showalter's managerial acumen

Sam Allardyce: Ex-England boss says entrapment has won

The fallout continues. A Barnsley assistant has been let go, QPR's manager has been implicated and, prepare your shocked face for this, Massimo Cellino isn't completely clean!
