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."

I had a feeling given multiple people were doing it and I was the only one complaining I was wrong, but like a true American of these times, I bitched about everyone else instead of shutting up. Be the change you want to see, etc.

Clearly Howard has embraced New England sports culture and is trying to cheat his ass off.

Ross Barkley Nixes Move to Chelsea on Transfer Deadline Day

Only Everton: we start out with the best transfer window in forever-ever, then close it by not getting a target man (winding up disappointed in not being able to attract total-ass Diego Costa on a 4 month loan to stay in shape), have Rooney get done for DWI and Ross Barkley does whatever the hell he has done over the past 12 months. It was to the point he could have gone to Liverpool and most fans would have just been happy to have it all overwith.

Justin Verlander Traded to Houston Astros

For a pitcher of his quality and age why do the Tigers need to pay so much of his salary?

I think you answered your own question there. He's been pretty close to league average the last 4 years.

What the hell gets a 5 given the numbers you quoted? Lower chance of catching it?

I was always disappointed how Lars Anderson's time with the Red Sox ended, but having gotten about 4 paragraphs into this series about his experience in Japan, I'm devastated.

"The umpires are young I believe one of them is 19 and I don't like them, as is my nature. That's the one thing that hasn't changed between here and back home. But I will say this: they don't possess the same arrogance that the bloated umpires in the U.S. display. All in all, they seem to be humble, nice dudes. "
