What's in a shirt?: "With financial fair play forcing clubs worldwide to maximize their revenue streams, the once-humble kit deal is now more important than ever before. What used to be a local, pragmatic endeavor - you sponsor it, we wear it - has become a global statement of commercial intent."

Concussions last longer than they used to: because the media reports on them. Thus spake Marvin Lewis, who knows about head cases.

"How Rebounds Work": stat-porn from Grantland.

The league's tracking system not only logs locations for every missed shot, it also charts the locations of their subsequent rebounds. In turn, we can map out the spatial relationships between shot locations and rebound locations with unprecedented depth and clarity. We can uncover the fundamental facts about rebounding that until very recently have been impossible to get to.

Giants Win World Series

he plays against the data for an entire season which gets them to game 7 in the World Series

That is certainly one way of looking at it. Another would be: he stops touching the stove right before his hand gets burned badly.

he earned the win on the strength of Troy O'Leary's home run.

Your memory is going: Troy O'Leary's two homes runs (generating 7 RBI).

this poor Chevy executive is the World Series LVP (Least Valuable Pitchman)

Erin Andrews is staring a hole in Rikke Wilde*, thinking, "If he would just listen to me about probiotics!"

* Is that his Chippendale's name or something?

"[She] wouldn't be able to handle it It's nothing against you personally but all the time I'm alive, a woman will never referee in my league."

Nothing against you, it's more an issue with the 50% of the world that shares the same gender as you.

What's in a shirt?

Raised collars you can pop? Pass. Just the simple v-neck collar, thanks.

While I had to hold in a gag when Liverpool's third jersey, awful enough in design, also added a collar as you scrolled, without collars you can pop we don't get this.

Wait, Pueblo, CO isn't a hot-bed of learning and culture? Why did all of my childhood reading material come from there then?

Looking at this in a normal browser instead of a mobile/ tablet, the scroll wheel thing is actually pretty cool.

PGA Exec Calls Ian Poulter 'Little School Girl'

Totally unacceptable: the PGA isn't supposed to acknowledge the existence of women. The idea they exist and have opinions is abhorrent.

If you cover soccer for the MLS, try not to have any opinions. The article asks if this is what Don Garber meant when he said,

"I do not only ask, I insist that all those people who are paid to work in the sport, whether that's an MLS employee, an MLS coach, or whether it's a coach for the U.S. national team, they align with the vision that has been established by the leaders in the sport."

Reading that only deepens my opinion he's a very small, very insecure moron.

Some Google VP wasn't informed no one cares who does it second and went and broke Felix Baumgartner's space dive record.
