Sepp Blatter raises fresh doubts about holding Qatar 2022 at the scheduled dates. How I hate this man.

Red Sox ownership told Theo Epstein the team needed "sexy guys" to improve flagging TV ratings and bring in female fans (who obviously could never just like a sport without some tight buns).

Kill me now.

Henry and Werner are in the wrong sport. They should have bought a hockey team so they could roster guys like Tie Domi.

Too bad they already let Youklis go.

Mr. B., that exceeded my laugh limit.

I need to make you a Mai Tai.

Wait...isn't Mr Bismarck one of your sock puppet, beaverboard?

Not any longer. That show was shut down by the state of Illinois.

I've never heard of a team running players through a Hot or Not? test before making deals. That's got to hurt some of the people they got rid of during that period. Mike Lowell is asking his wife this morning if his pants make him look fat. Adrian Beltre is ordering Rogaine. Josh Beckett is finally realizing that the soul patch draws too much attention to his doughy chin.

Conversely, Dustin Pedroia is making out with himself in a mirror. Carl Crawford is calling his agent to see if he can get a contract bonus for becoming more sexy over time. Adrian Gonzalez has finally won the argument with his wife about not needing to trim his eyebrows.

Really enjoying that video.

I can't buy Pete Carroll telling a player to stay off heroin. He just wouldn't care. Carroll, after all, is kind of like the Maddux of football but much more passive/aggressive. Look at what he did to poor Matt Flynn after all.
