Looks like Everton fans were correct that Jason Puncheon "shits when he wants". Sadly for Crystal Palace fans, that includes while taking penalty kicks against Tottenham.

One of the worst penalty kicks I've ever seen. It would've given Palace a 1-0 lead only eight minutes in, too.

The Jacksonville man who killed a visiting Bears fan two years ago has been sentenced to life in prison.

This was a horrific crime. The victim was at a nice Irish pub on the beach the night before the game when he talked cordially to a woman. Her husband walked over and slit his throat.

Penn State has opted to hire James Franklin form Vanderbilt as their new football head coach. Franklin is from PA, said all the right words about his hiring, and ran a pretty successful program at Vandy, a place known more for hoops and academics than football. There is a bit of a cloud over Franklin, as 4 of his players were implicated in a rape. He suspended the 4, and their trial is pending. Some have suggested that Franklin suppressed evidence in the case, but an investigation said not so. Still, after the Sandusky affair, the last thing Penn State needs is another tainted coach in the program.
