That is so great. They must be working on a Suarez montage right now. Which actually might be too easy to the point of not being worth doing.

Johnny Manziel allegedly rolling bills in a bathroom does not mean he was doing cocaine.

Despite the current slow period in sports news, no mention here of the recent Coney Island Hot Dog Championship. Which included the reigning champ proposing to his girlfriend - a fellow competitive eater - before the event, and then narrowly retaining his crown by pulling away late, as they say.

Does anyone know where to get ball-in-play time statistics? This piece from zonalmarking has Friday's Brazil-Columbia match at 41:07 and seems to imply that Germany-France's 50-some minutes is a big (or at least average) number. I never realized that there was that much inactive time, and likewise, what are the guidelines for adding on stoppage time?

That's a pretty high bar, but Sleepy McSlobberson has either approached it or narrowly cleared it.

Now there is some doubt being cast on the legitimacy of the lawsuit even existing. It may well be a prank.

No, it's all true. Terms of the lawsuit are that he wants season tickets for life, a padded reclining seat, and a blanky.

The false statements include but are not limited to:
d. Plaintiff is a confused disgusted and socially bankrupt individual.
