SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

From the You Can't Make This Stuff Up Department:

It has been reported that the ace of the Oregon State baseball team pitching staff has a troubling criminal record.

The main man on the mound for the Beavers is a registered sex offender.

And of course, his last name is - you guessed it - Heimlich.*

*(They used to call it the Hug. Now it's called the Maneuver).

However, OSU is so talented overall that nobody is expecting the team to choke if Heimlich is taken off the roster prior to this month's College World Series.

Without Heimlich how will they ever pull off a squeeze play?

Glad to see that the Cavs are cranking and not folding as other teams have in the past (2004 Lakers being a juicy example).

But maybe let the teams play and not have the refs try to tilt things by fouling out the entire Warriors squad. Cleveland may not need the help.

Oh, Lebron.

Why do you taunt us mortals like this?
