The most amazing bowling story you'll ever read: Bill Fong is tied as the 15th-best competitive league bowler in Plano, Texas. One night in January two years ago, he almost achieved immortality. And then again, maybe he achieved it anyway.

NFL May Make Pass Interference a Replay Challenge

They moved somewhere around Mach 2, and I don't think a football could move that fast.

I'm pretty sure John Madden thought Favre could throw at the speed of light.

Peyton Manning’s squeaky-clean image was built on lies

It wasn't swept under here. We had a discussion about it at the time, and I have brought it up repeatedly in columns and my own blog posts.

Fivehead is a fucking tool.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

This was pretty crazy, and it means Rolf Nilsen has a massive strike against him moving forward. The CHL is extremely protective of its image, and David Branch will have made clear to Nilsen that if he ever pulls a stunt like this again, the league will force him to sell his franchise.

This isn't even the first time this has popped up in recent memory, though. The Sudbury Wolves had Connor Burgess (son of owner Mark Burgess) on their roster for 95 games and he managed to racked zero goals and three points in that time. It was an open secret that the younger Burgess was simply not an OHL-caliber player, but the father insisted on keeping him (and giving him the full scholarship package).

Right now HHOFer Dale Hawerchuk is coaching the OHL's Barrie Colts and has his son, Ben, on the team. There was quite a bit of handwringing about it, but mostly from Dale himself not wanting to put undue pressure on his kid. Ben has worked his ass off, though, and this year is starting to shine as not only a pretty good scorer and motor guy, but also one tough little bugger.

Thanks, Howard, that was pretty damned awesome.

Minnesota State players refuse to practice as coach Todd Hoffner returns

Has there been any explanation (aside from the weak "We're better people" stuff) as to why they prefer the interim? Was Hoffner a huge tool or something? Suicides until you puke kinda guy? I'm willing to hear out the players if there was abuse at practices or something, but if not, STFUASU (Shut The Fuck Up And Suit Up).

Bench-Clearing Brawl Between Pirates, Brewers

Who said Cole was complaining? He probably called Gomez a lazy fuck and Gomez, knowing in this case it was accurate, reacted. I'd say Cole actually did a bang-up job -- he got out of the inning with no further damage AND he removed an opponent who had hit him hard from the game.

Bench-Clearing Brawl Between Pirates, Brewers

Fuck Carlos Gomez right in the ear. I think Cole was well within his rights to go over and give him a little verbal jabbing for blowing what should have been an inside-the-park home run. And pitch better? Cole gave up six hits and a walk in eight innings.

Had Gomez run out of the box, the Brewers would have won that game in regulation, instead of having to go 14 innings and work three more guys out of the bullpen.

I agree about the guys leaving the bench, but man, if they banned it, we would've missed this.

Broncos Mock Jaguars on Twitter

The team must have put Hermes on waivers so they could try something new, I suppose.

Michael Vick's ears pricked up briefly, but only because he thought you said herpes.

Bruno Mars to Play Super Bowl Halftime

Peyton Manning Throws 7 TDs, Broncos Rout Ravens

In my league, Peyton rolled up 65. I'm pretty sure the rest of my opponent's team could stay in the locker room Sunday with the shits and beat me.
