Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

Documents Show Secret Plans for Elite League of Top Clubs: People have been talking about this since at least the late '80s, and the possibility was the direct cause of UEFA creating the Champions League in '92, but the documents leaked here suggest the big boys are not yet satisfied with their share of the money. Hoo boy!

Usain Bolt scored two goals in his first professional soccer start: The first goal came from his speed but also featured a nice awareness of positioning, nutmegging the defender and going near post where the goalie was unsighted. Seems like he may have earned a contract!

Deadspin Has Been Traded

Is the "10-to-34-year-old market" really a thing?

In the sense that they're mostly still dependent on an allowance from parents. Boom, swish! I'm here all week folks!
