LeSean McCoy allegedly sent someone on a home invasion to take jewelry he gave an ex-girlfriend when they were together.

O.J. Simpson served nine years in prison for robbing a memorabilia dealer at gunpoint to get items he felt were rightfully his. This allegation is more serious than that because the ex and another woman were both struck in the face with the gun.

Injury pictures of one of the victims are horrific.

If there is a scale for this shit, seems like this is somewhere between Simpson and Carruth.

England really became a mess in the middle. I thought they'd have more legs, but their shape and stamina let them down. Croatia was a deserving winner. I hope they can give France a real challenge.

Hoping mightily that Croatia will keep wearing their dark unis instead of the garish Five Guys red and white checkerboard sets.

Their team psychologist has to order the players to banish all thoughts of Lilian Thuram, idle or otherwise.

Apparently Henderson was playing with a "minor hamstring" issue that worsened as the match went on. Klopp will not be happy that Southgate kept him on the field until extra time, or even played him at all. Most Liverpool fans will not be so nice.
