    Civil disobedience reigned in Knoxville last night, as you no doubt know by now, as news broke that Lane Kiffin was headed to USC. Volunteers fans: Not amused. There were conflicting reports: Some witnesses saying that a full-blown riot occurred, others saying that the action consisted mainly of throngs of students running aimlessly down the…

  2. Wes Welker's girlfriend was Miss Hooters International. Not bad

    Jan 13, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Not sure if Wes Welker is still on crutches, but in case he is, I can think of no better nurse than Anna Burns. If you’re going to have a girlfriend around to fetch various items and fluff up your pillow (cough), why not have her be the 2005 winner of Miss Hooters International? The…

    So is it possible that Tennessee fans were rioting last night not because Lane Kiffin was leaving for USC, but because his wife, Layla Kiffin, was also going? Look, if the coach of my favorite team had a wife who looked like this and decided to leave, I’d set fire to a couple of mattresses…

    Jan 12, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    General Motors says the free car gravy train is OVER; Tiger Woods can forget the free Cadillac Escalades he’s been given by the company in recent years. GM says that its contract with Woods ended on Dec. 31, and that’s the reason. Yeah, OK. We literally just fell off of a turnip truck, and totally…

    If you follow the NHL, and I know you do, you’re no doubt aware of the Philadelphia Flyers’ non-goal against the host Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday. The Flyers’ Simon Gagne appeared to score a shorthanded goal in the second period, with goalie Brent Johnson smothering the puck and carrying it into the net. When the…

  10. Japanese version of Usain Bolt is so wrong on so many levels

    Jan 12, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    We haven’t heard a heck of a lot from Usain Bolt since he burst onto the scene in 2008, winning three gold medals at the Beijing Olympics and three more at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin. If he were American he’d be everywhere; on cereal boxes, Subway commercials with Jared, and chatting with the…

    We finally have the name of Deep Throat in the Tiger Woods saga, and appropriately, she’s someone you wouldn’t mind meeting in a deserted parking garage. Remember when The National Enquirer first reported that Tiger was seeing young lasses on the side, and absolutely no one believed them? (You owe the National Enquirer an apology…

    Anyone who’s watched the Little League World Series recently is aware that Homo sapiens are quickly evolving into a race of storybook giants. Our children are taller and bulkier than ever before; as if Mark McGwire was tampering with the National School Lunch Program. The kid pictured here, for example, was an actual Little Leaguer:…

  13. Morning Tweet: The Pizza Whisperer is an a******

    Jan 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    You may say this has nothing to do with sports, but I eat a lot of pizza while watching various televised games, and this needs to be said: The Pizza Whisperer is a dou******g. The latest Round Table commercial sent me over the edge, and you know the one I mean. The Pizza Whisperer, wearing…

    Jan 11, 2010, 8:43 PM EDT

    Right now I’m looking for a news link to the story of the Packers fan who allegedly grabbed a baseball bat and went to town on two flat-screen TVs at a Wisconsin department store on Sunday. This quote is hilarious if true: “If the Cards can get away with face masking I should get away…

  16. When GW Bush met Emmitt Smith; a conversation for the ages

    Jan 11, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Oh, to be able to listen in on this monumental conversation. I think that the following tweet sums it up pretty nicely: George W. Bush is sitting by Emmitt Smith at the Cowboys/Eagles game. English is splashing cold water on its face and muttering, “Man up”. President Bush is explaining how he and Laura are…

    Russia’s new Continental Hockey League (CHL) is off to a dubious start, you might say. You may recall in 2008, when a 19-year-old player collapsed during a game and later died from heart failure. And now this; a brawl unprecedented in Russian hockey, in which 691 penalty minutes were doled out, and so many players…
