Did you see where Texas A&M's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel was voted as a preseason second-team QB in the Southeastern Conference?
That seems harsh, but at least he was also voted most likely to play himself in a cameo if they ever make “The Hangover Part IV.”
Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has a rule against anyone wearing blue at a Buckeyes practice and made two NFL scouts change from their blue shirts in order to watch practice.
When news of the policy surfaced, lawyers filed a hue discrimination suit on behalf of Papa Smurf.
Suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun issued a statement last week apologizing for insisting he had not done performance-enhancing drugs. Braun said he used some cream and a lozenge for a “short period of time.”
I think I speak for all baseball fans when I say if we could only get rogue lozenges out of the game, it'd be a much better sport.
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was injured when he was hit while playing with the second-team unit in the fourth quarter of a preseason game against the Giants. The decision to put Sanchez in the game that late is likely part of Rex Ryan's master plan to become a Fox Sports football analyst.
Allen Iverson is ready to officially retire from the NBA. He hasn't played in the league since 2010. I'm talking about games. Not practice. Games.
Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young received a penalty for taunting Tom Brady in the Lions' preseason win last week. He was probably reminding Brady of all those Lions' Super Bowl rings while Brady's been stinking up the league.
The Buffalo Bills were set to sign quarterback Matt Leinart after injures to E.J. Manuel and Kevin Kolb. It was either sign Leinart or wave a white flag on the season, and the Bills apparently felt waving the white flag wasn't definitive enough.
A Forbes report says the Houston Astros are the most profitable franchise in Major League Baseball for 2013. The Astros, who have the worst record in baseball, are on pace to make $99 million because of TV revenue and a low payroll.
As the saying goes, winning isn't everything, milking fans for their money with an inferior product is the only thing.
