Jon Bon Jovi and Donald Trump are among those interested in buying the Buffalo Bills. If Bon Jovi buys the team, they'll be livin' on a prayer. If Trump buys it, they'll be livin' with the hair.

Johnny Cleveland?

Johnny Manziel worked out for the Cleveland Browns on Saturday in College Station, Texas, ESPN reported. Officials apparently talked with Johnny Football and watched him throw a variety of passes.

The NCAA's decision to loosen its rules regarding feeding student-athletes has received almost universal support. “If UConn wants to feed Shabazz (Napier) breakfast in bed every day, they can,” NCAA president Mark Emmert said. UConn's biology majors are encouraged to keep stocking up on Pop-Tarts.

Even the statues couldn't bear to watch last fall

Miami (Ohio) University put up a statue of John Harbaugh to add to its statues of Miami alum who have excelled as coaches. In an interesting twist, the statue of Harbaugh could have coached the RedHawks last season and they would have finished with the same 0-12 record.

Chuck stops here

TNT analyst Charles Barkley called the Indiana Pacers “wussies” after their Game 1 playoff loss to the Atlanta Hawks. The Pacers responded by going to Pacers president Larry Bird and said, “Chucky's picking on us. Make him stop!”
