A fantastic Super Bowl angle...

Ahh, Kentucky, way to keep pushing those stereotypes at right. 

That's ten straight year's that the NFC has sent a different representative to the Super Bowl.

For UFC 129 in Toronto, in addition to Georges St. Pierre vs. Jake Shields for GSP's Welterweight Championship fight, add Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo defending his Featherweight title against Canadian Mark Hominik (who was awesome at Fight For The Troops on Saturday with a superb first round knockout win), as well as Canadian Rory McDonald facing Nate Diaz.  More on the card here.  Tickets go on sale February 12th.  Get your first born ready.

Damien Cox of the Toronto Star wonders if the NHL put Sidney Crosby in a position to get hurt, along with the rest of the players that day,  by allowing the Winter Classic to be played in the conditions it was played in.

Toronto FC's Nana Attakora is excited for the new coaching staff and season of TFC.

Says GS, huge Pittsburgh Steeler fan, looking to the Super Bowl: The Steelers have never lost a Super Bowl the same year their QB was accused of rape AND after beating a coach with a foot fetish. Prediction: Steelers win.

Who at the Canadian Soccer Association thought these abominations were a good idea for the men's national team?  Can't say they're not fitting though, given the quality of the team in recent years.  Question: are the chevron's to indicate which direction the team is heading?

48-year old Herschel Walker, who still knocks out 1,000 sit-ups and push-ups when he wakes up every morning, is talking NFL comeback.  No, seriously. 

Chelsea captain John Terry is positioning himself for a career as a comic once his footballing days are over.  Check this out: he says Chelsea could still win the English Premier League this year.  Uh-huh.  Leaders Manchester United, who play Blackpool today at 2:30pm on Setanta, have trailed this season - SEASON - for all of 41 minutes.  That's an incredible number when you've played over 2,000 minutes.

Here's a quick look at some of the swings other NFLers took at Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler.  Not sure why their are Seattle Seahawks talking.  Didn't Cutler and the Bears just crush them a week prior?  Guess the 57 regular season sacks Cutler took behind that leaky offensive line finally took its toll.  The always thought provoking Jason Whitlock says that the fire Cutler has taken ought to put the nail in the coffin of the LeBron James apologists that viewed his beating as being racially motivated when he quit on the Cleveland Cavs in last year's playoffs.  

Fantastic story on EPLer Jermaine Pennant: Pennant played last season for Real Zaragoza in Spain and then in August went back to England to play for Stoke City when he went to the train station to make his way back to his homeland.  One problem: he forgot that he parked his Porsche 911 at the train station.  For six months.  So finally, the police got around to tracking him down when they got tired of writing tickets, and asked him if he'd come claim his car, which still had the keys on the passenger seat!  Pennant forgot he had a Porsche 911.  Rough life when you can forget that.

Pittsburgh Steeler Rashard Mendenhall gives Ben Roethlesberger a taste of his own medicine late in Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Think Chicago Bears Fan is bent with Jay Cutler (apparently/possibly) quitting on Sunday?  Whole page here.
