Not all UFC fans are going to threaten Mensa membership, but how can you not laugh at the news that some fans, so amped up to get tickets for UFC 129 in Toronto this April, have bought bogus tickets. You'd think they'd at least be aware that, you know, tickets aren't even on sale yet.
Very classy of the Miami Dolphins to announce that they will be keeping Tony Sparano as coach. Not classy? That they were interviewing other coaches for the job before making said announcement.
After the bronze medal game at the World Junior Hockey Championships, a reporter as asked US player John Ramage if his parents were in attendance. His dad, former NHLer Rob Ramage, is in jail of course after killing a friend while driving drunk.
Kurt Warner, who is by all indications as good a person as there is in the sporting game, took a pretty nice run at Brett Favre, telling the NFL Network his actions on and off the field in recent years have tarnished his legacy, at least in the short term: “I think he did. Not only this season, but the last few seasons, going back and forth [on retirement] and bouncing around to a few different teams. I think about it and I have to really think hard to think back when he was a Green Bay Packer and when he played his best football and was in Super Bowls.” Well said, Kurt. Well, except he only won one. And then, you've got Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocino - the latter who is hanging in Spain with Cristiano Ronaldo in one of the odder pairings I've heard - cracking on Favre as well. Owens said Favre strung the league along and was only fined $50,000 for the sexting allegations and earned $4 million extra this year to do it, while 85 chimed in that T.O. wouldn't get that extra money because he's black. Shame you went there, Ocho. Not like you haven't raked it in.
Love hearing that Marvin Morgan, a second division player in England has been suspended for two weeks and placed on the transfer list for Aldershot for tweeting out this gem: "Like to thank the fans who booed me off the pitch. Where's that going to get you! I hope you all die.''
Beauty from Mikhael Grabovski last night in the shootout, won 6-5 by the Toronto Maple Leafs. Love when the commentator says "this place is on its feet" comes exactly when they show half the crowd sitting down.
Oakland A's Craig Breslow has used Rex Ryan's foot fettish vid as inspiration for this bit. Awesome.
