The Chicago Blackhawks Tied An NHL Record
With a shootout victory on Tuesday night, the Blackhawks tied the NHL record of 16 consecutive games with at least a point. In hockey terms, points are awarded when a team wins, ties, or loses in overtime. In other words, pretty much all the time. This is a pointless points system. Continue

Notre Dame And Louisville Played A 5-OT Game

The game, essentially the length of two full length games, was the longest regular season clash in Big East history. Notre Dame ended up getting the best of Louisville, winning 105-101. Unfortunately, the Catholic university’s number one supporter wasn’t around to see the end of the game, as Pope Benedict XVI gave up halfway through the third overtime.

Lil Wayne Was Kicked Out Of A Miami/Los Angeles Game, Maybe

Rapper Lil Wayne (short for Little Wayne) was apparently kicked out of an NBA game in Miami after gesturing to a fan that he had a gun. Apparently he had misunderstood the Lakers’ hopes to “send the Heat packing.” Continue

Bountygate Coach Gregg Williams Was Reinstated, Hired

Immediately after the NFL reinstated coach Gregg Williams, who had been banned from theNFL for his involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, the Tennessee Titans hired him. I guess it’s true what they say: Bounty does make for a quicker picker-upper. 


The Super Bowl Happened:
Half Of The Superdome Hit With 30-Minute Blackout - The other half, when reached for comment, had this to say: “I’m FINE, man. I had, like, two beersh. I can drive.”

A-Rod Was Among Players Named In Doping Allegations Published In Miami New Times
A report in the Miami New Times alleged ties between a group of Major League Baseball players, including Alex Rodriguez, and a Miami-based clinic suspected of dealing in performance-enhancing drugs. In retrospect, allegations make a lot more sense: A-Rod has been candid in the clubhouse about ‘doping around.’ Unfortunately, teammates always assumed A-Rod was referring to his general appearance.

Henrik Harlaut landed something called a “Nose Butter Triple Cork 1620.” If that’s not the play of the week, I don’t know what is. It sounds like a really expensive bourbon. That Dirty Harlaut. See it here.

Kobe Called His Team Old
After being defeated 103-99 by the 76ers, Kobe answered a reporter’s question about why his team lost by saying, “ ‘Cause we’re old as shit.” This is where I remind you that, despite being 34 years old, Kobe can run for 48 minutes before jumping three times as high as you will ever be able to, in order to dunk a basketball on a regulation height basketball hoop, while two 6-foot tall men try to stop him. But sure, we’ll go with “old.”

Johnny Football Won The Heisman Trophy





Texas A&M’s quarterback became the first freshman to win the award in its 77-year history. “We couldn’t be prouder,” said his parents, Michelle and Paul Football.






An Indiana H.S. Girls Basketball Team Won 107-2.




Bloomington South defeated Arlington in girls high school basketball by an incredible 105 point margin on Tuesday night, drawing criticism from parents saying the team ran up the score. Sounds like they should have spent less time whining and more time criticizing Arlington for being so bad at basketball, though, amirite?




Novak Djokovic Bought All Of The World’s Donkey Cheese






This is not a joke, people. The world’s top-ranked tennis player just spent over $500/pound to buy the entire annual supply of global donkey cheese. The cheese is also known as “pule,” not to be confused with “puke,” which is of course what happens after you eat donkey cheese. [Keep Reading]

The Marlins Traded Everyone

The Toronto Blue Jays benefited from the traditional Miami Marlins offseason fire sale, acquiring Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck in one of the biggest blockbuster trades in MLB history. Experts were stunned by the trade, and attempts to reach the Marlins for comment were not answered, since owner Jeff Loria also traded all Marlins employees for “a LOT of maple syrup.”

Mike Brown Got Fired, And The Lakers Hired Mike D’Antoni

Following a 1-4 start to the season, the Los Angeles Lakers fired coach Mike Brown. Though it was widely expected that the team would hire former coach Phil Jackson to take over, the front office instead hired Mike D’Antoni, who resigned as Knicks head coach midway through last season. Asked about the decision, Lakers owner Jerry Buss said, “We followed the old saying, ‘Winners never win and quitters never quit.’ Oh no. I’ve made a huge mistake.”

Texas A&M Upset College Football #1 Alabama

The 15th-ranked Aggies handed the Crimson Tide their first loss in over a year, winning 29-24 behind redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel. For many the win, which likely knocked Alabama out of the running for second-straight a BCS Championship, confirmed that A&M can still compete after an offseason move to the SEC division. I, for one, will still never take that division seriously, mainly because I accidentally type SEX almost every time I try to write it down.

Rangers centerfielder Josh Hamilton, thought by most to be the top free agent available in baseball’s offseason, announced that he is looking for a 7-year contract worth at least $175 million. Hamilton, who will turn 32 in May, reportedly is also seeking a perpetual motion machine, six unicorns, and “someone who has met Harry Potter” because he has “a really important question for him.”

The New York Islanders Are Moving To Brooklyn

New York’s second-favorite hockey team announced that it will be moving from its longtime home in Long Island to a newer, hipper neighborhood – the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Nets promptly derided the move, noting that they decided to move to the area “before it was mainstream.” The Islanders were quick to note that the NHL is about as far from mainstream as you can get.

Bradley Wiggins Won The Velo d’Or Award

Cycling fan was delighted to hear that British cyclist Bradley Wiggins won the Velo d’Or Award as the best rider of 2012. The Olympic gold medalist and reigning Tour d’France winner was also retroactively awarded third place in the 2009 Tour de France after Lance Armstrong was stripped of his titles. A good week for Bradley Wiggins, who, if I’m not mistaken, was previously best known for helping Frodo Baggins destroy the one ring to rule them all in the fires of Mordor.
