Here I was hanging with Rog on a football field, about an hour before the start of the NFC Championship Game: Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers, Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, January 24, 2016...

I was just a stupid kid when the Russians came to town for the Olympics. About all they could say was "Boooby Oor, Booby Ooor".
This guy, built on the worst set of knees ever, could skate circles around the best skaters in the world like they were pylons. Absolutely jaw dropping footage.

Russian curlers Alexander Krushelnitsky and Anastasia Bryzgalova will hand back the Olympic medals they won in Pyeongchang, the Russian news agency TASS reported, citing a Russian curling Federation spokesperson.
Has-been actress Kirstie Alley thinks curling is boring, and tweeted about it. Feeling justifiably slighted, Team USA's skipper John Shuster fired back with both barrels. Rowr.

Elizabeth Swaney, a 33-year-old American competing for Hungary, finished last in the women’s halfpipe event at the Winter Olympics with this less-than-thrilling run that featured exactly zero tricks. You must be wondering how a skier whose skills don’t come close to matching what we’re used to seeing from Olympic athletes is at Pyeongchang to begin with. The answer lies in the fact that in a sport that lacks any depth globally, pretty much anybody could have qualified for a spot at the Games.

I just had to share that Jeopardy contestants have to study hard on literature, science, potent potables and the like. They has no time left for football.
This is epic watching Trebek getting a little smug with these three.

Last weekend during the Saints' rout of the Buffalo Bills in their own stadium, a streaker managed to make it from end zone to end zone, 100 yards. The entire Bills offense only managed to put up 67 yards on the ground, so the streaker - who rolls derby under the name Senior Weiner in Ontario - beat them almost as handily as New Orleans did.

If you're a fan of college football, here's a good season preview and prediction site.
While I prefer the pro game, I will pay attention to the Saturday version of the sport from time to time.

If you thought golf was a low-risk sport, think again. Using a golf cart to run over fellow golfers has become a major trend in recent weeks, inspiring anger from unsuspecting victims and course etiquette experts alike.
Several graphic video clips can be found supporting this idiotic behavior.

There’s a video going around the Internet of a balance-bike race in Japan. A long row of pre-school-aged kids, aboard low-slung bikes with no brakes or pedals, takes off from a start ramp like a pack of greyhounds. The kids kick their bikes up to speeds that would make most adults uncomfortable, and carve through the course’s maze of sharp corners with tenacity and grace.
Would you subject your three year-old to something like this?

A thus-far frustrating season for the Mets took another bizarre and embarrassing turn Wednesday night when a cellphone video of team mascot Mr. Met making an obscene gesture toward a fan went viral.

Teams of autonomous robots playing soccer, you ask? Why yes, this event of four international teams met in Beijing yesterday and it resulted in the Americans beating the Australians 7-3.

The biggest threat to America's national pastime is not the rising popularity of soccer, nor the chronic gaffes and serial dissembling of the NFL when the subject of head injuries arises. It is the formidable power of one of the most awesome collective forces in nature: concerned mothers.
Author Aaron Gillies posted a humorous graphic of commemorative guitar picks that depict the symbols of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games along with a simple explanation of each.

I'm really saddened by this. It used to be special every four years and the anticipation building immediately beforehand was wonderful.
Now? It's just the only avenue for gymnasts, swimmers, and maybe even boxers to compete on the world stage. Oh, and bad advertising opportunities.
