What's a "charitable donor giver?" Someone or something that gives charitable donors?

Why would Tebow's hair curse?

Does it even talk?

Maybe that's his secret!

As a Pats fan it's nice to see what anyone-but-Gronk has been up to.

FTFA:

• Titans RB Chris Johnson says that just like LeBron James, he's going to make people rue the day they jumped off his bandwagon. He doesn't get why people "have written me off." Sources whisper it might have something to do with the fact that he rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009 and half as many last season.


He still owes me an apology for stinking up my fantasy team.

I'm waiting for the first crazy to gun down a player for making him lose a fantasy league....

More than 150 members of the Chiefs' organization, including a dozen players, build several homes in tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo. No, this item isn't funny. Just one you ought to know.

Well done.

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald gets the itch to go where no receiver has gone before: space. "I want to go into orbit," he says. "But it costs a million dollars right now, and that's out of my budget." Fitzgerald just signed an astronomical eight-year, $120 million contract.

so now the media is now ripping a professional athlete for showing constraint and understanding a budget? I don't care if his contract was a 120 billion. If he plans on retiring and maintaining a lavish lifestyle, he probably understands that certain wish list items just don't fit in.

Plus actually going into orbit does NOT cost $1,000,000. It's a lot more last I saw (I'm thinking some of the tourists on Soyuz paid like $40MM?). I suspect he just meant that it cost "a lot".

The lake thing apparently was staged. Linky (new window)

Heh.

Fortunately, I just channel my anger through Fark and Facebook posts.

While hammering out a contract, Saints QB Drew Brees finds enough spare change to dish out $12,500 to claim a 4-year-old gelding named SiempreMio. Odd postscript No. 1: Horse's former owners were Lakers Kobe Bryant and PauGasol. No. 2: SiempreMio translates to "always mine."

best one in the article.

/wtf?

The charitable donor asked for AJ to tackle him into the lake. It was all in good fun, and hey, why not?

I started following the NHL for this very reason. I've gotten sick of waking up in the morning to read about an NFL/NBA player getting arrested for DUI or beating his spouse or pulling a gun at a nightclub. Worst I have to read about is someone waking up from a night of drinking in their front yard.
