Welcome to Fark, Mr. President. Post some pictures of Michelle's boobies.

The RGIII headline is easily an early candidate for Sports Headline of the Year.

The Death Star was a great article but not headline. Article didn't need a great headline. Theismann Trophy. Now that's a headline!

I missed the wine headline the first time around. Excellent.
 
2013-01-14 02:15:37 PM  
Normally the only gay wine I hear about involves someone ruining his silk blouse.
 
2013-01-14 02:30:09 PM  
Missed the gay wine headline also.

"Scent of fruit, taste of nuts."

What, you're the head of space science at the Office of Budget Responsibility, who actually wrote that headline?

Pretty impressive

These recaps make my head hurt, because I keep slapping my head once I finally get the joke (s).

I remember being in the thread, when Foaming said that line everyone stopped and bowed down before his greatness. That was easily one of the best sports things I've seen in a thread, just spot on and timely.

I didn't know the Death Star one was you Steroid, nicely done.

The Death Star headline is funny. But that "fundamental flaw" line is actually in the official White House response. So, kudos to Captain Steroid for his good taste, but credit for the joke goes to Paul Shawcross, Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget.

I wasn't around to comment when the RGIII thread did its thing, but that headline is absolute gold.

Easily a contender for the Sports HOTY.
