Second Graders Correct Tweets From NFL Players And It’s Magical.

The NFL giving back to the community. Sure this isn’t what they had in mind but god bless em, they sure are helping out. Reminded me of the old movie “The Program”, where Alvin Mack was the big middle linebacker, and he wasn’t smart at all. His catchphrase from that movie was “All I gotta know is how to sign an NFL contract.”

Eden Hazard will be held to highest contempt – ESPN FC.

Truth be told, I absolutely hate soccer.  Jim Rome sums up my feelings here:

There isn’t anything about the game that interests me in any way at all. Except when dumb things happen on the “pitch”. This is one of those things. Can you imagine a baseball player hitting a bat boy?

More Jim Rome takes on Soccer. These are hilarious

Manti Te’o Girlfriend Hoax: Dead Spin Author Discusses Notre Dame Star’s Revelation | Video – ABC News.

Deadspin author on ABC News this morning revealing the “tip” Deadspin was given in order to investigate the Manti Te’o hoax.

I know there are many out there that are on Manti Te’o overload right now since the story broke barely 24 hours ago but I cannot stop looking. This is one of the most fascinating scandals that I can ever remember in sports. This is something that we just haven’t seen before. I am anxiously awaiting for all of the facts in this story to come out. I have read countless things in the past 24 hours on the subject and I am still greatly confused by this whole story. I was really hoping that he was going to speak this afternoon with a reporter but apparently he is waiting to do that through his new agent. It doesn’t look good for him right now but I am waiting for all of the facts to come out before I pass judgement either way. In the meantime, I cannot get enough of the Te’o jokes.

This story has literally exploded in the last two hours. This is a long read but well worth it. The depth of this hoax is amazing.

The University of Notre Dame has already released a statement that Te’o was a victim of the hoax. I am not sure if I believe that based on the Sports Illustrated article in November. I cannot wait to see where this story goes. If anything, he is at least guilty of embellishing his relationship for the SI article.

 

Te’o issued a statement today per ESPN

“This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.

“To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone’s sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.

“It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother’s death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life.

“I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been.

“In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was.

“Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I’m looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft.”

Te’o is currently training in preparation for the NFL draft at the IMG Institute in Bradenton, Fla. He is No. 8 on Mel Kiper’s latest draft board.

Here is Notre Dame’s official statement via twitter:

Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o

On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.

Denver mayor injured, unable to do Ray Lewis dance

Denver mayor injured, unable to do Ray Lewis dance.

I have always found these bets between mayors, or governors, to be interesting, albeit corny. This one takes the cake though. The mayor of Denver Michael Hancock was set to pay up his losing end of the bet by doing the “Ray Lewis” dance when he came down with an injury. I thought mayors were supposed to play though the pain. What are the odds that Hancock is faking the injury hoping people will forget about it so he doesn’t have to do the dance?

Pretty good rendition of the Ray Lewis dance here

Come on Mayor Hancock. You can’t be put to shame by a light show. Step up your game
