Lawsuit likely reason Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge is no more

As you may recall, last year as we got ready for March Madness, Warren Buffett gave us a new reason to think extra hard about that Stanford over Kansas pick because he was offering $1 BILLION dollars to anyone who emerged with a perfect bracket. Well, unsurprisingly, Buffett didn’t have to pay anyone because the […]


Dick Vitale is not bitter, says ESPN has treated him like a king

Whether you love or hate Dick Vitale, the man is kind of a legend. And pulling him from calling Duke/UNC is the sports equivalent of putting Baby in the corner (I have a quota of bad 80s metaphors to fill, okay??). Despite this shun, if you will, Vitale is firm in his loyalty to ESPN […]

Rob Gronkowski Erotica is a thing that exists

While Rob Gronkowski and the New England Patriots are busy preparing for the playoffs, other people are busy using Gronk in fantasies other than PPR leagues and the such. Erotica novelist Lacey Noonan has written what I am sure is a novel whose quality aligns with Jameis Winston’s performance in the Rose Bowl. A Gronking to […]

Despite a 9-3 season this year, it was not enough to save Pelini’s job, and he will not coach whatever bowl game the Huskers end up in. As soon as […]
