CNN host Piers Morgan has made a habit of trolling athletes and sports figures on Twitter in a way that Skip Bayless could only dream.  He was Arsene Wenger's most vocal critic until Arsenal started winning consistently again this season and we've even seen him trade blows with players on his favorite team.  It's gotten […]

Jimmie Johnson is still irritated at Donovan McNabb

Back in November, Donovan McNabb said that Jimmie Johnson (and his NASCAR brethren) wasn't an athlete on Fox Sports Live, mere days before Johnson won his sixth Sprint Cup Championship.
