LBJ's Racism Woes
  posted by Ren, 10/27/2010
With the NBA season starting up, I am again reminded of the marquee offseason move. Their super-hyped superstar, LeBron James, is moving to Miami to play with a couple other superstars. With this move came a ton of hoopla, and honestly a ton of hate. It's pretty rare to see so much vitriol for someone simply because he decided to change teams.

Going for Two

You're the head coach of a football team. Your team is down by 15 points and there isn't a ton of time left. Lightning strikes! Touchdown!

Landis - The Biggest Dope?
  posted by Ren, 5/21/2010
By now anyone who watches ESPN has seen that Floyd Landis has finally admitted to using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) after 4 years of vehement denial. He even solicited funds from the general public to help him file a lawsuit against the people who caught him. Reportedly, there are a few donors who made some quite large donations (people actually believed him?!?) and it wouldn't surprise me if Floyd gets sued over it. His credibility is shot, his career is in shambles, and even his personal life seems to be down the drain with a recent divorce. Yet, even still, he's not the biggest dope in this case.
