For his final movie role, Alex Karras is apparently reprising the part of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail's" Black Knight. Karras, a former University of Iowa and Detroit Lions standout defensive lineman who went on to even greater fame as Mongo in "Blazing Saddles" and George Papadapolis in the 1980s ...

ESPN: Bad At Geography

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

I'm not sure what geography majors do when they finish college, but obviously they don't end up working at ESPN. Friend of the program and lifelong Minnesotan Bdogmarvelous caught the pictured error on Sports Center yesterday -- a rather shocking imagine of the outline of Minnesota labeled as "Wisconsin" in some ...

Being Buster Olney

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

We assume the following conversation took place between ESPN writer Buster Olney and his brain this weekend before he wrote a story detailing baseball's possible realignment to two 15-team leagues. BUSTER: Hey brain, do you have any ideas? There's nothing interesting going on right now and I need to stir ...

LeBron: Almost As Popular as iCarly

Monday, July 12th, 2010

The ratings are in for LeBronapalooza, aka the Bron-Bron Fellatiathon, also known as "The Decision."* As expected, it was a ratings bonanza. I guess.

Gregg Doyel Is Bad At Journalism

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Gregg Doyel writes for CBSSports.com and his columns are - to say the least - usually over-the-top, lack proper insight and, frankly, suck. He's the guy who said that College Basketball as we know it is now over because John Calipari is at Kentucky. Yep, completely over. Teams like North ...

Zack and AP Make A Porno

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Now that the drama that was the Bulls and Celtics has left us, most people are left wondering what to watch. Let's face the facts, there isn't another playoff series that will match that drama until the David Stern-mandated Kobe vs. LeBron Finals are upon us. Personally, I'd go with the ...

Worldwide Leader in D’oh!

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

As Jay Leno points out to us every week, writing headlines ain't easy. In fact, bad headlines are the only thing that make Jay funny. But with some headlines, the reaction is a painful grimace rather than laughter. Consider the following gem that was on ESPN's website following Virginia Tech's double-overtime ...
