NBC must hate Saints fans, and LA fans too, I guess.

Tonight's 10 PM rerun of SNL was an episode from 2005.

The host was Tom Brady. :thumbdown:

Anyone check out the debut of the AAF last night? No kickoffs and no extra point kicks was a little different.

Steve Spurrier's Orlando team stomped Atlanta although they didn't show that game in my area.

Clemson’s Dabo Swinney says college may have given players banned drug by mistake

Clemson officials still don’t know or aren’t saying how three football players tested positive for an illegal performance-enhancing drug prior to the Dec. 29 Cotton Bowl. But as the program continues to appeal the suspensions, head coach Dabo Swinney acknowledged it could have come from within — mistakenly.

Duke’s Zion Williamson blows out his shoe, injures knee, and Nike gasps in horror

Duke University forward Zion Williamson, the top college basketball player in the nation and one of the best NBA prospects in the past decade, was lost to a knee injury just seconds into a key game against North Carolina when his foot slid on the floor and his Nike-made shoe exploded, twisting his knee and sending him sprawling.
...
Former President Barack Obama, who was in the crowd, was caught on camera putting it succinctly: “His shoe broke.”

(I suggest clicking the link. Some of the twitter quotes are hilarious!)

Hopefully for Williamson and Duke he comes back quick. March is like next week.

But for Nike ... :lol: :clap: :thumbup: :lol:

Patriots Owner Bob Kraft Charged With Soliciting Prostitution

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, one of the most powerful men in American football, was charged today on two counts of soliciting prostitution in connection to a recent law enforcement bust on massage parlors in Florida that, according to law enforcement, were used for prostitution and human trafficking. The news comes a few weeks after the Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl and days after Kraft appeared at the NBA All-Star game.

Amazing! British woman breaks deadlift, squat and bench press reps records!!

The bench press record fell immediately. Zuby, "identifying as a woman," was able to surpass the best female British athlete by a wide margin, and he was able to do it, as he put it, while looking "strong, stunning, and brave" — just as Serena Williams described female athletes in a confusing Nike commercial, promoting female athletes competing against men, that aired during the Academy Awards.

I identified as a woman whilst lifting the weight. Don't be a bigot.

So, Bryce Harper turns down Nats offer of 10 years for 300 million, signs with Phils for 330 million for 13 years. WTF? Even Machado is getting more per year.

My thinking is that he wasn't going to be able to top the average per year, so he did the next best thing. He saw the $325 highest total contract record and had to top it, even if it brings his average down to less than $26 million per year.

Any Philly fans want to chime in on this deal? Remember Ryan Howard?

And good luck getting Bryce to run out ground balls now. :roll:
