    TGIF, amiright? The week takes its toll on all of us, but Fridays are always a sign that we’ve managed to negotiate another week with our health and dignity intact.

    Sen’Derrick Marks Takes Cancer-Stricken Girl to Prom (Pics, Video, and Tweet)

    There’s no question that what Jacksonville Jaguar Sen’Derrick Marks did by taking 18 year-old Khameyea Jennings to her prom was a wonderful gesture that I’m sure made her year. However, there are a few trailing questions I have about the arrangement. Namely, since when do professional football players get to invite teenagers to their own proms? […]

  • Nobody Bid on a Jay Cutler Autographed Football at a Charity Auction :(

    Nobody Bid on a Jay Cutler Autographed Football at a Charity Auction :(

    Jay Cutler could have done without this. I mean, I’m sure memorabilia is put up for auction all the time that doesn’t get won, but normally, it’s not happening to the struggling Bears quarterback. Cutler has carved out a niche as the NFL’s premiere sad-sack Charlie Brown-type, so he probably didn’t need this hit to […]

    Roy Hibbert Witnesses Police Officer Giving Boots to a Homeless Man (Pic)

    Strictly speaking, a police officer giving boots to a homeless man has nothing to do with sports. However, when that act of charity is witnessed and then publicized by a very famous professional athlete—in this case, Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert—then it kinda becomes a sports story, doesn’t it?
