All this talk about Christian Okoye has really made me miss the guy. I grew up in KC and was in High School/College when Christian was doing his thing. Of course, I can’t find any postable video of the Nigerian Nightmare in action, because the NFL is hoarding it for a very special NFL Network program to be named later.

And now Christian’s going to be a pirate. You know I’m watching this show.

There are few things that are a guaranteed laugh for me, but Darwin Exception’s Stupid People In the News segments give at least one howler per article.

I love this story about Cole Hamels and his possible calming rituals.

What the hell is Okajima looking at?

After being extremely creeped out by search terms like Handy Manny Porn, you can’t imagine my relief to read this article and realize that it’s only half as bad as I thought.

Jack Cobra tells us how the Bulls beat the defending NBA champs.

And finally, if Ding Long is my Kicker, I want this guy as my Long Snapper. He’s clearly done the most with the least amount of natural talent ever, both on the field and in the boudoir.
