Tim McCarver in AutoTune? Awesome

Well if you don't know who he is already, Tim McCarver has been an MLB analyst forever, despite the fact that he overanalyzes everything and always speaks like his mouth is full. So hearing him on AutoTune, as in this MLB on Fox commercial, might be the greatest idea of all time. Let's go to the videotape.

Grading the 2010 NFL Draft, One Year Later

Well the 2011 NFL Draft is almost here, so of course it is an excellent time to review the draft from the year prior. It's pretty obvious that the St. Louis Rams hit a home run when they selected Sam Bradford with the top pick, but how did the rest of the draft grade out one year later? Let's take a look.

Les Miles Kissing a Pig?

Well we have always know that LSU head coach Les Miles was a little crazy. From saying let'er rip during a pregame interviewsaying he does not read books, and best of all eating grass, he is in short an interesting character.

Michael Vick or Peyton Hillis Will Be On The Cover of Madden 2012...Wait, What?

So instead of naming the cover of Madden 2012, EA Sports teamed up with ESPN SportsNation to determine who will be the cover athlete. It's actually a neat concept, until you hear that the two finalists are Peyton Hillis, running back for the Cleveland Browns, and Michael Vick, quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. In my opinion, that's pretty feeble.
UPDATE: See who won. And I'm not happy.

Jimmie Johnson Wins the Aaron's 499 at the Line

Well at least the dreaded two car drafting packs that has been the norm at the restrictor plate races this season resulted in a great finish as they were three wide at the start/finish line and in what tied the closes finish in NASCAR history, .002 seconds, Jimmie Johnson edged Clint Bowyer for the victory, his second at Talladega Superspeedway and his first of the season. Johnson was pushed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. throughout the entire race and he then gave the checkered flag to Junior after he was pushed by his Hendrick Motorsports teammate to the victory. All four Hendrick cars finished in the top eight. (Click here to watch the finish).
