Those kookie folks over at the Westboro Baptist Church are at it again. This time, they’re directing their efforts toward the death of unarmed black teen, Michael Brown, who was shot and killed because a guy barely on the Rams’ roster has a boyfriend. This science. No arguing.
It’s the preseason dude, relax. Nobody’s getting canned this early, especially the guy who runs the entire offense. Sorry Snoop…
As we learned from this year’s Men’s World Cup (and the one before it, and the one before it), FIFA and its president Sepp Blatter are more greedy than intelligent. So for next year’s Women’s World Cup in Canada, FIFA has matches being played on artificial turf. And if you’ve ever played on – or even walked on – artificial turf, you know it’s not much better than landing on a sheet thrown over a concrete floor.
If athletes are anything, they’re superstitious. Wade Boggs always ate chicken before a game (well, that and visited his mistress). Brian Urlacher eats two chocolate chip cookies before injuring people every Sunday. During playoff drives guys grow Amish-like beards. And if they play long enough, athletes cling to their uniform numbers and the luck they supposed bring them, even if it costs them.
For a team called the Angels, they sure are cursed. Remember how the season began? Hitting Coach Don Baylor fractured his femur catching (catching!) the ceremonial first pitch.
You Can Now Rent Rory McIlroy’s Former Northern Ireland Mansion/Golf Course For $21,000 A Week (Slideshow)
McIlroy sold the 14-acre golf nirvana when he moved to Florida in October of 2013. Did we mention the price comes with helicopter service?

Great Goglie Moglie!
Last year the San Francisco 49ers went 12-4 during the regular season and missed the Super Bowl by a TD. So how do you reward the team? Move them out of the mess that is Candlestick Park and into a state of the art arena in Santa Clara. Levi’s Stadium has wi-fi for everyone, is FIFA approved, and will host Super Bowl 50 (that’s Super Bowl L for you Romans). In a more pedestrian role, it’s also the home playing field for the 49ers, but during practice Coach Jim Harbaugh took his team off the field because the grass was giving way and his players were slipping all over the place. That’s not what you want a Super Bowl contender to do before the season even starts.
