Police Warn Newcastle Fans: No Fascist Salutes On Sunday, Or We’ll Arrest You. Yes, That Should Work
Police have warned Newcastle fans that they will be subject to arrest of they mock new Sunderland coach Paolo Di Canio with fascist salutes on Sunday during their Premier League matchup. Di Canio is reputed to have pro-fascist political views, and reeled off the salute himself several times as a player. So, let’s sit back and watch the fun!
There’s been a back-and-forth between Richard Sherman and the NFL concerning an interview Sherman did with the Vancouver Sun. Lost in the “he-said-the-league-said” nature of the argument was a point Sherman made while defending his comments on the NFL Network today. How can the NFL allow Adderall for some without admitting it allows players to take a performance-enhancing drug?
Seventy-five winter athletes got together and sent a letter to President Barack Obama, advising him that if he doesn’t act soon, they’re going to be skiing on rocks and trying to skate on the surface of ponds and such. Well, he hears you, snow lovers — but the “politics are tough” and he doesn’t see an opportunity to do anything about it right now. Don’t you love politics?
TV viewers –including the kids and grandma — were treated to a few seconds of half-naked girls dancing on Monday night at the Miami Marlins game as the broadcast came out of commercial. Folks at the ballpark also got to see the show, which, presumably, left many unamused.
Brandon Ayanbadejo sat down with the Baltimore Sun this morning to discuss his recent release from the Super Bowl champions, as well as his same-sex marriage advocacy.

Another baby step towards the acceptance of gay athletes in sports was taken by one Magic Johnson, who was spurred to speak on the subject when his son came out to the public earlier this week. In an interview with TMZ, Magic discussed how it might encourage an L.A. Dodger to make a similar admission. Magic, for his part, seems elated at the concept. Video after the jump.
Apparently Hockey And Soccer Aren’t Big Enough For The Champions To Get Their Own Separate Days At The White House
Among the perks of being a championship U.S. sports team: you go to the White House, where you can photobomb where you’ve never photobombed before, and also meet the president and stuff. It’s a day to be honored for all you’ve achieved, a day for you to stand out. Well, depending on what sport you play.
It’s that time of year: that time of year when people fill out NCAA brackets. People like President Barack Obama, who, once he was finished keeping Kentucky out of the NCAA Tournament, joined ESPN’s Andy Katz in his yearly bracket-filling-out tradition. His Final Four picks after the jump, and we’ll post video of the segment once it’s available.
