Jeremy Lin, Les Miles, Jerry Jones, And Mike Trout Were Responsible For The 4 Best Sports Moments Of 2012
It’s the end of the year here at SportsGrid, and everywhere else. Lots of other websites are making “best X of the year” posts, so we’ve decided to jump aboard that train, briefly. Except our moments aren’t particularly best or most important or most anything. But they all possess some particular significance, to someone, and we think that’s important to talk about. We’ve also only done four, because five is so two thousand and late. That’s how it goes, right?
No. 7 LSU has jumped out to a 10-0 lead at halftime in their game today against Arkansas, mostly due to the fantastic hand of wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

Via Fox News: “A group of Louisiana State University football fans whose admiration for the Tigers is second only to their love for Jesus is outraged after the school digitally erased the tiny crosses they painted on their bare upper chests at a recent football game.”
Maybe it was 12, or 10. Who knows. But not many 83-year-olds can handle being hoisted in the air, let alone chug beer as it’s uncontrollably pumped into their mouths. For this granny though, been there, done that. As in, last year.
Tyrann Mathieu, better known as the “Honey Badger,” was kicked off the LSU football team on Friday due to multiple violations of the team’s substance abuse policy. He’s hoping his days in purple and gold aren’t over, though. Details, after the jump.
