For a guy who frankly does not have a ton of it, there’s been a lot of attention paid to ESPN NFL reporter John Clayton’s hair over the last couple years. He’s been suspected of having a ponytail. He’s been suspected of having a mullet. The “truth,” however, is far more shocking. [The Big Lead]
OK, I get it. So SportsCenter isn’t really a “news” program. They like to do frivolous things on the air every once in a while (once in a while being every day), and the dog days of August present an expected lull in the sports news cycle. So with eight hours worth of SportsCenter to fill each day and nothing newsworthy really going on in the wide world of sports, the folks in Bristol needed to dig pretty deep today to fill air time. And since we know they just love celebrating birthdays, they couldn’t let Kobe’s go by without acknowledgement.

Oh man, this is great, actually. I mean, I love Louis C.K. and all, but when everything you hear about masturbation is coming from one source, it’s a little much, you know? ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer’s “Stroke Principles” should be a welcome change. So let’s hear ‘em, Trent.
Matt Millen’s in a tough spot here. Let’s start with that.
Because he went to Penn State and played for both Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky, he finds himself able to offer a kind of insight into this scandal that none of ESPN’s other personalities can offer. He’s a Nittany Lion, through and through, so he’s been trotted out on SportsCenter this morning as their resident Joe Paterno apologist.

On this site, we’ve featured our share of fans trying to catch foul (or otherwise out-of-play) balls at baseball games, and the odd parenting situations it sometimes creates. This may be the oddest… and it even forced an ESPN anchor to apologize on the air.
