The web roundup for Tuesday, December 11. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. See anything that should be on SportsGrid? Send it to Now, our starting five.

1. Bowie’s fib.

The man who was drafted ahead of Michael Jordan in 1984 lied about knee pain so the Trail Blazers would pick him. With millions on the line, can’t say we blame him.

2. 15-year-old boy arrested for racist tweet.

Because you already know English soccer fans are crazy.

3. Josh Brent attends memorial for Jerry Brown.

An impossibly difficult situation.

4. Raccoon in the stands.

Browns defeated by Cowboys, wild animal.

5. Not sports related, still important.

Cool 8 year-old gives all 500 birthday gifts to Toys for Tots; 6 superhero franchises that deserve to be rebooted; Watch a beaver and a boy wave to one another to brighten your day.

Food porn of the day.

“Umami burger – shitake mushroom, caramelized onion, roasted tomato, parmesan crisp, and umami ketchup.”

More like U-NOMNOM burger. (I apologize.)

And, finally tonight.

The second trailer for the new Superman movie is impressive.
