Uh… whatever you say, Ma Pacquiao. [Deadspin]

2. Josh Brent wants to attend Jerry Brown’s memorial service.

Brent, of course, is the teammate of Brown’s who is now charged with intoxication manslaughter stemming from the car accident that took Brown’s life. Obviously, Brent realizes this might not go well. Either way, awful, awful situation. [ESPN Dallas]

3. UFC’s Benson Henderson fights entire bout with toothpick in mouth, wins.

4. “Bob Belichick.”

Maybe that’s the name on Belichick’s long-form birth certificate. [Twitter]

5. Not sports related, still important.

Could beer help fight the common cold?; Stephen Colbert should just go ahead and run for Senate; Pot-friendly coffee shops: the wave of the future?
