    http://www.news1130.com/2012/12/20/after-report-suzy-favor-hamilton-tweets-that-she-worked-as-an-******-5/ Wow! I remember watching her during her running days on the track. Quite a talent - in more ways than one, apparently. Who-da thunk it???

    Deserved a swift response...

    This little twit (Alexander Serebryakov - Team Type 1 - Tour of Taihu Lake, China) deserved to get lifted off the ground by way of a swiftly accelerating foot for this bush-league stunt. Didn't even win the stage and goes and embarasses the hostesses...

    random thread title

    Sorry, pal. Not interested in taking in 3rd division Pro Continental football. NCAA and NFL will be around soon enough.

    Sounds plausible, Patrice. I believe you.

    Seriously, Patrice? You bought it for your own personal use? What you training for, Patrice? Can 'busted doper' stories get any more ridiculous? LOL! Rhetorical question, as I'm sure the best is yet to come...

    Joe Paterno/Penn State/Sandusky Child Molestation Affair

    Being a former collegiate football player who respects Paterno on a number of levels, I must comment briefly on this sordid affair. Incredibly tragic for the children. Incredibly sick on Sandusky's part. Couldn't have written a worse epilogue to the story of arguably the greatest...
