We get a massive amount of tips in our inbox each week. Some are pretty interesting, but don't get published for one reason or another.
It's usually because they're just so absurd or really lack even the most tenuous of news angles to give them the go-ahead. Other times it's because they're just absolute horseshit. But every Friday until we get sick of running them, we'll present to you some of these not-so-shiny gems. All items should be treated as [Sic'd]. Enjoy..
Due Diligence Is A Two-Way Street
ok so its 2:03 AM central time, and im watching sportscenter. right after the cavs/ magic highlights, they cut to rachel nichols, but in the 2 seconds of transition, someone in the studio can be heard loudly cutting the cheese and the awkward look on her face is priceless as she tries to play it off. i wish i knew how to transport from my DVR to my computer, but im sure you guys will be able to find someone who can put this on the best sports site there is. oh and if you cite me on deadspin (especially the wake up!), my buddy frank would hate me forever, so please make this happen.

Okay, Then Why Did You Send This In Again?
So, I know that Deadspin does softball injuries but I thought I'd send this in. On Monday (Memorial Day) I was coming back from my friends house down the street. I was starting to see double and clearly thought that it would be a great opportunity to see what I am made of on my Longboard Skateboard. So I made it pretty far, having the nice crisp air on my face as I'm cutting through the streets. I get to a large hill and figure hey, I made it this far, lets see what I'm made of. As you can imagine, I started down the hill and uh oh... Got the speed whobbles and totally bit it on the pavement. Luckily I threw my hands down to protect my face and head. I ended up getting the skin on the entire lower part of my palm ripped off, arms are cut up, side is cut up, knee is cut up. I ripped my shorts in half, put a hole in my vans, and broke my watch.
