Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers leads the NFL in receptions and now, apparently, in identity crises. Some questions and non-answers from a conversation with reporters yesterday, as captured by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Spurs are up 2-0 at the half against Swansea thanks to Heung-Min Son’s magic in stoppage time. We told you!
With Manchester City losing 3-1 to Chelsea in stoppage time, Sergio Agüero apparently wasn’t ready to start taking things easy.

The NCAA has punished a former Appalachian State assistant football coach who violated bylaws by texting a prospect’s mother 416 times.
Jon Jones failed a doping test before UFC 200 this summer because he took an off-brand Cialis pill, he said on the Joe Rogan Experience yesterday. He told Rogan that he has a huge cock, and that he takes male enhancement because it “it puts the twist at the end of a punch” and “it’s a good time” while pantomiming a…

It’s El Clásico time again, which means it’s time for the sports world’s fiercest rivals, Real Madrid and Barcelona, to square off in the Most Important Soccer Game in All of Human History—or at least the biggest one since the last time the two met.
