It’s NFL training camp time, which means it’s time to check in on Eddie Lacy’s middle, and also, apparently to check out some good-as-hell dogs. Washington cornerback Bashaud Breeland supplied the dogs.
NFL receiver Greg Jennings, who had a solid career and was a key cog in that tremendous 2010 Packers team, announced his retirement today. With Jennings leaving the league, now is a great time to look back and remember his greatest contribution to the game.
Paul Pogba is reportedly the subject of a massive bidding war this week, one which will end with Manchester United most likely paying a fee in the neighborhood of Guyana’s GDP for his services. Or maybe he’ll stay at Juventus. Who knows. The European press makes HoopsHype look like the goddamn Paris Review.
After 13 seasons with the Bears and Panthers, Charles “Peanut” Tillman is retiring from the NFL. He retires as one of the best fumble-forcing cornerbacks in the history of the game, knocking more footballs loose than any defensive back during his tenure in the league.
Spurs forward Tim Duncan will be deservedly revered for accomplishing many things during his spectacular NBA career. He won five championships, dominated the court with a subtle genius, and sustained a career-long peak of excellence that few other players can match. But most of all, he wore funny clothes.
Bruce Buffer, the octagon announcer for the UFC, was made to get on a stage and lip sync at some event related to UFC 200 in Las Vegas last night. Things went poorly, not only for Bruce’s pride, but for his physical health.
