Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
• What was hyped as the potential fight of the year between Paul Williams and Sergio Martinez merely ended up offering what's being called the "Knockout of the Year." Williams seemed to be doing a'ight until Martinez caught him with a left hook in the second. He fell to the mat face first. He got Deebo'd. [Press of Atlantic City] (H/T Photos E.B. Lea and Tom B.)

• One of life's befuddling mysteries solved: How Michigan cornerback Troy Woolfolk came to be nicknamed T-Woolf.
When I was in the zone, I took on qualities that no longer paralleled the qualities of the Troy character people previously knew. I personally think this other character is a little crazy. For example, where do you think my paws tattoos came from? I don't like pain, so that was not my idea. He clearly made that decision. I needed to clear up the confusion so I decided to give the person you see on the field a name, and the name I chose was T-Woolf. T-Woolf is only about two years old now. [MIchigan Daily]
For fuck's sake.

With their backup goalie. [Philadelphia Inquirer]. You bet your ass I'm psyched Ryne Sandberg's been hired to manage the Phillies Triple A team in Lehigh Valley. In fact, I'm already trying to get an audience with His Ryneness. [ESPN]
Happy Sunday, y'all. Time to dance.
