Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

In sports, everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like Oregon's LeGarrette Blount (not pictured) who only played two games this season, but left his mark on both. And on a couple of faces.

Blount only got nine carries last night—probably because he missed 10 games this season after punching Boise State's Byron Hout on opening night—but his 12-yard TD was a huge moment in the Ducks comeback win over Oregon State, in his final home game. Now he's literally being lauded with roses. That's quite a year.


I think maybe that Blount has it figured out. Why destroy your body for 12 grueling games, when you can get yourself suspended, show up to rescue your team at the last possible moment, still get to play in the Rose Bowl, and save your knee ligaments for the NFL Combine. He's crazy, all right. Crazy like a duck.


Let's watch that punch again, huh? Just for old time's sake....


Honorable Mention: Adrian Peterson, for proving that his BMW can travel 109 m.p.h. Yes, he was in a 55-m.p.h. zone, but his car his made out of that Nike snake skin stuff, so he was protected.
