You probably remember Brian Bosworth as the crazy linebacker with weird hair who was good in college but sucked in the NFL and once got trucked by Bo Jackson. Regardless of what you know about The Boz, though, you probably wouldn't expect him to be the kind of guy who sends tweets like this from The xx concert:
For several years I worked for the now defunct ESPNOutdoors.com and on a number of ESPN Outdoors TV shows. A couple of times a year the website would cover these massive annual trade shows that affected hunting, and we'd descend on giant convention center halls in Orlando and Las Vegas that were packed with camo and…
You're probably used to this sort of subtle cudgel being twirled at cities like New York and Boston, which tend to chew through their heroes just as quickly as they can exalt them. But Tim Keown's piece in the current issue of ESPN The Pulp-Based Periodical is one of the rare stories that quietly rips a place with…

This is what the New York Daily News has suggested, due to some of the recent problems suffered by members of the cast of Michael Lewis's book-turned-sapfest. It's even ensnared Lawrence Taylor in its wickedness.
Warning: the image after the jump, of Florida Gators running back Jeff Demps's elbow doing something it's not supposed to, isn't for the squeamish. So go ahead and skip it while I mock you by prancing around the room daintily.
An arbitrator has ruled that his demotion/dismissal from the Philadelphia Inquirer way back in January 2008 was "unjust", and has ordered the negotiation of an "appropriate remedy". I'm sure we could come up with a few suggestions.
Orthopedic Hall of Famer Dr. James Andrews has saved the careers of countless athletes with his special brand of ligament justice, but occasionally he makes an oops and cripples healthy people for the rest of their lives. No one's perfect.
Remember that rather gauche Sports Illustrated South Africa fake-cover ad campaign? The one with Der Führer getting the ol' SI jinx dropped on his head? Well, the magazine now claims it didn't like the ads, either.
It appears Mickey Rourke has backed out of his proposed WrestleMania bout with Chris Jericho. The rumor is Rourke feared "real" wrestling would hurt Rourke's Oscar chances. [Ring Posts]
Although it's now scheduled for the Saturday before the Super Bowl, Lingerie Bowl VI has risen from the ashes. And it was saved by a nudist resort. I love America. [Monkeys Throwing Darts]
Sometimes choosing which college football games to watch is tough. Particularly since, unlike the NFL, the games kick off at odd hours, on odd stations, with odd match-ups. And there are so damn many of them. As college football has become more commoditized the top 2 or 3 games soak up 99% of the attention and the…
I've had this same black leather bag from Dell that my laptop goes in since I went to college. I think my dad gave it to me.
Well, it appears everything can't work out this offseason for the Mets. The sign guy died. The Phillies are once again the team to beat in the National League East.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have stormed into the playoffs with a bandwagon that has quickly filled near capacity. Well now they've got something even better going for them. When the Jags take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second game of today's wild card double header they'll have a porn star in their corner. Thanks…

The recent surge in baseball stadiums encouraging fans to send text messages to show on the scoreboard is an encouraging one; we've heard rumors of a "You're With Me, Leather" at Busch Stadium, though no screenshot exists yet, and we haven't hit the zenith of a "Get Away From Me, Carl Monday" at Jacobs Field so far.
