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.


•Canada had an epic collapse at the World Junior Hockey Championship. Going in to the third period up 3-0, this happened. (Ignore the music. [On second thought, don't. It's awesome.]) (Screengrab via Steve)

•The NFL essentially prints its own money at this point. ESPN has re-upped its deal for Monday Night Football, just a single game each week, though 2022-23 at a cost of nearly $2 billion a year. Just promise me Gruden will find another job by then.


•The Vince Young era comes to a fittingly anticlimactic end in Tennessee, with Bud Adams announcing that they'll be moving on without him. So, Arizona now, right?

Stephen Strasbeard!

•Matt Millen admits he "stunk" at being a GM. Now admit you stink as an analyst too, and maybe we can start a dialogue.


Morning. Let's go.
