This is why you go to ESPN for your sports fix. It's because they have on-air talents like Mike Wilbon who are so enthralled with the games they cover that their expertise is regurgitated by the masses who can't think for themselves. According to BustedCoverage Wilbon was taking his son to his first Cubs game vs. the Yankees this weekend. Now granted baseball isn't the most exciting game to watch but you would think a professional like Wilbon who is paid for his opinion on sports could manage to keep his eyes open for his son's first Wrigley experience.
Not so much.
We ain't mad at ya Wilbon. We know you were shotgunning beers with the Bleacher Bums before the game started. It's the only thing exciting about being a Cubs fan. Old Style me bitch!

Don't worry Braves fans. It will be at least another 4-5 years before Jason Heyward is in the Bronx wearing the pinstripes. Just take solace that the Braves are preparing him for his prime seasons in New York before he gets his huge contract. And if you think I'm joking I'm not. Heyward grew up a Yankees fan. Not a Braves fan. We obviously know he loves money. There will be plenty for him up in New York.

And this is why winning the Stanley Cup is the shit. In Vancouver they are literally ripping apart the city as they riot. In Boston on the other hand they are out partying and racking up over a $156,000 in drinks at a bar. It also goes to show you how cheap Boston is. I mean seriously these guys just won you a fucking Cup! Can you not dish out some dough and buy these guys their drinks? Fucking Massholes.
/broke Atlanta Thrashers fan who is extremely jealous that well...you still have a fucking team.

Chicago's Daily Herald will apparently be looking for a new editor starting today. Instead of acknowledging the incredible domination that 22 year-old "Rory" McIlroy demonstrated at Congressional with a 8 stroke victory they called him "John." Johns are dudes that buy prostitutes. Rory is getting all the free ass the world has to offer for the next...oh...rest of his life.
Here is a twitter picture of Rory slugging some Guinness from the Cup. Awesome.

Yesterday Auburn football players started tweeting out pictures of their brand new championship rings. And in case you were wondering if Auburn was going to keep their BCS Championship kind of low key with all the controversy surrounding Cam Newton well then you don't know shit about the SEC. It's all about the bling!
Kegs N Eggs points out the players received a SEC Championship ring, a BCS Championship ring (which apparently uses the Lombardi Trophy instead of the Sears), and a NCAA Championship ring. I'm not going to lie. All 3 of those rings look sweet. And in case you are wondering they are not real diamonds like the Super Bowl rings. The max value that the NCAA allows per ring is less than a $500 while the NFL rings are worth well over $5000.
Now the question is which ring will appear on Ebay first and by what player? I'm going to go with the SEC Championship ring.
