You won the bid for the 2016 Olympic Summer Games over Chicago and Madrid and if there was any doubt as to why they were picked then you just haven't been paying attention to Rio...

No more Butts about it. Rio De Janeiro and Brazil deserved it.

I can't believe I never thought of this before. Semenholes is even funnier than Criminoles. FSU now sits at 2-3 after getting dismantled by Boston College. How does Bobby Bowden still have a job? I know he is just a figurehead and all but FSU has been on a slow decline for the past 7 years. He is still getting athletes yet they still can't score any points. If Offensive Coordinator Jimbo Fischer is suppose to replace Bobby then I guess that is one of the reasons why he is hanging on (actually the main one is because he wants to finish with more victories than JoePa) because Fisher's offenses have blown. I wonder if FSU fans still blame Chris Rix for all their troubles?


Kyle Stinkin Orton has replaced Jay Cutler in Denver and now has the Broncos sitting pretty at 4-0. Who would have guessed that? Don't even raise your hand liar. Brandon Marshall may be a pain in the ass to deal with in the clubhouse but look at what this psycho does on the field. He made the Cowboys look like Cowgirls. Fantastic.


ESPN disorderly personality Mark May made the above gesture when Lou Holtz mentioned Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen as a Heisman Trophy frontrunner after leading the Irish to their third straight last second win with a game winning drive. Clausen now leads the nation in passing efficiency while completing over 67% of his passes with a 12 TD-to-2 INT rate. But why would Mark May care? He would rather be doing other things apparently. Jimmy does appear to be the leading guy to win the Stiff Arm Statue because Tim Tebow is hurt and probably shouldn't play this week against LSU, Colt McCoy has been very average, and Sam Bradford was eliminated as soon as he went down with the shoulder injury against BYU. The only way Jimmy wins it though is if Notre Dame can beat USC on October 17th. Right now there is little doubt in my mind he is the best quarterback in the nation and he has matured into a leader. If Notre Dame did not have Clausen then they would be 1-4 right now. Seriously. If the Heisman goes to the best player in the nation then it would be hard to argue that Jimmy isn't it right now.

What do you guys think?
