Snark Break...

Has anyone noticed that pop-up ad on Sportsnet's website that temporarily covers up all the content on the page? It's kind of an improvement, isn't it?

Burned-out Experienced journalists know that there are stories that can be recycled every year and you have just have to change the name and dates. "Miami Dolphins desperately seeking starting quarterback at training camp" is one of 'em.

From Al Michaels on NBC last night: "It would be easier to access Amnesty International's website from downtown Beijing than get a 100% accurate NFL injury report." (Incidentally, here's what Amnesty International has to say about China.)

The Blue Jays' Double-A team hit back-to-back-to-back homers yesterday. Don't worry, though, J.P. Ricciardi has already released all three players for their brazen display of a long-ball power.

Forty-one world swimming records have been broken in the past year. It's all because of those hi-tech swimsuits. Sure it is.

One take on this whole "starting at shortskirt, Erin Andrews" kerfuffle: Never trust a species that can't stand the site of its own skin. (It's especially hilarious that the writers of sites that dress up posts with pictures of hot women "just because" think they have the right to judge.)

The Sporting News college football preview has projected Central Michigan and Cincinnati to meet in the International Bowl in Toronto in January. If it was Eastern Michigan (it's in Ypsilanti — so much fun to say!), then maybe people would start getting excited.

Remember Puck Daddy's Gary Bettman art contest? Here's all 230 entries.

It's good to know someone else has discovered the secret pleasure of listening to the Southern-fried announcer. - Watch more free videos
