Long-time NBA player David Wesley is now a student manager for the Baylor Bears. Wesley made $32 million in his NBA career, making him the richest man to end up passing out towels since Conrad Black.
The upside of William Houston stepping away from The Globe & Mail: Team 1200 employees in Ottawa won't have to read that their station "is hurting."
The New York Knicks' trip to Europe next season has apparently been deep-sixed. That's good. People hate America enough already.

Some people pay money to see Eklund's phony trade predictions. The funny part is you can see them for free, which is what they're worth.
This post is worth nothing, but this is worth noting
- Kingston minor hockey product Mike Murphy of the Belleville Bulls got some virtual ink from Sports Illustrated. S.I., much like John Tavares last night, failed to notice Taylor Hall. That was a heavy hit.
