Anyone else sick of seeing the midget as a commentator? This doesn't seem right that he gets on ESPN every year his team isn't in the championship. It seems like an unfair recruiting advantage, but mainly he just makes me want to puke. ...

In last night's Timberwolves-Mavs game, Kevin Love takes a last second shot with the Wolves down by 2. Shawn Marion clearly hacks him across the arm with a ref standing right there and he doesn't call the foul.
I've seen this in the NBA so many times it's a joke. How can anyone even take the leagu...

I am from Minnesota and I went to my first Auburn game in 2010 when Auburn beat LSU. I was amazed at the whole experience and told my buddies about it constantly. I finally convinced them to go to a game, and five of us booked tickets to the Georgia game.

There were a few posters on here a few weeks ago declaring that this is a down year for the SEC.

A Yahoo draft forecast has NINE SEC players ...

I think I remember a restaurant that had a beer float on its menu. I decided to try it tonight. I dropped some delicious Schwan's ice cream into a few ounces of Summit Winter Ale.
