But, sometimes the best part about tithing (and then some) to Uncle Sam with the prospect of getting peanut shells in return is the ability to somehow link an Arkansas football coach with a Venezuelan baseball manager all in one week filled with buffoonery. I took a Sabbatical from this year’s NCAA basketball tournament focusing on what seemed like a fait accompli: me winning the Powerball jackpot. I went through the typical cycle. The delusions of grandeur. Telling all the superiors at my job where they could go — surprisingly they didn’t get the memo that the T.J. Maxx customer service department was my metaphor for Hades. Also, I had to decide which island in the South Pacific I would soon purchase and on which I would subsequently build an oasis made out of coconut sh...

2012 Coaching Carousel: Arkansas springs forward with firing of Bobby Petrino

NMA World Edition’s Petrino firing video report includes oral sex on motorcycle

Ha. Blown off the road, indeed.

Why It’s So Hard to Humble a Guy Like Bobby Petrino

I might be the only Atlanta Falcons fan on earth that still has somewhat of a soft spot for Bobby Petrino. Yes, I think his cowardly ditch of the Falcons when Michael Vick was carted off to face dogfighting charges was epically wrong. But Petrino entertains me with his slick (slimy?) ways–even his press conferences can be things to remember. You know, the kinda things that get...

Bikinis serve greater purpose at Games

The most eye-opening thing I've read online this week didn't involve Ozzie Guillen, Bobby Petrino or Facebook buying Instagram for a billion dollars. It was about the American media's fascination with and coverage devoted to women's bodies. And it was written by . . . Ashley Judd. Yes, Ashley Judd. In this revealing column written for The Daily Beast , the actress...
