Going out in style: Rick Reilly gets personal in final column; tributes from Peyton, Agassi, and more

As far as being alive to see your own funeral, Rick Reilly probably did the right thing in deciding to give up sportswriting. His farewell column on also included a special package with a who’s who in sports picking his favorite columns.

WATCH: Katie Nolan eviscerates Rick Reilly on 'Crowd Goes Wild'

During Media Day on Tuesday, Rick Reilly made a seemingly innocuous comment about Crowd Goes Wild host Regis Philbin, calling him "the little guy in the makeup." He also mistook Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas for Gabby Giffords in one of the more hysterical moments of the day, but that's besides the point. Although Reilly was trying to be funny, it sure did seem like...

Rick Reilly’s Super Bowl poem (Video)

Rick Reilly follows through on his bet and polishes Notre Dame Players Helmets

Sometimes you have to be careful what you say, and Rick Reilly has been ripping on Notre Dame all year.  He even wrote an article about how they were irrelevant and should stop acting so pompous.  Boy, did they ever prove him wrong.No way Notre Dame beats USC tonight.

Rick Reilly and Notre Dame: Takes one to know one

“And this offends you as a Jewish person?” --“No, it offends me as a comedian.” As I read Rick Reilly’s rip job on Notre Dame football this morning, I took umbrage. I borrowed against future umbrage, raising my umbrage debt ceiling. Sloan Sabbith cut short her raver in order to warn me about how much umbrage I had accumulated, but I cared not.

There has been a wide range of emotion and reaction in regards to Joe Paterno in the past week. Paterno's alleged role in the Jerry Sandusky case has been well-documented, and what has followed has been a wide spectrum of opinion.
