Found June 20, 2013 on Fox Sports:
A pit bull rehabilitated after being used as a top fighter in the dogfighting ring bankrolled by quarterback Michael Vick has died. Officials at the Best Friends Animal Society say Lucas was euthanized Wednesday because of accumulating health problems. Nearly two dozen of the Vick dogs were rehabilitated at Best Friends in Kanab, Utah. Lucas was one of two not allowed to be adopted because of his history as a fighter. So, he spent most of his time lounging in the administrative offices at Best Friends, where he was widely known as one of the friendliest dogs at the sanctuary. Gregory Castle, the CEO at Best Friends, says it was ''a blessing in every way to be around him and to witness the wonderful effects on everyone he met.''

DeSean Jackson jumps off balcony into pool

If you haven’t heard Instagram has video now, so DeSean Jackson decided to go YOLO with the videos. 1st video was about Jaccpot Records (I have no idea what he is saying) because he wants to be a rap mogul more than a football player these days. The last video though is something the Eagles and their fans might not like. It is one thing to jump into your pool from a safe distance...

Philadelphia Eagles QB Matt Barkley is making arguably the best impression that I’ve ever seen from an Eagles rookie.  Yes, he’s a quarterback and they typically garner more media attention because of their position (hence, more opportunity to make an impression), but there seems to be something different about Barkley.
