What a pisser: Browns fan who urinated on Art Modell’s grave facing charges (video)

Much like the rest of his Minnesota Twins teammates save for a few players having decent seasons, outfielder Oswaldo Arcia is having a season to forget.

Peyton Manning plays with his kids, gets ‘sacked’ by toddler son Marshall (video)

Typically during training camp, any contact with the quarterback, particularly one with the pedigree — and advanced age — of a Peyton Manning is frowned upon and viewed as an unforgivable transgression … unless it provides for an opportunity for an adorable scene to play out, apparently.

Browns reportedly ‘alarmed’ by Johnny Manziel’s partying, feel he’s regressed

Given his somewhat nefarious history and penchant for partying, not to mention his unorthodox style of quarterbacking, Johnny Manziel was perceived by many scouts, NFL front office types and others as something of a risk.
