The biggest threat to America's national pastime is not the rising popularity of soccer, nor the chronic gaffes and serial dissembling of the NFL when the subject of head injuries arises. It is the formidable power of one of the most awesome collective forces in nature: concerned mothers.
Author Aaron Gillies posted a humorous graphic of commemorative guitar picks that depict the symbols of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games along with a simple explanation of each.

I'm really saddened by this. It used to be special every four years and the anticipation building immediately beforehand was wonderful.
Now? It's just the only avenue for gymnasts, swimmers, and maybe even boxers to compete on the world stage. Oh, and bad advertising opportunities.

In the last seconds of a brutally cold playoff game yesterday, the Vikings had the chance to kick an automatic chip shot field goal for the win and missed it by a mile. Fan reactions abound.

Curling, the ice sport with brooms, is roiled in controversy over - what else? - the brooms. Having evolved in recent years from its beer-drinking, chain-smoking, down-at-the-local-club roots, the friendly sport of curling suddenly has a debate on its hands that in some quarters has resulted in the civility, and even some gloves, being dropped.

Disgruntled fan Ronda Pearson used a stun gun on Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers on Saturday as part of a charity pledge.
Pearson was upset over the city's termination of lease for the Coyotes but was good natured enough to donate toward the charity before firing the taser at Weiers.

The Last Man Running is an annual competition of intentional ignorance as participants try to be the last person in the country to know who won the Super Bowl.
*...which, by the way, you just lost.
Jeb Lund takes the NFL to task with this scathing analysis of the league, the endless controversy that surrounds it, and the commissioner who keeps the wheels turning. That being said, GO SEAHAWKS.
November last year, Lynch was fined $100,000 for failing to show at a media event. He was warned that if he didn't make it to the Super Bowl press conference that he would be fined $500,000. For almost five minutes he took questions from behind the podium and responded with the same answer to every question.
