It’s pretty hard for me, as a jaded ex-sportswriter who knows how dirty and corrupt college sports really are, to be surprised by any new scandal.
The Reggie Bush-USC thing? Didn’t bat an eye. The Ohio State-Jim Tressel stuff? Yep, pretty much what I expected.
But Tuesday night Yahoo! Sports unveiled the fruits of an 11-month investigation into the University of Miami and one incredibly dirty booster named Nevin Shapiro.
And good God almighty, I cannot believe how explosive this story is. I mean, my jaw was dropping reading this.
Not so much out of shock, but of how blatant and out in the open this was, for EIGHT years at Miami, and nothing was ever done about it. (And the “Teddy Dupay” stuff is beyond hilarious).
Take a few minutes and start reading this; I guarantee it’ll be the most entertaining story you read all month.
Someone from The Sporting News said on Twitter Tuesday night said “this could end the NCAA as we know it.”
To which I say: It’s about time.
**I don’t know why stories like this interest me so, but they do.
A man in Florida (of course) who was really mad at his wife tried to run her over, but instead drove straight through the window of a Panama City Beach Waffle House restaurant.
Thankfully, this moron, Charles Patrick O’Bryan, didn’t kill anybody or give anyone life-threatening injuries.
What kind of a sick, deranged person goes off to hit another person with a car, and then drives through a restaurant window?
**I know I’m late to the party here, but I’m starting to finally get why so many people worship the comedian Louis C.K.
For years I heard stories about how awesome he was, and I saw some of his stand-up, and I was lust like, meh. But then I thought he was great on that HBO “Talking Funny” special, and I saw a few of his funny clips on talk shows. Finally, after reading so many raves about his current show on FX, “Louie,” I decided to start watching.
And I gotta say, it’s pretty damn funny. And very unlike 99 percent of current TV shows, in its format and pacing. He’s not for everybody’s tastes, Louie C.K., but if you’re smart and give him a shot, you can see how talented he is.
Instead of a clip from his current show, here’s something that I think showcases him really well. Here’s the first thing I ever saw Louie in, and it still might be the funniest few minutes he’s ever done. It’s from the first HBO show he was in called “Lucky Louie.” He sits with his daughter trying to explain the world to her.
