ALL SHOUTING, ALL THE TIME!: Joe Bartnick claims to have the "biggest balls in sports." Perhaps they are obscuring his punctuation keys. Hey, fans: Joe is avaliable for private and corporate events!

World Cups Awarded to Russia in 2018, Qatar in 2022

Heh. A friend pointed out that when you load in "Qatar World Cup" into Google and then start typing "a" it autocompletes to "Qatar World Cup alcohol." Stay thirsty, my friends.

She was not allowed to spike a volleyball. Or pitch a softball. Or smack a forehand down the line. Or run in a 5-footer for double bogey.

Now, that's deprivation.

Not tonight, honey, I have a game tomorrow.

Crash Davis: I never told him to stay out of your bed. Annie Savoy: You most certainly did. Crash Davis: I never told him to stay out of your bed. Annie Savoy: Yes you did. Crash Davis: I told him that a player on a streak has to respect the streak. Annie Savoy: Oh fine. Crash Davis: You know why? Because they don't - -they don't happen very often. Annie Savoy: Right. Crash Davis: If you believe you're playing well because you're getting laid, or because you're not getting laid, or because you wear women's underwear, then you ARE! And you should know that! Not really the idea behind the article, but . . . well, frankly, I basically am incapable of expressing myself without quotes from The Simpsons or Bull Durham.

"The guy said, 'Hit the net like any Negro would.'"

I'm pretty sure "assclown" was coined by Mike Judge for Office Space.

Tim Hardaway, the yin to Jon Amaechi's yang:

I'm here to help! "The gay lifestyle is for me," said James Miller, an Oklahoma City father of four who recently moved to Provincetown, MA, to pursue a career in bath-house management. "When I was a family man, I constantly had to worry about things like taking the kids to Little League practice, paying for their braces, and remembering my wife's birthday. But now that I'm gay, I'm finally free to focus all my energy on having non-stop, mind-blowing anal sex."
