has anyone mentioned the unmitigated joy that will be found in ignoring the CBC's new reality show "Battle of the Blades" in which former figure skaters are paired with former NHL players in a kind of "Dancing with the Stars" psychodrama? Considering the NHL players include notorious ladies' men such as Claude Lemieux, Ron Duguay, Tie Domi and Bob Probert, while the figure skaters are all angelic little virgin tinkerbells, it is something you will not want to watch, not even ironically, not even Tivo'd, not out of the corner of your eyes, oh no sir, never eh.

Lane Kiffin isn't sleeping. He hasn't been able to sleep for several days now. He must have something on his mind. Things he previously said about the Florida football program, perhaps.

No one questions Pierce's courage. He may have a warrior's heart but after two concussions this season, and five in the last 11 months, there are fears over how many more hits his head can endure.

I'd argue that it's already had its share. Five concussions in 11 months? Would a boxing commission even clear this guy? How can a football league?

Is it just me, or is there something really seriously wrong with this page? And how does one go about making it stop?

OK, I want to see Ti Domi drop the gloves with Tara Lipinski. She'll kick his double axel.

To follow on from yesterday's "Guys in the Nude" theme, started by goddam, I present this:

Giant Bee takes Out Streaker.

The celebration afterwards is pretty cool, too.

Jeez, back in the olden days when a mascot made an awesome take-down of a streaker, he acted like he'd done it before. Show some class, Mr. Giant Bee, show some class.
