Judge says NCAA athletes can pursue television money.

The story notes that this means the lawyers have real reasons to pursue this now...

This has been on like Donkey Kong for a while already. More than a dozen law firms have spent $20 million in legal costs pursuing the suit since 2009.

It was pretty ridiculous for the NCAA to share no money with former college athletes being shown in videogames and re-broadcasts of games and used on licensed merchandise. I'm glad the case is expanding to go after the holy grail of current TV money.

A sign at Nease High School declares its TV program "The Tim Tebow of Electives." He played for the school while being home-schooled in the area.

I so rarely get moments of glory that I must speak here.

I'm currently leading the Spofi Fantasy Hockey league. And this is my first fantasy league. And I'm finding it very exciting.

I am so screwed once baseball season arrives...

I wonder if this Raptor fan is happy Rudy Gay is playing for Toronto now?

Yep, I think the Raptors organization has their intro video for Rudy Gay.
