No need for Roger Goodell to celebrate his upcoming birthday.

He gets an outlandish gift every day of the year. He made 35 million last year operating that obscure little non-profit organization of his.

Marshawn Lynch's 100k fine for not talking to reporters paid for roughly one day of Goodell's overall compensation.

Lynch got fined and Goodell got paid for doing the exact same thing: avoiding the media.

It's going to take a hell of an effort to change the NFL's tax exempt status, but the fight is already well underway.

I just caught up on Liverpool/Tottenham. One of the most exciting games of the season. Harry Kane looks like he's going to be something special for England.

Nothing like a world record ski jump.

Almost ran out of slope.

Thanks, bluemagpie, that was an awesome jump.

Wow. How often do they have to adjust the length of the slope?
