The Pro Bowl was last weekend in Hawaii. To give you an idea how seriously the players take it, the AFC was penalized for holding a luau in the huddle.
A woman in a bikini streaked the Pro Bowl. The league is so desperate for TV ratings she was removed from the field after 45 minutes.
Reportedly Commissioner Goodell may be close to getting rid of the Pro Bowl because its time has passed. It will be replaced by an NFL players’ tweet-off.
Last Monday night Plant City, Fla. DE Sedrick King committed to Nebraska. I don’t know much about Plant City except apparently they don’t get The Weather Channel there.
King made a “hush-hush” visit to Lincoln in mid-January, where he was shown videos on global warming.
Shawn Eichorst has now been Husker athletic director for one year. That works out to roughly 897 “no comments.”
Eichort has proposed upgrading the sound system at Memorial Stadium. There’s irony — a guy who never makes a sound who wants to upgrade a sound system.
There’s an allegation Lolo Jones was chosen for the Olympic bobsled team partly based on her large number of Twitter followers. You don’t know how close we came to U.S. brakeman Faux Pelini.
Mexico has one entrant in the Winter Olympics. That has to dull some of the prestige of being chosen to carry the flag during open ceremonies.
The Jamaican bobsled team has qualified for the Winter Olympic Games. And even these guys are going: “I can’t believe NU has a beach volleyball team.”
The U.S. Winter Olympic team’s mittens,, which read “Go USA” were made in China. The Winter Olympics don’t begin for a week but I’m already having a blast.
Doug McDermott hit the winning shot with 2.5 seconds left in the win over St. John’s. McDermott is now like Daniel Boone, only with a bigger legend.
Creighton men’s basketball set a new attendance record in the win over Georgetown. It was so packed there were six elderly women raising the roof.
Friday night Creighton will hold Lumberjack Night with fans attired in beards and flannel shirts. That sounds an awful lot like any Lancers game.
Nebraska basketball coach Tim Miles helped a guy propose to his Husker fan girlfriend, and she said yes. Do you get the feeling if Barry Collier had assisted, she would’ve said no?
A high school basketball game in Washington state went into overtime. The would be winning lay up then got stuck on top of the rim. OK, here’s your real Game of the Century.
That sounds like something that’d happen to the Nebraska men’s team when it finally has a chance to win an NCAA Tournament. “The ball’s stuck!”
Saturday afternoon UNO women’s basketball team hosted IUPUI, for my money one of the more reliable credit bureaus.
NBA Commissioner David Stern is stepping down after 30 years. In his tenure Stern presided over 30 NBA Finals, thousands of miraculous shots, hundreds of last-second victories and two traveling calls.
TD Ameritrade Park was ranked No. 16 on a list of “top stadium experiences.” It would’ve been top 10 had anyone ever actually witnessed a home run there.
The Nebraska Legislature is considering a bill that would force powerhouse high school teams to move up in class. You know what that means — Omaha Central basketball to the Summit League.
If you think the Nebraska Legislature has better things to do, you haven’t lived here long.
Texas Ranger pitcher Derek Holland suffered a knee injury that may keep him out till midseason after tripping over his dog. That sounds like unbelievably bad luck, until you learn the dog’s name is Wrigley.
And finally: There was just an outdoor NHL game at Yankee Stadium. Idea: keep the penalty box and make A-Rod sit there all next season.
