The “news” reports that the Gores are splitting up. I guess Tipper got tired of hearing about Manbearpig.

Scott Wampler asks whether Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter or Madonna in the upcoming Disney movie Alice in Wonderland. Check out his photographic evidence!
I keep seeing trailers for the upcoming film Brothers, starring Toby Maguire, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal. I really don’t have any interest in the film, but one of the trailers said something interesting – “Three of the greatest actors of our generation….”
That made me stop. Really? These three are some of the greatest of our (my) generation? Really? Are all of the actors of my generation that bad? Only one of the three of them has won a major award, Natalie Portman. And no, it wasn’t for her fascinating work in the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy.
I’d like to invite Lane Kiffin and the other pansy coaches of the SEC to quit whining to the press and to handle their complaints in a manner that isn’t going to take up space in my sports news reading. I’d also like to invite ESPN, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, and each and every other sports news agency/ affiliate to stop getting a hard on and showing it to the world every time one of these second graders complains to the press.
Most people that I talk to agree that high-profile athletes aren’t worth their salaries, regardless of their talent and what they do for our favorite teams. And it’s strange to see how that attitude is starting to apply to coaches. For example: I think Urban Meyer is an amazing football coach and I’m very grateful for what he did with the University of Utah program, leading us to our 2005 Fiesta Bowl win. But now he’s whining to the press about how SEC refs blew a call against the holy child Tebow (the call didn’t even determine the outcome of a game).
All of this crying has led to the decision by the SEC to no longer hand out reprimands but to start fining or even suspending coaches who act like 8 year olds. I think it’s a good move.
Okay, I’m done.
To sweeten the pot, Obama has redesigned the Olympics brand to better reflect his image. Not only will the Olympics rings be replaced with Obama’s ubiquitous campaign iconography, several new sporting events will be added to provide a more “Chicago” feel.
Track and field events will include Bail Jumping, Legal Hurdles, Blame Throwing and the always popular Graftathalon. Secondary competitions include such Chicago favorites as Freestyle Corruption, Under-the-Table Tennis, Greco-Roman Racketeering and Fencing. (Due to the recent ineligibility of ACORN, Ballot Boxing and Synchronized Vote Fraud have been cut from the program.)
Jon continues his snark here.
