I has a sad this week. I broke the lens mount off one of my favorite lenses, a 18-105 Nikon. I dropped the camera, and then was switching lenses at my son's soccer game and felt a chunk come off the lens as I was switching it out. Damn.

Miami football ad: 'Go to fewer games' - SBNation.com
Miami football often has trouble filling up Sun Life Stadium on fall Saturdays. There has always been a number of reasons: small alumni base, a venue that's far from campus, plenty of other things to do in sunny South Florida, etc. Now the Hurricanes appear to have a solution for fans: don't bother.

OAKLAND -- You've presumably seen the word referenced in various columnists' inflammatory anti-NCAA screeds over the years. On Monday, in the first day of testimony in Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA, the nefarious-sounding noun entered the official record in a landmark federal antitrust suit, albeit in a strictly academic connotation.

Mississippi State assistant coach’s house the scene of heroin (and live chicken) bust | CollegeFootballTalk

Police in the Pittsburgh area arrested two men as part of a drug bust Sunday night in the home of Mississippi State cornerbacks coach Deshea Townsend. According to the team over on Pro Football Talk, police seized 1,500 bricks of heroin (75,000 stamped bags), 16 firearms, more than $100,000 in cash and jewelry, two luxury vehicles, Cuban cigars and a live chicken.

I'll bet that was one fucked up chicken.

"The Young Ones" ran from 1982 to 1984, prime time for me at the University of Nebraska. The story was four guys living together in a shithole of a house. The four guys - a punker, a hippie, an anarchist (Rik Mayall) and a short guy who tried so hard to be a mafioso. I loved that show. And now you tell me Rik Mayall is dead at 56.

Mayall, who was best known for the TV shows The Young Ones and Bottom, was believed to have been found by his wife at their home.

""Punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader.

And all the grown-ups will say, "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say, "Haven't you heard? Rick is dead! The People's Poet is dead!"
