Chris Evans profile: The chequered career of a motor mouth - BBC News

Among the cars he's owned are the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and James Hunt's winning Formula 1 Hesketh 308.

Evans takes over for Jeremy Clarkson. I know little to nothing about him, although, hey, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and being married to Billie Piper isn't too bad on the resume.

Blaming LeBron James for the Cavaliers' final loss is dumb -

LeBron James was brilliant against a great team with awful teammates. If you're looking for reasons to hate LeBron James, this isn't one of them.

The NBA finished. Someone won a title and it wasn't LeBron James.

3 things we learned from the USWNT's 1-0 win over Nigeria -

The United States have won Group D, and will face a relatively easy road to the World Cup semifinal.

One thing most enjoyable about the women's game. If they get injured, it's just an injury and not a Greek tragedy and international incident all at once, it's just an injury.

Joe Paterno Will Headline The Pennsylvania Sports Hall Of Fame's 2015 Class - Black Shoe Diaries

Paterno will be joined by two former players: Chuck Fusina and Matt Bahr.

As would be expected, Joe Paterno makes the PA Hall of Fame.

Eastern Michigan’s coach thinks Baylor and Duke have been just as impressive as Ohio State - Land-Grant Holy Land
Ohio State won a national championship! Northern Illinois made a BCS bowl that one time! You be the judge.

College football's likely adding an early signing period. Who wins and loses? -
The new rule raises obvious concerns for many players, while benefitting a large number of schools.

B1G 2015 // On Iowa & the B1G's Season Tickets - Off Tackle Empire

A comprehensive look at Iowa's season tickets when compared to the remainder of the Big Ten.

Not just a look at Iowa (although, wow, they're very proud of themselves), but at the entire Big Ten on football season tickets. Nebraska is about where I'd expect them to be, not at the top, but nowhere near the bottom either.

The unwritten rules of hacking another team's computer system -

The Cardinals hacking scandal isn't just about broken federal laws and espionage. It's about the most important unwritten rule of all.

This is pretty stupid, given the level of lawbreaking you're committing and what you hope to gain from it. There has to be some return, right? I mean, I freely admit I'd embezzle from an organization, but I'm not doing it for any less than $100M. Otherwise, what's the point?

The FBI shouldn't take this as a joke. They should find the persons responsible and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law and make sure that it's covered by as much media as possible. They should make sure that it doesn't happen again, and if it does that the people committing these crimes are fully aware of the consequences.

I'm biased here. I live in the IT world. The attacks are ever more prevalent and ever more sophisticated. I'm for anything that raises the profile of security, even though I realize it probably won't help much.
