  • Joe Paterno

    The argument has been made every year: Joe Paterno should step down for the future of Penn State football. But for every bad year, as the hot seat got hotter, JoePa seemingly came back with a better season. But, after the sexual assault scandal, there's no argument to be made that things will get better for Paterno. His great contribution to the school in time and financially, perhaps more than any coach has done in history, no longer applies.

    In the last four days, Penn State officials have been getting crushed by the media and by fans for their handling of charges of sexual assault allegations that inexplicably reached a dead end without being reported. How is this possible? How can the state be working on a two-year investigation and Spanier and Paterno, in their first public comments, act as if they were blindsided?

    As the Penn State sexual assault allegations and perjury claims swirl, I wondered how Nittany Lions alums were taking the news. Would they let the legal process play out or had they already decided what to do with their money or their tickets? Here are some thoughts from PSU fans on Twitter.

  • Does Fox Have To Buy The Dodgers Again? Wednesday, 2 Nov 2011 | 2:16 PM ET
    LA Dodgers

    Early this morning, Major League Baseball and Frank McCourt issued a joint statement saying that they agreed to recommend to the bankruptcy court to hold an auction for the sale of the Dodgers. When prospective owners are bandied about, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban comes up first, because he's a fan's owner and he has the cash. But Cuban told the LA Times yesterday that he wouldn't be interested in the team if the price was over $1 billion. Who else gets in? I think Fox, which sold the team, stadium and parking lots to McCourt for $421 million in 2004, could -- and might have to -- throw its name in the hat again.

  • NBA Lockout

    After a marathon bargaining session yesterday that ended in the wee morning hours, NBA commissioner David Stern and union president Derek Fisher emerged with a cautiously optimistic outlook. One of the reasons why is because the players get their last check on Monday and, suffice it to say, there's quite a few that need those checks to arrive in the near future.

    Earlier this month, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick tweeted: "Check these prizes from the McDonald's monopoly game," and included a link. Next to the tweet it said "spon," which I assume meant sponsored. So I called up McDonald's and asked them if they were now sponsoring Michael Vick.
