The $1 Million Burger King

The moments leading up the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather fight proved to be more eventful than the fight itself. Jimmy Kimmel dressed like Justin Bieber as he walked to the ring with Pacquiao. Bieber escorted Mayweather along with another familiar facethe Burger King. The company reportedly paid over $1 million for the promotion, which, according to one Fortune writer, was a rather curious decision considering Mayweather's spotty background. In other fight news, Pacquiao will have surgery for a 'significant tear' in his rotator cuff and may face perjury charges for failing to disclose the injury. 

North Dakota No. 2's

The University of North Dakota has to find a new nickname to replace "Fighting Sioux" and asked the public for suggestions and it got ugly. The teams should be called "Flat," one person said, because "the whole crappy state is flat." Another suggested "Mountees," saying "I mean you guys are in Canada right?" One brave conspiracy theorist suggested Fantasies, "Because North Dakota is a made up state." My favorite is "2's" because (as one fan eloquently put it), "Not only does Grand Forks smell like #2, but UND takes #2's in all big game situations."
