Sports fans see and hear a constant stream of predictions. Most are wrong. However, Sporting News not only nailed the Packers' 15-1 regular-season record in its Aug. 29 issue, the magazine even successfully predicted that Green Bay's lone loss would come against Kansas City. That's impressive.(Thanks to Brian Wagner, of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., for the link.)
Bullies
Guyism.com posted this last week, but it got lost in the holiday shuffle. They have found the dirtiest high school basketball team in the world. The school, the coaches, and the referees should be embarrassed.
This Guy Should Be Everyone's Favorite College Basketball Player

Not Necessary
During Sunday night's Cowboys-Giants game, I tweeted that it was lame and cheesy for NBC to pipe in Salsa music after Victor Cruz's touchdown. (Cruz does a nifty Salsa dance after each touchdown.) There was some controversy on Twitter about whether NBC piped in the music or whether it game from the stadium. Deadspin confirms that it was indeed NBC who added the music. NBC, of course, is the same network Bob Costas was on a few weeks ago when he went off about premeditated touchdown celebrations in the NFL.
That Would Be Awesome, Baby!
Everyone's favorite sideline reporter was recently interviewed by GQ, and she dropped quite an interesting nugget. Erin Andrews says Dick Vitale and Digger Phelps want to do Dancing with the Stars.
Congratulations
Soulra XL
Mike Reed, of Columbus, Ohio, is the winner of the Hot Clicks Pick NFL 'Em Contest. With the help of his 17-year-old son, Nick, Reed went 157-99 for the season. He would've made out nicely had he been betting legally (of course). But for this contest, he's won a Soulra XL, a portable sound system for iPod/iPhone that uses solar power, along with a bunch of DVDs.
