Top Sports Controversies of 2016

I'm not going to lie. It's 1 p.m. on one of the last week few days of the year and there's not much to write about. I did enjoy this look back at all the sports controversies of 2016 (see gallery below). The Laremy Tunsil gas mask bong remains my favorite. The MMQB had a really good piece about the whole incident. 

Grandma's Night Out

Enjoyed this story about 80-year-old Texas A&M fan Nina Burgess, who attended her first game Wednesday night (and got the VIP treatment) after her family surprised her on Christmas. It may not be a hot take but I call it the best moment in AdvoCare Texas Bowl history.

Tale of the Pants-less Plane Passenger

This seems like the plot of a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode, only there was no Larry David to yell at the pants-less guy.

Dogs in Costumes

As I said, there's not a lot to write about.

Whoops!

Wait, What?
