Million-dollar penalty

You had a better Friday night than this woman who should have won $1 million at a CFL game. She entered into a supermarket contest that would pay her $1 million if two kickoff return touchdowns were scored in the Winnipeg-Toronto game. That happened. But then it didn't.

Wimbledon Roundup

Garbiñe Muguruza ran through Venus Williams for her second major title(here are the best photos from her victory), while Roger Federer -- shockingly -- is aiming for another yet final win, this time against Marin Cilic. For the casual tennis fans, ever wondered why there is a golden pineapple atop the Wimbledon trophy?

Give me uniforms. All day, every day

Athlon Sports is going conference by conference ranking the teams by their uniforms. So far they have made it clear they do not ike Syracuse in the ACC or Iowa State in the Big 12 but approve of Illinois in the Big Ten ;and Alabama in the SEC.

Lovely Lady of the Day

Going down, why not take a shot

As Michael Scott brilliantly said, "You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take." Olympic track star Gil Roberts had a positive drug test so he blamed it on kissing his girlfriend. It worked.

Give me that steak stir fry

Colts’ running back Darius Butler is not the biggest athlete but he still eats like a champion. Check out his delectable food diary, which includes stir fry and a boat load of protein.

Stunning view

He is trolling, right?

Odds and Ends

You must see these unbelievably gorgeous high school football helmets ...ICYMI: Les Miles thinks Matt Holliday -- a former college football recruit TWENTY years ago -- would still be in the NFL today ...Torii Hunter told a cool story about playing catch with a kid in Connecticut in 1997 when he was minor league. The kid turned out to be George Springer ...Blake Griffin’s Instagram story debut was spectacular ...Paul George says Durant and Westbrook are buddies (and no one believe him) ...Mark Richt will change the way you eat sandwiches forever.

Nice arm

This is brilliant

After quoting Michael Scott above, I temporarily got lost in Office cyberspace and stumbled across a video that remade the fire drill scene as a dramatic movie trailer.
