What Was This End Of The World?

Enough said.

Adios, Phillies Post-Season, Hello Real NFL Referees

Goodbye to the post season for the Phillies.  For the first time since 2007, the Philadelphia National League Baseball Club LLC will not have any October run.

And hello real NFL referees.  Took us the Inaccurate Monday Nightmare Reception to get rid of thesre Pop Warner officials:

The End of the World As We Know It…

Forget the Mayans.  Penn State, once a great college football power, is facing what could very well be the harshest penalties since SMU because of the Sandusky scandal.  I’ll update you through the day.

UPDATE (9 AM EDT):  First, they took down the Joe Paterno statue and an artist removed the halo from his image on a mural following the infamous Freeh Report Witch Hunt Novel, and now it’s time for the piper to get paid.

Four years without a bowl, a $60 million fine to be used toward establishling child abuse program around the country, loss of ten schlorships per year as well, vacate all wins from 1998 through 2011 and the athletic department placed on five years double secret probation for this.  Unfair.  Completely unfair.

UPDATE (11:10 am EDT):  The B1G just tacked losing next four years of the conference’s bowl shares of over $13 million.

Paging Ms. Jackson (If Youre Nasty)…

Well it looks like the NFL won’t have British rapper M.I.A. to be invite d to any future league endorsed events after delivering the Stone Cold Salute during Madonna’s halftime performance.

One Thing Before I Forget…

Merry Christmas.
