this may be of some local interest
According to some reporters online, UM had a designated 5am lineup time for the students today. But when some students showed up early, the school threatened to arrest them.
Some U-M students said they lined up at 5 a.m. and were threatened with being arrested -- because they arrived too early. #huh— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 23, 2014
Getting tweets from Michigan students who arrived before the designated 5am line-up time. School allegedly "threatening to arrest" 100+ fans— Brad Galli (@BradGalli) February 23, 2014
Seems a bit excessive
Very OT but I mean, you guys. Never have I seen a baby seal get clubbed like this. Tre Lynch got 27 points. Enough to beat the entire CBC team. By himself. Twice.
Mods, delete if too dumb of a topic.
Rural Brazil, God Damn. Ref ejects soccer player, player tackles ref, ref stabs and kills player, player's family dismembers, beheads, and puts ref's head on a spike. WTF.

As one of the steps to make the Pro Bowl more interesting, NBC Sports is reporting that the NFL may pay out "incentives" over the course of the Pro Bowl for performance. Plus plans to possibly make the game more "game show" like. Hopefully one of those crazy Japanese gameshows where ten tons of exotic bugs are dumped on someone.
What's odd of course is that any kind of incentive for play is basically a bounty and doubly so for defensive players if you are paying them per sack, ball strip, tackle for loss, etc. It's why I find the NFL so interesting, a complete lack of morals by the management. They go scorched earth against anyone involved in a team level bounty, but the following season they talk about installing a league supported system.
That being said, it is likely a pointless gesture, in that whatever pittance the NFL bounty is, it pales beside the contract of a veteran pro bowler and I can't see a smart player risking injury just to collect a trophy and 20k.
So I had almost completely forgotten that college hockey was still going on. In what is absolutely the weirdest frozen four I have ever seen we had Yale beat Umass-Lowell 3-2 in OT and Quinnipiac is currently up 4-1 on St Cloud State with 5:00 left in the 2nd
I haven't followed college hockey as much this year with Michigan being awful, but what a weird frozen four. Four nobodies in the college hockey world with it looking like it's going to be a Yale-Quinnipiac final.
Feels like a fake championship. Anyway, just wanted to share because I don't know if we'll ever seen a frozen four this weird looking again
"On Wednesday, the team signed a fourth quarterback, Stephen Garcia, immediately placing him on the one-game injured list.
Garcia injured two fingers getting off the bus and flashing the peace sign, according to the organization."
How is that even possible?
EDIT: The story is a fake
