The Calder Trophy is the NHL's rookie of the year award. Danny Dekeyser was a candidate as well.
Congrats to him, his NHL future is bright!
Nathan McKinnon wins, and deservedly so.

It had been reported in the past that Madonna and her daughter were visiting/considering Michigan. As reported by the Freep, it is now listed in Michigan's directory that she will be a freshman in Michigan's School of Music, Theatre and Dance.

When does this animal get banned from FIFA permanently? Third time he's done it. What kind of deranged mind does this? I don't care that he's the most exciting striker in the world -- the fact the's done this 3 times, including twice in about 18 months, is proof enough. Ban him permanently.
LFC fans -- you can't seriously support this animal, can you?

Starting next week, USC will begin to offer four year scholarships in revenue sports, as opposed to the current one year renewable scholarships almost all schools offer.
"In taking this action, USC hopes to help lead the effort to refocus on student-athlete welfare on and off the field," - athletic director Pat Haden
Definitely not the first school I expected to see leading the way on this, but props to them for starting the process.

Maybe, just MAYBE, it'll make its way down to SEC country soon.
