Should Penn State suspend football program?

About a month before he died, Joe Paterno reportedly wrote what his family called an op-ed piece. That missive was released earlier this week in advance of the damning report issued by former FBI director Louis Freeh, the findings of which were heavily critical of the university and Paterno for failing to prevent Jerry Sanduskys criminal and abhorrent sexual deviance. (See Freeh report.)

In Paternos dispatch, the former head coach asserted that "this is not a football scandal and should not be treated as one."

Paterno was wrong about that. What happened tarnished the universitys reputation, and it had quite a bit to do with the football program.

What we learned from the Freeh report is that Paterno, former President Graham Spanier, former Senior Vice President Gary Schultz and former Athletic Director Tim Curley all knew about Sanduskys monstrous predilections as early as 1998. Despite that, the report asserts that the quartet exhibited a striking lack of empathy for Sanduskys victims and, worse, concealed Sanduskys activities from the Board of Trustees, the University community and the authorities.

Bashaud Breeland whiffs on tee, should not become pro golfer

Bashaud Breeland whiffs on tee, should not become pro golfer

Bashaud Breeland is truly good at a lot of stuff: Covering NFL receivers, looking fresh at the Preakness and making you think with his tweets are just three examples of things the corner is skilled in. 

But on Monday, a video emerged on Twitter that revealed at least one area No. 26 struggles in: golf. Or, to be more specific, making even the smallest piece of contact with a teed up ball in no less than four swings.

Here's the lowlight, captured by Breeland's fellow defender Junior Galette. For any swing instructors out there, this footage could be considered NSFW due to the extreme absence of fundamentals:

At first, the third-year pro's stance isn't all that discouraging. But a few seconds in, someone (probably Galette) says quietly, "This is, I think, the fourth attempt," and it's at that moment that viewers understand what's about to unfold is going to go horribly wrong for Breeland.  

And it, of course, does, as he whiffs on the drive and then nearly turns an ankle on the tee box marker afterward. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry's heart will skip a beat when he sees that part of the blooper.

Here's Breeland's response to Galette tweeting the video:

Unfortunately for the 24-year-old, it looks like he's going to need more practice than 2002 Allen Iverson to fully fix what's wrong with his game.

High school senior takes Redskins cheerleader to prom

High school senior takes Redskins cheerleader to prom

Some people can say they took a cheerleader to prom, but how many of you can say you took a Redskins cheerleader to prom? Stephen Bieber can.

Bieber reached out to Redskins cheerleader Christa Aiken and asked how many retweets it would take for her to go to prom with him. She responded with "At least 10K!!" and the challenge was on.

Bieber did pass the 10,000 mark and to her credit, Aiken kept her word.

Now let's get this out of the way: it appears that Stephen Bieber is not related to Justin Bieber, so it's OK to feel happy for him. That's good, because Bieber did prom right. Not only did he get to take a Redskins cheerleader as his date, he also pulled up in style in a Rolls-Royce.

There was also dabbing:

Not surprisingly, it seems as if Bieber had some competition once he got to prom:

All in all, it looked like a pretty special night for Bieber. Thank goodness my prom days are well behind me because the bar has now been set pretty darn high.

Following James' sad flop, Galette posts his own 'LeBroning' video

Following James' sad flop, Galette posts his own 'LeBroning' video

During Game 3 of the Cavaliers-Raptors Eastern Conference Finals series, Lebron James was viciously elbowed by an out-of-control Toronto opponent. The extreme force from his attacker's arm propelled a tumbling James backward and onto the floor as fans shrieked in horror at the act they had just witnessed. Referees had no choice but to eject the man who initiated the earth-shaking contact from basketball forever, as one of the league's biggest stars writhed on the ground in intense pain.

Wait, hold on a second. A mistake has been made. The entire above paragraph is totally false.

That's the sequence you think would have happened on Saturday night, after seeing this absolutely absurd James flop:

As it turns out, the elbow that sent James sliding was that of his own teammate, Tristan Thompson. Furthermore, the blow simply glanced the Cavs leader on his chin, even though he acted as if he was just bashed in the mouth by an angry Rougned Odor. And because the flop is so ridiculous, Junior Galette wants to make fun of it.

The only problem is, he can't, because one time, he tried to win an Oscar for Best Actor in a Sports Game, too.

Check out what the Redskins' defender had to say on Monday:

The video Galette linked to does in fact reveal that, when he was a Saint, the 28-year-old tried to draw a personal foul penalty by flailing and falling versus the Dolphins. It was a bad attempt. A really bad attempt. So that's why, when people come after the King for his embellishment, you won't hear a peep from Galette.
