Baby Named “Krimson Tyde Steele”

From Deadspin, news of a baby named Krimson Tyde Steele.

Why? Because ROLL TIDE! (Cough.)

From Deadspin:

A couple in Alabama named their newborn boy “Krimson Tyde.” In case you couldn’t figure it out from their kid’s name, they’re big Bama fans.

Deadspin writer Samar Kalaf then goes on to offer suggestions for a different name for the child that would still honor their fandom. “Yellow” and “Ess E. See” are my personal favorites. To be fair, the list does start with “Nick.”

Ah, sports.

Rutgers Mike Rice Practice Video Is Disgusting

Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice was fired. ESPN has video of why.

The video shows Rice doing the following during practices: shoving and grabbing players, hurling basketballs at them (at least once at a player’s head), and verbally abusing them by “screaming obscenities and homophobic slurs.” The latter refers to a word that begins with the letter F and ends with “got.”

The firing was announced via Twitter. I still find that odd although it is convenient.


Apparently there is another wrinkle here. ESPN reports that a Rutgers employee was fired and it may have been for telling the administration about  Rice’s behavior. Here’s a video about that.

It is beyond belief that anyone would behave in this manner and be able to get away with it for any length of time. College sports are screwy.

Breaking news: Rice says he’s sorry. (Scroll way down on the page.) OK.

Practice video shows Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice berated, pushed and used slurs against players – ESPN.

Max Kellerman Speaks Truth About Joe Paterno Statue (TMZ)

The Joe Paterno statue is coming down, and Max Kellerman tells TMZ that it’s “about time.” It’s always nice to hear someone speak the truth, especially when it’s so obvious and so few people are saying it.

The whole culture of JoePa worship has baffled me since I became aware of it. I’ve been saying for years that I believe college football is inherently corrupt. Read more »
