It's time Carl Crawford is serenaded with "Check Yo Self."

I attend the University of Illinois, and a couple of years ago when Jeffrey Jordan (Michael Jordan's son) still played for the Illini, the players were having a dunk contest during Midnight Madness. Jeffrey at 6-foot-1 was participating, and throwing down monstrous dunks.
On one in particular, he must have been 40-inches off the ground and threw down a full windmill. As the crowd goes wild, the guy in front of me calmly leans over to his friend and says: "I bet he gets that from his Mom's side of the family."
I was laughing for the rest of Midnight Madness.
I was at a Minnesota Vikings game when I was 7 or 8, and I was at the souvenir stand alone without my parents, and this obviously drunken, redneck, middle-aged man points out a cheerleader calendar to me, saying: "I bet you're getting that for later, aren't ya?"
I then bought a hat. He then shut up, and later, I saw two security guards escorting him out of the stadium. Karma's a bitch, you perv.
They will be sanctioned by the NCAA in another state of being.
Holmgren's admission comes after yet another Philadelphia postseason has been done in by cheap goals from the opponent, a Flyers tradition dating back decades.
"We have long believed that the most aggressive team will win in the playoffs," said Holmgren. "That's why we always pull the goalie for the final 59 or so minutes of play. And while our players have performed well under that pressure, the better teams are able to capitalize on the open net."
Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette says he is open to the idea.
"Our guys work hard to prevent shots or block them," he said. "I'm sure it would really give them a boost if every shot the other team gets off doesn't always find its way into the back of the net."
Bin Laden competed in the "Death To America's Pastime League, LOL" on Yahoo Sports. The terrorist leader was reportedly on his laptop in his bedroom, working on trading Justin Morneau for pitching, when U.S. special forces burst into the room on Sunday.
"He was shot when he made what we thought was an aggressive move," said a U.S. intelligence official. "It turns out he was only motioning to click 'Accept' so the trade would go through before he was detained. Oh, well. I'm glad he's dead. Plus, Morneau for Kevin Correia is an insane trade. Morneau will turn it around."
Bin Laden's team currently is in 4th place in the 10-terrorist league, with the top three spots finishing in the money. First place earns the equivalent of $300 American, as well as a goat.
"It's not a fortune, but every little bit helps in recouping all of the money we spent capturing him," said the official. "I'm not sure what we'd do with the goat. I guess eat it."
