Opinion Angry Birds: NFL Edition
At least they didn't write his name in coke.
The NCAA claims no knowledge of the negotiations.
"What? Ha! No, that's crazy talk," said NCAA president Mark Emmert, emerging after speaking to the negotiating parties behind closed doors which he insisted he did not just do. "College football remains completely on the up and up! I just wish they'd wrap up whatever it is they're doing in there because it's starting to get attention."
Emmert then stuck his head back inside the room and was heard loudly whispering: "Fellas! There's media here! They might be on to us. Go out the back door and pick up negotiations at a restaurant or something!"

The Gym: Issue #8

I was playing pickup basketball at the rec center at my college. In between games, one of the guys starts chatting with one of his friends that was walking by. He asked if the guy wanted to play, and the guy responded, "I can't, I'm only working out legs today and I've got a case race starting in an hour." For reference, it was 6:30 pm.
My gym has a digital board that wraps around part of the weight room and treadmill area. It runs gym notifications about hours of operation and specials and stuff like that, but it also runs "motivational" message like "Push yourself and see results!"
Last week, I don't know if someone new got the message board entry job or the gym manager had a brain fart or what, but while I was on the treadmill I saw the following messages mixed in with the normal stuff:
"Push yourself. Don't be a pussy!"
"Can't is a bitch."
This one time at band camp they overthrew the camp director.
