Jerry Sandusky.

Two words have never gone across someone’s lips with such disgust.  The man whose gross indecencies rocked a university, a community, a nation, will be sentenced today on 45 counts of child sexual abuse for molesting 10 boys over a 15 year span.  Most people are expecting what will equate to a life sentence as Sandusky is 68 years old.

Super middleweight champ Carl Froch calls out Kelly Pavlik

kelly_pavlikKelly Pavlik has to be pumped.  He has gotten, and won, 3 fights this year alone and wants a shot at the belt and now he just might get it if all the chips fall into place.

Carl Froch, the current IBF Super Middleweight champ told Radio Nottingham in his home town that he wants to defend his belt against The Ghost because Pavlik has been trashing “The Cobra” in the media.

“Pavlik has been calling me out, so I’d like to shut him up,” Froch said. “If we can get him over to Nottingham, that’s one the fans would want. He’s just one name, and there are a couple of other names that Eddie’s looking at.”

Or at the very least DiMuro should have his eyes checked.

Last night, during the Yankees game against the Indians, Jack Hannahan hit a fly foul ball to the seats that DeWayne Wise tried to track down.  His pursuit, and subsequent momentum, put Wise into the seats with the Yankees fans.  Obviously this is a hard feat, but not impossible.  We have seen many ball players make the catch and fall into the stands.  However, one thing stands blantantly clear between Wise and those other players.

They actually caught the ball.
