Which overblown story are you most tired of? Tom Brady’s slide, Beyonce lip-syncing, Manti Te’o’s imaginary girlfriend, Lance Armstrong interview, Royce White demands, Phil Mickelson’s taxes, or Lakers stink? 

I care the least about whether Beyonce lip-synced…

Jeremy Hellickson’s pitching clinic at Grand Slam USA Saturday should be full. When I was a kid, I would have hounded my parents to let me go. Plus, all $50 goes to “Kid Living Brave”. Nice job, Jeremy…

At least I didn’t mess up Greg and Doug McDermott. I’ve done that before too….

Drake beating Creighton surprises me more than Iowa State losing at Texas Tech, but it’s close. Didn’t expect either…
