• The Game 7 finale of the fantastic Penguins-Capitals series turned out to be a pretty boring blowout.
• Sam Young’s burgeoning NBA career may have been screwed up by a loose screw.
• Two strokes aren’t stopping an ump trying to get back to the Big Show.

You might not know the name Adam Frey. No, this isn’t the author Oprah just apologized to. Adam is a 23-year-old Cornell wrestler whose life completely changed last March after he got into a one-car accident on his way to class. Shockingly, he was unhurt in what looked like a brutal crash. But the news he learned at the hospital afterward was far worse than any injury he could’ve sustained in the accident.
A CAT scan taken to make sure he didn’t have any internal bleeding revealed that he was walking around with several tumors on his lungs, kidneys, and liver. A guy who had never smoked or done drugs and had been in incredible shape his whole life had cancer. He’s been documenting his battle with the disease online at ADAMFREY.US for the past year, and his latest blog entry is heartbreaking to say the least.
Love college football but not all the fat dudes? Ever dream of playing on the offensive line even though you’re the size of a jockey? Well, you’re in luck, because it turns out there’s a league just for you. And it’s sweeping…uh, at least six schools so far. Say hello to football’s little friend.
Sprint football is just like the real thing, with one major difference: You can’t weigh more than 172 pounds to play (finally, a league for guys like Lucas). Basically, just imagine 22 punters running around. Mansfield University is the latest of many schools to say “we’ve had enough of the big football” and join the small revolution. Or maybe it’s the only school to do that in the last 50 years. I’m still wondering whether or not they use one of those plastic novelty mini-footballs.
Cornell might still be the academic joke of the Ivy League, but yesterday the school clinched its first conference title in 20 years and an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament with a 86-53 win yesterday over fair Harvard.
Of course, the Ivy champion has lost in the first round of the tournament the last ten years running. It’s also the only conference that doesn’t have a tournament to determine its champ, because they’re privileged and lame. They think they’re so hot because the schools spend their endowment on things like education. Pfft. Losers.
