Tragedy At The….World Sauna Championships?

Until about 30 seconds ago, I was going to write about former Tennessee Vol JP Arencibia and his historic Major League Baseball debut.  With his first four swings in the bigs he managed a measly single, double, and two homers.  But….he didn’t die so he gets trumped.

So as you can tell by the headline, someone died at the World Sauna Championship in Finland.  I will try not to speak ill of the deceased…but…are you serious?

Reports indicate that one of the two finalists, Vladimir Ladyzhensky, passed out seven minutes into the event.  The recorded temperature was a balmy 230 degrees Fahrenheit.  The other finalist was five-time champ Timo Kaukonen who was taken to Helsinki and treated for “severe burns” but is in stable condition.

Worthless

I just read the most worthless article I have ever read from ESPN.com and I am not happy that this is something considered news worthy. The cheater, tom brady, decided on a name for his recently born baby… and guess who couldn’t care less. That would be me. This has nothing to do with sports and ESPN shouldn’t be writing worthless crap like this and have it infecting their usually stellar website. This is just garbage. I wrote earlier this week about the Tiger Woods stuff that has been going on and how much I just don’t care, and how much it irks me to have sports-media reporting as much on athlete’s personal lives as they do with things that are actually going on in the field of play. Now tom brady decides on a name for his stupid kid and it gets a whole article written about it? Give me a freaking break. Continue reading

Trouble for Tennessee

I woke up this morning and went through my normal routine…get some cereal, check my email, check Power Mizzou, and check 3SIB.  Usually that makes for a pretty pleasant morning before I head to work.  Today, well, not so much.  I was greeted with the news that three freshmen from the Vols, Nu’Keese Richardson, Janzen Jackson, and Mike Edwards, had been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a gas station in Knoxville.  Awesome.

Two of the three, Richardson and Jackson, happen to be the prized recruits who were swayed from Florida and LSU on Signing Day last year.  This is also the first legal-related blemish on first-year head coach Lane Kiffin’s team record.  Boy, it’s a big one.
