Selection Headache For Eddie Jones Ahead Of England Tour Of Australia

Eddie Jones enjoyed a successful start to his reign as England coach, ending the country’s 13-year wait for the Grand Slam in the Six Nations.

The Red Rose defeated all comers to win the tournament for the first time since 2011, eradicating memories of their horror show at the World Cup.


The Spirit Of St. Louis, Ozzie Silna, And The Best Darn Sports Deal Ever

Most basketball fans will have no clue who Ozzie Silna is. Ask them about the Spirit of St. Louis and they will probably assume you are talking about the single engine, single seat plane flown by Charles Lindbergh in 1927.

Silna, who recently passed away at the age of 83, was the sports team owner every filthy rich guy wants to be. His team, the Spirit of St. Louis, was part of the ABA, a short-lived attempt at competition for the NBA. Together, and along with his brother Daniel, they were a part of the best deal ever negotiated in the history of sports.

Who Had The Better Knock Out--Boxer Gennady Golovkin Or MMA Fighter Yair Rodríguez? [VIDEO]

Fight fans were in lucky over the weekend. They got to start it off with some Bellator action on Friday followed up by some more mixed martial arts during UFC 197 and a middleweight boxing fight between Gennady Golovkin and some dude that didn't belong in the same ring with him.

Golovkin had no trouble with Dominic Wade knocking him out in the second round. As nice as his knockout was, there was one at UFC 197 that was better--Yair Rodriguez and his flying head kick on poor Andre Fili:

#UFC197: Demetrius Johnson Reminds The World You Don't Mess With Mighty Mouse! [VIDEO]

The big news coming out of UFC 197 was the return of Jon Jones to the Octagon, but the entertaining part had nothing to do with Jones. I was glad to see him back in action, but his fight with Ovince Saint Preux was flat out dull. OSP did a great job of running from Jones until he got tired after the third round. Jones could have finished him if he wanted to, but never pressed hard enough to land the kill shot. The fight was in a word--boring!

The Demetrius Johnson-Henry Cejudo one before it though--now that was entertaining! Johnson--better known as Mighty Mouse--proved once again that he is the man with an awesome first round TKO:

WATCH: Rashad Evans Got Knocked The *uck Out By Glover Teixeira #UFCTampa

I read some comments online that tried to say Evans wasn't knocked out; that the ref called it early because it looked like he was when he was just looking at one of the fighters from the undercard in the crowd. How he could do that with his eyes closed and his face in the matt is a mystery to me. So unless someone can explain how looking at someone can be mistaken for being knocked the *uck out, I'm just going to assume the poor guy was deebo'd.

Goodnight Mr.Evans.

Baylor's Taurean Prince Answers A Stupid Question With A Ridiculous Answer

The first big upset of this year's March Madness tournament occurred on Thursday when those smart kids from the Ivy League university of Yale beat the Baylor Bears 79-75. It was a pretty shocking outcome for Baylor and Yale fans alike (first tournament win in Yale history), but the best part of an upset is not the game. It's the answers the players from the losing (and heavily favored) team give when the media asks stupid questions like, "How did they do something better than you?"

One reporter asked Baylor's Taurean Prince how Yale out-rebounded the Bears. His answer was priceless:

Texas Players Get Bent Out Of Shape After Texas A&M Wins With 9th Inning Home Run [VIDEO]

There is nothing like a good rivalry getting renewed to get the blood pumping. Since Texas A&M left the Big 12 for the SEC, Texas has refused to play the Aggies in any sport up until the last couple years. I believe it was the women's basketball teams that broke the ice. This season the baseball teams actually scheduled a game against each other.

Said game took place Tuesday night in College Station. Even though the Aggies are No. 3 in the nation and the Longhorns are having a rough season you can never count a rival out. Beating the Aggies would make the season for the Longhorns.

Rugby Player Has To Get Stitches In Penis After Opponent Yanks Him Down By It During A Game

Kids--if you are thinking about giving ruby a try, do not let Mom or Dad see this post. The game has enough of a reputation for being violent, and just the thought of their baby boy or girl playing likely already has them concerned. Should they hear about a guy having to get stitches in his penis they may put an end to your rucking dreams before they start.

The unlucky victim was Haydn Peacock, a 23-year old playing in a French Federation of Rugby League Elite 1 match for AS Carcassonne in February.
