    I 100% think the athletes should be paid. I have never seen a side that's been able to back up opposing that, at least not in a way that universally good for everyone.

    I also think there's about zero chance anything will come of this before the tournament, if any at all. That's their bread and butter.

    I hear ya. I can't stand when announcers use the wrong words or phrases. It's OK to say them wrong once or twice, but not repeatedly.

    The most important event for players to show what they have to offer the NFL is here. It's NFL combine time! Though we still have about 2 months until the actual 2018 draft, the combine is absolutely critical to everyone. So much info is still unknown or examined. Medical reports aren't completed. Scouts that have spent months/years evaluating players may have yet to even speak to them. So I can't imagine the stress of the athletes who finally get a chance to physically show the most important people what they can do.

    When talking prospects or show-runners, It's easy to go with players like Baker Mayfield or Saquon Barkley. But it's much more fun to predict the sleepers. The few that will stand out among the crowd, even though they were barely mentioned with the stars. The combine gives those the perfect opportunity to show out.

    Anyone have any sleepers you want to point out?

    They absolutely should be paid. To call them "amateur" is both disrespectful and just wrong. An Olympic athlete is the pinnacle of professionalism in sports. You cannot get any higher than that.

    It feels like they are called amateurs because they aren't paid millions of dollars....

    He seems like a really humble guy too. To see him break down like was really telling.

    Shaun White just pulled off the best halfpipe run I've ever seen. On White's 3rd run, he had to beat the 95.25 score turned in by Ayumu Hirano of Japan. So what'd he do? He topped it with a 97.75 to win the gold medal. It's incredible that he beat out all the new competitors and did two insane tricks he's never been able to pull off, all while coming back from a bad injury. He was practicing the 1440 (you see in the video) in October, when he smashed his face into the frozen halfpipe lip. A total of 62 face stitches and just a few months later, he wins the USA's 100th Olympic gold medal.

    That's crazy. I was lucky enough to just kind of naturally know how to ice skate. I got on the ice and had a good grasp of the mechanics within minutes. Not that I could keep up with a seasoned skater at all, but I could get around. But anything more than that is pretty scary.

    The fact they can do this at all, let alone under as much pressure as at the Olympics is incredible.

    What a crazy game! The Eagles have defeated the Patriots 41 - 33. That was by far the best Super Bowl I have seen in a really long time. To think that the Eagles would end up winning the Super Bowl a few months back was just insane. I was really afraid of Brady coming back late in the 3rd, as he's known for doing just that. But nope! The Eagles were absolutely prepared for that exact situation.

    Congrats Eagles!

    I'm really happy to see Justin Timberlake perform at this year's Super Bowl. He puts on a really impressive performance. He's also changed his style up and has been doing some really cool things over the past few years. I wonder what he's going to bring this year. There was rumor that with the Super Bowl being in Minneapolis, the show would have a hologram of Prince perform alongside JT. But apparently that was either just a rumor, or JT said it was in poor taste.

    I really hope they don't use the hologram. I can't see any situation where it would be appropriate. Unless, maybe the artist states that they would want that for themselves.

    Turns out they didn't use the hologram. Definitely a great show!

    Same for me. I love watching a good hockey game, but there's just so many unnecessary offside and icing calls. It makes for way too many pauses in the game. It also ruins opportunities for some exciting plays.
