    In the total dumpster fire that was the capital riot, there was an Olympian there. He stood out from the crowd because of his height, and was identified by the website SwimSwam as being Klete Keller. He was part of the mob that entered. This guy swam in three different Olympics and won gold in the 4x200m freestyle relays in both Athens and Beijing. What makes it worse was his choice of apparel - an officially-branded jacket that sported a United States Olympic Team Patch. He was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, obstructing law enforcement and illegally entering a restricted area, and released after an appearance in a federal court. Sources say he fell on hard times after the Olympics and was sleeping in his car after a divorce. I'm sad for him, and everyone makes thoughtless mistakes, but going to the riot, and then deciding to wear a Team USA Olympics brand jacket, is beyond me.

    What are your favorite Super Bowl ads with NFL players in them? I think an instant classic was NFL's '100-Year Game' one were they had dozens of players and coaches packed into one commercial.

    Ah man, you beat me to it. That was hands down, my favorite SB commercial with players in it. I think it's easily in my top 5 of Super Bowl ads, period.

    I'd say it's easily the Nets on this one.

    Really glad to see the Dallas Stars somewhere in there. :) But yeah, I think this list is pretty solid. I'd be saying differently if Tampa and Washington weren't in the top 5 at least.

    Yeah, I don't see how McGregor could lose this. He had ultimate advantage over Poirier physically and mentally. It always shocks me how much weight he can drop too. Looking lean and mean in that video.

    Yeah, Alabama's got this.

    From what I've read, the whole dance with keeping or getting rid of Herman and has caused waves. That, paired with stuff like UT leaking to the media that Charlie Strong was getting the axe, means any coach taking that job is on shaky ground as far as job security goes. Which is understandable why they'd go with someone like Sakisian and not one of the more desirable candidates.

    It doesn't look like he'll make a huge impact on bringing back UT's program. His work with the Huskies after Willingham's awful stint was just okay. Then his stint at USC. He was let go during the middle of the second season. The main thing to point out is that both of his successors at UW and USC surpassed his achievements. So that doesn't make it seem like he'll put UT at the top of the Big 12.

    Agreed, he's sort of a wild card in my opinion. I believe he was let go from USC because he had a drinking problem. I hope he's doing well though, and he makes some good changes to the program.

    Yeah, I've been saying this for a while that most professional sports leagues should change things up. They should follow NASCAR's example, they made some really positive changes. Looks like the NFL is doing the same.

    I straight up think continuing to play any sport right now is madness. For some reason I feel more for college players. Part of me feels like they don't have much of a choice but to play for fear they'll lose future opportunities. Schools still try to forcibly push their seasons into fruition, and I ask "at what cost?" The almighty dollar is running the show, and it's obvious. Just hear what some college coaches are saying.

    “I don’t think it feels right to anybody. I mean, everyone is concerned. I would just like for the safety, the mental and physical health of players and staff, to assess where we’re at. You have 2,000 deaths a day. You have 200,000 cases. People are saying the next six weeks are going to be the worst. To me, it's already pretty bad. On the other side of it, there are these vaccines that are coming out. By the end of the month, 20 million vaccine shots will be given. By the end of January or in February, another 100 million. Should we not reassess that? And see just what would be best? I know somebody will take what I’m saying tonight and make it like I’m making excuses. I don’t make excuses."

    Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski

    Iona men’s coach Rick Pitino tweeted, “Save the Season. Move the start back. Play league schedule and have May Madness. Spiking and protocols make it impossible to play right now.”

    I'm glad there are coaches and staff voicing their opinions. Hopefully this will invoke change.

    He definitely is a play maker. I was watching the video sorta with an NBA filter, like trying to imagine if it was an NBA game. Sounds silly, but I really could see him becoming an NBA great for sure.
