Haven't seen this much dry humping since Tim Tebow was playing with his Jesus pillow in Gainesville. Good lord people get a room. The only dry humping allowed in the Braves new SunTrust Park should be myself on Freddie Freeman's bat because holy shit is he hot right now.

We are less than a couple of weeks till the NFL Draft and it's good to see that Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey had enough preparation time to skip his team's bowl game in order to compete for fastest feet in the draft.
Yes that is not a sped up video of any kind and yes McCaffrey seems to be really fast when running in one place. It should work wonders for him in the NFL jittering like Tyrone Biggums on Red Balls.

Not sure what the point of McCaffrey (@CMcCaffrey5) posting a video of himself running in place was but it gave me an excellent reason to post a Tyrone Biggums clip so all is right in the world.
Also good to see the Broncos Brady Quinn jersey framed up along with a Thrashers jersey in the background. Like Quinn and the Thrashers McCaffrey should have a long and prosperous career running in one place.

Now this is how you christen a new stadium!
The Braves opened SunTrust Park on Friday and finished their first 4-game sweep (still undefeated at home) in dramatic fashion last night as rookie SS Dansby Swanson delivered the clutch bases loaded single in the 9th inning.
Swanson who came in struggling with the bat even though he's hit the ball solid just right at people delivered the first ever walk off hit in SunTrust Park history.
Swanson joins Hank Aaron (1966 - Fulton County Stadium) and Andruw Jones (1997- Turner Field) in the first ever stadium walk off department hits. With the win the Braves get back to the .500 mark at 6-6 and now welcome in their division rival the Washington Nationals. Hopefully the only thing cooling off the Braves was the ice bath Swanson received last night via teammates.
In the meantime #ChopOn and buy some shirts!!!!
Next season every NFL team will play one game with an alternate helmet called "Blaze."
Basically they reversed the color schemes making the secondary color of the helmet the primary and I got to admit most of them look great.
Check out all 30 NFL Teams Blaze Helmets here and let us know what you think.

Notre Dame's $400 million plus "Crossroads" expansion to fabled Notre Dame stadium is expected to be finished before kickoff vs Temple in early September.
First off thank god they are redoing the bathrooms. While it may be charming to some to piss in a nearly 100 year old urinal I for one hated the smell of someone else's urine that burned the nostrils upon entry. I don't want to taste the bathroom walls and floors when I'm taking a pisser either. But hey that's just me. The fact that they are renovating the bathrooms with new toilets but also making it look classic is cool.
I know the players will think it's cool but I'm a little disappointed they gutted the original home team locker room. I've been in the locker room a couple of times and you can't help but get those chills/goosebumps on the back of your neck when looking at it. And no I'm not talking about the creepy chills of a Penn State locker room. Just the aura of knowing Rockne and Leahy and Holtz gave inspiring pep talks to their players before battle was one to make the hair stand up and become fully aroused. Reminder again NOT LIKE PENN STATE SHOWERS.
At least the stairway to the tunnel from the ND locker room will remain the same. That's a tradition unlike any other and the players will still hit the Play Like A Champion Today sign. Also I think it's cool that the visiting team will come out of a separate tunnel. Hopefully the home crowd can give them an intimidating welcome as they come out of the new tunnel.
All in all I'm looking forward to seeing all the new renovations to Notre Dame stadium. The one I'm most looking forward to is the new video board which as you know ND has never had.

No lie the original "IT" movie with Pennywise scared the living the shit out of me as a kid. I literally went from being totally cool with going into sewers to get my Rawlings to a complete 180. In fact I don't think I've been in a sewer since the early 90's and I'm a grown ass man.
This new trailer gets my jimmies all rustled. It plays into not only my fears as a kid but now as a parent the worst nightmare of losing your child. Blood sucking clowns exist. I'm convinced. They are called politicians these days.
Here's Trimble's statement: pic.twitter.com/zWoDG3kmgQ— Roman Stubbs (@romanstubbs) March 29, 2017
Classy gesture by All Big Ten guard Melo Trimble to thank the Maryland coaches, fans, and school.
I remain torn on Melo's impact/legacy in College Park. When he came to Maryland as a scrawny little freshman I got Juan Dixon flashbacks going in my head. I figured Melo would lead the team to at least a Final Four if not a championship like Dixon did 15 years ago. They had the same game and could hit daggers behind the arc and were both local products. The problem was were Dixon continued to get better and his game progressed I really think Melo peaked his freshman season in 2014.
Melo did help take Maryland to 3 straight tournaments including their first sweet 16 in 13 seasons last year. I'll give him a big tip of the SportsCrack hat to that. But after finishing his junior season (first round loss to Xavier) no one can argue that Melo was a much better player three years ago. He could have been a lottery pick if he came out after his freshman season but now I really don't see him getting drafted. He's not a point guard and he's not a good enough shooter. He's also sloppy with the turnovers. His best shot is to go to Europe for a few years, hit some threes and bang some 8 and 9's.
Good luck Melo!
We got a ton of requests from Notre Dame fans and Alize Jones fans to make a Tic Toc Shirt. If you haven't heard Alize started the twitter hashtag #tictoc and it soon went viral. Now you can get the unofficial official Tic Toc t-shirt on our store page!
When the smallest guy on the Notre Dame football team, Nico Fertitta, is the only guy showing proper tackling you know new defensive coordinator Mike Elko has his work cut out for him. Granted we are only looking at a quick highlight video courtesy of Irish Illustrated but it looks like the ND secondary has a LOT of work to do. Maybe they should focus on the opposition's belt buckle and not their helmets. Just a thought.
