Quick Hits
  • Free Man. Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose was found 'Not Liable' on all counts in the rape case against him. We don't have anything funny to say about that, so watch this Reading Rainbow theme song remix.
  • Running Back Is Back. Human GI Joe, Christian McCaffrey, Stanford's star running back, returned to practice after leaving with an injury during the team's 42-16 collapse against Washington State. Cardinals everywhere are hoping he can return to being the team's entire offense during Saturday's matchup vs. Colorado.
  • 4-6. Big Ben Roethlisberger is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. As if that wasn't bad enough, the injury came in a game the team lost to the Miami Dolphins. We're not sure which hurts more.

The Main Event
2016 belongs to Cleveland.

For those who just arrived on Earth, back in June, LeBron "The Walking Advertisement For Cleveland" James lead the Cavaliers past the favored Golden State Warriors to bring Cleveland their first sports championship since 1964. The win was so important to the city that fans nearly killed themselves to watch a shirtless J.R. Smith parade around the entire city.

Keeping pace with the Cavs, the Cleveland Indians are now four wins away from bringing the city its second championship in one year. If Cleveland fans literally ate shit after one championship win in 52 years, imagine what they'll eat for two championship wins in one year. Standing in the Indians way will be the winner of the NLCS between the LA Dodgers or Chicago Cubs, who are currently suffering the longest World Serious championship drought with 107 seasons (Cleveland Indians are second on that list with 67 seasons).

For those waiting on the Browns, keep waiting. They're the only 100% defeated NFL team this year.

Good Sport
Game 5
This year's WNBA Finals is about as hot as it can get... for something on ESPN2. Tonight's last game of the WNBA Finals pits the LA Sparks against the Minnesota Lynx, two of the leagues top franchises. When it comes to championships, the Lynx have been the team to beat as of late, winning it all in '11, '13, and last year ('15). In this series, both teams have yet to win at home or win consecutive games. Based on that, we'd have to give the edge to the LA Sparks, who will be traveling to Minnesota after the Lynx won Game 4.

Bad Sport
Zebras Blew It
With the game on the line, the referees for Sunday's matchup between the Atlanta Falcons vs. Seattle Seahawks not only blew an obvious pass interference call against Richard Sherman (what else is new?), but they made this poor little girl cry by doing so.
