SB Nation reports that this is believed to be the new logo of the Dallas Stars. The owner wanted something with an “Original Six” feel, but I think he got something with more of a “Pest Control Company” feel. Seriously, if a superhero showed up with this on his chest, would you even ask him to help you? I would say “No”, and that’s “No” with one of these capital “N”s.

In a continuing attempt to convert the Eagles’ training camp into a makeover reality show, Chip Kelly has now eliminated “Taco Tuesday” and “Fast Food Friday”. He also is encouraging his players to get 10-12 hours of sleep a night, which is what he believes all elite athletes require. Can you imagine if this catches on league-wide?

Donovan McNabb has announced that he will retire this fall as an Eagle. I think McNabb was waiting for Andy Reid to be gone. If Reid was still the coach, he likely would have signed McNabb to a 1-day contract and then traded him again.

One of the joys of watching hockey online via a bootleg Russian gambling website is the popup ads. They always run two ads at a time, side by side, and sometimes maybe someone should check which ads are paired up.
