You've Got To Be Joking

Sit back and relax as you enjoy this week's sport shorts.

The South Korean city of PyeongChang has declared its intention to bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics. The announcement comes as something of a surprise when you consider the amount of money they’ve already spent on vowels.

The Milwaukee Brewers have announced they will be making postseason tickets available to their fans for the first time in 15 years. That slight nip in the air you feel is the beginning of Hell freezing over.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has kicked off a five city tour of Asia. You know, I still remember when he only had to travel to Canada to find people who didn’t hate him.

An Illinois baseball fan has built a one-third-size replica of Wrigley Field. It just goes to show you how much you can accomplish when women never return your calls.

A punter who was cut last week by the Patriots was charged with attempting to beat up his father later that night. Luckily he’s just a punter, so no one was injured.

New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas is expected to be in a Manhattan federal court all week as his sexual harassment trial gets underway. It’s amazing what some coaches will do simply to fit in with their players.

Sources indicate that Baltimore Orioles outfielder Jay Gibbons received shipments of steroids from 2003 until 2005. Given his mediocre stats at that time, the news is expected to be far more crushing to the steroid industry than it will be to Gibbons’ career.
