ESPN's 30 for 30 series is one of the best programs on the network, consistently coming out with in-depth documentaries.
So the people at Yahoo! decided to spoof the series, with the movie Space Jam. The interviews, with Doug Gottlieb and Kurt Rambis, were perfect for the spoof.
It's often said that the two most criticized athletes in Detroit sports are the Detroit Lions quarterback and the Detroit Red Wings goalie.
Well Matthew Stafford and Jimmy Howard probably shared some stories about those criticisms. The two were at the "Detroit Legacies In Black and White" on Monday night at the Fox Theatre with their significant other, Stafford's girlfriend Kelly and Howard's wife Rachel.
The event honored Jim Leyland, and was hosted by Mitch Albom and Judge Damon Keith.
Who do you think has more critics: Stafford or Howard?
Mary Sue Coleman, the President of the University of Michigan, delivered a pretty shocking speech at halftime of Saturday's game against Nebraska. Some websites, like Deadspin and Larry Brown Sports, wrote that it sounded like Coleman was drunk.
She was definitely slurring her words, but the University released a statement that she had not been drinking.
"It was an unfortunate set of circumstances that led to the audio distortion ... She struggled with the feedback and tried to adjust to the sound delay and the reverberation by slowing down her words. She had hoped to communicate her gratitude for the recognition and her enthusiasm for Michigan," spokesman Rick Fitzgerald told the Associated Press' Larry Lage.
Mark Dantonio usually is seen as a very serious, ultra-competitive college football coach. Well after Saturday's win over Michigan, his fifth in six years, Dantonio opened up in the locker room. You can spot him in that video in the middle of the scrum, with a gray winter hat on.
It's pretty cool to see what goes on after a win in a locker room, where cameras usually aren't allowed...
