Wawa Honors Service Members Killed in Afghanistan

Earlier this week we took a shot, in fun, at Wawa for potentially settling a class-action lawsuit by issuing gift cards so it’s only fair to report something awesome they’re doing.

The Wawa at 904 Haddonfield Rd, Cherry Hill, NJ left out thirteen cups of coffee, in honor of the thirteen service members that were killed in Afghanistan.

*Updated* Report: Big 12 Eyeing Three from The American and BYU for Expansion

Texas and Oklahoma’s move to the SEC is setting the table for a survival of the fittest contest between The American and the Big 12. One, the Big 12, is looking to stay at the adult table and the other, The American, is looking to upgrade from the kids table.

According to ESPN and The Athletic, the Big 12 is looking to strike first and snag Central Florida, Houston, and Cincinnati from The American. The Big 12 is also considering extending an invite to BYU, the largest independent not named Notre Dame.

Quantity over quality.

Bishop Sycamore Players Make Allegations of Forced Theft, Inhumane Living Conditions, and Attempted Murder

Holy shit, this story about Bishop Sycamore is spiraling out of control!

A quick recap, Bishop Sycamore is the “high school” that duped ESPN and some of the most prestigious football programs in the nation into believing they were an actual program.  They’re sthick was outed after they lost 58-0 to IMG Academy and ESPN announcers had no idea who the kids were. It turns out the school doesn’t really exist, some players were 19 or 20-years old, coach Roy Johnson had an arrest warrant for fraud, potential players were told they were going to be on Netflix and the list goes on. 

The list really goes on and it now includes allegations of theft, inhumane living conditions, and potentially an attempted murder. 

Complex, link here & here, spoke with multiple players about the allegations:

Steve “Mongo” McMichael Struggling with ALS

Well this is just damn sad. Former WCW wrestler and NFL champion Steve “Mongo” McMichael has been diagnosed with ALS aka Lou Gehrig’s disease.

McMichael spoke with the Chicago Sun Times about his diagnosis and how he’s coping with the debilitating disease, It’s worth your time to read.

Link Here.

“Mongo” rose to stardom as a member of the Chicago Bears in the 1980’s. McMichael was originally drafted by the New England Patriots, 3rd round, 73rd overall in the 1980 NFL Draft, but was cut after one season. The rest they say is history. He would land in Chicago and go on to be one of the lynchpins of their 1980’s defenses which culminated in the Bears Super Bowl XX championship. He was twice selected as a first team All Pro, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, and a three-time second team All Pro selection.

McMichael would retire from football and find his way to the squared circle first as a commentator on WCW Monday Nitro and then as an active performer. Mongo would become a member of the famed Four Horseman and won the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship. It was clear that WCW was trying to take advantage of McMichael’s name value and personality because he wasn’t a very good wrestler.

Here’s to wishing Mongo the best as he fights this awful disease.

ALS has no known cure at this time however there are numerous charities working to cure this disease. If you feel the need to contribute may we suggest the ALS Association of Greater Philadelphia.
