Huge basketball star and Lawrence North alum Greg Oden apologized to fans this week for inappropriate pictures that popped up on the Internet. In a long statement, the giant said he regretted taking the photos of himself, saying it was “an enormous error, a really, really big, gigantic mistake.”

Sunday's Pro Bowl roster was finalized this week. This relieved local sports bookies and degenerate gamblers alike. The line currently has the NFC favored by 4. Area bookie Frank Encarnado said business has never been better.
“My Pro Bowl gamblers are the real deal,” Encarnado said. “These are the guys betting on Olympic figure skating once football is over.”

Jets use wrong formula against Colts in AFC title game
The New York Jets came to Indianapolis with what they believed was the winning formula last week. The team expressed extremely high confidence in their game plan and confidently set up their schedule for Super Bowl week. The Jets, who were considered the Team of Destiny, hoped to beat down a soft Colts team.
“We really thought our strategy from our first game would win again,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan. “We were certain the Colts would pull their starters once they got a lead. We just waited for that opportunity to pounce. Things didn’t work out, but know this; we would have rolled all over Kurtis Painter’s offense.”
Such bluster should be expected from professional athletes competing on the highest level. However, three of five ESPN expert analysts were also proved wrong last Sunday.
“The Colts are the worst 15-2 team in history,” said moron Keyshawn Johnson, fourth-rated receiver in his draft class. “Not only will Darrel Revis shut down the Colts passing game but Dwight Lowry is going to step it up.”
“The Colts have been too soft in the playoffs,” said mustached former NFL coach Mike Ditka, .500 lifetime playoff record.
“You have to play with the heart of a champion like I did,” said Cris Carter, who never played in a Super Bowl. He continued “J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!”
