Playing the, uh, Swat Team card…

U.S. women’s national soccer team star Alex Morgan and her friends were kicked out of Epcot last weekend after being verbally aggressive with park security and other guests at a pub. They’d been playing a drinking game, “Around the World in Eight Hours”, which is self-explanatory, and actually sounds kind of fun. But, here’s a first. When security approached her, she didn’t go with the “do you know who I am” rant familiar to entitled celebrities and public figures. Instead, according to one officer on the scene, she made a “loud verbal statement that she knows the Orlando SWAT team.”

To Morgan’s credit, she sent out an apologetic tweet.

Washington State coach Mike Leach delivered the line of the week while describing the crowd following the Cougar’s upset win over USC: “It’s a good win. There’s a lot of people. It’s like Woodstock, except everybody’s got their clothes on.”

Talk about a serious insult to Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, how about the Virginia Tech fan who held the following sign prior to the Hokies’ loss to The Tigers: “Dabo’s mother makes dry cornbread.”

Lobster really is just a fancy way to eat butter, isn’t it?

Kansas City Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt is the early favorite for NFL rookie of the year and possibly MVP. Way back when, did you ever think you’d consider “Kareem” an old school name?

Looking for some motivation? Google U.S. Navy Seal David Goggins and listen to the man talk.

Anybody else hate when you’re at a public restroom and the toilet flushes before you’re done with your business?

Finally, I can already picture the hurt feelings prior to this year’s NBA All-Star game when captains–as voted on by the fans, select their respective teams? LeBron doesn’t like me…
