Washington Generals, meet the J.A. Fair High School girls basketball team.
The War Eagles of Little Rock, Ark., lost 88-0 to rival Hall High after trailing 58-0 at halftime, but you can't say the winners ran up the score. Hall pulled its starters just four minutes into the game.
When it was only 28-0.
• At SportsPickle.com: "College basketball game played on wings of Stealth Bomber results in tragedy."
• At TheOnion.com: "Doctors refuse to clear concussed Michael Vick after he claims Eagles can still make playoffs."
"A Gallup report shows that Sunday is the day we spend the most time doing things we aren't good at," reported RJ Currie of SportsDeke.com. "Especially if you're a Jacksonville Jaguar."
Where there's smoke
"Now that Colorado has voted to legalize marijuana," noted comedian Argus Hamilton, "Denver may change the name of Invesco Field back to Mile High Stadium."
Not only that, the NBA Nuggets are working doubly hard on their pick-and-rolls.
Polish that brass
No. 1 in the poles? Hardly.
U.S. competitors failed to place in this year's World Pole Sport and Fitness Official Championship in Zurich, Switzerland.
"It's not as if there's a shortage of pole dancers in this country," wrote Rick Chandler of NBCsports.com. "Just ask the Ravens' Bryant McKinnie. What's going on here?"
• Brad Dickson of the Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald, on the nine youth football coaches in Florida facing charges for gambling on their league's games: "If these guys bet their mortgage on how a 5-year-old was going to perform, I think they're good to cop an insanity plea."
• Len Berman of ThatsSports.com, after $16 million-a-year Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter finished seventh in the MVP voting — one slot shy of triggering an additional $2 million bonus clause in his contract: "Time to hold a benefit."
• Blogger TC Chong, on Alex Rodriguez saying he's willing to be traded as long as he isn't turned into a full-time DH: "As witnessed during the recent playoffs, it's obvious that he still wants to play the field."
Caron Butler's NBA schedule precludes him from being on hand, but the Clippers forward is expected to donate 200 Thanksgiving meals to needy families in his native Racine, Wis., this week.
In other words, a no-look pass-out.
