Also, Eagles thinking of sacking their own quarterback

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 - 2:14 am

The Pittsburgh Steelers wore throwback uniforms that featured bumble-bee like stripes in their win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. All NFL teams learned a valuable lesson from the game: The only known way to stop Robert Griffin III is to throw the “hideous uniform formation” at him.

Vick can't stop anyone

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick might be benched in the aftermath of the Eagles' loss to the Atlanta Falcons because. That makes sense because, clearly, when a team gives up 30 points, it's the quarterback's fault.

Logos might not be their biggest concern

Major League Baseball apologized to the Houston Astros for leaking the new logo they plan to use as they switch leagues next season. The Astros had wanted to unveil the logo Friday to officially kick off their switch from worst team in the National League to worst team in the American League.

Whoa, what just happened?

The San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers in four games to win the World Series. The domination even surprised Tigers manager Jim Leyland when someone inadvertently woke him up toward the end of Game 4.

Some injuries are worse than others

University of South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore hyperextended his right knee against Tennessee. It was so gruesome to watch, even Joe Theismann had to look away.

Next man up, and the next, and the next

Idaho has dismissed two players, including starting quarterback Dominique Blackman, and suspended a third, about a week after firing coach Robb Akey. On a positive note, the marching band sounds great during warm-ups.
