    I was reading about the Texas player who was arrested on ESPN.com. The second paragraph was this:

    Brown has tested negative on a drug screening for cocaine and marijuana administered by the university, his attorney Jamie Balagia told ESPN's Joe Schad on Wednesday.

    I knew I should have gone to Texas!

    Ah, the perks of D-I sports. At Barton County Community College they only administer meth.

    I had a nice laugh after noticing that I misplaced my modifier in a comment about misplaced modifiers. It's pretty difficult to be arrested on ESPN.com. ;-)
  4. Heineken, I salute your ability to laugh at yourself. This business needs more of that.

    I noticed both and giggled. But I get your point.
