The right stuff

Erin DiMeglio is Florida’s first female high-school quarterback! It’s amazing, it’s history-making, and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

But it’s also time to get over it!

The kid has skills and she should be given the opportunity to prove exactly how bad-ass those skills are, instead of being patted on the head for being a girl who can play with the boys.

In the meantime, though … WOOHOO!


Manny makes more money than Kobe

Amazing, isn’t it? Manny Pacquiao makes more money than Kobe Bryant according to According to the website ranking of the 50 top earning athletes for 2012, Pacquiao made a total of US 62  million dollars last year, netting 6 million dollars from endorsements alone. This put Pacquiao ahead of both LeBron James and Kobe Bryant, who made 53 and 52.3 million dollars respectively.

Unfortunately, the politician-pugilist only came in a distant second in the list, falling behind his elusive nemesis Floyd Mayweather who rang in at US  85 million dollars. Looks like boxing isn’t the only thing Pacquiao has yet to beat Mayweather at.
