Have some extra cash floating around your bank account? And a huge CFL fan?
If you answered yes to both — and haven’t stopped reading yet — you might be interested in bidding on some Warren Moon memorabilia at SCPAuctions.com.
The Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall Of Fame inductee is selling some of his wares, including four Grey Cup championship rings.

In all, 72 items are up for auction, which also includes jackets, helmets, trophies, watches, equipment and other assorted autographed merchandise. No reason is given as to why Moon has decided to sell off his football possessions.
Although the items went up for auction in November, there are only two days left to bid.
For those that don’t know, the retired quarterback once held numerous career records, including most passing yardage, most passing touchdowns, most pass completions and most pass attempts in professional football, which includes the CFL and NFL. They were surpassed by Damon Allen and Brett Favre.
Qatar is hosting soccer’s World Cup in 2022. It gets hot in Qatar, with daytime highs during the summer hovering around 40C. Something has to be done about all that oppressive heat during the competition.
Architects were tabbed with designing a stadium to stay cool with air conditioning. They unveiled plans for Al-Wakrah Stadium, which will allow sunlight through a gaping hole at the top.
Unfortunately, the design — which is supposed to resemble the sails of a dhow boat used for pearl fishing by Qataris — comes across as a woman’s vagina.
“Al-Wakrah is the first of six stadiums already in the latter stages of the design process, our committee has issued 10 major tenders to the market encompassing project and design managers and stadium-operation consultants,” said Hassan al-Thawadi, the general secretary of Qatar’s 2022 committee.
Judge for yourself by watching the promotional video below:

BuzzFeed Sports’ Twitter feed (@BuzzFeedSports) apologized for an insensitive tweet about ESPN sportscaster Stuart Scott, who wore gloves during Monday Night Football between the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers.
Scott has been battling cancer off and on since 2007.
Sometimes, poking fun at people for the way they dress is not a good look. We don’t know exactly why Scott was wearing gloves in the first place, but judging by the responses to their tweet, it looks to be health related than anything else.
Narvik Arctic Eagles forward Adrian Alvarstein promised his fans that if the team won their game last Saturday against Viking Hockey, he would celebrate after the game.
And by celebrate, he meant dance on the ice. Watch below to see his moves.
Hockey blog Puck Daddy has the story behind the player.
Alvarstein was born in 1991 in Swaziland, a small southern African country that is wedged between South Africa and Mozambique, according to an interview in 2012 with Norway’s government-owned radio and television public broadcasting company NRK. He was found on the steps of a church and sent to an orphanage. He was eventually adopted by a Norwegian woman who could not have children and started skating at a young age.
What do you think? Was it a great way to celebrate a win, or did Alvarstein go overboard?
Can someone point out a mixed martial arts fighter who doesn’t have a nickname?
There is Canadian fighter Georges (Rush) St. Pierre, Quinton (Rampage) Jackson, Maricio (Shogun) Rua, Chuck (The Iceman) Liddell and Anderson (The Spider) Silva just to name a few. In fact, practically every fighter has one.
Some are great, some are OK and some are downright terrible.
But there’s no denying you’d like your very own MMA-style nickname, right?
That brings us to the MMA Nickname Generator. Simply type in your name and chuckle at the suggestions that come up. On my first try, the following popped up:
Spiro “Ink Spot” Papuckoski
Spiro “The Amateur” Papuckoski
Spiro “The Perp” Papuckoski
Spiro “Tree Trunk” Papuckoski
Spiro “Deacon” Papuckoski
Of the five, I’m partial to “The Perp”.
After having some fun with the generator, let’s get serious. What do you think are the better MMA nicknames out there?
