Sierra Leone's New Jersey Is Either Amazing or Absolutely, 100 Percent Terrible

As we saw earlier this week, soccer jersey sponsorship is big business.

Which leads us to Sierra Leone’s new kits, designed by Hummel. They are either wonderfully wonderful or tragically awful. You really can’t be ambivalent about them.

Look at that lion! It’s like a graphic found on a Cheap Gametime Beer in the Thursday afternoon Dick Joke Jamboroo, no?

Perhaps the better question: Where would they rank on a list of Oregon’s football uniforms?

Clippers Announcer Misses Game Due To Traffic

I’m sure you’ve heard stories about how bad traffic is in Southern California.

(As a Los Angeleno, I can tell you it’s all true.)

Los Angeles Clippers play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler fell victim to the traffic on Wednesday night, missing a rare Clippers victory as a result.

A series of fatal accidents on Interstate 10 made the freeway a standstill, making it impossible for Lawler to make it to Staples Center in time.

In case you’re wondering why Lawler couldn’t take the streets to work – he lives in La Quinta, Calif., 135 miles east of Staples Center.

You have to really love the Clippers to commute two hours each way for work.

Report: Dick Ebersol Takes a Tour of Golf Channel

NBC Sports & Olympics chairman Dick Ebersol was seen taking a tour of Golf Channel’s headquarters last week, according to Sports Business Journal‘s John Ourand.

Why is that important? It seems to signal that once Comcast (which owns Golf Channel) completes its acquisition of NBC, that Ebersol will be the one leading the new company’s sports division, which would include NBC Sports, Golf, and Versus.

Ourand also writes about a somewhat surprising development: the regional sports networks will probably not fall under Ebersol’s jurisdiction:

It appears unlikely that Comcast’s regional sports networks would be grouped with the national sports networks. Rather, sources say, Comcast seems to be leaning toward grouping the RSNs with NBC’s owned-and-operated stations.

That is a surprising decision, but one that will liklely make the NBC local stations much happier.
