Soccer Writer Names Twins After Diego Maradona

Argentinian sportswriter Walter Rotundo named his new twin girls Mara and Dona, after one of the greatest soccer players of all-time, Diego Maradona.

You would think Rotundo, who covered Argentinos Juniors for the blog Pasión Paternal, would know not to name his kids after the guy who nearly died from his addiction to cocaine.

I know how important 1986 is to the country of Argentina, but last I checked, it had been 25 years now.

My apologies to the kids for any drug or alcohol addictions they pick up as a result of their names.

Heat Are Champions In Eyes Of The Miami Herald

If Chris Bosh balling like a girl and LeBron James‘ postgame comments wasn’t enough fuel for the Miami haters, this should do the trick.

The Miami Herald ran the following Macy’s ad in Monday’s paper, congratulating Miami on winning the NBA championship.

Oops.

Regardless of last night’s outcome, there was no way the Heat could have clinched the series before Tuesday. Needless to say, someone at the Herald is in trouble today.
