What was read this week…

I am always a fan of Jason Whitlock and this week he brought the heat on the lack of responsibility of NFL players and how it effects the CBA … http://bit.ly/fCIH5O

Dan Le Batard (Bam!) writes a great sporting news piece on sport journalism and how deadspin.com is changing the game probably for the worse … http://bit.ly/flo5zJ

NFL Hall of Fame…fight

These sports writers are fighting like a bunch of sixth grade girls over a Justin Bieber poster.  It started with another Whitlock article and then it got ugly… http://bit.ly/gnNRyE

Then Len Pasquarelli took offense and started calling Whitlock an idiot.. http://bit.ly/g7t8CM … Apparently having an opinion is offensive.

Economics:

Great read about bailouts…Yeah I know it is a little late but great read by two economists … Becker … http://bit.ly/e7X9dG and Posner … http://bit.ly/eMqSSk .  This was a homework reading for my economic class.

Everyone likes to talk about outrageous profits for health insurance companies but this blog puts into perspective what these “outrageous” profits really truly are… http://bit.ly/hjRs3m

I guess this weeks reading consisted a heavy dose of sports and economics.  Have a good one….

Great article on National Budget by John Stossel.  I am hit and miss on how I feel about Stossel … http://bit.ly/fqqXlV

This is worth the picture alone … http://bit.ly/dEeaBC

To get you ready for the Super Bowl this is a great profile on the Steeler’s head coach Mike Tomlin … http://es.pn/eicUo2
