1. All Hank's Rowdy Friends Are Leavin' Monday Night

After 22 years of getting ready for some football every Monday Night, Hank Williams Jr. has been officially pulled from ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcasts thanks to his comments that compared Obama to Hitler. For good measure, here's the first time the spot ever ran, back in 1989. (Side note: Dan Dierdorf looks exactly the same).

Insert sad, dramatic violin breakup music here.

First place gets $600. Attention John Axford--even if your Brewers don't win tonight, you and your mustache can still be champions. Lancaster's calling your name.

5. Steve Jobs: Impact On Sports

On Wednesday, we lost one of the greatest innovators the world has ever, and will ever see. Here's a look at how his legacy will shine on in the sports world. And along with millions tweeting their love for Jobs, former Jet Damien Woody voiced his respects and then posed a powerful and appropriate question in regards to the unity of the nation and the world in their mourning: "Why do we have 2 have tragedies like this happen 2 bring ppl together?"
