Yesterday, the fine folks at ESPN proved that they’re capable of more than throwing large sums of money at Skip Bayless to pretend that he knows about sports, when they posted the above picture to the College GameDay Facebook page. Within the seconds, the Internet exploded. In fact, if Twitter was a squirter, you’d still be clinging to your life on a broken slab of wood.
Thankfully, we’re all dry and some of us even have Photoshop, so obviously people were going to have fun with this one. It’s just a spectacular photo, this batsh*t old man and his giant rubber ducky. Granted, I’d rather have Samantha Steele in floaties, maybe splashing Erin Andrews, but we take what we can get.
I could have spent a day making dozens of pictures, but I’m already on my way to my own rubber ducky in the Caribbean, so you’ll have to settle for one above average original and my two favorite responses from the Interwebs’ best evil geniuses.
Crap, this isn’t what they’re talking about, is it.

ESPN‘s college football analyst Lee Corso is expected to fully recover from a minor stroke he suffered while trying out his new sex swing in his Gainesville-area home. No, it doesn’t say that in the press release. It doesn’t say anything, so I took an educated guess.
“This is just a small bump in the road,” Corso said in a statement issued by ESPN. “A ‘not so fast, my friend’ in my game of life. I look forward to making a full recovery and returning to ESPN for my 23rd season analyzing the greatest sport in the world — college football.”
Somehow Corso’s outlandish antics don’t bother me, and I don’t know if it’s because his style is better suited toward a college-aged audience or because the former USFL head coach is balanced out by level-headed analysis from Kirk Herbstreit (provided it’s not a Big Ten game being discussed). I’d say college football wouldn’t be the same without him, but that’s just one of those lies you’d say about someone just to make them feel better. It’s Friday and he’ll have no lasting damage from the stroke; if that doesn’t make him happy, that’s his problem.
