Denver Broncos Fining Players for Passing Gas In Meetings

First, this isn't hockey related at all, but I did find this story amusing. Apparently, the Denver Broncos are fining players who pass gas in team meetings.
Von Miller said the Broncos have a fine system for, um, flatulence in meetings. Said he thinks he's been fined the most. — Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) June 3, 2015


Since I've received numerous inquires about the Broncos' Fart Tax, I'm gonna let Von explain. NFL dieting ain't easy. pic.twitter.com/OTAAaI8t82Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) June 3, 2015
According to Men's Health, it's bad for your to hold your flatulence in.
If you’re sitting in an all-day meeting, don’t resist letting one loose: Gas is air trapped in your body, so it has to come out sooner or later, says Dr. Bechtold. And while the odor itself isn’t like milk spoiling—growing stronger with time—holding back one fart now may lead to you letting three rip at once. (And that includes not only the power of three, but also the smell.) To top it all off, trying to hold gas in can cause significant bloating and discomfort in your stomach, says Dr. Bechtold. So do yourself a favor, and let it slide when you first feel it. It may be uncomfortable for a minute, but it’ll be a lot more awkward when the whole meeting comes to a pause from smelling your 3-hour buildup.

Pitt's Season Ticket Campaign



This is an interesting way to sell season tickets. Apparently, the school is using the firing of their AD Steve Peterson as a way to sell season tickets.
ESPN.com -- Steve Pederson deftly guided Pittsburgh through conference realignment from the crumbling Big East to the rebuilt ACC. The longtime athletic director could never find stability for the football program.

When Paul Chryst left for Wisconsin on Wednesday to send the Panthers into their fourth coaching search in four years, it cost Pederson his job.

The school parted ways with Pederson in what chancellor Patrick Gallagher called a mutual decision but one necessary for Pitt to move forward following the latest setback for a football program stuck in neutral. Pederson had nearly four years remaining on a contract that ran through 2018.

These maps have been making it's way around the internet, is there really any question who the fans hate? My question is, how are the Detroit Red Wings so hated in the West? There's no question who the fans in Canada hate.

Sharks sign Road Cone John Scott



Western Conference team beware, especially if you're one of those players that skates with their head down. The San Jose Sharks have signed UFA road cone John Scott. The former Michigan Tech Husky inked a one year deal worth 750 thousand dollars.

One thing Scott will never be accused of is being dumb. Anyone that is this bad of a hockey players, and has been able to get paid this much money to play hockey in the best league in the world, has to be a genius.

Scott who has no redeeming quality other than he can fight, has played in 236 NHL games and scored a minuscule (2g-4a—6pts) and racked up an impressive 430 penalty minutes. In his second to last game of the season, Scott was assessed 24 minutes in penalties. Good thing that the Mr. Anger Management has a degree from MTU to fall back on when he's done with hockey.
SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed free agent forward John Scott to a one-year contract. Scott, 31, ranked 13th in the NHL with 125 penalty minutes in 56 games during the 2013-14 campaign, leading the Buffalo Sabres in that category."John brings a physical, no-nonsense element to our lineup," said Wilson. "As we integrate more younger players to our team, John's presence alone can act as a deterrent and help keep teams and opposing players honest."

Golf is a dangerous sport



Good morning, and happy Good Friday. I know this isn't funny, but I couldn't help myself. You have to be careful where you walk on a golf course.
