RJ’s Groaner of the Week 
Bulgaria agreed to spare Penka the cow after plans to kill her for crossing European borders without paperwork sparked a global outcry. That's throwing oneself on the mercy of udders.
The Indians say whatever replaces Chief Wahoo on Cleveland jerseys will honour their tradition. No championship in 70 years; I'm thinking a Chernobyl or Three Mile Island crest.

Happy 64th birthday to Montreal Expos Hall-of-Famer Andre Dawson. It’s a shame Dawson didn't get to play for San Francisco — Andre the Giant has a ring to it.

A Chinese sow-breeding firm is erecting a high-rise "swine hotel" 13 floors tall — as close as it gets to pigs flying. In related news, oddsmakers favour the Browns to win the Super Bowl.

Hot NBA topics on ESPN the other night: a clip of LeBron James working out and Carmelo Anthony likely joining the Rockets. James was doing power squats; Anthony, historically, has done diddly-squat.

Glass half full: Mark Reynolds of the Nationals recently had 10 RBIs in one game. Glass half empty: that almost equalled his RBIs from the previous 35 games.

Serena Williams made her 10th final at Wimbledon — in just her fourth tournament since giving birth. Face it, the woman knows how to deliver.

What's the difference between a paraskevidekatriaphobe and an ortographobe? The former fears Friday the 13th; the latter fears having to spell the former.

Korea’s soccer association won’t press charges against fans who threw eggs at the World Cup team. Not making it out of the first round left enough egg on their faces.
The Tampa Bay Times printed a list of “investigations, suspensions and allegations” involving Jameis Winston — a total of nine. If stupid was ice, Winston would be Antarctica.

The U.S. beat Belgium in the World Cup — of Quidditch. If ever there was a sport for the Washington Wizards.
So far, Cavaliers Game 1 goat JR Smith hasn’t gone into witness protection. And if he did, what would his last name be?

I really like the name Gabine Muguruza, No. 3 in the WTA rankings. Muguruza. Offhand I can’t think of an English word with three straight vowels being U’s, but it’s probably unusual.
Russian women in bridal gowns squared off in a friendly soccer match in the World Cup city of Kazan, playing for 30 minutes. Which is five minutes more than my first marriage lasted.

The NBA season is long over, and it’s still LeBron; LeBron; LeBron; LeBron; LeBron. I see a perfect marketing opportunity for Kellogg's — All-Bron.
God's truth, I've just watched 11 minutes of TSN without any mention of John Tavares. So I must — oops; they didn't make it to 12 minutes.

The Washington Nationals overcame a 9-0 deficit, taking the lead 10-9 on Trea Turner's 6th-inning Grand Slam — the ESPN Turner Point.

I just was watching Terminator 2 where the T-1000 becomes so brittle that with each movement, part of his body breaks. Anyone else just think of Milos Raonic?
