Always locally sourced, always fresh. Taking you around the world in 80 words or less…

… Former Lions great Alex Karras passed away this morning. The undersized defensive end was a terror on the field and a hilarious personality off it, starring as Mongo in Mel Brooks’ classic film, Blazing Saddles and the hit ’80s sitcom Webster

… The Tigers lost last night 2-0 in Oakland, bringing the series to 2-1 in favor of Detroit. In Cincinnati, the Giants avoided the sweep in extra innings on a wonderful assist courtesy of Scott Rolen…

… Pete Rose isn’t helping his image…

… Woody Johnson has vowed to keep Tim Tebow in a Jets uniform for the next “three years,” for whatever that’s worth…

… Roger Goodell pulled a Gandolf (“You shall not pass!”) on the appealed suspensions, overturned them, then reinstated ‘less harsh’ penalties for some of those involved in Bountygate, while upholding others. Scott Fujita is pissed. Just another day in the Life of Goodell…
