2. Josh Gordon: The NFL's leading receiver in 2013 is off his suspension and plans to "tear this league up." Just as long as you celebrate with soda pop afterward, pal.

Hang in there, Buffalo

Cam Newton's Twitter account was hacked on Tuesday. It led to some pretty decent fraudulent burns, including "@Rsherman_25 overrated", "i wanna get released" and "i wanna get signed to a good team (sad face)".

Tweet of the week
Showing a sense of humor, Sanders spent the rest of the week proving how very alive he remains.

Troy & Buck drop the scruff hammer
Ben Tate does not believe that Cleveland rocks

Hero of the Week: Marshawn Lynch

I kind of liked The Notebook, too, especially when the two old farts croaked together in bed. I'm a sucker for dunderheaded symbolism.
ANYWAY, I asked Twitter followers for their choice for the Chick Flick You're Secretly In On (CFYSIO). Here are some of your answers, with my comments in parentheses.
(Stay on topic.)
(Keepin' it real. Respect.)
(The Jennifer Lawrence Effect at play.)
(Hashtag felt like an unnecessary shot.)
(Noticing a trend here?)
Not a soul. Until next time ...
