Von Miller shuts down the notion that Johnny Manziel is his roommate with Instagram post

Broncos LB Von Miller ended the notion that Johnny Manziel was his roommate with a very well-done Instagram photo.

The Dancing With The Stars contestant posted a photoshopped image of him and Manziel as Will Ferrell and John C. Riley from the movie Stepbrothers.  He called the public hilarious and said that Johnny is not staying with him, but Manziel is his brother and Miller has his back.

Lol, you guys are HILARIOUS!!! Haha, I love it. I got his back no matter what! #LOVE #gigem @jmanziel2

The two played at Texas A&M together and Miller has reportedly said that he wants the embattled free-agent on the Broncos. There is currently a report that Manziel is staying with suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon.

One bummer: There is probably a lot of room for activities at Von Miller’s house.

The 49ers are making players do ladder drills up an insane man-made hill

Running sucks. Running hills suck more. But running ladder drills up a 35-foot man-made hill sounds like torture.

Correction: It is torture, the 49ers are making their players do it, and we can confirm:

“The Hill,” which is 60 feet long and has a 30-degree incline, was installed by strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright and looks every bit as painful as it sounds. Earlier this week, the 49ers made players who did not participate in team drills run the ladder on the ramp.

This hill is significantly larger than the hill that existed on the practice field in 2009 during Mike Singletary’s tenure as head coach, which looks like a small mound of grass compared to the Leaning Tower of Pisa on the right:

There’s no doubt the reviews for Shanahan Hill won’t be positive, but nevertheless, owner Jed York took a turn up the monster. And if the boss is doing it, you better not complain.

O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing draws ‘hundreds of letters’ regarding case

Leave a comment

O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing in Nevada on Thursday drew nationwide attention, and the Board of Parole Commissioners demonstrated that by showing the “hundreds of letters of support and opposition” for Simpson.

The commissioner noted that a majority of the opposition letters asked the board to consider Simpson’s 1995 acquittal in the murder case of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman and the subsequent civil case that ordered Simpson to pay $25 million to the victims’ families. But the letters were not considered in the case, in which the board paroled the former football star after he was sentenced to nine years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping in 2007 when he attempted to retrieve memorabilia that he claimed belonged to him.

The commissioner displayed what appeared to be five stacks of letters and said that the board “always encourages public opinion.” The parole hearing received widespread public attention, broadcast live nationally and drawing hundreds of reporters.

Simpson could be released as early as October.
