wrigley-field-football.jpgWell, this just looks dangerous.

Saturday's clash between Northwestern and Illinois at Wrigley Field should be entertaining for a variety of reasons, and the end zone of death is just one of them.

Here is the east end zone, located in a Tyler Colvin-less right field. Look closely at the back line. It practically runs into the brick wall, which is thankfully padded.

Still, it's hard to imagine any fades, posts or flys being run at full speed down in the red zone while going that way.
Keeping up with the Odom
Los Angeles Laker and Khloe Kardashian enthusiast Lamar Odom is suing his ex-girlfriend, Liza Morales for access to his children.

Odom, 31, sought to set up a visitation schedule and "reasonable child support" in court Nov. 5. He and Morales have a 12-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son together.

The Manhattan mother expressed shock to the New York Post about the move, saying that the left-hander essentially "checked out" as a father years ago.

The suit comes as Odom and Kardashian prepare to star in their own reality show following their quest to conceive.

If that's not must-see television, then I'm not sure what qualifies.

Neat goal for Messi



Lionel Messi, the best player in the world, continues to do things other simply can't.

Easiest call ever



Auburn's Nick Fairley played to the whistle and beyond -- well beyond -- in Saturday's big victory over Georgia.

A real Hail Mary
They played a high school football game and an episode of "Grey's Anatomy" broke out.

And finally ...
Ever wonder if you're legally obligated to yell, "fore" when you hit an errant golf shot toward an unsuspecting person? A New York court is trying to figure that out right now.
