Call it the “Rise of the e-Athlete.” Starting this Fall, Robert Morris University in Chicago will offer at least 30 athletic scholarships to High School students with exceptional skills in the video game League of Legends. The first university to offer such a bonus, Associate Athletic Director acknowledged the lack of traditional athletic prowess necessary for the scholarships: “Obviously it’s not cardiovascular in any way, but it’s mental.”

Ghana’s most famous witch doctor is claiming that he caused Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent knee injury, which might limit the Portuguese Forward in World Cup play. When asked to explain, Nana Kwaku Bonsam—translated literally as “Devil of Wednesday”—said “I know what Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury is about, I’m working on him, I am very serious about it. Last week, I went around looking for four dogs and I got them to be used in manufacturing a special spirit called Kahwiri Kapam.” Dead dogs or not, with the US in the same group as Germany, Portugal and Ghana (who they lost to back in 2010), any black magic from anywhere will do for an American win.
