Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning announced on Tuesday morning that he will be suing the Guyer Clinic from which he allegedly received performance enhancing drugs.
A bombshell of a story broke on Saturday in which it was reported by the news organization Al Jazeera that Manning had used human growth hormone to recover from a neck injury in 2011.
Manning vehemently denied the story saying “It’s completely fabricated. Complete trash, complete garbage,” Manning said. “There’s some more adjectives I’d like to be able to use. It makes me sick. Makes me sick that it brings Ashley [his wife] into it, her medical history, her medical privacy being violated. I don’t understand that.”
On Tuesday many expected a statement from Manning that he would be pursuing a defamation lawsuit against Al Jazeera or possibly one of the sources listed by the news group.
But as he has done so many times in his career Manning got to the line and called an audible.
Manning is now suing the Guyer Clinic for a package that he received in 2011 stating that the whole thing reeked of oregano.
“Look, the package was for my wife, not for me. But I am pretty sure that the parcel that she ordered was not the medical supplies that we wanted. And neither my wife nor I is a sucker. We will not stand for that sort of medical fraud.”
Manning went on. “I think that it’s pretty obvious that I don’t need any type of human growth hormone. I mean, look at me I’m an Adonis. But this medical treatment was for my wife and she has been cheated and manipulated. I have to go now, my foot just fell off.”
Rod Morris is a 42 year old football fan who just loves “his” Carolina Panthers.
Morris, a native of Dallas Texas, was spotted repeatedly wearing tons of Cowboys merchandise just one season ago.
“I don’t mind the Cowboys. They’re my hometown team.” said Morris on Wednesday. “But I’ve always really loved the Carolina Panthers. They’ve just always been my favorite team. I really like their colors and the way that they play so hard every week.”
When asked who his favorite Panthers player was Morris responded. “Oh it is definitely Cam Newton. He is awesome. He is so long and athletic, he’s just a terrific player that finds ways to make the big plays.”
Morris was unable to name a second player.
“I don’t like memorize every player on the team like some losers. But the Panthers are my team and they always have been.” Morris confirmed. “I have been cheering for Carolina since I was a baby. That’s just how I am. I’m loyal like that to my team.”
“I’m that way with every team. I just stick with them no matter what. Yankees, Alabama for football, the Cleveland Cavaliers. I mean those are my squads. It is ride or die for my squads. I guess that’s just how I was raised.”

Oakland Raiders outside linebacker Khalil Mack has petitioned the NFL to allow him to face the Denver Broncos every week of the season next year.
On Sunday in the Raiders’ 15-12 win over the Broncos Mack finished with seven tackles, five sacks, and seven quarterbacks hits, as the Broncos failed to account for him the entire game.
NFL Players Association attorney Jeffrey Kessler, the man who led the fight to overturn New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s suspension, said that he is confident that Roger Goodell will hear Mack’s plea and render a fair decision.
“We looked at the film of Sunday’s game and it is pretty apparent that Khalil would benefit greatly from facing the Broncos each week. And my client deserves those benefits.” Kessler stated.
“I mean, it was almost like they weren’t even trying to block him. They just kept letting Khalil hit their quarterback again, and again, and again. This is a rare case where my client has a chance to be considered among the all-time great players to ever play the game. But only if he gets to face this team each week that is apparently completely incapabale of making any adjustments.” he continued.
Mack also expressed surprise that Denver didn’t bring some extra players to try to limit his production.
“I kept thinking they would try to block me but maybe they didn’t want to hurt their offensive tackle’s feelings. It was like they were afraid to make a decision.” Mack said on Wednesday. “I guess it’s a good thing they don’t have any other important personnel decisions to make this year.”

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently 3-19 so you’ll have to forgive them if they are a bit short-tempered these days.
While the team is in a rebuilding mode with roster filled with young inexperienced players there is one veteran that is apparently rubbing many around the club the wrong way.
That would be 17 time All-Star and five time NBA Champion 37 year old Kobe Bryant.
“When I first came to LA, I thought it would be cool to be on the team with Kobe.” says shooting guard Nick Young. “But every single day it’s “well you know I scored 81 points once, right?” I mean that was what? In 2004 or something?”
Young isn’t alone in feeling that way.
Jordan Clarkson tells a similar story. “We are waiting in line to get on the bus to the arena and Kobe cuts in front of everyone. He says “maybe when you score 81 points in a game, then you can get on first.”
Forward Julius Randle has a unique story. He tells of a time that he was with a dinner date at a downtown Los Angeles steakhouse. “Me and this girl that I had been seeing for a few months, were out having dinner enjoying the conversation. Kobe showed up, ate my steak, finished my drink and took my girl home with him. When I asked him about it the next day at practice he was just like “Well, let me ask you something Julian. Have YOU ever scored 81 points in a single game?”
“I mean we know how great he used to be but it’s just getting old. He can’t even score eight points in a game these days. It takes him 81 shots to get 15 points now.”
