It's nice to come back from a few days off with one of the most ridiculous stories you'll ever read. Former South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia, who is now on the roster for the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL, reportedly injured two fingers while giving a peace sign.

UPDATE: Disregard this entire story. It is fake.

I got into a little Twitter brouhaha Tuesday night when I criticized ESPN's Chris Broussard for pulling a classic ESPN stunt and trying to make people believe someone from his network broke a story that had already been broken when Deron Williams tweeted that he had re-signed with the Nets. For a full recap of Broussard's antics, I strongly suggest you read this and this.

Brian Feinberg, of Lafayette, Calif., says, "Can you throw a poll out to end a feud between me and my good/former friend Kevin? A group of guys from the office decided to play hooky, so I bought a dozen tickets for the Giants vs. Dodgers. Then Kevin dropped out the day before, but never bothered to tell me. When I found this out secondhand, I listed his ticket for real cheap on Craigslist and gave out Kevin's cell number. His phone blew up and he went nuts. Who's in the wrong?"
