Upon further review

According to one analytical breakdown, NFL officials are averaging 4.3 mistakes per game this season.

To their credit, though, the undeterred zebras are still going for it on fourth-and-wrong.

King Who?

“Half of NBA fans are talking about Steph Curry’s unbeaten Warriors, and the other half are talking about Kobe Bryant announcing his retirement,” noted Greg Cote of the Miami Herald. “Meanwhile, the Heat on Saturday hosted the Cavaliers and ol’ what’s-his-name.”

Caught looking?

The Orioles reportedly pulled their $150 million offer to slugger Chris Davis off the table.

Apparently Davis wasn’t expecting see a curveball till February.

Slim and None Dept.

So, which number will be lower by Dec. 25: The Philadelphia 76ers’ winning percentage, or the odds of an NFL ref getting a Christmas card from the Detroit Lions?

Horsing around

Orioles owner Peter Angelos has a racehorse named Showalter, and the steed even won his first race.

Coincidence?

George Steinbrenner once named his horses after managers, too — but just the rear end.
