Dear Penn State, What an exciting few years it has been. It seems like just yesterday that I was standing in the Cedar Cliff High School gym announcing my commitment to Penn State University. Prior to writing this letter, I spent time reflecting on the past three years, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts with all of you. There have been many memories along the way. The amazing support I have received from the fan base at Penn State has had an everlasting impact on me and my family. The journey has been amazing and unforgettable. I will never forget the "rush" I felt when I committed to Coach O'Brien. I will never forget the tears I cried when the sanctions were announced on that summer day in 2012. I will never forget the look of pride in my parents' eyes when I told them I...

To Sky, The decision to move Arsenal’s match with Leicester is more than disappointing - it’s disgraceful. What’s most infuriating is that Sky had the opportunity to make this a television game before Christmas. Leicester were already in an elevated position then, and the allure of this fixture was already clear. There is no excuse for leaving it this late. Of course, there will be plenty of neutrals who are delighted they’ll now be able to watch the game from the comfort of their sofa. However, in making this switch you’ve inconvenienced many supporters who have already made specific plans and investments to attend o the original date — not least the Leicester fans, who will have made their own arrangements for travel. Foxes supporters have already announced they will be staging...

Dear Sir Alex Ferguson… sir, How are ya old whiskey nose? It’s been a while. I see you’re still farting around Old Trafford and, oddly enough, you seem to be looking younger by the day. Fair play to you. Now, before we begin, I’d just like to put everything out in the open so that we’re both on the same page. As a Manchester United supporter, there was a time when I looked up to you like a God. I’m not going to start listing your achievements or anything as I’m sure you still whisper them to yourself before you go to sleep at night but, you did a bang up job. Again, fair play. Having said all that however, Fergie me old flower, I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that, at this current moment in time, I’m starting to think that you’re a bit of an ar*e. Since you ‘retired’ from...

Dear Mr. Newton, I am a Seahawk fan, I bleed blue and green. Although I will be the first to tell you that today, we did not bring our A game, and were beat fair and square. There is one thing though, one thing that needs to be said. My news feed is filled with you Mr. Newton, and not in a good way. A video of you pulling a 12th flag down and throwing it to the ground like garbage. You see the one that people don’t realize is, Seahawk fans aren’t just fans. The 12th man is a community, a family, that regardless of winning stand behind our team and our community. So you see Cam, disrespecting the 12th man flag isn’t just disrespecting our team, it is disrespecting the fans that back our team. A community that feeds and clothes the homeless, a community that raises funds for families...

It’s time that you grow up and stop. You have no idea how ignorant and foolish you look trying to distort one of the greatest dynasties in NFL history. I understand that you may be upset, as some of you have the right to be. Some people find it boring that a team makes it to 6 Super Bowls in 15 years, or wins 13 divisional titles, or appear in 9 conference championship games. The saying always goes, “haters gonna hate”. Some of your current reasoning’s for the success of the Patriots team has hit an all-time low. Such as last year in the AFC championship game with deflatgate, to spy-gate in 2007, then in 2013 Arron Hernandez being arrested with the death of Odin Lloyd. It seems to me that I find it important to break some truth to you all. It’s time that you haters realize that no...

Below is a simple to use format to write to opposing teams after your team gets beat. Can be used in any sport in any city. Feel free to use and ad lib as you feel necessary. This can apply to any US City. Dear {Opposing Team Players Name}, I am a {team that lost} fan, I bleed {their team colors}. Although I will be the first to tell you that on {day after loss}, we {BS excuse for losing}, so {you got lucky otherwise we would have won statement}. My {social media addiction site} keeps showing you, but not in a good way. It is a video of you {doing something to a meaningless team “icon”}. You see the one thing that people don’t realize is, {insert any team name} fans aren’t just fans. The {team icon} symbolizes {blah blah family community charity like thing that every other city and...

Dear Danica Patrick, How are you? Me? I’m good. Dealing with a sinus infection, but I’ll be fine. Here’s the deal. I like you. Not in a romantic way, but I’m a fan of car racing. Always have been. Huge fan, actually. I go to two NASCAR races a year and have followed auto racing all my life (I’m 33). I’m writing to let you know I’m not happy with a few choices you have made. Now, I understand the sport and how sponsorships work, but your GoDaddy commercials are borderline porn, and I want to help you out. You are an extremely talented race car driver. I have watched you race over the past several years and have enjoyed watching you succeed. Hell, I even got a tear in my eye when you won your first race in Japan. My problem with your commercials is that you could have set the...

Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi is the best player in history and was always different, his former team-mate has written Former Barcelona captain Xavi has paid a warm tribute to Lionel Messi, who he believes is the finest footballer of all time. Messi scooped the fifth Ballon d'Or of his stellar career in Zurich on Monday, taking back the game's most coveted individual prize from his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo. Xavi played alongside Messi from the Argentina star's introduction into the Camp Nou first-team squad until the midfielder brought down the curtain on his own celebrated Barcelona career at the end of last season. Writing an editorial for Spanish newspaper El Pais, Xavi remembered being transfixed by the sublime talents of a teenage Messi on the training...

For 50 years plus I have been a loyal, proud and dedicated supporter of The Lions. Claret and blue through and through, and totally true, no matter what. Like so many fellow followers I have experienced all the highs and lows of our once great club during this period. I am fortunate enough to actually remember the times when Villa Park was a fortress, no one team enjoyed playing us at home, we were formidable – yes, honestly, every visiting club knew they were in for a game irrespective of our current form or league position. How times have changed. The Villa’s current situation is without doubt, for me at least, lower than low, it’s through the floor and getting worse by the day, we are well and truly sunk. Having followed the lads into the third tier of football in the past, I can...

Dear Slightly Mad Studios, It’s that time of year where we look back, reflect and try to share good will all around. On reflection and specifically in regards to Project Cars, I’ve enjoyed a roller-coaster of emotions and very much a love/hate relationship with the game on the Xbox One. For the most part, I’ve loved it, I really have. That other car racing game (for whom we shall not mention), even with fewer bugs and issues than pCars, sucks in comparison and this comes from someone who has bought and played all the games in that series. Ian, you and your team have given me many hours of enjoyment and have actually made me care and garner some affinity with all the different types of car on offer to drive… which is ironic, because it’s what that other game has been trying to do for...
