On the one hand, good on NFL.com for announcing the results of a poll that they did not agree with. They could have just as easily just picked a more deserving play, said it got more votes, and dealt with the consequences (people being inconsolably furious for a few minutes, then getting distracted by something else on the internet).
But the truth is, nothing can soil this victory for DeSean Jackson and Philadelphia; not most people disagreeing with it, not the organizers of the vote openly admitting it was a sham, nothing.
Well, I bet the Eagles could.
WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT'S INSIDE

One institution that doesn't really seem in need of a cataclysmic shake-up is the National Spelling Bee.
Until now. The Scripps National Spelling Bee is tired of all those slackers getting through and will now require its 16-year-old and under participants to know the definition of the word they are spelling for 50% of their score.
And as we all know, it is ever eighth grader's dream to double the amount of time they spend learning the proper spelling and definitions of hundreds of eight-syllable words.
DIFFERENT HAIR AWAITS US IN THE FUTURE
The trailer for Elysium has debuted, and we got our first look at Matt Damon in the year 2159. He’s bald, sick, and under frequent attack by androids, but it’s okay, because he’s got a robot spinal system drilled into his head and back.
That should make blowing up Jodie Foster a little easier, who stars as a wealthy, upper class haircut and inventor of a new kind of tanning bed that also cures cancer.
