This has to be the most in-depth analysis of J.R.R. Tolkien mythology in a sports article ever. Of course, it's always nice to see jocks' eyes opened to the intricacies of hobbit and dwarf lore. Maybe now they'll think twice before acting like total Uruk-hai towards us nerds. (Via BuzzFeed)

Update (5/16/11): Fact-checkers have really got to be more on the ball when verifying nerd-speak. It's one thing for an article to mix up comic book superheroes, but the one below mixed up a superhero from the Marvel universe with one from DC. We expect the managing editor to resign in shame by day's end. (Thanks Sarah V!)
