Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - If you're a Burger King franchise owner in the Florida panhandle, you might want to guard your soda fountain from a certain person who plays quarterback for Florida State.

In other news:

An 11-year-old qualified for the U.S. Women's Open, and George has a serious question - who is going to hold her juice box while she's hitting?

The World Cup begins soon. We find it hard to care about this, but we try.

No one loves Jeff Samardzija - especially not the Cubs, the team he plays for.
