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 epic arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - It's hard to tell which is the bigger travesty - the Alex Rodriguez debacle or the subjective selection process for the U.S. Olympic figure skating team.

The games in Sochi are less than a month away, and the ice princesses are already clawing for the crown.

At least no one has been seen around the rink carrying a lead pipe. Yet.

Meanwhile, Alex Rodriguez is promising to cry all the way to federal court and tattle on the big, bad boys that Major League Baseball used to lay the hurt on him.

While he's doing that, the Baseball Hall of Fame looks even more like a place to dump idealistic garbage.

There's at least one good thing in sports to look forward to - we are virtually guaranteed to get a Super Bowl matchup almost everyone will love.

That means higher ratings and more money for the suits that rule the game. Everyone's happy.
