A few days ago South Carolina defensive stud Jadeveon Clowney made one of the most mind-shatteringly awesome defensive plays of the season when he steamrolled Michigan back Vincent Smith in the Outback Bowl.
Someone on the internet then made a mischievous change to Clowney’s Wikipedia page, and @RickMuscles spotted it. Under the 2012 section, it temporarily read: “In the Outback Bowl, Clowney obliterated the entire state of Michigan when he hit Wolverines’ running back Vincent Smith and forced a fumble. There are now only 49 states in the United States and Roger Goodell has suspended Clowney for the first game of his NFL career.”
6. Roger Goodell actually responded to the Wikipedia claim*.
*Roger Goodell did not actually say this. As far as we know, Michigan still exists, as well.
