A college student sells his autograph, the NCAA sells out it's college students and 1-2-3-4 I declare a Twitter war. That means it's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, brothers who have covered sports for ESPN and the L.A. Times.   

Texas A & M quarterback Johnny Manziel made history last season as the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. Since then, we've gotten to know him as young man with a, well, zest for life, so to speak. The NCAA will likely have something to say about this because, remember, these are students, not pro athletes that can be cashed in on.

Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper returned to practice with the team after a few days in sensitivity training.

The NBA schedule is out and Brian, I understand there are some very juicy, drama packed match-ups lined up for both the Lakers and Clippers?
