Bigger Romantic: Shane Victorino or Jordan Crawford?

Bigger Romantic: Shane Victorino or Jordan Crawford?

It's Valentine's Day. That means the same for professional athletes as it does the rest of the general population. Some dudes are loving and romantic while some are ... not so much.

Let's compare Shane Victorino's Valentine's tweet with a quote from Washington Wizards scorer Jordan Crawford.

Solid work, Shane. You probably made Ms. Flyin' Hawaiian's day. Perhaps she'll prepare you a lovely Spam-filled dinner later.

Now here's what Crawford had to say about V-day.

Least Romantic Wizard goes to Jordan Crawford with this gem.

“I’m the wrong person to talk to about Valentine’s Day,” he said laughing. “I usually get rid of my shorties around now.”

But he does probably save a few bucks on chocolates and roses.

Penn State stays at No. 2 in latest AP poll after impressive win over Michigan

Penn State looked like a bona fide National Championship contender in its blowout win over Michigan on Saturday (see story)

That said, the Nittany Lions remained one spot behind unanimous No. 1 Alabama, who beat Tennessee Saturday, at No. 2. In fact, the top eight teams remain the same from last week's poll, meaning that No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 TCU and No. 5 Wisconsin round out the top five.

With their statement win over the Wolverines, the Nittany Lions knocked Michigan, previously No. 19, entirely out of the Top 25.

Penn State faces its highest ranked opponent of the season on Saturday, when the Nittany Lions travel to Columbus, Ohio, to play No. 6 Ohio State.
