Vick back at home

Michael Vick left prison early this morning to make his way home in Virginia to serve two months of home confinement ending July 20th. As I'm sure most of you are aware, Vick has been serving a prison term for dog fighting. Vick apparently wants to work with the Humane Society now to show his remorse and most likely, restore his public image. NFL Commissioner Goodell suspended Vick indefinitely so I guess we'll have to wait and see if he really believes that Vick is ready to come back and play. Although, I expect to see him back in somebody's lineup eventually.

Gruden to replace Kornheiser on MNF

Former Bucs coach Jon Gruden is going to test his chops as a commentator for Monday Night Football on ESPN. Gruden will be replacing Tony Kornheiser who has decided to leave after three years. For ESPN's sake, I hope Gruden can watch his potty mouth that we're so used to lip reading on the sidelines.

Dancing with the Dolphins

Jason Taylor is back with the Miami Dolphins for a year worth $1.5 million. The former Dancing with the Stars star (that's right I said Dancing with the Stars star, not football star) played (when he wasn't injured, which was never) last season with the Washington Redskins, but was released in March. After spending 11 seasons in Miami, it only makes sense for him to return and stay/retire there.

Dear Mr. Favre

Dear Brett:

It has come to my attention that you are contemplating (yet again) a return to the NFL. I regret to inform you that unfortunately, I have had enough and frankly there is no room in my NFL fandom for you to return. I have come up with possible reasons for your return:

  1. You want to further increase your chances of keeping your Most INTs record by throwing at least another 30 this season.
  2. You heard the Vikes are interested and have gone senile enough to think that purple would look good on you.
  3. You're hoping to go to a Florida team since that's where most people go to retire anyways.
Well here's a thought Brett, just move to Punta Gorda and do what everyone else who has hit freedom 55 does, golf, knit, do crosswords, sail, basically anything but play football. If Punta Gorda isn't good enough for you, you can check this link out.

Good luck in your retirement.



P.S. The hat suits you.

Disaster at Cowboys practice facility

A dozen people were injured in Irving, Texas on Saturday when the Cowboys' practice facility collapsed from strong winds. The accident left 33-year-old Rich Behm, a scouting assistant, paralyzed from the waist down. Two other Cowboys staff members were hospitalized with fractures as well.
