Receiver Randy Moss was not kidding about wanting to come back to the NFL. He has been working out with the New Orleans Saints. There is no official word on what kind of shape Moss is actually in. The last time Moss played was 2010 where he bouncing from team to team until landing at Tennessee. Who knows the Saints may need a new receiver since Marques Colston and Robert Meachem are free-agents. I am always down for a good comeback story.
As I predicted yesterday UConn (9th) managed to beat West Virginia (8th) in over time today, 71-67. The big stars for the Huskies were Shabazz Napier with 26 points and Jeremy Lamb with 22 points. Although Mountaineers helped out by missing 11 shots in over time. This means UConn will go on to face number 1 seeded Syracuse tomorrow.
I wouldn’t want to miss this game for the world. Although I think it is unlikely that UConn is going to beat Syracuse . . . stranger things have happened.
We all remember on the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when Adrienne Maloof goes to somewhat scarey Sacramento King’s game despite Paul trying to convince her not too. The fans were not happy with the Maloof family for the possible movement of the Kings to Anaheim. Sacramento has been a troubled almost on verge of bankruptcy for some time now so you can see why the Maloof’s felt it might be time for a change. Now thanks to Sacramento Mayor and former NBA All-Star Kevin Johnson the Kings will stay put. The city has found a way to contribute $255.5 million to the project through parking decks. They will begin construction on a stadium in downtown that should be open by the 2015-2016 season. Let’s just hope the stadium generates enough revenue to save Sacramento.
Okay so I will probably always be a Lakers fan but still I don’t want Pau Gasol go (partly because I love saying his first name I highly recommend listening to this link of his name pronounced correctly http://www.forvo.com/word/pau_gasol/).
After Kobe Bryant demanded that Gasol be given a straight answer on whether or not he would be getting the boot, a conversation has happened. In the vaguest trading conversation ever Gasol was told to keep up the good work. Some Gasol feels better because he thinks he
might maybe knows where he stands. Regardless we will all find out on March 15th.
In the strangest office pool ever the Saints have admitted to putting in up to $50,000 in for assaulting other players. If you knocked out a player and they were unable to return to the game you’d get $1,500. If you got a player carted off you’d get $1,000. Don’t the Saints know your salary is the ultimate award, they are going to pay you for knocking people out anyways and way more than $1,000. Not to say that teams encourages assaulting players but it is usually part of a good defense. At Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis took responsibility for the program. It is so annoying when coaches
lie pretend not to know what their players are up to.
I would like to see a bounty in hockey, would anybody even notice it was happening?
It has finally happened the Colts, like any middle aged man, have traded in their older model QB Peyton Manning for a new hot thing Stanford’s Andrew Luck. Manning is $28 million
richer poorer and a free-agent. The question is still how good is Manning post surgery? Will he recover enough to make a difference to another team? It obvious that Irsay didn’t think he could make a comeback. For all the older divorced women out there who lost their husbands to 20 somethings I hope that Manning comes back. Regardless it will definitely be a rebuilding year for the Colts.
