Hopefully you watched the Penguins stay alive against Detroit last night. There is nothing like an elimination game in hockey, and the level of intensity in that game showed why. If you didn't see it, at least give game six on Wednesday night a shot.
First Rich Rodriquez had an attorney who represents him embarassingly compare a coach's buyout clause to slavery. Now his agent has admitted to being a front man for one of those incredibly lame "handicapper" services that makes claims like "We've correctly picked every Monday Night Game since 1949!" Rich - pay West Virginia the money. You signed the contract, you owe them 4 million. This will not go away, and it is not helping you.
The Reggie Bush story continues to drag on, with there being new accusations of him trying to stonewall questions in his deposiation. Reggie - pay them the money and it will go away. Otherwise, unless you're Karl Rove, you don't get to refuse to answer questions just because you don't want to. The NCAA doesn't have subpeona power in the Bush case, but wants the information from these depositions. The state of California DOES have subpeona power, which is why the O.J. Mayo case got a lot more interesting over the weekend.
Somehow there's a controversy involving these Upper Deck cards of Obama and Clinton. My question continues to be, who wants a lame caricature of ANY politician as part of their baseball card buying experience? I can only imagine the joy some youngster will feel when he opens a still sealed 2008 pack in five years hoping for a Jay Bruce rookie card and gets a Mitt Romney instead. Did they find the guy who drew these on the Midway at the Alachua County Fair? They made Obama's teeth the size of Stonehenge.
RIP Bo Diddley. Aside from the great music, he gave us one of the great sports commercials as well.
