"...the NFL seems like the least likely of all sports to have the first openly gay player. Still, the conversation seems to be being had more openly in the league than it has been in any other."
"What Whitlock proposes is change for the sake of change. His grandiose proclamation is bunk and he knows it. It’s another example of Whitlock writing to a headline in order to attract readers. His proposal is unrealistic and synthetic."
As most pundits suspected, reports that Tom Brady had cut the New England Patriots a break in negotiating his current contract extension were bunk. Brady did no such thing. His three-year, $27M deal kicks off with a massive $30M payment up front, according to Pro Football Talk. So much for less money.
That makes a whole lot more sense than the idea that the golden boy would take an enormous pay cut for the benefit of his team. Still, yesterday’s errant reports that Brady had done so had some Denver Broncos fans suggesting that Peyton Manning should volunteer to have his own contract restructured to make more room for Denver under the salary cap. Elway did it, after all. Shouldn’t Manning want to help the Broncos win by whatever means necessary? Uh, no.
Peyton Manning isn’t a life-long Denver Bronco in the same way that John Elway was. He is here to get paid. Nothing that isn’t in Peyton Manning’s own best interest financially should even cross his mind. Despite speculation to the contrary, it didn’t cross Tom Brady’s mind to do a “solid” for the Pats, either. He will get his. In fact, more of Brady’s deal is guaranteed than before.
Call this egg on the faces of the Sports radio callers who were calling Peyton Manning out yesterday for not being as generous as Brady.
"...by allowing its columnists to work in radio, the Post was expanding its reach. By bringing snippets of radio back to its own pages the Post has taken an additional step toward integrating a diverse range of mediums into its online product"
That, ladies and gents was the most fun victory of the year for your Denver Nuggets.
With Gallo sidelined with a deep bruise, Wilson Chandler was aces for the Blue and Yellow and Kenneth Faried put on a show, highlighted by the posterization of Dwight Howard that you see here.
Denver dominated. 119-108.
Tonight the Nuggets dealt a blow to the Lakers chances of following through on Kobe’s pledge to take them to the playoffs and showed a fun new look on the Pepsi Center floor.
Tonight’s win was indeed exciting and should be cause for optimism, whether Masia thinks so or not.
Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant (no, not THAT Dez Bryant) was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of "criminal mischief", whatever that means. He apparently showed up drunk at a neighbor's house and made a racket.
An Oakland player getting arrested is really a non-story. This booking shot, however, is worth talking about. Isn't this what we all visualize when we think of a Raider?
"Kobe Bryant’s fire is precisely what the Nuggets lack. The Lakers have every excuse to throw the towel in on their 2013 campaign and admit that they are not contenders. That idea never seems to enter their minds, though."
Welcome to the Shitty Cars of Englewood #13
Within only blocks of the concrete bunker we find some of the junkiest jalopies in all of Colorado. It's not like us to keep this bounty to ourselves. Oh, no. We want to share it with you, our loyal readers.
Today we have the privilege of examining the residential junkyard.
"What difference does it make if the Nuggets enter the post-season as the fourth seed, the sixth or the eighth if they’re not playing to win it all? Why bother even making the playoffs"
"Apprehensive as we were, we dug right in. We peeled back the foil lid from the tarter sauce, popped open the origami cardboard box containing our golden treasures and got busy munching."
