Question of the Day
If so, then Lynch is going to be almost impossible to beat this year in the Yards After Contact category.
So I’m reading about the Patriots’ Nick Kaczur wearing a wire to help nail a purported drug dealer, and I’m thinking: Now something I never saw coming. I mean, after Spygate and now this, how much longer will it be before the words “Pats” and “night vision goggles” appear in the same story?
In case Sen. Arlen Specter is looking for something else to investigate:
The death of Dwight White, erstwhile member of the “Steel Curtain,” brings to 17 the number of former Steelers who have died since 2000 at the age of 59 or younger.
Chuck Klosterman in Esquire, on Michael Vick, Rae Carruth and other footballers in prison:
“If we selected the 44 best football players in the U.S. penal system, how much [butt] would they kick? Right now, 2.3 million people are incarcerated. This is a social travesty. But - hypothetically - if we were to draft and train the best talent from that pool, I bet they could win the SEC or the Pac-10. They could maybe beat the Dolphins in an exhibition. … These dudes would make the ‘77 Raiders look like Tibetan monks.”
In other football news, the NFL has issued the Cowboys’ Pacman Jones a partial reinstatement.
Partial reinstatement - what exactly does that mean? That he can play cornerback, but he can’t return kicks?
Jones will be fully reinstated, the league says, if he remains on perfect behavior between now and Sept. 1. “Perfect behavior,” in this instance, consists of staying out of further legal trouble, conducting himself appropriately on the field and not carrying anything smaller than a $5 bill.
