NFL Won't Let Ochocinco Wear Henry's No. 15 Jersey

If OchoCinco wants to pay tribute to his friend and teamate whats the problem? When Payton wanted to wear High Top Cleats to honor Johnny Unitas the League pulled the same BS. Football is still a game Lighten Up this League takes themselves way to Seriously. This issue as a foolish as Congress "investigating the BCS" How about jobs for all the recent college grads Thats an issue, paying your respects is not nor should it be an issue. Chad wear the number or better yet let Carson Palmer wear it.

Equestrian sport too deadly?

Eventing evolved directly from calvary exercises and is not for the faint of heart in fact the number of horses put down during and after events exceeds the number of riders( having witnessed a Soviet horse take one for the Sickle & Hammer on course in Montreal in 1976) it is NOT a sport for 16 year olds girls from Scripps Ranch or Greenwich Ct. although Princess Anne of the British Royal Family was a world class rider in the 70's (to bad Charlie's the oldest) Horse show mothers are the worst type of stage mother period.

Schilling Calls Out The Rocket

Of course Schilling has to weigh in on this matter though it is none of his business he wants to exploit his position among the so called "Red Sox Nation" ie those fans that didn't know the team existed until they started to win, when he runs for Congress. He is just grandstanding because he has NO meaningfull positions on any real issues,typical politician. "Je Accuse" Look it up Curt then Shut up
