T.O. in Big D: Terrell Owens has reached an agreement in principle to join the Dallas Cowboys. The signing comes six years after he showed contempt for the franchise by spiking two touchdowns on the star at the midfield of Texas Stadium, the second of which resulted in George Teague drawing the most beloved unsportsmanlike conduct foul in Cowboys history.

ESPN.com reports Paul Konerko not signing with the Boston Red Sox: I mean, Konerko signing with the Chicago White Sox for $60 million over 5 years. And so the market grows thinner.

Favre angry that NFL turns its back on Robinson

The action of drinking alcohol is a choice. However, nobody chooses to be an alcoholic. Alcoholism is the choice made to drink, over and over. It is not a disease. It is a sequence of choices made by an individual.

Steelers: Big Ben Injured In Motorcycle Accident

It doesn't really sound like he'll be OK: From The Pittsburgh Channel: "According to a police source, Roethlisberger suffered a broken jaw, broke his left sinus cavity, suffered a 9-inch laceration to the back of his head, lost many teeth and has severe injuries to his knees from hitting the pavement. A plastic surgeon has been called in, the source said." What a vastly and impressively stupid young man.

Should we talk about the weather?

Eh. Kind of cool but correlate their temps with the general temps in the home town.

Houston, we have a soccer team!

That's really cool. I wish all MLS teams would have a similar recpetion, and I wish Seattle would get a MLS team.

Someone totally changed the wording of my drunken alarmist post. WTF. Was it Drew Rosenhaus?

Vince Young Fumbles an Opportunity

It's only reporters and fans that talk about the importance of humility. It's such crap. It's pretty clear to me that being a cocky asshole can really help someone's athletic career. Of course it goes both ways but anyone who says that being arrogantly sure of yourself is never a helpful thing is pretty much lying.

Ascending Colon

Bah. There's no way a closer should ever win the Cy Young award. Not that there is any real Cy Young candidate in the AL this year, but still, at least it went to a starter.

Move Over Dan Snyder

I laughed when I read this. And then I felt badly, because suicide is not funny. But then I laughed a little bit again.
