Thought #1 – Lebron owns the city of Cleveland, and Braylon Edwards, you are no longer welcome there. How fast was the turn around on this? What was it all of 24 hours after getting into it with one of the King’s friends that Edwards is shipped off to the Jets? That’s got to be some kind of a record. I guess its official though, Lebron is the one good thing that city has going for it sports wise and the heck if they are going to let a guy who dropped 39 balls last year mess that up. Now Lebron, what can you do about Mangini?

Thought #2 – The best part of that whole exchange, which I should have guessed it would be, was Rex Ryan’s interview. Rex stressed that Braylon would be able to relax and have a good time as a Jet and that would really help him out on the field. So wait, dude has slide in two years from one of the best receivers to a guy who could barely catch the swine flu if he was trapped in a suana with the Ole Miss football team, is currently under investigation for a bar fight, and your main concern is him relax and having a good time? I think if I was you, my main concern would be getting my hands on some of that gunk Orlando Jones had all over his hands in the Replacements not making sure Braylon knows how to relax, pretty sure he’s been doing a darn good job of that in Cleveland for a while now.

Thought #3 – When all else fails, M.C. Hammer will come and bail you out. This year’s biggest rookie hold out, Michael Crabtree, finally signed with the 49ers this morning thanks to a little help from a guy in some sweet golden parachute pants. Maybe he was finally able to make it clear to Crabtree that no play = no pay, and with the possibility of a hold out in the near future it could be quite some time for Mike got another chance at a pay check. Head Coach Mike Singletary said it was a “fair deal” for both sides, while Hammer simply said “you got to pray just to make it today.” I really hope Hammer showed up to that meeting with the giant golden “H” chain on and the sports coat with the giant shoulder pads in it. Nothing says you mean business like that.p1_sanders

Thought #4- Speaking of gold chains and former rap “stars,”  apparently hanging out with Deion Sanders isn’t as cool as it used to be. Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant has been ruled ineligible for this season after lying about going to Sanders home and working out with him. That’s embarrassing Prime Time. Dez basically just gave you a pity jog, then denied it. Yup, you’re officially that old guy at the rec, trying to slide in and lift with the young guys from local high school, mean while creeping all the high school girls out by being a little helpful in your demonstration of proper squat techniques. Granted, Dez shouldn’t have lied about spending time with you, but he was still in the running for homecoming court at that point, so I understand where he was coming from.

Thought #5 – Pod cast tomorrow hopefully. A look back, a look ahead, and we’ll pitch the suggestions from shoes. Will Karl’s L.A. Lights make a run? Or will it be Shawn Kemp’s Reebok? We shall see.

Thought #1 – ESPN is officially starting their “30 for 30” series tonight with a film on Wayne Gretzky’s exit from the Edmonton. Now granted outside of the month after each Mighty Ducks movie came out, I’ve never really paid attention to hockey. You remember those days, we all bought roller blades and plastic street pucks. You probably even bragged to your fprostarsriends that you could shoot a knuckle puck, and talked about dekeing (sp?)like you had a clue what the heck it meant. (Lord knows I did.) But the bottom line is that despite never watching a hockey game, we all loved Wayne, he was our token hockey star, and we ever hung up that mini poster we bought at the book fair to prove it. I can’t tell you many stats on the great, but I can tell you his most impressive feat to me, being a Pro Star. When he joined forces with Bo Jackson and Michael Jordan to fight crime, that was magic. Least we forget, he also had rocket powered roller blades. Awesome! He truly was the great one.

Thought #2- Is Bobby Bowden going to retire? I doubt it. I think he’s actually passed that “enjoy a nice retirement” age, where you leave your job, buy a boat, and start taking in the early bird T-Bone for half price. No, he passed that long ago and entered the “going work till you die one day on the job” age bracket. I mean if Bobby retires, what’s he going to do? Fish? Golf? Walk circles around the mall in matching FSU windsuits with his wife? Yeah, no way, not Bobby. Guys like him and Jo Pa, the day they walk away from coaching, they just keep on walking up towards Heaven. So FSU fan, you better just suck it up, cause I don’t think Bobby is ready for heaven just yet and you darn sure ain’t going to fire him.

Thought #3-The SEC has officially apologized for the excessive celebration penalties in the LSU-GA game on Saturday. I’ll be honest, until today I thought I was just missing the highlight of the penalty itself. I mean I kept watching and watching and I saw a guy jump, and I saw a guy hug another guy, and I really thought I was just catching the wrong clips. Am I wrong or didn’t we go through this same mess last year in the Pac 10? Why do we care if people celebrate anyway? So what, a guy scores and gets excited, maybe even pumps his fist or does a little dance, so what? I mean obviously we kind of like it, if it’s a good dance we’ll surly talk about on the ride home and then of course we will try to mimic it at Thanksgiving when we score on our 12 year old cousins.  It’s stupid to change a game over something like this, but thanks for the thought SEC. Thanks for the nice note and stuffed mini bulldog you sent. Season’s kinda screwed, but all better now.

Thoughts about last night:

Brett Farve is still Bret Farve, at least for the first part of the year. Let’s not forget he did this last year too. He had an amazing week 4 last year, 6 touchdowns in fact, but he’s body just couldn’t hang in there for the long run. At least Berrian is healthy again, the deep ball threat should be a help for Brett, although could it get the best of him? Hmm.

Rogers is a very good quarterback but it’s hard to play on your butt. Seriously Green Bay line, I know you’re banged up, but 8 sacks is ridiculous.

And by the way, Jarad Allen got 4.5 of those on his own. That’s one dude Packers. One dude who you knew was going to tear it up going into that game and you let him run wild. Granted, he has a mullet, and those are intimidating, so I can’t blame you but so much.

Update: The Bo Jackson Nike cross trainers have been nominated by James for best shoe. Good call on those, I really miss all that “Bo knows” stuff, and the K-mart knock off “Moe knows” with pictures of Moe from the 3 stooges.
