Thought #1 I’m pretty sure 49er’s head coach Mike Singletary made Dre Bly cry yesterday. Over the weekend Bly got stripped of the ball while trying to break out some 1995 Deion Sanders moves. Following the game, which was a lose to the Falcons, Bly didn’t seem very sorry, in fact he pretty much just said he likes to have fun, so what? By Monday Bly had done a sweet 180 by the time he held a press conference apology. So what happen exactly? Pretty sure the same thing that happened every time your mom told you to just wait until you Dad came home. You remember those days. You’d been Hell to deal with all day, threw a fit in the grocery store when she wouldn’t buy you that Ninja Turtle pie, (you know, the one with the green ooze in it), spent all afternoon playing Contra, and successfully chewed, and spit out, every piece of gum you could swipe from her purse. When she said,”just wait till your father gets home.” You laughed, “ha I don’t.” Two hours and one a bright red butt later you showed quite a bit more remorse. Pretty sure that’s what Dre just went through, Papa Singletary took off his belt and suddenly dancing wasn’t so much fun. Easy Dre, suck up those tears or he’ll give you something to cry about.

Thought #2 – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has come out and said they MAY punish Raiders’ head coach Tom Cable for breaking an assistants jaw while threatening to murder him. Ah, I see how this works. Coaches and players always have different rules I suppose. I mean didn’t they when you were in school? Didn’t your pack an hour football coach warn you of the dangers of smoking? Didn’t your baseball coach accidentally get dip spit on you when ranting about how you weren’t allowed to chew? And didn’t your basketball coach forbid going out to the after party while secretly, or so he thought, sipping vodka from a coke can? Yeah Goodell you MIGHT want to step in when one of your coaching is tossing his staff around like they were wrestling buddies. You MIGHT want to say something to a team of a franchise, albeit an awful one, who is dropping first degree threats on guys. MAYBE, just MAYBE take a look at this.

Thought #3 – The Golden State Warriors have asked Steven Jackson to relinquish his title as captain after getting in an outburst in Friday nights game against the Lakers. Question: How bad does your team have to be for Steven Jackson to carry the “C” for your guys? I guess the answer is “as bad as the Warriors,’ but still this seems like a stretch. You’re talking about a career 15 and 6 guy, who’s constantly shipped around, and looks like he should be doing local commercials for some low budget personal injury lawyer. Please tell just drew names out of Don Nelson’s hat for this.

Thought #4 – Chad Henne played great last night. And now for a weeks worth of coverage stating Henne as the next Marino. As my friend Nick pointed out to me today, Henne will be completely over hyped for the next week or so in a very Romo-like fashion. I agree, until further notice he’s on “flash in the pan” status in my book. Let’s just hope he can milk a b list celebrity date or two out of it before he fizzles out.

Thought #5 – The NFL trade deadline is in one week and Brady Quinn’s name keeps popping up. The latest team interested seems to be the Raiders. Pretty sure if I was Brady I would sooner just work at the student center back at Notre Dame, but that’s up to him. On the other hand, it would probably benefit JaMarcus Russel to see a quarterback who actually uses the equipment in the weight room for something besides a bench to sit on during his daily pancake power hour.

Thought #1- Question: What’s worse than dropping a routine fly ball and costing your team a game in the playoffs? Answer: Doing all that and getting popped in the junk. Just ask Matt Holliday who completely misjudged a fly ball the other night, catching it in the crotch rather than his glove. Now I don’t think there is a guy in the world who hasn’t gotten tagged at some point during a sporting event, but we all know, its all in how you react. Some of us choose to play it off as if we are made of steel. The downside of this is that if you end up throwing up, you’re probably going to be called a douche bag. Others chose to take the comedic approach and make loud whooping noises. Of course if you don’t accompany these noises with a few witty comments, there’s a good chance you could be called a douche bag as well. It’s a delicate situation to say the least. I will say that I appreciate God putting in that little 30 second window between the tagging and the sick feeling. It’s kind of like God saying, “ok you got 30 seconds before it hits, get some where safe, preferably near a toilet, trashcan, or at the very least an old Wendy’s bag.”

Thought #2 – Some people are already complaining that they are seeing too much of Kate Hudson on T.V.kateenjoysyankees during the Yankees games. I call those people idiots. Can you really ever show me too much of Kate? I mean honestly, did you see Fool’s Gold, good lord. I could, however, go with a little less Jay-Z, although he is rocking Harry Carry’s old glasses these days so its not all bad. Funny how the more popular you are, the weirder you can dress and you’re considered “trendy” not stupid. Guarantee Jay-Z could show up to that game in a snuggie and a cowboy hat and still be money.

By the way, I wonder what that conversation is like during the game. I mean what do Kate and Jay-Z talk about? “So Jay did you um see umm How to lose a guy in 10 days?.” “Why yes Kate, but what I really liked you in was Raising Helen, that was delightful.” Oh to be a fly on the wall. Anyway, thank you A-Rod for providing me with some happy moments between pitches.

Thought #3- I’m not sure if Tim Tebow will play or not, but I’m sure the dude wants to. I’m always sure that if he does and gets injured again, heads will roll. You know exactly what I mean too, people that haven’t seen a football game in their lives will be shouting from mountains about the abuses on student athletes. I feel like he will get to play, and most likely play well, because that’s what Timmy does.

Thought #4- I went to turn on my T.V. to watch the Va. Tech game on the affiliate station here that is supposed to carry it just to find out that the local station is choosing to run golf instead. Now I have nothing against the sport of golf, in fact I’ve enjoy playing the sport before and have mad respect for anyone who is good at it. But…..golf on my T.V. when it’s football season is something I am against. In fact, have you ever noticed golf is always in T.V.? Who is watching all this coverage? In my whole life I’ve known about 8 people who have gotten excited about watching golf on t.v., and that was like middle of the summer Saturdays when its either that or some random Jackie Chan movie. I feel like golf is just hanging out there hoping and praying someone gives in and tunes in. It’s like that awful kid at the gym, who stands around shooting on the side goal, just hoping and praying that the guys playing pick up only have 9 or someone playing will roll an ankle and they’ll will be forced to give him a shot. You know this kid. He’s rocking running shoes, brought his own rubber Final Four ball that he got at Pizza Hut, and doesn’t have the ability to make a lay up, but yet he is there all the time, just wishing and hoping. Yeah, I feel like this is golf in the t.v. world, just putting it out there all the freaking time, hoping, by some miracle all the college football games get shut off and someone chooses to watch golf instead of TBS’s weekly airing of Hitch. Sorry golf, I like you, but I love football and Will Smith movies.
