Owners of Brett Farve rejoice!
(I am one of those owners who had to bench him, even though I was able to steal him in the 9th round of a ten team draft)
Traffic Cops, be afraid, be very afraid in the Twin Cities! remember “straight cash homie” is going to a city near you!

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a police traffic officer with his car.
The officer tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer along the street, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.
Barrington said an assault charge was being considered.
The officer was not seriously hurt, WCCO-TV reported
Where is Ludacris when you need him?
Maybe we should extend an Amber warning to all the skeezers and skanks and scallywags (all better known as hoes, and like method man and redman, I mean it in a good way)
The Vikings sent a third-round pick to the Patriots in return for Moss, who becomes a key weapon for Minnesota QB Brett Favre.
The teams had not yet confirmed the trade. But Vikings S Madieu Williams said on Twitter that the deal was “official.”
Moss returns to the team where he spent the first seven years of his career. Moss caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota.
It leaves the Patriots and QB Tom Brady without the stretch-the-field wideout who set an NFL single-season record of 23 receiving TDs in 2007.
From the Patriots position, they were on the come-up. First, they got more for the guy then what they paid for. When he was dealt from the blogs favorite team, the RAIDERS, they only got a 4th round pick, because they were happy to get rid of his contract and his dour attitude. (We still miss what could have been here in Oakland Randy) It is rare in the NFL that assets acquire more value later in their careers. Second, they did not have to give him an expensive contract extension.
Moss did not get a contract extension from the Vikings as part of the deal, NFL Network reported.
ESPN reported that Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke by phone to inform Moss of the trade on Wednesday morning. The network described their conversation as cordial.
For Favre, the trade gives him a serious receiving threat that he has long lobbied to acquire and that he has lacked this season with Sidney Rice injured. Favre, with the Packers in 2007, pushed the team to acquire Moss but lost out to the Patriots.
This is exactly what Father Time, I mean Favre needs to get the offense on a roll. Soon, they will get Sidney Rice back and that offense will be firing on all cylinders. You will have AP (not our boy tophatal, but Adrian Peterson) Headache (not the AND1 baller, but Percy Harvin) Moss, and Rice. Plus, you have Shank Em at TE, so weapons are everywhere.
The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET.
Moss’ final game in a New England uniform on Monday turned out to be his only in more than three years in which he did not catch a pass. The Herald reported that Moss had asked the Patriots to trade him after Week 1, when he had an outburst about his contract following a win against Cincinnati. Moss later apologized and said he and coach Belichick had cleared the air.
Moss, whose deal expires after the season, said after Week 1 that he wanted to stay with Patriots but added he thought this would be his final year in New England.
Moss is set to appear on Monday Night Football for the second straight week when the Vikings travel to play the New York Jets next week. He’ll likely be matched up again with Jets CBDarrelle Revis, who hasn’t played since tweaking his hamstring on a TD pass he allowed to Moss in Week 2.
Moss will be just second player to appear on MNF back to back. Keith Browner played for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants on Oct. 5, 1987, then played for the Los Angeles Raiders against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 12 (viaESPN and Elias Sports Bureau).
Since the Vikings have already had their bye and the Patriots’ is Sunday, Moss could become the sixth player to play in 17 games if he plays in the rest of the Vikings’ contests.
This is another bonus to fantasy players who got jobbed this week by his unusual lack of effectiveness. It is the functional equivalent of the “do-over” in backyard sports. I guarantee that Favre will target him early and often…he is sure to be a “hit”!
One kid who will never want for anything and has great genes: Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady welcome a new addition to the home!
December 9, 2009
The only thing else is to find out that the kid has a Mensa level IQ, or is hing like a horse. The DailyMail brings the good news to light.
Supermodel Gisele Bündchen has given birth to a son.
The boy is the first child together for the 29-year-old and her husband, American football star Tom Brady.
Brazilian Bünchen is already stepmother to Brady’s son John Edward, two, whose mother is his ex-girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan.
Bündchen is the world’s highest paid model, with an estimated $150million fortune.
Bündchen and Brady started dating in December 2006 – just weeks after the athlete ended his three year relationship with Sex and the City star Moynahan.
Just a two months into his relationship with Bündchen, Brady was surprised to learn Moynahan was pregnant with his child and she gave birth to John in August 2007.
You are able to make your move that fast. If he was like most guys, you try to make that one last move for break-up sex. This move is dangerous, but worth the rewards. If you are ending on a good note and not due to scandal, you might get that one to remember the relationship by. He was smooth enough to not wear a hat and got caught slipping with John. But, is it really slipping if you and the mother have wealth and love? He might have gotten caught up, but I am trying to get caught like that.
This is the proverbial golden ticket.
Mark Sanchez is doing GQ… and why wouldn’t he? He is the newly drafted QB of the New York Jets. Everything is supposed to be bigger and flashier in NY than everywhere else. That is what they want you to believe. He is also reportedly dating her now. Chemistry happened on the set, and now they are an item…
This isn’t a post to hate on NY, like we did here (because it does suck…and I am going there TONIGHT! lol) or to hate on USC like we kinda did here (sorry Erik, and you are right, the song girls are my new favorites…) but to say being a QB must be nice.
I mean winning Super Bowls are nice and all, but wouldn’t you rather have Santa leave this under your tree (or menorah if you are part of or Jewish viewer block, or pole if you celebrate festivas)
You may think that is not a really good example, because everyone KNOWS that Tom Brady is a great QB.
Here is Jeff Garcia and his wife Carmella Decesare.
We give him Big Ups here, since he is now with the Raiders, but he is an average QB, that bounced around the CFL before sticking with the 49ers.
So, mothers/fathers groom your child to become a QB. They get all the breaks…so he can act a fool like Joe here….
or make a bunch of money crossdressing like Joe…
because it’s NY! Enjoy your time and all your loot. Just invest in your future…rehab, divorce and lawsuits… just in case…
BTW Broadway Joe was really good when healthy…but he had bad knees

Even if you don’t like football, you have to be amused at the stunts of Terrell Owens and other performers during the course of the football game.
Most people who start off playing or watching football do because as young men or women, something spoke to them about the game. Maybe it was the ability to run on the green grass, or the love of competition was the key to you pressuring your parents for your first piece of equipment. Whatever the reason, we worship at the mecca of football every Saturday, Sunday, some Thursdays and Fridays to watch the players of our favorite teams strap it up and play football.
The reason that I am ticked off is that there is a clear double standard in football, and I have not really seen anyone address the differences. I was at home watching football with the entire Too Old crew, rooting for the Raiders. (See our live blog thoughts on the game) Before the Raider game, Green Bay was playing Minnesota. Since I have Aaron Rodgers on my fantasy team ( BTW, I put the beatdown on a buddy and won all the awards this week in the fantasy realm on ESPN) I watched the game with some interest. (That and he led a mini golden era in CAL football with the upset of USC and the almost upset the following year)
Aaron Rodgers scores his first rushing touchdown in the second half of a very close game. The game is made emotional by the fact that Rodgers has to replace a legend in Brett Favre, and they are playing his first game at home against the hated Minnesota Vikings. So, after his scores, he is clearly jacked up. This is the time that he will be able to turn the crowd that was so pro Brett Favre into fans of number 12, Aaron Rodgers. So, he does what is a time honored tradition, which is to hop into the stands afters scoring, called the Lambeau Leap.
Now, here is where I have my problem. Look at the picture closely. You see to refs standing right there watching the entire spectacle. They are always sort of amused when it happens. Some make it up, others do not have the strength to get up there after a long play. How is this not showing up the other team, or causing a non football spectacle on the field? Honestly, I think that all should be able to admit that it is. This is a slight delay to the game. But, for showmanship value, I think that it is worth it. It is not Peter Griffin over the top in his performance from the Music Man.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
In the episode “Patriot Games” of Family Guy, Peter Griffin sings the song complete with choreography, leading the crowd into chorus, as a victory dance after scoring a touchdown and after guest Tom Brady tells him “no showboating”.
That is a little over the top, but pretending and paying tribute to Usain Bolt and his stunning victory in the Olympics is not distracting or insulting to the other team. He got into a track stand and pretended to go off on the sound of an imaginary gun. Stunts like this where Hines Ward dances to MIMIC Chad Johnson
And the original trickster in all his glory and different moves
( start at 1:15)
There is a story behind his celebrations and the Riverdance has a funny story behind it. Apparently the dance is also a diss at Brian Urlacher as well. The story behind the story is that Urlachers baby mama was suing Lord of the Dance, Micheal Flatley. Since the Bengals were playing the Bears, it seemed like the perfect in your face answer to a defense that talked a lot of trash about how they were going to be able to stop Ocho Cinco.
But, back to my man, T.O. The football as a camera and other funny celebrations go to show his creativity. I hated him as a 49er coming and celebrating at the star.
But, I respected that and I think that he respected George Teague coming and lying his ass out for his celebration on the scared star.
Now, as a Cowboy, I appreciate the celebrations even more. The league will need to slow down and let players show some of their more personal side. Unlike all the other sports where you can see the player/athlete, football has helmets which obscure the player. As a player, I would imagine that is nice, since it gives you some anonymity that you might otherwise not get. But, for the true showman, you have to let a player play.
So, in conclusion, STOP HATING NFL! You make me like you less. Notice I didn’t say that I was going to stop watching football, because I wont. But, you will make me angry and I will continue to vent in my blog….lol But, seriously. QUIT HATING on entertainment.
