"G" hires an agent

Gerald Henderson has hired an agent, basically bringing his Blue Devils career to an end. This is disappointing, but not a big surprise. With the upside Gerald has to his game, he should mature into a fine NBA player. I just wish he would have decided to stay for his senior season, potentially lead the Dukies to a possible National Championship, and probably have his jersey raised to the rafters of other Duke greats. None of that was guaranteed, and neither was his stock in a pro career. The NBA call was too great to leave on the table and wait for another year. I don't blame him for jumping, and he'll be missed.

All the best to G and thanks for the memories!

Gruden to join the booth for Monday Night Football

Jon Gruden to replace Kornhieser. I'm somewhat stunned by this. Jon has such a hunger to coach football that I have to wonder how long this will last. He's probably my favorite coach of all time despite how things finished up with the Bucs. Maybe he's ready to settle down and spend more time with the family. His work ethic is legendary and you know he'll be prepared. The dude knows his football. I just may have to watch more MNF next season.

Bad Manny, Banned!

News hit the wire today that Manny Ramirez has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for using a performance enhancing drug. All I can say is WOW! I am floored by this, but not shocked. Another thing is I'm happy there's that gaping hole in the Dodger lineup and not the Red Sox.
