You Gonna Buy This?

This is kinda cool but also kind of disappointing. The Chargers will unveil new uniforms and a new logo Wednesday, March 14th. It is always pretty cool when teams get new uniforms, it’s just that the Chargers have some of the coolest uniforms in the league. Whatchu know ‘bout them powder blues? Anyway, maybe their new logo will be that swoll Jack Nicholson.

More Mascot Mayhem

First we had T-Rac in a golf cart running over Adrian McPherson. McPherson then sued T-Rac. Now there is another lawsuit against a mascot. A man is suing the Indiana Pacers mascot, Boomer, because he claims Boomer tackled him and permanently injured his back. What is up with this guy? Is he just after money or is he the biggest puss ever for letting a mascot take him out? Here is Boomer, a cat who tackled a grown man and hurt him.

New B-ball Uni's

Last night Syracuse debuted their new Nike uniforms against UConn. They are new form-fitting tops, kinda like Under-Armour with extra baggy shorts. You can see a video clip of Syracuse rockin' the uni's here. Along with the Orangemen, Nike is also redesigning the uniforms of Florida, Arizona, and Ohio St. Florida supposedly has already worn theirs and the other schools should debut them sometime this week. Here is Nike's explanation of what they were trying to do.
"Basketball works in lock step with the music and entertainment culture, specifically hiphop," said Hans George, Nike's general manager of global basketball apparel. "Hip-hop is growing up. It's becoming more businesslike." Patricia Mears, deputy director of the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, said Nike's look might be more old school than futuristic. "It's probably true that the pants take their cue from the hip-hop look," she said, "but the overall silhouette also reminds me of men's casual sportswear from the midcentury. Often, American men donned sleek tops and tucked them into pleated full-cut trousers." But beyond style, the new outfits are supposed to be more functional. George and some of the athletes say that because the jersey is body-fitting and made of two synthetics, Sphere and Dri-FIT, it will better wick away moisture. And by eliminating 10 inches of fabric from the waist, where it bunches up, players have a cleaner look, said David Egelhoff, the director of men's basketball operations at Ohio State. Yet Daryl Gross, the athletic director at Syracuse, said its greater effect might be on the game. "You can't grab the jersey," he said.
Personally, I've never seen anybody in hip-hop rockin' skin-tight shirts but what do I know. Here are some sample pics of the different uniforms.

Yep, it Brad Johnson, the new backup QB for the Dallas Cowboys. I know what you're way all that stuff can be true, but it is. At least that's what his website says. So do you think Johnson will be a good addition to the 'Boys? This one tall man at church used to look like him.

New and Notes - Dom Rhodes and Randy McMichael

Dom Rhodes met with NY Giants GM Jerry Reese and Tom Coughlin Friday and he supposedly underwent a physical and met with the other G-men coaches today, Saturday.

Also, it is reported that the Dolphins are trying to shop around TE Randy McMichael. They reportedly want a third round pick for him. We'll see what happens with both these items.

P.S. - Visanthe Shiancoe is now a Viking. On a side note I always thought his name was spelled Visante Shanco or something like that. Whatever.

NFL Free Agency Has Begun!

Here are some thoughts on the first days of free agency:

Why the hell do the Bucs want so many Q’s? They signed Garcia, traded for Dick Plummer, Limo is coming back from death, and they still have Bruce Gradkowski who they thought was good. If you melt all those QB’s down and then mash them together, they might make a solid starter. They should bring back Shaun King. More here.

People mad overpaid for players that aren’t nearly as good as their contracts. Sure Nate Clements is a good corner, but $80 mill? The guys has never even made a Pro Bowl and now he is the highest paid defender in the NFL?!! In the Niners defense, they can always restructure Clements contract later if he doesn’t produce like they want, but at least $22 million is guaranteed. Hey if the dumb Niners want to overspend and waste money that is there own choice, but they ruin free agency for others. Just think how much the Cowboys will have to fork over for T-New when his contract is up in two years. By the way Champ Belly’s last deal was 7 yrs for $63 million. Do you think Clements is $17 million better than Bailey? I don’t. More here.

Speaking of overspending, the Browns paid Eric Steinbach $49.5 million over 7 years. Everyone thought last year that the Vikings were crazy for paying Steve Hutchinson $49 million for 7 years and now this? I know that Steinbach isn’t better than Hutchinson. Oh well, the Browns continue to be the gayest franchise. More here.

Todd France is having the best week ever. Check it out why here. Even if he gets a miniscule percentage of his clients salaries he negotiated, France is a very wealthy man. Mover over Drew Rosehaus, there is a new top dog in agent land.

Here are some other cool movers around the league: The Pats got Adalius Thomas. Also the Hobbit is now a Ram and the Munchos signed Big Daddy Dan Wilkinson. The Bills got Derrick Dockery and the ‘Skins got London Fletcher-Baker. As for the greatest team in the world, the ‘Boys are chillin’ right now although big Len Davis did visit Valley Ranch Friday, but then left without a deal finalized.
