As I reflect upon NC State's basketball season ending on another sour note with a loss in a bad-looking basketball game to Wake Forest, I realize that there's been a lot of sports that I haven't commented on for you, my loyal readers. I know you're waiting with baited breath now. Some of this is plenty old, so don't look for any breaking news here.
The Bears give Rex Grossman a new contract
The good news? It was a one-year deal, so they'll probably go after a QB in the draft. The bad news? Matt Ryan will be way off the board before we pick. The result? Grossman will have Orton the "game manager" and one of any number of talented but definitely lacking in some or another capacity rookies playing behind him. Long season.
Big American Party! arch nemesis Brett Favre retires
Assuming this retirement lasts through training camp - which, according to a very crying-like-a-baby-girl press conference statement, it will - I guess I'd better start figuring out some Aaron Rodgers jokes sooner rather than later.
NC State comes away from signing day with a pretty solid recruiting class
...and the cycle of "Wait until basketball season...oops, wait until football season...oops, wait until basketball season...oops, wait until football season..." continues for the Wolfpack faithful. But seriously, wait until football season.
The Seattle Supersonics are all but in Oklahoma City
As the son of a Baltimore Colts fan and a fan of a team "stolen" from Hartford, I'm all too aware of the anguish of the Supersonic faithful and the excitement of the people in OK City. I also realize that criticizing the Supersonics' move while I'm actually wearing a Carolina Hurricanes jersey would make me seem like a total douche to any ex-Whalers fan who happens to be reading this.
The Carolina Hurricanes made some trades and saw some injuries...and by some I mean tons
Corvo worked out really well for the 'Canes almost instantly. They're playing good hockey at just the right time to hold off the rest of the Southeast Division and get into the playoffs relatively hot. Especially playing at home.
Roger Clemens is a douchebag...and Congress wants to call him on it
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
