- While we all enjoyed the draft and a mild reprieve from lockout talk, Reggie Bush wasn’t sharing the love. He sat somewhere–presumably in a 60-foot yacht with his Cuban model girlfriend–and watched as the Saints drafted Alabama running back and former Heisman winner Mark Ingram in the first round. Like a jilted lover, Bush let his emotions do the talking on Twitter, and said goodbye to New Orleans in 140 characters or less. But don’t worry, Reggie, Drew Brees has your back.
- With said draft over, be prepared for daily speculation about signings and trades that can’t happen until some men in suits say they can. What else are we going to do? I guess we could start turning the most minor Twitter missteps into major news. For now, we’ll just stick with musing about Kevin Kolb likely going to the NFC West, with Arizona as the front runner.
- It seems we’re always learning something new about Tim Tebow. A month ago we discovered that he wears shirts with animated waves, surfers, and fireworks. Now, we know that the next time we appear at an event to speak alongside Tebow (he invites us all the time, but we always have other speaking engagements) we’d better bring our workout gear.
- Ladainian Tomlinson is still ready for whatever role the Jets give him next season.
- The Daily Norseman decided to cut through all the punditry surrounding the Vikings’ surprising selection of Christian Ponder and talk to Bud Elliot, the editor of the Florida State SB Nation Blog who watched nearly every snap Ponder took in college.
- Joining the ranks of semi-famous daughters on NFL cheerleading squads, Doug Flutie’s daughter Alexa will be waving her pom poms in New England next year. What’s that? The only reason you’d be interested in this item is if we had a picture of Alexa? Fine, but I don’t approve of this. Did I mention she’s the reigning Miss Massachusetts?
And We Digress…
The digression already started thanks to Alexa, so let’s keep it going with a strange and disturbing video Gagnon stumbled over yesterday. We’re sure this product has had a healthy influence on the self-esteem of young girls.
