Here's hoping that former Viking LB Erin Henderson gets his life together after the two arrests for drunken driving. Come on, man! I am glad that the Broncos are keeping Jack Del Rio around; he needs some help on the D-line so that they can catch those elusive backs and quarterbacks like the Seahawks in the Super Bowl of late. Get the people to get the job done. They may have to take a page of Coach Belichick's book and let go of those whose productivity expectations doesn't quite match up with their end goal in mind: hoisting the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy at the end of Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Onward and upward.
A Word or Two About the NBA:The LA Clippers have a marvelous home record, so I expect some fun tonight in the game against Toronto. Both teams are coming off losses and want to rack up as many wins as possible. It will be exciting to see Chris Paul return this Sunday as he rehabilitation period comes to an end. I am going with the Clippers this time.
Unfair Game: OKC visits the Orlando Magic tonight, and I don't think it likely that the Magic will extend their recent winning streak of one after a game against Detroit. Kevin Durant's shooting and scoring are just too hot to handle. Thunder rolls, baby.
A belated Yellow Flag of Shame to Yoakim Noah for the use of profanity against the officials in the game the other night. I would gladly accept a donation from the professionals for any fines they incur. My son's college fund would benefit; my classroom would benefit. There is a much better way to express yourself than use four-letter bombs unsuitable for children and gentle ladies.
Lady Grid out.
