Sean Salisbury's Pictures, Accorsi Out, Garcia & DeCesare, Sonic in Pittsburgh

What's with jocks and taking pictures of their weiners on cell phones? First, we had Jeff Reed. Now, we have ex-NFL QB and much-maligned ESPN talking head Sean Salisbury taking pictures of his junk! Since Sean is the moral compass of the NFL, always telling us why we should hate Terrell Owens, would this be acceptable if Owens did it?
Who cleans up after Hurricane Accorsi in New York? Why call him Hurricane Accorsi? Could it be a trade of what turned out to be Philip Rivers, Shawne Merriman, Nate Kaeding, and Roman Oben in exchange for one Elisha Manning? Here's some additional fun facts about this trade, courtesy of Wikipedia:
-Philip Rivers, Nate Kaeding and Shawne Merriman have all made the 2007 Pro Bowl. Manning still has yet to make a Pro Bowl in the NFL.
-The Chargers will also consider the third round compensation pick from the NFL in the 2007 draft for releasing Drew Brees as being inextricably linked with the Manning trade.
-Nate Kaeding, over three years from 2004 to 2006, has a higher field goal percentage than Giants kicker
Jay Feely
-Rivers has a higher career QB Rating than Manning

-Shawne Merriman was the 2005 Defensive Rookie of the Year and led the league in sacks in 2006, despite serving a 4 game suspension after testing positive for steroids.
Yes, Jeff Garcia is still dating former Playmate of the Year Carmella Decesare. In fact, they're getting married. And Garcia's Dad is the Best Man. Seriously.
Video of possibly the worst gaffe in NHL history: Dallas' Patrik Stefan misses an empty-net goal, then Edmonton's Ales Hemsky scores a game-tying goal with two seconds in the game.

See, a playoff system isn't needed after all! Of course, I found this on the official BCS website. But why would they not be objective with that argument?
Wondering who to call to complain about the lack of the non-needed playoff system? Yahoo Sports says to blame Big 10 Commissioner Jim Delany.
2007 might be the warmest year ever. Ironically, I write this on the eve of our first semi-snowfall of the winter.
That Beatles butcher cover album finally sold on eBay. The hammer price? $28,763.
Here's a nice story to start the morning: a French prisoner "probably" ate parts of his cellmate.

Second, I love the Oilers-Stars clip, one of the all time greats!!!!
