Steeler Free Agents, Pens Lose, Bush & Revis Declare, NFL Mock Draft, Belichick Video

NHL:
Despite their best attempts to force an eventual shootout loss, the Penguins fall in regulation to the Lightning. That's 11 losses in a row against Tampa.

Congrats to Sidney Crosby, your top vote-getter for the NHL All-Star Game.

NFL:
Listen up, Steeler fans: Michael Bush, the object of your dreams, is declaring for the NFL Draft

Also in for the '07 draft: Pitt Panther Darrelle Revis

Wondering how hard Plex took the Giants loss on Sunday? He was partying with Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, and Nick Cannon a few hours later

Ron Cook takes a look at the Steelers' pending free agent decisions. Entering the last year of their contracts: Polamalu, Faneca, Porter, Haggans, Kreider, Simmons, and Smith. Can you hear the ka-ching sound?

Speaking of the 2007 NFL Draft, here's an updated mock draft I found while scouring the web. This one has the Steelers taking Lamarr Woodley, a 6-2, 270-pound DE from Michigan. Not going to happen. And Brady Quinn is NOT going #2 overall. Write it down.

Terrell Owens is taking his 25 million reasons to live to a new publicist

Video of Bill Belichick's Shove Heard Round the World



NBA:
Jason Kidd files for divorce from Juwanna Mann. I mean Joumana Kidd. Jason is claiming extremely cruelty. Sounds like a great time to bring up Bob Ryan's controversial 2003 comments on the Kidds.

Aaron Gray, lurking at #15 in the latest 2007 NBA Mock Draft.

MLB:
On the day of Hall of Fame inductions for Cal Ripken and Tony Gwynn, what are we talking about? A publicity whore of a sportswriter who appeared on every show known to man on Tuesday.

RANDOM FUN STUFF:
Pretty much the worst photo of Britney Spears you've ever seen

Pretty much the worst photo of Kelly Clarkson you've ever seen

One way (perhaps the only way) Britney could go lower is to do the Reed/Salisbury thing. It's only a matter of time.

About the whole draft thing (Holy shit are we talking about the draft already?) How long before we start to draft a replacement for the icon that is Hines Ward? I don't see a potential number one on our team asof now, I know, Hines took years to develop into what he is today. Do you think we'll go after a big name reciever this year or next?

The pics of Britney and Kelly Clarkson (who's not that hot anyway) are very telling. It just goes to show you that most celebrities are not that hot in real life when they're not given the opportunity to control a photo shoot.

It's a shame to see how trashy she's become. Mondesi, your photo is awful, but this one gives it a run for its money: http://static.flickr.com/30/58220164_7f23c1e9f0.jpg .

Thanks for the link!

oh the wonders of makeup, and with regards to the ward thing, the development of his replacement isn't as much of an issue as when hines is going to break down, i'm not knocking his toughness or anything like that, but anyone with his frame who regularly subjects himself to the physical punishment he does is going to break down earlier, hines is not a guy who is going to have a "productive" 15 year career(doesn't mean he won't hang around that long).

Please keep in mind that my link was just some yo-yo dressed up for Halloween.

The Kelly Clarkson shows us that ANYONE who is normal looking can have the right make up person and stylist make them look hot.

As for Hines, Santonio is the next #1, and he might take that title in 2007.

Great comment about Hines breaking down. He is getting older and his style of play doesnt bode well for him staying healthy

Is Mondesi ok? Haven't heard anything out of him for a few days.

With the trades and acquisitions made going into the draft, plus the bulk of the team that is carried over from last season, and the trades and draft picks made during the draft, it sure seems like the Pats are going to be the team to beat in the AFC this season, and perhaps in all of the NFL.

Considering the Pats were almost in the Superbowl last season with a pathetic receiving corps and that they've added very talented players into said receiving corps this season, barring some nasty injury(ies), they look to be the team to take it all.I say injury(ies) because I think they could survive an injury or two to some positions, but if they lost Brady they'd probably have a hard time recovering.


I wish I could say that the Redskins did well in the draft and/or in free agency but so many holes still exist that I'm not sure they'll be significantly better than last season. I suppose on face they should be if they can keep their corners healthy. With Landry (argh, hard to type that name as a Redskin!!) back there with a healthy secondary they might be able to cheat up more and put more pressure on opposing QBs. Might.

They still have what should be a lot of talent in the receiving positions, and Campbell should be better, but they don't have the quality on either line (offense or defense) that I wish they'd have, so it could be yet another year of .500 at best, or worse.

Still, the NFC East looks to be the NFC Least again this season. None of the teams there look like they'll be that good, and none really look ready to step up and take the division.
