Morning Headlines

DOWN GOES HOSSA: The Penguins dropped a less-than-inspiring 5-1 decision at Boston, but the worst news is that of Marian Hossa, who sprained his MCL in his Pittsburgh debut. The injury was neatly summed up by Bruin Glen Murray:
"I don't know what happened," he said. "I turned, and we collided. We hit at the hips or the knee or something, then all I heard was, 'Oh [expletive], oh [expletive], oh [expletive].' I figured it had to be him."
DOWN GOES GORZO: Tom Gorzelanny missed his first start of the preseason against the Philadelphia Phillies because of left shoulder discomfort. Wow...Tom Verducci was right on the money on this prediction. And so soon in the season!
NATE WASHINGTON IS GOING TO GET PAID: The Steelers issued a $1.4 million tender for the greatest thing to ever come out of Tiffin. They also issued tenders for offensive tackle Trai Essex, guard Chris Kemoeatu, and long-snapper Greg Warren. As for linebacker Andre Frazier, "Don't let the door hit ya".
FRANTIC START TO FREE AGENCY: Not in Pittsburgh, of course. But there have been several deals done already, such as the Dolphins giving a five-year, $25 million deal to 49ers guard Justin Smiley that included a $9 million guarantee. The 49ers responded by signing former Vikings LB Dontarrious Thomas, Lions QB J.T. O'Sullivan, Panthers RB DeShaun Foster and former Steeler KR Allen Rossum. Alan Faneca is reportedly close to a deal with the Jets, who are also close to a trade for Carolina's Kris Jenkins.
1 IN EVERY 100 IN US IN JAIL: And leading the charge is Pennsylvania, who had the largest prison population growth in the Northeast last year.
GOVERNATOR GIVING KIDS TANK RIDES: Arnold Schwarzenegger owns an Austrian army tank which he's having shipped to Cali so that he can offer rides to school children. Are you listening, Ed Rendell?

Even with Nate Washington, NOTHING good has ever come out of Tiffin, Ohio.
