The ESPY nominees were announced today, and I'd like to encourage everyone to go out and support your favorite writer—yours truly.
I was nominated for Best Record Breaking Performance (most shameless pleas to readers for them to click on ads in a single blog of all time), and I hope everyone supports me by voting. You have no idea how much I want to get on stage to accept that award, and punch Justin Timberlake in the face for making the song "Sexy Back."
Du du du oooh ooh, I need ya girl, du du...Piece of crap, it's in my head again. Thanks a lot Justin. Quick, I need something to distract me from the music. My job? What's your suggestion? For me to do the task at hand? That could work...
Jurors in ex-Bengal Chris Henry's assault trial will resume deliberations Tuesday, after failing to arrive at a consensus on Monday.
Closing arguments were made Monday afternoon. Henry, on trial for striking an 18-year old in the face, claims the boy was hurling racial slurs at him and his friends, so Henry acted in self-defense. The jury holds Henry's NFL future in its hands. He'll likely be thrown out of the league if convicted.
You know, for a professional athlete, Chris Henry doesn't sound very tough. Since when did "racial slurs" cause one to defend themselves by throwing punches?
Henry obviously doesn't understand that "...words will never hurt him."
Later in the day, this case was given a mistrial. Chris Henry's life must suck right now. Earlier this week, he got his car towed away from the parking lot of the court where his case turned out to be bogus. Bummer.

The Lions are high on Calhoun's speed? I didn't know Brian was a drug dealer. John Kitna is gonna have a fit when he hears this. That's a sin.

Packers' MLB Nick Barnett has completed a deferred prosecution agreement stemming from an incident that happened at an Appleton nightclub last summer and will avoid a criminal conviction.
I guess Barnett wasn't lying when he said the Packers defense is going to be more aggressive...
