– As a marginal NFL receiver, Sam Hurd never once had a single rap call-out dedicated to him. Yet as soon as his double life as a drug kingpin was discovered, it was only a matter of time before Hurd’s name was shoehorned into a really bad hook. Eh, Pacman didn’t have to go to all that trouble and he got an “Archer” mention. It’s all about creativity, not scale.

– Plaxico Burress described the prospect of his return to the Giants as “a great possibility”. I’m sure Giants fans would sooner take another half dozen Gilbrides.

– “Sorry, Tim Tebow won’t be on ‘The Bachelor’” – my heartfelt condolences to no one

– Jerry Rice isn’t knocking Alex Smith or anything. He just thinks the 49ers would be better off with the 36-year-old weakened arm of Battleship Manning or possibly a rolled-up carpet wearing a helmet.
