Dwane Casey could have done that: KG misses a jumper as regulation ends, forcing overtime. The Wolves take a lead in OT, only to see the very mediocre Portland come back to win at the end. With the exception of early January, that sounds like the Casey script, acted out by new coach Randy Wittman.
Yeah, you can cook. But can you farm? Not sure why that Mitch Hedberg bit seems appropriate to describe the Cowboys coaching situation. It really might not, but we do like saying it. In any event, the Cowboys are set to hire Jason Garrett, not to be confused with Mrs. Garrett from “Facts of Life” (below, bottom right). The only question now: Will he be the offensive coordinator or the new head coach? Seems like kind of a strange dilemma. Like, “I’m going to buy this hamburger. But I don’t know if I’m going to eat it, or throw it at that clown.” Or something like that.
Um, Reggie, you can’t do that: According to a Yahoo Sports report, taped conversations could help prove Reggie Bush and his family received nearly $280,000 in cash, rent and gifts while he was playing football at USC.
They had a better kicker: The West took down the East 12-9 in last night’s NHL All-Star game. In a not at all related story, SI.com continues its descent into complete madness. Cheerleaders. Swimsuits. Jenn Sterger. It’s just getting worse and worse (and we really mean that). Perhaps those are just some of their “nuances.”
Mrs. G: Taking the good, taking the bad.
