Gossip, Gossip, Gossip

James Harrison...FINED!
The headlines are kinda crazy today, ladies and gents.

First off we've got the ex-NY Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger hiring a lawyer in regards to the Brett Favre allegations. Hmmmmmm. Favre met with NFL security official Milt Ahlerich on Tuesday for an interview to discuss the allegations that he sent unwanted voicemails and explicit photos to Sterger two years ago.  Sterger has refused to comment and without her involvement, the investigation could hit a dead end very soon. I'll keep you posted on this one!

Pittsburgh Steelers' James Harrison, the guy who caused not one but TWO players to get concussions on the Browns this Sunday was fined $75,000 by the NFL. It was actually only for the hit on Mohamed Massaquoi--the hit to Josh Cribbs was deemed a "legal" hit. Do you think this is fair? Some, like his agent, are calling the fine "staggering" and yet Harrison has earned over $20 million over the last three years. It's a matter of opinion, I guess. He is now making claims that he may retire because he doesn't feel he "can continue to play and be effective and ... not have to worry about injuring someone else or risking injury to myself." Apparently he is skipping practice this week. Sounds like someone's pouting!

Meanwhile, two other players New England Patriots' safety, Brandon Meriweather and Atlanta Falcons' cornerback Dunta Robinson were also each fined $50,000 for their respective hits that resulted in concussions as well. Robinson and the Eagles' DeSean Jackson (one of our 'Sean's'!) BOTH sustained concussions when Robinson leaped in the air headfirst to tackle Jackson. There is mucho debate going on right now in regards to these fines. Educate yourself here.

Pat McAffee
In other headlines, Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was drunk, wet, shirtless and placed under arrest this morning at 5am. Wow. This story is craziness!! I'm paraphrasing but basically someone was stopped at a red light and a shirtless man approached her car. She feared he would try to get into her vehicle so she ran the light and called the police. "Officers asked McAfee if he had been swimming in the canal and he said, 'I am not sure,' according to a police report. They asked him how he got wet and he said it had been raining, then told officers that his shirt was 'in the water.'"

It gets worse.

"Police asked McAfee how much he had to drink. 'A lot cause I am drunk,' McAfee said, according to the report." Yikes. Someone has some explaining to do! The fact that he posted this on Twitter before the arrest: "Bye week bye week bye week. Time to get some ish done. Happy Tuesday Party people." is NOT helping the situation. Why do people post things on Twitter????? So dumb.

That's it for today everyone!
Hope you enjoy...
