Gilbert Arenas Is Packing Heat

December 31, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NBA, Uncategorized

Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards is being investigated for allegedly storing firearms in his locker.

They started investigating two weeks ago, you guys just found about it,” Arenas said. “They just wanted to know where I got them from and make sure they’re not dirty guns.”

Reporters asked if Arenas at any time showed the guns to anyone, and he — despite the protests of Wizards PR staff — said “Yes, I showed them to someone, I showed them to team security when I handed them to them and said give them to the police.”

Did he take the guns out of the locker room at any time? His reply: “Yeah, I took them out of this locker room. I had to take them out to get them out of here to give to security. You see they didn’t take the whole locker out of here.”

Arenas told me last week “I wouldn’t have brought them to D.C. had I known the rules. After my daughter was born, I was just like, I don’t need these anymore. I don’t want them around the kids. We are working with the league and the authorities.”

Randy Moss Likes Fake Randy Moss

December 30, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NFL

Randy Moss of the New England Patriots used the Jumbo-tron to interact with a 12 year old in a Moss mask.

Moss and Shumaker went back and forth — Shumaker started with Moss’ signature “separation” move, drawing cheers from a sold-out Gillette Stadium. Moss saw what was going on, and responded with a move of his own, drawing more cheers. Shumaker continued the celebration, pumping his fist and getting the crowd louder and louder. Moss, egged on by his teammates, continued the interaction.

And as officials continued their review to see if Moss has crossed the goal line, Gillette Stadium erupted with a chant of “Ran-dy! Ran-dy! Ran-dy!”

Shumaker’s shared celebration with Moss was undoubtedly the lightest moment of the season at Gillette Stadium, and quickly became a hot postgame topic in the Patriots locker room.

Joe Gibbs Talks About The Washington Redskins

December 29, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NFL

Joe Gibbs wants everyone to know that he has nothing to do with the current state of the Washington Redskins.

For me, personally, I haven’t talked to Dan about major decisions or anything,” Gibbs said. “So for me, when I talk to him, it’s kind of a friend. . . . We hope all the decisions and everything he’s going to make — whatever they may be, I’m not aware of them — I think we all hope that they’re going to turn out best for the Redskins.”

Loose Gibbsian translation: The farther everyone gets away from overseeing this maddening mess of an organization, the better off every coach is. He doesn’t have to worry about Albert Butterworth’s caloric intake or his crass insubordination. He doesn’t have to worry about his own assistant coach interviewing for Zorn’s job. Or the second abysmal offensive performance in six nights, which the cruel-humor people at ESPN and NBC made America watch.

End Of The Road For Fantasy Football

The halftime show Sunday afternoon was supposed to be a celebration for Giants fans in their team’s final regular-season game at Giants Stadium.

But the home team trailed badly by then on its way to a humiliating loss to the Carolina Panthers. So the mood at intermission was more like that at a funeral with 78,809 mourners.

Jon Gruden Thinking About Cleveland?

Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden is being mentioned as a potential head coach for the Cleveland Browns.

One of the rumors making the rounds in connection with Mike Holmgren’s possible return to Seattle was that Holmgren would then try to lure Jon Gruden, a former Holmgren assistant in Green Bay, out of the broadcast booth.

But Gruden has made it clear that he won’t coach next year, and since football coaches always tell the truth we’ll take Gruden at his word.

But he’s the latest theory that is snaking through the NFL rumor mill.  If Holmgren decides to keep coach Eric Mangini in place for a year, Holmgren then can pursue Gruden after the 2010 season.

New Orleans Saints Trying To Play Smarter

December 24, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NFL

The New Orleans Saints are looking for their offense to rebound from their loss to the Dallas Cowboys last week.

There’s opportunities for big plays no matter who you’re playing. It’s just kind of finding the right situation, the right timing,” Brees said.

Payton said New Orleans brings a number of long passing plays into each game plan and understands the need to hit on some of them.

“Drew does a real good job of getting the ball down the field. A couple weeks ago at Washington we had a number of big plays, real big shot opportunities and those ended up helping us win,” Payton said. “It’s important offensively to do that.”

Unable to hit such plays against Dallas, the Saints faced seven third downs and converted only one.

“We didn’t execute, but there are things that can be fixed,” Brees said. “We have been a good team on third down. We have ever since coach Payton’s been here and we’ve all been here for four years. We just didn’t do it very well the other night.”

Martin Brodeur Sets Another NHL Record

December 23, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NHL

New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur became the NHL all-time shutouts leader, sparking lots of debate regarding New Jersey’s trap system and it’s role in Brodeur’s success.

In the eyes of some, Martin Brodeur's records are a result of playing behind the trap (katchop)

Further, more than any other club, the Devils has been committed to team defense. Brodeur’s first full season, 1993-4, coincided with Jacques Lemaire’s first behind the Devils bench, and Lemaire — certainly among the best coaches in league history — gave the team a structured system of play. The Devils have rarely departed from that style since, regardless of who was behind the bench.

Lemaire said Ken Dryden was the best goalie he ever saw, but Patrick Roy and Dominik Hasek rank as Brodeur’s peers among the top goalies in the last 20 years. A good case can be made for all three as the best of the era.

New England Is Nervous

December 22, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NFL

New England Patriots fans are worried about Tom Brady.

New England Patriots fans are concerned that Tom Brady, shown here ordering lunch during the 4th quarter on Sunday, has been distracted lately (katchop)

In the interim, it’s time to wonder about Brady’s health and effectiveness. In the last four weeks, the New England QB has four touchdown passes and six interceptions. He has not played a single game with more TDs than picks. Even at Miami, where Brady passed for 352 yards, he threw one interception in the end zone and another to effectively end the game. And yesterday he threw fewer passes in a complete game performance (23) than he has in any contest since the first week of the 2006 season.

Back then, the Patriots had no passing game amid the Deion Branch holdout. Behind the newly created tandem of veteran Corey Dillon and rookie Laurence Maroney, New England ran the ball 41 times in a 19-17 win over Bills at Foxborough. Pre-Randy Moss and pre-Wes Welker, there was much talk early that season of how the Patriots had become a running team.

The Brady of today looks far more like the Brady of 2006 than the aerial assault weapon of 2007.

Nate Robinson Wants Out Of NY

D’Antoni kept Robinson on the bench. Goodwin said it was the strongest indication yet that Robinson doesn’t have a future in New York.

“D’Antoni did not even look Nate’s way, which … sent a clear message to me that he had no intention to play Nate Robinson anytime soon,” Goodwin wrote in an email to Yahoo! Sports. “Nate, despite whatever shortcomings coach D’Antoni may think that he has, is not Satan, but can clearly score.”

Is Sean Payton A Genius?

December 19, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NFL

The New Orleans Saints think that head coach Sean Payton might be the smartest man on earth.

Payton, though, may be a better coach now than he was in 2006.

Besides the success of taking the Saints to the NFC Championship Game later that season, Payton had humbling seasons in 2007 (7-9) and 2008 (8-8) before this year’s 13-game winning streak has given the team a 13-0 record and in a chase for history.

“I think, just like any player, a coach going into his fourth season as a head coach, you just find ways to continue to better game plan, better motivate, all those things,” Brees said.

“We all live and learn and we all try to get better. I absolutely see him getting better and better every year.”

Tiger Woods’ Doctor Faces New Charges

December 18, 2009 By: Katchop Category: Golf

Dr. Anthony Galea’s treatment of Tiger Woods is going to be investigated by the Florida Department of Health.

Although the DOH spokesman would not confirm or deny that an investigation into Galea was underway, “Florida statutes provides that the practice of medicine or an attempt to practice medicine without a license to practice in Florida is a felony of the third degree.”

Galea’s former assistant MaryAnne Catalano told authorities in September that Galea does not have a license to practice in the U.S.

“The UAI looks at the facts and determine if an investigation needs to take place,” Doc Kokol, the spokesman, told the Daily News. “If there is an investigation, (the DOH) could coordinate with local law enforcement.” Kokel added that there is no record of a state health care practitioner issued to Galea.

During the stop an odor of marijuana could be smelled by the officer coming from the interior of the vehicle,” Schiralli said in the release.
According to the report, the officer asked Babineaux if there was any marijuana in the vehicle. The report stated “Babineaux looked scared and nervous. He rubbed his face and kept looking back at the vehicle.”

“Gwinnett County Police K9 responded to the location and a positive alert to the odor of narcotics was given by the dog,” said Schiralli.

During a search of the Escalade police found 41 grams of marijuana in three separate bags, according to Schiralli.

Mike Holmgren Thinking About Cleveland Browns

Former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren is considering taking the open GM position with Cleveland Browns.

Holmgren arrived Monday after being invited by Cleveland owner Randy Lerner. He was again at team headquarters in Berea, Ohio, on Tuesday along with his agent, Bob LaMonte. Holmgren is not scheduled to leave Tuesday, a sign that could indicate the sides are working out details on a contract.

Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said Holmgren was scheduled to meet with coach Eric Mangini, but did not know if that meeting has taken place.

The length of Holmgren’s stay — and LaMonte’s inclusion — points to his strong interest in taking over the Browns, who have struggled since returning to the league as an expansion team in 1999. Cleveland has had four coaches, just two winning seasons and one playoff appearance in 11 years.

Tortorella also left no doubt that Chris Drury, who has scored one goal since the first period of the season and has nine points (2-7) in 28 games while going minus-eight, will slot in as one of those top six.

“My responsibility right now is to really focus on getting our top players going,” said Tortorella, whose team has scored two goals or fewer in 15 of the last 19. “I want to get them into situa tions where they gain confidence.

“Chris is struggling tremendously, but he is very important to the club. When he relaxes, the game comes to him and he’s a different player.”

And they just skimmed the Gawker site looking for pics of Agent Zero and Juan Encarnacion. True story. But I digress.

Similar to Improv Everywhere’s old prank at Yankee Stadium, Agent Lathan (a.k.a. “Rob”) recently pretended to get lost during a New York Knicks game. Throughout the second half “Rob” kept appearing further and further away from his assigned seat with a confused look on his face.

Naturally, Knicks fans went crazy trying to help him find his way back.

Not so, according EA’s follow-up, which reinforced their commitment to the “Tiger Woods PGA Tour” series.

“There is no change in our marketing strategy for the franchise,” EA said in a statement to GameDaily. “Our strong relationship with Tiger for more than a decade remains unchanged.”

Redman, who will start because Matt Ryan is out with a turf-toe injury, acknowledges he needs to shake off some rust, but at least he’ll get to the work with the first team this week.

Redman filled in for Ryan on Sunday against Tampa Bay on short notice and with only about 15 plays of practice with the first team.

He’s set to make his first start since the end of the 2007 season and his 11th NFL start overall.

Against Tampa Bay, Redman completed 21 of 43 passes for 234 yards and two touchdown passes, including a game-winning 5-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White with 23 seconds to play.

Will the Houston Texans ever be able to beat the Indianapolis Colts? Sunday’s agonizing 35-27 setback—the 15th loss in 16 games since the Houston franchise joined the NFL in 2002—came after the Texans, now 5-6, led 17-0 over their division rivals and could have led by more had an Andre Johnson touchdown not been called back. In Week Nine, the Colts, who are now 11-0, beat the Texans when kicker Kris Brown missed a 42-yard field-goal attempt as time expired. Peyton Manning, in just another day at the office, completed 27 of 35 passes Sunday, and the Colts put up 21 fourth-quarter points.

None of this is to say that the Harvard grad automatically qualifies as the Buffalo Bills quarterback of the future. But doubtless he’s the quarterback of the present, the deserving starter, a cerebral sort who brings more to the line of scrimmage than Trent Edwards, the beleaguered player he’s displaced.

“It’s the experience,” Owens said. “He’s not a stranger to being back there at the quarterback position and he’s recognizing defenses. He’s putting us in situations for us to win whether it’s run or pass, and the guys up front are giving him a little bit of time to kind of assess that and he’s delivering the ball.”

Abridged translation: T.O. likes Fitzpatrick better than the other guy, who’s actually more experienced. Or at least he likes him more for now.

The Who’s Super Bowl performance will follow the Dec. 22 release of “Greatest Hits,” which Universal Music Enterprises describes as the “largest single-disc ‘best of’ collection from The Who in more than 10 years” and the “first to span the group’s entire recording career to date, from 1964 to 2006.” The set will feature 19 songs, as well as an essay by renowned music critic Dave Marsh.
