Every now and then a story like this comes along and reminds me of just how inspiring sports can be: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed Eric LeGrand to their 90-man offseason roster, helping a great kid who suffered a horrific injury to fulfill a lifelong dream.
One of the more annoying questions to contemplate as the 2010 NFL season draws closer is: will Brett Favre will play or officially retire? Now it is Monday, June 28, 2010, and still no decision has been made; one has to wonder, what is his deal?
Brett Favre worked out with a high school team yesterday in his quest to get his arm into shape for a potential comeback with the Minnesota Vikings. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf says the decision is Favre’s, while Favre ironically contradicts his own history by claiming that when he’s done, he’s done and that you can’t come back.

Two interesting NFL stories today: First, in the ongoing Brett Favre saga, Favre will visit Dr. James Andrews on Tuesday and is expected to have surgery to repair his biceps tendon. Also, Jon Gruden will step into the MNF booth, despite his previous not-so-positive quote about ESPN.

Ignore history and, as Santayana famously said, you are condemned to repeat it.

April 2nd, 2009 was officially dubbed Jerry Angelo Day by a Chicago radio station after the Bears GM acquired Jay Cutler in a trade with Denver Broncos. An analysis of the Cutler trade shows that while the price was high, at least hope is now alive.
Kyle Orton and Jay Cutler were traded for eachother yesterday, plus some draft picks, by the Broncos and Bears. MSF provides a different kind of Orton-Cutler trade analysis with its Kyle Orton In Memoriam Photo Diary and an educated guess on whether Jay Cutler will be a Cubs fan or a White Sox fan.
