You're Welcome! Battling the Summer Dead Zone

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, this summer has been really busy for me.  As football season rolls in, MLB playoffs and hockey revs up, I'll have less to manufacture.  I have compelled to watch the CFL.  Enough said.  Until then we can all speculate about fantasy sports, training camps, etc.

1. Terrell Owens: He finally signed with a team, and not for much either.  After a season in Buffalo where he played well (55 catches 829 yards, 5 TDs on a terrible offense with a just as terrible QB situation) and was quiet (nothing to do in Buffalo) he joins the Bengals.  Bengals and Jets are taking the Raiders approach by signing and drafting anyone despite their personal problems (between them: Antonio Cromartie, Santonio Holmes, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, Cedric Benson, Carlos Dunlap).  TO will be the third wide out on a team with a stable of young tight ends and a commitment to the run.  This should be good for his show at least.

2. Dez Bryant's Stupidity:  Lots of media attention surrounded Dez when he was asked a question by Miami's staff, but it turned out he was the one who was answering with the wrong answers.  Now Bryant won't do a tradition at camp because "he didn't know about it."  Lets see how quickly the Cowboys get upset with him.  Carrying a vet's pads has been around since the 1920's when pro football began.  He better wise up and work on his image more (if its his fault or not) or he could get a bad label in the league.  Not that it matters, look above.

3. Chris Paul: CP3 is either trying to improve the Hornets, or get out of town quickly.  Injured all last year and seeing his Team USA friends sign to mega teams, Paul wants in on the action.  Darren Collison is breathing down his neck and Paul genuinely seems like he wants to win.  I would like to see him stay but this could be another NBA story we here about all year.
