TJ Lang is a douche. Any player/coach who allows eight sacks in one half of football should be embarrassed.

Mr. Lang, you should remind MD Jennings about what to do in a Hail Mary situation: bat the ball down, don’t try to catch it.

The Green Bay Packers lost to the Seattle Seahawks not because of a bad call at the end of the game, but because they didn’t play particularly well.

When University of Michigan football recruit Logan Tuley-Tillman posted the above picture on his Twitter feed he sparked a fire that burned more than just a piece of paper. The Buckeyes didn’t take too kindly to the perceived disrespect, and the Wolverines rallied around a player that is bringing back some nastiness to a program that is in dire need of just that.

My dad is a Michigan man, so I was raised a fan of the program, and I still am. I love this, and I can’t wait for Tuley-Tillman to quiet the Buckeyes, who apparently forgot he was good enough for them, until this small fire, by berating the young man with slanderous and threatening tweets and more.

92 days until college football.

Go Blue!

Pavel Datsyuk’s trickeration late in the third period lead to the game winning goal by Tomas Holmstrom. The man is a magician on the ice, and he proved that again today with three assists, including the aforementioned game winner. Also, I hope Nicklas Lidström never retires. The Detroit Red Wings have eschewed elimination once more in their series against the San Jose Sharks who were up 3-0, but now return to Detroit up only 3-2. I’m very confident that if the Wings can win game six and head back to the Shark Tank that they will move on to take on the winner of the Vancouver Canucks vs Nashville Predators series. Oh, how I love the Stanley Cup Playoffs!

The Detroit Red Wings were facing a sweep at the hands of the San Jose Sharks for the second year in a row, and for the second time staved off elimination to force game five. They still have a lot of work ahead of them if they are to complete the comeback, but the Wings are a team that can do anything (though I think they need to play better than they did tonight to do it). Above is the game winner netted by the Center that sealed the win with only 1:27 left in the game.

This is yesterday’s picture, but the big game is today. Real Salt Lake plays the second leg at home against Monterrey tonight at 8pm MDT. If you’re going to the game, let me know, and if you’re watching from home look for me in Section 6 in the southeast corner of the stadium.

Bad things happen to trophies all the time, but they generally aren’t caught on camera and broadcast to the world. I can’t imagine what kind of news story it were to happen to the Stanley Cup.

According to this article on Fanster, written by friend Vince Marotta, ASU (my alma mater) will be making some changes to their sports uniforms. Possibly getting rid of Sparky, the ASU mascot, and replacing him with a triton logo. Sun Devil Sports Now tweeted “Fear the Fork!” which helps to support the Fanster article. That same tweet states that “changes are coming next week.” So we should know soon what is going on with the Sun Devils and what these changes are exactly.

I’m not entirely sure how long the Seattle Mariners have been making these hilarious commercials, but it has been many years. Each year during Spring Training the team films a handfull of comical, even snarky, commercials that air in the Northwest, and it seems as if every team in the league has followed suit. The above is, in my opinion, the funniest of the 2011 crop, but there are many laughs to be had watching the others as well.

It’s not often a GM gets in front of the camera to let the fans know that he has a plan, and that it is in place. I like what Jack Zduriencik has done thus far; with only a few head scratchers. The future of Mariners baseball is bright. And it’s nice to see Z put his own face out there to tell us the same.

Back in January the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, wrote an open-letter to NFL fans saying the owners would do everything they could to get a deal done. Except, apparently, open their books for the NFL Players Association. When a business owner that already takes a billion dollars off the top before giving you a dime tells you to “trust me” and gives no reason for you to do so, you’re not very inclined to trust them. The NFLPA filed to decertify yesterday as the negotiations broke down and the CBA expired. This is another open-letter to fans from the NFL Commissioner. He says a lot of nice things, but completely redirects blame onto the players without ever mentioning that they never met the players’ biggest demand: opening the books.

Dear NFL Fan,

When I wrote to you last on behalf of the NFL, we promised you that we would work tirelessly to find a collectively bargained solution to our differences with the players’ union. Subsequent to that letter to you, we agreed that the fastest way to a fair agreement was for everyone to work together through a mediation process. For the last three weeks I have personally attended every session of mediation, which is a process our clubs sincerely believe in.

Unfortunately, I have to tell you that earlier today the players’ union walked away from mediation and collective bargaining and has initiated litigation against the clubs. In an effort to get a fair agreement now, our clubs offered a deal today that, among other things, was designed to have no adverse financial impact on veteran players in the early years, and would have met the players’ financial demands in the latter years of the agreement.

The proposal we made included an offer to narrow the player compensation gap that existed in the negotiations by splitting the difference; guarantee a reallocation of savings from first-round rookies to veterans and retirees without negatively affecting compensation for rounds 2-7; no compensation reduction for veterans; implement new year-round health and safety rules; retain the current 16-4 season format for at least two years with any subsequent changes subject to the approval of the league and union; and establish a new legacy fund for retired players ($82 million contributed by the owners over the next two years).

It was a deal that offered compromise, and would have ensured the well-being of our players and guaranteed the long-term future for the fans of the great game we all love so much. It was a deal where everyone would prosper.

We remain committed to collective bargaining and the federal mediation process until an agreement is reached, and call on the union to return to negotiations immediately. NFL players, clubs, and fans want an agreement. The only place it can be reached is at the bargaining table.

While we are disappointed with the union’s actions, we remain steadfastly committed to reaching an agreement that serves the best interest of NFL players, clubs and fans, and thank you for your continued support of our league. First and foremost it is your passion for the game that drives us all, and we will not lose sight of this as we continue to work for a deal that works for everyone.

Yours,

Roger Goodell
