So yesterday we shared how there was talks of the Philadelphia Eagles being interested in making Brett Favre backup to Mike Vick and how Vick tweeted his approval of the idea, although he later went to delete the tweet.
When I posted the story yesterday, Twitter went into a comical uproar and it appeared as though many people would like Bret to mean it when he says he’s “retired”.
Eagle fans, what do you think? Would you like Brett to join Vick and the Eagles? We clearly see the fan’s vote in this picture.
Like it or not it is fun to talk about Brett Favre coming out of retirement. It has become an annual event like Woodstock.
Despite his outlandish antics over the past years, now Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman has had his jersey retired in Detroit, where he won 2 out of his five Championship titles with the Pistons. Rodman claims he doesn’t deserve to have his jersey retired. What do you think?
When told of the honor Rodman responded, “I thought it was an April Fools’ joke when they called me about it the first time,” Rodman said. “I was shocked. I don’t think I should have my jersey retired because I was probably the fifth most important guy on those teams.” Unlike most players, Rodman doesn’t receive his recognition for scoring, but moreso his contribution to defense and ability to snag boards. From 1991 until his retirement in 2000, Rodman never averaged fewer than 11.3 rebounds per game in any season. Rodman was the reason the Pistons were the team they were in the late 80’s early 90’s.
The mens basketball team of Kentucy had a surprise awaiting them in front of the locker room after their unsuspecting win over UNC to advance to the NCAA Final Four. Aside being a well known as a rapper and Label owner, Jay Z also is a partial owner of the NBA Franchise in New Jersey. The issue at hand is that NBA personel are not allowed to have contact with college players before they enter the draft. Jay Z could possibly be hit with a fine. The NBA cites a previous case where back in 2007 Celtics GM Danny Ainge sat with Kevin Durant’s mom during the Big 12 Tournament. Ainge was later fined $30,000. There’s also a video of the excitement the boys had when greeted by Mr. Jay Z.
