LOOK OUT FOR OUR NEW MULTIMEDIA WEB SITE! IN THE MEANTIME, ENJOY OUR WATERCOOLER CHATS: Viking QB Benched, Rays still Shining

Football

Ooooo, tough luck for 2nd Year Minnesota Vikings QB, Tarvaris Jackson, as the head coach Brad Childress decided to bench home going forward in favor of LONG-TIME veteran, Gus Frerotte. Before the season started, the Vikings were predicted to reach at least the NFC playoffs. The reasons:  Their solid defense, and stellar running game.  The only thing missing was a QB to lead it all and give them an efficient passing game.   Vikings coach Childress said Tarvaris Jackson looked amazing in the pre-season and training camp, giving him full confidence going forward.  However, their 0-2 start, and poor passing numbers from Jackson say otherwise.  Since the Vikings, armed with superstar RB Adrian Peterson, have a legitimate shot at a championship season, the Viking organization just couldn’t take the risk developing a QB.

Baseball

And the Tampa Bay Devil Rays continued their win streak, crushing the Boston Red Sox 10-3.  This extends their lead in the incredibly tough AL East to two full games.  It seems like a small margin, but at this point in the season, every single game matters.

Basketball

NBA

In the NBA, Gilbert Arenas, the Wizards all-star Point Guard, will be out until January recovering from knee surgery.  Normally, this wouldn’t be a huge headline, but the Wizards just gave Arenas a GIGANTIC contract, worth around $114 Million Dollars.  So when you hear that $114 Million dollars needs knee surgery and recovery time — it’s pretty embarrassing news for a general manager.

For your spoonful of controversy, Dallas Maverics Shooting-Guard, Josh Howard, got himself into some hot water (and the media spotlight).  He’s seen on video ‘disrespecting the National Anthem’, saying to the camera ‘I don’t celebrate that’.  For your viewing pleasure, click here.
