WATERCOOLER CHAT: BRAUN LOSE MVP, BRADY MOVED ON, JAY-Z VIOLATES NCAA RULES

BASEBALL

The Ryan Braun drama continues.  Braun was suspended the remainder of the season for using performance-enhancing drugs, but now the problems are getting even worse for Braun.  A local convenience store chain in Milwaukee has dropped Braun as their endorser.  The guy is basically persona non grata in Wisconsin right now.  To make matters worse, there was a big race for the NL MVP in 2011 between Braun and the Dodgers Matt Kemp.  Tuesday, Kemp came out and said that the Braun should retroactively lose his MVP, as he was most likely cheating during that time.  It will be interesting to see what Braun’s future holds, but, right now, it’s not looking bright.

FOOTBALL

And in the NFL, the media finally got to the Patriots’ Tom Brady about his feelings regarding former tight end Aaron Hernandez.  Hernandez was one of Brady’s favorite targets for two seasons, and it looked like the tight end of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez was going to last for many years to come.  But, as everyone knows, Hernandez is about to go on trial for murder, and the media wanted to hear what Tom Brady thought about it.  Brady responded by simply saying that he has “moved on”.  That he has learned a lot about mental toughness in his 13 year career, and that his job is to play quarterback to the best of his ability.
Finally, in college football, some more violations may be afoot, and this time it’s one of the biggest rappers in the world.  As most know, Jay-Z has recently started his own sports agency.  He has been in contact with several of the NBA rookies, some established NBA stars, and even a WNBA star.  Now, it’s reported that Jay-Z may have reached out to South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney.   Clowney is a beast of a player, and likely to be one of the top picks in next year’s draft.  And it’s quite likely that he will have a very successful NFL career, as his athleticism is truly a marvel to watch. However, speaking with agents is a violation for NCAA students.  You can’t do that until you have declared for the draft.  If Jay-Z and Clowney were in contact, that could mean penalties for the Gamecocks organization.
