AJ McCarron Leading Bengals, Cueto To Giants, Rondo Gay Slur


AJ McCarronIn the NFL, Cincinnati Bengals fans were devastated after watching their star quarterback Andy Dalton go down with a thumb injury.  Early reports had him “out for the season”.  The Bengals were thinking this was just their typical bad luck.  It has been as been reported that Dalton does not need surgery and could actually be ready to play again in time for the playoffs.  The question is… can back-up QB AJ McCarron get the Bengals the wins they need to get a first round bye.  The Bengals are hoping they at least get a home playoff game.




Kansas City Royals pitcher Johnny Cueto appears to be the latest “gun for hire” in the league.   After winning the World Series with the Royals, Cueto’s services are now for sale, and the San Francisco Giants came calling.   Cueto signed a 6-year $130 million contract with the team. With Cueto joining a staff that already includes stars Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner, the Giants could be very tough to stop.



Finally, in the NBA, the Sacramento Kings Rajon Rondo is in hot water after using a gay slur towards referee Bill Kennedy.  Rondo was suspended for a game but then after the incident, Kennedy revealed he is gay. Kennedy told Yahoo,  “I am proud to be an NBA referee and I am proud to be a gay man.” After issues with both Kobe Bryant and Joakim Noah in the past, the NBA is trying to rid themselves of  any homophobia and many think Rondo’s punishment should have been more severe.
