Tony Romo is the most dad DJ ever

Duron Harmon Youth Jersey
Over the past couple of months, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo retired from the NFL and joined CBS as a lead game analyst. Romo has been staying busy since, and now he can add playing DJ to his list of fun post-retirement activities after spinning some tunes at a charity event in Dallas on Sunday.

Romo, also known as DJ 9, had a playlist for the event that was very 37-year-old dad of him: Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer, Guns n’ Roses’ Sweet Child of Mine, Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da by the Beatles, and Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield, according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News.

Will Sutton Youth Jersey Earlier in the week, Aguayo told PewterReport.com he was motivated by the competition.

I look at it like playing golf, Aguayo said. When you go out there playing by yourself you are playing to shoot par or shoot your best, but when you have someone else out there it’s like, Well he hit a good shot so I want to hit a good shot.’

Augayo was the best kicker in college football during his days at Florida State, making 267 of his 276 kicks in three years. The Buccaneers would like to see him return to that form, and will hope having Folk over his shoulder will be the right kick to get Aguayo back to his old self.

The best part about this competition is that we’ll get to watch it for ourselves, since the Buccaneers will be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks.

NFL patriarch Clay Matthews Sr. dead at 88

Clay Matthews Sr., who started a lineage of players in the NFL stretching back to his playing days in the 1950s, died Thursday in Mount Pleasant, S.C., at the age of 88.

Matthews — patriarch of what has been called the first family of the NFL — was the father of Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews and former Pro Bowler Clay Matthews Jr., as well as the grandfather of three current players, including Packers linebacker Clay Matthews III.

Authentic Youth Duke Johnson Jersey After getting drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 25th round of the 1949 NFL Draft, Matthews did not play until 1950, when he signed with the 49ers.

Authentic Youth Mitch Moreland Jersey Chass has for several years now made his Hall of Fame vote more about grandstanding and being too cool for school than about a genuine attempt to honor some of the best baseball players of all time. He wants us to notice his outrageousness. He wants it to be about him.

If Chass and his ilk are such a problem, why allow the problem to exist? This doesn’t seem complicated. It isn’t the Electoral College. It seems like an easily fixable situation. Or am I missing something?

Hall of Fame voting is often a point of contention among fans and media types for various reasons. In recent years, crowded ballots have sparked calls to expanded the maximum number of votes allowed per ballot from 10 to 12, or perhaps even allow unlimited votes. While either of those would certainly help clear logjams and allow all worthy candidates a better shot at induction, neither has gained much momentum.

Dalvin Cook slips to Vikings, and response now falls on his shoulders

Why did Dalvin Cook fall to the Vikings?

That’s not a simple question. In another draft, the fact that Cook fell to the second round and the Vikings traded up to get him with the No. 41 pick wouldn’t have been that big of a deal. Cook, however, was a projected first-round pick who was taken 33 picks behind Christian McCaffrey at No. 8 overall.

How can a running back who averaged 6.5 yards per carry through a productive career at Florida State that somehow got more prolific with each season fall that far?

The Bills decided they already had their man in place. If they find out that they don’t, they have an extra first-rounder next year.

And they still got someone at 27th overall who helps them enormously: Tre’Davious White, the LSU cornerback who has a chance to fill the hole created by the departure of Stephon Gilmore.

Both teams can feel great about the deal. Both teams should avoid the dragging the Bears are taking over the big trade that preceded the Bills’. The Bills, in fact, should feel like they won, in this draft and the next.

Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut: Melifonwu has incredible length at 6-4, 219 and is an athletic, rangy safety with good speed and instincts. He has very good ball skills and can be used as a matchup piece against tight ends or tall receivers. He’s also a solid tackler, making 118 stops to go with four interceptions last season, and created a nice buzz heading into the draft.

Free speech does not mean freedom from consequences

The light isn’t going to come on over the heads of the NFL team executives who already have predicted that Kaepernick is never going to be signed, because they can’t stand him, want no part of him, don’t care if he’s better than at least half the available quarterbacks, or that they’re afraid of their fan base and of the sitting president getting frisky about it on Twitter.

Limited Womens Ondrej Pavelec Jersey (That president got frisky in a campaign rally speech this week, instead of on Twitter. Same difference. That president didn’t find Elway or his letter to be worth mentioning, for what that’s worth.)

To repeat: Free speech does not mean freedom from consequences. Kaepernick has been taught that. But Elway has not. Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who last week didn’t hesitate to hitch a ride on Air Force One, has not.

On the other hand, Kraft’s quarterback, Tom Brady, has labored mightily to avoid the potential pitfalls of a political endorsement. Brady already has learned the hard way that royalty as a player still makes him a pawn compared to his bosses.

Morris had the most wins, but Stieb had the lower ERA and he wasn’t even close to me, I think.

To me, ERA is indicative of who’s better, Stieb said.

Other statistics attest to this as well. Stieb had the highest Wins Above Replacement among pitchers for the ‘80s, by a wide margin at 48.6, while Morris ranked 12th at 30.4.
Limited Womens Omer Asik Jersey
In case anyone’s wondering, Stieb’s heard of WAR.

Pat Hentgen told me years ago, he goes, ‘Man, you know how they’re using that WAR a lot, that stat?’ I go, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘They use that like crazy now to gauge how good someone really is.’ He goes, ‘If they looked at that when you were playing, you would have won four Cy Young Awards in a row,’ Stieb said, noting it would have been 1982 through 1985 when he led for WAR three consecutive years and finished second the fourth.

Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl jerseys found, heading back to Patriots

Jerseygate has come to a close.

Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey has been found and is on its way back to Patriots facilities, Fox Sports first reported Monday.

The FBI was involved, per Fox Sports, because the item was found on foreign soil.

Houston police said they considered the theft a felony because the jersey could have gone for at least $500,000 at a sports memorabilia auction.
Gerry Cheevers Authentic Jersey
Brady, after winning Super Bowl MVP for leading the Patriots on an improbable comeback to beat the Falcons, always seemed optimistic his jersey would find its way back. The quarterback issued a statement later Monday thanking law enforcement and promising to make something very positive come from this experience.

I am happy my jerseys from SB 49 and SB 51 have been recovered and I want to thank all of the law enforcement agencies involved, Brady wrote, via agent Don Yee. I know they worked hard on this case — and it is very much appreciated. Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive from this experience.

Danny Amendola Mens Jersey The man believed to take part in these criminal activities is Mauricio Ortega, a former executive of Diario La Prensa, a newspaper in Honduras. The paper reportedly knew he was the culprit a few days ago, and was fired.

The paper released a brief tweet on the matter in Spanish, which rougly translated reads, We are informed that the one involved in the case of the stolen [Tom Brady] jerseys is the exdirector of [La Prensa].

Nos informan que el involucrado en el caso de los jersey′s robados de #TomBrady es el exdirector de @laprensaoem en breve un comunicado.

Giants ace Madison Bumgarner could miss two months after dirt bike crash

His start last Wednesday against Pawtucket was a great picture of where he is in his development. He showed that power arm often, sitting in the mid-90s and using that fastball to get a couple of strikeouts, swinging and looking. And that curveball made several PawSox players look downright silly, chasing balls that sharply dove into the dirt, or just standing there helpless, frozen by the breaking action on the baseball.

As with the other potential aces in Charlotte, specific results aren’t the most important thing at the moment. It’s more about getting prepared for when the times comes.

Just consistency with my delivery, Giolito told SN. I want to make sure I repeat everything well and then make sure I can attack hitters, keep the ball down.

Madison Bumgarner learned Thursday that riding a dirt bike can lead to bad things.
Elite Kids Jamize Olawale Jersey
The San Francisco Giants ace sprained the AC joint in his left shoulder and suffered bruised ribs in a dirt bike crash on the team’s off day Thursday, the team announced. He has been placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Bumgarner is out of the hospital, currently resting at the team hotel in Denver, and will be re-evaluated next week regarding a possible return date. Fox Sports reported he is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

The left-hander is a disappointing 0-3 this season despite registering an impressive 3.00 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 27 innings through his first four starts this season.

This is Bumgarner’s first trip to the disabled list in his nine-year major league career. The Giants called up right-hander Chris Stratton from Triple-A to replace him on the roster.

Cardinals release Daryl Washington after NFL reinstatement

Daryl Washington is allowed to play in the NFL again after being suspended for the last three seasons, but he will have to find a new team.

The Cardinals released the former Pro Bowl linebacker Thursday, the organization announced.

The bruising Pitt running back, only 16 months removed from a cancer diagnosis, was drafted by the Steelers in the third round (105th overall) of the NFL Draft Friday night, another milestone in Conner’s incredible journey.

The 2014 ACC Player of the Year was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma during Thanksgiving of 2015. Despite undergoing intense chemotherapy, Conner continued to practice, and returned to field week one of the 2016 season. He finished the season strong, scoring a key touchdown in Pitt’s upset victory over No. 1 Clemson and ending the year with over 1092 yards and 20 total touchdowns.

Conner, an Erie, Penn. native, finished his career with 3733 rushing yards, and is the all-time ACC leader in touchdowns with 55.

The moment Conner received the call from the 412 area code is pretty breathtaking.

There was a bit more levity on Mike Tomlin’s side of things, who joked that the Steelers wouldn’t reimburse Conner for his gas mileage driving from Erie to Pittsburgh.

Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi said Conner’s selection feels like a Hollywood movie. After all, this is a guy that, just over a year ago, received some of the worst news a human can possibly get.

Christian McCaffrey, Solomon Thomas can’t use NFL facilities until Stanford’s spring quarter ends

Stanford’s commencement ceremonies take place on June 18, which means first-round NFL Draft picks Christian McCaffrey and Solomon Thomas are not allowed to use their respective teams’ facilities until mid-June.

The 49ers drafted Thomas third overall and the Panthers selected McCaffrey eighth, but an NFL rule prevents rookies from joining offseason workouts until their schools’ academic years have ended.

Christian McCaffrey told us he cannot go into the Panthers facility until mid-June when Stanford semester ends.

DeMarcus retired and Tony hasn’t, Jones said, via the team’s website.

Romo, of course, has taken pains not to use the R-word even though he has taken a job as an NFL game analyst for CBS. That has led plenty of people to conclude he would return to the field under the right circumstances 鈥?presumably, a significant injury to Dak Prescott 鈥?and Jones won’t quell that speculation by continuing to put off the appropriate retirement festivities.

Mike Richter Kids Jersey I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves at all on what we might do (to honor Romo), Jones said. At this juncture there has been, just by the nature of how Tony’s career has evolved at this point over the past year, it’s had a lot of recognition. We will look to the future on timing as to when we might have some more recognition.鈥

Wall’s post may have been in response to a similar image Schroder posted on Instagram in 2015, where he celebrated a second-round elimination of the Wizards.

The Wizards beat the Hawks in Game 6, 115-99, and Wall torched Schroder in the deciding game for 42 points on 16-of-25 shooting, including 19 in the fourth quarter. Schroder also scored 26 points on 8-of-18 shooting, but the Hawks were outscored by 19 when Wall was on the court.

It was the end to a feud that began in 2015, where Wall, who had an injured wrist, swears he heard Schroder telling teammates to swipe down on his hurt hand. Schroder denies the allegation.

Butler’s 14 points on 7-of-21 shooting and game-worst minus-27 might undersell just how good he was for Chicago’s first two games, where the Bulls took a surprising two game lead over the Eastern Conference’s top seed. It was the first time a No. 1 seed dropped the first two games to a No. 8 seed since 1993, but in that series, the Phoenix Suns actually ending up moving on, beating the Los Angeles Lakers. Boston is hoping to do the same, and its 104-87 win on Friday put the Celtics closer to that goal.

There’s a number of subplots you can point to, and Rajon Rondo’s absence was no doubt a big one. But the Bulls live and die with Butler, and the absence of his normal impact swung the game. After eight assists in Game 2, he recorded none in Game 3. Chicago’s offense languished overall.

Butler can bounce back, and Sunday’s second game in Chicago seems like a perfect time to do just that. But if he doesn’t, the outcome may fall apart like this.

The Warriors picked up right where they left off against the Jazz

The Golden State Warriors were as good as we expected them to be on Tuesday. The presumptive favorites for the 2017 championship haven’t proven they’re simply better than everyone, but they have certainly been better than everyone they’ve had a chance to play so far. The rest may — or will — come in time.

Kids Cobi Hamilton Jersey In Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz, the Warriors often only lead by about 10 points and still felt like they controlled the game for 48 minutes. They ended up with a 106-94 win thanks to Stephen Curry’s 22 points on 11 shots and the rest of the starters each pitching in double digits. On their home court, freshly rested off a series that went over four games, the Warriors put on a performance all night. It was hard to miss.

The Hawks got huge games from Jose Calderon, Dwight Howard, and Kent Bazemore. Yes, we said Jose Calderon. He was a +26 in his eight first half minutes as the Hawks took control of the game. He finished with 10 points, five assists, and a +29 on the game.
Kids Khiry Robinson Jersey
Dwight Howard showed flashes of his old self and finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds. He was a presence of the defensive end as well.

With the Hawks role players stepping up, it was their rock, Paul Millsap pulling them through. The defining moment of the game was when Millsap grabbed this rebound late in the game with five Wizards players surrounding. He grabbed the board on one leg, put the shot back up and completed the three-point play.

The Wizards will have to prove they can show up when it matters and finish this Hawks team off quickly if they want to prove they are a top team in the Eastern Conference.
