Monday = Funday

A big man (OL Leonard Davis) gets a big deal (7-years, $49-million) from the Cowboys.

Get to know Leonard Davis at his very own website.

As I searched for stuff on Leonard Davis, I found a familiar face has joined the Cardinals staff: former Cowboy and Ticket pre-game show host Richie Anderson.
Other free agency news over the weekend:

A sad day for Bob as Ahman Green chooses Houston over Green Bay.

The Pats upgrade their dee with the addition of linebacker Adalius Thomas.

The wackiest story of the weekend: Tampa Bay signs Jeff Garcia, trades with Denver for Jake Plummer, who says he'd rather retire than change teams. In the words of the 'Afternoon Cloud': he sucks.


Ugly loss for the Stars Sunday as they get whipped by Bill Guerin and the Sharks.


Mavericks off until Tuesday when they host New Jersey. Dallas now with a franchise-best 15-game winning streak following Saturday's win over's another interesting Mavs stat, thanks to Elias Sports Bureau:

• The Mavericks have won 50 of their last 55 games after starting the season 0-4. They are only the second team in NBA history to win 50 of 55 games within one season: the 1995-96 Bulls also won 50 of 55 games at one point. (By the way, no team in the history of either Major League Baseball or the NHL has ever won 50-of-55 in one season, either.)

Avery says "Thanks, but no thanks" to Scottie Pippen.


Sammy homers, Rangers blank Royals in Surprise...


The Desperados cruise in their season opener in New York...

...but the same apparently
can't be said for ABC/ESPN.

Some interesting Desperados notes from Elias:

• The Dallas Desperados opened their season with a 60-7 win over the New York Dragons. That was by far the largest margin of victory in a season opener in the 21-year history of the AFL. The previous high was 40 points by the San Jose SaberCats over the Houston Thunderbears in 2000 (54-14); and the Tampa Bay Storm over the Carolina Cobras in 2003 (60-20).

• The Desperados' victory sort of figured. They beat the Dragons by scores of 46-28 and 82-38 last season. The combined 62-point differential for the season was the largest between any two AFL teams over the last five seasons (2002-06).



For those of you who haven't seen last week's performance by Chuck Liddell on Good Morning Texas...

Since I am a fan of Kansas State, I will use this opportunity to show highlights of their top basketball recruit coming in next year, Michael Beasley...this guy might have a little game...


Mexican Jerry Springer Show...try to avoid looking at the fat guy in the hot tub...

Thanks for gracing us with your presence this morning Ty. I know this new blogging schedule must be like totally confusing for ya.

Durant wins big 12 player of the year, Gillespe with coach of the year honors. Both well deserved. Cant wait for the third installment of this battle this weekend if both teams take care of business. Why is this tourney not in Dallas every year.

Also cant wait for a hopeful rematch between Dook and North Carolina in the ACC tourney after the vicious elbow to Hansbroughs nose. You could tell he wanted to go after that kid.
It dont get no better than college basketball in March.

Bucks a critic is gay.

Come on, Fake Sturm...Oklahoma City is a great place for the Big 12 tournament. We need something other than the revolving gun show/banjo exposition circuit to bring people to our kick ass downtown.
