Sports Talk

Cutler Wants Out
Broncos QB Jay Cutler wants to be traded out of Denver because his feelings we hurt when the trade talks were entertained by the Broncos, a trade that would’ve sent Matt Cassel to Denver. The trade would’ve have reunited Matt Cassel with new Broncos Head Coach Josh McDaniels, who was the offensive coordinator in New England. The Buccaneers’ name has came up a few times about teams that are interested in Cutler. I for one, would like Jay Cutler to come to Tampa, but for what price, I’m not sure. Cutler is a good quarterback, but not great, yet. He really hasn’t done anything in Denver, in a weak division. He was the quarterback that dropped the ball -with no contact from anyone- that led to referee Ed Hoculi’s “mishap”. Anything is better than Garcia though, who was the Trent Dilfer of this generation. As long as the Bucs get a quarterback who isn’t mind-numbing to watch, they should be fine

World Baseball Classic
The World Baseball Classic has come down to it’s Final Four now, USA, Venzuela, Japan, and Korea will all play in Los Angeles to determine the champion. This year, the Classic has taken heat from baseball fans and sports personalities in the United States because the event really is meaning-less to Americans. Were just standing around waiting for our team’s Opening Day and wondering why MLB’s top players are getting injured left and right in this event. But the Classic means a whole lot more to these other countries that get to compete in it. If a team like Korea or Venezuela wins the World Baseball Classic, it would be like that country would embrace their team like they just won the Super Bowl. I like the Classic, I like the idea, but I hate the planning of the event. I really think that they should start it during the end of the MLB Playoffs.

A-Rod Caught Kissing……A-Rod
I don’t know if you’ve seen the recent images of Alex Rodriguez standing in front of a large mirror, kissing the mirror, making it look like a man was kissing another man to the naked eye, but A-Rod is starting to creep me out. First of all, I don’t know of he’s on steroids now or not, but in the photos he look jacked up man! Second of all, if I were him, I would have a nice tall glass of shut the f**k up, stay out of the media spotlight, not take controversial photos, and stay in my big house and smell my cash.

Stallworth In Trouble
The Cleveland Browns’ Donte Stallworth, a former New Orleans Saints’ Wide Receiver who used to pester the Buccaneers’ secondary 2 times a year, was arrested for an accident where a pedestrian was killed by the vehicle Stallworth was driving. Stallworth was allegedly drinking and driving during the accident and has completely shot his pro-football career in the ass. If you thought Michael Vick’s career was over for killing dogs, imagine the sentence a drunk driver would get when killing a person.

Joey Galloway Joins Patriots
The New England Patriots have signed former Bucs’ WR Joey Galloway adding to their list of veteran star players signed this off-season. RB Fred Taylor, and DE Julian Peterson also signed with the Patriots. Galloway will most likely add to another list, The former Buccaneers players that won a Super Bowl after leaving Tampa list.
