NFL Unbeatens
In the fifth week of regular season play, the Denver Broncos, and the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints (Who are 4-0 because of their Bye Week last Sunday), and the Minnesota Vikings are the only teams that remain undefeated so far this year. The Broncos, who are having a spectacular season this year under new head coach Josh McDaniels just defeated the New England Patriots, the team that McDaniels coached for last year. The Saints are entering into a dogfight with the Falcons for the NFC South Division crown. The Vikings are living a dream season behind Brett Favre and the Giants are dominating every team they play this year, but they meet the Saints this Sunday and that should be the game of the week.

Goodbye, Lou!
Wrestler Captain Lou Albano has died at age 76 of natural causes early Wednesday morning. Lou was a good wrestler, but known more for his managing skills of up and coming wrestlers. Albano’s career was mostly overshadowed by Hulk Hogan in the WWF/WWE. Lou also starred in Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” video as Lauper’s mean father.

Tyson On Oprah?
Former Championship Boxer and all-around nut bag Mike Tyson will reunite with Evander Holyfield on Oprah Friday morning to discuss their boxing match that turned into a circus after the first round. For those who don’t remember, Mike Tyson bit Evander Holyfield’s ear twice and on the second time bit a piece off and spit it onto the first row of the crowd who paid good money to watch a boxer fight a bitch. Have fun watching that one if you get a chance.

Roger Goodell on Limbaugh
In 2003, Rush Limbaugh made a comment that Eagles’ Quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed in the NFL. Now he wants a stake in the St. Louis Rams. At least seven different NFL players spoke out against Rush this past week and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was cornered into commenting about the situation Tuesday when he was giving a press conference. Goodell said he wouldn’t want to see those kind of comments from someone in a responsible position in the NFL, also that he talks to NFL players a lot and knows the consensus of most of the players on the issue. But really, the Rams are in trouble, and need a bail out. And these comments were roughly seven years ago. Plus, since then, McNabb has proven to be Philadelphia’s Romo. But none of that matters anymore anyway. Limbaugh will not be purchasing part of the Rams, after a private firm handling the sale of the Rams blocked Limbaugh out. Nobody questioned Jessie Jackson or Al Sharpton for crucifying the Duke Lacrosse players who were cleared of all of the rape charges brought against them because the girl was lying. But talking about that is not P.C. right?
