Here are some morsels as you remember not to forget to defrost the turkey:
• The NFL will broadcast next week’s Chargers-Raiders game live in 3-D at theaters in L.A., New York and Boston. League officials are asking Al Davis to skip the game to avoid an NC-17 rating. Come on, have you seen what Al looks like in 3-D? Hide the children!
• The Cowboys say that despite the tough economy, they have sold 85% of the season tickets for their new stadium. In fact that’s all they need, since the rest of the seats will be reserved for Pacman’s bodyguards.
• Michael Vick pled guilty this morning to a state dogfighting charge in Virginia, which could make him eligible for an early release from jail. Well, that’s great news for the struggling, QB-desperate Falcons. Wait, what?
• Barry Bonds has landed an endorsement deal for a company that specializes in high-powered hunting rifles. Well, it’s nice to see Barry’s portfolio adding the Second Amendment to the Fifth.
• The Pirates have signed two pitchers who were contestants on a reality show in India that have never played baseball. In a related story, the Pirates will redouble efforts to outsource their victories.
• The trade between the Knicks and Clippers is on hold after New York had some concerns with the physical given to Cuttino Mobley. Apparently doctors found that Mobley isn’t really LeBron James, the guy Knicks fans seem to think they traded for.
• A 14-year-old Indiana girl has filed a lawsuit in order to play high school baseball. Fortunately, the current ban won’t keep her from signing her Pirates deal.
