Does Reggie Bush Hate Money?

You seriously have to ask the question. Reggie Bush, in recent weeks has somehow talked his way out of being the top overall draft pick and been involved in a rent scandal because of his parents (though probably not his fault). Bush appeared in a celebrity basketball game in Los Angeles on Saturday.

A celebrity basketball game seems pretty harmless, right? Former New England running back Robert Edwards probably thought the same thing when he participated in a beach flag-football during Pro Bowl week following his rookie season. Edwards, as you will remember, ended his career with a knee injury thanks to his participation in this meaningless game. Maybe Reggie should think about signing a contract before his next adventure... jumping Snake River on a motorcycle.

And in true NFL style, he'll make that jump sans a helmet.

Hey, we still have a message board. It's not like you are going to get any work done today.

Didn't Robert Edwards blow out his achilles tendon, not his knee in that beach football game?

Edwards ripped his ACL, MCL, PCLs, and partially tore is LCL. He also suffered a severed artery and a stretched nerve. But hey Reggie, knock yourself out.

good link back to robert edwards, adam. and talking himself out of the top-overall pick sounds like a dead-on description of what will likely be Houston's flounder.
