Granted, I'm not sure what the proper protocol is here, but I can't imagine that tents are recommended shelter for tornadoes. Even worse news happened when it was confirmed that a couple of Cowboys staffers were injured when the team's hot-air balloon was tossed around with the tornado-like conditions.
And notice Jerry Jones was at the Kentucky Derby, he wasn't anywhere near Valley Ranch.
The most amazing scene, if you were watching the video, was the Cowboys players who were taking off their helmets. Yes, falling debris is often the best time to remove your protective headgear.
Coach Dave Campo was admirable in taking charge during the situation. And looking back at the tape, it's going to be hard to cut the players who were really diligent in looking for trapped players. There were two major injuries, thankfully it wasn't worse.
- Jack Kemp has passes away. Politics aside, he had one of the true underdog stories in the NFL.
- Former Bears receiver Willie Gault is still as fast as ever at age 48. Don't let the Raiders know, he could be invited to training camp.
- The Jets still won't commit to Mark Sanchez just yet. Yeah, because they moved up in the draft to have him sit behind Kellen Clemens.
- David Hasselhoff was rushed to the hospital after passing out with a blood-alcohol content of .39. How is that even possible? I mean, without being at the ShoreHouse.
- The Washington Capitals have a networking (dating) site. Check out this broad's favorite book.
Excuse my ignorance, but is the UFC still around? It was popular for a while, but now has seemed to have faded out like the Swine Flu.
And for those of you who thought that UFC/MMA was going to overtake boxing in popularity, well, Manny Pacquiao destroyed that notion with a swift knockout on Saturday night. Now, you can complain that the fight only took two rounds, but those six minutes were more entertaining than any UFC/MMA fight that I've ever seen.
Honestly, boxing is a sport where knocks are an unfortunate consequence. Pacquiao's grace and precision -- going up in weight to fight a bigger man -- makes the UFC/MMA look like a bunch of drunken rednecks fighting in a trailer park.
Well, even more so than usual.
So all of you predicting the demise of boxing, yeah, go back to your jobs at the CDC. Boxing is fine. And realize that Ricky Hatton wasn't just some tomato can. Can't wait for him to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr.
