Two NFL-related things to share with you during the Baltimore Ravens’ bye week.

One-I’m probably going to have to dump Denver Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno from my fantasy team after seeing this video of him FALLING OFF AN EXERCISE BIKE?!?

Two-Did anyone know Darren Sharper once dated a young lady named Dollicia Bryan? Does that have anything REALLY to do with the NFL? No…but it gives me a great excuse to post a picture of the young lady…


I’m sure you understand.

The Red River Rivalry means its Texas State Fair time. The good news about that? The Big Tex Choice Awards! Let’s get fried!

Deep Fried Bubblegum won the award for “Most Creative”…


And the winner of “Best Taste” was “Buffalo Chicken in a flapjack”…


Amongst the “losers”? Fried pineapple upside down cake…


Fried salsa with queso…


And a “walking taco”…a taco salad in a Doritos bag…


I have to move to the Lone Star State.

2. NHL: Carolina Hurricanes @ Washington Capitals (Saturday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet), Tampa Bay Lightning @ Washington Capitals (Monday 7pm from Verizon Center live on Comcast SportsNet/VERSUS)

And so you know, the Phoenix Coyotes open their season Saturday night in San Jose against the Sharks. Let’s go Desert Dogs!!!

I’ll be at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood in Dundalk watching the fights Saturday night. I’ve had a few enjoyable dishes there in recent weeks, including the “Crabby Chicken Sandwich”…

By the way-I’ll take Edgar and Jose Aldo in the fights.
