Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for June 26, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: June 26, 2012
At last, the doughiest and blandest of all the snack foods has found its savior. Just avoid any kind of spicy mustard – that’s the devil’s condiment.
Sticking with pretzel jokes for a moment, Tim Tebow showed his saltier side yesterday when he took some gentle potshots at former colleague in suckiness Brady Quinn for Quinn’s persistent glossing of his alma mater Notre Dame. A more annoying pair I cannot imagine. Really makes you feel Kyle Orton lucked out last year.
Good Christians Michael Vick and Pacman Jones spoke at yesterday’s rookie symposium, which Roger Goodell has apparently turned into an NFL version of Scared Straight. By all accounts, Vick’s speech was pretty amazing, so hopefully that will curtain this latest generation of players from drunk driving a car into a barn full of puppies.
Former Baylor men’s basketball walk-in Richard Hurd is someone that probably would’ve benefited from Vick’s ‘pay it forward’ message. Hurd is accused of trying to extort rookie sensation Robert Griffin III. Not sure exactly what the nature of the extortion was, but I hope it had something to do with socks.
Chad Ochocinco – or is it Johnson now? – let the commish know via Twitter that he was going to amass a bunch of fines this year, meaning he’d be visiting the end zone a lot. I’m all for the return of touchdown dance innovator Chad Johnson. First, though, he has to pass Brian Hartline on the Dolphins depth chart.
Percy Harvin has done his best not to turn his Minnesota disgruntlement into a distraction. Unfortunately, it really hasn’t worked. Should the Vikings begin making plans to move their unhappy #1 and, if so, which teams should be pursuing a deal?
And finally, since it’s a slow news week so far, let’s talk about the one thing all NFL fans have in common: hatred of our neighbors.
