Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for June 5, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: June 05, 2012
The most exciting part of the NFL offseason is in full swing: the charity softball circuit! First, let’s take a look at Ravens RB Ray Rice, who has adopted an interesting fashion choice to befuddle opposing batters.
Better still – well, assuming you like to see children punished for being weaker than adults – is this scene during a softball postgame, where Dancing With the Stars superstar Donald Driver tosses his cleat to a kid in the crowd only for the kid to have it wrestled away by some hardcore foot fetishist.
Driver later tracked down the kid via Twitter and gave him a new pair of sweaty cleats along with some other Packers gear. As for the horrible lady that ripped the original shoe, she’s had to delete her Facebook after the internet bloodhounds tracked her down. The lesson? Don’t steal stuff from children in public view.
Speaking of stolen Packers regalia, a Super Bowl ring belonging to a Green Bay executive was recovered at a massive Chicago drug bust. This is what happens when you sell shares of your stock to just anyone, guys.
Here’s a couple longer reads to prepare you for the important (boring) events this summer:
First, in what is basically the direct-to-video sequel of last year’s lockout, the NFL and the referee union appear to be at a contractual impasse. The scab refs are on their way.
Second, here’s pretty much all you need to know about the current iteration of the Miami Dolphins, so that you aren’t lost when Hard Knocks starts. Try not to doze off.
Chris Johnson still believes he’s the best RB in the NFL, even if some silly Top 100 feature tells him otherwise. I don’t know about the best, but would you honestly rather have guys like Marshawn Lynch or Willis McGahee (both ranked ahead of him) over Johnson? I wouldn’t.
Lastly, Terrell Owens fired Drew Rosenhaus. Well, that should just fix everything, right? Welcome back to the NFL, Terrell!
