With the NFL Draft approaching, the Detroit Lions are still looking to trade the first pick but aren’t finding any takers, and aren’t likely to. It’s not that they aren’t interested in Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford, it’s just that they would rather trade down and take him because quarterbacks are expensive enough, but when you take them number one overall they get really expensive.
Considering that the position is the hardest to predict success for in the NFL, it’s a lot of money to invest in a player that’s more likely to be a bust than a success. So what can they do? Do they just pass on Stafford and take a safer pick? They could, but that would be a bit of a cop out. No, if the Lions have balls they’ll just opt not to pick anybody.

There are four pairs of siblings playing in the NBA. The Collinses, The Gasols, The Grahams, and of course, the Lopez sisters. They could soon be joined by a fourth: Jason Smith and Nene. A-whuh?!
Many parents push their kids into becoming professional athletes. The Prothe family of Fort Collins, Colo., apparently pushes their girls into dating them. And with Lauren Prothe set to wed Nene this weekend, and Ashley Prothe living with her boyfriend Smith, they’re not too far off from being one big, happy, tall family.
You would think that having never beaten another team in 17 attempts would be enough to keep a team from getting too cocky. Or the fact that the other team is the No. 1 team in the nation, while you are 2-2 and have lost 12 straight conference games.
But try telling that to Baylor tackle Jason Smith - as he told the FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, he’s already thinking about what defeating Oklahoma will mean to the Bears:
Thank god for the investigative journalism skills of Dan Gross of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. Yesterday, the NEW YORK POST reported on an anonymous Philly 76er who balloon-implanted sex worker Mary Carey “wrapped her legs around and made out with in front of clubgoers.”
It’s kinda embarrassing for said player, since Gross also reports that he said he was a “fan” of her movies and told her she was a “goddess.” Ugh. Read more…
