Speed Read: Wait - WSU Cougar RB Almost Died?

It’s not often that injury news takes us completely aback, but that’s absolutely the case over in Pullman tonight. One slightly mentioned aspect of last weekend’s game pitting Washington State against Southern Methodist was WSU’s tailback, James Montgomery, suffering an apparent knee injury. Not that those aren’t serious, but, y’know… they happen.

James Montgomery WSU

But one thing that doesn’t usually happen is a potentially fatal injury that nobody recognizes immediately. That’s what apparently befell Montgomery during the game; after the game, he reported increasing discomfort with the knee, and went in for surgery on Sunday morning. It probably saved his life.

Lingerie Football’s New Sugar Daddy: Mike Ditka?

When we last left the Lingerie Football League, they were being bankrolled by Mitch Mortaza, a man of questionable tact who seemed to be primarily interested in being their sugar daddy so he could, y’know, spend time with hot women. Hardly a novel idea, of course, but you don’t normally see it manifested on so large a scale.

Ricky Williams Mike Ditka
(No doubt, Ditka’s just trying to recreate the magic from 10 years ago. It’s never the same the second time around, Mike.)

But that many women can’t be contented with just one sugar daddy, try as he may, and there’s certainly no shortage of old men with tons more money than shame. So it should come as no surprise that someone who famously endorsed a boner pill should be the next high-profile investor in lingerie football. Ladies and gentlemen, Mike Ditka!

Brog: Pennington’s Balls Deep Better Than Brett’s

Seems like the Jets trading for quatrogenarian mad bomber Brett Favre and dispatching weak-armed Chad Pennington was a home run for Eric Mangini’s charges, eh? If you listened to NFL TV domepieces since the deal, you’d think the move means the Jets now will do a better job throwing the ball deeper down field.

Chad Pennington Better Balls Deep Than Brett Favre Statistical Comparison

One small detail though, the Elias Sports Bureau reports that over the past four years, Pennington has been much, MUCH more effective than Favre on passing attempts of 20 yards or more.

Tim Graham of ESPN.com yesterday highlighted the figures in his blog, which I heard about today on Dan Le Batard’s WAXY-AM show in Miami. As you might expect, those statz has South Florida a little more excited about Pennington, with equal parts bemusement.

Great find by A.J. Daulerio over at DEADSPIN:

Sean Salisburyt

(Someone might consider upping the wattage on those softboxes)

Sean “The Brand” Salisbury has been unearthed doing commentary for a new site called OpenSports.com. Salisbury will apparently be on the Mike Florio schedule (seven days per week). We’ll see how long that lasts.

Honest to god, the first thing I thought of when I saw the URL “OpenSports.com” was it was somehow related to the gay sports site OutSports.com. But alas, Tim Hardaway is apparently not among the new site’s early wave of hires (though he’s available).

It’s a little amusing to see Cris Collinsworth covering the Olympics, but he’s no less qualified than half the reporters on-site. NBC Universal employees right now must feel a little like the National Guard. You can be 50-years-old and hopelessly underqualified for the job, but that doesn’t mean you won’t soon be in a funny looking uniform, halfway ’round the world on 48 hours notice.

Jim Gray Hollywood Star Crapped On

Sports TV execs are enjoying a brief respite from Jim Gray, as the mostly-unemployed broadcaster has called off the stalking for now, after landing the prestigious role of “boxing reporter,” on NBC’s Olympic coverage. I wonder if a monitoring anklet was part of the arrangement - and Dick Ebersol checking into his hotel as “Charles Bronson.”

Sean Salisbury: “Liberated” From Employment

We’re still reeling from ESPN’s announcement that the network bounced Sean Salisbury after 12 years.

Rabbi Sean Salisbury

L.A. TIMES codger Larry Stewart has Sean’s *exclusive* reax - for those of us who care: “I’d grown tired of being punished for not being an NFL superstar. Analysts who don’t work as hard as me, don’t prepare as hard as me, and don’t have my resume were making more than me just because of their ability to throw or catch a football.Read more…

Anybody Else Noticed How Big Salisbury’s Gotten?

Booksmith Will Leitch of DEADSPIN has your first (and only?) opportunity to glad-hand with Sean Salisbury tonight in Phoenix: “Competing with our (Deadspin) party tonight: A “Cancer Blows” charity event in Glendale hosted by Sean Salisbury and George Foreman. A noble cause, but we wonder how they will grill all that food.

(Vote! Vote! … oh, it’s too late, sorry)

It’s an outright tragedy that the gang from Deadspin will miss an opportunity to meet up with an esteemed member of the SHOTY’s pantheon of greats, especially considering last year’s hijinks in South Florida.

One thing if you go, don’t ask him about the Nutrisystem thing. From his alarmingly expanding wasteline (has anyone else noticed?), that’s probably a touch subject right now (we’ve also heard Salisbury recently had a bout with skin cancer).

Mike Golic

But if you see this guy, feel free to hammer him about his similar backslide (how many times you think he’s been asked about Jacobson since he’s landed?).
