So I'm trapped at my mother's house today without my usual tools I use to wander around the web for NFL Jabber. Oh I could still do it, I really just don't feel like it. Instead I have decided to just be a sports fan today and browse around some of my favorite sites. Which leads me back here to The Bloghouse because I feel I have to share.
A couple of things I wanted to share are Sports by Brooks new girl, Teressa. Yep, that's both of them...Click on the link to see Teressa and here reasons.
Elsewhere on the net...Kissing Suzy Kolber does a fine literary piece on Sarah Shahi (with hot video) and the new Dolphins cheerleader, Ashley White...yummy.
Could you imagine the response from the Browns fans if Derek Anderson started the season as the QB? Michael David Smith discusses that being likely in The Fanhouse. (Straying from today's chick theme now...)
Mixing football and females... I stumbled across an interesting concept this week. A Librarian that loves fantasy football...and takes the time to blog about it. Stop in and check out the Fantasy Football Librarian.
The ProFootballTalk.com Turd Watch is celebrating 28 days without an arrest...the record keeps climbing. The Jax Jags are still holding a solid lead with 41 points.

The NFLPA is working overtime this week. They feel the Raiders are "too committed." The Raiders will be punished...they must be dealt with.
"I was notified that the (NFL) Players (Association) believes our total commitment to improving our football team has resulted in some violations of rules regarding practice standards," Lane Kiffin said in a statement released by the club. "The union has complained about the high level of intensity, player aggressiveness and fast pace of our practices and as a result, has taken away the final week of our offseason program."
It's all fun and games until someone gets shot in the nuts. Cheesy I know but I couldn't resist. Redskins rookie D-Back, LaRon Landry could not practice on Friday do to a paintball to the groin. His injury occurred while some of the gang went out to play Wednesday after work.
"I didn't know paintball was that dangerous," linebacker Marcus Washington said. "I hope it wasn't friendly fire."
San Antonio officials are looking to cash in on the Hispanic roots of Tony Romo when he and the boys come down for training camp this summer. They are hoping that people from the place that used to be Mexico will flock from miles around to see a successful Hispanic athlete. I don't usually pay attention to ethnicity but this is news...I would have guessed by the name that he was Italian.
"That's the way I would write the story line if I could," said John Solis, the bureau's executive assistant director of sales and marketing.
"Coming down to a city with 60 percent Hispanic population, (Romo) will have a lot of people surrounding him positively," Solis added. "We are looking forward to being tied to a class act."
Jeff Garcia "felt snubbed" by the Eagles. I think it's time you can quit crying and be happy that a team paid for you to be it's starter. When the Eagles do finally get rid of McNabb, he will be replaced by someone young enough to get away with having a MySpace page (I can say that because I'm only 36).
"I think there was a lot of anger within myself," the 37-year-old Garcia said, describing his feeling when the Eagles waived him goodbye after he led them into the playoffs last season as the very capable fill-in for the injured McNabb. "Here was finally a situation where I felt so comfortable and I felt like I had a good home and a good place, and I wanted to be able to experience more of that and, hopefully, not have to relocate all over again. That opportunity wasn't presented to me."
A few minutes later, Garcia gave a more abbreviated version: "I felt personally snubbed."

Johnnie boy tested positive for elevated levels of epitestosterone before his fight...or his...I don't know what to call it. Before he was knocked the %$#& out on June 2nd.
Tests on a pre-fight urine sample collected June 1 showed Morton's epitestosterone level was "more than 10 times the normal level for an athlete," commission official William Douglas said.
Since stepping into a haymaker that laid his ass out in the first 38 seconds of his MMA debut, Morton has fallen off the face of the earth. He refused to take a post fight drug test...apparently forgetting that he took a test the day before the fight. They frown on this and he is indefinitely suspended and the $100,000 he was to get for his time is being held.
"We've heard no phone call, no letter, no nothing," Douglas said. "I hope he makes the effort to contact us."

Byron Leftwich and David Garrard are saying that they have been warned of Daunte Culpepper being brought in for a visit.
"Anytime you have a quarterback of Daunte's caliber, it's smart to look into it, especially with me having one year left on my contract," Leftwich said.
Bill Walsh made a stop by Raiders practice. How cool would that be?
"It was important for me to get (Walsh) over here to practice," Kiffin said. "It's one thing to ask a question. It's another thing to have him watch practice and get some thoughts from him on what he's seeing out there and to spend more time with him obviously with some other questions. I've spent some time preparing for him."
Tom Coughlin is tired of all the pissing and moaning of his players.
"Let's just play the game -- talk is cheap -- let's play the game," Coughlin said as the Giants opened a mandatory three-day minicamp. "I would like it to stay that way."
