Next time, Braylon Edwards should just dial
Braylon Edwards will dress but not start for the New York Jets on Sunday after his drunk driving arrest in the wee smalls Tuesday morning, but a larger question remains: just what is the PlayerProtect program (long on security, short on grammar)?
Player Protect, according to its website, is a licensed, bonded security agency adept at managing just such situations as that in which Edwards found himself. If you're a Jets player and you've had a few pops, all you have to do is dial a number and a car with a security person will arrive. In fact, you might as well have another pop and tip generously because ... you pay nothing for the car. Now if only there were designated dialers...
The Commonwealth Games chief rushed to New Delhi as construction delays, building collapses and, oh, a little dengue fever for good measure threaten the Oct. 3 start of the games. England warns that the event is on a "knife-edge."
The Boise blues
Ahead of their game against Boise State, the fine folks at Oregon State decided to paint their field blue. When you're a 17 1/2-point underdog (said former college editor, Matt Rennie, who misses very little: "That seems like a high number."), why the heck not? The only real mystery is why these guys aren't wearing masks while they apply the paint. One guy does, however, protect his ear drums.
Mmmmm ... icing ...
