Why talk about Brett when you can talk about breasts? Yesterday's FCC ruling was a great reminder that Janet Jackson's Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction" was arguably the single most memorable moment in NFL history. That leads today's SN column.
Wouldn't you rather re-visit that one last time -- call it closure -- than talk about this rumor that Brett Favre might be ending his comeback bid, because the teams the Packers were willing to trade him to were -- gasp! -- probably not contenders.
(Wait: Favre would rather NOT play than play for the Packers in anything but a guaranteed-starter role. Wow, what a team-first icon worthy of Wisconsin fans' idolation.)
Meanwhile, I love college football media days: The ACC and Big 12 picked it up yesterday, allowing for discussion of the "trendy" picks like Clemson and Texas Tech. Can you imagine a Clemson-Texas Tech BCS national title game? No? How about them in the Orange Bowl? (Miami also hosts the BCS national title game a week later.)
Ron Artest to the Pistons? It's like the Pacers-Pistons brawl at the Palace never happened. Amazing.
Jeremy Shockey to the Saints? Over-under on his first Bourbon Street incident: 4 weeks.
I'm with Black Heart Gold Pants: Iowa's Kirk Ferentz must resign -- or be fired. Immediately. And he can take the AD down with him.
Full column here, including a dip into MLB's big storylines -- Matt Holliday becomes "Met" Holliday? Hmm...
