QB Tony Romo and beauty pageant queen Candice Crawford tied the knot over the long weekend.

Dont worry. We know what youre thinking OMGZ SHAKING & CRYINGWHAT WAZIT LIEK?

Frankly who cares? Were more interested in what people get a million dollar quarterback and a beauty queen.

Answers: Stuff from Macys and Crate&Barrel.

Were assuming Tony and Candice were just trying to be nice and not asking for super expensive stuff. And there have been odder things put on wedding registries. My own cousin put a bicycle on his reg cause my familys classy like that.

But if were looking at the Money Person Earns to Store Value ratio, Tony wanting stuff from C&B would be the equivalent of me asking for stuff from Good Will or having the fam dumpster dive for gifts.

Anything people get them from Macys or C&B is going to be nothing nearly as nice as what is probably already in their mega-mansion.

But seriously, what do you get an NFL start and a beauty queen? They probably own everything and what they dont they can easily buy in a heartbeat.

We have some ideas.

1. A mirror. Because when youre that good looking theres no such thing as too many mirrors.

2. Jessica Simpsons new CD.

Awkward.

3. A GPS system. Because when youre that rich its easy to get lost in your vast estate.

If nothing else we know one thing Romo wouldnt get for his wedding a new NFL CBA.

Boom!

Rask: Last season 'something to rebound from' personally

BRIGHTON, Mass. – While David Pastrnak, Tuukka Rask and David Backes are back from competing in the World Cup of Hockey in Toronto, that doesn’t mean you’ll see those players on the ice over the next couple of days. Perhaps the trio will practice on Monday in the fourth on-ice session at main training camp, but Bruins GM Don Sweeney confirmed that none of those returning players will suit up against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the B’s preseason debut at TD Garden on Monday night.

“Yeah…absolutely,” said Sweeney when asked if those three players have been ruled out for Monday night. “They’re going to get through the weekend here. Next week, we’ll evaluate [them] when they get on the ice. But, all those guys will not be on the ice until next week.

“It might be case-by-case for each guy. Those guys have been playing for a while at a high level. It’s unique for David Backes coming into the organization, so he’d like to integrate himself. I talked yesterday with all three of them just to get a read of where they’re at. But, sometime first of next week, they’ll be on [the ice].”

Both Pastrnak and Rask have checked in with the Bruins media over the last couple of days after returning from Toronto, and the Bruins goaltender, in particular, has plenty of motivation coming off a down statistical season. The 2.56 goals against average and .915 save percentage were well below his career numbers, and people like B’s President Cam Neely have pointed to Rask as somebody that needs to have a better season for Boston to rebound back into the playoffs this year.

“There were a couple of years where the standards pretty high, so obviously when they go down there’s something to rebound from. You kind of know where you can be. That’s where I try to be every year and I’m working on being there this year, and taking us to the playoffs and moving forward,” said Rask. “But every year is a new year where you’ve got to work hard, and set your goals to be at your best. More often than not you hope [being at your best] is going to happen, and I hope this year is going to be a great year for us.”

Clearly Rask wasn’t alone in his struggles last season behind a mistake-prone defense that allowed plenty of Grade chances, and that could be a repeating phenomenon again this season for the Bruins unless the defense is substantially upgraded along the way.

As far as the other three B’s players still taking part in the World Cup, it could be a while for Patrice and Brad Marchand as Team Canada has advanced to the final best-of-three series that could also feature Zdeno Chara if Team Europe is victorious.
