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!

Edelman says 'there was no maliciousness' to his Steelers comments

It's funny how during a week like this one, a singularly ridiculous act -- such as Antonio Brown's live stream of the Steelers postgame locker room celebration last weekend -- can lead to a series of brush fires that pop up only to be peed on and put out. 

That was the case yesterday as a comment Julian Edelman made to WEEI earlier this week about Brown's Facebook Live video was spun as a sort of vicious burn directed at the Steelers franchise. 

"That's how that team is run," Edelman said, a comment that read as a more serious indictment than it actually sounded. "I personally don't think that would be something that would happen in our locker room, but hey, whatever. Some people like red and some people like blue. Some people like tulips and some people like roses. Whatever."

That led to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being asked about Edelman's comments, and defending the honor of the Rooney family, during a press conference on Wednesday.

"I don’t think I need to speak much," Roethlisberger said. "We’ve got our trophies out there. I’ve got owners that I think are the best in the business. They’re family to us, and I’m sure if he talked to his owner, he would say the same thing about the Rooneys. Anybody in here in the football world or the regular world that owns the Rooneys knows what they stand for. It’s a blessing to call them a family."

And on and on it went. Later in the day, Edelman was asked about his comments during a conference call with Pittsburgh reporters.

So just in case you're keeping score, a Steelers player streamed a video of coach Mike Tomlin calling the Patriots "a-holes," which prompted a response from Edelman. That response prompted a response from Roethlisberger, whose response to the response then led to a response to the response to the response from Edelman.

Got it?

"Yeah, I mean I think it was taken out of context," Edelman said. "I have nothing but respect for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They’re an unbelievable franchise. It starts from the top with the Rooney Family, Coach Tomlin, I think they just mis[interpreted] – I mean, I don’t know, I may have said it, but I think more of that was that it’s not the way we would do it here. That’s just how that goes. There was no maliciousness about it, but it’s whatever. That’s what the media does, try to make stories."
