NFL lockout after school special

The lockout is still in its infancy and already NFL players are already finding ways of getting themselves into trouble.

Seriously. Check this out.
Dez Bryant gets kicked out of the mall for low slung pants.
True story. Apparently his pants were hanging too low for mall standards and he got booted. When police arrived, Dez threw his friend under the bus and said it was his friends pants that were too low.

Childish enough for you? No? How about this:

Aqib Talib charged with shooting at, pistol whipping sisters boyfriend.
Tampa Bays cornerback decided to take the role of the protective brother a bit too far. And it wasnt just Talib. Mamma Talib also (allegedly) got in the action.

Per NBC:

Once there, according to Sarans boyfriend Shannon Billings, Talib produced a handgun and attempted to pistol whip him with it. According to the report andBillings account, Okolo Talib, theNFLstars mother, as well as Talib himself fired shots in Billings deirection as he fled the scene on foot.

First: Props to NBC for spelling direction incorrectly. Second: What the hell did Billings do!?

Dez Bryant sued for not paying for his bling.
Our buddy Dez was back at it, getting sued for failing to pay for 246,000 worth of bling.

If that wasnt enough, another group also decided to sue Dez for not paying almost 589,000 in jewelry.

Holy smokes. The guy owes more than 850,000 in jewelry. Where the hell is he wearing all this stuff? Even Mr. T thinks this is excessive.

Were not going to do the math to find out how many years worth of salary itll take us to hit even a portion of what Dez owes in bling bills. Too depressing.

Oh look more millionaires not paying for their bills.
Everyones favorite NFL Twitter hound, Chad Ochocinco owes over 11,000 in clothing from Amm OneExclusive Wear. Hes been ordered by the court to pay his bill.

We think his outfit is punishment enough.

Whos letting these NFL stars walk away with so much merchandise without paying for it? Theyre pulling in more bank than most countries and are having issues paying for their bills.

Who knew that the NFL was really an after school program to keep players from getting into trouble? Its like the Boys & Girls Club for grown men.

Amazing.

If this is just what the lockout offseason is like we cant wait to see what the fall brings when these guys are used to practicing and playing.

Two-goal night for Pastrnak not enough for Bruins in 4-2 loss to Avalanche

Two-goal night for Pastrnak not enough for Bruins in 4-2 loss to Avalanche

BOSTON – Some nights are emotional, come-from-behind efforts full of hope and energy that the Bruins have turned a corner, and then others are like Thursday night’s slog against the Colorado Avalanche. 

The majority of the Bruins simply didn’t show up to start the game, and most of them never really fully showed up in a 4-2 loss to the Avalanche at TD Garden that snapped a 4-0-2 stretch of games with points for the Black and Gold. 

It all started with 4-on-4 play during the first period when Matt Duchene was allowed way too much time and space in the offensive zone, and hammered a shot past Anton Khudobin while all alone in the slot. Seven minutes later the Bruins power play was leaking oil all over the ice, and Torey Krug laid out for a puck at the blue line while he couldn’t keep possession. Instead Nathan MacKinnon beat him in a race down the ice and buried a shot past Khudobin to give Colorado a commanding, early 2-0 lead over Boston. 

A John Mitchell score on a short side wrist shot off the rush to makes it a 3-0 advantage, and that’s when things turned into the David Pastrnak Show. 

The 20-year-old scored a pair of goals to get the Bruins back into the game, electrify the crowd and give Pastrnak an amazing 18 goals scored in 23 games this season. The first was a breakaway after a long stretch pass from Tim Schaller connected with the dangerous Pastrnak, and the second was a bazooka one-timer off a Brad Marchand feed from the corner. 

Unfortunately the Bruins couldn’t hold onto that momentum while playing at their lollygagging pace for the night, and allowed a late Carl Soderberg score late in the second period that wiped out all of their momentum.

It was a rough night all-around, and that goes for Khudobin as well while allowing four goals on 20 shots that dropped his record to 1-4-0 on the season.
