I’m heading out of town for the weekend – going to Vegas to watch the WCC hoops tournament – so there’s a chance this will be my last blog for several days. Therefore, I wanted to go out in style (or, at least, with a well-intentioned experiment).
The Cowboys cut receiver Terrell Owens last night – the third time in his career his inability to get along with people forced a team to dump the talented player. Owens is still ultra-productive, but which team is going to give him another chance?

This might not be such a slam dunk for the Cardinals, after all.
As expected, Kurt Warner has taken the 49ers’ offer back to Arizona.
Free-agent quarterback Kurt Warner and his wife, Brenda, returned home to Arizona this evening. Now, the waiting begins.
