Through 620 games of Monday Night Football, there were only 9 scoreless halves, and last night was one of them as the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns went scoreless in the first half. Bet you're glad you saw that, no? In the end, the Ravens roared out of the gate in the second half and won a 16-0 snoozer. In other Monday Night news, Jon Gruden has inked an extension that will keep him in the broadcast booth. A bit surprising, really. Would've figured he'd be in line for a high profile gig next year.

With the ink barely dry on his contract with Real Madrid, the team he said he dreamed of playing for, he's already contemplating the possibility of playing for Manchester City, the team that until the last year or so, he probably wasn't even aware of until they got some big money ownership. In the end, it is all about Ronaldo.

Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams figured out a way to turn two digits into $250,000. Shame the digits were his middle ones and the $250k was the fine the league dropped on him. What a tool.
I get why the Chicago Black Hawks would be looking to lock up Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews to long term deals, which they're close to doing, before they can see an offer sheet thrown their way, I just don't see how they can afford that many big ticket players. Somebody has to go, no?
One of the greatest pwnages/fail of all the times...
