The Chicago Bears signed quarterback Jay Cutler to a new seven-year deal. The Bears hoped for a shorter term but buckled during negotiations when Cutler was able to maintain the poker face he's sported since 2002. Reports are the deal does not include the postseason.
ESPN reported that tickets for the BCS national championship game Monday night between Florida State and Auburn were selling for as cheap a price as we've seen in years. The median price on the resale market was $799. You know what that means? We need a new definition for the word cheap.
The Cleveland Cavaliers' offer to trade Andrew Bynum to the Los Angeles Lakers for Pau Gasol hit a snag over the weekend. Apparently the snag arose when the Lakers front office said, “Wait, this is the same Andrew Bynum?”
University of Iowa men's basketball coach Fran McCaffery was ejected for a temper tantrum in the Hawkeyes' 75-71 loss to No.4 Wisconsin on Sunday. Some analysts expressed outrage over McCaffery's outburst. I remember when there had to be flying furniture for tantrums to cause any controversy.
Notre Dame's men's basketball team upset Duke in its first conference game since joining the Atlantic Coast Conference. Irish fans weren't surprised. After all, the game took place in January, not March.
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh called wide receiver Michael Crabtree “the greatest catcher of all time” after their win over the Green Bay Packers. It's hard to say who's slighted more with that comment, Jerry Rice or Johnny Bench.
The Kansas City Chiefs blew a 28-point lead to lose to the Indianapolis Colts in their AFC wild-card playoff game. It's hard to explain how that happens, but they just didn't have any Luck.
