I want to start this off by saying thank you to Shaq Thompson. While I can never tell someone what to do with their money, I think it’s beautiful to see someone giving kids the chance to enter a camp for free. Times are hard for a lot of people and parents are struggling. We often see the news and it’s usually crime-filled with a lot of the crime against or by our youth and we always ask why. Well, the kids don’t know they’re loved. They don’t have a chance to nurture their talents or be exposed to their gifts. Some may see what an athlete like Shaq Thompson is doing as just a good gesture, but it can in fact be life altering/lifesaving.
If you take the time to look around right now you will see that sports camps can range from $75 a day to over $300 a week. Those prices alone will rule out a whole class of families.
How can camps be advertised to help the youth when you price out most them?
With that being said, this is just something to acknowledge and say thank you to Shaq Thompson and people like him who are making a difference. I am sure there’s a group of kids that will be forever grateful for your efforts.

Spice Adams is back at it with another video and this one is a classic. Adams tackled the Tom Ford track by Jay-Z for his parody “Pulled Pork”. Check this one out people, it’s funny.
Reggie Wayne had one of the best touchdown catches that we may see all season. Giants cornerback Aaron Ross tried to pick off a pass, but it bounced off of him and into the hands of Reggie Wayne for a TD. It’s only preseason, but this play is awesome regardless.
This is a great way to spice up an NFL rivalry. The New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton did a new credit card commercial where he ordered “Roasted Falcon” from the menu. I know the Saints fans will love this new ad.

Miami Dolphins TE Dustin Keller is done for the year, thanks to a low hit by Texans rookie safety D.J Swearinger. When asked about the low hit here’s what the rookie had to say:
“I was making a hit playing football,” Swearinger told the Palm Beach Post. “In this league you’ve got to go low. If you go high you’re going to get a fine.”
“The rules say you can’t hit high so I went low and I’m sorry that happened,” Swearinger told the Palm Beach Post. “I would think you’d rather have more concussions than leg injuries. Leg injury, you can’t come back from that. A concussion, you be back in a couple of weeks.
I guess wrapping a player up isn’t tackling anymore right? I get it, Swearinger feels another player losing his career is more important than him losing some money. However, the defensive players are in a no win situation in the NFL and these types of injuries may just be the beginning of what’s to come.

After losing wide-out Joe Morgan for the season last week, the New Orleans Saints have added another receiver to the team. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the team added former Cowboys and Chargers wide-out Patrick Crayton to the team on Monday.
He’ssssss Backkkkkkkk!!!! Well, maybe not, it is just preseason. However, Titans running back Chris Johnson looked like his old self tonight vs the Redskins. Johnson had a 58-yard touchdown that looked like a replay of a few years ago.
The ACL train that has been rolling around the NFL has made a stop in New Orleans. Saints announced today that they will be without wide out Joe Morgan who has torn meniscus and a partially torn ACL. Morgan averaged 40 yards per catch with the team last season. The Saints will also be without Defensive lineman Kenyon Coleman who has a torn pectoral.
The Manning brothers aren’t just talented on the football field. Eli and Peyton did a commercial for DirecTV showing off their rapping skills. This song and commercial is so horrible that it is absolutely awesome.

The Green Bay Packers have added former first rounder Vince Young to their roster. ESPN reported that the Packers were impressed with Young after his workout for the team and signed him to a one-year deal.
