Is Kaepernick's Arm Really This Strong?

When I saw this video I had to call b.s. on it. I know Nevada's Colin Kaepernick has a stronger arm than I'll ever dream of having, but to chuck it more than 200 yards across ESPN's campus is absurd. Check out the video to see if I'm wrong for questioning this feat.

Michael Vick Ditches Another Event

It seems that every other week we hear about Michael Vick not showing up for something that honors him. Not that he has to give an explanation, because personally he doesn't owe me anything.

WAVY-TV in Virginia reported that Vick was supposed to be the honored guest at the Southeastern Virginia Arts Association Gala. The event was held at the Half-Moon Terminal in Norfolk. Problem is Vick didn't show.

Vick was supposed to be given an award and the association said that Vick was a hero. Don't tell that to the people who shelled out $100 for a ticket to see the NFL star. They were so upset at Vick's no show that they walked out and left. I would've been pretty pissed myself if I went there only to find out he was gonna no-show the event.

However, it’s not clear from either the WAVY report or the invitation that Vick ever did say he was going to attend this event. On this one, I’m inclined to give Vick the benefit of the doubt. So far it's a he-say/we-say deal.


Quote Of The Week: Chad Ochocinco

Chad Ochocinco rating his skills during his MLS tryout in Kansas City:

"The only thing I'm probably good at is being fast as hell."               

Sometimes that speed is called into question on the football field.
