"It Girl" of the week: Ashley Alexiss

This week's "It Girl" of the week is Ashley Alexiss.

Florida State football player helps catch burglary suspects

When two burglars decided to break into Florida State cornerback Nick Waisome's apartment they apparently picked the wrong place.

Waisome found two burglars in his apartment on July 5 and I guess he let his emotion get the best of him because he chased them down and managed to catch one of the suspects, 34 year old Tavares Rumph.

According to Tallahassee police, Waisome caught up with one of the men in the rear of the building and knocked him down before then pursuing the second man, calling police, and preventing the man from fleeing in a friend's car.

The second suspect, 23 year old Mario Crawford got away. At least he did that time. About three weeks later Waisome

 "I figured they didn't have a gun because if they did they would've shot me," said Waisome. "But when they started running than I just decided I wanted to get one person at least," he said.

About three weeks later Waisome noticed Crawford and the getaway car at a gas station. Crawford had been wearing a pair of Waisome's shorts he obtained during the break in. Waisome contacted police again, and through his taking the car's license plate number and surveillance video, the suspect was later arrested.

Jimbo Fisher should hope that Waisome would call the police before chasing down criminals before something tragic occurred. He also should hope Waisome is adept at stopping opposing receivers as he is at fighting crime.

Ex-Lion Al "Bubba" Baker says he has a man crush on Ndamukong Suh

For those that can remember back to the late 1970's and early 80's, the Detroit Lions had a pretty good defensive line. Heade by Doug English and the headliner Al "Bubba" Baker, the Lions front four was known as the 'Silver Rush'.

Baker made a special appearance to the Lions training camp and says that this Lions defensive line could be better than the 'Silver Rush' edition. he also admitted to having a man crush on defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.   

“I think we all have seen what they’ve assembled here, and the front that they’re in, they have an opportunity to do something,” Baker said. “I think these guys have the ability to break any record we ever had as the Silver Rush — by far.”

"I have to admit I have a man crush on Ndamukong Suh. I've already told my wife," Baker said. "If I had a body like that, I'd still be playing.

"There's no one single human being that can block Suh. He doesn't exist. King Kong, but he's retired."

Baker is the latest defensive lineman to praise Suh and the way he plays the game. Former Pittsburgh Steeler great mean Joe Greene also had some positive words about Suh and both feel the league should stop trying to rein him in so much.
