Darrent Williams, a tragedy

You’ve all seen this by now, so I just had a few quick thoughts. I had dealt with Darrent Williams plenty of times in the Broncos lockerroom after games. He was always a great interview and a great guy. Even when he had a bad game and didn’t want to talk, he would be upfront about it and let us know.

He was the type of guy that folks say don’t exist in the sports world anymore. A good person.

You can always judge a person’s character by the reaction of the people they associated with. All you have to do is listen to the sports reporters in this town, and how devastated they are to understand what a terrible loss we’ve all suffered with this tragedy.

Goodbye Darrent, and thank you for sharing your life with us. You’ll be missed.

My type of competition

Where do I sign up for this?

Putting in long, grueling hours of couch-potato training just to win a TV sports-viewing marathon is simply not feasible, according to Jason Pisarik, who should know. At least not without incurring substantial personal risk.

“My wife would kill me if I did,” the Lombard, Ill., accountant said Monday from a recliner chair in front of a 15-foot screen tuned to college football bowl game after bowl game.

Pisarik was back at the ESPN Zone sports bar to defend his title in the Ultimate Couch Potato Contest against three challengers after watching for 30 consecutive hours a year ago.

I’m sure I could do this professionally.  Anyone want to sponsor me?

I’m back

Great to be back from my wonderful vacation to Venezuela.  I will have photos up sometime later.

I’ve been out of the news cycle for awhile so it’s time to read the papers.
