The Brown Five is a daily breakdown of five stories that Brown stumbled upon and cause his eyebrows to raise up a bit. This probably won't be daily because Brown has the attention span of a...hey look! A bicycle..
1) Bobby Knight...Go Raiders!
If you haven't already heard or seen it, you must check out this video of Robert Knight being approached about shooting at a man's house. The really funny aspect is Bob Knight chastising someone about cursing at him and asking him to do something impolitely. If I was mad at Bobby Knight, I'd throw a chair at him and choke him.
2) Sean Taylor jersey is number one on NFL.com
I dunno, seems a little odd to me. I understand wanting to memorialize guy, but it ain't like Dan Snyder or the NFL really are hurting for money. If they were going to be classy about it, they would take ALL the sales and donate it to a local Miami charity or create a Sean Taylor foundation for underprivelged kids or something. I have some hot sports opinion about the jersey wearer, but that might merit its own post.
3) Tampa Bay Dev- whoops - Tampa Bay Rays!
You'd think I was kidding, but no. The perennial AL East cellar dweller first changes the name and loses "Devil", then they change the jerseys to look less minor league, and now they are making some interesting moves to improve their team, and, dare I say, put up a fight in the division? Traded for Matt Garza and closing in on Troy Percival are pretty big moves for TB. I'm not saying they will legitimately challenge NY or BOS, but they sure can give Baltimore and Toronto a run for their money.
4) Is the NFL Network evil?
No. Sure, you might bitch and moan if you are forced to get Time Warner Cable, but that isn't my problem. I've read the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, and no where does it say, "all citizens have the unalienable right to watch every professional football game broadcast." This is business and free enterprise, folks. If you don't like that you can't get it, switch to satellite. If you can't, go to a sports bar. I guarantee this debate will come again next week as the Redskins game is on the NFL network and Sean Taylor's funeral is the Monday before the game.
5) Cowboys over Packers
That's my pick. Favre 1.0, meet Favre 2.0.
