The Brown Five is (what will hopefully be) a daily breakdown of five stories that Brown stumbled upon and causes 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) Tony Romo is dating...
Who gives a damn? Seriously, I was flipping radio stations and heard a long segment about what people should name Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson. What? Really? That's what we're worried about? Listen, as long as Romo has an above 100 quarterback rating and keeps winning games, he could be fucking Dale Hansen and I don't care.
2) The Mavs are on a bit of a skid
The Mavs have lost 3 in a row coming into a home stretch. Dirk's playing well, unfortunately, he's about the only one. This is supposed to be a championship team, so they'd better right the ship soon. Then again, it's only November and they've had losing skids before, so I'm not too worried. (Make sure you read Big's Dirk post)
3) The College Coaching Carousel
Let's see, who's been fired/resigned? Houston Nutt, Chain Gailey, Dennis Franchione, Bill Callahan, Phil Bennett, Guy Morriss, Lloyd Carr just to name a few. Who's going where? Shit if I know, but it'll be fun to watch. Off the cuff predictions put Fran at SMU, Nutt at Baylor, Gaily at Arkansas, Ferentz at Michigan.
4) The USA's gonna walk to World Cup 2010
CONCACAF might be the easiest road to the World Cup, and luckily, that includes the United States soccer team. Given that the US has drawn Cuba, Guatemala, and T&T, I'm not too concerned about qualifying.
5) The Boom King is dead...
We joke about a lot of things on this blog, but it usually takes one story to make us slam on the brakes and attempt to shake cobwebs out of our head. Sean Taylor, the standout safety for the Redskins, died this morning after being shot in the leg protecting his home during a robbery attempt. Taylor was what Roy Williams should be. He was a bust you in the mouth safety who knew how to cover his end of the field. The Taylor Family, the Washington Redskins and Area 51 have taken a huge loss today, so think a good thought for them.
