The Brown Five - 12/18/07

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) Roy Williams, suspended
The horse collar tackle was pretty evident, and I can't really argue as to why he shouldn't be suspended. I just wonder what the big to-do is about it. Are the Cowboys really concerned that we won't have a no-tackling, can't cover, overpaid, over-rated safety on the field? Granted, Patrick Watkins is out with an injury, but Keith Davis is available. Last resort, throw Anthony Henry back there and let Jacque Reeves start in Henry's spot.

2) Reggie Bush wants to play
This is a bad idea. This time, I'm going to stay objective because, in all reality, I think Reggie Bush is "Marinovich" overrated. If Payton plays Bush at all the rest of the season, he's leveraging 2008. A damaged PCL can be run on, but it puts a lot more strain on the other ligaments in the knee, opening the door for a more serious ACL or MCL injury. My guess is that Bush realizes he wasn't being productive, and Aaron Stecker is, so he fears that when they're all healthy, McCallister included, then Bush might be the odd man out.

3) Rory pisses Tiger off, again
Really, Rory Sabatini has to be the stupidest golfer on the planet. He was down by 20 some odd strokes in Tiger's Target Challenge where, essentially, all the players donate the winnings to the Tiger Woods Foundation. Well, Rory decides he's just going to Petrino the field and quits before the final round, take his check and to fly to Hawaii for Christmas vacation. Of all the golfers to piss off, do you really think that Tiger Woods is the guy do piss off? Really? Isn't that dooming yourself to infamy? Even Fred Couples gave him the warning "not to mess with the wrong guy" in Tiger.

4) The Mavs beat the Magic, find some of their own
The Mavericks, who were on a bit of a downswing last week, are back on top after beating the Orlando Magic in the fourth quarter last night. Dirk reminded everyone why he's the league MVP by draining 11 of his 31 points in the 4th, including a 3 pointer in the last bit to help eek out a 111 to 108 win. We even had a "Dampier plays solid defense" sighting. Don't let me sugar coat it though, this came down to the last seconds. Orlando is a good team, scary good, and shouldn't be overlooked in the East.

5) No, I haven't ignored my school's basketball team
I watch and follow Texas basketball, but I NEVER comment on it. Contrary to football or baseball, Texas basketball is something that I refuse to comment on. Seems that the team does well and the moment I mention how well they are doing, they screw the pooch in such a royal fashion, it's almost endearing. So, you won't hear from me on it.

i generally don't have a huge problem with the horse collar tackle if it is an act of desperation...i.e. "grab whatever the hell you can or else this dude is taking it to the house." but roy could have tackled donovan about 8 different ways but chose to do that.

reggie bush is not even close to living up to hype/#2 draft status...but todd marinovich he ain't...and he ain't going anywhere for '08.

rory sabitini is a douche bag of the highest order. when freddie couples is coming out and blasting you, you're an ass.
