Here's some big NFL news...

What do these guys have in common? Both left the game this weekend, neither for good.

It's amazing to me that all day today the news coverage has not been about the Colts knocking off the Pats or the Bears making it back to the Super Bowl for the first time in over 20 years but instead focused on the "earth-shattering" news that Bill Parcells has "retired" yet again.

This just in: Larry Brown likes to move around.

Whoopie. Parcells has "retired" more than Michael Jordan. His "retirements" are about as permanent as Lindsay Lohan's sobriety. There has literally been hours of TV & radio coverage as well as scads of Internet articles regarding the Tuna's most recent "retirement", with a smattering of Championship & Super Bowl Sunday coverage thrown in as an afterthought for a guy who has already pulled this stunt 3 other times. Wake up people-this is not BIG news. A blurb maybe, but wall-to-wall coverage? No way.

Breaking news: Terell Owens is a jackass

I'm sorry, I don't get it. This is a coach whore swore up and down to the Patroit's brass that he was done with coaching and then took a job with the jets 8 days later. He then "retired" again 4 years later. Why is it so surprising that he would "retire" from Dallas where the owner brought in players Parcells didn't want (hello T.O.) and he was forced to use a quarterback he didn't want who ended up making one of the biggest playoff choke plays in history. Plus he's 65 and can't relate to these prima dona athletes who don't want to listen to his stories anymore (hello T.O.) It was time for him to "retire" again.

This way next year when some coaching jobs open up Tuna can battle it out with fellow "retiree" Bill Cowher to play the "who can get the biggest contract & most power to come back and rebuild a team" game.

And this is big news?

I'm going to watch Prison Break and get away from the reality of pro sports at the moment.

Stop the presses: Donald Trump has bad hair.
