What Would Buddy Do?
I believe what Joe Banner means to say is, “Straight cash, homey”

tohomey.jpgGood for T.O. getting paid this week. Seems like a fair amount of guaranteeed cash for a guy who turns 35 this year, but hey, T.O. sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber, and none of us really know what that means.

Of course, now that T. Eldorado is liquid, there’s the little matter of all that money the Eagles’ legal department has established he owes them.  Luckily, Terrell is cool with that (little T really does know how to share!):

“I don’t mind paying that,” Owens told reporters, according to the Dallas Morning News. “It’s not a big deal considering what happened [Tuesday].

“They can have it how they want it. They want it in cash, pennies, they can get it.”

Another big year for the legal department

thats my money    my moneyI’m about a week late on this one, but I’d like to applaud the Birds legal department for yet another big year. Just when we thought we’d never have anything to do with T.O. ever-again-once-and-for-all, some enterprising young buck in Eagles LCA decided to go shake down Mr. Owens for some monies owed from the argy-bargy in November 2005.

Super duper!

Whilst it isn’t the All-Pro performance of the 2005 legal team, it’s still a nice shot in the arm for the organization.  Say what we will about needing playmakers on the field (and really, who hasn’t this week), but the Eagles sure seem to have playmakers on both sides of the ball in legal and corporate affairs.  

Nice work, boys.

no no this seems REALLY important

Attaguy, Arlen Specter.

Who cares that the Iraq war is quickly approaching its fifth year or that the U.S. economy is in the pooper — there is an assistant golf pro and former office gofer somewhere on the island of Maui who might be willing to make unfounded accusations about the New England Patriots! Summon the Sixth Fleet!

Whilst I understand that pro football does enjoy some special privileges under the law (antitrust exemption, nice big stadia built with public dollars), um, the cheating allegations still aren’t that big a deal.  As a sports media story (that is, Britney and Lindsay for the male 18-to-44 set), it’s solid gold.  But I don’t think Spygate qualifies as an affair of state.

Still, you gotta love that Specter’s little — dare I say it — jihad against the Pats seems fueled (at least a little bit) by his subtly masked passion for the Eagles!
