The Dallas Stars make a joke about Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o on the
scoreboard during Saturday night’s home opener.
The Dallas Stars opened the season on Saturday night with a reported sellout crowd.
Cowboys passing game coordinator/tight ends coach John Garrett has been hired as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ wide receivers coach, the latest change to Dallas’ coaching staff.
“It just seemed that everybody was told, offensively and defensively, that there are going to be changes and everyone needs to know, as Jerry (Jones) indicated, that every aspect of the organization is subject to change,” Garrett said. “When this opportunity came up, it was something that I was able to pursue and it worked out great.”
From Off the Bench:
Just when I thought that the Internet had finally run out of “Call Me Maybe” parodies, a group of Baltimore Ravens decided to rework Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit song to talk about today’s AFC Championship against the New England Patriots.
The song starts out lamenting about the belief that the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning would beat the Ravens in the divisional round and the rest of the musical track talks about how Baltimore will move onto the Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
The possible saving grace of the entire clip might be the guitar player in the background and his rockin’ Ravens head gear:
Hopefully, Bill Belichick saw this clip and used it as bulletin board material.
Hatcher waiting to hear where he’ll play in Cowboys’ new 4-3
Jason Hatcher started 16 games in 2012 as a defensive end in the Cowboys’ now-defunct 3-4 defense. With the team switching to a 4-3, Hatcher doesn’t know where he will fit, yet.
“[Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin] still doesn’t know where I’m going to play yet,” Hatcher told KESN-FM on Friday, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t know if I’m going to be the Warren Sapp in his 4-3 defense or not. He does have high hopes for me. I’m going to be a big part of this defense, so I’m excited about this role I’ll have in this upcoming season. I’m going to embrace it and be the best I can be.”
Jaromir Jagr wants to show he has a little something left. The 40-year-old is off to a pretty good start.
Jagr scored twice, assisted on the game-winner and had a hand in all four goals in his Dallas debut, and the Stars opened the lockout-shortened season with a 4-3 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.
“Too bad they signed him,” said Radim Vrbata, who had two goals and an assist for the Coyotes. “For me, a Czech guy, that’s what he does. He played in Czech during the lockout the whole time and you can see he knows what he’s doing out there.”
